|Plot Summary of A Whisper of Eternity|
Zebra, Feb 2004, 6.50, 352 pp.
Landscape and seascape artist Tracy Warner is not sure why she felt obsessed to buy Nightingale House overlooking the Pacific near Sea Cliff, California. However, she does purchase the old home that has been empty for five years. However, she is unaware that another house resides underneath hers. That abode belongs to two millennium year old vampire Dominic St. John who is shocked to realize that the woman above is his mate. He prays that this time she accepts his gift of eternity together because for the first time she has come to him.
As Dominic and Tracy start seeing each other, she finds herself attracted and repelled by him. However, she also sees another person, full blooded human Bryon Longstreet. Dominic is jealous and Kitana, the woman who converted him all those centuries ago, has come to claim him as she once did. Kitana will do anything to have him including killing the current reincarnation of his mate.
A WHISPER OF ETERNITY combines a reincarnation tale with a vampire romance that fans will enjoy due to a strong lead couple and a fine supporting duo. Though at times Dominic's dominant alpha personality (what do you expect of a vampire – sensitivity?) becomes overbearing, paranormal readers will appreciate the heroine's ability to keep him in line and his need to risk all to keep her safe.
