Everything is wonderful until they finally meet their elusive neighbor. The girls decide to introduce themselves but Sam realizes that there is something odd about Mortimer and his friends. Her sisters start to act strange around the men and Sam notices that Mortimerís eyes seem to glow almost like a night predator.

Hoping that this will be a quick trip, he comes face to face with Samantha. Being a vampire he is able to use mind control and read a mortalís thoughts so that his presence will not be known. He finds that he is not able to with Sam and realizes that she could potentially be his life mate, the life mate that he has been searching for almost 800 years. While she may not be exactly whatís he has fantasized her to be, he is drawn to her and wants to get to know her.
Well I think I have found a new author. Lynsay Sands is such a great writer. This book is a page turner from start to finish. The way she describes the characters is so believable and I love how she incorporates the Atlantis myth into the background of the vampires. The sparks between Mortimer and Sam are electric and she turns out to be more than Mortimer could have ever dreamed his life mate to be. Lynsay really paints the picture of the perfect guy (flaws and all). I love the fact that she makes the women in her books very strong and able to hold their own with the guys. So many romance novels paint the women as needing to be rescued, but Lynsay does just the opposite. This book is a great addition to any romance novel library.
