You think she's acting like 25? To me it's more like 15. I mean, spit balls? Come on, the last time I did that, I was thirteen.
The first time it was mentioned she was 40, I was shocked. I was sure it was a mistake, but no. She really is.
This was just one of many things in the book, that didn't really make sense. That Lucien was a jerk didn't help either. But what can you expect from an 800+ years old guy who is attracted to a perpetual teenager?(less)

Beautiful idea. Wonderful Sentiment.

I love the title of this book. It’s simply beautiful. I love the idea of someone telling me that they would love me “until the sun falls from the sky”. That is some great romantic crap that I fall for - hook, line and sinker! Also, I love KA’s other novels.... a lot! I am a super-fan. No one can write strong, alpha males like she can.

So Kristen Ashley can write paranormal too! Not that I ever doubted her. A different take than what you normally think of when you hear about ‘vampires’. Lucien isn't your typical vampire. And Leah... well, she's not the typical concubine.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

Fans of the paranormal romance genre are painfully aware that vampires have been done to death, and it’s hard to find a unique take on their world. They’re always immortal, tormented, domineering, powerful man-whores, and hey, some are even sparkly vegetarians… but the bottom line - they’re always the same and that gets old. Fortunately Kristen Ashley has created a unique world where vampires were once free to be what and who they are, until they were forced into hiding their true natures. Thank

Sigh. I really wanted to like this. Kristen Ashley. Vampires. It sounded awesome. Unfortunately, the male lead, Lucien, is such a HUGE d!ckhead, he ruined it for me. He wasn't sexy at all. I appreciated that the female lead, Leah, refused to give in to him when he was being an asshat (which was most of the time). I DNF'd at 39%.

I wanted to think Lucien was sexy, but he was about as sexy as this:

There were several things Lucien did that pretty much made him unredeemable to me. He isolated Leah fr

Leah Buchanan comes from a very important family of vampire concubines, these women serve the dark creatures with their blood and their bodies to keep their master's fed and always satisfied. Leah hates the idea of belonging to a Vampire in exchange of luxury and protection, she doesn't understand this concept; something that has been a tradition between humans and vampires for over five

I wasn't sure I fancied this series, mainly because I find vampire stories can get a little too complicated with all of the rules and legends vamps have to abide by, but it was a KA and a couple of reviewers mentioned alphas so I decided to go for it.

The vampires in this book reminded me of the Dark Carpathians by Christine Feehan. They are extremely is their way and their way only. Lucien could very well be a Carpathian but his ways are also different. These vampires have concubines, women and men who they only feed from and not have intimate relations with. These vampires only mate with other vampires. And that's how it was for Lucien until he saw Leah.
