This book got me from the first page. It's set in "Jack the Ripper"'s London with a Vampire hunter, his younger sister-in-law who is in love with his Vampire brother. It's a very fast moving story - not a big plot, but big enough for a quick read. I really enjoyed it.

You need to have read 'After Midnight' before reading this book. They are both good reads.

this is a great vampire novel with a great twist. This is a must read for all romance lovers! Placed in victorian England this book made me cry, laugh, and kept me on the edge of my seat. It was so good I read it in one sitting!

I really loved this book, but I would recommend reading After Midnight first, because you will see how Julian and Portia first met. You will also understand what led up to the things that are going to occur in this book.
You should take the time to read them both in order, if not I believe The Vampire who loves me gives you enough of the back story to satisfy you.

I enjoyed this read but you really should read book #1 first or you are missing alot of backround. This book is set 6years after the first. I enjoyed both very much! They are exciting, romantic and funny! Enjoy! Book #1 in this series is titled "After Midnight".

I am usually a huge fan Teresa Medeiros, so I was sorely disappointed when I tried to read this book. It was so bad that I couldn't make through the first two chapters try as I might. I actually went back and checked the title page and cover to make sure it was a Medeiros book. IMHO this book did not have the feel of her work and there wasn't one single character in the story that I cared about.

Definitely not Ms. Medeiros' best work.

This book was boring. The characters did not interest me, the historical aspects were cheesy, and the love scenes were not at all steamy. It was only a fast read because the font is so large.

I felt like it picked up speed as it went along. Kept me interested enough to stay up all night reading it several times. This is one of those books that is more than a few pages and the chapters leaving you hanging so you have to start the next one. Isn't gorey to the extreme and has a little spice.

I enjoyed After Midnight and wanted to see what happened to the brother. Medeiros seems to include just the right touch of steamy romance. I liked the idea that a Vampire could reclaim their soul and become mortal again. It was a quick read but that is good because you don't want to put it down.

this book to be read after "After Midnight" This sister is much stronger and can take on any man. Again I like this old fashion vampire romance set in the 1800's and the two brothers and three sisters can bet all odds together. Good and easy read. Again total opposite of Hamilton and Kenyon books. But Sherrilyn Kenyon quote about this author on this book "one of my all-time favorite athors.....An enchanted tale guaranteed to touch your heart". My thoughts exactly!

Not great.
It would help to read After Midnight, the first book in the series, before this story as it gives a lot of the back story between the main characters.

I enjoyed book 1 enough to read this but was disappointed in this story. The pacing was wrong for me and I found the "mystery" boring. The whole thing just felt cheesy and pandering to vampire/romance/historical fans rather than an honest exploration of any of those genres.

I won't read another from this series.

I thoroughly loved this story, the characters drew me right into their story. It had the type of wit that I really enjoy so it kept the story moving right along. A surprisingly quick read that I was sorry to have it end. BTW I have not read the Kane trilogy #1 yet but to me it didn't matter, of course I will be reading that soon.

This is a fun, light read about a Victorian-era woman who, for five years, has been in love with a man who just happens to be a vampire. Their banter is quick-witted, Portia (the female protagonist) is a strong and intelligent young woman, and Julian (the male protagonist) is sexy, smart, and, of course, gorgeous. Medeiros does offer some plot twists and the pacing of the story's quite effective, but it *is* a light read. While it's a paranormal romance, it emphasizes more the romance and not so much the paranormality. In other words, it lacks the kind of depth you'd find in an Angela Knight or Kim Harrison book.

This is the initial entry of a vampire series which is more focused on the romance than bloodletting, but there's no lack of hemoglobin being dished up.
From back cover: Julian Kane is back in town. Once, as a girl of seventeen, beautiful, headstrong Portia Cabot saved the cursed life of the dashing vampire Julian Kane  who marked her forever, then left to go in search of his soul. He returns five years later to find the enchanting young girl he left behind grown into a bewitching woman with a woman's heart... and a woman's desires.
Portia quickly discovers that Julian's seductive and forbidden kiss can still make her crave the night... and his touch. But the Julian who has returned to London is not the vampire she remembers. His fruitless pursuit of his stolen mortality has reduced him to drunken debauchery. And a recent spate of murders makes Portia fear that the man she has always adored may truly be a monster.
Julian knows he must drive Portia away  but his passion and hunger for her grow more irresistible every time they touch. For years he has fought the temptation to embrace his dark gifts, never realizing that Portia's love may give him the most dangerous gift of all... a reason to live.

I read this in about 3hrs it was that good. I happen to be a fan of Teresa's writing well now more so then ever. Parts of this held humor and of course the romance. XXX scenes weren't over detailed and drawn out to the point of boring like some authors. I really enjoyed this.
