Night Walker by Lisa Kessler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her...
Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.
She's haunted by dreams of her own death...
After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she's drawn to him in ways she doesn't understand.
They've waited in the shadows for centuries...
Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies re-emerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he's ever loved again.
It seemed to take me ages to really get into the book, but mostly that was because i was distracted by real life and i found myself re-reading several pages to refresh my memory.
From the very beginning i felt involved with the characters and the story. I really enjoyed how the narrative moved from modern-day to where the story really began.
There was so many points in the book when i was literally begging Calisto to tell Kate who he was, who she was and what they meant to each other. Needless to say I was very pleased when she finally remembered/realised.
I wont say any more because I don't want to inadvertently spoil it for others, but i will say this; I have read many vampire stories of late.. and this is not like any of them. I would definitely recommend this to a friend, and I am keen to read the next installment.
