 The main character, Avril, has not dated for quite a while because of her bad reputation with men, annoyingly for her she’s overwhelmingly attracted to her best friend’s brother in law, the vampire, Aiston.

Aiston is a 700 year old vampire who has never been in a relationship, he too finds himself attracted to Avril, but he’s having a hard time convincing her that he can be a one woman man. Avril struggles to put the past to rest and trust that Aiston can settle down and never break her heart.

I really liked this book. It reminded me of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s style of writing, even though the two writers have totally different vampire concepts. The book features mainly around the two main characters, but it doesn’t get boring at all. The sex scenes were tasteful and enjoyable and left you eagerly awaiting the next. S K Yule really puts you in the picture with her description and you easily connect with the characters in the emotional scenes. Lots of new and interesting vampire concepts too, which is always good. I read this book in one sitting and I will definitely be seeking out more of SK Yule’s work. This book really deserved the four out of five and is worth a read.
