Sarelle McGarran, Sar to her friends, is recently widowed.  She lives alone in a rural area with her dogs and cats until one night she sees a truck on her neighbor’s property .  When she follows the truck, she finds Danial badly wounded and takes him to her house.  While there she discovers he is a vampire but she still helps him heal.  Once Danial wakes up the sparks start flying and Sar and Danial each test the boundaries of the other as their attraction grows. 

While this book did not keep me on the edge of my seat there were some interesting twists to vampire society and the vampire/human relationship.  I did find it a little off-putting that Sar accepted that Danial was a vampire not much effort.  After she discovers he is a vamp, she almost forces him to bite her when he is unconscious, then accepts that he almost kills her and then spends the next night watching television with him.  That is a little too unbelievable even for fiction. 

Aside from the prologue, the whole book is told from Sar’s perspective so there is a lot that is unknown.  We get bits and pieces about the king of the vampires, Devlin, but Sar doesn’t know all that much about him since Danial doesn’t share.  I would have liked to have learned more about Danial too.  Fox Hall left many questions about him unanswered and I would like to think there is a sequel in the future so we can find out what will happen with Sar and Danial.
