Okay - this book had potential: hero is a hot vampire and heroine is a witch. However, it seemed the the heroine only used her powers when there was something the author wanted to do that she couldn't explain any other way. There was quite a bit of mind-reading, but it wasn't at all consistent. The hero's Scottish dialect was limited to the word "ye". And, honestly? There wasn't much original here, and the writing pales in comparison to Ward and Cole. So, was I entertained? Yes, mildly, during t...
I am not sure how else to describe this book other than amazing. Vampires in the in the highlands of Scotland in the 17th century is sure to be a good read for fans of historically erotic paranormal romances. Julia definitely does not disappoint with this somewhat tragic story of a Scottish warrior turned vampire and his reincarnated wife two centuries after her death. After Darius' wife finds out he has been turned into a vampire she is shocked so horribly it leads to her death and to the death...
The secondary love story was more compelling than the primary and it was m/m (though not too explicit). Am I going to have to make a bookshelf entitled 'almost erotic'?
I read this book about ten years ago and remembered loving it, so I decided to reread. I didn’t like it this time around! So disappointing ☹️
okay. first of all, i have to really admit that what really drew me in was the beautiful cover. nice artwork, and probably a really good marketing team went into this. okay.secondly. the back cover read really nicely, and it sounded like a good premise for a good story. that's two strikes so far, what could possibly go wrong?the answer is, almost everything.racking up the faults now. the concept is surely nice and sounds good when wrapped up, but the execution is poor. this, like lkh, is bogged
Darius MacLeod, a soldier of loyalty, bravery and valor, fought his foes until the very end. A man not afraid of death who braved its terrors daily, and in the end, accepted his own calm surrender to this heartless beast. To MacLeod's great surprise when the moment was upon him, the heartless beast carried the face of masculine beauty and agelessness, and he felt nothing like a cold nothingness. This was the start of an entirely new life for Darius, and one in which he shared with very few. A
This book was better than I expected esp after I read some negative Goodreads reviews. I liked the simple story line and spark between H and h. Not to mention all those hot scenes. Very suitable to read in a raining night.
Honestly I’m pretty sure I picked up this book, read the back blurb and thought it would have great potential. The overall premise was good and could have been so much more developed. The bedroom scenes would have been easier to read if I wasn’t laughing at the descriptions...”her sheath”, “circling her button”!! I mean come on! It’s sad that writers like this are taken seriously. It’s sad that I read this.
I expected more from Julia Templeton than I got. It was ok.
With so many paranormal romances being published, it's hard to find plots and characters that are original and fresh. Julia Templeton’s Return to Me is fresh, due mainly to the secondary romance of the hero’s homosexual brother. Templeton has taken a chance here - and it works. Darius MacLeod, a 14th century Scot, would have died fighting in the Battle of Bannockburn if not for his vampire creator Remont. Remont changes him at the urging of his lover, Darius’s brother Demetri. Darius eventually
Gabrielle Fairmont has a miserable life since her uncle arranges an unwanted betrothal to a man with a violent past. She has to find a way to escape her betrothal and marriage in order to save her own life. Gabrielle knows she has to rely on her gifts of mind reading and her second sight, and what she sees in her betrothal’s mind isn’t something she wants to experience first handed. Then one night during a ball she meets gorgeous Darius MacLeod and feels the huge attraction between them.Darius M...
I had high expectations for this book. Sadly I was let down. The writing style we good but the story was more of a romance than a vampire/witch story. That was disappointing because I expected more imagination in this book after reading the book description. I was under the impression that Gabrielle and Darius were the main characters but as I read the book it seemed to me that Remont took the spot light from them. Witchery was used very little, there was no real vampire attacks, All the love sc...
I got to page 55 and just started to feel annoyed by the story. A vampire whose pregnant wife dies tragically and he feels he will never meet anyone like her again. Great premise, right? No. The wife died because she was running from him with fear and loathing after he confessed that he was turned into a vampire when he was mortally wounded at war. Why would I love someone like that. Then 5 centuries later he meets his dead wife's doppelganger who is marrying a terrible man and it's like love at...
First off, I would simply like to say that "Possessioness" is not a word and has no business in a published book.Having said that, this book has a good story line but terrible writing. This book had so much potential, I thought. I feel like sometimes the author goes out of her way to be raunchy. And would someone, please, get her a thesaurus. There are more than 3 words for the male genitalia.Have to finish reading it for my own satisfaction of knowing the end, but will never read it again.
This book had lots of potential but the storyline was overshadowed by all of the sexual encounters between the two main characters. I feel the author could have given the reader more of a back-story on the characters. I love a good paranormal romance with steamy scenes but this one didn't make it to my favorites list.
Not bad for me, was not expecting certain things in this book (sexually) but i did enjoy the read....getting into the vampire books so this is getting my feet wet. But i still found it an interesting read. Both characters were interesting to read and i thought it was good story telling. Love Julia Templeton story telling of Historical romance.
Read this one in two days. It's very... erotic. It's written really well and has a decent story line, involving vampires. I liked that there were two "bi/gay" vampire men who were in love with each other. I enjoyed it thoroughly and it was a fast read.
I did like this book. So, not what I was expecting when I got the book. :) If you like murder and some sexy action, this is a good book. The ending was pretty much my only let down. But still enjoyed it.
Read this books a few year ago. It was an entertaining read. I started it on the plane flying back to Florida and was 90% done with it when my plane landed. I was so into the story I had to finish it that day.
This was more erotic than most books I've read but I did enjoy the setting and find vampire tales exciting.
Not sure why I keep reading this author. She seems to have a decent fan base and the synopsizes always sound really interesting but the books lack the plot I desire when I read.
I read this book in two days. It was a bit racy in parts but had a good storyline and was a quick and easy read :)
Hot, hot, hot! Vampires and everything.
Even the hot sex scenes and my unreasonable obsession with bad vampire books couldn't' save this one.Big fat waste of my time.
The story was so inticeing I couldn't put it down. A second chance to be with the one you love is the life can offer.
Cheesy, steamy and predicable. The story of Remont was much more interesting - at least it had depth. I'm going to go back reading Outlander now as I regret having put it down to read this.
Typical historical romance with vampires and quite a bit of sex. Not my usual preferences, but still a pleasant read.
I just could not get into this. I gave it 120 pages. Not enough depth to the characters.
I hate when I go in with such high expectations. Note to self: Stop doing that Diana!....Full Review: http://booksandcoffeecups77.blogspot....
