In an explosive novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a human woman ignites the desire of her Carpathian lifemate - and of an ancient vampire with a score to settle.
After the devastating loss of her entire family, Lorraine Peters heads to the woods searching for peace of mind and anything to quell the anger in her soul. Instead, she stumbles upon a scene of horrific violence, as one man lies helpless in the face of three attackers.
Andor Katona's existence has been a harsh one, living for centuries as a monk in the Carpathian Mountains. Unable to find his lifemate, he almost welcomes his release from a colorless and unfeeling world at the hands of the vampire hunters who have mistaken him for their prey. That is, until a whirling ball of fury bursts onto the scene, determined to save him.
In one glimpse, in one breath, Andor recognizes Lorraine as his lifemate, but it will take more than their telepathic connection to convince her of their immortal bond. Lorraine is a lethal combination of cunning and courage. So much so that she captures the attention of a master vampire, one who has already lost what was once irreplaceable to him. One who will strike with deadly precision at Andor and his ancient Carpathian comrades in a war to end all wars. . .
Lorraine Peters was seeking solace in the wilderness when she witnesses a vicious attack. The victim should have been dead as there was a stake protruding from his chest. He’s alive - if only barely - and that’s when her life changes forever.
The man claims that not only is he an ancient vampire but that she’s the lifemate he’s searched centuries for. The connection between them cannot be denied and she’s willing to fight with everything in her to get him to safety.
With the help of his Carpathian brothers, they come up against a foe that is stronger than they ever imagined. For Lorraine, it’s only the start of something incredible.
Andor was intimidating up close and he could kiss like an angel— or devil. The man was temptation itself. She was used to men who seemed powerful and maybe even a little dangerous. She lived in the world of martial arts. The men were physically fit, often in jobs that put their lives in jeopardy, and could definitely protect themselves and their loved ones. Andor was in an entirely different category— a scary one.
Andor Katona was an ancient ready to walk into the darkness. Until he’s saved by a female who’s a warrior in her own right. Lorraine demands that she be able to stand next to him and meet evil head on.
She’s as fierce as any Carpathian and is determined to prove her worth. Despite all of her courage, Andor can feel how truly fragile his lifemate is. He’s going to prove to her that she alone holds his warrior heart in her hands and that together they can defeat the attack that they know is surely on the way from the vile Vadim Malinov.
I am not a possession, silly man.
In Dark Sentinel, Christine introduces us to a brand new kind of lifemate! Lorraine walks into danger right along with Andor. She’s equal parts bold and vulnerable in a way that turns the anticipation up more than a few notches.
Combined with the off-the-charts chemistry that is always a hallmark of the Dark Series, the result is a sizzling Paranormal Romance with enough action to keep the adrenaline cranked up to high…
