Title: Orleander, Son of Drakkar (Drakkar Coven #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Leigh Jarrett (Steambath Press)
Publication Date & Length: February 1, 2016 — 200 pages
The unrelenting seduction of Oleander’s cool, flawless skin—and deep, captivating eyes. The concern in his voice—the touch of his hand. The exhilaration and pride elicited by the sight of Oleander waiting for him after the visit with his family had left him feeling disappointed and unfulfilled.
Unfulfilled …pointless, insignificant—until Oleander.
Amidst the chaos of his sexual reckoning, Timothy is compelled to uphold an intimate pact struck between himself and Oleander, and chooses to follow him north to Drakkar Castle—the threat of war upon them. Grimmr Coven is advancing deep into Drakkar Coven territory, and only Oleander may know the reason why. He had lived amongst the coven Grimmr for many decades with his human lover, Torkel and fears that a far greater threat is coming, forcing Grimmr Coven south into Drakkar Coven territory.
Left behind while Oleander goes in search of answers, Timothy’s inner turmoil becomes unbearable. His only company enroute to Drakkar Castle, Alexis, a vivacious, blue-eyed seductress with a secret, intent on stealing him away for reasons that would launch the already fractured family of Drakkar at each other’s throats.
Wow!! The vampires in this book are not ones to be messed with at all!
Now go in to this book not expecting your typical romance because you will not get that at all in this book..
This book was a no holds barred Vampire book that I would say had very little romance but a lot of other things where going on in this book from action too the world this author built in this book “which I loved” that had me on the edge of my seat not wanting to put this book down at all. I will be the first to admit I am a huge paranormal/ vampire fan and the way this author wrote this story and characters was amazing and I really loved it!
I would recommend this book!
