“Bane lost his humanity ages ago. Nothing is more important than protecting his Vampire Motorcycle Club from the death magic invading his territory. The most ancient of vampires, he seeks cold, unfeeling, bloody vengeance…until a frustratingly sexy human doctor is thrust into his path. She tempts Bane to distraction. And distraction is deadly in his world.
Buttoned-up and meticulous Dr. Ryan St. Cloud never thought she’d find herself in the mix of a motorcycle club, let alone one full of terrifyingly badass vampires. Or how intrigued she is by their dark and enigmatic leader, who seems balanced on the knife’s edge of killing her…or claiming her.
But Bane’s choice is harder than it seems, because when that danger hits too close to home, he’s forced to choose between her life and everyone else’s…” – Amazon
Thank you, Alyssa Day! Bane’s Choice is the sexy vampire fantasy novel I’ve been missing. I have stopped reading some well known vampire series because I just couldn’t take the alpha never learning to give a little with his true love or there being so much sex and barely any story. Day has found the perfect balance of an alpha not locking his love up so no one hurts them (although he wants to) and lots of great storylines to go with the steamy scenes.
And to go along with the great character development, Day actually incorporates a fantasy world that incorporates more than just vampires and/or werewolves. This opens up so many potential storylines and love matches that I am excited to see what Day has in store for us. The action scenes were excellent and I love that Day included two human caretakers who may be younger than the vampires, but help to keep them stable, and are still wonderfully racy for an older couple.
The reader may be dropped into the middle of the action without one hundred pages of back story before, but I think Day is able to pull it off. She works the back story in as the book progresses, and leaves some of the characters with a bit of mystery about them at the end. But if you’ve read any romance you should be able to see the pairings that will be coming and have an inkling of their dramatic/tragic backstory.
I’m going to start online stalking (but in a nice way) Day so I can find out when the next VMC book is coming. And since this is the first book I’ve read by her, I’m intrigued to read some more of her stories.
