Caressed by Moonlight by Amanda J. Greene
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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, Dorian 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.
I was given this book in place for an honest review. This is book one of the "Rulers of Darkness" series, this book takes place around Dorian the king of his vampire clan, and Victoria an orphaned young woman just trying to keep her sister. Now while reading this book, it immediately had me engrossed. It however, reminded me of Lara Adrian's midnight breed series and of Christine Feehans Carpathian/ Dark series, but set in the Victorian time frame. Which is a good thing because both series and authors are quite amazing. I whipped through this and am glad the author sent me all 3 books. So I can just continue on with the stories without any delay. I definitely liked how this book ended because it set up the next book, that makes it 100% intriguing, and unfortunately I cannot tell you why because it will ruin a few things that need to be read in the first book. So with that being said, if you like authors like Lara Adrian and Christine Feehan, then definitely grab yourself a copy of "Caressed by Moonlight". You won't be disappointed.
