Found this at my OBCZ, unregistered.

From the cover -
It was the nightmare home of occult rites of ravishment, where beauty was made to serve evil, and the jaws of horror closed over innocence.
It was the decadent playground of an aristocratic society riddled with rumors about the handsome, charming man any woman would die to love.
It was here that the irresistible Count Saint Germain and the exquisite Madelaine De Montalia came together. He, doomed to live forever and always to kill the one he loved, struggling now against the purest passion and most gnawing temptation he had ever known. She, desperately enamored of this compelling vampire who refused to grant her his ultimate act of love, and threatened by a fate that made the kiss of death seem sweet.

I enjoyed this first book in the series, although I think I did enjoy The Palace (2nd in the series) a bit more. This book was shorter, but didn't have as much of a historical background as part of the story - took place in Paris during the reign of Louis XV. This story had more horror elements to it than The Palace, but it wasn't too graphic.

This will be going out on a bookray. Hope you enjoy it!

Received this in yesterday's mail. I'm in the middle of another book, but I will get to this as soon as possible. Looking forward to reading this one. I'll journal more when I have finished it.

Enjoyed this book very much. I really enjoyed the rich descriptions of the people, dress, society, entertainment and morays of France in the 1700’s.

I enjoyed the letters sprinkled throughout the book. At first they were distracting and difficult. But, I realized how they added to period favor of the book, and then I really enjoyed them. Things moved slower in that time and people wrote letters. You gained enormous amount of character information, cultural information and moral information from each letter.

The book was light on the Vampire story side. But, I did expect that since I had read his second book. I wish I had read this one first – but, that’s just me – I love to read series in order. I checked my library and I found references to 15 books in this series – with the characters of St. Germain and/or Madeline. Also, they move all over the world in the series. I just could not figure out which is the 3rd book in the series. I will be looking for the next book. Anybody know of a bookring for the 3rd book?

Got through a bookring. Pyan asked to be skipped.
I read about 1/2 of this book before I realized I was having trouble keeping the names straight.

Am sending along to next in line Czerk. I guess I'm just not in the mood for Gothic Romance/Mystery...

Journal Entry 12 by Czersk from Roscoe, Minnesota USA on Saturday, September 17, 2005
Oh, this book looks like so much fun! I can't wait to read it. Thanks everyone!

Journal Entry 13 by Czersk from Roscoe, Minnesota USA on Monday, September 26, 2005
I just can't do it. I'm sorry for giving up, but I just can't bear all of the flouncy court life in a vampire novel, especially since I have so little time to read-- every minute is precious and cannot be squandered by a book that I don't care for. I'll pass this on to Zarylia who, I hope, can appreciate it more than I could.

Thank you for the opportunity MaryZee.

I'm terribly sorry. Czersk, being the responsible BookCrosser that she is, passed the book on to me a very long time ago, and it quickly got lost in the craziness that is my world right now. I sincerely apologize and will read the book very soon. Thanks!

Journal Entry 15 by Zarylia from Saint Paul, Minnesota USA on Sunday, January 15, 2006
St. Paul/MN/USA - I can't say that I am in love with the book, but it was a decent read and kind of a fun fluff book. It was a bit gruesome at times and rather dark, but not too terribly challenging. One of my pet peeves about the book is so foolish, but it kept coming up and just aggravated me. It was the fact that Yarbro was always mentioning Saint Germain's short stature. Now, logically this makes sense because people keep getting taller, but it simply did not fit with the tall and dashing picture I had of him in my head. Anyway, thanks for the opportunity to read this book. I will be passing it on to Suebo as soon as I get an address.
