Lord Sancho Cordoba is haunted by
memories and continues to be tormented by a vampire hundreds
of years after first coming in contact with him. Sancho was a
regal prince in love with his beloved Isobel when she was
brutally taken from him. Having no choice but to avenge her
death, Sancho agrees to become the one thing he hates most --
a vampire. Now, years later he is ready to give up his search
for revenge. Until a woman from America reaches unwittingly
into his heart and soul and becomes the very reason Sancho
decides to continue to live. Their happiness is short lived
because the evil menace that has haunted Lord Sancho for so
many years is back and hell bent on causing more pain. Sancho
vows not this time because Christine has become more dearly
loved to him than any before.
All I can say is, “Wow!” I knew I liked
Marianne LaCroix’s writing but I had forgotten how powerful
and sensual her characters are. Sancho is tormented.
Tormented with feeling as if he failed his first wife. Then,
just when he tries to love again, he is tortured further. I
like how Christine came into his life, unsuspecting and truly
not expecting anything. That is what made their love so
special to me. They were true soul mates.
I have to hand it to Ms. LaCroix. She
took Lord Sancho and made it a truly wonderful
and engaging novel.
