My Review

This novella is Book one in the spellbound series. Antonia Hollander is a doctor who works in a busy ER in a Chicago hospital. One night during a meeting, she and her fellow co-worker are introduced to the new night nurse Benjamin Slanton.  After Brief introductions, Antonia (Toni) is instructed to show Ben around the hospital.  As Toni slowly falls for Ben, she finds out out many things....mainly that he's a vampire.

This 94 page novella is short and the story moved quickly. I enjoyed the relationships between the characters in the book.  I also liked how the base of the story is weaved together; that is girl born in another era is promised to the devil himself (Hades) as payment for the Fathers selfish need for wealth. After her father reneges on his deal with Hades and hides Toni from him for centuries. In walks Ben, unsuspecting that he is a pawn in Hades little game to find Toni. 
You find out much at the end of the book and i have to say that is the only thing about the book i didn't like. I just felt like some things should have been explained in earlier parts of the book . 

All and all, this one gets 3 Black Orchids.

No sex scenes in this one guys, although there are light kissing scenes between Toni and Ben. 

Lata Days...MUAH!
