Aidan O’Neill is dangerous. Make that deadly. A vampire prince who turned his back on his throne, enraging his king and marking himself for death.
It’s hardly the first time.
The only thing the ancient Celtic warrior cares about anymore is seeing the sun again. After all, it has been over 1100 years. When his best friend stumbles across a secret potion than can grant his wish, Aidan can’t resist stealing it. His fateful choice may change the world forever.
Heather Kantos is Ireland to help a friend, but she’s not happy about it. The world-famous model hides a darkness deep inside her. A darkness she's shared with no one.
When Aidan and Heather come together, a volatile chain of events ignite that will take them all the way from Istanbul to Ireland, from his past to her future, from darkness to light and back again.
Can two people who have sworn off love make their way to each other despite a vicious demon bent on revenge, a bloodthirsty psychopath who would do anything to fullfill his greatest wish and an obsessive goddess of death who can't let go of the man she has loved for more than a millenium?
How far into the dark would you venture to save the the one you love?

Heather R. Blair wrote her first book in the first grade and hasn't stopped since. Back then it was all about horses, now it's pretty much the dark, sexy and shivery.

She also does murals, rides herd on four monsters(otherwise known as children, ages 8-18), is slightly obsessed with Martin Freeman, British television and things that go bump in the night. She loves reading,(duh!)and interacting with other bibliophiles and authors.

What a fabulous storyline filled with rich characterization and deep point of view! But the story is really, really dark. Painfully dark at times. Cringe inside, close my eyes, la...la...la...la...la - is it over yet, dark. If this was a movie, I guarantee I would not have been able to watch some of the scenes described. But they were absolutely necessary for this story to ring true. What I loved most about this story was how all the pieces really fit well together. It is complex as hell but I was able to follow along. A few scenes could have been dropped (IMHO) and the backstory explained in a sentence or two, but for the most part the story flowed well, despite the fact that the author regularly flips back and forth between present day and over a thousand years earlier when Aidan became a vampire. Bav is such an intriguing secondary character. She is evil and selfish and yet I can't help but feel sorry for her. Aidan is far more fleshed out as a character than the heroine, Heather, but I suppose that's because he had lived over a thousand years already. I was on the verge of thinking Heather was one of those TSTL (too stupid to live) heroines, when I realized that she didn't fall into that bucket because her choices, while perhaps reckless, were motivated by her love for Aidan and not some stupid need to prove herself. I really loved how it all came together in the end for these two. For a while I really wondered if they might not get their HEA. Rest assured that they do. So why not the full five stars? Given the nature of the storyline and some of the things that happened, I really believe I should have been bawling my eyes out. And while I did get watery eyed briefly at one point, I wasn't a leaky faucet. Only stories that draw out intense emotions in me get the full five stars - happiness, laughter, fear, crying. I'm not sure I can put my finger on why I didn't feel more strongly. Maybe the dialog need tightening? A little more active voice? Not sure. Final verdict? It's a great story that is well worth reading if you can handle the dark matter.
