Yes there were hot sex scenes. Yes it is about the Upyrs, but the story was totally unbelievable and the plot too complex for it's own good. I could not connect with the characters at all- how can a book be good when you cannot establish any empathy with the Hero or Heroine. I really lost interest in what became of them: take Ulric, the hero. One minute sad and angry looking for his old love Gillian, but suddenly falling for someone else. I bought this book based on the reviews I had read. Most of the time I use reviews to find 'new' authors. Most reviews are helpful. In this case I feel let down by bad plot, lackluster characters and insipid writing.
