He was Carpathian, a species as old as time. He could shift shape and soar high, run with the wolves, yet without light to his darkness, he could so easily give in to the whispers of temptation, the call for power and turn wholly evil--to become the undead, as many of his kind had chosen to... read more (warning: may contain spoilers)
He was Carpathian, a species as old as time. He could shift shape and soar high, run with the wolves, yet without light to his darkness, he could so easily give in to the whispers of temptation, the call for power and turn wholly evil--to become the undead, as many of his kind had chosen to do. He traveled the world, hunting the vampire, seeking to maintain a balance of life in a world of bleak loneliness. And then he heard the music...
Blinded and scarred in a terrible accident, Antonietta Scarletti made music that thrilled the world with its beauty and passion. Descended from a long line of psychics, Antonietta has learned to rely on her other senses to "see" the world around her, but nothing could have prepared her for Byron. He came to her, drawn by her music, and became her secret obsession. Others fear him, sensing that he is dangerous--a predator--but for Antonietta he is her ultimate fantasy, her dream lover. He woos her with kisses full of erotic allure, whispering that she is his light, his salvation. Byron has waited an eternity for her, and he will let nothing stand between him and the woman born to be his lifemate....
“That's it? That's all the questions you're going to ask him? Byron Justicano is not at all what he seems. How did he get into this house? How does he ever get in? Why don't you ask him that!" "I turn into tiny molecules and seep under the doors. Take care you do not leave your window open, you never know what might creep in.”Tasha – Byron
“Tell me who you are then. Tell me what you are. If not Jaguar, like me, what are you then?" "I am your life mate. Keeper of your heart as you are the keeper of mine.”Antonietta – Byron
“A compulsion. That's what you are. A sorcerer, and you've cast a spell on me." "And here I thought it was the other way around.”Antonietta – Byron
“But then I am not most people, am I?" "No, you're not. You are someone very special. If you are not Jaguar and you are not quite human, what are you? What exactly? And don't just put me off with some strange answer that doesn't make sense." "I am Carpathian, of the mountains in that region. My people are as old as time and we are of the earth. You have your legends of vampires and werewolves and jaguars, and we belong to that realm.”Byron – Antonietta
“Antonietta. Lifemate. Rescue me. I cannot take these women and their histrionics another moment. Where are you?”Byron to Antonietta
“Byron looked at Jacques. "There is something about standing up in front of a crowd. Why do women like these things?" "To torment us," Jacques said. "You have that right."”Byron, Jacques & Vlad
