In Dark Passages, Tristan Morin is a vampire on a mission: to not fall in love with Karen Pierce. To do so would prove that humans and Brethren were meant to be physically and emotionally bound to each other -- something he, as a full-blooded Brethren, refuses to believe. It would be so much easier if Karen wasn't beautiful. And if there wasn't something about her that draws him like a moth to a flame, damn near impossible to resist.
Karen has always felt an inexplicable attraction to Tristan. More than just the fact he's strikingly handsome, it's as if being with him is something natural, comfortable and right. But soon a brash choice on his part leaves her heartbroken and confused, and a sadistic new enemy will put their tentative love -- and their lives -- to the ultimate test.
Tristan knows there is something about Karen that is hard to deny, but he feels he must. He catches her scent and it drives him wild. What does this lead to? A hot romp that he will never forget.
Karen can not believe she had finally made love to Tristan. However, he brushes her off the very next morning and practically throws her out of his house. Broken hearted, Karen decides she needs to let go of her love for Tristan. Maybe.
This was a good read. However, for me it felt like a secondary story, as if the main characters were missing. The romance was there and the story was good, but all to brief compared to the previous novels. I had gotten used to the twists of the series and this one was missing that special element.
