Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
Three hundred years can change many things, but love is not among them.
Forbidden to claim the woman he loves as his mate, Gabriel established a yearly meet with Jael to satisfy their hunger for each other. Time has not diminished the vampires' need, nor made the pain of every other day more bearable. Christmas Eve together might not be much, but pretending for one night that they can belong together is the only way either knows how to survive.
Except this Christmas, Gabriel can't go on pretending. Living for one night is no way to live, and he is determined that he and Jael will see the new day together. The only question is whether after all this time she's prepared for the consequences of saying yes.

Rosalie Stanton's fluid and excellent writing made this story of a desperate love transcend that of the usual romances.
It was taboo for vampires to mate with one another, and it was this law among their kind that kept Jael and Gabriel apart, though they met every December 24 for a reunion. They lived for the one day when they could meet again. I can feel the sweetness of their coming together and I wept with Jael at the thought of the subsequent heartbreak to come. They've been doing this for three hundred years. How much longer will it go on?
DARK SOLACE celebrates the desperate love between star-crossed lovers, and the lengths each will go to to preserve that love. Though this is a short tale, the characters' backstory and personalities were depicted clearly and with much emotion that their desperation for one another poured from the pages and resonates with me. I especially like the ending; it's believable and touching.
I am looking forward to more luscious offerings from this author, and I hope she has longer works.
