“A colorful and hauntingly beautiful tale of otherworldly love . . . destined to become a classic!”—Affaire de Coeur
“Incredible, spellbinding reading!” —Rendezvous

A DARK CURSE

Miss Arabella Howland is content to forgo the London marriage mill to assist her father in his research, especially when it comes to his intriguing patient, Louis Radman. But it’s not long before Bella’s curiosity alerts her to the danger of her father’s work . . . and to the fact that Louis is not who or what he seems.

A BRIGHT PROMISE

After centuries struggling with his vile existence, Louis Radman will soon be free of his affliction, thanks to his very capable physician. Unfortunately, his heart is less secure around the man’s tempting daughter. His yearning to walk in the light once more is complicated by his desire for the delightful Bella, who is as intelligent as she is fearless. But if history has taught him anything, it’s not to tempt fate.

AN UNFORGIVING PAST

Still, happiness has a price and Louis is soon reminded that mortality comes with unfortunate limitations. To protect his new bride, he must face the demons from his past who wish to pull him back into their vampiric fold.
Yet, if he’s forced to return to his midnight world, will he lose his beloved Bella forever?


Review:
Arabella isn’t interested in the marriage mart but loves aiding her physician father with his medical research. She is particularly interested in his mysterious patient, Louis Radman. Radman is a handsome, reclusive, dark nobleman. Dr. Howland refuses to tell Arabella any details about his treatment for Radman. Arabella is startled one night when she greets Radman in her father’s absence. He is gaunt and pale and she doesn’t know how to help him. But even with her innocence, she is strangely drawn to Radman in a sensual fog.

Louis Radman is sick of his dark life with its evil compulsions. He has sought the help of Dr Howland seeking medical treatment to return him to a human state, including mortality. Louis is surprised by his attraction to Arabella. He knows he should stay away until the treatment is successful but he finds it hard to resist her. He also isn’t willing to let the Dr.’s ambitious assistant put Arabella into a compromising position.

Just as Louis appears to be on the verge of success some old ‘friends’ appear seeking revenge for past hurts. Louis knows he will have to face his fiercest enemies in order to protect Arabella.

I enjoyed the different perspective of this story with its initial hopeful tone. I appreciated the action and danger and when things turned dark I was fully engaged wanting to know what would happen. Having just read a more erotic vampire story, I was glad to choose this title as it appeared to be less raw. There is wonderful chemistry between Arabella and Radman and their relationship heats up in sensuality but never becomes truly graphic. This story wraps with a few surprises and the other two books look like they would be engaging as well.

I received this title for Series Tour through Novel Book Tours.

A DARK DECEPTION

When her reclusive neighbor Louis Radcliffe rescues her from an attack, Cassie finds her vow of independence shaken by the strong attraction between them. It’s an attraction Louis denies, even as the invalid grandmother he cares for pushes to bring them together—for reasons that will break both their hearts.

AN INEVITABLE SACRIFICE

Determined to hide his secrets from her, Louis soon becomes the cornerstone of Cassie’s investigation. He can’t allow her stubbornness to place her life—and his immortal soul—in danger. But as much as he tries to keep her safe in his arms, it soon becomes evident that Cassie’s become a target. And Louis has no choice but to find out if their love is strong enough to withstand the truth . . .
