This is a different sort of vampire tale. It takes place in the 1800’s in Venice. You also get a very different sort of vampire as well, or I should say, vampyre. I enjoyed the unique twist on the everyday vampire tale. The vampires are still as sexy as sin though. There are definitely a lot of sparks flying between Isabella and Raphael, even after she discovers he’s a vampyre. This is a very good blend of historical romance and paranormal erotica. You may have to take a cold shower after reading this.
Venice, early 1800s
Isabella Tenderini, a wealthy merchant's widow rescues a stranger from drowning in one of Venice's canals. And how does the man repay her selfless act? By kissing her - her, a respectable woman.
Not only is Raphael di Santori grateful for his life being saved, he would also like to thank his rescuer very intimately - more intimately than decorum allows. But then, Raphael has never been one to play by the rules - as a vampire he doesn't have to.
