Review: Night Walker

Where are my nipples?
After a failed engagement, Kate has returned to her hometown to seek solace in her old friends and family-home. But it's only a few weeks before she meets Calisto - a sexy, mysterious stranger who sets her heart racing. Calisto is alluring and strangely familiar. But Kate hasn't healed from her broken heart and thinks it's too soon to try to love again.

Calisto can't believe it when he lays eyes on Kate. She is the reincarnation of Tala, his lost love... the reason he became an immortal. He has been waiting centuries for her return and will do anything to have her love again.

The story flips back and forth between the present day and the past.  So not only do we get to see a relationship unfold between Calisto and Kate but we also see the horrific events that lead to their initial separation, Calisto's transformation into a Night Walker, and his quest for revenge.

The path to happiness isn't easy for Kate and Calisto.  She has no idea of their past or what he is. Beyond that, there is a crazed monk, stalking them for his own gain. But despite the roadblocks, the love story is really quite lovely. There is something to be said for a hero with so much yearning and devotion. The story is very contained to a small cast of characters and it gives it a more intimate feel. And after so much loss, it seems criminal to have these two spend even one more minute apart.

The book has a definite resolution. But the door is left open on the idea that there may be more story to tell.

I enjoyed it. A little more than 4 stars.

It drives me nuts when they airbrush the nipples off the cover models! They did that with Gena Showalter's Lord of the Vampires and Larissa Ione's Passion Unleashed too.

Never noticed the nipple removal. As much as I pay attention to cover hotness that is surprising. Great review. I'm looking forward to reading this.
