Summary from Goodreads:

Their Union Is His Revenge.

Isolde de Lara considers her wedding day her death day. To end a years-long war, she is to marry vampire king, Adrian Aleksandr Vasiliev, and kill him.

But her assassination attempt is thwarted and Adrian threatens that if Isolde tries to kill him again, he will raise her as the undead. Faced with the possibility of becoming the thing she hates most, Isolde seeks other ways to defy him and survive the brutal vampire court.

Except it isn’t the court she fears most — it’s Adrian. Despite their undeniable chemistry, she wonders why the king — fierce, savage, merciless — chose her as consort.

The answer will shatter her world.

There was a lot going on in this book, but I kinda liked it.

The author has a way of melding multiple different aspects into their story. Vampires, murder, Zombies. At times it felt like a lot and probably could have been condensed down into one kind of paranormal lore, but it still made for an interesting story.

Of course, there's a lot of steamy action in this book and some emotions that weave throughout the story. All in all this was an interesting story that kept me reading.
