Publisher’s Description: Clara Winters, a non-practicing witch, has been living the life of an old woman in the body of a twenty-two-year-old ever since fated to everlasting life in 1919. With the unexpected death of her beloved aunt, the easy life on her southern plantation is over. Grief awakens hiding ghosts—in the form of age-old magic and thirsty vampires.

Long ago, powerful magic entangled and stole Clara’s great love, Wesley Russell, when he became a vampire. Wesley rises from banishment, forcing Clara to resist the temptation of a renewed life together by reminding him of the consequences that come to those who defy the spell of the Midnight Circle.

Mysterious mountain visions and guidance from her deceased aunt lead Clara on a journey to friendship and love, reintroducing her to the passions of youth. But as evil lurks and the Circle shows signs of unraveling, Clara becomes desperate to escape the spell without harming those she holds dear.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Likes: For being a romance and a vampire novel this is a surprisingly clean read! Every once and a while it is refreshing to read a romance that shows the beauty of love all on its own without sexual content. Love is the central theme in this book whether it is familial, friendly, or romantic. The bonds between characters are well written.

badge3v4Dislikes: While the book is eloquently written, it has a very slow pace that often had my mind wandering to other books. The writing style just didn’t sit well with me.

Rating: This really is a beautiful book, but I can’t overlook the slow pace, and for that reason, I give it three roses.

Other recommendations…

If you love vampire romance, check out these reads: The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause, Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost, and The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice.
