How this story came to be…

In early 2012, I was talking with a writer friend about our plans for the year and somehow the topic of ‘millionaire’ romances came up. At the time, I remember telling my friend that I had no interest in writing one of those. My muse must have noted that down and cackled at the thought of making me eat my words at some point…

Fast forward to October; because of some difficulties in my personal life I was struggling to finish Beyond The Edge, the sequel to both the On The

What an excellent start to the series. I was riveted, to this book. I felt like I was in it, my eyes never left the page, I had to wiggle to the bathroom, cuz I didn't want to stop reading it, till it was finished. Now on to book two, with an empty bladder lol.

This is the first book I have read by Kallysten and given my love for paranormal/paranormal romance I was excited to have gotten an advanced copy for review and to be introduced to a new author.
Ward of the Vampire is a short erotic paranormal romance written in the first person and puts us inside the head of Angelina. Angelina works for Miss Deliah as her personal assistant/do-it-all and yes she has pretty much done it all. Miss Deliah has a brother, the reclusive philanthropist Morgan Ward who

Morgan Ward's birthday party bash was coming up soon and anyone and everyone longed to see that blue colored invitation in their mailbox! The most hottest and richest bachelor in the country if not the world told his sister that he didn't need help to plan the event and to not bring any presents!

Angelina did all of her bosses correspondence, prioritized it in order of importance so when she saw the blue invitation to her brother's party, she laid it on top. She was savvy to miss Deliah's vampire

There are enough accolades on this novella to fill pages and I won't list many more for the story, it was exceptional for what it was AND it was an awesome marketing tool since it allows people the ability for little money (99 cents or less) can get a sense of the story before they get the novel (which I will).

Perhaps if more authors did this type of thing we might get better books LOL. Since I read hundreds a year I hate it when I sludge through a book to get to the "good parts" and the good

Favorite Line “Except that, as far as I can recall, there weren’t vampires in the fairy tale, and the godmother didn’t offer Cinderella to the prince as a midnight snack.”

Angelina is the personal assistant to the sister of Morgan Ward. The man who throws parties people dream of going to and Angelina's boss has invited her to go with her. She even had a dress made custom for her! What amazing luck or is it?!?
When Angelina meets Morgan something strange happens.....

Great beginning! On to the next

The Low Down
There's only three characters in this erotic shortie. There's Angelina, who's POV is how the story is written. There is Delilah or Lilah as her brother calls her. Delilah is Angelina's boss. The third person in this story is Morgan Ward, Delilah's brother.

At the emphatic urging of his mother and sister, Morgan ward has decided to throw himself a birthday party. It was to be THE PARTY of parties and everyone who was anyone was going to be there.

I. Want. More. Really Ward of the Vampire was a wonderful novella that begins a tale and world that I cannot wait to get more of. We are left with a very cliffhanger ending that tells of more coming soon, and I cannot wait!

We are introduced to our main characters, Angelina and Morgan Ward-- Angelina’s being the POV the whole story is in. We get a very good glimpse of her life working for Miss Delilah, who turns out to be quite horrible in my opinion.

I am very intrigued by Morgan, we do not

I received an ARC copy to give an honest review.

Overall it was a wonderful read! Though it was too short for me. But I had questions such as did Morgan have the ability to do something with time? It seemed as though he did but you were never told that in words. What about this replacement that Morgan speaks about? Also the ending was not what I was expecting. What happened or should I say what will happen? It is a real cliff hanger. I hope this is a series as I can see it being one. The

An enjoyable, hot, quick read!

I don't normally read vampire/paranormal romance novels, but sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zone. I'm so glad I was able to read this book. I loved it!! It has a vampire sister (Delilah) & brother (Morgan Ward) & a human (Angelina). Angelina has been working as a Private Assistant for Delilah for almost 5 years now. Angelina has never met Morgan, only spoken to him on the phone when he calls to talk to his sister. On the eve of his 40th

Angelina works for Miss Delilah. Miss Delilah has received an invitation from her brother, Morgan Ward. Before the party, Miss Delilah has a surprise for Angelina. The party is where all the action takes place. Kallysten has me wishing that I was in Angelina’s shoes. And then when Lina goes to the party her life changes.

If you like sexy vampire stories, Kallysten will not disappoint you. She packs a great paranormal love story in just a small amount of pages. If you have a short
Tis the party of the century when some started receiving the blue envelopes back in August, celebrating Ward’s Birthday in December.

When Angelina’s boss, Delilah (Ward’s sister) asks her come to condo the night of the party, she unexpectedly invited to “tag” along as Delilah’s plus one. Delilah has some surprises up her preverbal shelve with some unique twist and turns.

I found the character, Angelina slightly annoying in the beginning of the book because she gave the mystery of the book away

Primitive, enthralling, alluring, and highly recommended.

As a huge admirer of paranormal romance I am always looking for new authors; hence my excitement when I received this book for review.

This is a quick, erotic paranormal romance written in the first person voice of the heroine, Angelina. The storyline isn’t completely unique but, the approach the author took compelled this reader toward the end. I’ve never been a fan of the cliffhanger but, in this case it gave the story an increased
I had the privilege to read Ward of the Vampire by Kallysten for an honest review. It is a short read only 44 pages, but I loved reading them. In this story Angelina works for Delilah as her personal assistant. There is a big party, and Delilah take Angelina with her. She meets Delilah’s brother Morgan who is the host and birthday boy. In only a few pages, you feel like you know that characters and that Angelina is talking to you about what has happened. I really hope there is more to come about ...more

It took me a little bit to get into it but then it turned interesting. Though it feels very unfinished, so I'm left feeling unsatisfied wanting to know what happens next. So hopefully a sequel with follow.

Added- So found out there is a sequel coming. I look forward to it because I would really like to know what happens. :)

This book had me cracking up. I love the heroine’s sense of humor. She reminds me of myself. I think I would’ve reacted pretty much the same way. Kallysten drew me in where I was there, confused right along with Lina. I had forgotten all about the first scenario, too wrapped up in the next. Can’t wait to read more.

I didn't think I was going to like this book at all. The first part was hard for me to read for some reason but I have this problem with allot of the books I read. Into the book I enjoyed it and it is a short read. I would like to read more in the future about the characters.

An interesting start to a series, with a first person narrative I didn't find too horrendously annoying. (I am not generally a first person POV fan.) Flawed however, as so many serials are, by just randomly ending without accomplishing anything notable.

Angelina gets invited as her bosss +1 to the party of the season, but little does she know that her boss has ulterior motives.
Vampires and smut, a quick read with an ending that leaves you wanting a sequel.

Morgan and Angelina

Angelina was thrown into the world of Morgan Ward, by his sister and mother meddling in his love life. She had no idea her boss or brother were vampires. She went to his birthday party as his sister's guest not knowing she could ever leave without dying because she was put under compulsion by her boss. A great story and I had to read all the books..

Kallysten is a writer of romance novels and short stories, most of them with paranormal elements.

Her first eBooks were published by Linden Bay Romance in 2005. The defunct Venus Press subsequently published a few of her short stories. Because so many of her stories are linked as series and part of the same universe, she decided it would make sense to have them all in the same place, which is why
