Venice, Italy - early 1800s
Viola has been given three months to live but she refuses to die a virgin. She travels to Venice where she wants to experience physical pleasure with a man without causing a scandal for her family. Afterwards, she plans to take her own life to ensure she exits the world painlessly and with dignity. Unfortunately, the man she meets in a disreputable club couldn’t be a worse choice for her plans.
Dante, a hedonistic vampire, saves Viola from a violent rake. To stop her from seeking out even more dangerous men to find carnal pleasures, he offers her a night of passion in his arms, only to discover she’s a virgin.
Viola flees, disdainful of the sex act and determined to end her life. Horrified, Dante stops Viola from harming herself and proceeds to deliver the pleasure he promised – one kiss and one touch at a time until she’s ready to take all of him, over and over again.
Until events force Dante’s hand ...
Another amazing read from author Tina Folsom!
Viola is diagnosed with a tumor and given only a short amount of time left to live, so instead of spending her last few weeks in her family’s lavish care and in intense pain she has decided to have one last adventure and then take her own life so that she can go out with some dignity. And her grand adventure? To travel to Venice, a place where her and her family are unknown, to loose her virginity. When her first attempt fails she decides to try again and finds a man that can make all her bedrooms dreams come true and may even be able to save her, but will they realize it too late?
Venice Vampyr: Final Affair is a beautiful story with a dynamic plot and flaming hot love scenes. In Venice Vampyr, the first novel with Raphael and Isabella’s story, Dante was seen as a kind of cold and indifferent rake. I was so pleased at how his character developed in this story and how his heart and emotions were discovered and came to light. I also thought Viola was a great match for Dante, I might not agree with her decisions but I can understand them. They are both strong characters that you can easily get wrapped up in.
Raphael, Isabella and friend Lorenzo show up, with a definitely interesting and steaming scene involving the couple. And I am certainly looking forward to Lorenzo’s story in the future. We also come into contact with some more players of the mysterious vampire slaying organization that is a continuing plot point for the series.
Love, sex, mystery, action and suspense – Tina Folsom gives it all to you in this second installment of her Venice Vampyr series!
