Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and…complete surrender.
While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, testing his sanity and challenging his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?
(Blurb from Goodreads)
It took me a while to get into this book, and to be honest, I almost gave up at about 25% according to my Kindle. (I wish it would give me page numbers!) But then something happened, and Caressed by the Edge of Darkness got soooooo good! And addicting! I couldn’t put it down.
I know some people are over vampires and paranormal romance, but I still love them.
Some things in the book did bother me a bit, such as Jordan’s instant trust (and lust) for Gabriel, especially since she was a Hunter. And the beginning, as I said before, dragged for me. I thought I really wasn’t going to enjoy the book because of Jordan’s instant infatuation, but I’m so happy that I kept reading because the scenes between Jordan and Gabriel were fantastic.
The scenes between Jordan and Gabriel were five-star, but the in between scenes just didn’t do it for me and I found myself skimming ahead.
Overall though, I really did enjoy the book.
