The townsfolk of Moulton Bay said there was something otherworldly about Alexander Claybourne. Some people whispered that, with his dark arresting features and mesmerizing eyes, the seductive stranger looked every inch a vampire. They never guessed how near the truth they were – or that after more than two hundred years of resisting temptation, Claybourne had found a woman he had to possess.
Never one to be scared off by superstitious lore, Kara Crawford laughed at the local talk of creatures lurking in the dark. What harm could come of befriending the handsome stranger with the haunted look in his midnight eyes? No matter what shadowy secrets Alexander hid, Kara felt drawn to him, compelled to join him beneath the silver light of the moon, where they would share a love DEEPER THAN THE NIGHT.
I am a huge fan of Amanda Ashley. She writes more of the dark vampire than the sparkly vampire. This was one of her earlier books that I somehow had missed when reading her books. This one started out great. I loved the first chapter. I love how Kara’s younger sister goes looking for a vampire to save her sister, even though Gail herself is very young. That sets the book in motion. I liked the plot and the dark brooding vampire Alexander. What I didn’t like was Kara. To me, she came across as stupid and ditzy. I don’t know if they yanked out her brain during the coma or if she is just naturally clueless. I will say that this book was not like most of the authors vampire books. Even though I couldn’t stand Kara, I still enjoyed the story.
Perfect For Rainy Days From the Library!
Nice review! I hadn’t heard of this book before but I might check it out.
