I absolutely loved it! It's been a long time since I've read a great paranormal romance like this one. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Night Life - Elizabeth Guest (5/10)Paranormal Romance. A clever variation on vampires that was totally ruined by poor writing. Cardboard characters and everything very flat. It would have been a waste of my time, except that I was sick and skimming this was about all I was up to.

I was hooked from the first page of this book when a dying pharaoh describes how his body will be preserved for eternity. The author knows her ancient Egyptian mythology that's for sure. Thankfully the historical details enrich the story rather than detract from it. Then the action switches to current day Las Vegas and that's really interesting, too. I was surprised by how different this vampire story is from the rest of the vampire paranormals I've read. Plus, it's a deeply touching love story between an extraordinary man and the woman he has dreamed about for centuries. This is the first book of a new series according to the author's web site. I'm eager to see what she does next!

I couldn't put this book down. It's a really unique version of the vampire story. The ancient Egyptian history seemed well researched and added another layer of intrigue to an intriguing plot. The relationship between the hero and heroine was passionate and very touching. In fact, I loved the characters and what they were willing to sacrifice for each other. The book also had a wow ending! I highly recommend Night Life to romance readers.

He was a revered pharaoh, but was betrayed by those he held close to his heart. His benevolent reign and his life ended in assassination. Millennia pass Adrian King, that former ruler of the Ancient Egypt, has returned to life, if one can call being a vampire living as a ritual brought him back from the dead. He struggles to contain his desire to become a blood drinker even as his present kingdom is vastly different from the Nile Empire he ruled over as instead he owns the Royal Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.---------------------- Egyptologist Christine Day is stunned with how authentic to the minute detail the Royal Palace emulates an Ancient Egypt palace. Adrian notices her and realizes she is the Beautiful One haunting his recent dreams. He desires her and feels obligated to tell the woman he believes is his soulmate the truth about his previous life. However, those who once killed Adrian the Pharaoh are also awake with an obsession to assassinate him again.---------------------- NIGHT LIFE is a superb second chance at life vampiric romance starring two wonderful protagonists who readers will adore and root for as they battle some evil adversaries. The story line is action-packed with the historical tidbits interwoven into the plot so cleverly and diligently that the audience will believe Adrian was indeed once a pharaoh. The irony of the come down from a major empire to ruling a Vegas hotel aside, fans of the sub-genre will appreciate this fine paranormal romantic suspense though the vampire elements seem less critical to Elizabeth Guest¿s fine tale than most of the sub-genre entries.............

I enjoy books on Egypt and vampires, so I thought this would be the perfect romance - boy, was I wrong. I know romance novels aren't exactly literary genius, but this was worse than the average fare. The plot is weak and fuzzy, the characters are uninteresting, and some of the gushing purple prose had me in fits of giggles. Parts of it left me confused, and I felt as if I'd been thrown into the story halfway through. I only continued reading because I was on a plane with nothing else to do!

I just finished this one- awful start, and not much better finish. Way too much fill in, not enough heat, and the history aspect was not always well handled. No good magic or fun in this one. It is trying to be a serious paranormal, almost a gothis and fails there too.
