"One of the best vampire stories by far"
Mira's people need the guardian "vampire" to protect them;
for his protection, they must sacrifice one of their
females. Once they enter the cave the vampire drains them
of their blood to the point of writhing up into
nothingness, or they simply beg for death. Mira is selected
to be the next sacrifice, she is scared, but she has
trained for this and she is determined to help her people.
While Mira is around Rillan she realizes he is just a
tortured soul, tired of being lonely. Slowly she starts
falling for him. Rillan begins to realize he has fallen for
her as well, but he refuses to show her his softer side, he
is afraid he will lose her. Can Mira make him see that she
truly cares for him?
Mira by Leighann Phoenix is one of the best books I
have read dealing with vampires, her story is amazing. And
I have to say at first I didn't know if I would like it,
but after reading the first few pages I fell in love. You
can guarantee I will be looking for more of her books!!!!

As a druid sacrifice to a vampiric assassin, Mira is sworn to remain
companion to the monster for the rest of her existence. She never
dreamed that she would find anything short of blood and tortured
death, when she walked blindly into the darkness that he existed in.
Finally meeting Rillan, Mira is forced to battle herself and her fears
as she attempts to fulfill her vows.
Rillan came to accept his existence as a necessary evil. In a
vindictive quest for revenge, he committed himself to tormented
darkness. He never dared to hope for someone like Mira. Now that the
monster has her, the man left in him can't bear to keep her.
