Alexander Barrington flees his tyrannical uncle for the open seas where he becomes a ruthless pirate who turns vampire.
Captured and sentence to hang, a fate he must avoid to keep his vampire self hidden, a reprieve comes if he rescues Lady Lavinia Sinclair from the French pirates and returns her to her fiancé in England.
Alexander falls for the woman who makes him feel human and alive, but can he really have her without exposing what he is – a thief, the undead? The damned? Refusing to taint her innocence any further, he erases her memory of him and vanishes into the night but can he really exist without her?
A sexy swashbuckling adventure with a paranormal twist!
To avoid death by hanging, Alexander Barrington, known as the infamous Captain Sword embarks on a mission to rescue Lady Lavinia Sinclair from the French pirates who kidnapped her. What he doesn’t bargain for is falling for the beautiful woman he is sworn to protect. Lavinia might be this pirate’s ticket to freedom, but it’s his heart is what is soon on on the line when she awakens forbidden desires in Alexander that are too strong to ignore.
Her Eternal Rogue brings two of my favorite things together, vampires and pirates! The story starts off with plenty of action, pirates and smexiness. Alexander and Lavinia are instantly drawn to each other and waste no time heating up the pages! I was a little surprised to see the level of passion so early on in the book and while I admit it was beyond sexy between these two, I would have enjoyed more flirty banter and sexual tension as a foundation to their developing romance, instead of the insta-love we’re given.
Livinia isn’t my favorite kind of heroine, she’s demure and proper which goes with the time, but I wanted a bit more spark from her when she is in the company of Alexander. I don’t blame the woman for falling into the arms of the sexy vampire pirate but her constant thoughts of her fiance back home made me question how she claimed to love Alexander at times. I honestly thought she couldn’t redeem herself in my eyes and then she proved me wrong by becoming the independent leading lady, halfway through the book when she decides she’s willing to fight for her love. Her character lacked consistency for me but Livinia turned out to be stronger than I expected.
The hero, Alexander is every romance reader’s fantasy! He’s an equal mix of a bad boy and gentleman. This rogue pirate is tall, dark, handsome and dangerous. Alexander is a hero with somewhat of a dark past which comes back to haunt him as the story progresses. I instantly loved his character and how he struggles with being a vampire in a world of humans. He will steal your heart with his protective nature and have you reaching for some ice with his sexiness in the bedroom! I never questioned his love for Lavinia and rooted for him the entire time.
Whether you’re a lover of rakes or like your heroes with a dark side, Her Eternal Rogue delivers a thrilling adventure with suspense, secrets, romance, heartbreak and yes, even villains! The author excels at torturing her characters (you cruel woman! <3), but the intrigue will keep you turning the pages to uncover the mystery. Ms. Danna has crafted a delightful tale that will leave you swooning and wanting a vampire pirate of your very own!
Hmm I stopped reading about pirates years ago, and a vampire pirate? How does he steer his ship and stay out of the sun all the time?
