Review: Macrieve by Kresley Cole

MacRieve (Immortals After Dark, #14)
In this pulse-pounding Immortals After Dark tale, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole delves into the darkest mysteries and deepest passions of Clan MacRieve. . .
A Beast In Torment
Uilleam MacRieve believed he’d laid to rest the ghosts of his boyhood. But when a brutal torture revives those ancient agonies and destroys his Lykae instinct, the proud Scot craves the oblivion of death. Until he finds her—a young human so full of spirit and courage that she pulls him back from the brink.
A Beauty In Chains
Seized for the auction block, Chloe Todd is forced to enter a terrifying new world of monsters and lore as a bound slave. When offered up to creatures of the dark, she fears she won’t last the night. Until she’s claimed by him—a tormented immortal with heartbreaking eyes, whose touch sets her blood on fire.
A Full Moon On The Rise
With enemies circling, MacRieve spirits Chloe away to the isolated Highland keep of his youth. But once he takes her to his bed, his sensual mate becomes something more than human, evoking his savage past and testing his sanity. On the cusp of the full moon, can he conquer his worst nightmare to save Chloe . . . from himself?

 Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

Every time I read a book in this series I find my new favourite Lorean... but MacRieve has been sat on my bookshelves tempting me for so long its hard not to swoon when you open the book. Who can resist the big Scottish Wolfy? Not me. I am a HUGE fan of the Lykae and I am super excited to see that we are likely to be getting another Lykae book (Hello Munro), but after a quick peek I see that it isn't gonna happen for the next couple of books. *insert super sad face here*
One of the things I absolutely fricken love about Cole's books is every single one of her leading men in this series is damaged. And every single one of them is hotter than hell. I like my big sexy beasties with issues that make you want to save them from themselves. And Uilleam MacRieve has his fair share of issues.... and then some.

Many of the other books in this series have been filled with action and adventure whilst seeing our main characters trying to come to terms with their sudden and sometimes unwelcome new mate. We don't have that with MacRieve, with the exception of the scene with Uilleam first meets Chloe, after that this book is simply about how they cope with what fate has in store for them. And some people may believe that their story would be somewhat diminished but that couldn't be further from the truth.

In typical Cole fashion this book is steamy! And well worth a re-read.
