Sean Sutherland has just about given up all hope of being released from his curse. Too long has he been doomed to remain a vampire, with no sign of the woman who is destined to save him. When a romance novelist is scheduled to make an appearance in his town, he is less than ecstatic. But what he doesn't expect is that the romance novelist is the daytime persona of Bridget Sinclair, a Fey princess and trained Huntress of Hell.
Bridget knows there's a reason she has been assigned to the small village, and while she doesn't know much about Sean Sutherland, she knows he's a vampire. And that's all a Huntress of Hell needs to know! But as she starts to get to know Sean more and more, she finds herself attracted to him- both physically and emotionally. But a Huntress of Hell is supposed to kill vampires, not fall in love with them! It's up to Sean, and a lot of his loyal friends, to convince Bridget that she is the key to unlocking his curse. But it's up to HER to figure out exactly how to break the curse!
Twilight's Kiss is a delightful novel that is the perfect blend of darkness and light. Marly Mathews creates an endearing supporting cast of characters that you will love just as much as the hero and heroine. But the hero and heroine definitely hold their own, and you find yourself becoming more and more attached to them with every turn of the page. You'll desperately want a happy ending for Sean and Bridget, so much you just want to jump in and wring their necks until they confess their love for each other! Marly Mathews has written a fantastic paranormal with animated characters, a suspenseful plot, and one emotional love story! In Twilight's Kiss, see what happens when a vampire and a Faerie princess fall in love- it's nothing short of magical!
Twilight's Kiss began in a way I personally found quite refreshing - the hero's point of view. Sean Sutherland resides in a quaint village in Scotland, and considers himself cursed. Through the use of charming secondary characters and rich dialogue, we get to live Sean's life through his eyes as his story is unraveled. He is loved and respected by all those around him, but he is a vampire. He must continue this cursed existence until the woman fortold in a prophesy is found. He isn't very pleased to find out that romance writer Bridie Sullivan has chosen his territory to visit.
Bridget Sinclair, aka Bridie Sullivan, arrives earlier than expected in the quiet Scottish village. Tired and exhausted, she isn't too pleased to find all the villagers locked away in darkened buildings. But she has a mission to accomplish, and she must do so before people discover her secret. Bridget is Fey Royalty and she must vanquish vampires.
I adored so many of the secondary characters that added depth to this story. The author's ability to spin such a creative mixture of feys and vampires within a modern day setting was addictive, and I found myself unable to stop reading until I finished it.
Twilight's Kiss is a wonderful book, and I look forward to reading many more from Marly Mathews.
Bridget Sinclair knows she has been sent to the small village for a reason. It and its people need her magical protection. While she knows Sean is a vampire, she senses he is different. There is still good within him. Finding herself attracted to him, both physically and emotionally, she knows no good can come from a love between a fairie and a vampire. But will Sean, and his loyal friends convince Bridget that she is the key to unlocking his curse? Will love have time to grow as darkness descends upon them?
Marly Mathews is a writer to watch! She has cast a spell with her deeply emotional mix of characters both human, vampire and Fey. Her skill at intertwining paranormal elements with a contemporary setting is superb. I was totally entranced and hated to finish the book.
