Book Description

June 1 2004
No one sets fire to the page like Susan Sizemore! In her sensual new vampire romance, an unsuspecting mortal is embraced in darkness and passion....
He appears out of the dark desert night -- a huge, dangerous stranger who sparks desire and fear in her like she's never known. Josephine Elliot knows only that her captor's name is Marcus Cage, and that he's on the run. But who is chasing him, and why? Is Marcus protecting her by taking her hostage...or is he planning to use her to buy his own freedom? And why, above all, is she so inexorably drawn to him, body and soul?
Marcus is overwhelmed by his thirst for Josephine and instantly recognizes her as his soul mate. Desperate to evade enemies intent on destroying him and his kind, Marcus has no choice but to take Jo on the run. But when she unwittingly betrays him to his enemies, both are thrust into mortal danger. Can their newfound love survive her deceit and spare them a dark fate? Or will their insatiable desire burn for eternity?

3.0 out of 5 stars Should have been a better book July 1 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read other books by the same author, I found I was more than a little disappointed in this one, especially as part of an ongoing series.
The book itself is fairly short for the genre at 325 rather largely-typed softcover pages. As necessity, the character development, especially of Marc the hero, is stunted. If you haven't read the first in the series, you probably spent at least a couple dozen pages scratching your head and wondering what the heck a "Prime" was. There's a miniscule explanation, which doesn't at all do justice to what was a major plotline in book 1 and looks to be in book 3.
The heroine is typical: sexy, spunky, a little extraordinary, willing to accept a lot of strange behavior from a guy who looks good in a towel. What we know of the hero is also standard fare: sexy manly man with lots of secrets. That's about as deep as it gets, with barely a glance at his all-important family and clan lines. I'm not really sure why Sizemore chose to focus so much on the familial demands in the vamp hierarchy in book 1, only to nearly completely drop it in book 2.
The bad guy is interesting in a sort of mad-scientist cliched way and Sizemore keeps one theme constant that I appreciate: that the vamp isn't necessarily all-powerful, able to leap buildings in a single bound while never getting tired. Other than that, this book could easily have just appeared as one of the Harlequin books of the month. There's not much in here that is deserving of either the romance or the horror aisle, just enough of both to make it readable until the new Laurell Hamilton book is out.
I would only recommend this for die-hard Sizemore or vamp romance fans. It's not particularly well-written and the story won't stay with you for much more than an hour or two past finishing it, but it's okay for a painless, quickie beach read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one for sure, but ignore the cover art! June 26 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I LOVED the first book, and read the sneak preview in the back of it for this one. The publisher should be spanked; they not only changed the title between publication of the sneak chapters and actual distribution of the book (Makes it hard to pre-order a book when you have a bogus title!) but once they put it out, they used cover art with NO relationship to the actual main charactors (He has curly short dark hair and a largish nose, she has short blonde hair; cover shows him with longish straight hair and her with long dark hair. Duh)
The first book concentrated on one faction of Vampire society, the Clans; this book features a representative of the Families. Each group sees the other through an ethnocentric point of view, which is refreshingly humanlike - - - I can't wait to see what she does with a member of the Tribes as a main charactor, or better yet, what the first-person view of a female vampire would be, considering their somewhat restricted biology. What I didn't like was the introduction of a paramilitary "DPI" like evil organization intent on developing immortality by experimenting on Vampires in a labratory. Hmm... read this elsewhere. She loves alpha males, fast pace, intricate personal relationships, and invests her writing with good background detail.
This was overall an engaging read, and you should read both this and "I BURN FOR YOU", if you haven't already.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Fast-Paced June 12 2004
By p-dubya
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my first Susan Sizemore book. Warning: Spoilers.
Marcus is the typical alpha male romantic vampire hero. He's just escaped from a secret lab where he was the subject of tortuous experimentation at the hands of a medical team searching for the key to immortality. Josephine is a pilot with empathic abilities recovering from a crash that killed four of her passengers. She's taken hostage by Marcus as he makes his escape. The balance of the book details their relationship as it morphs from kidnapper/hostage to soul mates with lots of action along the way.
I was satisfied with character development and liked the dynamic their telepathic abilities enabled. I never got bored with the pace. But I was disappointed that Jo was so easily deceived into betraying Marcus and I think the story could have been strengthened by making this decision seem the ONLY thing Jo could do. I also think the story could have been strengthened by adding more bonding time between Marcus & Jo to make the pain of their separation seem more appropriate.
Nice weekend read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better June 9 2004
By Wm19
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The hero Marcus is a vampire, captured and tortured. He escapes and finds Josephine. Because he's been tortured, he spends the first three quarters of the book in a constant state of blood hunger/thirst, not to mention lust, because Josephine's his mate.
Aside from the blood hunger and lust for his mate, and Josephine's empathy, the entire story was remarkedly like any para-military/action romance. There was very little interaction with other people, or exploration of vampiric culture. In the prequel, I Burn For You, there is an excursion into vampire society, and getting to know other vampires and the culture.
In this book, they run and hide, hardly speaking to anyone else, meet one other vampire at the end, and that's it. In the epilogue, it's mentioned that the heroine was brought home to meet the rest of the vampire family, but apparently that wasn't interesting to actually let the reader read what happened. It wasn't until hundreds of pages in that the reader learns anything about the complex vampire culture, so the first few hundreds of pages is just like an action romance.
Also, the font was so large, it was very annoying, not unlike Johanna Lindsey novels, making it seem that the story was "blown up" to fill the requisate number of pages.
So I think the story did read quickly, had action, but it could have been better, if there had been more interesting supporting characters, more relationships, more insight into the complex vampiric culture we saw in I Burn For You, and smaller font/smaller spacing for the page typset.

Yes there are very strong resemblences to Christine Feehan, but only in the best way and not at all derivitive. Sizemore is a very good writer who's in top form with this series. Read more
