The stranger silently summoned her across the continents, across the seas. He whispered of eternal torment, of endless hunger . . . of dark, dangerous desires. And somehow American surgeon Shea O'Halloran could feel his anguish, sense his haunting aloneness, and she ached to heal him, to heal herself.
Drawn to the far Carpathian mountains, Shea found a ravaged, raging man, a being like no other. And her soul trembled. For in his burning eyes, his icy heart, she recognized the beloved stranger who'd already become part of her. The imperious Carpathian male had compelled Shea to his side. But was she to be his healer. . . or his prey? His victim . . . or his mate? Was he luring her into madness . . . or would his dark desire make her whole?

This book was probably the most difficult of all the books to write because I had to strike such a balance with the hero, a very tormented individual, powerful and nearly mad. I felt the heroine was extremely courageous under very difficult circumstances. Dark Desire takes place in the Carpathian Mountains and some of the same characters appear again. Usually I start a book and instantly the story line flows to me, but I wasn't satisfied with the beginning of the book for a long, long time. In fact, I worked on the beginning chapter longer than the entire rest of the book! In the end I was very satisfied and can't wait for you to read it and love the characters as much as I do.

~DARK DESIRE REVIEWS~
DESIRE is the terrific second installment in promising author
Christine Feehan's intriguing and complex Carpathian/vampire
Desk of Dorchester Publishing
Feehan's premier novel, DARK PRINCE (August 1999), flew off the bookstore shelves,
set the Internet abuzz, and -- judging from the fan mail --
clearly started a deep throb in the hearts of readers hungry
for a taste of the dark, sometimes dangerous side of passion.
And Ms. Feehan is pleased to oblige that appetite with DARK
DESIRE coming from Love Spell this December. Even more
powerful than her first book, DARK DESIRE probes deeper
into the haunting world of deceptively seductive vampires, dangerous
but delicious Carpathian males, and the innocent women they
hunt to bring light to their darkness. Like Anne Rice, Christine
Feehan creates her own exotic and erotic world exploring emotional
issues crucial to us all-our often wounded spirits, our sometimes
broken hearts, our search for our true soul mate . . . and the
incredible healing power of love.
future titles in Christine Feehan's Dark saga. Each book
will stand alone-but together they weave an intense and intriguing
tapestry of darkness and desire.
