A creature of the night, Sarafina lives only for pleasure, but love is an emotion she has deemed forbidden. Experience has taught her that love leads only to betrayal and pain, and she wants no more of pain. She cares for no one, tolerating only the presence of those she can control utterly. With her powers, she is convinced she can break anyone. Willem Stone cannot be bro...more

A creature of the night, Sarafina revels in the glory of vengeance and rage. And she tries not to remember a time when she knew the meaning of love . . . before she was betrayed by the curse of her blood.

She plays for kicks, but never for keeps. Even when she spots William Stone at a local nightclub, she wants only to possess him long enough to satiate her deep, passionate hunger. His power and his strength excite her. But Will is much more than anything she could ever imagine.

He is a man of a...more
I haven’t read the other books of this series, but “Embrace The Twilight” by Maggie Shayne is very good. It’s about Sarafina, a vampire woman who had a lot of emotional pain in her long life and Willem a human soldier who can communicate with her in a very strange way.
I liked this book because it was easy to read but in the end I had some questions, because the author didn't give us some important information. But, it’s a good book! :)
Willem Stone - special forces... the first third of the book is his torture when captured in the desert... and his escape from the pain came in day dreams, where his spirit joined with Sarafina...

Sarafina... a couple of hundred years earlier, a gypsy, a seer, a witch of sorts... and she has blood that will lead to an early death or eternal life if sharing blood with a vampire... betrayed by her sister & fiance, she embraces life with the thousands year old vampire... And Willem, her spirit,...more
Den här vampyr romanen handlar om Sarafina och Will, två helt olika personer, han människa, hon uråldrig vampyr, han stark och klarar allt, hon med svårt förflutet bakom sig, men tillsammans hittar kärleken i varandra och över alla hinder vinner dom över den
This is book 8 in a paranormal romance (vampire) series that began in the 90s (well before the twilight and black dagger brotherhood explosion).

These books are a very similar style to black dagger brotherhood in that each book is about a specific vampire, there are people trying to kill them, all the characters from previous books are inter-related and each book in itself has a nice little happish ending. Very very similar. But these books came first.

However, I think these books lack the intensi...more

Book 11 in the "Wings in the Night" series (if reading in chronological order). Great book in the series, but you have to wonder at what is going to happen to the hero and heroine down the road... since the hero is not one of the Chosen, and cannot be turned into a vampire...? This is the story of Sarafina (vampire) and Willem Stone (human). Sarafina is the sire of Dante (from Twilight Hunger). This book features many familiar faces from the past and the bad DPI is at it again...
not really a funny book...but still a good one...toward the end there was a good action scenes...but it is koolio how will and sarafina are connected like that...but i feel sorry on how many times she has fell in love and been left for someone else...and her sister...what a *****...im serious..my sister is mean...but not that mean.
I've been slowly reading through the Wings in the Night series for a few years now. They were one of the first paranormal romance series that I had ever read and really opened the door to the genre for me. Maggie Shayne is a great author and while she fell just a tad short in this one for me I can see how it adds a very imporatant piece to the world she has built.

After the demises of DPI - an organization set on destroying vampires - things seem to be going better. But there are still a few rogu...more
I really enjoyed the book. This is Sarafina's and Will's story. Sarafina is a vampire and Will is a human (but not one of the chosen). I'll wait to see if M. Shayne addresses this in the next book. We also got to see Amber Lily grown up.
I have been reading this series out of order, so was quite interested in finding out how Willem and Serafina came to be together. I quite enjoyed their story, although I did not rnk this as the best in this series.
An easy read, with vivid scenes that could keep you awake at night. The suspense is nail-biting. I was moved by Sarafina and Willem's story. A very entertaining book that I enjoyed very much.
Maggie Shayne always writes a good yarn. In this book, she creates the perfect match for Vampire Gypsy Princess Sarafina in Colonial Willem Stone. Bravo!

(Second Read. Still satisfying.)

This is a very good story and im glad that i buy the book :) It has so passion and hot characters,the story is so magic,and the book travels you in fantasy...
This is great. Safa and Will are perfect for each other. They have a really bumpy start but come along in end. Great HEA. love this family.

TRAMA: Sarafina, potente e bellissima vampira, non si fida più di nessuno, nemmeno di Will Stone. Lo ha amato finché lo credeva uno spirito-guida, un’incorporea voce nella mente da cui trarre conforto nei momenti bui, non ora che, nella New York del XXI secolo, lui si rivela un semplice mortale. Poi Amber Lily, l’unica creatura nata da vampiri, viene rapita dagli agenti del DPI, così entrambi sono costretti a unire le forze per ritrovarla. E Sarafina scopre che Will è un mortale, sì, ma decisame...more

Not as good as her other works. I actually find that I like her shorter novellas when she puts two or three stories into one anthologies.

Not as good.
An entertaining read despite the ridiculousness of it. The rushed ending and lack of believable character development ate away the third star.

All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State; Cortland County. There are more cattle than people here.
