Excerpt from Amazon:
Once featured in a horror movie, the crumbling Wolfram estate is said to be haunted by ghosts, witches, and worse. But Elena doesn't believe a word of it—until she spends the night and wakes up in the arms of a compelling stranger. . .
Tall, dark, and disturbingly handsome, Drake is the most beautiful man Elena has ever seen. For centuries, he has lived alone, and Elena is the first woman to enter his lair—and survive. And Drake is the first man to touch her heart and soul. By the time she discovers who he really is—and what he craves—it's too late. Blood lust has turned to love, and Elena is deeply under Drake's spell. But forever comes at a price for each of them. . .
I enjoyed this story. I thought it had a familiar theme in regards to the heroine being needy and lost and the vampire sweeping in and protecting her. I am not sure why these guys all live hundreds of years but never seem to find love until they meet her.
Elena was a decent heroine but I would have loved it if she would have had a little bit more backbone. Drake is your typical vampire but I did like the shape-shifting aspect of his life. I thought that was a nice touch. All in all a good read. I have read a few books by Ms. Ashley and will continue to do so.
