Augustus has lived a long and lonely existence for centuries with no end in sight. But when he literally stumbles upon Gregory, a drug addict who is dying, Augustus turns him to save his life thus binding their lives together. The men forge a friendship that builds over time. When Augustus and Gregory become enamored with the innocent beauty Marianna, neither men could have begun to imagine the turns their lives would take. Augustus, Gregory and Marianna are forced to make life altering decisions that could rip their world apart or find them a lasting lifetime of happiness and love.

No matter what genre author Sam Crescent is writing in, fans of this widely popular writer can count on her to weave consistently excellent, intricate and stunning stories with an intensity and extraordinary edginess that entertains. Loving a Vampire is an engrossing story about friendship, trust and love between three very different characters and although the bond between them seems unlikely, the reader is literally blown away by the dark, emotional and utterly seductive romance and the dangerous journey to find their happily ever after.

The author does an excellent job of developing her characters as well as the establishing the relationship between them for the reader to be able to feel like they are actually part of the story. The fierce turning of Marianna at the hands of Augustus when he can’t control his blood lust is portrayed is such a way that the reader feels his regrets, his heartache as well as the desire that Augustus feels for Marianna. It is always well acknowledged the bond of friendship and devotion between Gregory and Augustus. There is plenty of sexual tension and heat between Marianna, Augustus and Gregory with Marianna beginning the focal point of the relationship. The ending is purely explosive and emotionally satisfying.
