Review Can I Keep You by Candy Nicks

Title: Can I Keep You
Author: Candy Nicks
Source: Self purchase
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel

When Kane picks up a runaway on the streets of Victorian England his only thought is to have a few days of amusement and a decent meal. He is a vampire, after all – it's what he does.

Laura has to be the most unconvincing whore he's ever met. She soon finds out that there are ways other than brute force and strength to bring a vampire to his knees. 

As they fall in love, she becomes the catalyst for his astonishing journey of redemption, bringing back all-too-painful memories of Harry, the gentle man he once was. It's not an easy road. Along the way they encounter forces of evil that have other plans for Laura and Kane. And the question neither of them really wants to answer hovers in the background. Does he turn her into a vampire like himself and risk losing her? Or will a human lifetime together be enough?

 OMG OMG. I know I sound like a 12 year old girl, but I LOVED this book.  Kane's character is so dynamic.  He is a mix between the demon that now resides in him and the earnest young man, Harry, that he used to be.  It's one of the most original takes on vampirism I've ever read.  Laura is a lost soul.  When Kane first sees her he knows she's something different. 
One of my favorite parts of the book is when Kane tries to describe what he sees when he looks at Laura, 

"You have a different kind of strength.  Yours isn't physical, it comes from inside.."  "You still have the capacity to love and inspire love."

And inspire love is just what she does.  It may be an unconventional, but nothing less than fantastic.
If you adore vampires, stories of redemption, powerful sex scenes, and extreme devotion between two people I highly recommend this title.
