"Leonore must find Viscount St. Vire's secret and conquer it with love"

This is a Regency romance and is a sweet story for a vampire tale. Viscount St. Vire made the mistake of allowing Lady Mercia in his life and is now a vampire. After 80 years of extensive study, he now thinks he has found the way to return to being human. He needs a woman to freely love him and his solicitor has narrowed his choices for him. When he finds himself gambling with the father of one of his possible brides, he uses the chance to win a wife. Now he has to woo her. 

Leonore has been embarrassed by her father all her life. Now she is sold to cover his gambling debts. When she meets St. Vire, she is pleasantly surprised. Even more, she is surprised that he is going to the trouble to woo her and be kind to her younger sister. Leonore knows there is a secret he is keeping and believes it is that he has a fatal illness. She finds herself in love with him. When Lady Mercia shows up in London and holding St. Vire's attentions, Lenore's jealousy and sorrow test her love. She finally realizes that St. Vire is trying to protect her from Mercia and he admits that he is a vampire. I will not tell you how they reach their HEA, but it was a nice read and I would recommend this book.

Being a vampire is okay--you get to stay up all night, women find you irresistable, you're strong, fast, and magic is yours for the taking. But Nicholas, Viscount St. Vire finds all of that means little in the face of impending insanity and the eventual deterioration of his senses. Only the the willing embrace of a virginal young woman can reverse his condition. Who better for his wife-to-be than the impoverished Leonore Farleigh, whose abusive father sells her to St. Vire to pay off gaming debts? Leonore agrees to marry him--how else is she going to save her sister and her mother from their poverty and pain? But she soon finds she's stepped into a marriage of inconvenience… and possible death.
