"a captivating tale of love, mystery and danger"
Portia Cabot has never told anyone what happened in the
crypt. What did it matter since the cursed life she saved
had left town to search for his soul.
Julian Kane has never forgotten his "Bright Eyes." He
left her because being a vampire he could offer her
nothing but regret.
It is five years later when the two meet, again. There
have been horrible murders where the women are left
drained of blood. Portia fears that Julian has embraced
his dark side, and yet she finds that she doesn't fear
him. If anything, her childish infatuation has turned
into something more meaningful. Julian thought to forget
Portia, but seeing, talking, and touching her proves that
he not only lost his soul, but his heart as well.
Ms. Medeiros has written a captivating tale of love,
mystery and danger. Portia is truly a match for the
dangerous Julian Kane. She proves it with her wit, and
courage to challenge him to be the man that he is capable
of being. He may be a creature of the night, but honor
means everything even if it will ensure his damnation.
This is the first novel I have read of Ms. Medeiros.
Obviously, this is part of a series of vampire tales, but
I had no trouble starting in the middle of it all. The
author is good about referring to previous adventures
making me want to go back and read their stories. I truly
enjoyed this fast-paced tale, as I'm sure others will
