Deadly Is The Chase
Book Review by Lisa Annesley

Deadly Is The Kiss is a deadly chase across Europe with sizzling sexual tension between the hero and heroine. It's a worthy spin-off of the Primal Instinct series.

Ashe Granger is a F├Ârmyndare, a member of an elite, highly skilled group of vampire soldiers whose job is the protection of Deschanel vampires. He is also well-known to be a ladies' man. A many, many ladies man. While on a special operation with a team written about in the Primal Instinct series, he meets Juliana Sabin. Juliana and her family are in exile in the Wasteland, a prison land that is hidden and bound by magic.

Unknown to Juliana, she starts Ashe's Burning. The Burning is a change that Deschanel vampires go through when they meet their destined mate. The male literally burns for his mate, and no other woman will do. Ashe refuses to give in to the Burning, and tries to break it. Yet he remains obsessed with Juliana, and with finding out why her family was exiled. He is unsuccessful on both counts.

Thanks to an unknown benefactor, Juliana escapes from the Wasteland and searches for Ashe. She needs his help to clear her family's name. But she has secrets to keep and a price on her head. And Ashe has a price for his help--relief from the Burning.
Ashe is big, strong, capable, dominant, protective, tender when necessary, and sexy--everything you want in a hero. Yes, he can be an a$$hole at times. Almost unforgivably so. The dark moments are very dark, but they just make the book that much richer emotionally. I love a good cry.

Juliana is a sympathetic, likable heroine. At times she does some stupid things, but she is also brave when it really counts.

The pace is page-turning. I read into the wee-hours of the morning as Ashe and Juliana literally ran for their lives. With scorching interludes to relieve the Burning, of course!

Rhyannon Byrd says that Deadly Is The Kiss is the first book in her Primal Instinct World series. Characters from the Primal Instinct series will be in the spin-off series, but each book will be a standalone title. They won't even have to be read in order. She says that she's not sure if Gideon Granger's book is next, or if it will be Damon's from Rush of Pleasure. She's also planning to write a book about Knox, from Deadly Is The Kiss.

Of all the Primal Instinct books, and now the spin-off, Deadly Is The Kiss gets my highest rating.

Are you going to read Deadly Is The Kiss to your TBR pile?

Happy Reading!
