Vampire for Christmas - Felicity E. Heaton
Initially, I had difficulty getting in to the story.  At one point, I thought of giving up on it, but I placed it aside for a while and read other books in the process. Eventually I picked it back up, and realised it was not all bad.
 
When I took up this book, I thought I would be reading about vampires, oh boy was I wrong. The story explored the concept of reincarnation, immortality, curses and time travel.
 
What I liked
 
Fascinating Premise
 
I found the story unique  It is my first time reading a romance where reincarnation combined with time travel and immortality was a major theme.  I thought the author handled the concept well.
 
Supense/Mystery
 
The suspense/mystery thread kept me on my toes. Honestly, I never expected that much intensity, but I found myself on edge as I tried figuring out who was behind the attacks on the island. As the story progressed so did my suspicions about the stalker’s identity. The author tried to throw me off the scent, however another attack happened, which led me to I was correct in my initial assessment.
 
The Story
 
I loved how the story played out for the most part. The writing is exquisite. I was fascinated by the vivid descriptions of the island and the detailed history of the protagonists’ past lives.
 
The Romance
 
At first I thought this would be another insta-love romance, but as the story developed, I realised it was not the case.  Instead their love spanned several centuries, so when Connie came to the island, his soul instantly recognised her.  It was easy to buying into Sylvester’s the instant connection with Connie
 
 
What I did not like
 
The slow start to the story is a challenge. It took me a while to warm up to it.
 
Characters
I did not connect with the characters. They lacked depth, which is surprising given all they went through.  Since her attack, Connie had been looking over shoulder and living in fear.  However, I did not get the feeling she was scared. Her actions were contrary to her experiences.  Sylvester did not fare any better for me. For someone who has lived many lives I did not expect him to get caught off guard by the events on the island.
 
Conclusion/Recommendation
 
This was not a favourite read. There were some enjoyable moments, but it was not enough to wow me. This is my first time reading the author’s work, but I am not averse to giving her another shot.
 
The purpose of this review is not to deter you from picking up this title. It is my perspective and it is possible your experience will be different from mine. That being said if you enjoy suspense, romance, time travel and reincarnation then you may enjoy Immortal Billionaire.

Early Review! The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire # 6) Kate Baxter
The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire series) - Kate Baxter

 

 

He was one of the most feared creatures in the supernatural world, and yet, she was drawn to him unlike any other. His scent ignited her thirst. The sight of him drove her mad with want...

Lovers forever--or enemies to the death? 

Sasha Ivanov was born to be wild. A vampire party girl, she stalks the L.A. clubs at night. Dancing. Drinking. Indulging her darkest appetites. Never sated, she's always looking for more: more danger, more excitement, more blood. But when she enters a supernatural fight club--and is tethered to her mortal enemy--Sasha realizes she's playing the most dangerous game of all...

Ewan Brun was born to kill vampires. A powerful berserker and unbeaten champion, he doesn't need a weapon to be deadly. He is the weapon. But when his soul becomes captive to the most beautiful vampire he's ever seen, he is all but powerless. He cannot resist Sasha--and cannot fight his desires. Is their love strong enough to defeat the gathering forces of darkness that threatens to destroy them both?

 

 

 

The latest book in the Last True Vampire series is a fantastic addition to the series. Ewan and Sasha are vibrant characters that has some wickedly absorbing chemistry that is full of energy that reaches out and grabs reader’s attention and their relationship is full of turbulence and hot, steamy passion. Stories where enemies becomes lovers are always interesting to say the least but The Wicked Vampire takes it to the next level with violent pasts, alpha leaders and a couple that keeps reader guessing throughout.

 

This fast paced story is full of twists and turns along with lots of exciting action that that gives readers quite the adrenaline rush including delicious shivers of anticipation which keep them glued to the pages awaiting the next excitement that this couple seems to find themselves embroiled in. Not only is the berserker alpha up to his full itinerary of schemes that is mysterious and complex but this couple find themselves on the wrong side of some nasty demons that want things their way.

 

Kate Baxter’s Last True Vampire series is well written, unique and full of fabulous characters that readers can’t help but fall for and find themselves caught up in their lives. The Wicked Vampire is no exception as I was completely captivated by Ewan and Sasha and I can’t wait to find out what happens next in this exciting world.

 

 

 

The Wicked Vampire is the 6th book in the Last True Vampire Series.

Review: Vampire Fight Club by Larissa Ione
Vampire Fight Club (Demonica, #6.5) - Larissa Ione

What I’m Talking About:

Nathan (Nate) Sabine, a rare, daywalker vampire, has worked at an underground fight club for decades hoping to bring it down from the inside, ever since the owner, Fade, killed his wife. But Nate has become apathetic and has lost sight of his need for revenge. He hates himself. 

 

Vladlena (Lena) Paskelkov is a nurse at UGH. She’s working when one of the paramedics brings in her brother all torn up. They discover he was killed at an underground fight club. Lena decides to go undercover as a medic for the fight club’s legitimate front, the Vampire nightclub Thirst, to seek revenge for her brother’s murder.

 

Although previously released, Vampire Fight Club is one of the few (only?) Demonic stories I hadn’t read. I absolutely enjoyed diving into the old school Demonica tales. The story is set mid-series, after the original crew have their stories, but before most of the Lords of Deliverance characters are mated. It’s fast, simple, and fun. Nate and Lena share an instant attraction, although it sort of horrifies Lena as she’s not certain if Nate had anything to do with her brother’s death. But their pull is undeniable, and it gives Nate a reason to live again. It also helps Lena fulfill her own shifter needs. 

 

Vampire Fight Club is independent of the original series and can be enjoyed as a standalone or introduction to this awesome PNR series. As for fans of Underground General Hospital, this story is an entertaining, sexy addition to the Demonica series.

 

My Rating:  B, Liked It

REVIEW
I enjoyed the previous 2 books in this series but this one well it is now my new favorite.
We finally get up close and personal with the Vampire in Eion's Dungeon. You remember him right?
Victor and Eion are good friends so him being down there is for his own good.

One moment he is sitting all alone in the cage he has called home for a bit and the next he is falling head over fang for a pink haired bouncy beauty. Trixie.

Trixie is the towns dog catcher and she has to make a stop at the castle owned by the dragons.

Trixie is hilarious, full of life until she isn't.
Grab your copy and get reading...

The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire series) - Kate Baxter

This is the first book by Kate Baxter that I have read and I got it through NetGalley. It was enjoyable, passionate (refreshingly so due to my most recent NetGalley reads), had strong characters, an interesting plot, a detailed conflict and villain, and the emotional turmoil that I am so hungry for in my romances. The characters had obstacles they had to overcome in order to get to their happily ever after, and it kept me hungry for more. I will definitely go back and read more from this series from the start since this is book 6 in the series. Loved Ewan, his character and personality appealed to me a lot, and Sasha was strong enough to be his match in everything, yet still have a vulnerability that Ewan had to win over in the end. Loved the whole story from start to finish.
