Book Description

“The moment I saw Ben I knew I would die. There are things about his kind I do not know. This frightens me. Whispers of what these creatures really are is one thing, but the reality of what I chose to become? That is something else entirely.”

Would you become a monster to be with the man you loved? Lee sees Ben and knows he is different. Transfixed by his dark, quixotic character, she leaves behind the life she knew and enters a world of vampires. Though their love is pure, their passion fierce, a growing darkness threatens to tear them apart.

More About the Author

'My female characters are dear to me. I strive to allow them their strength and their innate femininity. As for loyalty to their emotional, romantic hearts and their sense of social responsibility and destiny, I see no need to sacrifice one for the other. Women wield an intoxicating power. It goes beyond physical prettiness to the beauty of the whole. Without the poetry of the mind and heart the body becomes a useless thing. I want my female characters to be brave, daring, and bold. I wish for their minds to be as relevant and celebrated as their bodies.'
~Penelope Fletcher, 2014

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed 17 July 2012
By SMoakes
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Honestly, I found this book very hard to read in the beginning because it is written using stream-of-consciousness and this took some getting used too, it wasn't until I had read at least two chapters that I was able to make a real connection with her and that was only because Lee is not a stereotypical 'perfect' girl. She isn't supermodel skinny or extremely tall, she is completely average and she's okay with that because she knows not everyone in the world is 'perfect'. I have to admit that this is one of the only redeeming qualities of the book.

I enjoyed being in her world but can't help but be disappointed with how quickly she accepts everything and how quickly the story came to its conclusion. It is very hard to believe that she would have fallen in love with Ben without ever having spoken to him and this is something that is repeated within this genre time and time again. It is also hard to make an emotional connection with the characters because their backstory's are almost non existent and for me when a character died it resulted in me having no reaction to the event and honestly not minding if they would be around for the rest of the series.

Penelope has written a story that is completely about the intensity of love and how everything else pales in comparison but by focusing solely on the theme, the characters and their stories have been overlooked and even though it is somewhat unrealistic at times this is a fresh take on the vampire genre and I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for the rest of the series and the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Die, my love 13 Sept. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Once I started reading this I could not put it down. A different and original take on this increasingly popular genre. I have already encouraged all my kindle friends to down load other very good novels by Penelope, and I will be strongly recommending this one as an entertaining read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Die, My Love 11 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book by Penelope Fletcher that I've read, the first one being Lunar Light, and I have to say that if I'd read this one first I wouldn't have read a second!

The style of writing in this book gave me a headache! The leading lady had no redeeming qualities and came across as self-centered and whiny. The only good thing about her, in my opinion, was the fact that she wasn't a "skinny minnie" and was described as actually having a figure.

I can't actually think of anything else to say except that I'm glad that I've finished it. So far, the score is:

Wendigo's - 1
Vampires - 0

I very much enjoyed this quick jaunt through the initial romance of the two main characters. There is plenty of scope here for many more stories and I look forward to them. Another wonderful story, Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original ideas 22 Jan. 2015
By Keren
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a lot and don't come across original ideas very often, so when I do I sit up and take note. I wasn't sure about reading a stream-of-consciousness book at all but, like Ella Minnow Pea, the way that the book is written ties in with and underlines what is happening - and is never-the-less easy to read. I won't be adding this to my list on Amazon of original books only because of the sex and my list includes childrens books.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let-down... 17 Feb. 2012
By AyJay TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be blunt; I'm disappointed. I loved the first entry for THE BEAUTIFUL DAMNED, but the writing style is completely different and I couldn't get into it fully.

90% of the book is comprised of the heroine's scattered thoughts and observations, so it didn't work for me.
Also: I didn't buy the away she falls in love in the hero immediately - before she'd spoke to him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different from your average supernatural romance 2 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this so much because of the stream of consciousness narration. This style takes a while to get into but it is very raw, honest, and sexy. I loved that the female lead was not only geniunely strong and funny, but proud to be a sturdy woman with an appetite for carnal pleasure. It just read true. Ben is also an interesting take on the dark, brooding vampire lover.
