Synopsis: Winter, a hybrid, has spent her life at war. A group of humans who are part demon, the hybrids, along with the lupines and nightwalkers, have dedicated their lives to defeating demons and protecting humanity. Yet, despite their united cause, the three groups share an uneasy alliance.

When hybrid military compounds come under attack from demon insurgents, Winter has no choice but to turn to the lupines and nightwalkers for assistance. It's a partnership based on necessity and she has no intention of letting down her guard with either group.

Marcus, the nightwalker Lord, has other plans. The immediate attraction between him and Winter promises a passion he can't ignore. To claim her as his own, he'll not only have to fight the demons who seem hell-bent on destroying her, but her own misconceptions about him and the nightwalker race. It's a battle he refuses to lose.

This one was a hard one for me. Overall, I would say I enjoyed the book, but I had some things that upset me (frustrated me).

I found the concept for the book super interesting. I mean, binding one's soul with that of a demon's is pretty cool. I think that's why I picked it up in the first place, there aren't a lot of books I've read about hybrids and such. So it was fun in that respect. I did like Winter. She was stubborn and strong and could fight and keep up with the rest of them. I'm always about females who can push to the front of the lines and keep their place there.

The hardship I had with this book came in the form of one Nightwalker/vampire. Yeah, he was sexy and downright scintillating, but I have a super hard time with possession and those who must posses their loved ones. I have a hard time with possession because I've been there and it sucks. And although I get the need of vampires and werewolves to be possessive of their mates, this book seemed to bring it in a kind of crazy dose. Like Marcus, the sexy vampire, wanted her submissive and tamed. At first it sounded like he wanted to be able to give her orders and her immediately obey like a little puppy. That bothered me.

I simply cannot stand orders being given, no matter how much someone may love or care about you. It's just not cool, to say the least. I will say this though, in the end, I think Marcus realizes that he won't be able to completely reign her in and he seems okay with it. Winter seems to calm down herself and want to be reigned in a little bit. I didn't believe it as a whole because no one turns around that fast, but it was believable to an extent.

Overall, the book had good pacing and action and I enjoyed different plot points. The writing was good even if I didn't enjoy some of the character traits. But, I will say that I really do want to read the sequel because I would like to find out what happens to some of the other characters. And, the book was definitely action packed and a fun read with demon hunts, war lords, sparring with werewolves and some steamy scenes.

The beginning was a bit slow for me. There wasn't anything that pulled me into the story but with only 10 pages I didn't think I would gain a wrinkle over lost time. However, I was hooked when lovely Lord Ashton asked the haughty upper classCharlotte to get on his wooden horse. Yes, a wooden rocking horse of all things! From there the story... exploded. Literally exploded in a oddly unquie way!

Great few minutes of inky goodness! & no wrinkles!

Oh, I really liked this one! Too good not to read again another day & another & another. *grin*

The whole concept of fallen into a painting was just too wonderful. I've spent a far amount of times at art museums in Washington DC and New York City and I can say even I have thought about falling into a painting or sitting where the artist was once standing. I started to drift into my own thoughts on this concept and had to pull myself back to finish this wonderful story.

Our lovely man candy was lusting after the woman in the portrait then he was soon in it. However, he didn't eactly get what he desired. LOL! This poor man will have to wait to fall in another day to be able to touch her with out being punished!

I wanted more but hopefully he will fall back into the painting once more ;)
