Another companion novel to the Blue Blood saga.  This time we get three love stories: Oliver and a mysterious stranger, Freya, Allegra (Gabrielle) and Bendix Chase, and Schuyler and Jack.  The stories were a little more grown-up with sex scenes, albeit pretty PG-13 ones.  I was concerned about Oliver being left when Schuyler went to Florence with Jack.  Thankfully his heart has been healed.  And we get the introduction of a new character; one that will probably figure into Cruz’s new series, The Witches of East End.  Then we get Allegra’s story set in 1985.  We see her a real person, not just a sleeping angel.  I liked seeing the story of her and Bendix, but also the relationship between her and Charles.  Interesting take on the eternal bond.  Finally we get to see Schuyler and Jack.  I won’t give away the details, but it’s a nice classic love story.  Very enjoyable companion novel.
