I am called Chapel . . . For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet... Never have I known a maiden the like of Prudence Ryland, whose beauty and spirit awaken a heart I feared long cold and dead. But her young life is slipping away, and she also seeks the deliverance of the Grail -- unaware that the cost of her search could be her soul. I must help Prudence, for in six hundred years, no other woman has stirred my passions so. But dare I tender to my beloved that which she most desires -- the sensuous "gift" of forever that is both rapture and a curse: my immortal kiss?

Opening Line:" It was obvious the door was not meant to be opened."This is one of those books that you either love or hate and while I didn’t love this it did manage to redeem itself enough so that in the end I didn’t hate it either. Set in 1899 (which for some reason I didn’t know until I started r...
I'm dnfing this solely because of the narrator - Vanessa Hart - who I didn't like at all.First, she sounded OLD, which wouldn't be a problem if she was portraying an older person, but she wasn't. Second, her voice sounded too masculine as if she had smoked too many cigarettes (maybe that's why she s...
This was just alright for me. Nothing surprising and the storyline was very predictable.I was irritated by the end, just wanted Chapel to get it over with. Might continue the series, haven't decided yet.
This book read much more like a typical regency historical romance, even though it was written in Victorian times (1899) and had a vampire. The book was good, but if you are looking for a dark, edgy, sensual story about an underworld of vampires and creatures that go bump in the night, then pass on ...
