Book Review

A fascinating story about a blind vampire and his new human lover. Neither of them is looking for "the One", but when they meet, the attraction is immediate. They get to know each other in a series of very physical encounters, and the tone of the story is an appropriate mix between sensual and very hot.

Kieran is a bit of a player, he likes to explore and try different things. This curiosity comes in handy with Lucien, as it means he is open to the new and different. Mostly, he is just overwhelmed by Lucien's skill as a lover though, and by the time Lucien makes his potentially scary revelations, Kieran is beyond caring about the details – he has fallen for who Lucien is.

Lucien has been waiting for a long time to meet someone like Kieran, but he needs to be careful about revealing too much too soon. Not because he isn't sure about wanting Kieran, but because he's afraid of scaring the human away. Lucien has been burnt in the past as well, and that has made him more careful. He may be a powerful vampire, but he is blind and emotionally vulnerable as well.

I really liked the characters; Kieran was hesitant and a little scared at first but ready to follow his lover. Lucien is a "gentle" vampire who wants to have a willing companion, so there is none of the violence of many of the vampire stories I have read. If you like your vampires sensual and seductive, if you enjoy stories with lots of heat, and if you're looking for a short, entertaining read, you will probably like this short novella.
