Seeking the truth of his tortured heritage at court, Jankyn McNachton finds something he never expected - true desire. Efrica Callan is beautiful, innocent, and possessed of a courageous heart. She spurns the men who court her dowry, but all Jankyn can offer Efrica is life in the darkness - and in his arms.

Suspecting her of murdering her husband, Callum, on their wedding night, Maev McCloskey's clan has banished her to a remote tower. There, she dreams of her dead love - and the passion they never knew in life. But soon she wonders if the seductive, mysterious Callum of her sleeping mind is real.

Raleigh’s story is the goodie in this bunch

I didn’t care enough for “Kiss of the Vampire” by Hannah Howell to stick with it so jumped to story 2 after just a couple chapters. I guess I only really like Howell’s Wherlocke series as everything else I’ve tried by her I’ve quit.

I was turned off by “His Eternal Bride” by Adrienne Basso and jumped ahead as soon as she met him outside the privy. I am not a prude but geez, were we supposed to like “slutty Elvira’s” introduction? Bleerg.

At that point I almost quit then but decided to try the Raleigh’s “To Tame the Beast” just to be able to give a full review. So glad I did. It was sweet, and has made me want to look for more by Raleigh.

The narrator didn’t grow on me so much as become inevitable, but I can’t say I’ll be deliberately seeking her out again, or that I won’t be discouraged against another book with her as narrator. I felt her accent was too heavy and overblown, trying too hard; and occasionally leant closer to Jamaica more than Scotland. I will give it to her that her old woman voice was good, and she did do better when she had better writing to work with (Raleigh’s).

I have become addicted to MacNachton Vampires😊

Some might say these stories become predictable, I have to admit I like the stories regardless.
I love that they have such happy endings.
