Thank you to Micha from Omnific Publishing for giving me the opportunity to read Eve of Samhain, and a big THANK YOU to Lisa Sanchez for writing a fantastic book!
As a college senior and server at Hanaford Park's hottest nightclub, twenty-one year old Ryann Pierce's plan was simple: work hard, make lots of money, and avoid the ass-grabbers at all costs. What she never planned for was Quinn Donegan—the living, breathing advertisement for sinful behavior that waltzed into her life.

With an angelic face, a hard body and a butt-load of charm, Quinn had a way with the ladies—a lot of ladies. Cursed with a deadly, addictive touch, his trail of indiscretion blazed across five hundred years. Tired and jaded, Ryann is a shocking revelation Quinn didn't see coming.

Filled with desire, yet unable to touch one another, Ryann and Quinn embark on a daunting journey, battling frustrating physical limitations while exploring their new love. In a race against the clock, Ryann learns she must plead for Quinn's life before…the Eve of Samhain. Determined to end her lover's suffering, not even the danger dogging her every move can keep her from her mission.
My Thoughts 
I've not long finished this book and all I have to say is, WOW!  This is definitely a story I could read over and over again.

Lisa Sanchez has done a brilliant job of creating strong unforgettable characters.  Ryann's a college student who works at her local night club to help pay her way through her education.  She's quick-witted, stubborn and bootylicious.  While working at the nightclub she meets the ever desirable Quinn who is the very definition of  'sex god'.  Soon Ryann begins to feel that prickly sense of someone watching her and Quinn takes it upon himself to keep an eye on Ryann, and in turn getting to know her better.
Ryann is a pretty switched on girl.  While fighting the urge to turn and flee, she'll also not let anything stop her from living her life.  I like that in a character.  Quinn is interesting.  When he first appears on the page I found he came across as very arrogant but also charming.  The further the story progressed, the more of Quinn's personality we see and although he had a few bizarre sayings  I warmed up to him pretty quick. Martha is quite the mystery.  When she finally does show up, I was pleasantly surprised at how different she is compared to how Jessica portrays her as.  Jessica,  Ryann's faithful best friend and god forbid you ever wake her up before she's ready.

Eve of Samhain is Lisa Sanchez's first published novel but you wouldn't think so.  It's especially well written, and her style makes it a very easy and addictive read.
