Editorial Reviews

Review

"Excuse me while I gush like a fangirl. I was so afraid that Beloved Vampire, while starting out with a bang, would eventually fade into mediocrity like so many books. Not at all. As the book progressed, it just got better and better, until it is now officially one of my favorite (if not the favorite) vampire romances....Mason and Jessica are the most well-written, psychologically coherent characters I've read in a long time...This is essentially the erotica of my dreams....While there are explicit scenes, to simply call this book erotica would be severely shortchanging the story. This book is predominantly a story of two hurting souls finding each other and slowly learning to trust the world again...Read Beloved Vampire, even if you think you're sick to death of vampires. You won't regret it. The story is so sensual, so romantic. I'm envious of the fact that I'll never get that first-time excitement again. Desert Isle Keeper. Grade: A"

Jessica Tyson finds herself in the middle of the Sahara desert looking for the tomb of a woman who died centuries ago. Farida's journal has kept Jessica sane through five years of torture from her former vampire master. She was partially third marked so she doesn't look like the 29 year old woman she is, she looks frail and is dying but she is determined to find Farida's tomb before she dies. She wants to die with her fantasy of the girl and her lover Lord Mason. The fantasy that has kept her alive this long, of a Djinn and his love for a slave girl so very long ago. She wants to find the tomb prove she was right, there is a love that can survive all, even death, for legend says that the Djinn to this day guards Farida's tomb and never lets harm come to his beloved.

When Jessica does manage to get to the tomb she finds not a Djinn waiting for her but a very ticked off vampire. He's mad that his beloved's resting place is disturbed. Jessica just wants to die now; her last dream has been shattered. Only once Lord Mason finds Jessica he is not so willing to let her go. Can she stand being bound yet again to a vampire? Even a kind one? One that saves her from death only to enslave her to himself? Will Jessica choose death over continuous torture again? And can Lord Mason's love bring her back from the hell she was in?

Joey W. Hill has a very complicated and intricate tale of love, loss and finding your soul again in Beloved Vampire. Jessica is a strong woman. She is on the verge of death and crawls on her hands and knees to find the woman's tomb that has held her sanity together all these years. She has been tortured almost beyond sanity. Can Lord Mason's love bring her all the way back from the hell she has lived? Lord Mason is a complicated vampire.

Format: Paperback
Jessica Tyson is heading towards her death. She's spent the last five years under the thumb of a sadistic vampire. She's on the run and ready to be done with this life looking for a final resting place of a woman who's ancient journals have given her a thread of sanity through her ordeal.

When she's unexpectedly rescued, she is not sure if she'll ever have the ability to be whole again, let alone love.

Lord Mason still hasn't recovered from the loss of his wife but Jessica touches something in him like no one has in many years.

This is another (stand alone) story in Joey Hill's incredible Vampire series and this is my absolute favorite so far. It's a very intense story as Jessica has had some terrible abuse that is seen in flashback's but it's also a very moving story about faith, hope and the power of love.

There are some very special scenes with some of the characters of her previous stories, Lady Lyssa and Jacob and Lady Dani and Dev. A very moving and powerful story that I highly recommend.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ok,
please do not skewer me but this is my first time reading material from this author. I purchased this book based on the glowing reviews I read here on this very forum. Maybe I set my expectations too high but goodness this book took up 10 hours of my life that I will never get back! the story itself was promising but it took every ounce of restraint in me to NOT skip any pages, convincing myself I would miss crucial information. The pace of this book was entirely too slow for my liking. I felt like Hill, was hammering home the main point relentlessly. I felt like yelling I get it! Jessica is damaged goods, Mason lives in a private hell...Let's move on! In retrospect that is the definition of insanity and clearly our heroine was in its deepest depths. Truth be told, this is a story that should have been summed up in 300 pages. It was just too longwinded for my taste. the ghost of Farrida for example, should have been exorcised a long time ago instead, her ghost dogs the footsteps of our hero and heroine making me question if either of them truely believes they have moved on from their tragic circumstances given the fact that our heroine tends to recite Farrida's words verbatim at every turn. Yes the message is conveyed that over time she will reclaim herself, mind body and soul but as it stood in the novel,I thought it too soon for her to make such a level of commitment to Mason only a few months after escaping the mouth of hell. I still felt the Stockholm syndrome was very much still in play w/ their romance despite the author's efforts to dispell it. Actually, I blame the author because she lingered in that world for 3/4s of the book making it impossible for anyone to buy into Jessica's (our heroine) "growth" from her harrowing experience. It all came across as too rushed in the end.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jess was stolen by a corrupt and cruel vampire 5 yrs ago. Forced to do unspeakable things and endure horrible torture she is quite traumatized. The only thing that got her through these five years is a diary she found depicting the love and life of Farida and Mason. When opportunity presents itself Jess is able to kill the cruel vampire that had held her hostage for so long. Wanting to complete one thing before she dies she heads to the Sahara to see Farida's burial site. On her deathbed from killing her previous master she makes it to Farida's eternal resting place. What she didn't expect to find was Mason and the fact he is a vampire. Unable to let her go Mason mark's her as his servant in order to grant her a chance at a real life. Flashing back in forth between Farida's journal and Jess' POV this is an incredible story of love lost and new love beginning. Understandably Jess has a hard time accepting what a severant life is suppose to be and that most vampires are not abusive. Being an erotic novel, it isn't what i expected, the erotica parts is mostly hearing what Jess went through and what Mason wants to do with her. There aren't that many scenes with Jess and Mason actually together having sex. Not to say that it isn't sexy as hell, just in different ways.
I loved this book, loved the journey Jess and Mason went through. There were also apperances of Lyssa & Jacob and Dev & Danny.
Highly reccomend this novel

Her characters include everything from vampires, mermaids, witches and angels, to boardroom executives, cops and simple housemaids.

Free excerpts from all her works are available at www.storywitch.com, and additional vignettes, character interviews and graphics inspired by the work are at the fan forum site, accessible via www.storywitch.com/community.

Though much of her work is BDSM, she has built her reputation on award-winning romances with absorbing characters who not only attract fans of the genre, but readers who would "never" read BDSM romance. "Whatever genre you're writing, if the characters are compelling and sympathetic, the readers are going to want to see what happens to them. It can be the coolest storyline ever, but if the reader could care less whether the hero or heroine survive (in fact, in some cases they may be rooting for their destruction just so they can be done with the darn thing), then it's not a story worth reading."
