Angelica Woodmore's life is about to be turned upside down. Her brother is missing, but she's not worried since has the unique ability to foresee the death of others, and it isn't his time. However, this time he's done something that could endanger her and her sisters. He's left instructions that they're to be watched over by a friend of his, the Earl of Corvindale. Unbeknown to her, she's been thrust into the world of the Draculia. Her brother's enemies want to capture her to not only get revenge on her brother, but to take advantage of her abilities. The earl doesn't want anything to do with the girls, but an attractive stranger does. Voss, Viscount Dewhurst, keeps appearing in her life, and Angelica finds herself drawn to him despite being ignorant of his motives. She must determine whether she trusts him with her life, or if he intends to take hers.

This was a nice melding of a regency romance and the paranormal. Minus the blood, it reads almost like an early Lisa Kleypas novel with less snark: a bad man meets an innocent girl, and while protecting her from harm, he slowly becomes a better person.While it wasn't the greatest page turner I've ever read, there was something about The Vampire Voss that kept me interested. I didn't want to fall asleep because it meant I would have to put the book down. When I finished the book, I immediately started to next in the series. While the Draculia in this world equate very closely to vampires, they're creation story and their weaknesses differ. There are different aspects to their "curse" that make them different. It's wonderful when an author can take a common thing, add a few twist to the world, and manage to make it feel like you're reading something new and unique.
