 A huge fan of Jane Austen, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it's silly to wish for that, naive even. But she's met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at nineteen...well.... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux.

While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he's no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairytale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire.
Danielle is a beautiful girl that loves art and Jane Austen.  She has a directional problem that I can relate to, getting lost all to often.  Her Father pursuaded her to train in martial arts so she could protect herself.  She leaves Colorado to attend art school in London.  Her Aunt, Uncle, and cousin live in London and are happy to have her stay with them. 
Her fears come true on one of her first nights in London.  Her cousin leaves her at the library and Danielle is forced to see herself home.  When she walks out to get in the car, she notices a man standing against her car.  Trying not to panic she tries to return to the safety of the library only to find the doors locked.  She then begins to walk down the street to find another safe place so she can call her cousin.  Only goes the wrong way and ends up in an ally with the guy right behind her.  While running she runs into another guy that seems to scare the guy chasing her away.  He then shows her the way home.  The beautiful stranger saved her life.
She later meets her hero again at a garden party hosted by her Uncle and they begin dating.  She knows there is something different about him, but can't understand what it is.  He is a perfect gentleman and treats her with the utmost respect, but the feeling she gets when he looks at her is definitely not normal.
