Charlotte is killed in a fit of rage by Julius Barclay, would-be suitor and Reginald's owner. He then blames Reginald and attempts to kill him as well. With Reginald's escape, an encounter with a vampire – the beautiful Syre – gives him a chance at eternity and a reunion with his love.
Renata Charles, a modern-day estate sales director, is enchanted by a vintage yellow dress that spurs vivid daydreams of another time. She soon learns the visions are glimpses of her life as Charlotte, and the mysterious and appealing Reggie was her lover.
When the past comes back to haunt them, their chance at forever is threatened.

Can Renata come to terms with who she is and accept eternal love?

A vintage yellow dress opens the door to an eternal love waiting in the shadows. Renata Charles is a director of estate sales and the most recent one has captivated her. There are plenty of well-preserved musical instruments as well as a gorgeous yellow gown circa late 1800s. She can’t afford the dress on her salary, but it calls to her. One touch of the gown and her mind fills with images of her life from long ago. Reggie approaches her and she’s drawn to him. The more time she spends in his company, the more she’s under his spell. Only, this is no spell; Reggie is her beloved from a past life. He’s waited over a century for her reincarnation, and he offers her an eternity of love and protection. Before she decides, the past evil which tore them apart has returned, hellbent on revenge. Can Renata and Reggie finally be free to love each other, or will evil forces rip them apart?
Vintage is an alluring, emotional paranormal romance from start to finish. The heartache, rage, and grief suffered by Reggie in his previous life are poignantly portrayed. As I read, my own heart broke for this couple. The connection between Renata and Reggie is immediate and speaks volumes of their eternal love. The plot moves at a precise pace and there are a few twists I didn’t see coming. The romance reads like a second chance romance with intense emotion, long-suffering love, and pent-up passion. The world-building is so intricate and beautiful. My heart burst with so many emotions that by the time I finished, I was crying. Brilliant from start to finish, this is a book to read and reread. Laura M. Baird has outdone herself with this book. Highly recommend!
