Peek Inside Love Me to Death

Up until the moment she's shot and left for dead, biologist Elena Arcos lived a pretty nondescript life. Now the “Slayer” Nikolai Itzov has abducted and pulled Elena into a world she never knew existed alongside her own. He's been sent to kill her before she transforms into the dark creature she's destined to become. Yet something in this not-quite-human woman calls to Nikolai's blood. To his desire. To his soul. Now he must protect her...until she changes into the one thing he is sworn by birth to hate.

Medical research scientist Elena Arcos has always lived her life under the radar. When she is shot in a convenience store robbery, she finds herself rocketed into supernatural insanity courtesy of a sexy immortal law enforcer. He’s convinced she’s some kind of freaky half vampire thing and that her deceased dad was the real deal: a blood sucking monster. Yeah, right.

As a Slayer, an elite law enforcer descended from Azrael himself, Nikolai Itzov’s orders from the Underveil General are clear: Kill Elena Arcos or die. The only thing holding him back from that directive is the overwhelming urge to protect her. Too bad she’s also the offspring of his father’s murderer. Kissing Elena, let along being with her body and soul, can never happen.

Nikolai and Elena find themselves in a life and death battle to stop a plot designed to lift the Underveil and enslave humans. With her analytical mind and his centuries of training, they might be able to foil the plot with their lives, and maybe even with their hearts intact. But in order to succeed, he must help her become the very thing he hates the most: an Undead.

4 - "The knowledge is mine. The discovery is yours." Stars!

Love Me to Death is the second book I have read by Marissa Clarke in recent months and after being massively impressed with her first contemporary romance offering, I had high expectations for the first book in the Underveil series. She didn ...more

By Rachel October 18, 2014

Action-packed and sexy as hell, Marissa Clarke’s LOVE ME TO DEATH is a fantastic and utterly delectable start to this new series. Fascinating lore and intriguing characters that leave the door wide open for many exciting stories to come, two protagonists whose chemistry sizzles, whose personalities ...more

By T.J. October 03, 2015

Wow! I loved it. Great world-building and fantastic secondary characters, each with a distinct voice, helped push this one to a five star rating. Of course the main characters were pretty smoking hot, too. Nik is a strong alpha male that I loved, and Elena is badass in her own right. Fun, witty dial ...more

By Monica **can't read fast enough** December 30, 2014

LOVE ME TO DEATH is the latest addition to my favorite reads list. I'm a big paranormal romance fan and when I stumble onto a new series that has as much potential as this one I get all giddy inside. Unfortunately with a lot of opening books to a series there is more world building than good story, ...more

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This books packs a lot in with the paranormal genre with many different species portrayed in the book.

I’m not going to rehash the synopsis because as you see… it is long.. but it is also perfect and a great insight into this brilliant book. I loved everything about this book, the characters, the worlds, the different kinds of pe ...more

My Review:
This is a very long book and it starts off in a very different place from where it ends. I'll admit, this book took me longer to read than normal...around 4-5 days versus my normal 1 and I really can't pinpoint why. The book is absolutely action-filled and interesting, but I did feel that ...more

By Whimsy100 July 06, 2014

Wow. What a surprise. This book was sexy, funny and different. ...more

By MsRomanticReads October 28, 2014

Love Me to Death left me with a very promising first impression. It was fast-paced, had interesting characters, humor, very good suspense and action, a few surprises, but above all it was very entertaining.

Elena Arcos hadn’t really been living. If it hadn’t been for her getting shot during a conveni ...more

By Crack A Book Cafe September 08, 2016

This sucked me in from the beginning! This is the first book in the Underveil Series. It’s fun, has some quirky characters and there is A LOT of world building going on. It has vampires, elves, shifters etc so you get a little bit of everything supernatural and more!

The story opens with the heroine, ...more

By Jamie *Gypsy Smut-a-teer* November 15, 2014

I really really liked this book. It really packed a punch, and was unlike anything I've been reading lately.

Elena is just a normal girl getting through life, when she finds herself in a gas station that's being robbed by a red eyed killer. She tries to hide but of course he finds her and shoots her ...more

By Danielle November 16, 2014

Love Me to Death started off with a bang (literally) and just kept right on going. There wasn't a single moment that felt as if it were dragging along and there wasn't a single second that I wasn't sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what happens next!

The book starts off in the middle ...more

After she is shot in a convenience store robbery Elena Arcos finds herself rocketed from comfortable predictability to supernatural insanity with her very own angel of death and soon they are both in a life and death battle to stop a plot to lift the veil and enslave humans in this thrilling paranor ...more

By Nicola October 22, 2014

If a sexy, edgy, paranormal romance is what you're looking for, then I highly recommend Love Me To Death. Marissa Clarke has brought us a world filled with intrigue, heat, atmosphere and fight and I enjoyed it hugely.

Elena Arcos is living a mortal in a world filled, unbeknownst to her, with immortal ...more

By Stacy November 13, 2014

I'm not going to lie, I was mighty confused during the first couple chapters of LOVE ME TO DEATH, thankfully things become more clear as Elena learns what the heck is happening to her and who the heck Nikolai is.

Elena has NO clue what's going on when she wakes up after being shot during a robbery. ...more

Nikolai Itzov was set on his goals; kill the girl and avenge his father’s death. Unfortunately, Fate has other plans for him. After seeing Elena and making a connection, he couldn’t do it. For all the times, he had gone to battle and killed, he just couldn’t do it. The question is, what is the reaso ...more

By K.M. November 27, 2014

My review 5/5

This book is a wild ride and it is hard for me to believe the total shift the book takes from a convenience store robbery to the concluding paragraph.

It is hard to write this review without spoiling the book. It is the story of the underveil, a world unseen by humans. In this world, va ...more

By Claudia October 01, 2014

this was a great story in a real great world. but I really thought about giving it only 3,5 stars. The reason for that is, that despite the great story and the worldbuilding and the in general really interesting characters, I had troubles with Elena - she was really annoying around the middle and al ...more

By Heather September 17, 2014

Nikolai sure isn't shy that boy will drop his drawers no matter who he's in front of, "you were already dead when I found you." He stepped out of his pants and froze...well, except for the part of him that obviously approved of her stare. It practically waved and shouted "Howdy!" Apparently Elena br ...more

By Fizza October 08, 2014

The best begining ever! I loved it so much that I had to keep reading. It was pretty good book. I liked all the characters especially time folder, I hope there will be a book about him as well. The story revolves around Elena and Nikolai. It is a paranormal novel set in a world of supernatural. It w ...more
