A Whisper of Eternity

by Amanda Ashley

HE WILL NOT LOSE HER AGAIN

When artist Tracy Warner purchases the rambling seaside house built above Dominic St. John’s hidden lair, he recognizes in her spirit the woman he has loved countless times over the centuries.

Drawing her into the fascinating, seductive world of the vampire, he aches to believe that this time she will not refuse his Dark Gift. But when Dominic’s ancient rival appears in Sea Cliff, hungry for territory and power, Tracy becomes a pawn in a deadly game. To save her – and the passion that burns between them – Dominic must offer … A WHISPER OF ETERNITY.

Review: I started and finished this book on Saturday, June 9th, 2007. I cannot recall ever reading an Amanda Ashley novel before, but it wasn’t a bad book!

More of a contemporary romance/preternatural/paranormal kind of deal. There wasn’t much to the plot, but the story was good. I thought Tracy was a wonderful character; strong, independent, doing what she wants to do. The way she falls for Dominic, without wanting to; understanding things she didn’t want to know about – that didn’t exist – it was great to see what her mind thought.

Dominic is a vampire, one who strikes me as selfish in the beginning. But then, honestly, have you met a vamp who isn’t? My heart clenched when he decided that if Tracy wouldn’t be his, he’d end his life. Mind you, she figured that out. Sure, it made a nice story, but it was a card that shouldn’t have been played. It seemed like a “if I can’t have you, no one can” kind of deal – something to make her change her mind. Although, after two thousand years, I could understand why; it stillw as a card that shouldn’t have been played.

I thought the story was cute; I jsut wish there’d been a little more to the plot. The action in the story – while most of it was at the end – was well played out. I just thought Tracy should have been a little more pissed at the end. When you read it, you’ll understand what I mean. I’d have been pissed – not necessarily at Dominic per se, just at the situation in general. She took it way to easy for my taste. Still, not a bad romance novel. I’d recommend it for those who like straight romance.
