The Covenant by Evangeline Anderson
My rating: 4.25 of 5 stars
Kaitlyn Richards, a powerful witch, reluctantly agrees to a limited blood bond with Holden Sumner, a vampire, so that together they can banish a cunning demon who enjoys slaughtering woman and feeds on their fear and desperation. Sumner has been tracking the demon for three-hundred years and is focused on revenge for the death of his beloved wife. When he and Kaitlyn first meet there is a spark of awareness between them that Sumner never expected, and he goes to extraordinary measures to help Kaitlyn recognize her own beauty and desirability. Kaitlyn is convinced the feelings she has developed for Sumner will dissipate once their task is accomplished.
This sensational story captured and held my attention throughout. The relationship between Kaitlyn and Sumner is never smooth, and I enjoyed the sexual tension they generate even as Kaitlyn fights valiantly against the growing attraction. The monster is also particularly creepy and well-drawn. Kaitlyn is a strong female protagonist who has some hang-ups and flaws that endeared her to me all the more. I would love to see this couple in another adventure and hope there will be a sequel.
