Brides of the Night is an anthology, two stories written by Maggie Shayne and Marilyn Tracy. It was very good and one I would highly recommend.
Twilight Vows written by Maggie Shayne was very good. In 1808, Donovan O'Roark was on the verge of death when he is given the Dark Gift. Immortality. From that moment on, he is now a vampire.
Rachel Sullivan has come back to her homeland. She is seeking to complete her thesis on the haunting tale surrounding Castle Dante. But there is another reason she has come back.
As a young girl, she had encountered Donovan O'Roark or if the tales are true, his ghost. She freely surrenderes her love to him. As she grew older, she believed that those encounters were nothing more than dreams. She is determined to prove that he isn't really there in the castle, awaiting her.
Yet, Rachel, discovers far more than what she initially is seeking. Brimming with danger and sensuality, this story is one you will enjoy.
Married By Dawn written by Marilyn Tracy was, also, very good. Pleasantly different, too. The High Council has sent out vampire Gavin Deveroux to silence a mortal that has issued out a challenge. He hears a laugh not just any laugh but one that ignites his dark desire. He does not know it, yet, but he has found his target.
Tara Michael's only sister had been murdered. Gavin Deveroux is believed to be the killer and she is determined to punish him. That is until she gazes at him. Her growing attraction for him is at odds with her need for revenge.
Yet, things are not as they appear to be. There is somone who is planning his own brand of revenge. This story is filled with menace, sensuality, love and danger. Highly recommended!!
This book has two vampire romances in it. One is "Twilight Vows" by Maggie Shayne and the other story is "Married by Dawn" by Marilyn Tracy. Both are very good. The Shayne story is part of her Wings in the Night series.
