Author: Violet Summers

Rating: You Want to Read - A Good book.
Reviewed by: Shawn Weisser
Magnus Crowe learned the hard way never to trust a beautiful woman, so when his partner Silas discovers that someone is stealing from their club, The Dungeon, Magnus is totally opposed to calling in a woman to fix it. Particularly a Longfellow woman.
Prudence Longfellow comes from an ancient line of woman warriors. Longfellows are healers, historians and guardians...and in her case, forensic accountants. She agrees to track the missing money at The Dungeon with one condition: Magnus Crowe must stay far away from her.
That's a promise easier made than kept. Pru might look like a little mouse, but she's a warrior at heart, and her valor (not to mention the intoxicating scent of amber and vanilla that follows her around) are impossible for Magnus to resist. Magnus and Pru fight their attraction to each other for as long as they can, but even an ancient Vampire and a Longfellow can't beat fate.
But fate isn't the only thing conspiring against them. Magnus' and Silas' sire, the evil Contessa Allessandra DiCasca, has set a foul plan in motion to reclaim her boys. It is only with the power he finds in Pru's love that Magnus can gain the strength to defeat his creator and protect all he holds dear.
Oh my. Where do I start? The authors must have known of my obsession with the Scot brogue and my, how should I say it, well, fetish for vampires. The authors, Sierra Summers and Violet Johnson, seemed to be writing just for me. Rock stars, strong warrior women, Scots, a bit of evil, and of course some graphic love scenes. This is not a book for faint of heart nor is if for your husband, unless you want him to learn a few things about what turns you on. Goodness! I really liked the story, obviously, but there were a couple of things that niggled me as I read. There were some typos, words left out; minor stuff that bugged the OCD in me, and the way in which they had the main character speak when he was aroused. I understand he was an “old” vampire and the more guttural speech was what the authors were looking for, but after hundreds of years you would think he could add a personal pronoun in a sentence or two. That being said, I had to remember to breathe a bit here and there when the more passionate scenes were being described. Lovely tail, er, tale. Thanks ladies. Whew!
