Death cocktail is what the vampires call a witch's blood. It's poisonous—a drop will destroy a vampire within minutes. Nikolaus Drake is the rare vampire who has survived his first taste. Now he's on the hunt for the witch who almost brought him to his demise— Ravin Crosse.

A witch who spends her nights hunting vampire tribes, Ravin has three obligations to fulfill to set her soul free. One of those obligations—crafting a love spell— twists her world upside down when Nikolaus draws the spell from her veins. Natural enemies rarely make the best bedfellows—but is it possible their intentions are really, truly the same? Can Nikolaus's tribal loyalty survive if he surrenders to desires far darker than his own?

This is the second Bewitching the Dark book. I really enjoyed the first one, and since we met Ravin, the heroine in that tale, I was intrigued. Couldn't wait to see what she got up to in this book.... and well, it didn't disappoint! What a cool read. I really wanted to get through this one very quickly, but other things kept getting in the way. :/

Anyway, by Friday afternoon, I decided that I was going to get to the end no matter what. And boy am I glad I did.

Both Nikolaus and Ravin had great voices that really sucked me into the story. I also loved the concept of this story, two enemies drawn together by a love spell. It was a wonderful way to throw them in the deep end and then have to get them to rise above it. I was quite surprised at how it all came together. Of course, that's a great thing.

I really enjoy reading Michele's books, and I love how she tackles the world of the vampires.

This is one you just have to read if you're into vamps. ;) So many cool concepts here, and a rich world of the paranormal. Check it out!
