A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexandros DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.
Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.
My Thoughts: Megan Romano and her twin Sister Morgan are 20 years old and on there way to Italy after Morgan wins a contest to attend design school. Megan has always had strange dreams, but never really understood what they meant. It gets even stranger when she begin to see people and places that she has had dreams about. While walking down the street one day she bumps in to Alexandros DiPiero, and she thinks he is the most beautiful man she has ever seen, yet there is something familiar about him. Alex is super hot, rich, mysterious, and Megan can't understand why he is interested in her. Despite her reservations, the relationship gets more serious and Megan decides to stay in Italy after Morgan goes back home. Things just keep getting weirder from this point on. There is a lot more to Alex than Megan knew, and he has quite a few secrets of his own. Then there is Redmond, the mysterious man who is always with Alex that talks about fate, yet Megan feels strangely comforted by him. Megan gets a call from Morgan, and finds out Morgan is expecting, and if she thoughts things were strange now, they are about to get a lot stranger.
This was an entertaining book. I was surprised when I got further into it to find out that the paranormal element in this paranormal romance included vampires, guardians, witches, and dhampir's, which was a new one for me, but did it certainly provided for some interesting reading. There are quite a few twists and turns in the story. Megan also has to face her fate, what she is destined to be, and how that relates to those she loves, and to the new mysterious people that she is meeting. She deals with tragedy, rejection, desire, and love. She has to decide if she will stay with the hottie Alex, or will she act upon her feelings for the other mysterious hottie, Emilian. Overall, this was a intriguing and fun book. The ending is somewhat of a cliff hanger, leaving you wanting to know where the story goes from here. If you are into paranormal romance, then you will probably enjoy reading this book. Please be aware that there are adult scenes in this book that are not suitable for younger readers.
