Beauty and the beast with bite...
When Ella's father is missing, she finds him held captive by a dangerous and devastatingly handsome a man, who gives her one choice: Her father may go free, but she must stay with him--for good.
There is more to Lucian than what Ella initially sees. He isn't just a crazed kidnapper wrapped into irresistible eye candy. Heading a group of shape shifters who live as humans by day and hideous monsters by night, Lucian is desperate to uncover why his kind hasn't been reproduced in centuries. Determined to solve this mystery, Lucian sees Ella as an answer. Together, they begin to discover the truth--a truth that just might be what Lucian's been afraid of all along.
But their days together are numbered. Lucian's enemies will stop at nothing to destroy him--and anything he loves. Lucian and Ella refuse to give up that easily. Will beauty and love prevail, taming the beast once and for all?
What a fascinating story for sure. This book emediately caught my attention, usually I go after supernatural shifter/vampire books but this one wasnt entirely different but definitely not the same by any means.
Ella what a strong beautiful woman, even at the begining when she is arguing with the sherriff about finding her father she is strong and takes no crap even though she was a beauty pagaent girl. Which is all anyone ever sees her as much to her dismay. She becomes stronger and more resilent as the story continues on, You will be amazed by her transformation. Through one meeting she is afterwards stuck forever in a world she never wanted to be in.
Lucian the man who kidnapped her father is an interesting sort of fellow. By all accounts he should avoid her and keep her father to do what he wants and needs of him. But he doesnt listen of course he goes out to introduce himself and in doing so Ella gets pulled into his world. He has long hair gorgous blue eyes an adonis body and hes tall as hell making him even more gorgous the second he speaks.
The love story that results in them meeting is amazing and debilitating for Ella. He scares her but she is also lusting after this sex god of a man that keeps her captive.
