From Goodreads:  Regency London – a dizzying whirl of balls and young ladies pursued by charming men.

But the Woodmore sisters are hunted by a more sinister breed: Lucifer’s own.

Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member the Dracule – a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls – the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral … until Angelica.

Angelica Woodmore possess the Sight, an ability invaluable to both sides of a looming war among the Dracule. Her very scent envelops Voss in a scarlet fog of hunger – for her body and her blood. But he is utterly unprepared for the new desire that overcomes him – to protect her.

Now Voss must battle his very nature to be with Angelica … but this vampire never backs down from a fight.

Review Copy from NetGalley (requested by me)

What I Loved: Angelica is a smart, centered, and grounded woman who gets thrown into a world of Vampires, Hunters, and Old Feuds!  The thing I loved most is that she was written like a true Historical Romance leading lady with the Supernatural thrown in.  She dresses proper, speaks proper, and most of all tries to act like a woman of her stature.  It really made this book really enjoyable to me.  Voss is a great vampire!  He likes women, sex, blood, and games to keep his life interesting.  It was kind of nice to have a good old fashioned vampire in a book.  He wasn’t a bad man but he is a very good Vampire!  When he and Angelica meet you know it is going to be one interesting connection between them.

What I Liked: Dimitri, Miai, Chas, and all the other characters.  They really added a richness of story and detail.  Sometimes it was hard to remember this was Voss’ book because Dimitri was such a huge part but overall that wasn’t so bad.

Complaints:  Really this has nothing to do with the story but the cover and blurb really don’t do this book any favors.  The story has much more action and thrills than even eluded to in the blurb and the historical aspect was really fascinating.

Why I gave a 3.75:  During the middle of the book the story got a little choppy in pacing and storyline but overall this was a fantastic read.  I really did enjoy it and will be reading the rest of the series!

Who I would recommend it too: Paranormal Romance Readers

    Hells yeah to a good old fashion vampire story. You know I've been looking for one. But I got to agree, the cover and the blurb do nothing for me. Voss looks demonic more than sexy. But that wont stop me from adding it to my TBR. P.S. In which MB book does Hunter appear? I just finished book one and he wasn't mentioned. πŸ™
