Miss Shayne makes a welcome return as the Queen of the vamp romance after a dissapointing dip with her last two novels. This story revolves around the most famous (if not the most powerfull) vampire of them all, Dracula and Tempest'stormy' jones.
After waiting five hundred years for his lost love Elizabeta to return to him after she killed herself thinking that vlad has been distroyed. The time has come to ressurect her, unfortunately to do this she must take over anothers body. This unwanted task falls to her spiritual decendant Tempest. This is the most interesting aspect of the book as the two soul battle it out for dominance in the one body. And the dillemma that Vlad faces knowing tht one has to perish to save the other. Vlad is everything that He should be, Imposing, powerfull with a very dark attraction. The tension that is created between the main characters is electrifying, and knowing that vlad may be the cause of her ultimate demise yet loving him anyway is heartbraking to read and suprisingly sets tempest up as a very srong woman. The whole story culminates in an ending that has it all in my opinion. A breathtaking, thoughtfull and heartrending story that restores my faith in the romantic novel.
