They’ve burned for each other for two years, the forbidden attraction between them growing each night. Now resisting the sinful desires of their hearts is becoming impossible.
Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his.
Lilah has fought her desire for Javier since arriving at his theatre as a servant but each glance he has stolen, his eyes promising pleasure that will satisfy her longing for him, has chipped away at her defences and she can no longer deny her need and her forbidden feelings for the powerful vampire male.
When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilah’s master keep them apart forever?
My Review -
This is the first book in Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance Series and I have to say she is off to a very good start. This series seems to have a darker, sensual vibe to it and definitely more erotic. The story is about a forbidden love between a vampire and a human who is owned by another vampire set amidst the backdrop of an erotic theatre that caters to vampires and their needs.
Javier and Lilah have tried to hide and keep their passion for each other under control for the past two years until it is too much for either of them to conceal any longer. Though this is a very erotic book with some very intense scenes it is a very tender and loving story of two people unleashing and sharing everything with each other despite the consequences, and the consequences are severe. No other vampire is allowed to touch a human that is owned by another otherwise face death. Despite the knowledge of their doomed love they are willing to try and find a means to stay together. The only thing is will they be able to defeat everyone and everything in their way of being together.
I really enjoyed how Felicity was able to develop not only the strong emotional connection that the characters had for each other, but the description of the scenes itself. The author has an amazing ability to make the reader experience every nuance that is occurring in a scene from the emotional components between the characters to the description of the scenery.
Since this is the first book in the series we should get to know more about the other vampires that are part of Vampireerotique theatre in subsequent books. The one I am most looking forward to is Snow. Although he made a brief appearance he made quite an impression and made this reader very intrigued at what lurks behind the wall he has built around himself.
A wonderful addition to the paranormal erotic romance genre and one that will be a favorite for many.
