New England is ideal for vampire Adam Dubois. His cozy home in the Great North Woods reminds him of a happier time when werewolves and witches were stuff of legends, and he was a simple lumberjack.
Hiding from past failures has worked for over eighty years, but a life debt owed to the Red Rock alpha has forced him to leave his retreat--and come face to face with a woman who challenges and tempts him on every level.
Hiding secrets is a lonely business, and Cindy Shepherd is lonely with a capital L. Red Rock isn't exactly crawling with available men, but her interest in the mystery-shrouded new vampire in town seems mutual. After all, it's only sex--there's no danger he'll dig deep enough to unleash the demons of her past.
Casual flirtation turns deadly serious when Adam discovers that the vampire plaguing Red Rock is using his mistakes as a road map. When it comes to his life, he knows Cindy has his back. But in order to secure the future, they both must trust each other with more--even if it means sacrificing themselves to save everything they hold dear.
When I first popped open Sanctuary Unbound the first few pages had me in tears. Gavin.. dying? No way in hell.
So I held off, waiting for a time when I felt my heart could handle the possibilities.
As I progressed through this story I felt more and more... um... disappointed. Aside from Gavin and Keith who have each had me the palm of their paws from the beginning, I really didn't bond at all with this book.
The love story was far from believable for me. It was more a camaraderie than an actual destined, twist of fate and emotions as Adam and Cindy 'fell' for each other. Mayhaps it be because Adam is a really crappy vamp or Cindy, who ticked me off when she far too easily seduced Dylan into her bed all those many lifetimes ago, just never made it to my good side.
Sadly, this one didn't do the others justice.
But thankfully, on a good note, Gavin did make it to another birthday. Yays.
