Rarely have I come across authors that rub me the wrong way this is one of them Her characters are flat two dimentional creatures that inspire NOTHING When I read the first chapter excerpt on the publishers website it sounded interesting and plausible How wrong I was The hero is moody and indecisive the heroine is a dieing virgin who despite knowing she’s going to croak refuses to go past first base and a little kissy face without getting her white wedding gown and her walk down the isle first The author basically tossed the characters all together all at once without any planning or thought Kind of like tossing vegetables together in water calling it soup and hoping for a palatable outcomeIf you were to take away the thin veil of the vampire and the virgin angle What you have left is a poorly written non regency plain jane romance Save your self time and hard earned book money I wish I had

She needs his kiss unleashes a primal hunger that makes her feel truly alive for the first timeAfter centuries of existence Ronan has done the unthinkable He has fallen in love with a mortal and one with only weeks to live Sensing the fear and reluctance beneath Shannah’s reuest he offers her a diff. My Summary Shannah is going to die She has a blood disease that none of the doctors can identify and she only has months to live She’s on her last month possibly her last week she hates to think it’s her last day but it sure feels like it She has been watching the strange tall dark and hansom man for several months and is convinced that he is a vampire though she’s not exactly sane when she makes that decision She goes to him seeking immortality but collapses in near death on his front porch When she wakes up she feels better What did he do that healed her She’s not a vampire but even the doctors couldn’t heal her then there’s the fact that she’s pretty sure that she’s falling in love with him but Ronan’s healing doesn’t last forever and Shannah has to make a hard choiceRonan is five hundred and thirteen years old He has never loved anyone in his life but when Shannah comes to his door he takes her into his house and begins to heal her in his own special way But then he accidentally falls in love with her That causes problems—when your mortal soulmate is going to die soon and she isn’t sure she wants to be a leach her whole life If he changes her against her will will she hate him forever Are his only choices letting her die and losing her or changing her and losing herAnd then there’s that whole problem with a vampire hunter tracking down Ronan and trying to kill himMy Thoughts—at first glimpse this seemed so twilight ish But once I started reading it I got out of my vampire stereotype and enjoyed this book uite a lot I was at the library and dying for a light hearted vampire romance because I was just in that mood so I picked it up It’s a very uick read and very sweetThe Plot—the plot moved uickly though at one point a thought crossed my mind “there isn’t much story here how is the author dragging it out into 345 pages and is still managing to keep it interesting” although the plot seemed a little simple it held my attention very wellThe Characters—I loved the characters in this book Shannah was depicted as a desperate to do anything to keep alive kind of girl to the point that she was willing to live with a vampire Ronan had so much passion and love for this poor girl that it made him endearing I love how he’d always call her “love” It was so sweet Jim Hewitt the hunter was a character that you just didn’t like one bit—a strong willed jerk who although he thought he was doing the right thing even that he was doing it to keep Shannah safe I didn’t like him and I felt sorry for him Though in my opinion I liked what happened to him at the end ;The writing—There were a lot of really good descriptions in this book I was able to see everything that the author said in beautiful detail There wasn’t any graphic sex though there were a few scenes at the end but it was brief There were a few re used phrases in the book though and that gets annoying My sister and I call this the JMG Syndrome or “Jenny McGrady” syndrome because of a series we read when we were younger Jenny was always feeling “like she got slugged in the stomach” The phrase was used several times in all fifteen books It got old really fast Shannah had many kissed “brushed across her brow” in this book But besides that the writing was warm and welcomingMy Recommendation I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good paranormal romance vampires or just a romance in general Ages 16 only because of the freuency of sex at the end of the book though I will say that the vampire held fast to abstinence so that was encouraging there wasn’t any foul language and I really liked that I hate books that have so much language that I feel dirty reading it But this book was very cleanHaleyknitz

Dead PerfectErent bargain that will keep her near him during the time she has left Every hour spent together leaves him craving her touch her scent her life’s essence Soon only Shannah can satisfy his thirst But if he saves her from death will she love him for it or spend eternity regretting what she has become. Unfortunately this book was not “Dead Perfect” While it was a good vampire romance book it was not a great vampire romance for Ms Baker AKA Amanda Ashley Ronan a 513 year old vampire falls in love with Shannah a 24 year old who is dying Shannah has a feeling that Ronan is a vampire and seeks him out because she doesn’t want to die I won’t give the rest away in case you want to read it for yourself The two positives and different things about this book and why it has 3 starsis that are different from the usual are the heroine is dying and the heroine is an emotionally strong character based on Ms Baker’s other characters who can actually DO things for HERSELF What a concept Now I’m not saying that once and a while it isn’t nice to have a little fainty weak character but it IS nice to finally see a strong character after having a strong character drought from “Midnight Embrace” Please write another historical vampire romance Those are few and far between and oh so yummy A hybrid between “A Darker Dream” and “Midnight Embrace”
