    In her small town, dubbed “Dullsville”, 16-year-old Raven—a vampire-crazed goth-girl—is an outcast. But not for long. The intriguing and rumored-to-be haunted mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood vacant and boarded-up for years. That is, until its mysteriously strange new occupants move in. Who are these creepy people—especially the handsome, dark, and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town prattle actually ring true? Are they vampires?

    Although not in the Twilight category of greatness, this book is well written and excellently read. Youths that have become a part of the "vampire craze" will be entertained.

    In Victorian England, vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well-known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.

    "Dreadful Narrator, Mediocre Plot"
    Overall

    Unfortunately it was difficult to tell if this book was disappointing because of the horrible reading or the plot development. I have never heard a narrator with such terrible phrasing. He takes huge breaths in the middle of sentences and places emphasis on words in a way that makes no sense.

    The story itself is decent, although there is a great deal of time given to character development, and then not enough time given to how the characters' personalities change due to their circumstances. For instance, the hero in the book is the worst kind of rake. The author spends a good amount of time describing his playboy past, and yet he literally changes overnight because of the heroine. Unfortunately this isn't described as a "love at first sight" scenerio, but more of a "lust at first sight" situation. Therefore, the immediate change of personality the hero undergoes is a bit confusing. Also, the heroine has a very strong since of morality, which is also described at length, but ends up as the mistress of a married man with little explanation.

    I definitely don't recommend this book for women who enjoy traditional romance novels, as it is written more like an erotic novel rather than a historical romance. Some people may find the choice of words rather vulgar compared to others typically used in the romance category. However, if you enjoy extremely detailed sex scenes regardless of the story line, it does get pretty steamy.
