At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well—the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free.

Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos’s most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he’s hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he’ll go to end Dragos’s reign of evil—even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne’s tender heart.

Another one of those series where I loved it in the beginning, and well I haven't been too impressed with most of the second half of the series. This book was one of the better ones. And honestly I've been interested in Hunter since he was introduced.

Hunter has never seen Corinne before now, but there is something about her he recognizes. When Brock and Jenna are delayed in Alaska for longer than expected, Hunter volunteers to escort Corinne home. But things don't go as plan when Hunter realizes that the ones closest to Corinne knew about the abduction all those years ago. Hunter is unable to let Corinne leave his side and must protect her while she searches for the one person that means the world to her.

The story switches between Hunter and Corinne's story and Chase's POV. Chase is spinning out of control and no one but himself can help him. I almost felt like this book was more setting up Chase's book than being Hunter's story. There a few twists, not too shocking. Except the one at the end.

The book was descent. I think at this point this is just another series I just want to get over with. But I'm really looking forward to Chase's book.

Rating: 3/5
