Arielle is your typical young woman who is worried about finding a man who will sweep her off her feet as well as getting the perfect tan. Well, not so typically actually. She is empathic and she and her friends have a flair for attracting paranormal activity. Her character is very believable, and it is easy to identify with her method of thinking. She has little experience in life and love and comes across true to life.
The structure of the story is well written. The pace is fairly quick, spanning years at first as the reader is presented with Arielle's childhood. As a teen, she and her friends have a special encounter with the spirit world, and they play a vital role in the happiness of two young lovers.
During her college years, Arielle finally meets Sebastian, the love of her life. He is an immortal who lives in a castle and his been searching for his true love for centuries. It wouldn't be fair to leave out any mention of his first wife, Annabel, who has been plaguing him since their annulment. You have to feel something for a woman so jealous she would pursue her ex for over 400 years!
I enjoyed the amount of description that was presented in this story, especially the beach scenes. I could truly feel as if I was walking right next to Arielle, soaking up the sun. There was one portion where the girls encounter the leader of a group of occult bad guys who practice human sacrifice. They were intriguing and would make a good story on their own.
There is quite a lot of story packed into this one book. There are many interesting tidbits that caught my attention, but they were not the main focus of this story. It doesn't feel overly dense, however, and the storyline is easy to follow. Fans of paranormal romance will love this one.

I highly recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romance. Girl-next-door Arielle meets and falls in love with the dashing, beautiful Sebastian who has been 27 years old for centuries. He's an immortal and he comes with baggage. A jealous ex has vowed to torment Sebastian for eternity, but all he cares about is keeping Arielle safe. Arielle is sweet and brave. She is in love with love and wants only to be with her own Mr. Darcy. Arielle appears to be just a regular girl, but she is an empathic and can read some people's minds. She's a very interesting character and steadfastly loyal to Sebastian, her family and her two best friends. The friendships between the three girls are inspiring and I love how they remain an important part of the story even when the women meet exciting men. It's refreshing and fun to read about immortals who are not fairies or vampires, yet have their own rich mythology. Pick up book 1 and you'll definitely be hooked on this series.
