Gabriel put his faith in his God and his king…That was centuries ago.  Harley is proud of her heritage and when she has the chance to give her hometown historical society a boost by booking an eccentric Swiss expert, she has no idea she booked someone who actually lived the history.  Immortality is a long time to have a broken heart.  Unable to stop himself, Gabriel draws the brilliant historian into his life.  Harley discovers far more than Gabriel ever expected about history, his history!  A quest to give Gabriel an answer to an old question will introduce them to the danger of a new enemy.  Is love enough when your love wants you body, soul and blood? (Official Synopsis)

This is a wonderful novella that really grabs you from page one. The story idea is fresh and gives a new twist on history and on the vampire myth, which I found extremely enjoyable.

I thought the main characters were well presented and realistic with some good dialogue and descriptions. Pace was also well maintained and the story neither lagged nor felt rushed.

There is one fairly graphically described sex scene, so this is not one for those squeamish about erotica, but otherwise I would happily recommend this book to anyone.

There were a number of errors I noticed in the text, but this is an issue relating to the quality of the proofreading and not to the author's writing. 

Overall this was a great addition to the paranormal romance genre. I look forward to seeing if the author will release more books based in this world.
