First Published: 2007
Genre: paranormal romance
One month after she lost her husband, Victoria took to the streets of London.
Comments: This is a whirlwind of a read. We hit the ground running from the first page and keep going until the final pages. Victoria travels to Italy and must stop a powerful Vampire from gaining control of the souls of the dead. I have to say I enjoyed this even more than the first book. The romance part is done very well, there are a few sexy scenes but mostly the story focuses on the vampire part of the plot. I stayed up way past my bedtime two nights in a row reading this, each chapter ends in such suspense that I kept needing to read "just one more chapter". My favourite character in this series is Sebastian, he is so swoon-worthy (LOL). The shocking ending was such a surprise and I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series!
Since this series has been my very first exposure to the 'paranormal romance' genre, does anyone have any suggestions of other authors I might like? I'm not into romances in general but I've really enjoyed it mixed-up with the vampires and would love to try some more.
