BLOOD ON SILK
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Vampire-human romances are ubiquitous right now, and unfortunately Treanor’s contribution to the subgenre does little to set itself apart, other than a handful of novel twists on the vampire origin story and the notion that the older the vampire, the harder it is to kill them. The narrative makes several attempts to establish a mystery, which slows the story down rather than propelling it forward, and the central relationship relies on conven-tion rather than character to drive the romance.
Elizabeth Silk is researching vampire legends for her dissertation when, following a lead, she stumbles into an ancient crypt and unwittingly opens the stone sarcophagus inside. Out steps Saloman, a powerful ancient vampire who had been staked three centuries ago. They are now bound together by blood and lust, and Elizabeth must question where her loyalties lie.
