Finally, Feehan has written a Carpathian book whose heroine is moderately full-figured and who is beyond the age of 23. Antonietta is a 37 world reknowed blind concert pianist who lives in an old family castle with an assortment of relatives. Her lifemate is Byron who is drawn to her music, spending many nights with her while she plays for him. Unlike the other Carpathaian novels, he is not a hunter but a master jeweler, able to create exquisite jewelry out of gems, gold and silver. The story is well plotted with all the family characters' interactions as well as a mystery as to who was trying to kill off members of the family. Antoinetta is a refreshing character. Byron is like many of the other Carpathian males except he doesn't hunt. Well worth reading!
This was one of my favorite in the series. The story is sweet and compelling; the heroine is strong and unique. I loved this one, read it twice. I love the whole series, but this one is definitely tops!
Great book! I loved Byron when we first met him and was anxious to read his story and I wasn't disappointed. Intricate plot, lots of characters, but a great read.
