The stranger silently summoned her across the continents, across the sea. He whispered of eternal torment, of endless hunger... of dark, dangerous desires. And somehow American surgeon Shea O'Halloran could feel his anguish, sense his haunting aloneness, and she ached to heal him, to heal herself.
Drawn to the far Carpathian mountains, Shea found a ravaged, raging man, a being like no other. And her soul trembled. For in his burning eyes, his icy heart, she recognized the beloved stranger who'd already become part of her. The imperious Carpathian male had compelled Shea to his side. But was she to be his healer... or his prey? His victim... or his mate? Was he luring her into madness... or would his dark desire make her whole?
As someone who was in doubt of reading the Carpathian’s I’ve fully turned around, this was a magnificent story, dark and somewhat violent. But the connection between Jacques and Shea is undeniable and strong, it pulsates from every page, making the reader feel the possessive and protective instincts of Jacques and the confusion of Shea. The threads of Carpathian lives woven with such color by Christine Feehan you can feel de despair of the Carpathian men whom have not yet found their lifemate.The world and rules of their ways show a imaginative and rich fantasy and every Carpathian I’ve met so far makes me hungry for their stories.
Dark Desire is a story packed with the adventure of a love so claiming, so complete, it but all leaves you reluctant to put the book down, for every page wants you to turn the next as the events reveal themselves. Ms. Feehan has struck gold with her Carpathian series!
