Pia Thomason is on a singles tour of Europe to console herself as she approaches her fortieth birthday. During a visit to Iceland she finds herself in the middle of some very strange events, including a woman being murdered in Pia's hotel bathroom, someone who wants to marry her, reports of a strange cult and more. When Pia finds herself given an unexpected responsibility she has to try to work out what's going on - with the help of two rather handsome men at the same time. But as she begins to learn that there are Vampires around, as well as those trying to kill them, she has to choose her side and to fulfil her unexpected new role.

There's plenty going on in this book which meant at times that it was difficult to follow. The author doesn't spend much time on characterisation, she just moves the plot along in leaps and bounds. The setting of Iceland had great potential which was sadly not very well realised and I didn't get much of a sense of that country through the book. This book is part of a series which became apparent at the end when not every aspect of the plot was wrapped up. However the book was enjoyable and Pia, despite being exasperating at times, was also an appealing heroine at others.

If you are looking for a deep, dark, philosophical book on vampires, don't buy this one. However, if you're looking for a fun, rollercoaster ride with lots of twists and turns then this is the right book for you. Lots of steamy stuff and a new angle on vampires and their "Beloveds" await you.

The latest in the series of the Dark Ones, and the women destined to be their Beloveds, the ones who can redeem their souls.
Pia is nearing 40, and on a singles tour of Europe. She is mistaken for the reaper (who can usher souls to the afterlife) of a strange religious group, then the real one is found dead in her bathroom, sending her on the run and straight into the arms of TWO Dark Ones, who are mortal enemies of this religious group.
She's the Beloved of one, but which?
Who can she trust?
And what is she supposed to do with all these ghosts she's collecting before she can help them go to the afterlife?
This is a "first of two" in Pia's story, so we're left wondering how she'll work things out with "her" vampire

Good fun but not serious fiction. Some of the racy parts are very well written.
