Release date : February 29, 2012
Genre : Paranormal Romance
Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundreds years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.
Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.
While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.
Caressed by Night by Amanda Greene is the second novel in the Rulers of Darkness Series and I have to say it’s another fabulous book. It’s a little different from the first novel, because while Caressed by Moonlight was set the 1800’s, this novel was set in the modern day; but it definitely had the same vibe.
The main characters Dimitri Arsov and Kerstyn Ingmar are an amazing couple. Dimitri is one of the first vampires ever made and was thought dead for centuries. Betrayed by his second in command, he had to find a way to reclaim his throne and deal with this traitor. After waiting centuries to sets his trap, he meets beautiful Kerstyn Ingmar and realizes she is the mate he has been waiting for. He knows this will complicate things, but he cannot ignore his destiny.
Dimitri is definitely one of the most powerful vampires alive, but he keeps his powers to himself. I love that about a man, yes he is powerful but doesn’t show it unless when it’s absolutely needed. The way he show Kerstyn what he is and how he feels about him is so amazing. Kerstyn in just the right heroine for him, she is smart, curious and definitely not afraid of him. She accepts him just the way he is and nothing less.
I love the fact that we saw Dorian, Victoria and Falcon back from the first novel. Those three stole my heart from the first moment and it’s good to see how they doing. I have to say that I see some potential characters who deserve their own book; Silvie who’s Kerstyn best friend and also a witch. Gabriel, who’s an outcaste vampire but has a heart of gold, Gannon and of course Hadrian who’s another ruler and finally decided to take matters into his own hands and start living again.
Miss Greene has written another amazing novel with great characters, fabulous storyline and a great world setting. It made me want to be a part of a world, where no normal living being wants to live in.
I cannot wait to see who’s going to be in the next novel, I have my wishes; now let’s hope they will come true.
I was given this book to read in exchange of a honest review from the author Amanda Greene.
