Cat has never been a social butterfly. The only reason she even agreed to go to the stupid Halloween party was because her friend and room mate Shelly wanted to attend. When she gets spooked upon almost falling into bed with the host, she’s convinced it was all a big mistake. And what’s worse, now people are stalking her wherever she goes!

Alluring, intriguing, yet evasive at the same time. She walks in and every immortal eye seems to be drawn to her. Beautiful, sexy, curvy Cat has her heart set on a night at home and things change when Shelley gets an invitation. Cat never thinking that this one invitation would change her life forever.

This was a sexy, quick read that introduced the lore of the blood bride and the meaning to this supernatural culture. We are intrigued by a rather interesting set of characters and seeing where th

This is the first time I have ever read a book by Lorelei Moone and I'm so happy I had.

This book felt like a fairytale in some ways. I could see and hear the music that is going on while Cat and Alexander dance. I could feel the warmth of their stares and the magic in their touch. This was a very romantic book. I had an expectation about this book. I thought it was going to be very steamy, but for me I thought it was very very romantic and was done very beautifully.

Alexander's Blood Bride is an inspirational and incredible journey of finding honest and pure love in the least likely of places. Even when that love was lost to Alexander, he fought relentlessly to protect and find it. He didn't really what it was until it was threatened. Funny how love isn't taken seriously until someone tries to take it away.

The wonderful delightful characters made this story shine in the darkness, and captivated my heart from the very beginning.

I had gotten this book before it first came out, but it seems to have taken me forever to read this book. Although it's only like 100 pages, I couldn't stay interested in the story.

Cat & Alexander are drawn to each other I guess because of her being a blood bride, but I couldn't even tell you that much because it seemed she went from being scared of him to being in love with him in what seems overnight.

Cat's room mate drags her along to a halloween party. She meets Alexander and then realizes that the man seducing her is the same man in a picture that looks to be at least a hundred years old. She runs out of the party but unfortunately there is more to her than she knows. Cat is a blood bride. A blood bride is someone whose blood is so desirable that every vampire wants to drain her dry. The only problem is Alexander has to find

The book is categorized as "Steamy Vampire Romance"; I would go for "Sensual Gothic Vampire Romance".
There is one sex scene and it's beautifully done too but it's not steamy; it's sensual and it feels right in that context. Because Alexander is such a first-rate lover, I would not have minded another sex scene.
I gave a 5-star review because of the editing and also because I think it's a new take on vampire stories. The strong bond before they even know each other, for one, then the blood bride m

A different take on the vampire theme with interesting characters and storyline. Not too long, so no boredom or prolonged erotica. I liked it.
The audio is interpreted by Gethyn Edwards and is quite well done.

Not everyday that you get a chance to party with the elite and that is exactly what happened here. A chance meeting with a vampire turns into a fight for her life. Storyline was fulfilling and I can't wait to read the rest.

This is the first book in a very interesting paranormal series titled Vampires of London and I loved reading this!

This story has a little bit of everything for everyone and kept me hooked up until the very last page! I loved Alexander and found him to be the perfect mixture of danger and alpha male and Cat is one very lucky girl indeed! Reading this made me want to hit up as many Halloween parties as I can in order to find my very own Alexander. If only it were that easy.

I highly recommend rea

"Alexander Broderick stood at the top of the curving stairwell in the center of his Kensington residence, surveying his domain. The party had started at eight sharp, with more guests arriving every few minutes. His Halloween parties were an age old tradition, even if their grandeur and scale had evolved significantly since the early days. A hundred years ago, he’d been content inviting a few friends and acquaintances, all of them vampire like he was. Now, every year, the event had grown bigger a ...more

What did you love best about Alexander's Blood Bride?
The author wrote a story that grabbed my attention from when the narrator spoke his first word. Having an accent added to my enjoyment. I find that when reading I don't hear a different language - especially coming from Massachusetts. So in this case this gave me a better sense of the characters - especially Alexander.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Alexander's Blood Bride?
For me, it was the Halloween ball. I could almost picture

This was a different take on the vampire romance story. I liked that the heroine had a background in art and worked at Sotheby's and I liked the main characters. My biggest complaint is that the whole book felt rushed. I wish the concept of blood brides was explained in more detail. I would have liked to know more about the background of Alexander and I would have liked them to have a little bit more time together before they bonded. I'm very used to reading "fated mates" and "love at first sigh ...more

Cat has a natural beauty with pale green eyes and porcelain skin with curves but she is not the social butterfly her roommate and friend Shelly is. When Shelly convinces Cat to go to an exclusive Halloween party to celebrate Cat's new job, Cat has no clue how much her life is going to change.

When it comes to Blood Brides, they aren't written about much in Vampire books so I was eager to read this one.This was the story of Alexander and Cat who are both unaware that she is a Blood Bride, all they know is they are drawn to each other. Alexander doesn't understand why he has these feelings for her when he hasn't had these feelings for over 300 years and Cat has never really been one to socialize. They meet at Alexander's Hallow

If you could sum up Alexander's Blood Bride in three words, what would they be?
There are too many words to describe this is just there. This was a really awesome story and it had so much emotion and so much depth to it that wasn't completely noticed unless you paid attention.

What other book might you compare Alexander's Blood Bride to and why?
I haven't read any books exactly like this. The closest I have ever come to this would be the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton, but

Alexander throws the same party every year. A halloween party for the elite of London. Every year he enjoys watching the people and making his rounds through out the crowds. What he doesn't expect this year is to find a woman who connects so deeply with his soul, with a single glance, that he can not take his eyes off her. Apparently neither can any of the other vampires in the room. Cat is just a mere mortal or so she thinks. What she soon learns can be the difference between life and death and ...more

I read this book as an ARC for 2 girls who love books blog and enjoyed the book, which seemed to fly by!

Cat meeting Alexander is a complete whirlwind  and she is plunged into a world of Vampires, it all happens so quickly, deeply and with so much possesion. Alexander sounds delightful, brooding and powerful, completely overwhelming Cat who is lack in confidence and completely unassuming.

The book works really well and I found myself speeding through it, the pace was really quick but didn't lose

Alexander is a very old vampire who has a yearly Halloween Bash at his luxurious estate. Shelly and her roommate Cat go. At first Cat thought, she would be bored but she becomes intrigued with the paintings and furnishings. Alexander is immediately taken with Cat but when he tries to make a move, it freaks her out and she leaves.

Lorelei did it again with another awesome story. You never know where you will find love. This is an quick, easy, and fast read. I couldn't stop reading until the end. Cat knew that she was made just for Alexander knew that too. Alexander is so sweet and caring to Cat. Keep up the awesome work Lorelei. I can't wait to read your next book. If you love reading about Vampires finding love. Then is is the book for you. I would definitely recommend this book.

Ok,  I am totally hooked on this entertaining little book!  While it may have been predictable, it was still a great deal of fun.  I think I enjoyed the audio better than I would have the ebook, simply because of Mr. Edwards' marvelous voice acting.  And there was amazing production value- even changing the tones and adding effects for phone calls and such, which really added to the experience.  I think there isn't enough value placed on books solely for entertainment, as if we must only ever re ...more
