She's convinced that he sees her as weak and in needy. Although the attraction is mutual, Roland can't see beyond the people he's loved and lost through the years and can't think beyond the beast that would give into bloodlust if not for [...]
Rhiannon daughter of Pharaoh is an immortal Vampire with only one weakness, Rolande, a vampire she saved dmuring medieval times, who seems not to share the attraction. Thrown together while trying to save a boy who has the paranormal FBI after him, they come together after centuries of longing. This is one of my favorite books of all time. Rolande is a hero to die (literally) for and Rhiannon is a great heroine.I re-read this one all the time.
With this book u get to see a different Rhiannon. She shows the good n nice side to her while trying to show her heart without getting it broken again. I loved maggie shayne because she always has a HEA in her books.
It is imperative to note the featured book as an example of what true writing should include. In illustative text we can sometime equate logical persuasion out of fear. Yet the main emphasis should be alloted through the various trials that are used throughout the climax of the piece. As in any writing feature, one must become very innate to the decision making process in writing. A breath of fresh air is the exquisite
Book 2 in "Wings in the Night" vampire series. Original novel. This is re-published in "Wings in the Night" which contains the first 3 books in this seriesTwilight Memories focuses on Rhiannan and Roland de Courtemanche (both vampires- Rhiannan is Roland's maker). Tamara and Eric show up in this story as well.
I enjoyed this book much more than the first one in this series, but I also feel it is important to read the first one so things can be understood efficiently in this one. It was well written and had - as Shrek would say- many layers like an onion.
2.5 stars. This one was better than the first one for sure. I even liked the idea of this book quite a lot. However, the execution of the premise left a lot to be desired. I felt both main characters were a chore, especially the heroine.
Phew. Finishing this one was like pulling teeth. The cheese factor of this novel is pretty high and both the characters felt horribly contrived. I hated them both and wish the author would have killed them off at the end. Here are the basicsHero/Heroine: Roland and Rhiannon are both ancient vampires who have been friends/acquaintances for centuries. Obviously they are slated to fall in love before the book ends.Their Emotional Hurdle: He secretly loves her but doesn’t realize it because he thi [...]

Rhiannon has lived a very long and interesting life but she has never been really happy. First her father, the Pharaoh, rejected her and now it seems that the man she loves are rejecting her as well. Rhiannon first saw Roland de Courtemanche as a knight during the Medieval times and she has loved him ever since. She has tried to make him accept her as an equal but as a knight he has a strong scene of protecting the weak. And being seen as weak doesn´t sit well with Rhiannon. So even if she is d [...]
This is book 2 in the Wings of the Night Vampire series. After reading the first one (which I liked) I downloaded this one as well. The hero is Roland, a secondary character from the first novel and his heroine Rhiannon, a much elder vampire princess from Egypt. The story line takes place a couple of years after the first novel. The DPI (Division of Paranormal Investigations) has tracked Roland and Jameson down in France and are out to kidnap them. Rhiannon, Roland's maker, appears to "help" Rol [...]
Well before "Twilight" ever came to light, author Maggie Shayne wrote a series of books about vampires under the title theme of "Twilight". In a nut-shell they are pretty much Mills & Book with a Vampire lead. A bit soppy. Very unrealistic. Always a happy ending. Not a quality read by any stretch of the imagination - but a quick and easy reading fix leaving you feeling all mushy!I thought I would like this book a million times more than the first as the main two characters were more antagoni [...]
Well no one can say I didn't give this series a fair shake. Even though the last one was shaky I decided to give the second one a try but I refuse to waste another night reading something so obnoxious. The heroine from what I could see was going to be over the top in the opposite direction as the last one Too independent though I suspect she would've still acted tstl. The hero was just out and out obnoxious. His attitude toward sex was puritanical and it was rather boring to read. He also had th [...]
As usual Maggie has made me fall in love with vampires. My favorite female vampire will always be Rhiannon. She is beautiful and fierce like every vampire should be. She doesn't mind taking a little blood but her emotions are deep. By the way did I mention that she has a black panther as a pet? Roland is a romantic and I love him with her. She cures him of his demons and he cures her of hers. This is one of my favorite books in this series. It actually made me cry. I promise they were happy tear [...]
3 1/2 stars. I really didn't want to read the rest of the series because I was pretty content with the first book. Now i'm still unsure if I will continue. The one thing that is nagging me is why do these vampires not kill anyone? These people deserve to die, literally. And keeping them alive endangers them. Pisses me off!I'm happy Jamey is safe for now, and I loved Pandora. Brought a little something extra to the story.
the next chapter in the wings of the night series brings us the characters of Roland and Rhiannon. Rhiannon has been my favorite character in the series so far because I find a lot of my same qualities in her you know except the whole vampire thing! Great book just like I remembered!
