Overview

Would you be willing to betray the person you love in order to save their life?

Clarissa's husband Matt is dying of cancer. They've tried everything that medicine has to offer, both traditional and experimental, and nothing's worked. Clarissa spends her days in the hospital, watching the man she loves slip closer and closer to certain death.

When her sister tells her she knows a way to save Matt, but it involves visiting a local club run by vampires, Clarissa is outraged that her sister would believe something so insane. But then she learns the truth.

Braden, the sexy and mysterious vampire who runs the club, does indeed have the means to save Matt, but he demands a high payment in return. He doesn't want money, her blood, or even her life…he wants something she never expected. Clarissa has a choice—spend twenty-four hours in Braden's bed or let her husband die.

But what she never foresaw was how much more the vampire would truly want after he'd given her the gift of the darkest magic.

    Not the same old same old, if infidelity upsets you skip this on

    Not the same old same old, if infidelity upsets you skip this one,
    otherwise it's good. I could really sense the grief and the see why the
    heroine made the choices she did.

    (2.5 stars) The story begins with Clarissa mourning her husband

    (2.5 stars) The story begins with Clarissa mourning her husband who's at the end stages of terminable cancer and grows to a story of what would you do to save your husbands life and is infidelity there as well? Though the story as an idea is good and could easily be very hot - it didn't quite manage to do it for me and I realized the reason for that were Clarissa's reactions to what happened around her, to her.

    Clarissa's character was a contradiction, she was the caring concerned wife when she was at her husband's death bed, and surprisingly spunky and argumentative when with her sister and the master vampire - it left me feeling 'where did that come from'? Which caused me to not be able to be focused and immersed in the story. Hence the low star rating.

    The romance wasn't really a romance it was sex with a vamp under certain terms and tender feelings for her husband. It picked up towards the end of the novella and the ending I though was very interesting... a cool end for the story.

    All in all it was an okay novella, and had a good amount of sexy action. :)

    A compelling, yet hot tale that will make you think

    Ashlynn Monroe has concocted a truly unique take on the vampire theme. This novella packs a punch, and it's obvious the lengths the heroine will go to in order to save her husband. That kind of characterization isn't easy to portray in a novella-length story, but Ms. Monroe manages it with aplomb.
    I'm a cancer survivor, so this story really hit at the heart of me, but you certainly don't need to have gone through something like that to understand a deep love. Ms. Monroe's vampire is multi-dimensional and actually shows vulnerability, which is refreshing to see too.
    Overall, I'd recommend this novella to anyone who's looking for "not another vampire story".
