Tristan Navarre Invaris knows everything about honor and chivalry, loyalty and sacrifice, respect and principle. As the Vampire Assassin League’s Innovation Specialist, he keeps abreast of every advance, every gadget, and every facet of communication. But there’s one thing he knows nothing about: Women.
Rori knows she’s gifted in the dark arts. She’s always known – regardless of what anyone thinks. She’s special. Talented. Odd. Unpopular. She’s found at the fringe of any crowd because she likes it there. She doesn’t need anyone. Never has. Until one night…on a dark empty street…
From the moment he’s sent to recruit her, Tristan’s hooked. She’s his mate. It’s not open for negotiation or argument. And his presence makes Rori’s powers sharper, more visceral, much more potent. Rori doesn’t know why she fights this mating thing. Nobody else wants her - and Tristan is the most handsome, heart-stirring creature. But there’s that vampire part…
I LOVED Tristan! I just had to share that. Now, this is the fourth novella of the Vampire Assassin League series and it is a great installment. Tristan Navarre Invaris is a dark, gorgeous, rough and tumble vampire with a sweet side.
He is the right hand of the mysteriously secretive man in charge of the League. Poor, handsome Tristan really does not know the first thing about women, having been a Templar Knight, he took his vows of celibacy very seriously. That's right ladies, Tristan is a drop dead sexy, well hung, hunk who is a virgin! An 800 year old virgin who has found his mate.
Rori is a young woman who has had her share of heartache. She meets Tristan after visiting a coven with her roommates. When he sweeps her up and flies her to his castle, she thinks she is having one hell of an acid trip. Even though Rori accepts Tristan's vampire side easily, she is not so easily convinced she is his mate, which gets her into some trouble.
The two characters together are fun and enduring - all around sweet. I really enjoyed their chemistry and their dialogue. This is a fun series and all the books are quick reads. If you need a little vampire fix, pick these books up.
