eh. Cheesy. There are lots of better vamp stories out there...try Laurell K. Hamilton, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison, Mary Janice Davidson, Charlaine Harris, even the 1st few Anne Rice books.

Fast read. Words floated right off the page. Kept my attention from page one to page 370. Did not see the twists and turns coming, very pleased that Mrs Medeiros had me fooled. Loved the relationship between Caroline and her sisters. Loved the instant chemistry between Caroline and Adrian. Not as much fluff as I expected, which I really appreciated. I'm not as much a romance reader as I am a vampire reader, so I really appreciated being spared the contrived and gag inducing romance dialogue that some romance books have.

This book is a 4 star book for me. The lack of five stars is because I'm a little disappointed in the revelations as the book is coming to a close. Not a fault of the book or the author, it's just for us die hard vampire enthusiasts, this one isn't what you think you're getting into. Not wanting to give anything away, I thought I was getting into a good sexy vampire story and it's not quite that (the vampire part not the sexy part... it has just the right amount of sexy) But I was pleasantly surprised with how Medeiros weaves the vampire into the story, but he does not take center stage in this book.

Vamp lovers and romance lovers alike it is my opinion that you'll love this book and the author. Definitely worthy of trading on PBS!

This is by far my favorite Teresa Medeiros book to date, and I love them all. Fun book with a vampire twist - keeps you guessing till the end. It's a Keeper!

Well, this book was really disappointing... The storyline sounds really promising from the back of the book:

The eldest and most sensible of the three Cabot siblings. Caroline is naturally concerned that her sister Vivienne has lately been keeping company with the infamous Adrian Kane, Viscount Trevalyan, the enigmatic nobleman whom most of the ton firmly believe is... a vampire!
Surely, it is nonsense. And yet...
The brooding gentleman inhabits a dark castle and is never seen in the daylight, embarking nightly on mysterious excursions to who knows where. And from the first moment Caroline encounters the handsome, hypnotically compelling viscount, she is shaken by a fevered desire for the man that border on the unnatural.
She must know Adrian's secrets! But each step that draws theinquisitive beauty deeper into the shadowy world pulls her closer to a sensuous surrender, for the power of his passion is impossible to resist. Is he man or monster, champion or villain? And will a yearning heart lead Caroline to disaster.... or to love?

But really I couldn't get past chapter four because the back ot he book throws us into the action and what is to come, and it sounds very modern and hip..... and actually reading it is another story. It is all prim and proper and no really involving scenes that I could see, and the charactes are not very relateable.
The book is just very hard to understand. And its not very likely I will read anything else in this series; I found four in this series. Its all just very BLAH.

Dracula and Northanger Abbey brought together into a historical romance novel. That was my impression throughout this book. To me, it was a tribute to the gothic novel, with the dark castle,complete with dungeon and mysterious hero, the great mystery to solve,vampires and a heroine who finds herself in the middle of all of it. It was quite an unusual book to read, very different from the traditional historical romances and different from most vampire books. I like that the heroine and the reader both find out the truth at the same time. The book keeps you guessing, is he a vampire, or isn't he? While the end does provide closure for most of the story, it nicely sets up what will be an intriguing story for their siblings. Overall, a great book I rate 4 stars. Can't wait to read the next one.
