Book Description:
A soldier weary of life . . .

Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire -- a nightmare in his mind -- against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live. Until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.

A Valkyrie assassin dispatched to destroy him . . .

When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow -- accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings -- particularly lust -- emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill.

Become competitors in a legendary hunt.

The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity -- as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world -- to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
Okay so Nikolai from the first story has nothing on his brother Sebastian. Sebastian oozes sexy. Being on of the brothers that Nikolai turned against his will, Sebastian has wanted to die for his entire immortal life but when Kaderine busts through his castle doors and tries he realizes there is a reason to be happy about his immortality... his Bride!

Sebastian's vulnerability is endearing but would have ended up making him unappealing if not for his commanding and wicked side. He's not dominating but he's rather a take charge and please my woman type of guy and that is very sexy. Kaderine seems to think so.

I liked the reactions of Kaderine who begins feeling after centuries of emotionalessness due to the lose of her sisters. And every moment of her competing in the Hie was fascinating and worth the read.

I am looking forward to Regin's story after Kaderine gave that criminal boss her number.

Cole really is weaving an excellent story.
