Juliette is a beautiful activist devoted to the liberation of animals from the foul and humid confines of a secret jungle lab. But what she has stumbled upon is an unexpected prisoner like none she has ever seen. Or touched. His name is Riordan De La Cruz, immortal Carpathian male, trapped and caged, his honor compromised, his desire for revenge only beginning. She will release him from his bonds. He will release her from her inhibitions. Both have a voracious appetite that needs to be sated.
Dark Hunger is the story of Juliette and Riordan, an ancient Carpathian hunter sent to South America to hunt the vampire. Juliette is a descendant of a dying race. Together they race to save her sister, taken by a fanatical group for their own reasons. This story is very steamy and filled with action.
Dark Hunger is the first in a five-book series within the Dark Books about the South American brothers.
