Juliann (Jules) Hume found herself pregnant at sixteen and rejected by the father and his family. She raised her child, Beth, by herself. Now in her late thirties, Beth is an adult. Jules works as a graphic artist at a law firm and Beth works at a restaurant called the Dive. Jules first saw Ian Kincaid at the Dive. As soon as their eyes met, it was an instant attraction and when they touched it was like electricity shot through her.

For months, Jules and Ian dated and not once would he do anything but kiss. He only saw her at night. Beth who broke the news to Jules that Ian was a vampire. Beth is dating Cameron who works at the Dive and apparently Beth could not be glamoured like every other human who left the club. The nights were when vampires came and she saw what was going on. Cameron confessed everything, but Ian has yet to reveal what he is.

There was always a legend in Jules’s family that magic ran in their family and that they were descendants of a Medieval Scottish King. Jules never believed in any of it, but she was about to have her life changed. She has always had premonitions and they always came true. Now she has dreams of Ian, but at times she feels they are more memories than dreams. She accepts that Ian is a vampire and loves him in spite of that. However, when he begins to refer to her as his lost Queen, she finds that hard to swallow. She questions whether his feelings are for her or for someone he knew in the past.

When Jules is kidnapped by another vampire claiming he wants her power, she has no idea what he is talking about. Although she does have premonitions, does that mean she has magical abilities? Ian saves her, but her life is definitely in danger and she begins to learn more and more about her and Ian. Why does Ian claim he loves her but refuses to sleep with her? Does she have powers that have not been revealed yet? Is she really Ian’s long lost Queen?

The characters in this book were wonderful and the story was filled with surprises and suspense. From the moment I started this book I couldn’t put it down because I was as interested in finding out the truth as Jules was. I was not disappointed.
