Maria Ravensford is a Dhampir on a mission of vengeance.  She is out to revenge the death of her younger sister at the hands of Rogue vampires, and she will use every skill she has to make this happen.

Marak the King of Vampires and a Warrior to boot is tired of being fixed up with vampire women, especially ones that are to be a good political match.  He knows all want him to produce an heir but he wants it on his own terms.  What he doesnít count on is running into the petite spitfire who is out for vengeance.  He is mesmerized by her and does manage to save her from death in the nick of time, but he doesnít count on his need to mate with her.

What will happen when Marak takes Maria back to the Kyn and claims her as his own?

I have mixed feelings after reading Dark Embrace.  I loved the overall story and Ms. Carterís writings have definitely found a fan in me.  But I kept feeling like I was reading an offshoot of J.R. Wardís Brotherhood Series.  There were enough similarities that were they people they would be step siblings or cousins.  This might just be my feelings and if this type of story is one that you enjoy then you should pick Dark Embrace up.  As I stated Ms. Carter wrote a good solid story with sexy heroes and strong heroines.
