About the Author
Susan Squires earned a Masters degree in English literature from UCLA and, as a by-product, learned how much fun research of other times and places can be. Several trips to Suffolk and Norfolk in the east of Britain created a life-long love of that area and its history. Danish on one side, and married to a very Saxon husband, she became fascinated with that time in East Anglian Britain when two cultures married and created a new language and a new land. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Julian Davinoff, lays claim to Sarah Ashton's home. He already owns the ruined abbey adjacent to her land. Sarah, along with her friend Corina, is fascinated by this stranger who is suspected of murder in London. How Sarah risks all to rescue Julian not only from Corina but from himself gives us a story that is a little predictable in places but with enough twists and turns to keep you wanting to find out what happens.
Susan Squire gives us a new twist into how vampires become vampires
Her lead characters are extremely well drawn, though I really really want to just smack Corrine really HARD!!! Squires maintains the brooding darkness, the duality we find in ourselves, vampire or not, and the question of how far are we willing to go for love.
He is Julian Davinoff, the dark lord always in black, and he has come to claim Sarah's beloved and ancient home. She suspects he is so determined to gain possession of the family home that he has bribed to have the deed stolen so she cannot prove her claim.
From the first, despite the legal entanglement, Sarah is pulled toward this man, scare of him as much as she is fascinated by him.
Unfortunately for Sarah and Davinoff, Sarah's "friend' becomes suddenly obsessed with him as well, a friend already bordering on madness, a friend rumoured to have tastes for dark and evil for perversions, with the obsession pushing her into complete insanity. She will destroyed them both if not stopped.
Squires paints extremely complex characters, hardly stereotypical, in a moving story that will haunt you long after you put it down....
There is a dedication at the beginning of this book that mentions Georgette Heyer. Now if a keen reader of Heyer read this book expecting something similar they'd get rather a shock - although set in the Regency period the whole tone of this book is completely different. Of course a vampire book is, of necessity, not strictly historical but I did find myself irritated by one or two historical anachronisms - for example, our heroine is Lady Clevancy; who is her father? Presumably the Earl of Clevancy, but then she would be Lady Sarah, not Lady Clevancy; and when her father died, where was his heir, and we know she hasn't been married before - there's a lack of accuracy in English titles here. There are also some Americanisms in speech ("drug" for the past participle "dragged") and "gotten" and other common errors. But I liked the setting and particularly the detail of things like a journey on a mail coach from London to Bath (which took several days, unlike many authors' journeys from London to Gretna Green in 3 hours!) and on the food available in a house around Christmas time when foraging and travelling around Europe.Read more ›
