Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher

Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher is the first in a new paranormal romance series, The Sentinel Wars.

Helen Day sees the man who has been in her nightmares about dying in a fire while in a diner. Fear at first sight. For his part, Drake's attention is snagged by this human female who appears to be hiding from him behind her menu.

Helen knows nothing about life beyond regular humans, yet Drake is a Theronai warrior, already alive for 200 years. Something in Helen, who isn't just a human at all, calls to Drake, who takes her away with him. Everything moves fairly quickly for the couple during the four days the book covers, including falling in love, losing one of Drake's friends, and Helen facing her nightmare in reality.

Dialogue is fun and fast-paced, the characters are strong, and Drake has the perfect touch of vulnerability and willingness to do whatever is necessary to keep his woman happy. Sigh.

Yes, I may have been at least partly influenced by the cover to buy this book, but what a lucky find.

My overall personal rating of Burning Alive is a B+.
