NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Christine Feehan has received numerous honours including being a nominee for the Romance Writers of America RITA and receiving a Career Achievement Award from ROMANTIC TIMES.
Bestseller Feehan's steamy and dreamy 18th Carpathian novel (after 2006's Dark Celebration) explores the erotic allure of ancient shape-shifters, Brazilian rain forests and vampires. Manuel "Manolito" De La Cruz, one of those dark, irresistible Carpathian hunks who can only thrive with one woman by his side, has found his life mate in MaryAnn Delaney, a Seattle counselor for battered women who flies to his Brazilian family compound to help a pregnant rape victim. It takes a while for MaryAnn to accept Manolito's love, as Feehan, with her usual expertise, draws out the foreplay between the two. Feverish jungle encounters with Jaguar-men and MaryAnn's shocking discovery of her inner werewolf add spice, while growing tensions in the Carpathian world create other problems. Feehan's combo platter of danger, fantasy and wild, uninhibited romance continues to sizzle. (Aug.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Fighting for his life in a South American jungle and struggling against the vampires who would claim him, Carpathian Manolito De La Cruz knows one thing: he has a life mate and only she can save him. Empathetic counselor MaryAnn Delaney is that woman, but even when she realizes they are linked, and she touches Manolito's mind, she's not about to tie herself to someone that difficult and dangerous. But Manolito has other ideas, and when MaryAnn is drawn to him in South America, he is determined to possess her completely. This dark, chilling read continues Feehan's Carpathian series about the De La Cruz brothers. Fans will be delighted.
