Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.
Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.
After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.
I didn’t think that I will enjoy reading this book. I was disappointed at the start, I found the first few chapters boring and not that believable. Some parts of the plot bothered me, as well. But as the story progressed I can’t seem to put my e-book reader down for a long time. I was already absorbed by the story. I know this is PnR but I see it more as a historical romance. Sure there were witches and vampires but the author followed the usual formula for historicals. Not that I’m complaining, though. Lol! Overall, the author did a good job. I enjoyed reading this immensely. I’m looking forward to reading the next book.
