    "A lover's quarrel that begins with the rejected lover being dumped for a younger version of himself, this novel focuses on revenge and retaliation at any cost. With an unrivaled focus on threatening his ex lover, the acts of aggression can be quite gruesome and akin to a horror film, with detailed torturous scenes in vivid imagining, it is not for the faint of heart. If you enjoy suspenseful thrillers, this one is for you."

    "I love revenge stories ever since I watched movies like Taken and John Wick, and read books like The Count of Monte Cristo in high school. This is a solid revenge tale, though I think this whole vampire thing is getting crazy tired and people should back off of it."

    "I was surprised to find the characters play well off each other, while the Lady Madelyn, while feminine and strong, allowed Duncan to be there for her. The Baron is a very driven and principled character, and his defense of the good Lady makes this a love story that is well-rounded and chivalrous. "

    "This easily fulfills the topic the solution provides. There is in fact revenge in the book. Romance is a part of it as well. They mix well together as a subgenre and it looks like a promising book. Only thing is the reviews are below 4 but it might still be an interesting read."

    "It is difficult to write revenge themed romance. Stuart does her best job at this, but it comes up lacking. The entire notion of the bad boy image works for a bit, but struggles to retain itself through the entire novel."
