Book Description

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Childishly Written September 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, the editing in the book was non-existent. Be prepared to read and then re-read statements because you will constantly be trying to figure out who said what.

I won't go into the plot because that's already been covered. I just want to point out the things that really stood out to me. First of all, I had a hard time understanding why the heroine hesitated about marrying the hero. She desperately needed to marry to save her sister but when a rich, gorgeous prince (who can't keep his hands off her - she doesn't know he's a vampire at this point) asks her to marry him, he has to practically beg her. Whatever.

Also, to me, the author strayed too far from the stereotypical vampire. For instance, he had no trouble being in the sunlight and rarely had to drink blood. Also, the author took the easy way out by using "magic" as the explanation any time something needed to happen to get out of a situation. Speaking of magic, what kind of witch gifts someone with a magical, poisonous dagger but doesnt' bother to tell her that the slightest nick will kill any vampire. You don't think that's important to mention when you give it to someone who's married to the KING of the vampires?? I think I would have mentioned that.

Like I said before, the editing was unbearable. I wouldn't read this book again for that reason alone.

Format:Kindle Edition
I wanted to like this book. I was drawn to the interesting plot and promise of well written characters. What a got was an ebook full of grammatical and formatting errors. on the bright side I did love Dorian.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful love story February 14, 2012
Format:Paperback
SO! In my world authors are like celebrities and I got to go back and forth with this author when I won a giveaway of this book. It wasn't anything crazy but it was enough for me to know she was really nice and on top of things.

With that said I was really hoping to like this book. I TOTALLY DID! I read it in one night.

Victoria Kingston has just lost both of her parents within a few months time. She is left to care for her eight year old sister and is flat broke. Victoria heads over to her aunt, who hates her because she looks so much like her mother, and asks for her help. The aunt refuses to really help too much and tells Victoria that she has 30 days to find a husband before she is thrown out of her house and will never see her sister again. So Victoria does the only thing she can do in the 1800's... She finds herself a husband.

Dorian Vlakhos is a Vampire King! He comes to London from a far away land in hopes that the Witches who hunt his people will follow him and leave his clan alone.

Dorian definitely was a character! He had personality, he was funny, smart, elegant, passionate, warm but with a warrior mentality. He was a pretty cool character. Victoria was...English. :-) I found her funny at times, mostly when she would interact with Dorian at the social gatherings. I think what I most liked about Victoria was how she wanted a love like her parents and although her marriage started as one of convenience she was determined to end it as one of love. I loved how both Victoria and Dorian interacted with the little sister, Margaret.

Right away when you hear that the book will be about vampires you think of certain obvious characteristics a vampire should have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful And Enticing! September 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Orphaned and left penniless after she ends up having to sell everything she owns to cover her father's debts, Victoria Kingston finds herself traveling to London with her little sister in tow. She ends up on her aunt's doorstep, detested by the very woman because of the fact that she resembles the woman whom, by her standards, bewitched her brother and caused him to leave everything he'd ever known behind.

Her aunt makes it clear that she's not welcome, but she's more than willing to take her sister off of her hands. She gives the girl an ultimatum, citing that she'll need to marry in order to see her sibling. She further rubs this fact in by telling Victoria that she must get this done by the end of the month or she will forfeit her right to be her sister's guardian.

With no other course of action, she confides in her best friend and together they concoct a plan that might offer Victoria the success she needs to gain an end to her own means. Yet there's one thing she hadn't counted upon, Prince Dorian Vlahkos. Dark, tall, and handsome, he stirs her blood in ways that no one else ever has. Her attraction grows by the day, yet she does her best to resist his charms.

Thrown into the streets because of a stolen kiss with the man himself, she's catapulted into a world she's never really known. Dorian can't deny that he cares for the lovely minx, although he doesn't quite understand why. Refusing to leave her on the streets, he agrees to marry her, allowing her to retain her sister's guardianship; something that she's truly grateful for.

Although, she doesn't exactly know what he is, at first, she soon comes to accept him as he is. Her heart refuses to believe that he's anything but a good man, even if he is a vampire.
