Can you imagine spending your life void of any emotions no happiness, no sadness, no lust, no love, no hate... Just, nothing... Empty. Well, that's the life Gemma has led.
As far back as Gemma can remember she has spent her life isolated and emotionally disconnected from the world. She has no friends and her grandparents may as well be non existent because they show her no love or affection at all.
'Why have I never felt anything? Am I broken? Crazy? Or, are there just some people who go through life like me—peacefully disconnected?'
Why do people laugh? What makes them cry? Smile? What allows them to love? These are the questions I’ve asked myself for nearly the last twenty-one years. What makes people feel? I don’t understand what produces emotion and I’m supposed to be writing a paper on human emotion for my Sociology class.'
When the book opens Gemma is reflecting on why she has lacked the ability to feel her whole life. She has no idea that after 21 years of having expressed no emotion..that today is the day she will feel for the first time EVER. Out of nowhere she is hit with a multitude of emotions all at once.
'I’m stunned. Shocked. Terrified. Because, for the first time in my life, I’m crying.'
Recently she has been having nightmares. Nightmares filled with monsters who want her dead. And after experiencing a plethora of emotions all at once she is suddenly trying to tame them. How does one respond to lust for the first time? How does one respond to pain? These are all things she needs to figure out but it's all put on hold when Alex strolls in to her life. She knows that she has seen him before... In her nightmares. The first time they touch it feels like an electrical current humming through her body.
It soon becomes clear that Gemma's life is in danger and that Alex knows why. Is he her savior or her captor? It's hard to tell since one moment he acts hot and the next he acts cold towards her.
“I don’t understand. One minute you’re being nice to me and the next you’re being a jerk.” “That’s because I’m conflicted,” he states, touching the scratches on his neck. “About what?” “About doing what I want and what’s right.” ~Gemma and Alex
Truths are slowly made clear and who to trust quickly becomes distorted.
My Thoughts I liked it! Sorensen created a nice magical world where fey, witches, vamps, shifters and seers all abound. The concept was very "the fate of the world depends on a girl" which is not the most unique... But she did a good job with her characters and plot twist,that alone kept the ball rolling full steam ahead. I must admit I was not completely sucked in until around 72% where the story line picked up. Alex brought the sexiness as well as Laylen... As a matter of fact I would have liked more Laylen!
Oh and btw, it ends with a total cliffhanger.

That emotion died in me long ago, as I suspect you already know.” -Vlad in Once Burned
As a child Leila suffered a tragic accident that not only left her scarred down one side of half of her body but with a powerful ability. Leila can produce electrical currents off her body from skin to skin contact. Now she is part of an act with a traveling circus showing off her rare talent. Unfortunately the electrical currents are not her only gift, she has another and it has many facets to it. When Leila finds herself kidnapped by four vampires wanting her to use her gift her survival instincts kick in and she does what she is told. And goes from being scared of the four vamps to being terrified as hell of one vamp. Now Leila is at the mercy of one very dangerous vampire one she has seen kill in a cruel and gruesome way. Vlad Tepesh aka Dracula. When Vlad senses but cannot see the invader in his mist he asks a simple question "Who are you?" Armed with information that someone is out to kill him Vlad agrees to spare Leila's life. On one condition... That she is not leading him into a trap.
Fave lines from the book “If I didn’t want you so much,” he said in a deadly purr, “I’d let you keep fucking me with your gaze, but you make me impatient.” -Vlad
“It must be important or he wouldn’t dare disturb me now,” he muttered. Then he drew away to look at me. “If it’s not, I’ll kill him and return to you directly.” -Vlad
“Two Leilas seemed to be battling it out inside me. The first was outraged that he still considered it a fait accompli that I'd give in to him, and the second...that slutty bitch was wondering what Vlad looked like naked.” -Leila
Thoughts I love love loved it!!! Vlad is Awesome i had high expectations for this book and imho Frost delivered. She gave me all the elements that i need in my PNR reads fast pace and action packed storylines. She appealed to my emotions with Leila's familial circumstances. And added just the right amount of steam and romance to keep me satisfied. And of course i enjoyed the Bones and Cat cameo! Leila- I loved her she was strong and never backed down when standing up for the ones she cared about. Vlad- Kicked Ass just like i knew he would! We also got the chance to learn more about his history through Leila which was kinda cool. I also thought it was interesting how Vlad is selective with his lovers and that he has not had many over the centuries of his life.
My Ratings Characters- Likeable Writing Style- Good Plot/Storyline- Very Enjoyable, Entertaining and Witty Steam Factor- High. Very Steamy Overall- I Loved It!! Read it!(less)

Paranormal romance author Evelynn Farrow finds herself ensnared in a world she thought only existed in her novels. And now she belongs to The Vampire King
I very much enjoyed this PNR it was not the most original in terms of concept. However it kept my attention with the suspense and slow sensual building lovestory. Roman D'Angelo has been King for over three thousand years when he finally sees her. The woman who he must protect, the woman that haunts his dreams. His Queen, Evelynn Farrow. Of course he is not aware of this at the time. What he does know is that he is immediately attracted to her. It slowly becomes clear that they are brought together for a reason. Two days... He spends two days not just following her but getting to know her by using his mind reading ability. Just as he is about to make his move shots ring out.
Thoughts Hmmmm. This PNR reminded me of a few of my faves. J.R.Ward and Gena Showalter for starters. First, you have hunters... That sound familiar??? Second, The hunters have a mysterious unidentified leader. Again, sound familiar?? Third, the hunters are people against the vamps and wolves who seek to eradicate their lives. Fourth, you have the woman but not just any woman. This woman holds powers aka talents that cause her to stand out from all other women. With all that said The Vampire King has witches/warlocks, wolves, magic and twelve kings all paranormal in some way. Each will be paired with a queen by the end of the series. Of course the ending had a nice cliffhanger. Leaving me in need for more. Overall I really did enjoy the book and I will continue with the series. I will also be reading The Big Bad Wolf series which I probably should have read before this. It became apparent that the two series coincide with one another and that the characters cross over. Needless to say the wolves have piqued my interest.

When Lucien refers to Leah as Life, I melted into a puddle it was one of the most romantic, most sexiest, most incredible usage of that word I have read.
"I can hear it, And see it. He's marked your every movement. Even the slightest movement you've made Leah, he's marked it. His heart is beating in tandem with yours exactly. Everyone knows, every vampire here that is, they can all hear it, see it, sense it. Nobody can do that like Lucien it's beautiful." ~Stephanie in Until the Sun Falls from the Sky
Leah Buchanan comes from a long line of concubines who have been in service to The Dominion of vampires for five centuries. Concubines service vampires by providing them with blood; this service has been known to last from 1 to 3 years per concubine. In return vampires provide a good lifestyle for the concubine for the rest of his/her life. And though it should be looked at as an honor Leah greatly dislikes the idea of one day becoming one. So when Leah is summoned to attend her first Selection she must go whether she likes it or not. The Buchanan's are the "cream of the crop" as far as concubines go and Leah has already been marked by a very powerful vampire named Lucien.
Lucien is about to change everything by going for what he desires even if it is against vampire laws to do so. Lucien has been waiting for his chance to claim Leah and the time has now arrived. Because of this Lucien does not act in haste, instead he is calculated and takes his time at Selection tracking and marking her in front of everyone before he declares his intentions. He quickly realizes that Leah will not be easily tamed. Of course this is not only the challenge he expects, this is the challenge he craves.
When a connection stronger than any immortal can have with a mortal forms between these two it not only opposes The Dominion. It sets off a chain reaction in the universe. Unbeknownst to them Leah and Lucien's Union have been prophesied. And along with them two other couples will fight to save mankind.
The Revolution begins NOW!
Thoughts AMAZING! This book was AMAZING! I recommend it to allll PNR Lovers!!! Not only was KA fresh with her original take on vampires she brings you a whole new world in her on creative way. For example "The Feast" and "Concubines" both terms we are familiar with; yet in her world she spins a nice twist to basic traditions. Then you add in prophesies, talk of war, ancient writings plus romance i swear it can't get any better. Great job KA! Leah-I loved Leah she was so funny, thoughtful and gracious. She also proved to be courageous and strong showing she was truly meant to be Lucien's mate. I look forward to reading more about her in future books from this series. Lucien-Sexy as HELL. Powerful and did not play when it came to getting what he wants. I loved him, even when his character would make me mad i still loved him. I do however wish he was more up front with Leah about his feelings and intentions from the start. Avery-Proved to be a good ally for Lucien but was otherwise a silent yet strong presence. Stephanie- I love Stephanie she was a great friend to both Lucien and Leah. Etienne-Pure Evil. Also Lucien's father how crazy is that?!
Fave Lines from the book! “If you give me you, Lucien, then I promise. I’ll give you me.”-Leah
“I love you, Leah. I’ve loved you for twenty years and I’ll love you for eternity. My beautiful Leah, listen closely. What I say is pure truth. And on this truth, you have my vow.” -Lucien
“You’ve missed everything. So I’ll say it so you can understand it. I’ve been waiting to have you since I knew you existed. But I’ve been waiting for someone like you for five fucking centuries ”-Lucien
“Don’t try me,” Lucian warned in my head. “Kiss my concubine ass,” I returned in his.”
My Ratings Characters- Lovable and Witty Writing Style- Clever, Fresh, Potent and very Solid Plot/Storyline- Fast Paced, Original and Sexy Steam Factor- High/Very Steamy "Call emergency and ask for the fire department to put out the FIRE! HOT!" Overall- I loved it!!! A MUST READ!!!!

Book summary below from Goodreads
A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne’s Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races–and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a. assassin, Riley is merely an office worker–until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn’t be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all-consuming.…
Luckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she’s going to find her brother….Easier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful–and delectably naked–vamp who raises her temperature like never before.
In matters carnal, Riley has met her match. But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior–by tapping into the genome of nonhumans like Rhoan. Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind–and just how much it needs her.

Fave line from the book-" I will drag your sleeping ass out into the sun, if you so much as drop a fang at my sister"- Emma in Conversion
Conversion totally took me by surprise it starts off slow, not even on a slow simmer just slow. And then i get closer to the end and it jump starts to life like a reviving heart. You don't even expect it, then BAM it kicks into high gear leaving the reader wondering how the hell are they both gonna get out of this alive?!
Conversion starts with Emma running into Teran literally. The poor girl spills her scolding hot latte all over Teran. Before he really gets a word out she is offering to pay his dry cleaning bill and hands him her card so he can contact her for the sure to be hefty sum. While at work as the assistant to the executive assistant Emma receives a call from Teran but it has nothing to do with the dry cleaning bill he wants to take her out on a date. And so begins their love affair. A few weeks in Emma is ready to take things to the next level and Teran gives into her wants. But first he also has something important he needs to tell her. And that something would be that he is a vampire. Emma takes the news well and let's him know "No Biting" is allowed, he agree's. Of course that rule eventually is negated. The closer the couple become the stronger the bond forms Emma decides she is in it for the long haul. Even after meeting his family; Emma sticks by her man. The information his family provides increases her worry for his well being though. And for good reason too.
Thoughts At first i did not think i was gonna like the book it had a slow start and honestly it lacked the blood and sex i crave from my vampire reads. But then things took a turn and the steam factor shot up then the blood and biting... Suddenly the heat was on! I conclude that this book was worth the slow start and i cannot wait to read book2! I even got a little misty eyed at the end.
