Santino the Eternal has never craved the forbidden – until now. As a blood-thirsty serial killer hunts the glitzy streets of Las Vegas, Santino collides with a young college student – can she make it out alive?
Clara Denton’s life is flung into chaos when she discovers a drained corpse in a posh hotel room on the strip. And as if her life wasn’t already spiraling out of control, her reclusive boss has taken a disconcerting interest in her. Unable to resist the dark pull, she is drawn further and further into the murky world of the undead – as well as just dead, too. When the handsome Matthew Hunter arrives with his sights set on Clara, she is thrown into one final eternal struggle of good versus evil.
Can love truly be eternal?
Theresa M’s Review:
First, let me say I’m not a typical paranormal romance fan. Before this book, I’ve only read two other PNR series. Last year for my birthday on a plane to California, I was reading Taken By Two, my first book of Sam’s, and I immediately fell in love with her writing. So, it’s fitting that as another birthday rolls around, I have a new book of hers to read.
Santino isn’t your typical vampire—I’m sorry, eternal. That’s what he and his family call themselves. He’s old school, a well-read, well heeled, fascinating owner of an upscale hotel in Las Vegas. He’s the head of his large family, and there’s trouble in their midst. Some murders are taking place in Vegas, and they’re getting a little too close to home for Santino’s liking.
Clara, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, she’s working her way through college, and determined to have a better life for herself than what her parents gave her. She works part time as a maid in Santino’s hotel. One day, their paths cross, and something about Clara catches Santino’s attention. Although his intentions are initially one thing, he and Clara get close pretty quickly, and Santino must reassess his plans for Clara. Clara finds Santino a bit scary, but she can’t seem to pull herself away from him. Their chemistry is off the charts, and Sam brings the heat with these two.
This was Sam’s first try at paranormal, and I think she nailed it beautifully. There was a great story here, and there wasn’t a heavy focus on the paranormal, and I really enjoyed it. There were some great characters in this story, and I hope some of them get their own story. There were several surprising twists and sub plots that flowed nicely, and didn’t ruin or take away from the main story.
Santino the Eternal is the first book in The Eternals series. I can’t wait for the next one.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book, and I give it five stars!
About Sam J.D. Hunt
Sam J.D. Hunt resides in Las Vegas with her husband, the inspiration for the young Thomas Hunt character, as well as her two children. Her debut trilogy, The Thomas Hunt Series, put a fun and unique spin on the popular BDSM genre. She followed up with the highly successful DEEP: A Captive Tale–a dark BDSM erotic captor/captive story about a pirate and his lady that spans time and space. Her fourth novel, the full-length standalone The Hunt for Eros is an erotic art adventure that combines spicy romance with a cultural adventure based on true life events. It has been described as being like The Da Vinci Code, but with lots of heat added.
Hunt’s next release was co-written with her husband. Dagger: American Fighter Pilot is a steamy contemporary romance, which follows a squadron of fighter pilots as part of the American Fighter Pilot read-in-any-order series. Following the release of Dagger, Hunt released the much-anticipated MMF/Bi/Ménage erotic adventure, Taken by Two. Next, Hunt plans to release DEEPER: Capture of the Virgin Bride as a follow-up to DEEP. When not writing, Hunt enjoys travel, community involvement, spending time with friends and family, and hiking. She spends her days writing and trying to answer the age-old question: is it too late for coffee or too early for wine?
