They’ve burned for each other for two years, the forbidden attraction between them growing each night. Now resisting the sinful desires of their hearts is becoming impossible.
Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his.
Lilah has fought her desire for Javier since arriving at his theatre as a servant but each glance he has stolen, his eyes promising pleasure that will satisfy her longing for him, has chipped away at her defences and she can no longer deny her need and her forbidden feelings for the powerful vampire male.
When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilah’s master keep them apart forever? (Goodreads Synopsis)
Covet started really strongly. I loved the premise and I enjoyed the interaction between the two main characters. I might have liked a slightly more balanced ratio between story line and sex, but then I guess that is not the aim of this tale. I did have a gripe over the ending too. Basically, without giving too much away, a friend made a huge sacrifice for them, but after mentioning it, they headed right back to bed and promptly forgot about him, so we never found out his fate, which seemed a major loose end and made the leads look selfish. So, overall, three stars from me. If you are looking for a quick, sexy PNR, you'll probably enjoy this, but do not expect the plot development to come up to par with the bedroom scenes.
