Book Description
Harlow Garrington is a twenty-six year old woman left alone in the world when her family perished in a tragic accident. She led a quiet life and lived in her books until a chance meeting brought Aiden into her life. He was smart, sexy, and chivalrous-- everything she wanted in a man. There was just one problem, he was also an eight hundred year old vampire.

Nearly a thousand years ago, vampires split into two factions. Those who chose to sacrifice their souls for immortality were pure evil, without a shred of humanity left. They existed to kill and terrify. Those turned by force, like Aiden, were able to retain some of their humanity and did not need to kill to survive.
My Thoughts
I liked the story line in this book, I was drawn to our Heroine Harlow, and her no nonsense attitude. There are no sparkly vampires here, these are the vampires you see in horror stories that keep you awake at night! and our Hero Aiden is truly a dashing Knight in shining armour.
The various acts that we are drawn into add to the mystery and intrigue of the story line, and keeps you on your toes as you aren't quite sure where the author is going to go next. From America, to Japan, to the highlands and back we truly are led on a wild ride.  I am looking forward to reading more of Harlow and Aidens' story.
