4.0 out of 5 stars superb Victorian paranormal suspense thriller June 29 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1899 in Clovelly, England Olivia Gavin is looked upon as an eccentric who sleeps during the day and works at night. Nobody connects her to the men who disappear and end up in a place where they have no idea how they got there. She is a vampire who never wanted to be one; her husband Reign turned her against her will on their wedding night. Irate she walked out on him cutting off all ties and has not communicated with him since. A messenger gives her a letter stating her nephew James who she raised has been abducted; if she wants him back alive she is to hand over Reign to them.

She goes to Reign to ask for his help in finding and rescuing James, but conceals the demand she hand him over to his enemies. Reign unexpectedly agrees although he doesn't trust her and knows she is not telling him the entire truth. He demands they behave like husband and wife while on the quest. They learn James went to Scotland with friends who know his aunt is a vampire; their fathers belong to belong to the Order of the Silver Palm who will use Olivia and James as expendable pawns to get the Blood Grail they think Reign has.

This is a stand alone book so the audience will not have to read the previous related tales (see NIGHT OF THE HUNTRESS and TAKEN BY THE NIGHT) although that enhances this Victorian paranormal suspense thriller. The vampires seem real making the hunt for them feel genuine; while the romantic second chance at love subplot is cleverly developed as both have a lot of trust issues to overcome although Reign seems indifferent to his knowing that his wife was going to betray him feels off base. Still LET THE NIGHT BEGIN is an enjoyable vampire historical romantic suspense in which the sleuthing and confrontation is supported by the romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy reunion story! June 24 2008
By AndreaW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Let the Night Begin is the fourth book in Ms. Smith's exciting Brotherhood of Blood series that tells the stories of five Templar Knights who drank from the unholy Blood Grail over 600 years before. This is Reign's story.

Olivia Gavin needs help. She has just found out that her beloved nephew has been abducted. The "ransom" that the kidnappers ask for is her estranged husband, Reign, who she married thirty years ago and left on their wedding night after he turned her into a vampire without her consent. So, she returns to London to plead with him to help her.

Reign has never stopped loving his wife. He carries a lot of guilt over what happened on their wedding night and still blames himself for her leaving. When Olivia turns up in London asking for his help, he is a bit shocked at first. He also suspects that she isn't telling him everything, but agrees to help her . . . for a price--Olivia must share his bed again. She accepts because she has no other choice. The ransom that the kidnappers ask for is Reign himself, and she has no problem handing him over in exchange for her nephew. But, the more time they spend together, the more they realize how much they have missed one another. And with a deadly enemy who knows their secrets close by, Reign and Olivia will have to work hard to be able to mend their broken relationship and look toward to a future together.

Reign is a terrific hero. He's crude, sarcastic and blunt, yet tender underneath it all when it comes to Olivia. Despite the fact that she left him, he never stopped loving her and would still do anything for her. Reign knows that Olivia hasn't told him the whole story, but is patient and waits for her to tell him when she's ready. All of these traits make him totally sexy in my eyes. (And Ms. Smith writes some of the sexiest heroes!)

At the beginning of the book, Olivia is bitter and stubborn, but devoted. She has raised her nephew, James, for eighteen years, since he was a baby, so she considers him more like a son. It is her love for James that pushes her to plead with Reign for his help. During the course of the book, she really matures as a character and admits to herself and Reign when she is wrong. I really respected that and it made me like her even more.

I thoroughly enjoyed the verbal sparring between Reign and Olivia. It made for some great tension, which led to some really hot love scenes. Really, really hot. I am now eagerly anticipating the final installment in this series, Temple's book. I'm very anxious to see how everything is wrapped up. I highly recommend Let the Night Begin!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let the Night Begin (The Brotherhood of Blood, Book 4) by Kathryn Smith July 4 2009
By Littleflwers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Great story about Reign a vampire who married Olivia. On their wedding night he turned Olivia into a vampire and was quite brutal. She left him and disappeared for over 30 years. During that time her sister had a child. Her sister died in an accident and Olivia raised the child as her own. He gets kidnapped and the ransom note demands she trade Reign for the child. So after not seeing him for over 30 years she finds him and goes to him for help. She doesn't tell him that he is the ransom for the boy. After being away from each other for the 30 years there is a lot of conflict between the two and also a lot of guilt from both of them. Olivia is a strong woman who has taken care of herself and done a good job at it. Reign has never given up hope the Olivia will someday come back to him. The writing style was good and the story was interesting. It wasn't the typical paranormal romance. There was some sexual content but not too graphic. I found it to be a good read and look forward to reading more by this author.

The Story
In the fourth installment Reign is reunited with his wife after 30 years. Olivia's nephew was kidnapped and they want Reign in exchange for her adoptive son. Reign changed Olivia on their wedding night. She hasn't forgiven him yet. Reign has never stopped loving Olivia, he takes their wedding values very seriously. He suspects she still has feelings for him, in exchange for helping her Reign requests she act his wife in all ways. Once they start getting close to each other and sharing a bed, they are unable to ignore the feelings it brings. Reign and Olivia find love on the mission to find her nephew.

Each book in this series gets better and better. I loved this story. Reign and Olivia are made for each other. Their love was so well written it is almost tangible. The pace is fast and kept me captivated. All the stories are tied in together. This book sets up for the final in the series. The characters are very likable and the development is there. All the elements for a great book are in this one!
