Carly Penn is thrilled when her older brother, Joe, marries her dear friend, Kaylee, with the help of the 1Night Stand service. Now, looking for a final bout of passion to carry her through as terminal cancer steals her life, she’s turned to Madame Eve for herself. She doesn’t expect a happy ending, just a single night to remember as she faces the end of her days.
Vampire Agoston Barabás was forced to watch his true love, Dorika, murdered two hundred earlier, and clings to her dying promise to return to him. He takes one night at a time, never loving or becoming involved with another as he waits for his lover to find him. When he meets his date from 1Night Stand, he’s shocked to discover she carries the soul of his Dorika and the heart of a woman he could love.
As their fates collide in passionate lovemaking, Agoston offers Carly an unexpected option—live or die together. Dare she risk eternity with a vampire, even if his tender touch brings her a greater joy than she has ever known?
After seeing the wonderful job Madame Evangeline did in matching her brother to his mate, Carly longs for such happiness even if it is for just one night. Now that she is fighting for her life she wants to experience love or at least something like it one last time before she goes. Little does she know that her date for the night is a vampire who is in search of his love that he so painfully lost so many years ago. Will this date be what Carly expects or will she find more than what she is looking for?
This was a sweet and romantic read. Carly is such a strong woman you cannot do anything but love her. She quickly endears herself to the reader. Gus is a wonderful man. He pined for his old lover but when he meets Carly he falls for her just as she is and is more than ready to do what he can to keep her. I enjoyed watching the attraction that the two have turn into so much more. I loved the banter between the two. Watching Gus shows his feelings and how much he wants Carly was a beautiful read. I also enjoyed how this story was connected to another story in the series. If you follow this series it makes for a nice touch. I enjoyed my visit into this world and cannot wait to visit again.
