"it sweeps you away"

Johanna Harker has always been teased about her name and her fascination with vampires. Ever since she read Bram Stoker's Dracula, people pointed out the similarity of her name and one of the characters of the book. She thought it a dream come true when the company she worked for sent her as a representative to Transylvania, the reputed home of the vampire.

Cristofor Dalakis has been visiting the beautiful Johanna since she turned eighteen on the nights of the full moon. Now that she was in Transylvania, he had to convince her that their love was and is real, not the stuff of dreams, and yes there really are vampires.

Beautifully done, and page after page of erotic prose. I love how the author made a play on the name of Harker, it gives you a chuckle to think about it. The scenes flow into one another without a hiccup, and are expertly drawn out. So much wish and fantasy ride the words in this story, it sweeps you away. She sets up the story very well to continue on with it, and I can hardly wait to read the next phase of this tale. This is definitely a tale to remember.

Johanna Harker's life changed drastically on her eighteenth birthday—she received a copy of Bram Stoker's Dracula, discovered her fascination with vampires, and experienced her first of many hot, erotic dreams featuring a tall, dark and mysterious man. For the next thirteen years, on the full moon, Johanna's dream lover appeared. Sometimes his lovemaking was playful and tender, other times passionate and raw.

When no flesh-and-blood man can compete with her dream lover, Johanna puts all her energy into her job and studying vampires. Then she is sent to the fabled Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania to meet her company's largest client, the mysterious and demanding Cristofor Dalakis.

Cristofor, the enigmatic and formidable patriarch of the Dalakis family, plans to use his every skill to seduce and possess Johanna. But Cristofor is harboring a dark family secret that will challenge all that Johanna has known and believed.
