Alexandra Keller is Chicago’s most brilliant reconstructive surgeon. Michael Cyprien is New Orleans’ most reclusive millionaire-and in desperate need of Dr. Keller’s skills. In the heart of the Garden District, Alex encounters the extraordinary Cyprien, uncovering a love Alex is willing to embrace, even if she must sacrifice her heart and soul to do so.
This book was a slow read for me. It took me awhile to catch on to all the characters and to start actually caring about them. I loved the story when it was focused on the Darkyn’s, but when it came to all the priests and such, I was easy to get confused with all their talk and people.
There wasn’t alot of romance in this book. What romance there was, I couldn’t really care about it. This was more of a dark read than a regular vampire read. The author uses alot of words that had me scratching my head. French I believe. At time she would explain what was being said and at other times she didn’t.
This was the first in the series, and I am willing to try the next one. Hopefully I will have a better understanding now and will be able to figure it out faster. I loved the character of Phillipe the best and can’t wait to see his story if he has one. The heroines personality is what I liked the most about this book. Witty and smart mouth is what I like when dealing with a strong heroine.
A Good Book and Read! Perfect For Rainy Days
