Classic Paranormal Romance with His Dark EmbraceBy
It begins with a dark mysterious neighbor that was the object of a schoolgirl crush. Years pass and the former schoolgirl, now a grown woman, returns to her grandfather’s house after his funeral. It is with surprise and a bit of wonder that she discovers that her memories of the handsome stranger next door were not unreal, he is still every bit as compelling as before. Thus begins a tale of dark passionate needs and simple humble longings mixed with a paranormal romance that has Amanda Ashley’s own particular classic feel. Not many of today’s paranormal romance writers could take such a traditional tale of vampire need and make it work, but Ashley is a master at it.
A Dark Secret Revealed
For the man next door is Kaiden, a vampire who has kept his dark secret for years with the help of young Skylynn’s grandfather. But when her grandfather died the secret to his tonic that allowed Kaiden the one thing he ever wanted, to feel human again, is gone. Kaiden is desperate to find a solution, but he knows the the possibilities of recreating it are slim. Somehow it is missing a key ingredient, and he is beginning to suspect that Skylynn is part of the solution. But in this paranormal romance the twist is that Kaiden has always been in love with Skylynn, even when she was a child. He knew in time she would grow old enough to be with him, but now if he cannot find the answer to the missing ingredient for the potion, he will return to his bloodthirsty vampire ways. And those habits would put Skylynn and everyone else in danger.
Classic Paranormal Romance
Kaiden is the quintessential alpha vampire, and there is such a wonderful simplicity to the concept you might be forgiven for thinking there was nothing new to offer here, but you would be wrong. Because this is one paranormal romance tale that proves it is more than just the story, it is also how you tell it that makes the book. Amanda Ashley is a master at this kind of storytelling and it shows in this one. If you are looking for a good old fashion paranormal romance that is just a feel good book that ends the way it should, this is just the book for you. Sometimes, that is really all any of us ever need, a romance told right. Kudos go to Ashley for giving it to us in His Dark Embrace.
