Anyone that has read Christine Feehan’s other work would no doubt be automatically drawn to Gregori, the dark healer featured in Dark Prince and Dark Desire.

But for those who haven’t read any of the above mentioned titles, we’ll take the poor, uneducated soul and give them a run down of one of the best books that Christine Feehan will ever write!

Gregori is the healer of the Carpathians and when a pregnant Raven (heroine of Dark Prince) gets hurt in the book Dark Desire Gregori heals the unborn child and marks it as his lifemate, the one who would bring him back from the edge of darkness when she was old enough.

Now the baby is Savannah Dubrinsky, a grown woman with a mind of her own. She’s still young and a successful magician and enjoys her independence. The last thing she wants is to be bound to a Carpathian male. Because once a woman is bound to a Carpathian male, she can not live without him-literally.

But Gregori can’t wait any longer. He has been on the edge of darkness for over a thousand years, and only Savannah can save him. She already fled from him once 5 years ago. (To America in Dark Gold.) So, he saves her from a dark vampire and takes her to a secluded hideaway to begin the binding ritual, even if she is against it.

But as time passes, Savannah realizes that Gregori is carrying a huge amount of guilt and that he thinks she’ll never love him because of his dark past. Savannah, being the determined heroine that she is, decides to prove him wrong.

All in all, this is a perfect book for the paranormal reader and one that those who don’t normally enjoy the paranormal would get a charge out of. Savannah is a strong character with her own thoughts and feelings instead of being the seduced zombie many vampire romance heroines become.

Gregori is a wonderful alpha-male that leaves you begging for more after you finish the last page. His strong sense of justice and morals make him memorable while his sexy demeanor makes him desirable.
