Lucien Korvina lived a peaceful life with his wife and daughter in 13th century Hungary, until the Sagitarry and the Manicore come to his town, laying waste to every human life they can. And torturing Lucien to the point of death. If not for Queen Sabylline transforming him into one of the Revenants, he would be dead. Now he is one of the most powerful Revenants (vampires) in existence, surpassed only by the Queen and King. Still haunted by the memories of his former life, Lucien controls all that is in his power.

Growing up in an orphanage, Khamsin knows the dangers that walk the world, and now she has been captured by one of the most dangerous ones of all; vampires intent on using her for her blood and her body. It isnít until she is culled from the stock that her true fate is known. She is to become a slave to the vampire master Lucien, not because of he actually wishes it, but because of her uncanny resemblance to Lucienís dead wife. Serving Lucien was not what she thought it would be, and loving him was the hardest thing she has ever had to try to stop.

Their paths are fraught with peril and deception. An enemy, known to Lucien, learns of the bond forming between the two and wants to use Khamsin to destroy Lucien once and for all. But the Queen of the Revenants has her own plans for her prince, one that could very well tear Lucien and Khamsin from each other.

Another stellar story in the Windworld series by Charlotte Boyett-Compo. I love vampire stories, and Lucienís Khamsin is a definite keeper. Filled with twists and turns, danger and deception, it will thrill and titillate readers from the first page to the last. A definite must buy for any lover of paranormal romantica.
