It certainly has been a while since I’ve read a book like this…
And you know, it wasn’t bad!
Mistress of the Vampire (Release Date: December 21, 2017)
He had a hungry look in his eyes. He had been searching, seeking, until he found me. I was burning under his gaze, I wanted to rip my clothes off, I wanted to run away. Who was this beautiful man and what did he want from me?
Magnus Redman became my boss and my lover. I was young, innocent and inexperienced, the opposite of him, and he knew just how to penetrate the soft core of my mind until all I could think about was him. Our passion was intense, crazy, sexy, white hot and dangerous, just like him. I craved him like a drug, his hands, his body, his teeth……
But then hidden secrets and painful revelations from the past threatened to tear us apart. And we found ourselves battling a powerful force hell-bent on revenge and destruction. How much would we be willing to sacrifice to save the ones that we love?

Like I said, it’s been ages since I read a book of this genre. You may or may not know this, but I’m not crazy about romance novels. There are exceptions however, and one is a good, sexy vampire book. And sparkly, vegan vamps need not apply because I’m kind of a purist when it comes to vampire stuff and I love me some broody, tortured vampires. Particularly the reformed ones. Yum!
Enter Magnus, a hot, billionaire vampire complete with a dark and bloody past. He knows he shouldn’t but he can’t help but be attracted to our heroine. A sweet, HUMAN, young woman who perhaps has a mysterious past of her own.
Star-crossed lovers, who can’t keep their hands (and other body parts) of each other. Sounds good right?
Well there is a little more to the story than their affair and that’s what made the book a far better read for me.
The only issue I had with it was how this storyline played out. More of a technical issue really, as the story is written well and is very entertaining. Everything plays out in the present for a good portion of the book and then all of a sudden, flashback sequences start happening featuring new, mystery characters. It’s not bad just a little awkward. Eventually at the end, everything ties together but I think this could have been done a little better.
All in all, a good read that was steamy and fun. And of course, it had my kind of vampires. Fun fact about me? I was very much in the “Buffy and Spike” camp vs “Buffy and Angel”. Yes Angel was broody and sexy but he was almost too tortured. Spike was far more fun.
