Cian DeMarco, a sexy, rockstar billionaire vampire has lived in San Francisco's prestigious Cliff Side neighborhood in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean for seventy years. Happily—or so he thought. Until the rare beauty that is Magdalena De la Rosa sits down at one of the front-row tables in Club Royal where he and his band perform once a week.
Magdalena De la Rosa has it all—Bachelor's degree in journalism, a job she loves in California, a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco, and a dream guy. Except her boyfriend lives and works in Sacramento—an hour and a half drive from the city Magdalena has always fantasized about living in. All her dreams change, however, when she and her girlfriend find their way into an upscale nightclub and she's suddenly swept off her feet by the lead singer of that night's performing rock band, The Lost Boys.
Sparks ignite between the two until a threat that was thought to no longer exist returns to wreak havoc on Cian's and Magdalena's lives. Will the temptation to be together outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe from harm?
A stand-alone book. The first in the all-new Immortal Hearts of San Francisco series. 18+ due to adult content.
Vampire books are one of my always go-to’s. This one kept me entertained and guessing at who would be paranormal and who was just a human. There was not a lot of surprises as to how the book would go. I could see where the characters would head and who they would head there with. Yet, I could not put the book down. I started it one morning before I went to work and stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it. I devoured the book and cannot wait for the next book.
Take away the vampire part (which I would never do) and you get a love story. This is the story of a 220 year old man seeing a 20 year old woman in a bar and knowing that he had to be with her. Cian is a perfect gentleman. He knows that he will not be good for Mags yet he cannot stay away from her. He treats Mags like a queen and does everything he can to keep her safe and happy. Yet, the story is not just a love story. You have to take into account the bad vampires, the werewolves, and of course the witch. The twists and turns make this a great vampire story.
If paranormal is your thing then this is the book for you. It was certainly the book for me.
"5 vampire fangy stars!!! I can’t even put into enough words to say how much I fell in love with this book. The story was captivating and I was sucked (no pun intended) in!!"- Alpha Book Club "Cian DeMarco is a 10 on the hotness scale. I had to keep fanning myself countless times. I fell under his spell right from the first chapter and was helpless to stop it. The steamy scenes with him left me breathless and of course wanting more. Not only is he a bad boy rocker and vampire, but he is also a man with depth and an inner pain that haunts him. He is definitely book boyfriend material and one I will never forget." - Reading For Fun "I am blown away by this book. I am so obsessed with Cian and Mags. The perfect combination of a sexy, dark brooding rocker and the sweet lovable girl, throw in the fact that the rocker is also a Vampire and you have the formula for a perfect book. This did not disappoint!"- Momma Says Read
