The greatest enemy of a vampire is boredom. Four centuries of existence have taught Lord Morgan Gabriel D'Arcy to fear nothing and no one. Humans and their weapons have little chance against his preternatural speed and arcane powers. Vampires are viral mutations of human DNA. Still, the Vampyre code requires secrecy, and he has learned to hide his nature from the world. The lure of mortality, of a life in the sun, puts Morgan again and again at the mercy of calculating human women though they fail to consider his charm and determination into the equation. However, even grooming a future bride from infancy proves to be fraught with heartbreak. And second chances are not always what they seem unless... you are Morgan. Immortality and beauty, aren’t they grand?
I haven't read many vampire books. But something in the description spoke to me. This book was a crazy ride, that's for sure. A collection of four stories Devil’s Waltz, Sunrise Sunset, Night Moves and Intermezzo having a character that links them all - Morgan D’Arcy, vampire. Morgan is a complicated creature. A vampire who loves to play the piano and craves to become mortal again.
Vampires are no longer monsters, but fine seducers, purveyors of passion.
Excellent read! The author created a story that captured and held my mind. My interest held, never wavering while my inquisitive nature wouldn't let me put this book down till I reached the last page.
The characters just come to life on the page. Dr. Amber Wolfe, scientist and temptress, will pay a too dear price for her wish to be like Morgan, immortal
Fiona Allman. dark-haired minx who offers Morgan a day in the sun in exchange for murdering a man.
Sheila the thin waif earning her living as a prostitute but proves a real surprise for him and Ellen Amesworth are his partners in each chapter. I enjoyed all stories, but I must admit I went back and reread paragraphs from Sunset Sunrise.
I am being vague on purpose. I don't want to take from your enjoyment, so you'll have to discover all this on your own. So what are you waiting for? If you haven't read this book yet, go do it now!
