Sebastian Young must find a way to help his brother Rhys when he breaks his one rule and saves the life of a mortal woman, which leads to a sensual encounter that makes him forget that he is a vampire. Reprint.
First of all, the character development is quite weak. Neither Rhys nor Jane has anything that is particularly special about their character. And because of this, it gets very difficult to see why they have fallen for each other so "deeply," as the story suggests. And it is also difficult to see how "deep" their love was for each other, as there really are no significant events in the story to show it to the reader, other than when Christian, Rhy's brother, attacks Jane.
In addition, the storyline is quite weak. Ms. Love was not able to build enough suspense for the climax of the story. There were many times throughout the book when I thought, "ok, something should be happening," but then nothing does. And the 2 love birds just went about doing the deed again and again. So when Christian finally makes his move, I was already yawning.
In short, this book is weak on both character and plot development. It wouldn't keep me turning the pages. What it did kept me doing was looking at how many pages are left in the book, and thinking of which book to read next.
2 stars for this book for that it wasn't so bad that I had to put it down, and because I am still somewhat interested in the two other brothers' stories. Although, those books has just been moved to my low priority list.
This book had just the right mix of lovable characters, romance, action, and suspense. You get a great explanation and development of the main characters Rhys and Jane, and get to know them well throughout the story. The secondary characters are mixed in as to not steal the spot light but to enhance perfectly. We get a small background for each brother to set us up for their books.
The plot and storyline was fun and very entertaining. There are many laugh out loud parts as well as those that just make you want to cry because they are so sweet and romantic.
I would recommend this book to any vampire romance fan. I am looking forward to reading the other brothers' stories as well.
Rhys was a regency viscount in Britain two hundred years ago when he & his 2 brothers were transformed into vampires by a bloodthirsty, horny, evil vampiress. Out of jealousy she killed their little sister, and out of revenge Rhys slowly drove her insane, literally. The story would have ended there...had the middle brother not already been in love with the deranged vampiress.
Fast forward to Christmas eve in present day New York City where the now exceptionally broody Rhys & his youngest brother the adorable Sebastion own & live above Carfax Abbey, their nightclub for vamps. Rhys steps out to a seedy bar for a holiday feast on a dirtbag when Jane steps into his life ( or afterlife?) and also into danger. Being the lead alpha male that he is, Rhys rescues her only to be attacked by his owm brother, Christian. Lilah , the evil vampiress, has just died for good and in an emotional rage Christian seeks to destroy his brother.
Sebastion manages to save both Rhys & Jane and tosss them in bed together to heal. When Rhys comes to he is a vampire with amnesia ( how soap opera)!! He believes that it's two hundred years ago and Jane is his fiance. He also forgets the important matter of being a vampire! Sebastion is forced to cover up from both his brother and Jane as he scemes to get them together. Can Jane teach Rhys to accept himself and love again before Christian snacks on them again?
