Goodreads Blurb:Dominic of the Dragonseeker lineage, one of the most powerful lines the Carpathian people has, ingests vampire blood laces with parasites in order to be able to go the very heart of the enemy camp and learn their plans. It is a one way mission. He knows he has little time once the parasites and the blood go to work. He plans to get in fast, relay the information to the leader of the Carpathians living in the area and go out fighting—an honorable way to end his life.
Solange Sangria is one of the last of the jaguar people, a royal pureblood. Her people, once many are now nearly extinct, a dying species that cannot recover from the choices they made over hundreds of years. She has long been alone, fighting to save the remaining women who are able to shift, from the hands of Brodrick the Terrible, her own father who slaughtered her family and everyone she loved. Wounded, weary, she plans one last battle, hoping to stop the man who has made an alliance with the vampires, accepting she will not come out alive.
They are two warriors who have lived their lives alone. Now, at the end of their time, they find each other, a complication, neither saw coming.
Darcy's Review:Usually the heroes in this series are so alpha and almost over board with their "You must obey me" ways, so it was great to read this one and the hero wasn't like that. Dominic was very confident in himself, so confident in himself that he could accept Solange and the warrior woman that she is. He accepted that she knew her limits and her strengths. I think they way that they both met, dreaming about the other, helped them accept the them. It seemed like the whole book was a quiet courtship between them, all the while still battling those that have chosen to go vampire and the evil jaguar men, moving along the larger story arc that has been going on over the last few books.
