Colleen Gleason - When twilight burns

Victoria Gardella, one of the youngest Illa Gardella venators is dealing with the fact that she drank vampire Beauregard’s blood. Nobody knows what will happen with Victoria after all of this, it’s possible that she turns into the very creature she hunts every night. But because of the two “vis bulla’s”, a piercing that give powers to the ventator, Victoria was able to hold back the turning.

When she is healed enough, Victoria returns to London where her mother immediately starts planning for her to get back in the world of the ton and another marriage. But Victoria has other things on her mind, because it seems that Lilith, Queen of the Vampires is back in London too. So Victoria, Max and Sebastian have to find out what Lilith wants and prevent that from happing.

When twilight burns by Colleen Gleason is the fourth novel in her Gardella series. I just love the whole regency rules and balls mixed up with the vampire and demon slaying. Who would have thought that a young woman, wearing layers of fabric can really slay a vampire?

We already know that Victoria is strong, determined and the youngest venator every. This book continues where The Bleeding Dusk left off. Victoria was bitten by Vampire Beauregard and was force to drink his blood in return, hoping that she will turn into the very creature she has been fighting against. But luckily for her wearing two “vis bulla’s” saved her from turning, but make her even stronger than she already were.

Her attraction to the two men in her life is still very strong. Sebastian is the great-grandson of vampire Beauregard and is determined to wind Victoria’s heart once and for all, maybe even make her his wife. She is attractive to him and they even shared some passionate nights together, but her heart is telling her something else.
Max is the other men and also a venator. But he was under a spell by Lilith and he isn’t sure if that spell is totally gone. Although his heart is telling him to love the woman he cares about, his mind is telling him something else. Victoria is in danger and the only thing to keep Lilith of her back is leaving her behind.

Ever time I pick up a book in the Gardella Series I’m wondering how this love triangle between Victoria, Max and Sebastian will go. Who will she choose? I think we have to wait a little longer to find that out.

A terrific vampire series settle in London and Italy with two strong male characters, fighting to win the heart of the woman they love. Well what kind of woman wouldn’t want that…two men fighting over her.
