In 1314 Darius Macleod lies dying on the battlefield of Bannockburn when his twin brother Demetri¿s friend Remont informs him he will only survive his fatal wounds if he converts to the life of the undead. Demetri asks Remont to change Darius. Soon afterward he comes home from the war healthy and alive. However his wife Rose worries about her spouse who is not the same person who performed his duty with honor. She finally confronts him he admits that he became a vampire to save his life. Horrified and terrorized, Rose flees only to fall down steps killing herself and their unborn child.-------------- In 1818 Darius is still missing his Rose until his brother introduces him to Gabrielle Wentworth, whose uncle has ¿sold¿ her into a betrothal with the detestable Lord Sutherland. Perhaps it is her resemblance to his memory of Rose, but for the first time in five hundred years Darius feels alive as he wants her. However, in spite of his efforts including his supernatural skills, Darius struggles to persuade Gabrielle that they belong together preferably for eternity as she has family demons eating at her soul.-------------------- This entertaining heated Regency paranormal romance stars two delightful protagonists who belong together. Although Gabrielle¿s uncle and Sutherland are caricatures of evil humans, they serve as a counterpoint to the siblings leading to readers pondering just who the monsters are. Fans will appreciate this exciting tale as Darius will do anything including accept his final death if that means his beloved Gabriella lives a safe and contented life.-------------- Harriet Klausner

Couldn't put this book down. Love the storyline between Darius and Gabby..Wish there had been more with Demetri and Remont..The love scenes were hot and steamy. Will reread this again again...

Not bad for me was not expecting certain things in this book but i did enjoy the read....not into the vampire books at times however, i still found it an interesting read.

One reviewer wrote that she didn't like the graphic sex scenes...apparently she's not in tune with her own sexuality! :) This book was FANTASTIC! Beautiful, romantic, with a plot that moved along nicely. And YES, there were some incredibly-explicit, erotic sex interludes. I enjoyed the characters and enjoyed many spontaneous orgasms reading the book. One I will enjoy reading again! :)

I finished this book in five hours. I LOVED IT! I found it refreshing, charming, and very sensual. I truly felt the love between the characters. Only bad I can say is there is no sequel! If you're looking for a refreshing story, with many sex scenes this is the book for you .

With the wave of vampire romance hitting the scene I found myself curious about an author I had personally never read. I found the writing style to be an interesting depart from what I normally read. The ending was somewhat climatic and I wasn't prepared for the gay twist but interesting in the end.

A friend of mine at work bought it for me because she raved about this book and wanted me to check it out. So, I did. It was not something that I would normally pick out for myself and read, but I have to say that I could not put it down. The plot and twists were very interesting. I liked the two love stories going on at the same time. I do wish that the book was longer or that there was another one to make it a series.

This is my first Julia Timpleton novel. I couldn't put it down. So good that I have read it twice. I enjoyed the plot and the characters very much. Bonus: a lot of hot, sexy and sensual love scenes. Highly recommended.
