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.
