About the Book:
Alexandra Carlton, Alex to her friends, the only girl born into a family of vampire hunters with strict rules. She lives and hunts by the Code. Despite insecurities and self-esteem issues about her appearance, she eagerly tracks a rogue vamp carrying a contagious virus, deadly to vampires and humans alike, to prove her worth, to her family and herself.
Alex meets Stefan Marin, a brooding 500 year old vampire. He helps her not only on her quest but tames her wildest passions and discovers the true beauty within her, the beauty he can’t help but fall in love with.
Together, Alex and Stefan break all the rules uncovering more than a virus—hot sex, and an uptight FBI Special Agent, spanking, hot sex, a nosy, meddling brother, more hot sex, bondage and submission, murder, and bad vampires.
Will their love survive the wild side they were born to live?
Born to be Wild is just the right combination of sweet love story and naughty sex appeal. The strength of the two main characters Alex, a vampire hunter, and Stefan, a vampire and powerful enforcer, give this book a tantalizing twist. The ability to walk away mid-story is nonexistent, because the plot leaves you begging for more.
One part mystery, one part crime novel, one part love story, and five parts mouthwatering vamp appeal; Cynthia Arsuaga struck gold with this one. The reader can’t help but fall in love with the characters and dream of being transported into a world of vamps and upscale clubs.
If this book is, any indication this author has only one way to go in this industry and that is up. I can’t wait to see what she releases next.
