"Don't leave without me," she'd said. "Not tonight. Not ever."
Although I loved to be teased...this author is pushing her luck (lol); I do not consider myself a patient person - WRITE FASTER. It has not been that long since I read the first installment, Ward of the Vampire, but I could not help myself I re-read it prior to starting My Reluctant Warden. This is a serial story, and while the reader can read this part as a standalone I do not recommend it; you will be left wondering how Angelina became captive in Morgan's home.
The first person account is remarkably well-written; like reading Angelina's diary. Considering the very short length all of the characters are incredibly well-developed. The world that Kallysten has created is filled with a realistic desire, ultimate fantasies, and sinful chocolate cake.
Disclosure: This ebook was provided to me free of charge by the author for the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments, and ratings are my own.
In Ward of the Vampire we were introduced to the main characters in this continuing story. Angelina has worked for Delilah for 5 years and has done many strange things for her without question ... at least she thinks she never questioned them.
Miss Delilah is the sister of Ward Morgan (the requisite billionaire we seem to see all too often these days in PNR) and has seen something in Angelina that she believes will be of equal interest to Morgan (the obvious "Ward" of these titles in case you were dropped on your head as a small child).
The story begins innocently enough with a typical work day of Angelina working for the professional but eccentric Delilah. The party of the year is going to be the birthday bash for Morgan Ward and only the cream of society will be getting invitations but through a series of events I won't be telling here in the review, Angelina gets to be the "and guest" with Delilah.
At this point the readers are still unaware of what is to come and I won't spoil much of it except to say that the instructions Angelina receives from Delilah when they arrive "Be nice to my brother when you see him, and don't you dare leave without me" take on a much darker and frightening meaning as the story progresses from here.
Since I HATE reviewers who tell you too much story in reviews, let me say that there are a couple of life threatening moments in the story during these two short books and what seems to be a very slowly developing romance. It should be obvious by the titles that there is some confinement issues here that are best described by reading the books. The problem is that Angelina is never sure what is real and what are her own desires become fantasy.
This is a great story which the author has decided to give to us in small portions and while it might be frustrating for a few weeks at most it will make the impact on your purse/wallet much lighter.
Bottom Line: This is an EXCELLENT story and these 2 books just give us the beginning of what I expect to be a great romance and hopefully a bit of mystery and action since there are things happening outside Ward's mansion that are not clear yet but which will have an impact on this story. 4 Stars rather than 5 mainly because this book gives us a deeper picture of each of the couple while not really moving the story along very much but this was necessary since this story so far has been character driven and has relied very little on any action (other than him having to save her from his sister). I expect things are going to heat up from here.
Although Delilah has managed to compel her again, upping the stakes in this forced relationship for everyone concerned.
Again Kallysten has moved us into a delicate dance of compulsion and desire, and leaving us with no solid clue as to which is real and which is fantasy. Angelina's behavior alternates between bratty and adult: understandable reactions to an imprisonment and the revelations that she has been exposed to.
With nothing productive to do, and no ability to leave the house, she is claustrophobic and unsettled: attracted to the sexy man that Morgan is, even as she battles her fear about his predatory nature.
A good installment that provides us some more insight into the story and characters, while the underlying question of what will happen should Delilah return still haunts everyone.
I purchased this book for my own library, and was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
