Book Description

Dying of a rare blood disease, Eleanor Franklin needs laudanum to ease the pain, often driven to steal in order to buy more. But when she steals a ruby she has no idea that the gem will tip her into the midst of a deadly species war.

Saved by Jefferson Park, she discovers a man with an even darker past than her own—he is one of the last true Vampires fighting to stop the eradication of his kind.

But the Sanguine aren't the only problem as Eleanor finds herself falling in love with Jefferson. It is a relationship she cannot commit to, as she knows her time is limited, and she will not risk breaking his heart.

Review:

Well, this was an interesting read to be sure. Not anything like I expected and entertaining still. I knew this was a Steampunk book to begin with, but having very little experience with said genre, I guess it could be argued that I really didn't have any idea what to expect. I knew the genre was a mixture of historical meets contemporary with all sorts of treats thrown in and that is pretty much what I got. If this is Steampunk, I'm in.

Eleanor is dying. Suffering from a type of blood cancer and unable to work due to the unbearable pain of her disease, she has turned to a life of crime. Crime that only pays in the form of laudanum; the only temporary relief she can get from her pain at this point. She knows she doesn't have much time left but still seeks a respite from the crippling disease. Unbeknownst to her, her latest bout of thieving will launch her head first into a world she never could have fathomed existed. Horrified at first, she slowly comes around to accept her surroundings and the "people" within.

Jefferson is one of the last remaining vampires. Gone to ground to escape extinction, the remaining handful of his kind are somewhere in hiding. Only one thing can save his species from the eradication brought on by the vampire "cousin" race, the Sanguine, the gem that Eleanor has just procured. With a Sanguine hot on her tail, Jefferson quickly rescues Eleanor and ends up offering her a place to stay after recognizing that she is afflicted by illness. Jefferson senses something special about this human thrust upon him and before too long desires flare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read you don't want to miss! September 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Eleanor's Heart is the first book I have read by Misa Buckley, and that is kind of strange because I am a die hard fan of vampire books! But I'm glade that Misa contacted me to review her latest book, because Eleanor's Heart is a fantastic read!

Eleanor is a strong woman but with a terrible disease. She is trying to keep herself on her feet by using Laudanum. After being rescued by a beautiful strong vampire after she is attacked she finds out that she's not only have to fight against a strange paranormal being but that she also wants to fight against her disease to stay alive and in secret hoping for a romantic future with her rescuer.

Misa Buckley has written a short but strong story containing al the right elements. Good world building, paranormal beings, strong alpha hero, strong heroine that keeps on going and just the right amount of steamy scenes to keep it hot enough!

I doubt if I would be thinking of romance, hot men and fighting with vampires if I had that terrible disease. But luckily for it is just a story :)

I highly recommend it to readers with a weakness for vampire romance.
