Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.
Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.
Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.
Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?
Book 1 in the Sanctuary, Texas Series
This is a new series by Krystal Shannan, it has more of an erotic paranormal romance sense then her other books. I have to say that I truly enjoyed it and thought that it was her best book to date. There is a little bit of everything in this book, different paranormal beings, humans, danger, mystery, people finding love, and yes steamy sex.
Bailey( Human) lives in a divided futuristic united states where supernatural beings are discriminated against and humans are taught to fear them. Bailey is trying to escape her abusive ex, who is supposed to be a protector of the law but is shady as all get out.
When she finds that he has found her location, she runs and is followed by a djinn with evil intent. She is "saved" by Erick Thorson and brought to Sanctuary. Where a whole of other supernaturals live and humans rarely visit without supervision. Has Bailey found a place where she will be safe and could call home?
As you all know I hate ruining stories, Bailey has a lot of issues due to her abusive ex and refuses to be a slave to anyone ever again. Can she learn to trust Erick and have the strength to stick up for herself when things get rough?
*There are BDSM elements in this book. But I want to say that Krystal does a great job with her characters by allowing Bailey to trust Erick to help her overcome her fears. I just want to say that this is a fictional book. She has her characters explain that BDSM culture must have consent. Bailey's ex was an evil bastard. That being said, Erick and Bailey have a chemistry that even when shit hits the fan, they still find each other.
Over all this is a great read.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 Genie Lamps
* I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest review.
