Kathryn Smith- Be Mine Tonight

I am called Chapel . . .
For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...Never have I known a maiden the like of Prudence Ryland, whose beauty and spirit awaken a heart I feared long cold and dead. But her young life is slipping away, and she also seeks the deliverance of the Grail -- unaware that the cost of her search could be her soul. I must help Prudence, for in six hundred years, no other woman has stirred my passions so. But dare I tender to my beloved that which she most desires -- the sensuous "gift" of forever that is both rapture and a curse: my immortal kiss? 
My Thoughts:  I went from reading very erotic books to this and it was a nice change. I really liked the female lead because she really didn't take crap from anyone. She is dying and knew there were things she wants to do before she died so she never held back. Chapel knew what he was and was not happy with himself, for over 600 years he has hated himself and thought that he was going to Hell. By joining the church he wanted to do more to repent for becoming a Vampire. Not sure why he had thoughts like that because even reading his side of view I did not get it- lol.  Looking for the Grail put them together but he had no idea that Pru was dying and when they fell in love she held off telling him for as long as she could.  Knowing the way Chapel felt about himself she knew he would never willing save her or change her. He thought saving her would ruin who she is and her getting into Heaven. When it got to the end of her life he had to make the hardest decision of his life.  There are a few other things going on in this story and I like how they bring the other Brothers into this book.
My Rating: 4
