What the book has to say:
Stalked by a vampire. Stolen in the night. Seduced by a lover. Anthropology student Shayna Prentiss wakes up to find herself trapped in a world she never knew existed—with a man she cannot escape…nor resist.
Drawn to her beauty. Driven by lust. Doomed by his destiny. The vampire Marius knows he must bond with this captivating mortal with hidden powers…or both their races will be destroyed forever.
Bound by a blood chain that seals their fates together, Marius and Shayna must stand and fight the ultimate enemy—a madman hell-bent on destruction who will test every ounce of their strength, their power, and their passion. When the final weapon is unleashed, will their love remain unbroken? Or will darkness shatter their chains…for eternity?
What I have to say:
Marius Briggs has one chance to stop his father from gaining control of an extinction level weapon but that means he has to bring Shayna Prentiss from the human world into the vampire world in this spectacular paranormal romance.
This exciting and fascinating world just gets better and better with lots of suspense, excitement, passion and a fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of captivating characters that I just can't get enough of. Marius' emotional issues hold him back but that doesn't stop him from being a sexy, strong and determined warrior and with Shayna by his side - this couple takes the world by storm and their attraction is out of this world hot which of course leads to some hot and steamy sex scenes including some very inventive ones.
Lots of action and excitement builds spine tingling tension throughout the story keeping the reader on pins and needles waiting for what will happen next while unexpected twists courtesy of the author and the maniacal evil mastermind ensures that readers are surprised throughout the story. Additionally, the learning curve for Shayna's hidden powers adds some spice while the time crunch that the couple is under send the tension level skyrocketing and ensures that there is never a dull moment. The well written scenes and details paint vivid images that bring the story to life while the well planned events ensure that the reader can't put the story down.
Once again, Caris Roane spins a spell binding web of entertainment with a complex and sexy world full of unique and delightful elements and sexy vampire warriors that just want to steal my heart and I can not wait to find out what happens next.

Introducing Caris Roane:
I confess I've had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I've been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King--and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire--one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire.
For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. My special vampire world, published by St. Martin's Press, is introduced in the first book called, ASCENSION (12-28-2010). The second book, BURNING SKIES (May of 2011), opens up the world a little bit more. And even as I write this, I'm on the final draft of my third novel, WINGS OF FIRE (September of 2011). What a thrill it has been to live with my ascended vampires through the creation of this extraordinary, multi-dimensional world!
For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension.
With every hope you'll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane
