Blurb: On a cold December night, Union infantry captain, Jonathan Hackett is pinned down on the Fredericksburg battlefield trying to escape Confederate fire. But a creature of the night, more dangerous than any enemy soldier, stalks him. Jon must fight for his life as well as his soul.
Maddie Emery has lost everything dear to her. Her husband and parents have passed on and her brothers are off fighting in the Confederate Army. She's alone, trying single-handedly to hold onto her family's farm, when a Yankee soldier collapses across her stoop.
Maddie and Jon form a bond of love and desire, but as Jon exhibits signs of becoming the creature he fears most, is their love enough to fight off the evil of a centuries old vampire bent on destroying them?

Review: This story had a wonderful premise, likable characters and a solid plot. The beginning started off strong but the middle sagged. There just really wasn't much pop so even though it started strong, by the time I got to the end I really didn't care about the story anymore.

Toward the end, the setting for the last love scene plagued me a bit. Had I been Maddie I am not sure I would have wanted to engage in a love making session in the same room with the vampire ashes of the monster who just tried to kill me and my love, but that's just me.
