The peasants called him the Count of Albion, and they both feared and revered him. A fighter for Italy's freedom, the mysterious nobleman preferred the night hours to mask his missions—and to shroud his tormented soul. Sequestered in the villa called the Three Fountains, he hid his secrets well—until the arrival of a beautiful Englishwoman, Miss Cordelia Hope.

💙 I read this for the Unapologetic Romance Readers' New Years 2018 Reading Challenge, for the category of: Paranormal Romance. For more info on this challenge, click here. 💙

Look at that cover - oh my God, the pose, the costumes, the cheese. This is what I live for, as a reviewer of vintage romance novels. Bad romance covers are a key part of the Old Skool Experience™. That said, once I got over the low resolution Photoshop job and what is e

I’m sorry- but I’ll not apologize for totally geeking out over this book. I LOVED IT! It was such a unique take on vampire romance. Do yourself a favor and read! I love when one or both characters have to fight (and I mean FIGHT) the temptation of lust and desire.

Yikes like 3 pages in and im already utterly creeped out by the tone. The hero talks so dryly and dispassionately about "mating" and the potential for her dying during said mating. I'm thinking no thank you. DNF

Romantico e raffinato,racconta del conte di Albione, un nobile italiano che vive di notte, circondato da un alone di timore e rispetto in una villa sperduta nella campagna modenese. Lei è Cordelia Hope, delicata bellezza inglese, che all’improvviso piomba nella sua casa e nella sua vita insieme alla cugina e ad una serva. Ben presto Cordelia si rende conto che in quel conte affascinante e tenebroso c’è qualcosa di strano, e l’inaspettata connessione dei loro pensieri(mi ha fatto ripensare ai Car ...more
Quite a few glaring issues with proofing. An unusual take on the vampire romance. I don't think I have ever seen vampires as aliens before. It was an enjoyable and quick read but lacking polish. I would have liked more of the historical background to be involved and a few plot elements tied up more neatly. I had previously read another work by the author and found it to be more enjoyable and the writing of a higher quality.

I am proud to say this is one of the books I edited during my stint as a romance editor. Jasmine is a talented writer, and in this novel she decided to try a vampire novel with an intoxicating Italian setting.

To this day, I enjoy her care with words and her ability to set a scene. I believe all of her recent books have been suspense novels - she always delivers a fun read.

It was a good book I liked it. But I only give it 3 stars because it has a lot of unanswered questions at the end, and that would have been OK if it was a series but its not, for a stand alone novel I think it could have been better.

Another book from Kindle. Again, hope there is a sequel. A very interesting vampire novel, with an element of Science Fiction.

Ok beginning but it started to spiral out of control into the ridicilous towards the end.
