Title: Night's Rose
Author: Annaliese Evans
Series: Night's Rose
Genre: Historical Urban Fantasy
Summary: For nearly one hundred years, Rosemarie Edenberg has worked tirelessly to wipe the dreaded ogre tribe from the earth. Now the tribe has gathered in London to work a spell that will destroy the scourge of their kind, the one they call the Briar Rose.
Two magnetic men will unite to aid Rose--her mysterious fey advisor, Ambrose, and the vampire Lord Shenley, an earl of scandalous reputation and even more scandalous appetites. One will save her, one will betray her, and both will challenge her to face the past that haunts her.
Once upon a time, she was ensnared in the mists of enchantment, cursed to sleep one hundred years. But this beauty wasn't awakened with a kiss and has never known happily ever after. But with the help of her handsome allies, Rose may find it yet.
Thoughts: This is a Historical Urban Fantasy... with a faerie tale twist. Sleeping Beauty to be more specific. I've never been a fan of Sleeping Beauty, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book, more than I thought I would.
This was an enchanting story. With all sorts of species from fantasy: ogre's, fairies, elves, trolls, vampires. Plus Rose has two very sexy companions, Ambrose and Lord Shenley who make the story even more intriguing. The three of them have a very interesting dynamic and I can't wait to see what unfolds for them in the next book.
Score: 4 Stars
