Description:
He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her…

Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.
She’s haunted by dreams of her own death…

After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she’s drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand.

They’ve waited in the shadows for centuries…Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies re-emerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he’s ever loved again.

Night Walker introduces me to another new author and a new take on the blood sucker. (Can’t call him a vampire.. he hates that romanticized word.. LOL) I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!!!

Kate Bradley is reeling from the breakup of her engagement. She is more upset at the loss of her future plans and the betrayal than actually losing Tom. She heads home to San Diego to not only heal, but to finally deal with the loss of her parents and their stuff. Coming back home has awaken the night mare she has been having since childhood. The dream is soo real. She witnesses the brutal death of a woman from the 1700’s.

Calisto Terana has been waiting 200 years to be reunited with his love Tala, who was taken from him by the one person he trusted. Her death caused him to loose not only his faith in the monks of the mission, but in the God he made vows to follow. He becomes a Night Walker with the promise of being reunited with Tala when she is reborn.

Kate finds herself drawn to this mysterious man, and deep down feels like he is the other half of her not that she understands it. Calisto refuses to lose Kate after waiting so long to find her, but will he move to fast for her?? Can he protect her from the dangers that took her from him once before, and have made it their mission to stop him at all cost??

I absolutely loved this different approach to the vamp genre. I have to say though a lot of this one is told in flashbacks, because you have to see why he made the choices that he made. I found that it added to the story for you to experience the flashbacks. The chemistry between these two is down right smoking hot, and I loved the fact that Calisto specified that it was Kate that he loved and not the memory of Tala in her. I loved the way the reincarnation of Tala into Kate was handled. Handled the wrong way this could have been a very cheesy concept, but this one was done beautifully. It is quite addictive. I sat and read it in one sitting much to the suffering of everything around me. It was one of those books that holds you hostage!! I hope y’all enjoy this one as much as I have!!
