This was a very interesting new brand of vampire for me. Set in present day, yet it had an almost historical feel with the various levels within the vampire social hierarchy. There are also many rules that must be followed in their world. I truly feel that rules are supposed to be broken. Javier and Lilah feel the same way I do about rules.

The very human Lilah belongs to an aristocratic lord vampire. She hates him and the way he has taken her from one hell and made her into a servant in another.

This had such great writing and the plot would be much better if there was any buildup or suspense. If the story was longer to build the heat, things would seem 1. More realistic 2. More likable 3. Not as rushed

Oh, hello, hot stuff. Whew. Can Felicity Heaton write the steamy or can Felicity Heaton write the steamy? *fans self* I will freely admit that this book hit all my forbidden love kinks. The strong, silent male who has an instant attraction to his female but has to deny it (for whatever reason) makes my heart go pitter-patter. In this case, Javier is bound by the laws of his kind to leave Lilah alone. To touch her would cause her terrible pain but things happen and the touching starts and ... it ...more

I love it when an author decides to create an impossible challenge for her couple. Especially when right at the beginning the reader thinks “how will they get out of this?”. Felicity Heaton not only writes strong sex scenes, but crafts a world full of impressive characters.

Javier and Lilah have been ferociously attracted to each other for two years. But, because she is the property of a powerful vampire, their laws and customs to do not allow for their joining. Because of this, Javier has kept his distance from Lilah and has just pined for her from a distance. As, fate would have it, the two succumb to the draw they feel towards one another. After that, their connection deepens.

Vampiric erotic romance. Haven't read a book in a long time where the male lead was so in touch with his sensitive side. Especially a male vamp. Not a bad read if you're in the mood for a highly sexual, yet loving (kinda alpha) male & an attractive good girl who knows what she wants.
Review by Ollie for bittenbyparanormalromance

This is the first book in Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance Series and I have to say she is off to a very good start. This series seems to have a darker, sensual vibe to it and definitely more erotic. The story is about a forbidden love between a vampire and a human who is owned by another vampire set amidst the backdrop of an erotic theatre that caters to vampires and their needs.

Covet is my first Felicity Heaton book and I LOVED it. I’ve had Her Dark Angel on my Nook waiting for me to read it. After reading this hot novella, I will be moving it up my TBR!

Covet is mix of romance, hot monkey sex and blood. And it all takes place in a vampire owned and ran theatre. But this isn’t any theatre; they don’t do plays or operas here. No they put on erotica shows for the elite vampires. There’s sex and feeding on stage to have the audience coming back for more and more.

The world or what information you get about it seems interesting enough. Vampires own erotic theatre where they perform with humans too. Lilah is a mortal who works there. Supposedly she belongs to an aristocrat vampire, but that doesn't prevent Javier to want her. That's the story. The rest are steamy scenes with these two. I'd recommend this for anyone in the mood for an ok erotic story.

The good is that the world seems interesting (I am guessing we get a bit more later) and certain events in

For two years, Javier and Lilah have had an intense attraction to each other but they are unable to act upon it for a very important reason. Javier is a vampire, and an Lilah is a human, but owned by a master vampire. Rule number one in their world – “an owned human must never be touched by a vampire other than their master.”

If touched out of desire or to feed from them from someone other than their master, will cause the bonded human intense pain, as well as alerting the master. The vampire tha

A forbidden lust that has lasted two years, coveting from afar to finally explode into love. Javier is an elite vampire, one of the men to run a Vampire Erotic Theater. Since meeting Lilah, he had been lusting for her. She is a mortal slave; one already owned by another vampire. All this time, Javier and Lilah had managed to avoid each other and avoid being alone in the same room until they meet in a private box during a play *fanning self*. U

There was one rule his kind honoured above all others: an owned human must never be touched by a vampire other than their master.

"Covet" what an optimal title for this book.

How would you like to be secretly coveted by a Vampire? One who has watched you and hungered for you for two long years knowing that if he touches you he will surely die? This is the story that Felicity Heaton weaves in a theater designed for the erotic pleasures of Vampires.

This is a perfect story of a denied longing finally being fulfilled with desire and love to last forever. The emotional buildup between the characters Javier and Lilah is thrilling with excitement as they go against the vampire’s society rules and let their feelings and wants in their hearts rule their actions.

As book one in as series, Covet effectively establishes a collection of characters that makes me eager to follow and get to know better. It establishes the theatre setting effectively and sets the marker for the level of heat that we can expect from this series. And Covet is one hot sexy book!

The characters are passionate and likeable. Javier,one of the vampire elite and Lilah, a human bonded to a powerful vampire, explore forbidden passion and love. They navigate their feelings for one another

It seems ages since I have read one of Felicity's books and this was a great re-introduction back into her worlds. I love Felicity's vampire worlds, her characters tormented, dark and loyal. With her scenes written with love and devotion Felicity does not miss one minor detail. She makes it easy to close your eyes and picture her settings and characters and a master of descriptive emotions.

This vampires story has a erotic twist to it. It was an interesting short story but (I can’t believe I’m going to say this) there were too many sex scenes and not enough storyline development.

When I was asked if I’d like to read and review Covet, I said yes without knowing anything about the book. I was that sure the story would be fantastic because I love Felicity Heaton’s voice. I’m happy to say, Ms. Heaton did not disappoint.

Javier is one of several vampires that own and run the Vampirerotique—a theatre that offers wickedly erotic and sinfully pleasurable shows to other vampires.

Julie Read Our Lips! Book Review Blog
For two years, Javier – vampire and co-owner of Vampirerotique (an erotic theater) is tormented upon looking at Lilah, a human who works at his theater. Lilah is forbidden to him as she belongs to another vampire and to touch Lilah would surely mean both their deaths.

But temptation cannot be held at bay forever and Lilah and Javier succumb to their passion. This unleashes a chain of events that will change things between them forever. Can Lilah and Javier’s love for each other survive?
