Gabriel/Giovanni and Sara Jaynes undying love!!
When Gabriel finally throws caution to the wind and makes love to Sara the first time.
Embrace the night was a good romance story. A story of soul mates. Giovanni Ognibene is a vampire who discovers a child left alone and crying. He further discovers she is cripple and abandon with no food or water nothing to help her. He takes the child Sara Jayne Duncan to Sisters of Eternal Mercy Orphanage. Sara names her rescuer Gabriel after the angle. Gabriel watches over her and provides for her as she grows into a lovely women but she still can't walk. The orphanage catches fire and Sara is horribly burned and is dying. Gabriel cannot let her go so he risk giving her some of his blood after he takes her away from the orphanage. It heals Sara and also, heal her so she can now walk.
Sara has always wanted to be a ballerina so he sends her to France and he makes sure she is well provided for. After a 5 year separation Gabriel can no longer live without just seeing her. Here's were the real love story begins.
The story opens with Giovanni/Gabriel standing at the grave site of his wife Sara Jayne she dies at age 75 then Giovanni goes to ground beside her for 50 years and when he awakes the world is quite different its 1975 and he sees a women crying seating in the park. Her husband parents and baby were killed in a car accident. Her name is Sara and she has the same blond hair as his Sara. This modern day Sara also, has vivid dreams of Giovanni and his wife Sara but she doesn't know why she is having this mysterious dreams as if she herself is the Sara that lived them.
The reason I gave the story 4 stars instead of 5 was because I felt the author may have written two heroines and didn't know how to make them one being without the reincarnation part which made the love story a bit disjointed. However it was very well written and I enjoyed and liked both Sara's I just which they could have been melded into one being and I didn't like the fact that they couldn't have children together.
If you love vampires and old world romantics. Then this is the book for you. Very long and the love scenes were done with class.
It took me on a journey with them. Very sad. You felt for "Gabriel" the vampire who all he wanted was love and Sara's touch.
I fell in love with him.
I highly recommend this, if you are a romantic. If your looking for the darker side of vampires this is not the book for you. Although you will be chased, buried alive (for Sara) and fight your way out of some very intense moments.
Can't wait to check out the other book from this author.
