Synopsis
        In the decade following the brutal murder of his wife and daughter, Ian has existed in a world built on grief and hatred. Just when Ian has finally begun to claw his way through the shadows of his past, a knife to the heart ends it all . . . or is it the beginning? After waking up in a strange home, Ian’s only companion is the woman who saved him. Undeniably drawn to her, Ian finds himself wondering if it really is possible to love again.
        Trapped in a world where she is little more than a pawn for the Fae, Kyleigh long ago accepted the reality of her existence. She is no one’s savior and no one’s guardian angel; she is death. That is until she breaks all the rules to save a vampire many believe beyond salvation. Ian sparks a passion she never believed possible and reawakens emotions she thought long buried.
        While secluded in a realm between life and death, Ian and Kyleigh are free to explore their feelings for each other. When enemies, past and present, join forces to destroy those Ian loves, they are forced to leave the safety of Kyleigh’s realm. Can their fragile bond survive when they are faced with the demons of Ian’s past?
Excerpt
       “Of course I had a choice,” Kyleigh argued. “I could have done the right thing. Instead, I selfishly used you to avoid a punishment I deserved. You have every right to be mad. In fact, you should be furious.”
       “The situation you were in could have ended very badly for you. If you hadn’t helped me, you wouldn’t have been in that position at all. How can I be mad at you for doing what you had to do to save yourself?” Ian asked. “Hell, I owe you that much. Being stuck here with you is a small price to pay.”
       That was another big reality check. Ian was with her because he had no choice in the matter and accepted it because he felt he owed her. Being in her presence was merely a way to repay a debt.“You can let go of my hand now,” she said.
        Ian sighed and looked like he was considering refusing, but he finally released her hand. “Sit down,” he said and pointed to one of her chairs.
        Kyleigh hesitated for a moment before taking a seat. Rather than sitting across the room, Ian grabbed a chair and moved it until they were sitting across from each other, so close their knees were almost touching.
       “I haven’t wanted any woman since Kate was killed,” he said, leaning forward to rest his elbows on his knees.
       Kyleigh nodded. “I understand. Calling you my mate doesn’t mean I expect you to act like my mate.”
        “Good,” he said, “because, honestly, I’m not sure I have it in me to be your mate. I’m broken in so many ways. Mitchell has helped me heal, but I’m not sure I have what it takes to love a woman again. That doesn’t change how much I want you, Kyleigh. Just thinking about being inside of you gets me hard. The reason we need to talk about this is that I need to know where this thing between us is headed. I need to know if you’re open to exploring the attraction between us with the understanding that I can’t really be your mate.” Ian hesitated and then looked down at his hands. “Please tell me I didn’t sound like as much of an asshole as I think I did. I’m trying really hard to be nice, but I’m not very good at it.”
        “You were just being honest,” she said, her voice shaking slightly from nerves and excitement. “I don’t have much experience in this area.”
        Ian leaned forward to take both of her hands in his. “I know, and that gets me more turned on. You’re so innocent, and it makes me feel possessive to think that you might be experiencing things for the first time with me.”

My Review
Seducing DeathSeducing Death by Cassandra Lawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the moon virus series. I really enjoyed the first two and was really looking forward to this. I wasn't disappointed.

This is Ian's story. We've met him before in the series. He's bitter and unable to move on from a tragedy. He wasn't the most endearing of people but I could understand where he was coming from. But just when he seemed to be turning his life around and have something to live for it seems that his time has run out. Or has it?

Ian's character grew a lot through this book and I enjoyed reading it and getting to know the real Ian. He is a great multi faceted character who's strong when needed but also protective and honourable as well.

I loved kyleigh. She's strong but compassionate and fair. She can stand up for herself but doesn't expect great things for herself. She's resigned to her existence. She didn't expect to develop feelings for Ian. I'm glad she did as she deserved to find some happiness as much as Ian did.

They were both good characters that I could connect with and cared what happened to them. It was good to catch up with previous characters from the series and meet some new ones as well.

The story is written well and the plot flows along with lots of romance, suspense and even some comedy. I really like this series. It's a completely different twist on the vampire legend that is really clever. It's a well thought out and executed story world with different and unusual paranormal species, good plots and genuinely unpleasant bad guys.

I enjoyed this from start to finish and can't wait for the next in the series.

I would definitely recommend this and if you're a fan of paranormal romance and you haven't read this great series yet then you are definitely missing out.
