I loved how Greene layered the emotional component of the story on top of the paranormal and romantic ones. This is a complex tale that will engage you in many ways. At the same time it’s still fast paced and fun. The author’s exquisitely vivid descriptions bring this story to life in a big way. It is positively sinful! Greene also continues to develop her unique concept of the vampire world without shattering our preconceived notion. It all rolls up into an unforgettable story.

And don’t even ge
The second book in the Rulers of Darkness series captivated me more than the first. I really liked Dimitri and Kerstyn. Although everything between them happened amazingly fast, their struggles were great. Plenty of action, lots of drama, and a few tortured souls.
My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

With a growl, Dimitri placed his feet flat on the bed and thrust his hips up, impaling her hard and deep. "Suck," he hissed.

***Please note, this book was gifted to me by the author***

Chapter 27. Once you've read this book, you will know exactly what I mean. No really, trust me on this one...

First and foremost, I would like to thank Ms. Greene for giving me to the opportunity to read and review this second installment of her Rulers of Darkness series. I fell in love w
I loved the first book of this series. It was set in the Regency period and the vampire King Dorian was sooooo alpha and sexy. This new installment did not wow me but I like this series and will read book 3 when it comes out.

The hero is vampire Dimitri Arsov. He is the last remaining pure vampire and has come back from the dead. No, he was never dead but just taking a 400 year nap because that's when his mate would be at humping age and living in Vegas. There could have been more b

This one I'm going to have to give only 2 and half stars. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there was just not enough there between Dimitri & Kerestyn. Everything about their meeting, to their "relationship" to their union was just too easy. Way too fast. Too simple. And not believable or even emotionally charged in my opinion.

Now I loved Gannon (would not mind knowing more about him) I'm very intrigued with Gabriel and the obvious opening for his story that you will read about in this

You’re dead. Everyone believes you’re dead. So they won’t be too surprised when you come back to life, right?

Dimitri is the last living pureblood vampire, believed to be dead at the hands of a corrupt and tyrannical clan leader. But he’s not. He’s been plotting his return for centuries, having a score to settle with the fool who crossed him. There is nothing in the world that can stop him from his revenge…except possibl

I truly enjoyed the first book in the Rulers of Darkness series, Caressed by Moonlight. So I jumped at the chance to be apart of Ms. Greene's blog tour for the second book. Caressed by Night has a different feel to it since it is set in modern times in Las Vegas verses Caressed by Moonlight's 1800s, London setting. But it has all the same hotness. And you get to see a little of Dorian and Victoria from Caressed by Moonlight which I really liked getting a update on where they are at in their live ...more
"Sin, danger and sex all in one" is how Kerstyn describes Dimitri. This second in the Rulers of Darkness series is even better than the first. Vampires and witches take center stage in Greene's world (but shifters, currently off screen, are coming out of the background in future books). There is a lot of simmering chemistry between the characters as well as romance.

While the first book had a historical setting, this one fast forwards to present day. While you don't need to have read the first
Bending The Bookshelf
Amanda J. Greene's Caressed by Night is the second book in her Rulers of Darkness series, following her scintilating debut, Caressed by Moonlight.

Whether you're a lover of paranormal romances, or simply a romantic at heart, Amanda knows how to caress just the right emotions in the read, drawing you deeper and deeper into her story, and entangling you with some rather unique twists so that you not only can't let go . . . you won't want to.

While I didn't care for the setting here as much as I did
I was suitably impressed with book 1 in this series and the way it slipped paranormal beasties into a historical romance setting. This book propels us into the present and manages to keep the tension that I enjoyed in the first book alive and humming. It helps that Dimitri is a warrior of the old world who has managed to integrate himself nicely into the present. It also helps that we get to see how characters from book 1 have weathered the years since then. I always love that!

As far as Kerstyn

I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
Caressed by Night is book two in the Rulers of Darkness Series.
In the matter of one day, Kerstyn's life is ruined. She was attacked, her roommate/best friend kicked her out, she lost her job and her car is beyond repair. Rescued by a 'blonde god' she curses herself for not giving him her number.
Dimitri is back from the dead. For over three hundred years he faked his death to the world and now he is back more
This book isn't terrible. The writing is okay, the pacing was also ok if a bit fast at times, and the characters weren't the same people but with different names. So i give the author that much at least.

Unfortunately, the writing has a long way to go. It all seemed very amateurish in the execution and the flow of it all. The characters just felt like puppets on strings; doing things simply cause the author told them to and the events that happened only happened because they were set up that way.
Kersten Ingmar is having a really bad week, she's lost her job, her apartment, and her car is broke down. Then to top it all off she's almost attacked leaving the bar one night. She's rescued by a sexy dark and dangerous stranger. Dimitri Arsov is in Vegas for two reasons, to get revenge on the man who tried to kill him and to find his mate. He knows she's in Vegas but he doesn't know where or who she is yet. Can he save his mate from death or is her fate set in stone? Will he get his revenge or ...more

Starts off strong, but it loses steam

One benefit for most vampires is that they usually live pretty darn long. Amanda Greene’s Caressed by Moonlight, Book 1 of the Rulers of Darkness series, was a delightful period novel focusing on vampire Dorian Vlakhos and his human love, Victoria Kingston. Fast-forward a good couple of centuries and though those two are alive and well, Dmitri Arsov and Kerstyn Ingmar are the central characters in this novel.

I didn't really that interesting at first about this book, not that exciting to start read this book.

So, I just thought why not, read this one (trial error mode), even when I am not interested, I'll just gonna stop reading.

One thing that ticked me was this one mysterious 'ancient' vampire, Dimitri Arsov, who (at first I didn't know his age really is) is lonely to the bone (literally), stated his way back to society after 400 years KIA.

I see his character is someone I'd like to surrender to, at m
Caressed by Night by Amanda Greene is the second novel in the Rulers of Darkness Series and I have to say it’s another fabulous book. It’s a little different from the first novel, because while Caressed by Moonlight was set the 1800’s, this novel was set in the modern day; but it definitely had the same vibe.

The main characters Dimitri Arsov and Kerstyn Ingmar are an amazing couple. Dimitri is one of the first vampires ever made and was thought dead for centuries. Betrayed by his second in comma

If you haven’t read the first in this series all I have to say is get reading! This second installment in the Rulers Of Darkness series was fantastic, even better than the first. Though you could read these books out of order, similarly to the Black Dagger Brotherhood books, it doesn’t detrimentally effect the enjoyment of the series if you read it out of order but you would understand the other characters that get mentioned more if you did.

Dimitri is the last pure vampire. He is the king of his clan and has been assumed to be dead for the last 400 years. He’s resurfaced to battle his enemy and find his mate.
Kerstyn is an art historian who has stumbled into some bad luck. She’s lost her job, her car broke down, and her roommate kicks her out of their apartment. Then her friend Silvie introduces her to Dimitri. He offers her a place to stay and the use of one of his cars while she’s job hunting. Their passion and attraction
I have wanted to read this book for months as it has glowing reviews on Goodreads. While it was a full length book, it didn’t take overly long to read. We meet Kerstyn Ingmar as she leaves a club and is rescued by a dark, sexy man. While she is attracted, he bundles her into a cab and sends her home. When arriving home she has an argument with her roommate and is kicked out. No where else to turn too, another friends suggests she stay with someone she knows. That someone is Dimitri, the man who ...more

I received a copy of this book fort the blog tour, and I have to say I’m glad I got to read it. I liked Mss Greene’s new take on how vampires are created –The Ancient Vampires(Purebloods) that is.

Dmitri Arsov is a the last Pureblood with unfathomable powers. Many years ago Ven, his would be successor arranged to have him killed by Red Order witch. Thankfully for Dmitri’s ability to see the future, he played along, and let Ven think he was dead. Centuries later Dmitri decides it is time to claim
This book is Dimitri's story, the last pureblood vamp. He meets Kerysten who just lost her job, got kicked out of her best friend's home, and her just broke down. She meets him one night in an alley. Dimitri can see the future and has had visions of meeting his mate and taking back power in his kingdom. He's also had a vision of his mate being shot and dying.

Today's review is on Caressed By Night by Amanda J Greene

Caressed by Night is the second installment in Greene's Rulers of Darkness series and is just as hot and steamy as the its predecessor. Filled with love, lust, sex, and romance, this tale of finding ones soul mate will touch your heart as well as your libido.

Dimitri Arsov is the last pureblood vampire. After faking his death and living underground for 400 years, he is ready to return to the vampire world to seek his revenge and reclaim his
Whenever I throughly enjoy a first novel in a series – I’m worried the author won’t be able to keep it up for the next book.

That’s not a worry I needed to have with regards to Carressed by Night. Amanda J. Greene has more than delivered with this second installment of the Rulers of Darkness.

This book is different from most vampire novels in terms of timing. I’ve always wondered why vampires who often live up to thousands of years always find their soul mates within months of each other. They liv

I really enjoyed the first book, Caressed by Moonlight, and this book was just as good. I liked Dorian from book 1 and i'm not going to lie- I wanted this book to be about him too. I pouted for a good 10-15 pages when I was first reading about Dimitri. But then I started to get into his story and I started liking him, a lot.

Dimitri is constantly waging an inner battle. I felt so bad for him, he could never just let go and be in the moment. Kerstyn was really good for him. She tried to help him
This was another solid read. I enjoyed the plot and was pleasantly drawn in with the wonderful characters once again. There were some slight grammar errors, but nothing that is too distracting, kinda of similar to the first book.
The story takes place almost 200 years after Dorian and Victoria's story, which I found delightful, not that I mind historical but present day is refreshing. This story is about Dimitri and Kerstyn. I enjoyed their story immensely, however I did feel the relationship bet

Dimitri has risen from the dead. Well almost. He comes out of hiding to take his rightful place as King of his clan. The vampire has watched his enemy for 100 years. Planning and waiting for the right moment. Along the way, he finds his mate, a human named Kerstyn. Dimitri is thrilled to finally know who his mate is and he's determined to protect her at all costs. The loyalty of his clan is as strong as ever.

With Amanda being a fresh face in the published book world, I as a seasoned reader hoped her first amazing book Caressed by Moonlight was not an anomaly. I am truly excited to say Amanda does not disappoint! Her new addition to the Rulers of Darkness series Caressed by Night is as captivating as the first book.

Amanda has such talent when it comes to her character development. Her characters have histories and have experienced joy, pain, struggle and everything that goes along with living. You fe

Plot & Character:
A delicious morsel of paranormal romance!

Ms. Green has delivered another great read and one I anxiously awaited since finishing her debut novel, Caressed by Moonlight. Based on a world filled with curses and powerful rulers of the darkness this series has quickly climbed to the top of my favorites list.

At the beginning of the book the author has provided a very helpful and well organized glossary of
