    (This book has been given to me by the author to review it)

    "A Taste For Passion" is the first book in the Kendrian Vampires series by Patrice Michelle and I have to say that it's a powerful start! Fast-paced and erotic as hell, this book knows how to arouse the senses!

    The story is about Rana, a young woman who recently lost her beloved grandfather and Lucian, a vampire who has lost his mate many years ago and now he's expecting her reincarnation. One day Rana bought a ring which belonged to his dead mate and he now he believes that he found again his mate. But the truth is that he found something more. The true love!

    Rana is an amazing character! She is a good person and through the story she had to deal with a lot! Her grief over the death of her grandfather made her gone wild for a while and then when Lucian made his appearance she realized that she needs to feel more carefree. It seems that she had a lonely life, because after the life with her abusive father, she didn't really trust anyone except her grandfather.

    The vampire on every woman's dreams?? That's Lucian! He is sexy as hell, very protective, smart and successful! But what I liked the most? Although it seems at the beginning that he will believe that his dead mate is now Rana, that's not the case! He knows from the start the Rana is another person and he loves her for that. He had to deal with many things also. Lucian isn't just a vampire, he is the one who will be the leader of all the vampires and some of the vampires aren't very comfortable with the idea and they are dangerous. But he knows how to deal with them and how to protect what he loves the most!

    A very good romance story, very well-written, fast-paced and with amazing characters! I totally recommend this book!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Love, Steamy Romance!!! December 13, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    A Taste for Passion is HOT! HOT! HOT! I love the way Patrice Michelle wrote Lucian's character. This man knows what to say to a woman. I kept thinking: why can't men really talk this way? Then I remember, oh yeah, it's only those sexy, gorgeous vampire guys that can talk heart-swooning romance. But this is why I read books, and author Patrice Michelle is definitely an awesome Romance author. Michelle pulled me into this fantastic vampire world. And I will be reading more about these gorgeous vampire men of the five vampire clans in the rest of the series.

    Rana, who has just lost her grandfather, walks into an antique store trying to take her mind off the grief she feels for her grandfather. She buys an antique ring, but this is no ordinary ring. Lucian has put a spell on the ring so that when a woman--the only one who can be his mate--puts it on, it will release a smell that only he and his mate can smell. There's only one problem with this, Rana's not ready to become a vampire mate, and definitely not keen on the idea of being Lucian's reincarnated fiancée.

    Lucian is of the Kantrians clan, and it's time he takes his position as the new Vite to lead the five different clans. Now, after waiting eighty years for his mate, Lucian has found her and he's ready for Rana to stand by his side and to become the Vite. But Kraid is of the the Ruean clan and has his own plans of who the next Vite leader will be. And Kraid is going to make sure its not going to be the human lover Lucian.

    A Taste for Passion is true to its title. The romance between Rana and Lucian is beautiful and passionate, along with fantastic drama and action. I also enjoyed the sneak peek of the first chapter to the next book in this series, A Taste of Revenge, that takes you into Ian of the Ruean clan's story. I recommend A Taste for Passion as must read.

    Your typical romance novel, except with the vampire twist. Not great, not terrible. I did enjoy reading the book and would read more from this author when looking for a quick read.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Vampire Romance April 29, 2013
    By Lynn

    A good vampire romance story. Not the best I have read. Characters probably could have been more fully developed. Very steamy but felt the romance was a little awkward. An OK read if you like Vampire romances.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Passion is the name of the game!! December 25, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Lucian is literally a to-die-for male lead in this first book of the series by Patrice Michelle. He is strong, he is gorgeous, he has the deep, dark mysterious thing going for him and above all he is so in love with Rana that he makes us melt into puddles at his feet. Well written, sinfully sexy and soulfully romantic this novel has a lot to offer not only as an action filled vampire paranormal read but as a love story. Each book stands alone although the characters interweave maintaining a good continuity of the Kendrian world so all I can add is get reading, you won't be disappointed.

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is book 1 in the Kendrian Vampires series. Lucien and Rana's story. It was somewhat entertaining. Even though it's fantasy there were times that it felt fake. I liked the intensity with which Lucien loved Rana even through time. Rana was too stubborn for my taste so she annoyed me at times even though I liked her character. Even though I rated only 3 stars I would read the next books in the series but only if they came free.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad December 23, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The story was good enough, but it just didn't tip the scales to great for me. I would have to say the story and characters were warm, not HOT. If you are looking for a breezy, vampire love story, then I recommend this tale. If you looking for blazing heat with erotic deeds, then this probably isn't the book for you.
