London’s diversions hold no charm for Roan Cabrera. Despite his reputation as a scoundrel, he’s in high demand among the city’s most eligible young women. And though their blood can quench his undying thirst, none of them can fill the emptiness in his centuries-old soul. He finds solace only in easing the pain of those near death—by helping them relive their most cherished memories …

The last thing Kathryn Winterbourne remembers is being struck by a carriage. When she awakens in a luxurious bed, she feels like she must have died and gone to heaven. But the man who has saved her is no angel. With his penetrating eyes, the darkly handsome Roan looks more like the devil himself. And when Kathryn is confronted with the truth about her mysterious hero, she’ll have to decide whether to shutter her heart against him—or give in to the thrill of his love …

I’ve been reading titles by Amanda Ashley, on and off, for ages I remember a time when I used to be able to read one of her titles never skipping a beat. However, I’ve been grappling to maintain enthusiasm.

Hold Back The Dawn, was a well-written, but for some reason, it took twice as long to complete this title, than before.

Kathryn Winterbourne was becoming a royal pain. If she changed her mind one more time, about staying ore leaving, I would have killed her myself.

Roan Cabrera was a pure hero…he gave the dying piece, offering them an opportunity to relieve one happiest moment in time before they died.

A pleasant story…just not one worth reading a second time.

About Amanda Ashley

I write paranormal romances for Zebra Books, and I love it. Most of my stories are about vampires because, I admit, I’m fascinated by them. I also admit I don’t like most vampire movies. I’m not really into blood and gore in living color on the screen, although I do love the movie, Dracula, starring Frank Langella. I just close my eyes from time to time.

Anyone who knows me also knows I love all things Star Wars, Phantom, and Beauty and the Beast.

I also write historical romances as Madeline Baker, many of which have been reissued on Kindle with new covers.


Don't be shy. I love to hear from my readers. Leave a comment!
