"What if the man of your dreams isn\'t a man?"

It is in 1800 when eight year old Angelina first met the vampire, though she was unaware of his true nature. It was a brief, but memorable meeting. She would not see him again for fifteen years.

It was Angelina's sixth season and many had given up on her finding a husband. Angelina would only marry for love and had not yet found a man she could give her heart to. Unfortunately, the man she compares all others to is one found only in her dreams--dreams she that she had for a time as a child and have now returned, but with a much more erotic tone. Then she meets Count Roman Ivanovich who has the eyes of the man of her dreams. Roman has waited for Angel in the sleep of his kind the past fifteen years. Now he is ready to claim her as his own, but only if she will come willingly. However, Roman is not the only one interested in Angel. The Hunter, the head of the Society to find vampires, is about. He notices Roman's attraction to Angel and devises a plan to use it to his own advantage.

This is a short, quick to develop story, with vampires that follow most of the customary rules. The hero of Moonlight Rendezvous with a Vampire enjoys being what he is. The heroine's acceptance of his true nature is refreshing. Some of the actions don't quite fit the time period, and the scenes are often short on descriptive detail. Nevertheless, you get a fairly good sense of Regency England. Over all, I really enjoyed this story and hope to see much more of Ms LaCroix's vampires.

Sexuality: Sparse, but fairly descriptive sensual scenes.
