Running from an abusive husband, Natalya encounters more than she can handle…especially when she becomes a vampire’s target.

As a Watcher of the King’s Guard, Vahe Patten hunts rogue vampires, ones who break their vampire laws. When dead bodies are left for the human authorities to find, their secret is out, and Vahe takes on the mission by seeking the next victim before the killer does—only to find her blood tasted sweeter than any he’s ever had. 

Natalya Woods just wants to avoid her abusive husband and live a normal life, but the small town of Haven has been anything but safe. When she’s attacked in the streets, literally, by the man of her dreams, she finds herself kidnapped and putting her weapon skills to use—surprisingly not on her husband. Attraction and desire throws Natalya and Vahe in a bind as they work together to fight the killer, but will Natalya overcome her distrust of men and allow herself to take the risk to love?

What an exhilarating ride. Page after page you are drawn into the world of the hunter and the hunted. Hold on tight and don’t let go!!

Natalya has been living in fear since she escaped the clutches of her abusive husband. Her house is wired for security and she is amply supplied with guns and other weapons. Now all she just needs to do is protect her heart and soul.

Strong, powerful and feared Vahe is a force to be reckoned with. He is a Watcher, an enforcer of vampire laws. He eliminates any paranormal beings that are a threat to their secret society. Never been one to protect a human, he is unexplainably drawn to Natalya. She is a wounded woman in need of a gentle touch, but Vahe has no concept of the word gentle.

Whew! Right from the beginning the suspense kicks in. Something is in the air, but Natalya just can’t decipher it. She is already a woman on edge, but when she feels someone is watching her, she needs to follow her instincts. This woman does have a problem and it isn’t her deranged husband. She is about to be forced into the unknown world of vampires.

There were times that I loved and hated Vahe. He was an arrogant man, but I guess if you have been alive for centuries and you are a Watcher, you could afford to have an attitude. I still wanted to smack him right upside the head, just like Natalya did. While she is a scared scarred woman, she held her own with this brute and I applauded her. They had a combustible relationship that was a pleasure to read. She kept him on his toes and you could just see him losing his hard veneer.

Fear of Darkness is not a deep fulfilling emotional story, but it does grab you and doesn’t let go. It is a great short read if you want some hot vampire hero/villains, a spunky woman and non-stop action. Got an hour or so, pick up this book! It is a quick fix in your time of need.
