From the Back Cover
The vampire was built for sin, every inch of him tight and bulky with corded muscle. A killer, that much was apparent, and she couldn't help but wonder if his appetite for violence would rival his appetites for other...things.
A WOMAN SEDUCED
Naya Morales is no ordinary mortal. Born with a shaman's power, she has devoted her life to tracking down stolen magic-and punishing those who take it. But one fateful night, she follows the alluring call of a sensual magic that is too glorious to be true-and finds herself face to face with a stunningly handsome thief who is too magnificent to resist...
A VAMPIRE ENSLAVED
From the moment he sees her, Ronan knows Naya is his mate. Driven by a deep, almost mystical connection, he aches for her body, hungers for her blood, and swears their souls are anchored together. Naya refuses to believe the words of a vampire-or risk the wrath of her tribe. But when she tries to make Ronan her prisoner, neither chains of silver nor fires of hell can help her escape the truth: she is the one who's been captured...

Ronan left Michael in The Last True Vampire to go help his sister who called him with a somewhat cryptic message regarding a vampire relic she found. The Warrior Vampire picks up with Ronan seeing Naya for the first time and immediately realizing she's his mate. The bad thing is Ronan's memories are pretty much blanked out from the time he left Michael until he woke up chained to Naya's bed.
I'll admit, when I first started reading this book, with the way Ronan appears very out of sorts, I thought I had missed something at the end of The Last True Vampire. But really this was a clever way for Kate Baxter to pull readers even more into the story, because readers, like Ronan, will want to figure out what exactly happened to him. And the way his story coincides with Naya's investigation into the dark magic fits really well together.
I really loved Naya's character. She's a tough chick. She knows her magic and she knows how to get the job done. The problem she faces is that she's part of a people where the men are shifters and the women can track magic. It is tradition for the women to go out and face the dangers of magic, but because female's are rare, when the time comes the women must take a mate and ensure the continuation of the population as the case may be. Naya loves what she does despite the dangers involved. She doesn't want her relationships to be forced upon her and she doesn't want them to come at the expense of her job. So to say she isn't thrilled to find out she's destined to mate Ronan is an understatement.
I loved the overall message that Ronan tries continually to convey to Naya throughout this book: Love doesn't mean losing yourself. And Kate Baxter goes a long way to show that and to reinforce that sentiment a lot through Ronan's actions towards Naya. His instinct is to protect her from dangers, but he never inhibits her from doing her job. It's about partnership and give and take. And there's also the fact that the chemistry between these two characters just jumps off the page. I think The Warrior Vampire has double the heat factor of The Last True Vampire.
I was pretty surprised that the majority of this book is removed from events happening back with Michael in LA. Kate Baxter does a great job with small scenes reminding readers that there is a lot more going on in this world than just what Ronan is experiencing, but not enough to take anything away from his story. I liked the reminders kind of keeping us on track of what I'm assuming is the set up for other characters's stories. You know you've got a good series going on when I'm even interested in getting a story about the villain's history.
Overall I think Warrior is stronger than its predecessor, but that may just be because first books have the task of dealing with the world building and set-up of things to come. With these first two books, this series has been really strong. Based on events in this book, I'm assuming we have Jenner's book to look forward to next. If you haven't yet checked this series out, you can follow along pretty well if you happen to pick up Warrior first, but I think it helps to read them in order.
