What a surprising book. I have to admit, I read this book not expecting to be engaged, much to my surprise the book grabbed me and reeled me in...I was 'caught'!
Roman centurion Dominic drew his last human breath during the time of Hadrian. In the centuries since, he’s seen much of the world change around him, but the vampire finds himself held captive in Melbourne, Australia, by his fascination with young, passionate, fun-loving, and alive tattoo artist Michael Chapman. Unable to resist the lure of Michael’s beauty, Dominic finds himself entering the parlor to get a tattoo he knows will fade.
The attraction he feels only grows, and despite Dominic’s extreme reluctance to get involved with a human, he and Michael form a bond—a connection that all too soon attracts the attention of a dark specter from Dominic’s bloody past. Soon, a dangerous game of cat and mouse threatens not only the budding romance, but also their humanity.
The author wrote this with passion and is truly talented at crafting characters that are likable and you as a reader can connect with easily . The story starts out a bit shaky but revs up within the first chapter and from there it is full speed ahead. This is a m/m pnr so for those who do not like that genre you may want to steer clear but if you like m/m and you like vampires...you, like me will adore this book...It is a very sweet romance and not heavy on the sex. In fact if you have been curious and haven't yet delved into M/M romances this would be a fabulous one with which to start out. I feel this author does not get enough credit for her writing and I look forward to reading her other books. Yes! I just bought them all and if you read this book you will too.
.I give it a solid 4.5 stars!..and encourage you all to read Ink by Isabelle Rowan
