"A mesmerizing supernatural romance"
Dayan, the lead guitarist for the Dark Troubadours,
mesmerizes his audience with his passionate playing that
has every female who watches him desire him. Still he
waits for one woman, his lifemate, to appear though he
begins to dread that he will never meet her. Still he
desperately needs her to refill his empty soul or cross to
the dark side.
At a gig in a bar he recognizes the one, but ironically
her human heart cannot see that this Carpathian is her
every reason for living live just like she is his. Dayan
meets composer Corrine Wentworth, who is a widow with a
heart condition and carrying her late husband's child that
when combined threatens her existence. She knows nothing
has been the same for her since a year ago, when her
spouse John was tested for his psychic abilities at The
Morrison Center for Psychic Research. Corrine has
telekinetic skills. She would want nothing more than to
surrender her life and soul to Dayan, but fears for him
and her unborn if she does for she knows those who killed
John are coming for her.
Though similar in many ways to several of her previous
Carpathian-human tales, Christine Feehan provides several
character traits to the female lead that add suspense.
Thus the brisk story line feels almost like this is the
first novel in the long running series as Corrine
struggles with health issues, a pregnancy, and the threat
to her beloved, herself, and her unborn. DARK MELODY
provides the right tune for fans of the author and anyone
who enjoys a strong supernatural romance.
