After her short failed marriage, Kate tries to rebuild her life and takes a position as a nanny to three small boys. She quickly grows to love them, but their father, terrifies her, while igniting a passion she didn’t know she possessed. Disturbed by his distant manner with his sons, Kate struggles to make him more involved in the boys’ daily lives. Her efforts are mysteriously supported by an entity that cannot really exist. Or can she? And if she does exist, is she really trying to help Kate, or just take over her body?
But when he deals the hand, all bets are off…
Six years after his beloved wife passed away, Matthias is still trying to become the father she wanted him to be. Not an easy task for a three-centuries-old immortal. His search for the ultimate nanny ends when Kate Rokov stumbles to his home and into his arms. The immediate attraction he feels for her seems like a betrayal of his dead wife, a love he’s harboured for over three hundred years. But when Kate is stalked by a deadly stranger, life he clung to in the past begins to crumble and break down. Can Matthias learn to trust and to love again in time to save his family from disaster, or will his stubborn pride destroy everything worth living for?
I feel like the characters were not as multidimensional as they could have been and there was very little growth. It felt more like the author was making Kate a substitute mommy for the little boys and a step in wife for Matthis. The issue of Matthis’ immortality was also a problem for me because it’s alluded to that he was a vampire, and all of a sudden he’s not really one but is still immortal? What also does not make much sense is that he’s loosing his immortality but yet Kate is gaining it. That was all very confusing for me.
Overall, I’m not sure that I would recommend the book because it doesn’t flow well and I had trouble keeping things straight. Perhaps others who read this will be able to make better sense of it that I was, and I hope if that’s the case that another reader would enlighten me. I’m always open for a new perspective. If you do pick up a copy, let me know what you think.
