Overview

Nineteen-year-old Aric Reynolds has spent most of his life in boarding schools, summer camps, or on tour as a prodigy with the piano. His wealthy parents have never had time for him, and after a failed year at college, they have decided on a final course of action. Aric is brought to Nikola Jovanović's beautiful, sprawling manor in Serbia.

Nikola is known the world around as a master in music, unsurpassed by any, but terribly reclusive. For one year, Aric is to be his student, but in the modern day, it is easy for Aric to learn Nikola's secrets. With a dark shadow lurking from Nikola's past and Aric's stubborn, promiscuous nature, the sexual tension between the pair simply explodes, and Aric's very mortal life is held in the balance.

Editorial Reviews

Lily at I Love Books
The characters are interesting and their developing relationship kept me engaged. I... was impressed with the way the authors presented them here especially that the "turning" or "becoming" a vampire wasn't glamorized or sanitized. Nikola isn't perfect, in fact they both make mistakes throughout the story but that just added to the overall feel of the book. They both love and hurt each other deeply but in the end realize that to make it through eternity all they really need is each other.
Literary Nymphs
The authors... have done an excellent job mixing the old world vampire with the modern one readers have become familiar with.... Rachmaninoff spans a period of several years, and is at times dark and intense; yet watching Aric and Nikola find their way will keep you turning the pages. I was happy with the way the authors wrapped up the story and will more than likely read it again.
eBook Addict Reviews
I found this book to be a fascinating amalgam of history, character development, romance and just plain human interest; and I was somewhat surprised, although pleasantly so, to find myself eager to just sit and absorb as I read.
Cryselle's Craziness
This writing team has done several things very well -- the emotional arcs for both Aric and Nikola are beautifully drawn, aside from the incident of easy forgiveness, and the incorporation of the music into the initial arc was well done, though possibly its more accessible for someone with a little musical training. The sense of place was vivid, especially during a section where the pair traveled extensively.

I wasn't expecting this adventure to be so captivating and well written that I couldn't put the book down. The characterization for the main characters is amazing and you truly end up lost into their story as if it were your own. I recommend this story to all m/m lovers because it is one of the best love stories that I read in a long time.

This was a very good romance. It was long enough to really get into the charactors. There were enough twists and turns to kept my interest throughout the whole story. I highly recommend, it was well worth the money.
