Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness, #1)
Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.

Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Prince Vlakhos.

After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.

Really liked this book and the start of a new series. I didn't connect with the characters like I was hoping to but I still enjoyed it a lot. Victoria just plain got on my nerves. Just when I thought I couldn't stand her anymore, the table is turned and Dorian is the one being dense. There isn't a dull moment while reading this and a few parts that made me laugh out loud.

  1. OOoo I saw the cover for this one a while back and really loved it. Always so hard when you just don't connect with the main characters even if you like the writing.

    Thanks for the heads up on this one. I think I'm gonna give it a go but I'll have a little pile of chocolate on hand just in case they make me twitchy too ;)

    Happy Reading!
