Bestseller Feehan’s steamy and dreamy 18th Carpathian novel (after 2006’s Dark Celebration ) explores the erotic allure of ancient shape-shifters, Brazilian rain forests and vampires. Manuel “Manolito” De La Cruz, one of those dark, irresistible Carpathian hunks who can only thrive with one woman by his side, has found his life mate in MaryAnn Delaney, a Seattle counselor for battered women who flies to his Brazilian family compound to help a pregnant rape victim. It takes a while for MaryAnn to accept Manolito’s love, as Feehan, with her usual expertise, draws out the foreplay between the two. Feverish jungle encounters with Jaguar-men and MaryAnn’s shocking discovery of her inner werewolf add spice, while growing tensions in the Carpathian world create other problems. Feehan’s combo platter of danger, fantasy and wild, uninhibited romance continues to sizzle. (Aug.)
