From Afar

From Afar - Ava March I love Ava March - can I just start with that? This isn't your grandma's Regency novel, though, so don't expect parlor teas and country dance parties. This is Ava's version of Vampire Regency - and it's steam heat and bared fangs erotic.

It's a short piece, but packed with top-notch characterization - lots of emotional punch for the length. Loneliness, frustration, confusion, misunderstandings - my heart just ached for Raphael.

A little more backstory wouldn't have been amiss and I did find the ending rushed up at me like a flash flood. Would have liked just a little bit more...
