Serge’s long vigil outside of the villa
where the soldiers keep his lover imprisoned has finally
ended. Now, if he can only regain some sort of relationship
with Valmont, Serge will be happy – even if it means watching
Valmont find happiness with someone else…
Valmont is finally free in body but the
guilt he feels keeps him away from pursuing Serge. After all
that Serge suffered in Valmont’s name there is no way that
Valmont will ever ask Serge to forgive him and take him back
as his lover.
Philippe has been sent to help with the
restoration of Valmont’s home and to help reunite Serge and
Valmont. Bringing them together is easier than anyone
suspected, but Philippe feels like he is leaving his heart
behind when he thinks of leaving Valmont’s home.
Valmont’s Trinity is an
entertaining vampire romance. Serge, Valmont and Philippe are
interesting characters that leave you wanting to get to know
them better. Most of the story takes place over several days
where the relationship between Valmont and Serge is renewed
with little attention to what drove them apart and how that
affected their lives. Meanwhile, Philippe “falls in love”
with Serge after one sexual encounter and almost no other
interaction which makes all the emotional reactions by
Philippe feel shallow, hard to believe or plain melodramatic.
Also, while this book is noted as a stand alone, I felt that I
missed elements that would have improved my reading experience
by not having read the previous book in the series. All in
all, Valmont’s Trinity has many sexy, sensual
moments but it fails to be emotionally engaging.
Valmont’s Trinity is a read for a day you are looking
for a distraction from everyday life.
