If you've been waiting to sink your fangs into a new Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter novel, your wait is over. The latest book in Laurell K. Hamilton's steamy best-selling series features as much supernatural intrigue (and as many lusty couplings) as ever, with a little something added….
Anita Blake, flustered? Nah. Not someone who raises zombies and slays vampires for a living. Not someone who goes up against soulless killers and supernatural monsters on a daily basis. But something's got Anita worried, just as she should be paying attention to the dangerous levels her ardeur is reaching. The ardeur, or sexual power that flows like electricity between her, Master Vampire Jean-Claude and Richard, the volatile werewolf who loves her with a passion, may be evolving into something altogether new. It seems to be choosing new lovers for Anita, acting with a will of its own, or, as Jean-Claude says, hunting powerful prey. The unexpected effect of this is that Jean-Claude's own power has grown to new heights—and Richard, never predictable, is changing too.
What's consuming Anita's thoughts these days is a perfectly ordinary dread she shares with sexually active single women down the ages: she may be pregnant. And if she is, whether the father is a vampire, a werewolf or another shapeshifter entirely, she knows perfectly well that being a Federally-licensed monster killer is no way to raise a baby…. Warning: Explicit sex and language. (Approx. 720 pp.) 2006.
