Overview

Talisen Rudyard is determined to honor her late grandmother's memory by finishing the unwritten chapter of the Rudyard family history. To do so, she must unravel the secret that has eluded generations of Benedikts and Rudyards alike: the fate of eighteenth-century sea captain Arthur Ellory Benedikt, who vanished on the night of his wedding to her distant ancestor, over two hundred years ago.

Having grown up with her grandmother's stories about heroic Captain Benedikt, Talisen has come to feel a passion for him no other man has ever inspired, in spite of the centuries that separate his lifetime from hers. But facing the truth about his alleged disappearance could break her heart. Eyewitness accounts claim Benedikt turned up in Europe only weeks after he vanished, that he was seen in the company of a mysterious noblewoman. Talisen can't bear the thought that the larger-than-life hero of her dreams could be so faithless.

From the moment Ellory meets Talisen, he aches to prove her love for him is deserved. He longs to be that man for her, the one and only man who holds her heart. But how can she love him once she learns the price she must pay for the truth she's seeking?

That her beloved Captain Benedikt is alive--and a vampire.

Editorial Reviews

BlueInk Review - Paul Goat Allen
This one came highly recommended from a friend, and I was not disappointed. A delightful blend of historical mystery and romance, the story revolves around a woman named Talisen who seeks to unravel the mystery surrounding 18th century sea captain Arthur Ellory Benedikt, who vanished on the night of his wedding to one of Talisen's distant ancestors. Enamored with the heroic captain from stories her late grandmother used to tell, Talisen is totally unprepared to meet a man who should've been dead for two centuries…. Tonally, this one reminded me a little of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint-Germain saga--and that's a big compliment.
