When a young special education teacher unwittingly attracts the attention of a strange man on her late night walk home, she winds up with a supernatural guest she can’t evict. For some reason, Charlie, the dominant immortal believes she is of fairy descent and has magical powers. He demands her complete submission and cooperation, refusing to free her until she promises to help him.

Charlie sees the power in Sasha and believes she has the ability to undo the curse placed on him by a jealous lover one hundred years before. He also loves toying with the feisty mortal, doling out humiliating punishments while arousing a lust in her that leaves them both hungry for satisfaction.

His habit of emotional detachment crumbles as he falls for Sasha, yet when he discovers she carries a secret that relates to his past, the betrayal nearly destroys him. He must decide whether he can ever trust a woman, or give into instinct and walk away from what might be his only chance at love and redemption.

Publishers Note: This book contains elements of BDSM including spanking, bondage and erotic sex scenes.

What did I read? Seriously, what was that? I love vampires, I really do. Especially hot British ones. But, ugh, this book was all kinds of cringeworthy. It was simply bad.

To start, the beginning was super weird. I didn't know if Sasha knew about vampires or not before meet Charlie or what. And I also was confused at first if Charlie was a bad guy or not, considering that he pretty much gave chase to Sasha. And the spanking was a bit too much also. That really was one weird ass scene.

Sasha and Charlie were just horrible characters, in my opinion. In the beginning when Charlie basically barged in and didn't leave, I just didn't get why she didn't insist more that he left. It frustrated me so freaking much. Sasha was such a pushover and Charlie simply was a bite, as if he still lived in the past.

So, no, I would definitely not recommend this book. I like my fair share of dominant vampires, but in the case of this book it was a bit too much.
