"Lord of the Vampires" [Royal House of Shadows Series, Book 1] by Gena Showalter

My Book Summary : Nicolai has lost everything. His family. His crown, title and throne. His body. His abilities (magic). And his memories. He has no idea who he was before he was bought on the Slave Market. However, he is determined to gain his freedom, seek his vengeance (for what he doesn't know), and get his revenge for what has been done to him since he was bought. To do all of this he needs help. So, he send out the magic within him, that he was able to reach, to find a women who was not tainted by 'The Queen of Hearts' madness. In doing so, Jane came into his world.

Jane is a human. However, she has worked for a government agency for years so she knows about the dual world (just not how to cross it), vampires, and some of the other supernatural creatures. And since she has been having steamy dreams of Nicolai over the past couple of months, she's not worried (completely) about how she got there. But the 'why' of it she is curious about...

Once she realizes what Nicolai's plans are, she agrees to help him.

When fighting for their lives and being in constant close proximity, their attraction for each other in undeniable. But when the time comes for Nicolai to choose between his duty and vengeance or Jane will he be able to?? And will he decide to betray the one person who helped him regain everything he's lost?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! I wasn't able to resist the Dark Seducer anymore then the women in the book did! It was an addicting read, that I couldn't seem it get enough of. Plus, the ending was great too!! The plot was enticing, Jane was a colorful character from her previous life to the changes that she goes through, and Nicolai is many a girl’s fantasy!! If you’re into the science fiction/paranormal drama then I highly recommend this book to you!!

Book Teaser(s) :
God. How moronic she sounded. Yes this, and yes that. It was just, he'd fried her circuits. She was on top of him, poised over his cock. And she ached. Ached like a drug addict in need of a fix. Why else would she have practically thrown herself at a vampire? ~ within Chapter 4
"What were you chanting when you gave me your blood?"
"More of my vampire magic. I cast a healing spell to aid the powers of my blood."
She sniffled, her nose stuffy. "It was better than Vicodin."
"Vicodin?"
"A painkiller from my world."
"A killer of pain. Do you love him?" The words were growled.
A burst of unexpected humor gave her strength. "No. In fact, he was hard to shake. He, uh, stalked me, that kind of thing. I had to pretend he didn't exist." ~ within Chapter 11
