Immortal Obsession is a must read for all paranormal romance fans While very reminiscent of Anne Rice's vampire novels, make no mistake, it is all very different and very much original. Rago takes vampire lore and turns it on its head. I was entranced from the very first page. Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews 5 Stars When the last descendant of a French-Revolution era vampire and his mortal aristocratic lover witnesses her brother's savage murder in New York City's Central Park - and narrowly escapes her own demise - an ethereal stranger begins to draw her even deeper into a previously unimaginable world.In this gripping paranormal romance, the beautiful, young Amanda Perretti, a promising museum curator, becomes entangled with a group of French vampires who carry their eighteenth century grudges into twenty-first century New York. Desperate to find the stranger who saves her life that fateful night, Amanda pursues her brother's killer from the halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Goth clubs of the East Village. After meeting the heroic vampire who intervened on her behalf, Amanda becomes increasingly torn between the wish to preserve her cherished career and her safe, "normal" life and her growing desire for the handsome, alluring vampire Christian Du Maur . Ultimately, Amanda finds herself falling deeper into the dangerous realm of immortals, as not one but two vampires vie for her love. Full of intrigue and suspense, yet grounded in artfully drawn characters and settings, this historical love story follows the journey of the mortal yet courageous Amanda as she discovers far more about herself than she ever dreamed possible. Immortal Obsession is a great vampire book. The author's writing style reminded me a lot of Anne Rice's. The plot had me turning pages late into the night wondering what was going to happen next. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I recommend it for fans of paranormal romance. I also recommend it for Anne Rice fans.
