In a thrilling Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a woman fights to free herself from the grip of the vampire trying to possess her...
In a beautiful compound hidden away from the world, Emeline Sanchez tries to blunt the pain that has wracked her body ever since her terrifying ordeal in the labyrinth beneath the city—when she was forced to exchange blood with an evil master vampire.
Now, it’s his voice that haunts her...that calls to her in the dark...that never lets her rest. And while the children that she helped to free from his clutches struggle to heal, watched over by their Carpathian protectors, Emeline knows one thing: She must sacrifice herself to keep them all from harm...
Emeline Sanchez never felt worthy of love. She grew up homeless and hungry on the street and that marked her forever.
Even now, living under the protection of Tariq Asenguard and surrounded by Carpathian warriors, she knows that she’s living on borrowed time. Because if anyone discovers the secret that she’s hiding, she won’t make it out alive.
Her dreams are becoming more real and are filled with visions of the one man who both frightens her and ignites her desire. After a harrowing attack on the compound, she would give anything to believe that they were meant to be.
“So you have no objection if I attempt to bind you to me with the ritual words. My soul to yours, understanding it cannot possibly work if we are not true lifemates. With the full understanding that if it did work, you would be bound to me for all eternity.”
Dragomir Kozel is one of the most ancient and feared of the Carpathians. His scars tell the tales of all of his sins - sins that he committed to protect his race. He never thought he would be one of the fortunate ones to actually find his lifemate until her voice brings him out of the dark.
He’s going to fight with everything he has to protect her and her secret. Even if it means his own destruction.
So many firsts. All perfection. All sensation. The beauty of having a lifemate was beyond anything he had imagined in all the hundreds of years he had sought her. He thought about how he had decided to go back to the monastery because the modern world and the women in it had seemed beyond his reach, yet here she was in his arms, better than any fantasy he had ever imagined. He knew he had to share that knowledge with the others so they didn’t make the mistake he almost made.
In Dark Legacy, Christine weaves another epic love story that is both steeped in magic and sizzling with her signature heat!
Dragomir and Emeline’s story is a tale of sacrifice, of longing and finally of redemption. And it’s because of this unforgettable combination that the Dark series will always captivate us like no other...
