Summary:
Portia Cabot, once saved the life of Julian Kane, a vampire and one who has been searching for his soul, so that he can be mortal once more. Its been years since he has seen his family and Portia sister-in-law to his brother. So when he sees her coming for him in a gambling hell, all the emotion he once felt for her comes riding back like a ocean current and he knows he must protect her, especially against those that would just as soon kill her, a ex lover and a woman who has possession of his soul, a very ancient vampiress. Portia knows that despite the fact that they haven’t heard from Julian in years, there is still much good in him, and her intent is to save him once more, with all the love she has always held for him…..


The Hero (Julian Kane)
Julian, turned into a vampire, has been searching and trying to kill the one who has it, and only when he destroys that vampire will he be able to have his soul back and be mortal once more. However he never thought that he would see Portia or that she would turn into such a independent minx with a fiery spirit that he remembers, the one woman whom saved his life almost at the cost of her own life. Julian starts to realize that Portia has always held his love and his heart for all time….


The Heroine (Portia Cabot)
Portia, as a young girl always believed in the magical creatures and creatures of the night, and couldn’t help but fall in love with Julian whom she adored years ago. Now seeing him once more, Julian is much different that whom she remembers, and is willing to do anything she can to save him or destroy him if need be, if he truly has turned to the darker side of his nature as rumors claim. But Portia sees inside of Julian, something good and pure and is willing to risk everything to believe in him and save him…


My Thoughts 
The Vampire Who Loved Me is the second in the Cabot series, and this is probably one of my favorite series by Teresa Medieros. This is a author that I have come to adore over the years of reading her books, and I fall in love with each and every one of her stories, and this is a re read and its been quite a while since I had read it, and I love historicals mixed with the paranormal (which can be hard to find at times) The Vampire Who Loved Me is a emotional and tender love story that will pull at your heartstrings with every page. Its such a story that even though filled with twists and turns, definitely a memorable story and a pure delight!!!


My Favorite Quote 
“A lifetime won’t be long enough to love you. I told you once before that whether I was a vampire or a man, I would love you for all eternity.” He touched his lips to her brow. “My sweet…my darling…my angel…my bright eyes”
