[Review] - Vampire Betrayed by Rachel Carrington
Author: Rachel Carrington
Series: Vampires Destined
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: June 29, 2012
I received this book for review from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Damned to be a creature of the night. Disillusioned by the promise of love which can never be his. Betrayed by his own and the woman he loves.
Joaquin never intended to fall in love, especially not with a mortal. A human could never understand his kind, the torture of his daily existence, but his heart doesn’t follow his head. And he finds love in the arms of a woman who knows nothing about his true existence.
After just three short months, Ariana believes she’s has found the man she would risk everything for. Then she learns the truth. A dark, twisted truth that becomes the catalyst for a life-changing decision when she believes a sorceress’s lies
Once together, Joaquin and Ariana now find themselves on the opposite ends of the battlefield. Vampire versus hunter. Each destined to kill the other. Neither able to forget the magical nights, the feel of skin on skin, or the sounds of whispers in the dark.
In a world of betrayal and lies, love is crushed, but Joaquin isn’t ready to give up. And when he discovers the true nature of Ariana’s change, he has to save her before she realizes what she has become
Thoughts: Joaquin is a vampire and he has fallen in love with a mortal named Ariana. They have a fabulous three months together before she learns about his true nature. Instead of following what she feels, she believes someones lies. Lovers become enemies. Destiny and treachery are a foot.
This book is the third installment in the Vampires Destined series. I haven't read the previous books in the series, but this one turned out to be an intriguing read. It's safe to say it can be read as a stand alone novel. I loved that it took place in South Carolina. I wasn't a big fan of the heroine, Ariana. While the story turned out great, I think Ariana should have listened to her heart a bit more. This was my first time read Rachel Carrington, her written definitely peaked my interest, I look forward to read more of her books. Vampire Betrayed was a good read. Filled with delicious romance and exciting action.
Score: 3 Stars
