Blood and cake!

Don't let the blurb scare you. This has mild angst, some comfort and healing, and evil vamps running slave houses, but mostly this is all about love.

Never thought I would giggle at the antics of two vampires, a demon, and a demon's pet, who looks like a badass prehistoric crocodile but has a heart of gold (just stay on his good side).

Valentin and Sebastian couldn't get enough of each other, so there was lots of smexing and biting.

What do you get when you mix the Vampire Diaries (minus the whiny teens--on second thought these vampires in the book were on the melodramatic/ cutesy side for being so old), the Care Bears (there must be a Sugar Gumdrop Care Bear that can also drop fang) and Benny Hill -like antics from paranormal folk?

God, I loved this book so much. I wanted to read this for so long and I finally got around to it. Was it as good as I thought it would be? No. It was even better than I anticipated. S.J. Frost has made me fall in love with another set of her characters. And this time, it's vampires again.

I know from experience that she writes very sweet, sexy books that always leave me wanting more. Her MC's are always wonderful. Always. But she also does secondary characters really well and I think these are pr

Definitely NOT what I expected when I saw the words “blood slave” LOL.

All right, the book was not without flaws – which I will mention later – but sometimes, I need a book that is light and easy. I was a bit weary approaching this, due to the words “blood slave, giving his blood and body to vampires” on the blurb. I was not in the mood for a dark story. But some of my friends’ reviews made me decide to jump on it.

Well, it turned out that this story was sweet. Yep. Sweet. Not
4.5 stars

I really hope that there will be another book with these characters. I honestly don't think I could pick a favorite, they just were all great, including Beezle. I can see another story (or least I am hoping for one) with Sal and Calvin, I think that would be great, I can only imagine what that relationship will be like, especially with Sal calling him witchy-poo already. Then of course we have to have one for Basil. I have a soft spot for vampire stories and this one really worked for m

Vampires, blood slaves, exes, and a wise cracking demon, what fun! A bit of instalove, but I expected that going in from this author. Still, a very solid story. It has another thing I've come to expect from this author, a deep, caring friendship among the men, which is always nice

Dare I hope for sequels for Basil and Sal? Maybe Sal and the witch, Calvin?

That was very, very, very sweet. Like pure sugar. I had no idea! I thought for sure this book was going to scare me, you know, blood slave, but it didn't. This was like a fairy tale. Very enjoyable for my sweet tooth. I want more though. I really want a Demon and Witch story!!

I liked the first half much more than the second half. After the angst was over, it just kinda fell flat for me.

Is this gonna be a series? Because it REALLY needs to be a series. Or at least have a sequel for my new favorite demon Sal and his pet crocodile Beezle. They stole every scene they were in and I simply have to have more. Of everybody.

This was a really good book. For three years, Sebastian has lived as a blood slave. Prince Valentin is a 300 year old vampire who moved to Georgia with his cousin and a friend. He visits the blood house and is taken with Sebastian and the owner of the house doesn't like so he decides to teach him a lesson and Valentin doesn't like it. Valentin buys Sebastian and gives him his freedom. This was a very good book that I have been wanting to read for awhile. The sex scenes in this book were hot. I a ...more

Fun. That's how I would describe this read. Yes, it was heartbreaking seeing Sebastian treated so awful at the beginning but then we got Basil and Sal. We did have quite a bit of sticky sweet here but it didn't feel over the top to me. Vampires using blood slaves, vampires fighting vampires, demons fighting vampires and witches summoning demons, we had it all. Completely enjoyable and I really want to read Bas and Sal's stories!

Terribly romantic and gushy.

Sal saved this from being OTT Sweet with his general snark and badassery, plus Beezle's awesome!

Favorite quote:
Sal’s voice cut in. “Yeah, yeah, yeah. Love, love, love. Can we eat cake now?”

As usual Miss Frost, you did not disappoint. I LOVED this book and I'm really, really hoping for another one very soon!
3.5 Stars ~ "The vampires had taken everything from him. Not that he had much to begin with, but he wouldn’t let them have his emotions, his mind, his heart."

I really like sinking my teeth into a good vampire story. Yeah, I know, that was totally corny. Too bad! When I read the description for 'Vampire Prince' by SJ Frost, I thought the idea of blood slaves and houses to hold them in sounded interesting. Not to mention, I was looking forward to Sebastian finding his prince to save him.

I have been on a m/m romance kick as of late and pair that with one of my favorite genres, paranormal, and the Vampire Prince had me hooked from the absolute start. I could not put this one down and wanted more when I finished. This is one hot erotic read and I loved it. What I wouldn’t do to be a fly in their bedroom.

A Vampire Prince is a title given when a vampire reaches a certain again. Valentin knew immediately that he wanted
Whoa!!!! The blurb was so scary! Using words like "blood slave" "kidnapped" and I even add wrong tags like "abuse" to this book! That was BEFORE read it!

*This story is soooooooooooooo (infinite "o") sweet! It's romantic, erotic (there is A LOT of sex scenes) and NO DARKNESS at all! Neither angst! It's really a VERY romantic book.

*All secondary characters were AMAZING! But this is not a surprise. I read S.J.Frost before, I knew her stories were full of great characters. My favorite? SAL! Obviousl

LOVED IT! <3 I read it all in one sitting and wanted more! Didn't want it to end! Hopefully we get to see the other characters introduced in the novel, get their own book as well. I loved Bastien and Valentin. Their chemistry was HOT! I really love S.J.Frost's characters that she writes, and enjoy reading all her books ^^ she's one of my favorite authors, and you all should check out her other series as well if you haven't =D I want to know what happens to Sal and Calvin ^^ I seem to sense so ...more

I really have no complaints here. This was a great paranormal romance. The secondary characters were just as awesome as the main characters, the storyline kept me interested and the writing flowed from start to end.

I seem to be on a run of Vampire books at the moment and this one did not disappoint!

When Sebastian is kicked out of his home with barely the clothes on his back by his bigoted parents his life just carries on going downhill. Picked up off the streets and offered food and shelter leads him into signing away his life for the next 3 years. He has signed an unending contract as a blood slave and now his life revolves around staying healthy enough to feed vampires.

Ok, I loved this book. It is probably a 4.5, but I am biased about this author. She can write a great descriptive love story with action and great characters (always great characters). This book is about Sebastian who is a "blood slave" imprisoned in Savannah, Georgia who had been (I know you will be shocked) kicked out of his house for being gay(It makes me want to go start a Lost Boys home for all gay teens who are kicked out by their homophobic, bigoted ass hole families who should be brought ...more

REVIEW @Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

Vampire Prince is the story of Sebastian, a young man taken from the streets three years ago by Wesley with promises of a better life (or at least some food) and brought in his blood house as a blood slave, where people like him, runaways and people no one is going to miss, are used and abused by vampires. This mansion is become his prison, but he has no choice, he needs to stay safe and play the good boy, pretending to enjoy the entertainment he provide

While I rate this 4 stars, I can't really recommend it due to the price. It was $7.35 on Amazon and $8.99 on ARe (but I got it cheaper since I got a rebate). If I am going to shell out that much, I really expect perfection. I got a sweet story, but also typos that even I picked up on and I don't really notice things like that.

Yes, I liked the story. I liked Sebastian and Valentin. I liked Sal and Baz. I liked Beezle. I loved Sebastian's attitude. I loved Valentin's support.

I am hoping to see so

One of my all time favorite m/m authors has a new vampire romance out? Yes please!

I just LOVED this! I adored Sebastian and he was just perfect for Valentin. They were just smokin' hot together and I loved their chemistry right from the get go. I really liked the world building in this and I especially liked that it was different enough from her other vampire series that it was still fresh and new. Terrific start to what I hope will be a series.

So now I want Sal's story!
Well that was a lovely surprise! … a paranormal romance with no plot holes (except a very minor one in the final chapter) and lots of awesome story … this is a sweetly saccharin romance with minimal angst, vivid characters and light humour … the good guys win and evil is vanquished … there is even the possibility of a sequel, which would be appreciated, but isn’t necessary for satisfaction … If you love sweet and sexy, this is the book for you.

I liked it. Thought it was a good read and it paced well. I personally feel the two main characters fell in love too quickly, but it moved with the story's pace and not against it so it's not a complaint- just my opinion. I liked all the characters but I really enjoyed Sallos and his sense of humor. I would also love to know more about Calvin's story since he was introduced at the end. All in all a nice quick read! :)

2.5 stars

Not quite typical vampire story in need of considerable editing/review. Expensive ($8.75) considering the word count, spelling errors, typos, and missing words! No more Ellora's Cave for me.

Some good humor but not enough to make up for the rest of it so I can't really recommend it.

A little short from what I'm used too but a good story. I thought it was hot and sweet. I could have gone for more gritty - but it had enough to keep me satisfied. Liked Sebastian a lot - and his story just felt more real (odd in a paranormal but hey).
