Blurb from Tina's Website:
Early 1800s - Venice Italy
Isabella Tenderini, a wealthy merchant's widow rescues a stranger from drowning in one of Venice's canals. And how does the man repay her selfless act? By kissing her - her, a respectable woman.
Not only is Raphael di Santori grateful for his life being saved, he would also like to thank his rescuer very intimately - more intimately than decorum allows. But then, Raphael has never been one to play by the rules - as a vampire he doesn't have to.
Warning: This vampire novella is sexually more explicit than my other books. So, if you're a little squeamish about things like voyeurism and other sexual taboos, it's safe to assume you won't like this one.
Can I just say how much I love Tina's books, I had read her warning so I was pretty sure what I was getting into when I started to read this book. This book didn't disappoint but my eyes did grow wide with a few scenes.
There are several things I loved about this book, one that it takes place in one of my favorite cities. I lived in Italy when I was a small child and to be taken back to a country and city that I fell in love with way back when was so nice.
Secondly, Tina's writing amazes me each time I read her books, I admit I haven't read too much erotica -what I have,has been mild so this was a bit of a shock to the system but it didn't take long for me to feel comfortable in reading and that is do to the fact it was well written.
I devoured this book in just a couple hours , I tuned out everything around me I just couldn't get enough of Raphael and Isabella.
Only part I didn't like was it was too short, I really could use more of their story.
Would I recommend ? Yes but please read Tina's warning if you aren't into voyeurism and other sexual taboos then this book won't be for you. Meanwhile I am running off to get the second book in this series Venice Vampyr-Final Affair(Dante's book).
Rating 4.5 out of 5 stars
