Gabriel has lived in darkness for over 300 years. His loneliness seems unending until he finds a fragile beauty locked away in an orphanage.
Sara has always been alone and it seems she will always be so until the night she is visited by a mysterious man. He is beyond her dreams but his eyes are filled with pain.
Together they banish the loneliness that has tormented them both, but Gabriel keeps many secrets and Sara feels she must know them to understand her new love.
Amanda Ashley has created a wonderfully memoriable book. I have enjoyed all of her Vampire books because the Vampire is not an evil being who kills for pleasure as well as need. Her vampire heros are all tortured souls that have consciences. Gabriel is that vampire.
Although not the best vampire romance I've read - and I have read alot! - it kept my attention (I read it in one sitting) - and the story was sweet. The vampire - a tortured soul looking for the one woman who will see him as a man and not a vampire - who will ease his loneliness. The book did have a little twist in it that added to the story. It was a good read and I recommend it if you are looking for a quick and sweet read this summer!!!
Vampire romance about a lonely vampire searching for the one woman who could love him.
A fun book to take on vacation and read in the plane. A good way to loose yourself for a few hours and forget your problems.
One of the earlier vampire romances, it's enjoyable, but lacks originality.
not much of a plot. More of a love story with an incidental vampire subplot.
A creature doomed to wander the earth in eternal darkness, he searched the ages for someone to share the endless night of his existance. An angel of purity and sunlight, she feared the mysterious stranger.
Although this book initially seems to be the typical suffering, angst-ridden vampire meets and falls in love with innocent girl story... this book has some unusual twists that make it different from most vampire novels.
The vampire really truly does try to resist his need for the girl. Allowing her to develop a fulfilled life of her own before claiming her. This makes her choices even more meaningful in that she gave so much up to be with him.
This is the only vampire book where the vampire actually lives with his mortal wife through her mortal life and death. Where she ages normally and dies while he remains "forever youthful" yet he loves her to the end. Most stories give this as only an option that is just not acceptable to most vampires and often not acceptable to their loves as well. Again, evidence that the characters in this book are stronger than most. She holds to her wish to remain mortal and her respects that.
The final twist is one I will leave for the reader to discover as I have spoiled enough of the plot!
One of Amanda Ashley's better works. I recommend it to anyone who loves romance, historical, modern and vampire types.
I have always liked Amanda Ashley and this book is just another in her long list of well written books.
