Amazon Summary:
Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest—and most erotic—place of all.

A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man—vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability—a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence—a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining.

A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed—and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata’s powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she’s forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata’s life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond—and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.…

My Comments:  Not sure I'm going to be able to finish this series though there was a character introduced in this book that I'm interested in (of course he's not until book 9, grrrr).  Anyway, this book had the same failings as the last one, I thought the conflicts that the two heroes battled were far too easily resolved and the fact that Renata asks to drink Nikolai's blood and he allows this without any sort of feeling of disgust considering the blood bond just didn't make sense to me.  Nikolai is abducted and forced into blood lust - but that all goes away in Renata's presence.  Give me a break Ms. Adrian.  You've set blood lust up to be this overwhelming, to the brink of no return happening and then in this book it is glossed over and not dealt with.  Something's amiss.  I'm not sure I can read books 6-8 just to get to nine, though I did buy 6 tonight. We'll see.  Me and my OCD not allowing me to just skip ahead.
