Vampire Sidonie Wolf and werewolf Joe Bleythin fall in love. Both know their respective species outlaws a relationship between them; the penalty is death. Fearing for her Joe, Sid sacrifices her heart by modifying his memories of her and their love. Soon afterward, Joe shuts down their private investigative partnership and breaks up with her. Joe joins vampire Tobias Strahan's Dark Angels, a group dedicated to protecting paranormal species.

Meanwhile Sid's father, Antony has cherished from the shadows for six decades the human Rose; he loves her but is forbidden to do anything about his feelings by his species for the last 60 years. When someone kidnaps his Rose, Tony pleads with his daughter to save her life. She is teamed up with Dark Angel Joe to find and rescue Rose. Still angry with her for what she did to him, Joe also realizes she could not erase his love for her or conceal her love for him.

The latest Primal (see HEAT and DESIRES) urban romantic suspense fantasy is a strong tale of star crossed lovers. Sid thought she was doing what was best for Joe while he felt she betrayed their trust. Their acrimonious beginning makes vampires and werewolves seem genuine in Susan Sizemore¿s Primal realm. Fans will enjoy this refreshing second chance at love thriller,; that is if they survive the enemy and their two species.

A few pages into this I was just about convinced it was a part of a series because the characters had so many confusing conversations concerning previous events, relationships and customs that weren't properly explained. However, there isn't much indicating that's the case which leads me to believe that this may just have been badly written. The explanations finally came but far later than they should have, throwing off pacing and plot.

The fires that occur in the beginning of the story and the reasons for the Dark Angels being there is glossed over and never properly detailed. The actions and reasoning of the villains is also never fully explained. The events of the fire lead to Joe and Sid meeting again but the reason for continuing to be in each other's presence is so highly contrived. Joe is assigned to help Sid remember a past event (also never explained) simply by hanging around her, the fact that he never truly accomplishes this is ignored, quite possibly because it never made much sense in the first place.

In the middle, the story detours into the romance of two other characters. While they did provide the answers to some of the mysteries I couldn't help but wonder if I was still reading the same book. A whole new plot emerges in the middle and becomes the driving force, and Sid and Joe become fairly secondary. Worse yet, this subplot of a WWII romantic rescue does not fit into the rest of the plot at all. It felt like a poor attempt to fit two different stories together.

Great story with lots of interesting characters. This book was a little more confusing than the last as it kept going back and forth between the past and present. I found it a bit disconcerting and harder to follow. I definitely enjoy the group of characters in this series, and would like to read more about them.

This book was honestly far better than I was expecting. I picked it up expecting a romance novel with supernatural elements, and instead found a book about supernatural stuff with romance. Pleasant surprise. I was having trouble picturing how there could have been 6 other books about these characters first, but in looking at some of the other reviews, I see that these weren't main characters through the others, which explains it. Still not sure I am interested in reading any of the others, but I didn't hate it, and I wouldn't avoid them if they popped up.

Sidone Wolf wanted to be with Joe Bleythin, however the powers that be don't want that. She had to erase his memory of them and it's hard to deal with, what's harder is when they have to work together. She remembers but all he remembers is attraction, and he doesn't understand why she's starting to move away from him. I haven't read a lot of this series, but it's not a bad world creation and the characters are interesting.
