3 1/2 stars. In this book we Verity Llewellyn, vampire slayer, well sort of. She has not really been trained and her brother has been injured and had to leave the court. So Verity is alone to take care of the Tudors. Enter Rhys Williams, the long suffering vampire slayer, who has finally gotten some recogntition on his own. Rhys is immediately taken with the fair Verity, but she knows that Rhys has always loved her cousin, Rosalind, and does not want to be second fiddle. Besides, Queen Jane is about to give birth and has been quite ill. Verity and Rhys suspect a vampire is draining the Queen and set about solving the mystery.

I enjoy this series and Rhys is one of my favorite characters. The story was good and pretty hot in places. I have to say that I do not really like Verity that much. She has so many issues! Sometimes she almost seems to deliberately misinterpret poor Rhys' actions and statements. She became more likeable toward the end of the book and I have hopes she will not be quite so tiresome in the next book.
