Publisher Blurb:

Have you ever been curious about the Fetish scene? About having the attention of the hottest deadliest vampires out there, all out for your pleasure? Well, Sara lives that life daily. Its normally good to her, but one night the delicate stability in which the entire scene balances blows up in her face, and turns her world upside down, until she doesnt know which way is up. Her boyfriend Gene senses her disquiet, and turns his attention to where her veiled interests now lay. Loren is a rich cultured four-century-old vampire, who has his sights set on Sara, and has made it his prerogative have her at any cost.

Review of book:

I wasn't sure that I'd like this book.  I'm not a fan of short pieces, and even less of serial type stories, but I didn't have a choice.  Kayden McLeod grabbed my literary throat and refused to let go until I was utterly and thoroughly in love with Sara.  The first installment of the Blackbourne Coven trilogy, Lost has all of the elements that make for one hell of a riveting plot: love, lust, sex, and angst to name a few.  Throw in a seemingly tough as nails, drop dead gorgeous male with the capacity for love that transcends time and bloodlines, and you've got a recipe for success.

In spite of its size - just seventy-five pages- Lost is jam packed with enough action and emotion, that frankly you'll be surprised that you've reached the end.  Sara is a strong woman, who's tough exterior belies the profound sense of sadness she feels at her perceived lack of usefulness to those around her.  She follows the rules set by her vampire coven and their ruling body, the council, believing that she's more of a bother than she's worth.  I loved her vulnerability, and I loved even more that there was someone out there that realized what she was all about. Loren, a hunter from another coven, was everything Sara needed in a partner.  Watching the warm, affectionate, play between them was a nice change of pace from the grunting, monosyllabic alpha males I've come across lately.  Make no mistake; Loren was fierce and deadly, he just reserved his softer side for the female he's come to love.

Lost was a complete "win" for me, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes their erotic romance with a decidedly paranormal twist.  I'll be reading the back catalog Kayden McLeod has for the other covens, because I enjoyed this book so much.

Great review! Thanks for sharing it - it's hard to get a story right when it's a short story but it sounds like this one was well done.
