A story about a man looking for his soulmate over the centuries is never a bad thing and this was a good story. The premise is simple, an artist moves into an old house and meets a man on the beach. What she doesn't know is that this man is a vampire and she's already lived many lives with him, each time with a tragic ending where she has died in his arms after refusing to allow him to turn her into a vampire.

It's amazing the similarities that I got with [b:Twilight|41865|Twilight|Stephenie Meyer|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1275613536s/41865.jpg|3212258] at times even though the storyline is different. It was so apparent at times (the younger rival for Dominic's affections who Tracy ultimately feels less for than she does for Dominic despite having some sort of strong emotional tie to him, the mention of North American Indians having their own theories about vampires, Dominic's insistence on a marriage before he slept with Tracy...) that I actually ended up checking the dates to see if this was influenced by Twilight or vice versa (this was apparently earlier).

There were parts of this I really enjoyed - the flashes of the earlier lifetimes were diverse in terms of when they were, Dominic was the perfect romantic hero - powerful, possessive, attractive, loyal, dangerous, romantic yada yada yada and I enjoyed that the powers were far more traditional vampire with the ability to manipulate thoughts, turn into mist and yes, sleep in a coffin and burn in the sun.

Depite that though there were other parts I didn't like - Tracy often seemed ungrateful and unfeeling towards Dominic (to the extent that he contemplates killing himself), her flirtation with Bryan felt wrong and selfish, the 'drama' between the vampires almost didn't feel big enough and the tidy ending of Bryan and Dominic's creator was just a little too tidy.

It's being a bit nit-picky - this book isn't supposed to be a masterpiece, but it is a good, quick read and blends the romance and supernatural well. You might not care about Tracy, but you can't help but want Dominic to be happy and be glad that he gets his hearts desire after centuries. It's maybe not a book that will appeal to all, but it's a nice way to kill a couple of days. ( )

Another good novel from Amanda Ashley. Sexy vampire with plenty of twists to keep you interested, good pace, and well written. ( )
