Handsome and diligent Avrum Brenin should have died in the fire with his mother and older brother. Instead, he is saved by the powerful and wealthy immortal, Lord Henri. Placed under his care, Avrum shares in his world of endless splendors. He must do one thing in return—look after Haven, a human and Lord Henri's newest rescue.
The simple task proves to be more complicated than it seems. Haven is disobedient, ungrateful, and hostile, yet she is beautiful and mystifying at the same time. One night, when Avrum stumbles across Haven barely clothed and bound at the wrists, the world he has trusted in unravels before his eyes. He soon discovers that no one—from Lord Henri and Haven to his closest friend, Lysander—are who they seem to be.
Now faced with the truth, will Avrum choose to surrender to the man who rescued him, or will he have the courage to save the woman who captivated him?
Angie J's Review:
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
So why did I read this ya ask? Well, I am a closet historical reader buff thanks to a friend. I am also a freak about paranormal novels soooo a historical paranormal romance...ding ding ding...winner!!
I will admit I was a bit worried because historical romance + Paranormal = WEIRD but this book was great!!!! The story is about Avrum who is Lord Henri's bitch basically. I mean he does everything Lord Henri tells him because his master is a great guy...or so he thinks. Avrum's bff is Lysansder who has alot of secrets going on through the novel. One biggie is revealed at the end of the novel and I sure didn't see it coming. Well Lord Henri is such an "awesome" vampire, he has "saved" Haven from poverty to be his meal. He also kinda is bat shit crazy and thinks she is his lost love of 3 centuries ago. Anywho, Avrum finds he is falling for Haven and she him but they both think they are crazy. I mean how can he do this to Lord Henri who has done so much for him...Henri raised him like a father. Haven is like "Stockholm syndrome" here. He is a vamp like Henri. I can't love Avrum. Well the two end up having some "special time" together after Avrum realized the Douche Bag that Henri is. They then hatch a plan to escape forever.
I don'ts want to give much more away about the story but I really enjoyed the book. I started it and finished it in a day. I will say this book has alot of world building and can be a bit wordy at times but I still think it is a great read.
