Larissa has dreamed of a mysterious man for many years. When she meets the man who will become her boss, she knows he's her dream man. Too bad he's always such a perfect gentleman.
Damien is simply biding his time. He needs Larissa with every fiber of his being, but he's willing to wait until he's certain the time is right.
Now, having stood all he wants to, Damien begins his unique brand of seduction to claim Larissa as his. That is, if you can call a vampire's idea of collecting what's his "seduction."
Office politics takes on a whole new meaning when the boss really does have the hots for his employee and the seduction has a paranormal flair.
Damien is the boss and Larissa is his exclusive attorney, but she has no idea just how exclusive she really is to him. He’s plotted and planned and this book jumps right in at the moment Damien is going to strike. What he doesn’t realize is that Larissa is special in her own right and has a secret that the author used to make this scenario plausible.
I was treated to various imaginings in the beginning of the story from each of the main characters’ point of view. There was no doubt in my mind that these two people were right for each other based upon their internal dialogue. It’s when Damien finally can’t take any more and makes the first real move that the action picks up and never stops until Larissa says the words that make Damien’s life complete.
For paranormal romance readers this book has delicious bite. For erotic romance readers, this story should satisfy. MINE! is short, sizzling and very sexy. I liked Larissa’s innocence and in a way, Damien is just as innocent because of a fact that is revealed about his existence. Timing is everything for Damien and for me, the time reading this book was well spent. It was enjoyable and entertaining.
