Vampire Dreams Revamped (pun intended) is the rewrite of the first novella in Gabrielle Bisset's, Victorian Erotic romance trilogy. While I liked the original Vampire Dreams I found that I enjoyed the revamped version more.

This novella is about Brandon Ridley and Arden Stephens. Brandon, a 200 year old vampire, is lonely and longs for nothing more than someone to share his life with. When Brandon met Arden he immediately desired her. Her beauty and obvious intel

"Vampire Dreams Revamped" is an amazing Prequel to a new series by Gabrielle Bisset called "Sons of Navarus. It is an extended and much improved version of the original Vampire Dreams which leads into the "Sons" series and introduces you to some of the Sons that you will meet in future books in the series.

Arden is a young homeless woman in the dangerous streets of 19th century London. As she is walking alone at night, she is accosted by a man and then rescued by our Hero, Brandon. When Arden ex

Review by Ollie for bittenbyparanormalromance

Vampire Dreams Revamped is in fact a revamp of Gabrielle Bisset's Vampire Dreams, but why revamp the story? Since Vampire Dreams Ms. Bisset has introduced readers to the "Sons of Navarus" vampires series and Vampire Dreams Revamped provides a better understanding for the set up of this series. When I read the original story I gave it 5 stars and thought it was wonderful, but I have to say this story had me more emotional involved with Brandon. In Vamp

After I read “Blood Avenged” by Gabrielle Bisset, I thought that I had to read the prequel novella from this series. Oh god! I should have known better! This novella kept me awake all night! From the beginning until the end this story is what a paranormal romance novella should be: sensual and passionate.

When you’ll read the story it would be impossible not to fall in love with Brandon and not to crave Vasilije once again! And of course, you’ll love Arden, the heroine. Brandon, although a vampir

This is my very first book I'v read by Gabrielle Bisset's. Vampire Dreams Revamped was surpisingly good. What I love about was that, there was no drama, like being shocked about vampires. I quite liked Arden and Brandon. His sire Vasilije, I hope he has a book coz he's very interesting guy :D. The book was fabulous, hawt and perfect. The ending was sweet and Gabrielle just introduced us to a new dangerous modern world for the Vampire citizens. I'm going to jump to The Sons of Navarus series soon ...more

Words can not describe how much I LOVED this book. I was pulled in from the beginning and fell completely in love with the characters. I found it so impossible to put this book down, that I read it in one sitting.

I am so glad that I came across this book and can't wait to read the next one.

Gabrielle has definitely created a fan for life!! :)

I finished "Vampire Revamped Dreams" within a couple of hours because I had a hard time putting down my Kindle. =)
Brandon has been lonely for centuries now. All he wants it to sire his own vampire, but his sire, Vasilije, will not let him. Every time Brandon brings him a possible one he wants to sire, Vasilije tells him 'No'. Brandon has no idea why Vasilije will not let him sire and he is determined to find at least one that he eventually can.

A short and satisfying read that’s a great start to the Sons of Navarus series; it definitely had me wanting more! I loved the vibe Vasilije (love that vamp) threw off and his lifestyle, so very carefree. A different type of romance that will haunt your dreams and a must read for any paranormal romance fan.

Brandon is a different type of vampire then we are used to. He actually comes off more human than vampire right from the start (which is not a bad thing at all), even though he has vampire pow
This series came highly recommended to me by people I trust, so I thought I would give it a try and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

A short little vampire tale that promises to lead into an even better series. I will be continuing on with these.

This novella is a great start to Gbrielle Bisset's Sons of Navarus erotic romance series. The story is well written and easy to follow. The storyline flows well. The content is eroctic romance and there are some hot and steamy scenes to wet you erotic taste buds. The story started out a bit slow for me, but quickly picked up and drew me in.
The Hero, Brandon, is not the all out Alpha male I'm used too or normally attracted to, but somehow I found myself very much liking him. I liked the Heroine,

OMG what a fab start to an amazing series, such a great collection of character's and storyline of vampire desire and love that can build from a simple kind act. i love how these two character's interacted and yes he was a bit naughty at first he soon made up for it with the passion and expression shown to her when you find your soul mate. I loved how their love lasted a lifetime and stops ready for the next chapter in the form of the next book. A fabulous tale of how classes and differences can ...more

I am hooked , I fell in love with the characters , Brandon Ridley and Arden Stephens even with Brandon's sire Vasilije (talk about a sexual devil) .

It is times like this that I wish I had the gift of making magic with words to weave the imagination of a make believe world seem so real you feel you are living every sight sound or adventure that the characters are experiencing , but alas this is not my gift .

I picked this up as a quick airplane read. The maid of a vampire prompt sounded interesting enough, but I didn't read or hear of any works by this author beforehand. I don't know about her other books, but this particular one was very rushed and the plot was thrown together rather poorly. "Vampire Dreams" (also known by other titles) is about a young girl of unfortunate circumstances, forced to live on the streets after the loss of her father and family fortune. She is soon rescued by Lord Brand ...more

VAMPIRE DREAMS-Revamped (Sons of Navarus prequel) by Gabrielle Bisset

NOTE: Series contains mature adult content

VAMPIRE DREAMS is the prequel novella to Gabrielle Bissett’s Sons of Navarus series. Brandon Riley was a 200 year old vampire who had yet to sire another. Lonely in a world full of vampires and humans, Brandon thought he finally found the one he could make his own. Brandon wanted to find love.

Arden Stephens was homeless. Following the death of her father, she was left penniless with no

Vampire Dreams Revamped is an updated, redone, version of Vampire Dreams. I didn't read that so have no comparison, so instead, I will just review this book!

For a novella, Gabrielle Bisset manages to impart a vast amount of knowledge and world building. You get a clear idea on how the "average" vampire behaves, how Brandon is an oddity, the close yet strange relationship he has with his sire. Brandon has never been one for the hedonistic lifestyle that the others seem to love, instead, he longs

This is the prequel to Blood Avenged and other than two of the characters there really isn't much that carries over to Blood Avenged. It really didn't set anything up for Blood Avenged. It was just there and fairly lame at that. It was just there and fairly lame at that. However, I wanted to give the author another chance and purchased and started Blood Avenged.

I suppose if the purpose of a prequel novella is to entice you to read the rest of the series, Vampire Dreams Revamped did just that.

I really liked the premise and the set up. I even liked the characters, it just all seemed kind of rushed to me. I’m hoping that the rest of the series revisits Arden and Brandon. They were an interesting couple and readers were left with a bit of teasing tension at the end.

The first official book in the series, Blood Avenged, belongs to Vasilije. He was slightly r

A prequel to the Sons of Navarus series. The characters just didn't quite connect to me. Vampire Brandon Ridley saves homeless Arden Stephens from attackers. He takes her home with him and gives her a place in his household. It is instant attraction to her and he wants her to be his companion from now to eternity. He is even willing to fight his sire -a huge vampire no no- to keep Arden with him.

The thing is... I REALLY want to like this series. I think it has a lot of potential. So... I will r

I really enjoyed this novella, I was able to connect to the 2 main characters Arden and Brandon. Though their relationship happened quite quickly probably due to the shorter length of the book, it was a sweet connection they had. I am not quite sure what to think of Vasilije, he seems kind of pompous to me, but what is a book without that one character you love to despise. I am hoping for more back ground on the actual Sons of Navarus with the up coming books so looking forward to reading more. ...more

A Sexy Vampire and his True Love

I was introduced to this series when I read the first boxed set. Never. Thought I would like this type of book, but now I'm hooked. Decided to go back and start at the beginning. Never thought a vampire could be so loving. As always another great one from G. Bisset. If you don't think you'll like this type of book, try this one. It's short and easy to read and it will hook you in.

The orginal was a charming sensual read. What Gabrielle has done in the new revamp, is to give as more insight to the two central characters, Brandon is a vampire and Arden a human making their love story more exciting and hotter. With the added scenes of vampires from her Sons of Navarus Series and new female vampires it gives us insight into the interaction between them. If you love erotic sensual vampires. This is a must read.
This author writes well enough but I can't help but compare most vampire series to J.R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I just don't get sucked into the world created in the Sons of Navarus. I have read up through book 4 and I think that I'm done. I got all of the stories in the book sets and thought that I would like them more than I did by all of the 5 star reviews. Maybe the stories are okay for someone else but I just felt that they were lacking something.

I enjoyed this book. It is the first book by Gabrielle Bisset that I have read. I enjoyed that Brandon was not willing to settle for love less than he deserved. I found Vasilije infurating at times but it was nice to see in the end he really did have Brandon's best intrest in mind.

Loved Brandons story. A man wanting a real relationship with hot dream sex thrown in for good measure. Had to say I wasnt liking Vasilije in this book but when it all comes together you see why he was doing what he did. Cant wait to get started on the next book in the series.

so I was trying to figure out how all this story goes into Sons of Navarus, I love the fact that Brandon was able to find someone to be with. the fact Arden can hold her own is good for Bradon. I am wondering though how this story will tie into the rest.
