This is a revised work originally published as Notturno. Adin Tredeger is a scholar of rare erotic manuscripts and has just won the priceless 500 y o Notturno manuscript at auction Notturno is the first recorded book detailing an erotic homosexual relationship, and Adin is captivated by the deeply passionate story of the two lovers Adin doesn t actually believe love exists, but the heartbreaking story of Niccolo and Auselmo s forbidden love is changing Adin s mind. Especially so when Adin meets Donte nee Niccolo in the, um, flesh Turns out the wages of Niccolo s sin was not death, but un death He was turned into a vampire now called Donte , and forced to exist for centuries without his precious Auselmo Notturno was his personal diary and he guarded it carefully, but it was confiscated with all his other art in the Nazi invasion of France and kept hidden for decades When it I ve given this a B for narration and a B for content at AudioGalsRomances featuring vampires aren t ones I gravitate towards, but the audio of the Deep series was recommended to me by Kathleen here on Goodreads, and as I ve enjoyed books by Z. A Maxfield in the past, and I d seen the series crop up in the Audible Romance Package , I picked it up On the whole, that was a good decision, and I was engaged and entertained throughout all three books in spite of some inconsistencies in the plots and issues with the narration in book two in particular.

Although I enjoyed the world created here I found the vampire world building a bit light with the focus on the manuscript but given that it s the first book I m looking forward to that being explored in depth later. I couldn t help but feel bad for Adin here The poor man dealt with quite a lot in this read with several brushes with death and had his world view shift quite sharply I hope that in future reads he s not as sad and beaten down He s a good man and I enjoyed his friendship with Edward quite a bit and would ac 2. 0 StarsAdin Tredeger is an antique document expert, university professor, and erotic book collector One day, Adin comes across a five hundred year old homoerotic journal and it s the find of his career Donte Fedelta is a five hundred year old vampire He authored the manuscript now in Adin s possession and he wants it back The journal is the story of the love of his life Auselmo wherein Donte poured out his heart and soul Thus Adin and Donte begin an adversarial and dangerous dance around the manuscript But Adin soon realizes that he s no than a gnat in a war amongst titans Ugh This book was really frustrating for me As a love story between Donte and Auselmo, it worked as a love story between Donte and Adin, not so much I think this is true for a couple of reasons Donte and Adin started out as a one off in the mile high club The I want to say fews words It s my first Z. A Maxfield book, and certainly will not be the last one She is a marvelous writer If you are searching an erotic M M books this book will disappoint you It s sexy, but tamed to be classified as erotic On the contrary, if you are searching for a first approach on M M world this books is perfect The paranormal romance is interesting, and the writer sytile will keep your attention I enjoy the writing as I appreciated the humor In my view it s a terrific book and I can t give less than 4 stars. Urfortunately maybe this book could be shorter It s a little boring the few 30 final pages, and maybe the drama of the fight for the love was exaggerated That s why I m giving 4 not 5 stars. Enjoy the reading, and thank you for reading my review image error ↠´ Notturno ↠´ Overall I thought this was a pretty fun read I never got a chance to read the first edition Hmmwhat to say I m feeling a bit overwhelmed with how much I loved this story For me Donte was the perfect, emotionally distant vampire hero Dark, dangerous and often a mystery to be solved, but at the same time his journal entries depicted someone who had loved well in his human life and cherished those memories still This gave him a soft side even as he played the big, bad vampire. Aiden was ready for someone special, even though he didn t know it Watching the relationship develop was sweet, even if the final outcome came down to the last pages Oh what a perfect ending This now goes on my favorites shelf.
1. 5 stars Dear Deep Desire The M F romance abusive men and heroines that love them anyway and keep coming back for called they want their plot back. I should probably give this book only 1 star, but something about it kept me reading so I guess I have to give it props for that much Honestly though, I sort of hated this story Adin is a self important art dealer who meets Donte, a centuries old vampire, on a plane They have a quicky that may or may not be considered dub con followed by some VERY dub con ish encounters I m going to put it right out there Donte is an asshole Not only does he assert over and over again that he is a predator and that Adin is simply prey to him, but he displays a pattern of neglect and manipulation that NO ONE is going to convince me is even close to love Adin is a dishrag who t FYI, this is a revised version of this book
