Holly has created a whole new world...erotic and extremely sensual. (_Escape to Romance_)

Product Description

The world's oldest living vampire assumes a mortal identity--and experiences a blazing passion for a woman that brings his tired heart back to life. ( )

Lucius White, a vampire so old that he has lost almost all interest in life, finds himself taking on the identity of a country squire and paying court to a bold local girl living in genteel poverty. Theo at first thinks of matching him with her older sister, Caroline, but soon they are sharing a mutual awakening. Meanwhile, Caroline indulges a thoroughly unsuitable attraction to a gardener. I found myself more interested in this subplot. Perhaps it was because this is book five in a series, but I felt like the story doesn’t get much mileage out of the vampire angle. These are shiny, gentle vampires, as tame as Twilight’s Dr. Cullen, and the dramatic tension comes from the romance, hardly at all from any vampire issues. Meanwhile, trouble is wrought by a sexual deviant. Why is that a characteristic of erotic romance? ( )

The Midnight series by Emma Holly are really great books. The are a hot mix between supernatural and erotica. I love her Upyrs. She created them well. They are quite different than vampires even though they consume blood and are allergic to sunlight. These Upyr are definitely not soulless and they aren't devil's spawn. My favourite male character was Lucius. He is enigmatic. I liked him best when the story wasn't centered on him. He's to human when she tells from his point of view. My favourite female character is Gillian. She's so free. So powerful as well. She grows so much in the books. ( )
