Vespers (Hours of the Night Book 1) Kindle Edition
"There comes a time when one book totally changes your outlook and expectations for a genre, theme, storyline, etc. I would say that Vespers has changed my expectations for Vampire romances."-The Jeep Diva
"In fact I enjoyed the story so much that it has taken me almost 24 hours to get around to writing a review that doesn't give away any spoilers."- Bonkers About Books
"Vespers left an impression with its resplendent atmosphere. These authors blended romance and action in a Gothic setting, historical references and religious overtones thrown in for flavor and Voila! Tantalizing cocktail! That I cannot wait to order another of."-Boy Meets Boy Reviews--This text refers to the paperback edition.

It took me a couple of chapters to get into it but I'm so glad I persevered.
A couple of things held me back from giving it 5 stars, like the way Thaddeus spoke and Sara's accepting his situation so easily, but I enjoyed the mystery and the pace and the writing over all.
I'll def be checking out the sequels
Thaddeus is a vampire that works with the church. He believes he has lost hisn soul because of what he is, but that by working with monks he can redeem it. He must simply stay away from sin, especially his own perversion if desiring me.
Sara is a prospective grad student with no real goal in life. He needs a job to help his family pay back debts, and assistant for a mysterious Mr. Dupont is the best thing he can find. When he learns that this job is far more than just 'assisting' his worldview is changed and he finds himself caught in danger both out in the world and by Dupont's side.
Watching the slow burn between Thad and Sara was fascinating. Everyone watched from the outside, blaming and expecting the two to be in bed immediately. But Sara isn't one to sleep with his boss, and Thad believes it a sin. That basis of sin makes it the most difficult relationship. Between over a century of hearing that homosexuality is a sin, as well as his belief he has lost his soul, Thad cannot be convinced in just a few days that it would be alright to love a man. It makes their connection very complicated and adds depth to the entire book.
There were a few things that I hope will be further explored in the next book. While this was a complete book in its own, there is more to learn in this world. From Thad and Sara's respective pasts, to the blood connection they have know, there is still much to learn about in this world. I look forward to the next book to see where it goes!
