Posted by brriske
Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and…complete surrender.
While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, tests his sanity and challenges his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her? Or will he lose what remains of his soul and become a true beast?
This book is the 5th in the Rulers of Darkness series and ends in an HEA. Gabriel is a vampire that hates humans. He was tortured and sexually abused by a human for years. Once he was freed, he fought to free all slaves and became the king of the outcast faction of the vampires in Las Vegas. The irony of Gabriel becoming fixated on a human slave, Jordan, is not lost on any of his followers. Even though this story is fantasy, human trafficking is not. The abuse the humans endure is detailed and unpleasant, but necessary to show how much suffering the evil ones in this story are doing.
