An ode to Vlad...Because you are fierce as few othersBecause you are caring to your friends and your peopleBecause you are a protector amongst villainsAll that raw passion, sensuality and heat
You make me melt with just a touch, just a look or a simple wordThere is no other like youI bow to theeYou have my love, my heart, and even though you've found The One know that you will always be number one for me~LoveFrancesca
"Beautiful and diabolical. You make me impatient indeed to claim you." ~ Vlad
At the same time though, there was a tenderness and vulnerability to him that I always knew was there. He's been hurt, he's guarded himself. He's not an easy man to get close to and he lets Leila in. It was beautiful and sweet to watch him change for her and show her the attention, care and respect her always gave her. Always believing in her and not pushing her aside but wanting her to be better. Vlad can make Leila stronger and she can make him whole."I want to know what your end game is first." ~ LeilaAnother flash of teeth, this time showing his fangs. "To have you screaming my name within the hour." ~ Vlad
"You're not just versatile and complex - it's like you're a schizophrenic!" ~ LeilaAnd then there's the Night Huntress cast. Fun cameo appearances by Cat and Bones, as well as Mencheres and Kira. Bones is just too much sometimes and the banter between him and Vlad is comical. Yes, there's quite a bit of humor in this book as well.
Did I mention how perfect it was? OK good because in case you didn't realize it yet, you have to get this book because it will leave you breathless and aching for more. More story, more Vlad, just .... more!!!!!
"We are all more than the sum of our sins." ~ Vlad
"I' am so Googling 'Vlad Dracul' once this is all over," I stated. "Wikipedia knows more about his past than I do." ~ Leila*ARC provided by publisher
