Anne caught her husband cheating with the maid of Honor before their wedding cake was cut. She decided to take her planned and paid for honeymoon in Tuscany, alone. On the evening of what was to be her wedding night, she gets bitten by a female vampire.
Marcus Monteleone has waited three hundred years to find his fated female, only to discover her dying in his arms. He saves Anne's life by turning her, and then works to gain her trust, to cope with being a newly-formed golden vampire.
But when Anne finds out Marcus has not been completely truthful about his past, she vows to live as a human, and shuns the vampire world. Alone and unprotected, she falls prey to the very villainess who took her human soul, and who now takes the only man she’s ever loved.
Which lover will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the other before they both are lost?
Wow what a fantastic book! When Sharon first emailed me requesting that I review her book I didn't know what I was in for. I had never heard of her and didn't know anyone who has read any of her books. Boy am I happy I gave her a shot because I was extremely surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It even made me cry and that never happens. lol
Anne catches her just married husband in bed with the maid of honor on her wedding day so she decides to go on her honeymoon alone to work through some of her obvious problems. Little did she know her problems are about to get a lot worse. She is attacked by a female vampire and almost died but she's saved by Marcus, our hero. Marcus is a golden vampire meaning he can walk in sunlight. He instantly recognizes Anne as his fated mate and almost looses her when he had just found her. Since he changed her to save her life without the permission of the council he is not allowed to make contact with her at all for 31 days so she has to adjust to her change all alone. And this is one of the things I loved about Anne's character she isn't scared or whiny through the change she actually embraces her new powers and finds enjoyment out of being a vampire. Because Marcus and Anne are fated they have a very intense attraction to one another making this a super spicy read. I got so emotionally involved with these characters that I actually cried in several places in the book and I never cry when reading a book. So I would say her character development was right on. Not only did I fall in love with the two main characters but I either loved or hated all the characters with a passion.
Overall this was a great story with lots of twists and turns that kept you in suspense throughout the story. When you think things can't get any worse for Marcus and Anne it does over and over again until you doubt there's going to be a happy ever after ending but everything is nicely tied up into a little bow in the end.
I highly recommend this book to paranormal romance fans. This is a must read at a great price on Amazon for your Kindle. There is some graphic violence in this book so if blood and guts make you uncomfortable I would avoid reading this book. I look forward to reading more books by Sharon Hamilton soon.
