REVIEW - Undying Desire (The Enclave #3) by Jessica Lee
Release Date: 21 April 2014
Guerino Lombardi's world just went to shit. Vampire and second in command of the Warriors of the Enclave, he's put everything on the line to save his best friend from what has to be the worst blow a man can take. Kenric, his friend and master of the Enclave, has a daughter, something believed impossible in the vampire world, and word has it she wants her father and his Enclave dead. Guerin is determined to protect Kenric, keeping the secret from him until he knows for sure if this daughter really exists and if she wants revenge.
Eve Devonshire is a woman hiding in plain sight. Not completely human, but not quite a vampire, she's accepted by neither race but is more powerful than either one. Her life has consisted of half-truths and disguises, never belonging or living in one place for any length of time. But now some have heard rumors of her existence and want nothing more than to trap her and dissect her like a lab rat.
To stay alive, Eve can't trust anyone, including the alpha vampire with midnight eyes and a thirst for pain and submission. With her enemies nipping at her heels, Eve has Guerin cornered, and both are determined to get the answers they're looking for or die trying...if they can fight their desires long enough.
Contains hot alpha male vampires, including one with a taste for sexual submission that will lead to some highly charged erotic scenes involving anal, BDSM, various restraints, floggers, and whips.
My Opinion 4 STARS
If you are not into reading about BDSM then this book is not for you. Although you could read this as a stand-a-lone book you really need to read the other books in order to get a sense of what the enclave has been up against so far and why Guerin has travelled so far for his mission.
Eve is a woman who is used to having to move regularly and keeping her true self hidden. A human/vampire hybrid and the daughter of a master vampire and a very strong female vampire, Eve is strong and has powers that others would love to get their hands on.
Guerin and Eve have a complicated relationship to start with especially as Eve owns a BDSM club and Guerin is a sub in the bedroom only. Both find something in the other that they had been repressing or otherwise ignoring their desires.
We are introduced to old sires and enemies that need help dispatching, along with a family reunion. Guerin shows us how far he is prepared to go to protect both Eve and Kenric.
The only down side for me is that the Markus issue was never cleared up. I would love it if we got and ending even in novella form for Markus and Alex as i hate things being left like that.
A brilliant series.
