“It’s best if we just keep this casual, Dev.”

To feisty, relationship phobic Kate Martin’s utter surprise, she isn’t automatically dismissed as a crackpot when she finally plucks up courage to walk into a police station, revealing what she’s seen in her dreams. But instead of making a simple statement and returning to her nice, quiet life, she finds herself the center of at

Not the book I'd hoped for.

Having just read and loved 'Black Swan Affair' I went looking for other books by this author and couldn't believe my luck when I found she'd written a vampire series.
Now maybe after 'Swan' my expectations were too high but this wasn't quite the book I expected, all the ingredients were there but somehow, for me anyway it just didn't really work.
I'm not sure what else to say I didn't really like or relate to any of the characters especially Kate I found her shallow and

Boring as hell. I was in the mood for a vampire book and thought I'd get this off my TBR list and my ereader, but ugh. It's just so boring. Everything progresses at a snail's pace. Something about the writing is boring. It's dry. There are way too many descriptions. I do not care about what color the curtains are in every room. If I wanted to know about the curtains and color schemes of every room in every place the characters go, I'd watch HGTV. But I didn't, I wanted a vampire book, damn it.

I didn't realise I'd end up loving this book since it's been in my pile TBR forever so since I am in need of something paranormal I browsed and thought I should try this book and behold I loved it.

The characters are worth it. I love their quirky vampiric ways their mannerisms oh don't forget their hotness and their sexiness as well as their alpha-ish ways. Now I couldn't put this book away I had to sit back and savour each word although it had some minor editing problems but it didn't stray fro

3.5 stars!

I had some mixed feelings about this book, but overall I really enjoyed this it, this author, and more specifically the story between Kate & Dev.

This is a brand new author for me, but I didn't discover her through this series. I was looking at her book Forsaken Gray which looks to be a second chance story. I was reading some reviews and a reviewer mentioned loving her vampire series.... vampire series?! She has a vampire series...! Ohh.. yea, I'm going to choose that over second c

Recommends it for: Vampire Action/Romance readers
I was surprised at how good this book is!!! It's been a while since I found a new book that I enjoyed, (I've been re-reading stuff I already had) so I am not going to get critical about this, what was wrong with it, or what could be fixed about it.

I would say this was almost on an equal footing with the 'Vampires in America' series although the vamps, even the Lords of the three territories of the USA, didn't seem as powerful. Still, it had pretty good world-building and action/suspense. There

Surrendering is the first book in the ‘Regent Vampire Lords’ series and the type of book that I love – paranormal romance.
We meet Kate Martin, a sassy lady who in the beginning has been betrayed in the worst way and see that she is now the type of woman who has put relationships to one side to better herself. She is a psychology lecturer with dreams of taking her qualifications all of the way. What we quickly find out is that she ha

Do you love paranormal romance?
Do you like strong female characters with lots of personality?
Do you love alpha males who forget it’s the 21st century from time to time?
Do you like good dialogue and witty banter?
Do you rejoice in good supporting characters that make the story more dynamic and interesting?
Then this is the book for you!

Before I discuss how much I enjoyed reading this book, I have to give
First time read from author K.L. Kreig. The story was OK but overall was a little to "college frat boy" themed for me. It just struck me as them being a group of young vampires (in a club) running around, with the way they talked, their thinking, to the way they conducted themselves. They are suppose to be (at least the lords) old vampires, the main character Devon is suppose to be 550 years old i believe. I really for the life of me couldn't get the "young" feeling to leave as i read the story. ...more

A new take on a story as old as time.
I’ve read a lot of vampire stories and after a while they tend to blend into one. There’s really only so many times one can retell this story. However, Ms Kreig has done a wonderful job reinventing this tale with a lot of sass. I love that the main character, Kate, has psychic abilities and a bit of grit about her, she doesn’t just roll over and wait to be bitten. Devon, of course, is the gorgeous alpha vampire and he delivers. Throw in some steamy sex scenes

Loved the book!

Kate is full of sass and Dev is a strong sexy vampire that is brought to his knees by his mate. I love how their relationship starts and the snarky comments that Kate thinks and says. She certainly gives Dev a run for his money.

The secondary characters are just as good and I love the banter and how they add to the storyline.

This is a great light read with some drama thrown in and a great first book for this author. I look forward to more of the Lords and can't wait to read Damian
Yum. Dev was very much an alpha and I loved every minute of it.
Vampire + Romance = WOWZAH.

I'm hooked on the Regent Vampire Lords. I've been in a major book funk the past week, and this fabulous story brought me out of it. I was searching diligently for a hero that wreaks MINE! without any OW bull crap to deal with, and this book delivered in a big way. I like paranormal vampire/shifter reads with the theme of finding one's destined mate, and I've read a fair amount of them, but this one stands out as being much different.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal).

From the very first page of this book I was hooked. The beginning definitely catches your attention and, luckily for us readers, the rest of the book manages to keep it!

I fell in love with the heroine of this book very early on. Her strength and morals drew me to her and I felt as if she were someone that I would like in real life. That doesn’t always happen for me. I can honestly say that I really like

Actual Rating: 3.5

Surrendering, the first book in the Regent Vampire Saga is one with action, a disturbed deranged character and lots of sex.

The writing is good, characters okay and the plot fine. But while reading this I found that it had some similarities to that of Fated (Dark Protectors) by Rebecca Zanetti. Wait, it had a lot of similarities.

Similarities you'll have to find out yourself.

It was fairly good and interesting.

This is a new to me author that I discovered at a FB release party. I read the blurb, it sounded good, so I gave it a shot. I'm so happy I did. I have a hard time finding PNR books that I really like so when I discover one, I eat it up like candy. And it's a series, so I have more books to enjoy. Diving into Belonging next.

Has the potential for an excellent story line and I did enjoy it. However it seemed like when the story would get going gratuitous sex was thrown in. Don't get me wrong I love erotic romance stories but it seemed like sex was thrown in as filler. I rather would have had more of the story. With that being said I will read the second book because she did hook me with her story line.

I'm slightly torn on the rating for this. There were several things that caused me to spend a considerable amount of time rolling my eyes at this book. Let me count the ways -

There were a lot of times in a lot of different situations that I found myself thinking that I was uncomfortably aware of the difference in ages between the author and myself. Sometimes I wondered if it was just an age difference, if it was just my own peeves about tropes in the genre, or if it was lack of research. I mean

I read this book the other day and really enjoyed K.L. Kreig characthers and world building, and the story kept me hooked too. If you love your vamps sexy come meet Dev!

Dev is a Regent, basically his in charge of a region, in this vampire world vamps are born and cant be created by a bite, they can eat normal food too along with human blood, they also want to be loved even if they dont admit to it!

After about an hour across 2 bubble baths I gave up on this one. At the end of a thirty min bubble bath when I felt no urge to continue it I decided not to spend any more time on it. I appreciated that the author spent time distinguishing between typical vamp myths and this world but that was really the only think that worked for me. The whole book was just way overly sexual. Not in a sensual erotica way, more like a pubescent boy who just discovered masturbation. Then there were the disturbing ...more

By taking a chance and doing the right thing, Kate Martin’s life is turned upside down, not only is she not dismissed as a crackpot, she becomes the target of a rogue vampire, and she comes face to face with the man of her erotic dreams in this spectacular vampire romance. I was completely enthralled with the story from the very beginning, I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I decided to read this one as I was kind of reminded of another series that I love, but there was no reason to worry ...more

What a great book! I was given an ebook by the author, but trust me, this is honest.

I am teetering between 4 and 4.5 stars, mainly because of one small (important) part where I felt more grovelling was necessary. Like, a lot more. But let's move on...

Surrendering was super cool. There were points of view galore which added to the depth of the story line immensely. I was concerned that it would make the book hard to follow, but Ms. Kreig had such a firm grasp of the changes and the characters tha

I really liked this first book in this series, but initially it felt like some details were missing, however I liked how K.L. Kreig filled them in as the story went on, in particular the reason for animosity between the hero and villain.

It was really easy to like Kate and Devon. The two were something! Between the dreams and then them meeting in real life, I think I was more eager for them to come together than they were! And as someone who is not a huge fan of instant-attraction and

Honestly, I never read a single book from this author but I got to say I’m impressed. I wanted to read a paranormal book with a possessive, alpha male and this book serious had everything I wanted to read. So when I went to check out more books from this author on my Goodreads account, it turns out she has been in my currently file for a minute. It was a sign. A sign I need to read more from this author.
