The Claiming (Dark Desires #1) by Julieanne Lynch

The Claiming (Dark Desires Book 1) - Julieanne Lynch
The Claiming tells of Francesca's story. She was betrothed at a very young age, and only finds out on her eighteenth birthday who it is to. She doesn't know him, his likes/dislikes, and has no idea how he will treat her. Although she gets more than she bargained for to begin with, she soon accepts her situation and is happy to make the most of it. 
This is well-written, with a smooth yet fast pace. Although this is a contemporary story, there is almost a paranormal feel to it. I kept expecting him or her to turn into a vampire! This is the first book in the series, so you can expect more to come from Julieanne Lynch. 
* I received this book from Totally Bound Publishing in return for a fair and honest review. *
