For close to three thousand years the imposing, impossibly handsome Santo Notte has fought in armies across the world and battled his own, more personal enemies. Of all the places he might expect to encounter his life mate, a quiet corner of upstate New York doesn’t seem likely. But as soon as he makes contact with history professor Petronella Stone, while hunting down a suspected rogue immortal, he knows that she will be the greatest adventure of his eternal life.
He expects her to be surprised, confused, even overwhelmed. What he doesn’t expect is that Pet has a secret history of her own. There’s no mistaking the mind-blowing, mutual pleasure they share. But as Pet struggles to protect her nephew from a danger lurking too close to home, Santo realizes there’s another threat to her safety—him. And claiming their passionate future will be impossible until he leaves his past behind, forever…

“A mortal could not survive that kind of blood loss,” he pointed out. “Yet there was no body.”
“You think Pet fought off an immortal?” Julius asked with surprise as they stepped out of the hall.
Santo paused at the end of the kitchen and cast one more glance over the mess.
“There is not even a blood trail,” he pointed out. “Just arterial spray on the counters and refrigerator, and a small amount
of blood on the floor.”
“And more on Pet,” Julius murmured, looking down at her.
“Yet Marguerite says all she has is a bump or two on the head,” Santo growled.
“Damn,” Julius breathed with realization. “You are right. That little girl fought off an immortal.”
Santo grunted, and peered down at the petite woman in his arms.
“And she took a round out of the bastard too,” Julius said now, sounding like a proud papa.
Grunting again, Santo turned and headed for the entry door.
They were silent as they left the apartment and started up the hall toward the elevators where Marguerite and Parker were
waiting, and then Julius said, “A word of advice, nephew.”
“Sì?” Santo asked.
“Do not anger your little life mate there, if you can help it.”
Une histoire enlevante et pleine d'humour. J'ai tout simplement adoré. Par contre, j'aurais aimé que le Dr. Dressler fasse une apparition pour mieux le détester...
