More a 3 3/4 than a 3.

If you are looking for a short, well written erotic story with graphic and explicit sex in it then this is a book that you will enjoy. It is a short historical paranormal novella with vampires that will set your body on fire. It's a light read that actually contains a good plot, good charactization and a great time & world building in such a short story.

Yes, it is short and I would have loved it to be longer - but it is a novella

Yes - it is very graphic and explicit but that is also stated in the warning part of the description - and I do like a little (okay, a lot) of heat in my reads ever now and again.

Is it worth the money - in my opinion, yes - I did enjoy it.

The only reason I did not give it a 4 or 5 star rating is I try and reserve those ratings for books that I consider ones that I can not imagine not having read or reading over and over. This novella was interesting, entertaining, a light, smooth read with plenty of heat - just what I needed at the time. In fact, I did enjoy this novella enough to start reading the Scanguard Vampire Series by this author.

Wow, this is not for the faint of heart..when they mean explicit and graphic...it really doesn't even begin to cover it! The vampire theme wasn't played up as I thought it would be and lacked romance. This was just pure sex. If you're looking for "that" type of book, this is for you. I don't mind the descriptive nature of some books, but this was overkill. Author could be great and story could have been great...if there had been more "story" to it. Hope the author takes things to a different level. Will check back on her later.

Tina Folsom is truly a master when it comes to erotic fiction, with a paranormal twist, of course. Anyone who has read her Scanguard Vampire series knows that she writes a great sexy vampire story.

Venice Vampyr is all that, and a historical story as well. It is also smoking hot. It is so hot, that a cold shower is recommended after the last page is turned. Isabella rescued Raphael from drowning, because that was the fate her first husband suffered. She takes him into her home to nurse him back to health, however she finds herself attracted to him from the very start.

Its this attraction that gets her in trouble with her late husband's cousin and results in her quicky marriage to Raphael. Raphael then discovers that Massimo is more than just a hateful cousin out to ruin, Isabella to get to her fortune, he's a vampire slayer! (of the sort) Isabella, doesn't know that her new husband is a vampire, but not to worry, she'll find out!

It is hard for an author to really develop characters in about 130 pages, but Tina has done it. You learn a lot about Isabella, probably more so than Raphael. You even get a good backstory on her first husband. That ties in with "The Guardians." She's a very strong character that follows her heart, even when her head might be saying something different.

My only gripe is that this was a novella. I would have loved a full story about Isabella and Raphael. I definitely would have liked to have learned more about his past and a bit more about "The Guardians." It would have been a little something to fill the pages between the sex scenes, and this story was full of those.

I highly recommend this story if you are a fan of erotic fiction and if you like vampires, it is definite must read. Also, check out the sequel Venice Vampyr: Final Affair

Great opening scene, with a vampire drowning in a canal because someone pushed him. Immediately descends into LOL wannabe erotica by an author who doesn't know the meaning of good writing or character development. Ludicrously predictable sex scenes complete with all the hallmarks of really atrocious writing, like diction shifts galore from slang to vulgarities to silly words for female anatomy like button and nubbin. Ain't that just too precious: her nubbin and his shaft mixed with vernacular obscenities in same sentence. Pretty bad writing. Uninteresting LOL sex scenes. Not erotic at all. Author should have added warning: silly, unintentionally comical, poorly written p*o*r*n*o

THIS IS AN ADULT REVIEW OF AN ADULT BOOK AND CONTAINS MATERIAL ONLY SUITABLE FOR ADULTS!

Mmm, hmm, this certainly is erotica. In Folsom's blog she comments:

Warning Labels on my BooksVenice Vampyr (Venice Vampyr #1)
Dear Readers,

when I put warning labels on my books, I really do mean what I say.

Venice Vampyr carries the following warning label: This vampire novella is sexually more explicit than my other books. So, if you're a little squeamish about things like voyeurism and other sexual taboos, it's safe to assume you won't like this one.

It appears that a reader on B&N did not heed my warning and read the book anyway, and then promptly gave me a 1-star review because she couldn't take it. That's why the warning is there in the first place: I know that not everybody likes their sex quite as steamy and uninhibited as my characters do. So I try to warn people when things might be beyond what some readers can tolerate.

By the way, I do wear this 1-star review like a badge of honor. It's almost as good as being banned by the Catholic Church!

Happy reading!

My take
In Venice Vampyr Folsom uses an economy of language with a reasonable balance between mono-or-dia-logue. Sometimes the dialogue is a bit archaic, maybe a bit florid. The language used in erotica is often thus, regardless of the era in which the story is set (here, the early 1800s). I find the language often brings a bit of levity to a hot situation.

His rampant cock was poised at her moist channel, which still quivered from the aftershocks of her orgasm.,...She was too tight.
