"a beautifully written romance"
When Julian found out what Dr. Cecelia Barnes was working
on, research on blood diseases, he knew he had to keep an
eye on her. He could tell how smart she was, and how her
eyes just caught you when you looked into hers made him
want to help her with this research. So Julian knew he had
to make a plan for him and his people's future and their
lives. He planned to seduce her, and try to get what
information she had to see how far she's gotten and what
she has found, and if they are endangered by what she has
found out. But that plan changes very fast, he goes to war
against his old Master because his old Master just wanted
Cecelia killed, because then she wouldn't be a danger to
them. But all Julian knows is he can't live without this
woman, she has become his light, his reason for living, so
he must keep her safe even from his own kind. The love and
passion between the two grows so intense and strong, more
than either ever thought they could feel for someone else.
But Julian lives in fear that if he tells her what he is,
that he will lose her, and he can't lose her. Can she
forgive him for lying to her so far? Will she see why he
did what he did and forgive him?
This was one of those vampire romances you can't put down
from the start. The way Julian started out feeling about
Cecelia was to seduce her to find out what information she
has. Being a vampire, him and his kind are worried about
what she will find and that it will endanger their future.
But after seeing and being with her, he knows he must have
this woman. When his old Master just wants her killed,
Julian must go against his own kind to keep the woman he
loves alive. But how will she feel about him when she finds
out that he is a vampire? This story was a beautifully
written romance that had my heart feeling warm. I look
forward to reading more by December Quinn.
