Overview

The Lost Centurion by Monica La Porta

Marcus has sworn to avenge his wife's death-even if it takes an eternity to hunt down the vampire who murdered her. Once a Roman Centurion, Marcus is now immortal and, for the past two thousand years, impervious to human emotions. Until the night he rescues Diana...
Diana knew nothing of the paranormal world until her transformation into a vampling, a newborn vampire entirely reliant for survival upon the distant and seemingly emotionless Centurion, who found her in the throes of changing. Her protector turned her without her consent, but at his untimely death, she becomes the distant and cold immortal's responsibility.
The entire vampire community is determined to kill Marcus as he protects one of their own. While Marcus and Diana travel the Italian countryside, being chased by their enemies, Marcus must choose between avenging his dead wife or saving Diana from the same vampire who ruined his life. Will the power of love win over his desire for revenge? Bewitched by the Amalfi moon, he soon discovers life might still surprise him.

Well plotted out and a different take on the vampire fascination we have been experiencing, I found the Roman history fascination and though there were a few editorial hiccups, not so many as to distract me from the story. A good read

This story was excellently written ! It was a fresh new take on paranormal romances without heavy drippy lovey dove nonsense. It has a mesmerizing storyline plots and underplots of course a bit of passion and not just intimacy here. The passion she wrote into everything their lives the details the struggles and fights sigh...It felt like i was there, I loved it . I will be reading her books from now on a avid fan she has made.

I read several chapters hoping the storyline would go somewhere or the characters would grab my attention, sadly it never happened. I couldn't finish it, it lacked development and an interesting plot. The synopsis was the best part.

The story was okay. While I enjoyed the descriptions of Rome, they tended to overshadow Diana and Marcus. The actual conflict doesn't occur until the last quarter of the book, but slow pacing aside, I liked the premise of the story enough to continue reading the series.

I absolutely loved this book, It's got an awesome allure about it. I couldn't put it down until I was done with it. It took me 9 hours to read. I loved that the Centurion fell in love with a Vampire. I would love to read more like this. Thank You for Writing it..... Tina Minger from Galax, VA.

Of course as romance readers we just eat up those epic love stories and this book delivers in spades! This writer skillfully leads you down this journey, constantly twisting and turning the storyline so that things are never as they seem. I am so thoroughly pleased I partook of this journey! My emotions were soaring on this roller coaster and I never once thought to come off the ride before this amazing writer chose to release me. A book truly worth reading!

This was a good story line. I had a bit of trouble following a time or two and had to keep rereading.

I don't k n ow if it was because the story was so choppy or if was incomplete.

I really enjoyed this book and it's new take on vampires. Marcus was so sweet to Diana the entire book, I loved it. Two reasons I gave it 4 stars. One: the writing was pretty jumpy within scenes, which made it hard to follow. Two: I'm not familiar with Roman architecture or the landscape and roadways of Rome so all of those types of descriptions were worthless to me. Besides that, it was really enjoyable and kept me interested until the end!

While the story started out a little slow for me, I was eventually swept away. I loved the mix of romance, action and history, although like most stories I believe the relationship developed too quickly. All in all, I highly suggest getting your own copy and diving into Rome.
