When eighteen-year-old Winter McCall is offered a chance to leave her life of poverty behind on the streets of London, she reluctantly accepts, and moves to a remote part of the south west of England.

Here she takes up the job as housekeeper to the young and handsome, yet mysterious, Thaddeus Blake.

Warned that he has some curious habits, Winter soon realises that not all is as it firsts appears at the remote mansion where she now lives and works.
Blind to the real danger that she is in, Winter finds herself becoming attracted to Thaddeus.

With nowhere to run and no one to turn to, she slowly succumbs to his strange requests. But none of them are as strange as his requests for her to stand each night in the moonlight.

Winter (Winnie) has been on the streets since she left her foster home, relying on herself for years. She’s captured the attention of a wealthy stranger who wants to offer her a job and chance to start a new life. However, Thaddeus is an eccentric man who has a few odd requests for Winnie that he requests she does including cooking and cleaning. 

The more time that she spends with Thad the more she starts to question his motives, after all, she looks similar to his deceased wife and even wants her to dress like she used to. What happens when the killers that have been moving across the country arrive at the doorstep while Thaddeus is away. How will Winnie handling learning his true motives and that her life is in danger by something she didn’t even know existed?

I like Winnie she an interesting character who is willing to take a chance risk it all on the hopes of being able to start a new life. I like how she and Thad have a connection and even though he’s keeping secrets he shows her part of himself. I think Thad work’s he’s a good guy with good intentions even if he is using Winnie she is benefiting from her time with him. 

I’ve had this one on my kindle for a while but I’m not sure why I never gave it a chance before as I’m a huge shifter fan. The concept of the vampires is unique they have some typical vampire traits as well as a little different. This isn’t your typical vampire romance instead we have a sweet romance tossed in with supernatural bad guys and secrets that could change it all. I like the characters it was easy to connect with Winnie as well as Thad. This is my first novel by the author so I was a little unsure but I found his storytelling captivating. I’m looking forward to finishing the series because I have to know how it’s going to play out. A perfect mix of mystery, horror, and just enough romance to leave you wanting more.
