About book #1:
Venice, early 1800s
Isabella Tenderini, a wealthy merchant’s widow rescues a stranger from drowning in one of Venice’s canals. And how does the man repay her selfless act? By kissing her – her, a respectable woman.
Not only is Raphael di Santori grateful for his life being saved, he would also like to thank his rescuer very intimately – more intimately than decorum allows. But then, Raphael has never been one to play by the rules – as a vampire he doesn’t have to.
