The first book I read of hers and I loved it. Couldn't put it down. For a historical paranormal book it was beautifully written. Very dark twisted but dramatic and a great read. Loved the tortured hero in this Gian and the connection he found with Kate. It could have been easily contrived but it wasn't, both characters are fully developed and so is the story. Both come from dark troubled backgrounds and total outsiders that connect. Her style of writing stands out to me and made me start reading her other books.
