Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Dangerously close to becoming a vampire, Manolito De La Cruz has been called back to his Carpathian homeland - and has unexpectedly caught the scent of his destined lifemate, MaryAnn Delaney.

MaryAnn is human and well aware of the aggressive instincts of Carpathian males. A counsellor for battered women, MaryAnn has no room in her life for someone like Manolito. But when she goes to South America to offer guidance to a young woman, she has no idea of the trap awaiting her. For she's been lured there by Manolito, who has seductive plans for the irresistible human female.

Once there, she'll be his. Once his, she'll never be released. She is his dark possession.

Library Journal Review

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. Feehan (Safe Harbor) writes in a variety of paranormal subgenres from her home in Lake County, CA. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Publishers Weekly Review

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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Booklist Review

Manolito de la Cruz wakes to a living nightmare. Voices condemn him, he is racked with an unnatural hunger, and somehow he has bonded with a life mate whose name he doesn't even know. MaryAnn wants nothing to do with the Carpathian way of life, but her conscience won't let her leave Manolito's spirit lost in limbo. As the two look for a way to save him from his enemies in the shadow world, they uncover threats not just to Manolito, but to his entire race. The eighteenth installment in Feehan's popular series is somewhat disjointed and sometimes perplexing, but longtime fans of the Dark novels should enjoy the trademark sexy alpha hero and the story's evolution.--Davis, Nina C.
