"An enticing supernatural love story"
Analisa Mathews knows that it is just a matter of a
short time before she joins her family in death. The
disease has left her weak and the ailing woman welcomes her
demise until the strange doctor visits her and gives her a
concoction. Her regular physician Dr. Martinson is shocked
to see Analisa begin to recover her health. To Analisa's
surprise Martinson cannot even see her enigmatic medical
visitor that she observes in plain sight.
After leaving the hospital fully and miraculously
recovered, Analisa learns the identity of her benefactor,
Lord Alesandro de Avallone. She moves into his castle
based on his note that she is welcome there while he is
away. Analisa soon perceives the true identity of her
benevolent host and falls in love with him in spite of
knowing he is a vampire. He returns her feelings, but has
placed her in danger from a deadly enemy.
Though the good vs. evil is over-used, fans of vampire
romances will want to read MIDNIGHT EMBRACE. The story
line contains two wonderful lead protagonists and an
enlightening support cast especially Alesandro's servants
that enable the audience to better understand the era and
the starring duet. Amanda Ashley provides her fans with an
enticing supernatural love story.

ANALISA . . .
He whispered her name, and it echoed back to him on the
wings of the night. One kiss, he thought, one kiss would do
no harm. She was so young, so alive. She radiated warmth
and goodness, chasing the coldness from his being,
banishing the loneliness from his soul. Four centuries of
prowling the shadows had brought him few pleasures, but the
nearness of her soft lips, her warm throat, promised
sweetness beyond imagining. She had wandered unchaperoned
to the moonlit tomb where he took refuge by day, little
suspecting that with his eyes alone he could mesmerize her,
compel her to do his bidding. Yet he would not take her
life's blood by force or trickery. He would have it as a
gift, freely given, and in exchange, he would make her
wildest dreams come true.
