Desires Reveals revolves around a 2,600 year-old vampire named Bektamun who happens to save a family whom are accused of being Huguenots in the St. Bartholomew's Massacre of 1572.

The daughter of the family, Nicole, bonds with the vampire despite her young age (She is around four or five.) and the fact that her parents and siblings don't care for it. Over the years her relationship with the vampire becomes deeper, but there is a rule that vampires can never have a relationship with a human. There are dark forces that will stop at nothing to destroy their bond.

Desire Revealed is not your typical vampire tale, which usually has a male vampire falling in love with a teenage girl. Here we have an older (much older) female vampire who is searching for something more meaningful and she finds exactly that in her young companion Nicole. The narration throughout the book flows well. The author has created characters that are easily likeable despite their flaws. Dark Revealed is about revenge, love, and friendship. It is a fast read at only 226 pages and I do wish that it was slightly longer. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and I recommend it to other Vampire readers/fans.

Note - I received a complementary review copy courtesy of the author.
