I get that this was a Paranormal Romance novel . . . but given the space opera setting it could have easily been in the scifi/fantasy genre. Normally with paranormal romance series there are predictable molds of characters. For me, usually the world the author builds trumps any generic characters. There really wasn't any world building in this novel. As for the romance aspect of the story . . . . it is more of a lust aspect. I really couldn't find any emotional connection between the two leads. Lastly, I dislike false advertising. It is a bit of a pet peeve for me. On the book description it says the main character is a nearly 2000 year old vampire. However, the vampire is less than 1600 years old. There really isn't any reason to round up 400 years, could have easily said nearly 1600 year old vampire. Honestly, I feel like this book would be better if it delved into the SciFi elements of the world the author created.
