5th sentence, 74th page: Emile and I are still debating that.
Little ever seems to stir in the sleepy woods of a small Vermont tonw, until a new owner takes over the exclusive local inn. He is centuries old and has traveled far and wide to find his queen – and now nothing will stop him from claiming her…
I do believe in love at first sight. Yet, I always find it a bit bleugh when I read about it. There is just something about it that feels kind of ridiculous when I read a story which features someone who falls stupid in love on first sight. Not sure why, since I did the same thing myself. Yet, the love at first sight in this kind of worked. Probably because although he fell in love pretty quickly, she took her time about it and didn’t just melt when she was told that Bastien loved her.
I still haven’t managed to buy any of the books in the Midnight series, but this has definitely inspired me to want to even more. There is something great about this version of vampires that makes me completely intrigued. Like the other stories which I’ve got on my shelves by Emma Holly. She just has such a unique, romantic spin on paranormal creatures that I don’t normally come across.
I can’t imagine being a vampire… I love being in the sun WAY too much. Yet, I love that this story features a woman who tends to be a bit of a night owl herself. Makes it a little less inconvenient when she is turned into a vampire against her will.
Lastly, I love that there is a great sense of karma in this story. After being left by her ex-husband and betrayed by her best friend… karma came full circle and gave me this great happiness when the story sadly ended.
