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.
Caressed by Moonlight by Amanda J. Greene is the first novel in the Rulers of Darkness Series and a fabulous book to read. The author contacted me and asked me if I was interested in reviewing this book and after reading the book description I couldn’t say no, especially if you love paranormal and historical romance.
Victoria Kingston is a young woman who just lost her parents soon after each other. She has to sell her home to pay off her father’s debts and has to move in with her strange aunt. Her aunt gives her one month to find a suitable husband or lose her position as guardian of her younger sister.
With the help of her best friend Lana she puts together a list of suitable husbands, but when she meets Prince Dorian Vlakhos all the other men fades away. Dorian is a vampire who doesn’t take no as an answer and he wants Victoria in his bed. But from the first moment they meet, she steals his heart and slowly discovers she might be his soul mate.
You would expect Dorian to be a dominate rake, but nothing is as it seems, he’s definitely dominate but also an ancient vampire king who left his clan behind to lure out this enemy. Victoria is the perfect woman for him; she is smart, caring and definitely strong enough to deal with his past and the fact that he is immortal.
Miss Greene has written a fabulous novel and mixed two great genres into one story. It was great to see the slowly growing romance between Dorian and Victoria and I found myself turning page after page to see what happened next.
There are some secondary characters that I would love to see in their own book and I really keep my fingers crossed that they will.
I truly recommend this book to every historical paranormal romance lover out there; you won’t be disappointed with this novel.
