Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Raven Whitney is a psychic who has used her gift to help the police track down a serial killer. Now she is determined to escape the glare of recent publicity for the peace and quiet of the Carpathian Mountains. Despite her own emotional fatigue, Raven finds herself connecting psychically to another wounded individual somewhere close by. Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky is the leader of his people but, as his ancient Carpathian race grows ever closer to extinction, he is close to giving in to the heavy weight of loneliness and despair. Then a female voice enters his mind and tries to console him. Intrigued, Mikhail becomes obsessed with finding this unusual human female. From the moment their minds touch, Raven and Mikhail form a connection. But there are those who incorrectly view all Carpathians as vampires, and are determined to give their extinction a helping hand.

They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light... Prince of the Night... He came to her in the night, a predator-strength and power chiseled his features. The seduction was deep and elemental; he affected her soul. His need. His darkness. His terrible haunting loneliness. Her senses aroused, she craved the dangerous force of his body. Burned for him.

Publishers Weekly Review

First published in 1999, launching the author's number one bestselling Dark series about the Carpathians, a dying race of vampires, this special hardcover edition offers over 100 pages of new material. Now the Carpathians find new hope when their leader discovers that his life mate is a telepathic American woman visiting their remote mountain region. The paranormal romance's appeal stands the test of time, with its sensual and absorbing story of an independent beauty taming a terrifying but smitten beast, while his people face annihilation from vampire hunters, hidden enemies, and their own failure to procreate. At nearly 500 pages, however, the pacing often lags, with long scenes between hero and heroine that replay the same issues in repetitive detail. Still, fans will likely enjoy seeing the love story plumbed in every nuance, and there's enough power to draw new enthusiasts. Toward the end, Feehan creates a complex and compelling future hero in a secondary vampire leader, and her climax picks up much-needed steam. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
