Giovanni Lanzoni may just be the world’s oldest male virgin. Or at least, the oldest male virgin vampire. Giovanni has clung to the vows he made a thousand years ago as a mortal priest—yet he is no longer either of those things. Others of his kind have settled down since claiming immortality, finding love, even raising children. Sensing his loneliness, Mara, Queen of the Vampires, eagerly sets out to find Giovanni the perfect mate. But only one woman, met by chance on a dark night, truly tempts him . . .

Cassie Douglas has never met a man she trusts as much as Giovanni. Yet the shocking truth he reveals makes her question their deep connection. There are other urgent obstacles too. Giovanni’s sire, an ancient, dangerously powerful vampire, is awakening after centuries of slumber, with vengeance on his mind. And in the battle unfolding around them, everything is at risk—their lives, their loved ones, and a passionate eternity together . . .



MY REVIEW:
I picked this book up because I felt like it. I have read many of Amanda Ashley’s books back in the day. I finished this book in one day because there was so much going on. It was an interesting read to see Mara try to play match maker for Giovanni.

Giovanni didn’t need help at all as he found Cassie one night. The sparks between them were sweet. It was a little slow but a good slow. I like how the two of the communicated really well. Even when Giovanni talked about being a virgin to her as she was kind to make him feel not so embarrassed about it. As the story went on, Cassie was thrown into the world of meeting all the other vampires as it was awkward because Giovanni was old school. He wanted to get married before he actually did the deed.

Of course there is a villian – Alric! I don’t like him. He’s mean and an awful vampire. He wants revenge on Mara who’s the oldest vampire ever because she killed someone he loved. He also is related to Giovanni. So will he get his revenge, will he take down Mara or Giovanni? What will he do? Is he that cunning?

Will Mara or Giovanni stop Alric? Will Cassie survive? Will she be turned to a vampire? Will Cassie and Giovanni have a happy ending?

Isn’t the cover cute?
