An earl with a terrifying secret....
Alexander Cole was a man ruled by his voracious appetite for carnal pleasures until a golden-haired devil in the guise of a goddess lures him into an encounter that costs him his humanity. With nothing left but bitterness in his heart, he locks himself away in his dilapidated Elizabethan mansion and chains the gates to all intruders.
A lady hoping to prove love conquers all....
When her aunt suffers an injury in a carriage accident, Evelyn Bromwell rushes through the forest in search of help. Drawn to the mysterious old mansion, she is left aghast to find such a frosty reception. Yet despite the earl's rude and brusque manner, Evelyn is eager to discover the reason behind his austere fa├žade.
Once desire begins to burn, Alexander and Evelyn are unable to deny the soul-deep connection that exists between them. But Evelyn must make a choice - marry the kind and affable Mr. Sutherby or risk everything in the hope of thawing an immortal's frozen heart.

Regency Romance Meets Beauty and the Beast

Evelyn Bromwell is traveling with her aunt to meet the man she expects to marry. Evelyn isn't in love, but security drives her to consider marriage. She and her aunt are caught in a storm and their carriage overturns. Evelyn's aunt and coachman are badly injured. Evelyn runs through the forest in search of help and stumbles across a chained gate blocking her way to a dilapidated manor. Determined to save her aunt, Evelyn climbs the gate, forces her way into the house, and demands that the man inside help her.

Alexander Cole is a selfish man only concerned with his own misery. Two years ago a beautiful woman bewitched him and he'd woken to find himself changed, craving blood and unable to bear sunlight. He locked himself away in his manor and spread rumors that he had been terribly disfigured in an accident. Now he spends every day alone, living on animal blood and cursing his loneliness.

When Evelyn arrives at his home, Alex isn't overwhelmed by his craving for her blood. Instead she stirs pity in him, and for the first time in two years Alex glimpses his own humanity. Determined to discover if the feelings will last, Alex agrees to help her. When Evelyn and her aunt are forced to stay in his home until her soon to be fiancee arrives, she awakens other feelings in him that he hadn't felt even before he was cursed.

I haven't read many vampire novels, but I think this would be considered "vampire lite". The focus is on Regency romance and the vampire plot is secondary. It does add a flavor with a light tang of the supernatural that makes this story unique . Alex is a tortured soul, isolated and tormented. Evelyn is a strong and capable heroine, fighting to force her way into Alex's heart. I enjoyed all the characters in the book and the story was well told and entertaining. This isn't a clean read, there are passionate and explicit love scenes.

I've listened to a few audiobooks narrated by Kylie Stewart and they're always enjoyable. The narrator speaks with an accent that's very pleasant. I received a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
