Just brilliant

The only thing I can say is buy this box set. The stories were great leading on from each other. Characters were believable and even though they were predators of the highest order I cheered them on to the end. I hope the author brings out more of this series . I read all 3 stories in one sitting staying up to well into the night to finish even though part of me didn't want the stories to end. That is a sign of a brilliant book(s) for me.
Nerdy Dirty & Flirty

Caressed by Moonlight

Victoria and Dorian don't have your normal love affair. They are kind of thrown at each other, but by different fates.
Victoria and her little sister just lost everything they have and have to go and live with their nasty aunt. This aunt then tells Victoria she has one month to find a husband or she will never see her sister again. Really who does that to family?
Dorian is in London to get the witches away from his clan. As far as he knows it is working. He's been there for

A nice read

The stories kept me interested and the books are good, but you can tell the author hates autocorrect spelling also. I swear you know she spelled things correctly and the computer corrected it

Being currently on a box set/anthology bender, I thought I’d give Amanda J Greene’s ‘Rulers of Darkness’ a little attention. It promised to offer some much loved dark and lusty vampire fare - Vampire kings, dark knights, wicked witches, and fair maidens destined to fall into their fateful clutches.

I have to confess, for my taste, these three books smacked a little too ‘Mills & Boon’ for a ripping vampire yarn. - Am I showing my age? Should that be ‘Harlequin’ I should have said there? Anyway

When I first started this series I was hoping not to be disappointed because this first book took place over 200 years ago which usually doesn't hold my interest but within the first couple chapters of Caressed by Moonlight I was so caught up in the vampire world I didn't care what century it was.
Prince Dorian has run from his home to London to force the people trying to destroy him to leave his home. Poor Victoria has lost her family home after her parents passed and she and her sister

>Book review – Rulers of Darkness Box set –

>This box set contains the first 3 books in the Rulers of Darkness series. Each story revolves around a particular vampire and ends in an HEA. The stories continue in following books, so the books must be read in order. Book one is “Caressed by Moonlight” and is the story of Victoria, a human, and Dorian, a vampire. Dorian is a rake who is attracted to Victoria, marrying her to save her and her sister from her horrible aunt. There is a lot of

In the first book of the series, we are introduced to Dorian's world in which he has left his clan in order save them, by drawing the Red Order Hunters to him. Victoria is penniless due to her father's debts, and is trying to find a way to keep her younger sister with her, which means getting married within a month. Circumstances - and Victoria's best friend Lana - throw Dorian and Victoria together.

A well written introduction to this world, although there are some editing

These three books are really, really good!

Each has it's own feel to it, where some romance series make you feel like you are reading the same book over and over, only with different names attached to the characters; Amanda Greene has put together three very different stories - and yet they still work as a series.

A curse on the rulers of darkness is at the core of all three stories. Any vampire who becomes King of a clan will lose his immortal lifespan and die consumed by pain and madness unless

These novels are jam packed with shocks and twists. They will have you immersed in the world Amanda J Greene has created. She really does a great job of setting the scene and giving the reader enough backstory about her world.

The characters are very well developed, complex, and multi dimensional which allows the reader to become invested.

Amanda J. Greene's writing style is very direct. There is no skirting around things.

I enjoyed the Romance aspect. These characters, in each novel had a

I loved this box set! It was so well done and sexy as sin. Definitely not recommended for less mature readers, but if you're not the type who giggles when someone brings up sex, this is a must read! The romance is steamy and the men are drop dead sexy while the women are gorgeous. I love the author's twist on vampires, their society and soul mates. It's unique and well constructed. The characters are also amazingly complex and relatable, despite the fact that half of them are thousands of years ...more

I love to read box sets of books, because I know I’m getting into a set of books and stories that will tie in to each other. This series contains three books that are all able to be read as standalones because each book is meets others from previous, or subsequent, stories. I’m too impatient to wait for book series to be continued so whenever I see a chance to snatch up a boxed set I jump on it.

The characters were written so well; the men are strong alpha males and each of the women are

This was such a brilliant box set! It furthered my love of alpha vampires and strong leading ladies.

I liked the storyline, in each of the books. I think it carried through well, and had enough supporting detail to feel natural and realistic. I liked the level of detail that was put into the events taking place. Even the smallest details were looked after, making the world and all the happenings very easy to become a part of.

The characters were excellent. I loved the vampires, especially with

Rulers of Darkness is three Vampire romances with a fair amount of sex thrown for good measure.
Caressed by Moonlight #1

The book is set in London 1814, and is the of the first vampire king Dorian to meet his long awaited mate Victoria.
I really enjoyed this book it quickly introduces the reader London society, and Vampire law and dramas.
Dorian marries Victoria to help her out as she destitute, and her awful aunt has her younger sister. This is an enjoyable romance that leads nicely into the second
I have really enjoyed reading this boxed set. I loved how all the females in this series are very strong and independent. Even though they have these big Alpha vampires protecting them they are still willing to put themselves in the line of danger to protect the ones they love. My favorite couple would have to be Dimitri and Kerstyn. Their story just made me smile the whole time I was reading it. Dimitiri was so loving and patient with Kerstyn, willing to give her time to come to know him and ...more

Amanda J. Greene has done a great job with creating characters the reader will feel strongly about. Maybe not always a good kind of strong, but evoking emotion in the reader is good regardless.

This was a great compilation. We get a feel for the characters, the world, and the situations they are in, each novel builds upon the next.

The Romance and Heat she brings to the story are both very well done and it makes for some HOTT situations between these characters.

in the beginning there was the 4 original vampires , 3 of these went on to sire fledglings , young vampires that belong to the king vampire that sired them . to keep the vampires under control the witches cursed the kings to descend into madness unless they find their mate .
the vampires have codes & laws that protect humans even going so far as to have knights that uphold these laws & punish any vampire that breaks them , falcon is one of these black knights & is also one of my fav

WOW!!! Too bad there isn't an option for more stars!

I like books with vampires, witches, shifters and such but this collection was beyond all of that. This collection of books is phenomenal! With every page you are drawn right into the story. You can feel, hear and see all. Emotions are plentiful from love to hate, despair to hope, death to life, lovers to enemies. It is all here.

This author has done a fantastic job of bringing the story to life. Three different

I REALLY have to be in the mood to read any vampire books because I've been so disappointed in the past. NOT THIS TIME! This is the best vamp series I've read since Twilight! Not only did I cruise through the first 3 I immediately dove into book 4 and can hardly wait for book 5! It threw me off at first because the first book starting the series is a historical read.......I wasn't expecting that! Don't let it throw's fantastic and needed. You do get brought into current

So I was bored one night, browsing through my kindle store app and came across this. I can't believe it was only 99p! These books were completely brilliant. It was such a great book I hated when I had to put it down. Its a great story set away from all the modern technology of today. I love the Princes cockyness at the beginning and the way Victoria handles herself. This is the perfect supernatural, scary love story! Bravo to the author! Give it a read you won't be sorry!

Editing mistakes spoil this series.

The storyline is good. The editing is horrendous. I read the first book and have no interest in reading the second or third book. The editing is so poorly done, I don't want to struggle with trying to ignore the spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors.

A little to drawer out

I gave this a five star because I did like the story but I thought it was too drawer out at times and Hadrain sometimes came out as a Winer.He was a vampire warrior thousands of years old.His mate came out stronger then him sometimes.All in all I did enjoy the spoken hot sex scenes and he was sexy so I cannot wait for the next story.Mimi

Every one of these warriors face darkness in a different way. But the way to light again is in a legend. They don't believe that they are worthy of a mate. It is something they will have to accept. And let go of the past to finally be able love and live again.
