It’s been a rough couple of years for Cailey Kantor. Facing her first Christmas alone and bad financial news, she prays for an angel to fix her problems. Instead, a sadistic, sociopathic vampire, with the goal of starting a vampire war, attacks her and forces her to drink blood stolen from the Nosferatu Gabriel Blautsauger.

Gabe must complete Cailey’s turning or she will die. In doing so he risks losing his yet unfound soulmate. But something about the lovely mortal speaks to his heart. Once her transformation is complete, he and Cailey find themselves embroiled in a battle that could cost them all they hold dear.

Faced with lies, abduction, and betrayal Cailey wonders if the vampire she is falling fangs over heart for is in it for love or if she’s just a means to stop a war.


Review: I love when I get a book and it’s from a new author that I have never read before. I like to read books by authors that are new to me. I can’t wait to read something different and see how they bring their characters to life.

I loved reading about Cailey and Gabriel. The way that she was turned into a vampire isn’t the way I would want. She gets it made up to her though. I just got so into this book and I didn’t want to put it down. I connected with the characters and didn’t want to let them go.

The author did a great job with her research. All the technical blood stuff was a little over my head. I could just pretend that I knew what they were saying. That way I would look smarter. Maybe I will memorize some of it and freak some people out with my knowledge.

I liked the way that the story was written and I had a easy time keeping up with all the excitement. Even though Cailey and Gabriel bumped heads and didn’t always agree. I had some laughs because it was just funny. That’s the relationship that I have with my husband and I love it when I read a book that makes me think of that. I don’t feel so weird.

I really enjoyed the different languages in the book. When you cuss in Russian it really does sound exotic.  I enjoyed this book from the first time I picked it up until I had to put it down because I had reached the last page. I am hoping that this will become a series. I want to know more about Gabriel’s siblings and his father.

I just want to say that I recommend this book to anyone that loves vampires and loves a great love story with some exotic languages.
