OH MY!! Umm YEAH it's good... REALLY GOOD! There was a few times where I started to get quite annoyed with Lauren. It was hard for me to not SCREAM... SUBMIT ALREADY.. I would have in about 2.5 seconds. But good Lord she was stubborn! Her ultimate submission of course was all the more sweet when it did come. But she could have saved them a lot of trouble and pain. If you haven't read this one you should. Great read...

I disliked our heroine, Lauren Wright - too many contradictions in her character. She's a research scientist, a freakin' PhD, and but she fails to grasp the most basic elements of logic. She writes pornography on her laptop (at work, even!), but a little bit of nudity has her blushing like a Catholic virgin. Nope - couldn't do her.

The heroine was TSTL. She ignored the danger in order to fight with the hero. She fantasized about D/s but didn't want to submit. The hero was likable to a certain extent. He was caring and protective. Unfortunately, he was a doormat to the heroine. There was no relationship development. Majority of the sex scenes were dreams and excerpts from the heroine's erotic journal.

Okay I have just started reading this and Kris has taken Lauren into her fantasy world, and I am sorry just because she is aroused doesn't mean she accepts. She is saying NO! She does not want this, like she said they only just met, I have a feeling I will not like this book as much as other books of Evangeline Anderson.

** I was right I couldn't do it, didn't like it, I ended up skipping to the end - which I never do, I read books cover to cover - but I just couldn't do that with this book.

By the blurb i was led to believe this would be non-stop Dom/sub fantasies made reality when the hero and the heroine gets forced to stay together in the House of Pain. Instead, heres two people who lack chemistry, she doesnt trust him and hes condescending. A lot more action/thriller than smut. ...more

Lots of hot sex, with both secret fantasies of the heroine that she has written on her laptop. and the actual sex of the hero and heroine. And, after he steals her laptop, he is able to read all her fantasies and help her act our some of them, though she at first resists, especially when they must go to a BDSM club to receive a cure for an infection she receives from an infected vampire.

The heroine has perfected a formula for synthetic blood that would also help the vampires "come out" and show

Recommends it for: vampire fans, with a bit of erotica
Very good book, although a bit on the erotic side. Premise is curvy woman has secret fantasies that she writes in her laptop. She also is a scientist working on a synthesized alternative to bagged blood for transfusions. What she does not know that there is a secret world of vampires, some of which want to come out of the coffin, so to speak. One powerful vampire decides to follow her and steal her research, which he assumes was on her laptop. Guess what he found instead? Well, he meets with her ...more

Very good. Not the book I first thought I was going to be reading. Each time you think you get a handle on the plot it makes dramatic right turn. Not that I'm in any way upset about this, it was fantastic. You never knew exactly what was going to happen next (even if you think you do). I also loved how Mrs. Anderson managed to make this tale extremely spicy with very little actual sex. That is definitely a talent. The only complaint I had was I wanted to see more loving between the characters, b ...more

I really enjoyed the vampiric world that Anderson created in this book. It was slow-moving to start with, but picked up about halfway through. Lauren was annoying at times, especially with her stuttered dialogue. There were few editing errors that took away from the story slightly (especially in the height of the end of the fight scene at the end), but overall, it was an entertaining read.

This is the first book that I've read by this author. I must say that I did like it very much. I love Nickoli. And Lauren was a great character to. There story was full of passion, and Lauren learning to trust Nickoli. Good read, I hope there will be more.

Maybe i'm cheesy or I just like Evangeline Anderson's books. When ever she writes something I imagine i am in a japanese anime lol. This book was cute, I liked her take on vampires. Kris did too much sighing for me but overall not that bad as a read. I give it four besos!!

Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for ...more
