Review: Botanist Henri Muller who badly scarred in a fire working on his thesis about flowers only to discover that his time is running out on his research. He learns from his assistant that there is a recluse man who grows the flowers he needs to finish his research. Ambrose is the lonely vampire who grows flowers in his greenhouse. Upon meeting Henri, he longs for the one thing that he’s never had, a mate.
Wonderfully written story. The fire was horrifying. The details of the plants in the greenhouse were hauntingly beautiful. This story simply amazed me with its loving yet intense moments. The intimate scenes between Ambrose and Henri were hot enough to scorch the pages.
