Ryder Duncan keeps his secrets. With a twisted scientist starving him in a 10 X 12 cell, it's not easy to conceal the abilities that set him apart from other vampires, or his plans for escape. But survival - and revenge - are worth waiting for. Until the so-called doctor tempts his appetites with something special: a woman, with a soft Southern accent and a scent like flowers. Sabine.
Sabine Acadia didn't volunteer to be dinner. She was kidnapped and tossed into the cage of a monster. A monster with fierce green eyes, a body that speaks of ruthless power--but a touch gentle as a caress. Ryder knows things about her, secrets Sabine needs to learn fast. Because while they might soon escape this prison, she's fighting an urge to set all her desires free...

Too much of a blood-fest, like a B-grade movie with tons of yelling, hysterics, crazed movements and mutual drinking of blood that got me rolling my eyes after a while. Lots of action, as unbelievable as it maybe, but even that was repetitive, like a second read through of the first book and not too much character depth it seems.

Thoroughly disappointing when I realised I couldn’t wait to finish it all by skimming through.
