Jasmine Hunter finds herself knee deep in a decadent vampire nest in Prague. A killer lurks the medieval city and is preying on blood donors who frequent the home of the local Vampire Mistress.
With her teammates from Scotland Yard in tow Jasmine, must attempt to discover the murderer's identity.
But will things go to plan? Sex dungeons, submissive human pets, and sexy dominant males are a lot for a rookie to cope with.
Especially when Eric is the last person she expects to see…
Requested to assist with the hunt for a vicious serial killer by an old friend, Eric is left speechless to find Jasmine offering herself up as food. The attraction between them is burning as red hot as before, and his lust for the feisty female is just as deep.
More disturbing, his emotions which he normally has leashed, once more slip in her presence. Yet this time they feel different. Darker, primal, and savage yet Eric cannot explain why. The insidious pull of the other predators around him is also more than a sweet temptation he finds himself unable to resist.
Combining forces, Jasmine and Eric must play the parts of Master and submissive.

Can they work out who the killer is in a household full of deception and secrets before it is too late? Or will a price be paid in blood….

— THE HUNTER CHRONICLES —
Frostbite, Book #1 >> F R E E!
When we last saw Jasmine, she was finishing up her assignment in Paris. Of course she did more than just her job in Paris.
You can't call the ending of FrostBite a cliff-hanger, it ends after the story is completed, but of course, we found that there is more than meets the eye. This becomes more apparent in the next book in the series. I don't know how, but it seems that Claire Marta pulled out all the stops with this book.
I was able to get my hands on an early copy of Dark Desires, and let me tell you, Claire is not playing around with this book. She looks sweet and innocent, but really she's a dirty little Brit.
Let's start at the beginning. Jasmine and her team are investigating a serial killer in Prague, and they end up in the middle of a vampire nest. The last person Jasmine expects to see is Eric, the vampire she met months ago in Paris.
As one might expect the chemistry level between these two are off the charts. My love for Eric came back full force, from the first page until the last I was as entranced with him as Jasmine was-even though she pretended she wasn't.
I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I first picked up this book, I knew it was going to have a very different feel than the first book, but I figured, oh I will get through this easily. I couldn't have been more wrong. Marta pulled most of the stops out with this one. I have a feeling she's going to throw some major twists in the other books that are going to both please me and piss me off.
As it goes, whenever I read a book by an author I love I never want it to end, with Dark Desires, I was dying to find out what was going on, because Claire Marta has the skill to throw in just enough suspense to keep you guessing the whole time. I thought I had the ending plotted out a few times, I couldn't have been more wrong.
When I got to the end of this book I was in shock. I think that's the best way to put it. I did not, could not believe that Claire threw that ending in. When I say I'm dying for the third book already I mean it. I read Dark Desires two weeks ago and instead of helping me, it made my addiction that much more. I am addicted to the words of Claire Marta.
There's action, fight scenes that I love, and of course sex. I just have to say that vampire sex is the best sex. Don't believe me? Go read this series.
There's such a formal way that Claire Marta strings her words together, it's so different than other books you read, but it works. There are so many books, especially in the paranormal genre where the writing takes a backseat to the actual story. Not in this series. The writing makes it better, you are able to read the words as they flow into each other.
I don't know what to say about this book. I loved it, but I wasn't surprised by that. It was Eric and Jasmine, of course I was going to love it.
From the writing, to the action, to the suspense Claire Marta kept me on my toes. I can only imagine what the next book is going to bring.
All in all, if you haven't started this series you need to. There is only so much I can give you without you actually reading it.
Thank you Claire Marta for bringing me more of what I love, of course you left me wanting way more at the same time. You have become my drug, and I don't want to be sober anytime soon.
*Quote- "He was a vampire who prided himself on feeling nothing. Who had been taught emotions only ever lead to trouble. Mere seconds near her and that dissolved."
"She was his. His to pleasure. His to bite."
