After witch Holly Carver defeats a sentient house that almost took the life of her boyfriend her abilities call her to the attention of the queen of vampires. Holly’s abilities may be the only thing keeping demons confined in hell and now both demons and vampires want her. Holly’s boyfriend's brush with death causes some of the problems they have to be thrust into the light, and her new found freedom leaves her open to pursue her attraction to her vampire partner, Alessandro Caravelli. Holly’s attraction to Alessandro might not be good for her health but it is undeniable. When her life is threatened Alessandro will stop at nothing to protect her. Alessandro's fealty is to his queen and his new found feelings for Holly are getting in the way of his loyalty. Alessandro will do what he must to protect his love from the queen’s plans, demons, and himself even if it costs him his chance at happiness.

Ravenous is a fun read that will have readers cheering for the character's happily ever after. Holly’s weariness of Alessandro’s motives and affections is understandable and great to read about as she gives into her feelings regardless of the potential danger. Alessandro’s unwillingness to pursue his attraction to Holly is interesting to see unfold because no matter how hard he fights, his attraction to Holly is too strong to ignore. Sharon Ashwood created an entertaining read great for a lazy afternoon and characters that are interesting to read and see how they interact with one another. Holly and Alessandro’s relationship is one that readers will enjoy watching develop.
