Synopsis

Despite her impeccable lineage and delicate beauty, Amelia Hadwell has no interest in social demands – not when she must care for her brother William, whose otherworldly manner has convinced their family he is mad.  Determined to care for him, Amelia is horrified to learn that he has been escaping to the East End, where a shocking series of murders has terrorized the neighborhood – and that her neighbor, Drake Ramone, is convinced William is the culprit!

Desperate to safeguard her brother, Amelia accepts the offer of a hiding place from Sebastian St. Ives, a reclusive scholar to whom William has taken a liking.  Drawn to the reserved, silver eyed stranger, she is amazed when he reveals the unsettling reason for Drake’s interest in William – and the danger an amulet in Amelia’s possession represents.

Yet nothing is as shattering as the realization that although Sebastian belongs to a world she cannot imagine, she has surrendered her heart to him with just one kiss…

Quick & Dirty: The quest for the Medallion places Amelia and William Hadwell in harms way with only Sebastian St. Ives set to guard them with his life.

Opening SentenceThe cottage set in the thick copse of trees was a dark, cramped affair.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Like many of you I often judge a book by its cover and often find that my fears or joys have been  misplaced.  To be completely honest, I didn’t hold out much hope for this book based on the cover.  Admittedly this cover dates back from 2003 but contained all of the tropes that go along with the inclusion of vampires.  You know the ones I mean like full moon, red cape, and heroine offering her neck up.  However, the book is a pleasant novel to read while away on a lazy afternoon.

One of the most notable additions to this book is our heroine’s younger brother who is mentally challenged.  Amelia’s care for William is a beautiful picture of her character and gives the reader significant insight into her character.  She has given up Society and all of the parties in order to care for her brother and ensure that he stays with the family.

Sebastian St. Ives entrance into Amelia’s life occurs after she witnesses a murder and while the murderer is trying to convince her that he is harmless.  Sebastian has spent his long life wanting to become a scholar but was chosen for this special assignment of guarding not only Amelia but the Medallion that has been bonded to her.

This is a charming book that I was loathe to see the last page turned.  For all of you wondering whether you can jump into the 3rd book in the series and enjoy it, I did and I’m sure you shall as well.  Also, Amelia and Sebastian’s story is told in a manner that I would not be afraid to recommend to a reader who enjoyed paranormal romances with hardly any cursing and no sex.  So if you are looking for a clean paranormal romance then this book comes with high recommendations from me.

Notable Scene:

“Halt.”  The new form held up an arm and Amelia could see the glint of a sharp blade in the silver moonlight.  “I will not allow this.”

A dark, grating laugh echoed through the silence. “You?  You will not allow?”

Amelia’s rescuer never wavered.  “No.”

“Do not be more of a fool than you need to be.  Return to your books and pathetic studies.  You do not possess the courage nor the will to confront me.”

“Shall we see?  Shall we test the strength of my dagger?  I do not fear you.”

Lost in a thick fog of terror, Amelia nevertheless managed to notice that the gentleman now standing between her and the shadow was surprisingly large.  Not only tall, but broad through the shoulders and possessing the type of chiseled muscles not often seen in society.

Immortal Rogues Series:

1.  My Lord Vampire

2.  My Lord Eternity

3.  My Lord Immortality

FTC Advisory: Zebra/Kensington provided me with a copy of My Lord Immortality. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.
