Former aristocrat turned lowly vampire Devlin Dalcon gets by on his supernatural charm, swindling others for money and goods. When Devlin encounters bride-to-be Annabelle—another potential victim—he finds the tables have turned as he falls in love with her.
Review: The first thing that captured my attention was that this book was written from the man’s point of view. I really wanted a change and this seemed like a perfect way to shake things up a bit. This short story is related to Promise Me Series by Tara Fox Hall.
Devlin Dalcon is the main character and he drew me in like a moth to the flame. Devlin’s feelings for Annabelle were clear and powerful. I was envious of her from the start. The heroine Annabelle is not a character I admired right away. It was difficult for me to find what it was about her that was so special that Devlin was willing to risk so much. There were a few unexpected twists and I always enjoy those.
The story itself was beautiful and captivating. Having finished this short tale I am now compelled to find out the complete story and will be finding the rest of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing it told from the heroes’ perspective and I hope that I can find more books written from this viewpoint. Tara Fox Hall has used her amazing talent to compress a huge amount of content and passion into a wonderfully written short story. If you love a love story you need to read this.
Favorite Quote: “If I refused to go with you, what would you do?” she whispered.
“I’d stay here, and let the sun have me,” I said despondently. “Now that I’ve finally cared for a woman, I don’t see the point of continuing, unless you’re with me.”
