Isabella Tenderini, a wealthy merchant's widow rescues a stranger from drowning in one of Venice's canals. And how does the man repay her selfless act? By kissing her - her, a respectable woman.
Not only is Raphael di Santori grateful for his life being saved, he would also like to thank his rescuer very intimately - more intimately than decorum allows. But then, Raphael has never been one to play by the rules - as a vampire he doesn't have to.
As most of you know, I LOVE VAMPIRES! So, when I came across this series of vampire romance novellas, I was like "heck yeah!" And Venice Vampyr did not disappoint. It was fast paced, extremely erotic (some very sexy scenes) and, overall, intriguing.
Set in early 1800s Venice, Italy, this book combines historical society, vampires, secret, underground factions, and, most importantly, steamy romance. The book hits starts off at a sprint:Raphael di Santori (the sexy vampire) is sinking into the depths of the Venitian canals and lovely Isabella Tenderini rescues him.
This is an extremely fast read and I highly recommend it to those of you who just need to get away into a book for a little awhile.
Warning:explicit and graphic sex (Very OOOLALA)
