A Vampire In Chains
Held captive in a basement prison, wrapped in silver chains, the vampire Gideon is too weak to fight the monster who enslaves him. For years, she's tapped his precious blood like a fountain of youth--sustaining him with human females she captures for his pleasure. But with the latest victim she brings him, he senses something intriguingly different. Something dangerous, yet oh so tempting.
Kay Alissano is no ordinary woman. Every full moon, she must answer the call of the wild--unleashing the wolf within. As daughter of the Shadow Pack's Alpha, Kay is extremely powerful--and when she's offered up to Gideon, she doesn't surrender easily. In wolf form, she might be able to unchain Gideon's heart and set them both free--if only he can resist the urge to consume her, body and soul, before the next full moon. . .
"Ashley is a master storyteller." --Romantic Times
"A classic vampire tale of sensual, spine-tingling suspense." --Christine Feehan on Desire After Dark
"A master of her craft." --Maggie Shayne
A vampire and werewolf join forces in this entertaining, briskly paced supernatural romance. Centuries-old vampire Gideon Marquet has been imprisoned by Verah, a witch who uses his blood to restore her youth and forces him to kill innocent victims to keep himself alive He's surprised when his latest "food" turns out to be the werewolf Kiya "Kay" Alissano, daughter of her pack's leader. Mutual assistance in an escape pact turns quickly to attraction, despite Kay's intended betrothal to the unpleasant Victor Rinaldi, son of a rival pack leader. Soon Kay and Gideon are on the run from Verah and the members of both werewolf packs. Ashley (His Dark Embrace) offsets the somewhat cardboard villains with an appealing young heroine whose werewolf traits permit a balanced relationship with the powerful vampire. Gideon's untraditional teleporting ability seems contrived primarily for plot convenience, and the casual treatment of rape is disturbing, but the action and romance keep pages turning. (Sept.)
