Violet Summers originally published this book back in 2009. I love vampire novels, but I have always found it hard to find a good vampire novel. This book exceeded all my expectations.
Prudence Longfellow is a part of an ancient line of women who are healers, historians and guardians. They are feared and respected among the world they are a part of. Prudence is a forensic accountant. She is there to track missing money for Magnus Crowe. She comes across as not only strong but smart.
Magnus Crowe does not trust beautiful woman because he learned the hard way it does not always end well. He is attracted to Prudence even though he does not want to be. In addition, he is worried because he spots his sire Contessa Allessandra DiCasca. He wonders about her motives. He comes across as a strong and sensitive guy wrapped up in one.
I enjoyed watching as Prudence and Magnus fought there attraction to each other. The chemistry they had together was explosive. The sex scenes were off the charts. They make a great couple.
I think that this book was pretty short considering the plot. I wish it were longer. Overall, this was a wonderful book. The characters just came alive. I would love to know more about this world that Sierra and VJ Summers created. I hope that there are more books by this author about this world.
