One magical key.
The turn of a lock.
An adventure of a lifetime.
The Skeleton Key finds those who are brave enough. Curious enough. Crazy enough. It only needs an unsuspecting hand and inconspicuous door. Magic uncoils and where the door leads, no one knows. The one way to discover the truth is to step through into a world of the exotic and untold.
If you dare to dream the impossible…
Unlock the Skeleton Key adventures.
Left with only debt and a mysterious skeleton key after her mother passes away, Lilac Martin jumps at the chance to move into Chateau du Soleil and restore it to its former beauty. It seems like the perfect job until she meets the reclusive owner Julien Lambert. Lilac keeps her distance from Julien’s icy stare, but there’s something about him that she can’t resist. His cool touch and too pale skin tell her the unthinkable–he’s a vampire–and even though she knows she should run, she can’t bring herself to leave. Recognizing the key, Julien uses it to take her back in time to the days when he was human. But he’s careful to not reveal too many of his secrets. Julien is dying and the only thing that will save him is for Lilac to accept his immortal kiss.
Liliana Rhodes is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author who writes Contemporary and Paranormal Romance. This complete Paranormal Romance novella tells the story of Lilac and Julien. It’s a beautifully written vampire story and is part of the Skeleton Key series. This is a standalone novella with an HEA, the only thing linking it to the series is the Skeleton Key. The author had great creativity when coming up with this romantic installment, her style definitely suitable for the intended audience. I enjoyed how resilient their love was, even centuries couldn’t dull it. I think it could have used a bit more intimacy while still keeping it clean. I’m recommending this incredible read to all the bleeding hearts out there, giving it a 4 out of 5 rating. This copy gifted to me by the Publisher for an honest review.
