Raven Wood’s vampyre prince has returned, pledging his love and promising justice for every wrong done to her. In the wake of their reunion, Raven is faced with a terrible decision—allow the Prince to wreak vengeance against the demons of her past, or persuade him to stay his hand. But there is far more at stake than Raven’s heart…

A shadow has fallen over the city of Florence. Ispettor Batelli will not rest until he uncovers Raven’s connection to the theft of the priceless art from the Uffizi Gallery. And while the Prince hunts a traitor who sabotages him at every turn, he finds himself the target of the vampyres’ mortal enemy.

As he wages a war on two fronts, he will need to keep his love for Raven secret, or risk exposing his greatest weakness…

“I think all this deep conversation is because of the view,” she blurted out. “The beauty of the city makes people reflect on life and time and secret desires.”

William chuckled and pressed a kiss to her temple. “What do you desire, little bird?”

“The steadfast love of a good man.”

His arm about her tightened. “I am not a good man. I’m not a man at all. But I love you and my love is certainly steadfast.”

She closed her eyes and leaned against him.

“I admire you.” He spoke into her hair.


“Because you’re principled and you hold fast to those principles even when it’s difficult. You’re noble.”

“I feel awkward and overwhelmed more than anything.”

“That is not how you appear to me.” He lifted her chin. “Knowing what I know about your character and your heart, I’ve never seen anyone more beautiful.”

Love the excerpt! I cannot wait for this book! I loved The Raven. It’s torture waiting until February for The Shadow.

I’ve read The Prince, but haven’t read any of the others in the series. I loved the Gabriel’s Inferno series!

Thank you for sharing the giveaway, am going to try my luck. I love SR and his books, he is an incredible author and human being.

I read the Gabriel’s Inferno books but haven’t read this series yet! Thanks for the opportunity and your review!

I’ve always been fascinated by Florence, and this book sounds wonderful!! Thank you for the chance to win a copy!
