Bloodthirsty rogue vampires kidnap the only woman Hunter has ever loved so he must choose between taking down his former master and losing his beloved. Centuries-old vampire Hunter Pierce doesn't believe in love and prefers to spend his time alone. When he meets pathologist Tori Roberts at a wedding, something about her melancholy disposition intrigues him. He reveals he's a vampire, yet she doesn't shy away. He takes a chance and goes after her, which leads to disastrous events neither Hunter nor Tori can forget. With rogue vampires wreaking havoc on both vampires and humans, Hunter asks for Tori's help in creating a cure for Nirvana, which causes the rogue vampires to kill at random. She agrees but neither Hunter nor Tori are prepared for what happens next. A kidnapping, a deadly confrontation, and the realization that love is stronger than immortality.
Honorable Rogue is a paranormal romantic thriller I couldn't put down. I love a dark vampire tale with a huge dash of romance and suspense thrown in. Honorable Rogue is that and so much more. I connected with Hunter right away as well as Tori. Their fragility, while not apparent right away, had my heart breaking for them. Yes, a vampire can be fragile, especially when it has lived a life similar to Hunter's. The plot moved at a great pace with action, intrigue, romance, suspense, politics, and an ending I didn't see coming. The vampire politics were fascinating and added to the intricate world-building. This is my first time reading a book by Linda J. Parisi and I'm impressed. Her descriptive narration plunged me into the story while the added emotional tension had me whipping through the pages. If you like your vampires dark and brooding with intense action, pick up Honorable Rogue. If you're a paranormal romance reader, you're going to love Honorable Rogue. I can't wait to see what happens next. Highly recommend!
