His determination to succeed in business has left no room in his life for love. Now, a beautiful and deadly succubus has teleported into his dark, decadent world and is in danger of enslaving his heart.
Andreu’s future entails opening an erotic theatre like Vampirerotique, gaining wealth, women and power, not shackling himself to a single female, but he cannot deny the dangerously seductive succubus who stirs his anger and passion, and tempts him like no other—he will have her.
The moment their eyes meet, Varya knows she cannot have the exotic dark vampire who sets her pulse racing. His shadowed aura marks him as forbidden, but the hungers he awakens in her are too intense to resist—she must have a taste.
When an erotically-charged kiss ignites their soul-searing passion and reveals something dangerous about Andreu, will Varya leave forever or will she dare to risk all in pursuit of something she thought was beyond her reach?
As Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series continues she manages to keep revving up the heat level and bringing together characters who fight obstacles both within themselves and outside forces to discover what they truly long for to experience. In this case it is between Andreu and Varya who are two individuals who believe that their life is just perfect as it is without any commitment to anyone, however, when they meet that belief is put to the test.
Andreu is at the theatre temporarily to help out his brother Javier and then he plans to go back to Barcelona and open his own theatre and live that ultimate life: riches, fame, power and women. He in no ways plans to tie himself to one woman like his brother and the others at the theatre have done. His strong, powerful mannerism and resistance to having a relationship is shattered when one night during a performance when he and the other powerful vampires sense a being in their midst. When he accidentally looks into the eyes of the intruder his body is rocked with the need to possess the creature and make her his despite what his mind is saying.
Varya is a succubus and as a result of her sexual needs she is naturally drawn to the energy that is emulating from the theatre during one of the performances. Varya knows very well to keep herself cloaked from the vampires as her species and vampires do not get along and if they knew she was there they would kill her. However, while she is watching the performance and becoming so engrossed in the sexual energy she drops her cloak and Andreu spots her. The moment that their eyes meet Varya is drawn to him like a moth to a flame however there is one disturbing aspect about him. His aura has darkness surrounding him and according to her people anyone who has darkness and is unreadable is dangerous. However, despite the danger Varya can't help herself to keep away from the theatre and Andreu.
I have to say that when these two got together they burned up the pages. I mean a vampire and a succubus together can only mean some very, hot erotic scenes that I think Felicity out did herself this time. Not only is Andreu a very intense, naughty lover but there is one scene in the book where the intensity of the images will have you needing to take a long cold shower to cool off from the heat.
What I truly loved about this book (and so far I love this series) is that Andreu is a tough alpha who doesn't need anyone and even though his body is raging for Varya his has the willpower to hold back. Of course it is frustrating at times his refusal to give in, but it provided a more realistic feel to the story. Instead of just giving into his desires he battles them, tries to rationalize them and understand them, but ultimately is overpowered by force of his need for this woman.
Readers of this series and of this book will not be disappointed as it delivers everything that an erotic paranormal romance books needs to have; hot, sexy alpha vampire males who despite their hard exterior shell demonstrate passion, tenderness and devotion that burns like an inferno for the one woman that they are meant to be with for all of eternity.
