Hill author Tymber Dalton walks the talk. Her stories aren't paranormal but more like real life. Tymber is staff at a BDSM dungeon in Tampa and writes what she knows. My very favorite book of hers, and her most popular is The Reluctant Dom. It's the fourth book in her Suncoast Society series. It's a big tearjerker. Tymber is incredibly prolific and currently has 97 books in that series. This is solely how she makes a living. (less)

Recommends it for: Fans of Joey

It's been SIX YEARS since I last read this????

Where the hell does the time go?

I actually thought this one got a little long-winded but the fact that I've read it this many times means I'm not coming off those stars.



5/14-I still love it. This triad has become a comfort read for me.

Can I give more than 5 stars????

I thought that Joey W. Hill did an honourable job with this book, turning worn-out themes into a rather smart and good story.

Gideon is a vampire hunter, overwhelmed by guilt and grief since the woman he loved was killed by a vampire. Pure tortured Alpha male with a knight-in-shining-armour complex and I can see you rolling your eyes!
Daegan is a vampire, tall, dark and broody (duh), powerful and dominant.
Anwyn is a Dominatrix, owner of a BDSM club and already involved in a relationship with the a

Alpha Vampire Daegan Rei & Anwyn....hummmm....

Then Joey Hill added... Vampire Hunter Gideon Green

I love him, he is feisty, but Daegan steals my heart quickly he is PERFECT.......and my favorite...and yes, hummm.... Anwyn....I could do without her, but. Daegan and Gideon more than made up for her presence.

4 Vampy Stars!


My Book boyfriend is Daegen, sure wish they’d kill the girl.

Why I read: Received for review from the publisher.

Favorite Quote:Anwyn.” Daegan caught her shoulders.
The vampire’s command resonated through the bathroom, and possibly the entire lower level. Gideon knew generals – not to mention high school teachers – who would give a left nut to freeze motion and rivet attention as Daegan did with two syllables. Who the hell was this guy?

Favorite Naughty Quote: Daegan set aside the lubricant, his hand still working himself. That glistening tumescen

Good Lawd!

This was a lady boner read for sure!

I loved The Knights of the Boardroom series I read many years ago. I saw VM was on sale for free so I jumped right in the deep end at book 5.

Daegan and Gideon = lady boner

Sorry, this book suffers from the Laurell K. Hamilton school of long, verbose sex scenes. It suffers from the cliche "oooo, two alpha males and oh hell NO I AM NOT GAY but ooo, I like it when another male touches me" thang. Maybe that's not a thang, but I find it fairly hilarious.

There was one line, damn, I wished I had placed a marker at the page, which had me rolling on the floor. Wait, I found it. "She'd also seen two situations where two men loved, but never thought of themselves as gay. Sh

4.30am - the time I finished this book this morning after intending only to read a couple of chapters.
All three characters in this story have incredibly complex histories. Opposing yet complimentary, attitudes/views so set yet evolving. The three of them thrown together and all trying to discover who they are as a group and also as individuals.
This is a 3-way romance, brutal in content given the inciting event that throws the characters together but I like the hints that their trinity is going t

I'm sorry to say this because it seems many people really like this book, but I couldn't stand it. I thought all the characters were whiny and annoying. Worst of all, after Anwyn is turned into a vampire, it's as if the same scene plays over and over again! It drags after that big event.
To be fair, the book started interestingly enough. I really thought I was going to like it. Sadly, I did not.

I love the Vampire Queen series and I'm OCD when it comes to reading a series in order but you could start with Vampire Mistress and you would be ok. There are a few mentions of previous characters in the other books but nothing that will have you lost.

IMO this book has the most emotional tug of war going on between the characters in the series so far. You've got three strong-willed characters who are looking for something that's missing in their lives.

I presume you know what the book is about. I'm letting you know what I liked or disliked about it.

I started the Vampire Queen Series with this book intentionally. I had read the descriptions and excerpts for the VQ series several times but just kept setting it aside, not sure it would interest me. Anyway, I read all the very good reviews of VQ and figured I'd start here and check it out.

I've read the 7 books of Natures Desire and if there's an 8th one I'll read that too. So I want you to know I

This book in the series is so different. Gideon is a puzzle to me, he is one of my favorite characters in this series. He is so tortured and looking for something and ends up getting it literally! I loved the triangle Dagean him and Anywyn formed and they are an unstoppable. Anywyn already connected to a vampire ends up getting turned and Gideon gets marked as her servant so the three of them have major issues. I loved watching how all this played out but I felt it was very stop and go for a lon ...more

I love these books as you can see from my other reviews. WOW I didn't expect bad ass Gideon to turn into a pile of gooey sweetness. It was great seeing him struggle of what he was (vampire hunter ) to Anwyns servant. Anwyn however, I found her difficult to like at times. I know she had been through a lot but just whiny. She was turned into a vamp against her will by a vampire that was schizophrenic. Causing her to have some kind of fits. I wished I would have seen the more Mistress side of her. ...more

I admit that until I read this I was a Joey Hill virgin. Well, glad to say that is no longer the case. This was an outstanding foray into BDSM, menage territory. While I am not big into BDSM, I can tolerate it more from a dominant female standpoint. Submissive females make my skin crawl, so the heroine, Anwyn was right up my alley. Submissive males are a good thing in the bedroom, as long as they make up for it by being super alpha outside of it, so Gideon Green, one of the heroes, fills the bi ...more
This is my second reading of this book. I first read it back in 2011. I read it to refresh my memory in preparation for reading Vampire Master. I enjoyed this book as much as the first time around. This is the first book in the Club Atlantis spinoff series. I want to reread the second one, Vampire Trinity as well because there is some yummy M/M action going on in that one.
The general plot of this story is the making of a vampire. If you've read the earlier novels in this series you know that Gid

Since I'm reading these past the publishing dates, I know this is a setup book to the next one. I was a little bored at times, which hadn't yet happened to me in the series. I knew Gideon would be a complex character, and if I didn't know that there was a second book following, I would have felt "jipped." I also felt that we needed a bit more family (i.e. Jacob and Lyssa) interaction, even if it was only in the form of phone calls. Lady Lyssa, of course, had a fabulous LOL quip, which each book ...more

I wish I could give this book more than five stars cause it damn sure deserves it. Joey just keeps getting better and better in her story telling.
I loved all three characters for what they brought to the table. My heart ached for all of them. They are so intense, dark in their own ways, and the feelings they possess are overwhelming.
Great read. Run to the store and buy this book. It's worth every penny.
I am so looking forward to Trinity.
Ooooooooohh I can't wait another 4 months to see how this is gonna end! The story leaves off right in the middle, to be continued in the next installment. Vampire Trinity comes out this September and I'm excited to see how the 3 part alliance handles the current situation and their relationships with each other and as a whole. On the edge of my seat here (still fanning myself from some particularly steamy scenes). ...more

Fantastic! I was at first hesitant to read these as although I read a lot of books with strong female leads I usually don’t go for total femdom. The lead in these two books is Anwyn Naime a Domme who owns a fetish club. So I was not prepared to be blown away by this intelligent, sensitive, well written story. But as you may have guess I sit here all agog regretting that it took me so long to read these. Now I will have to get and devour the rest of the books in this series.

It is no secret I love Joey Hill’s Vampire series. However, Vampire Mistress doesn’t hit the same notes as the books leading up to it in the series. What I love most about her books is the transportation to an exotic setting full of beauty. Vampire Mistress takes place in the basement of a BDSM club. While the atmosphere aids in normalizing the sexual chemistry between the characters, I feel I got cheated out of my favorite part of Hill’s masterful writing. The character’s unique personalities a ...more

Joey is a new author to me and I chose this book because I saw it promoted on another author's FB page AND it was free! Well if the aim of the exercise was to rope me in, they done me good. I really enjoyed this and the well developed characters this story revolves around, my favourite being Daegan, I could get into some serious trouble with him. To be fair Anwyn and Gideon are also great characters and they all have their own back story which is gradually released throughout this and the second ...more

Well, well, well. I took a break from the Vampire Queen world after binge reading the first four books. In between, I read the Twilight Saga for the first time in nearly ten years (ugh!). Now Joey W. Hill writes about REAL vampires, ones that are badass, realistic, and just plain sexy.

I met Gideon back in book number two, "The Mark of the Vampire Queen", and he was the typical vampire hunter with a troubled past. Nothing new. Boring. Blegh. When I learned he had his own book (two, in fact), I wa

Now is Gideon Green's story.

I disliked this character while reading Lyssa and Jacob's books. I haven't been reading the Vampire Queen series in order, so it was a surprise seeing Gideon from a unhappy and tormented vampire hunter turning into a servant in 'Bound by the Vampire Queen', even more... two vampires' servant!! That picked my curiosity at the time, but as Bound by the Vampire Queen was a bit disappointing, I took a break from the series. It has been now, months later, after reading the
