"Sarah's whole-hearted kindness and goodness rescues Julien"

Young and beautiful Sarah Ashton is determined to fight to keep her family home. However, she soon learns it will not be easy as legal documents are missing that proves her rightful ownership. Her life has never been the same since an ordeal in Sienna, which dwells in her subconscious; making her wonder if she is as "bad" as her friend Corina.

The mysterious and dynamic Julien Davinoff holds his own council, obtaining the papers to make him the legal owner of what Sarah claims is rightfully hers. Shrouded in a natural darkness, he becomes the obsession of Corina, which nearly becomes his downfall.

However, Sarah's whole-hearted kindness and goodness, rescues Davinoff from a near death experience and she devotes herself to helping him overcome the perverse situation. And in doing so, discovers the truth about him and what lurks inside him. In spite of her fright, she is determined to save him and in doing so falls in love with a man that is surely not truly human.

Susan Squires paves her way into a popular paranormal genre with this vexing vampire tale. Giving her breed of vampires a somewhat different angle, the Companion is sure to catch on with readers that enjoy this intense theme of blood dependents. Sacrament delivers a passionate "turning" scene that was satisfying.

What if the man you loved was a vampire? How would you find the courage to embrace the darkness? Sarah Ashton, Lady Clevancy, is sure she is a very ordinary person in a very ordinary Regency England. When her life is invaded by a mysterious stranger, the long lost owner of the ruined abbey adjacent to her ancestral lands now accused of serial murder, she should be appalled, rather than fascinated. But she finds herself saving the devil himself from danger, and falling in love in the process. Her love will lead her across Europe, to the edge of eternity.
