Book Synopsis: Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member of the Dracule—a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls—the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral…until Angelica.
Angelica Woodmore possesses the Sight, an ability invaluable to both sides of a looming war among the Dracule. Her very scent envelops Voss in a scarlet fog of hunger—for her body and her blood. But he is utterly unprepared for the new desire that overcomes him—to protect her.
Now Voss must battle his very nature to be with Angelica…but this vampire never backs down from a fight.
Book Review: I loved this book. This book was so worth the wait. I loved the book.
The world building that Colleen Gleason has built is wonderful, because I also love historicals. Yet this has elements of Regency England and the world of the Draculia who live in it. She sets the rules of her world and sticks to it.
What I really liked about this book was that both Voss and Anglica are both individuals who have gifts or curses depending on how you look at it. I like that despite that Voss and Angelica are from different worlds, they find that they need the other and nothing is ever the same.
Also like how she made Angelica a strong match for Voss because you need that in a paranormal romance. This book works because Angelica has the freedom in some ways to do what most Regency females couldn’t do and that is follow her heart. I also like that this book took several surprises for me. I just loved the chemistry between the two main characters and really fell in love with the characters.
I also like how Colleen Gleason gave us hints and starts to set up for the next two novels, The Vampire Dimitri, and The Vampire Narcise. This world is intriguing, dark and wonderfully rich.
I have always loved books that keep me guessing and it was at times a thrilling ride. Buy It.

This book was terrific and I didn’t want the story to end. This book is the second in the Resonance Mates Series. Miss D’Arc creates a world where human beings have been wiped out by a castrophe caused by the Alvians and there are a few human beings left and they hide. I like that the O’Hara’s are back from the first book. (Hara’s Legacy). I love how the family dynamic remains intact and that the O’Hara’s are a loving family and I think that is the reason that I liked Callie. When Davin first sees Callie he instantly is attracted to her. I like how Miss D’Arc develops Callie and Davin’s relationship carefully and slowly that you can understand why and how they fall in love. Also the introduction of the Rick. St. John character is bought in a very unique way and that he has a gift like all the characters do in this universe. Rick has the gift of healing and I found that unique. The sex scenes were written fantastically well and felt that all the characters cared about one another. I think with these kinds of novels it’s hard not to over write the sex scenes, but it never felt gratitous or just there because the writer needed a sex scene. I also loved how once the action started, she never let up or let the readers down. This book was one of the best books I read. Grade 5 Hearts(less)

This book was okay. I expected this book to have more liveliness in it. I guess it suffers from second book syndrome. I felt that the book dragged at certain times and then we were left waiting for more. I think that the world is getting much darker and that the stakes were raised a little bit, yet I never felt that there was any real danger to our characters.
This book had some problems, but still I would have liked the book to be a little bit more fast paced and would have like a deeper exploration of Cy's powers as well as Gavin's in this book. I did like that Akila, Ian's wife showed Gavyn Donatti how Ian and her met. That was nice. This book didn't possess the same power as the first one.
I thought that Gavyn Donatti's humor was missing. I loved that about the character. I also didn't like how Ian acted. He acted almost muderous. I don't like when he gets that blood thirsty...
I liked how Gavyn got Calvin-the enemy in Ian's (the dinjin) eyest to train him. I thought it was a good progression of his powers and would have loved to have seen even more development of this.
It was an okay read over all. I just felt like at the end the author left us with a weird HEA, kind of.

This book was awesome. I loved the characters and the world building. Really like the twists and turns that this book took. I really didn't expect a lot of the turns that this book took.
What I liked about this book was that this book had a mystery in it. I'm a sucker for a good mystery. The mystery starts off like any other mystery would. Detective Parker Hayes comes to the UDA which is short for the Underworld Detective Agency, where our heroine Sophie Lawson works. Her boss is a werewolf, and her roommate is a vampire, so this is a world where there are a lot of supernatural beings exist which i find kind of cool and that the UDA is a lot like a police force.
Detective Parker Hayes comes to them because he wants to solve the crimes and Sophie offers to help. So begins their steamy chemistry. Sophie is instantly attracted to him, so she knows it's not magic affecting her. Sophie knows this because Magic doesn't affect her. The term for Sophie is magically immune to beings that would use all sorts of magic on her. I like how the author slowly builds their relationship.
Then there was the fact that we had a troll, yes there is a troll in the book named Steve. Then we had Nina's vampire Nephew, Louis who is now calling himself Vlad. Yes Vlad. I found Vlad and Steve to be extremely funny and full of surprises. Steve is trying to protect Sophie and I kind of at times found him to be a little stalkerish, but Steve says he is trying to protect her.
This book rocked in a lot of ways. There are more and more murders and then disappearances happening. People around Sophie and Nina begin to disappear like Sophie's boss, Sampson, (who happens to be a werewolf), The Manager of Dirt, the club that Nina goes to is found murdered.
What shocked me...***Spoiler Alert*** was the killer turned out to be the Police Cheif. I found that a surprising shock. The other thing that surprised me was that Parker Hayes, wasn't really Parker Hayes, but an Angel who was named Alex Grace. Angels, we have Angels, well a fallen one anyway.
I love how Steve at the very end, does kind of come to the rescue. I just enjoyed this book. The fight scenes were awesome. Love the mystery plot and how all the sub-plot's of the book come together.
Plus Louis aka Vlad, have some awesome one-liners in this book.
There was nothing wrong with this book. If in fact anything, this book made me want to read the rest of the series right now. Too bad, I have to wait till November to read the next one, Under Ground.
