This Story Is Red Hot

Publisher's Summary

A lost virgin vampire queen. Two vampire knights sworn to protect her. It's about to get very hot... and bloody... 

Ever since her mother was murdered by monsters five years ago, Shara Isador has been on the run. Alone, scared, and exhausted, she's finally cornered in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Out of hope with nowhere else to turn, she's ready to end it all when two men come to her rescue. They say she's a lost queen descended from Isis, and they're her Blood - vampire knights sworn to protect her. It all seems like a crazy nightmare, until the alpha offers his blood. Then she realizes she's never wanted anything more. Except maybe his body... and his friends', too. 

But they're not the only ones searching for a lost queen. Shara must learn how to wield her new powers quickly and conquer her fears if she intends to keep them all alive. Contains mature themes.

If I could give 6 stars, I would

I LOVE this series! It is an awesome Vampire Reverse Harem series with plenty of steam, plenty of suspense and plenty or intrigue. The characters and exploring their powers has been a wild ride. New characters are always being added and the story is constantly evolving. The writing is wonderful and have been me sucked in from the very start.

Narration is FAN-TA-STIC! Cassandra makes an amazing vampire queen! She has such a unique voice that is perfect and so enjoyable to listen to. Tristan is amazing as well. They make an amazing duo and have enhanced an already amazing story and added a whole new depth to enjoy.

Great great read for any PNR lover~

Pleasantly surprised by this series and audiobook!

I had heard a lot of good things about this series and thought I would try it out on audio since I have had more time getting through books that way with all my traveling for work. I was super happy I did! I loved this series, its very addicting and I couldn't wait to get back in my car and wasn't too upset to be stuck in extra holiday traffic so I could listen more to Shara and her Blood.

I loved the storyline, from seeing Shara grow and develop feelings for her men and also seeing her start the journey into being a vampire Queen. I liked that she was reluctant with stuff that RiK and Daire suggested, which is how anyone who was raised in the human world would react. Loved that her blood opens them up to their powers and that they can shift into different things. I loved the steam and looooove that Rik and Daire have a relationship (my guilty pleasure is definitely M/M anything haha). I started on Book 2 on audio already, I also bought Book 3 because I knew I would be in this for the long haul haha.

In terms of the narration, I thought both Tristan and Cassandra did a good job. They weren't my favorite narrators, I think sometimes it was tough to tell the difference between Rik and Daire, and sometimes Cassandra's tone didn't match the sentiment of the phrase, but overall I would definitely listen to them again. I already have listened to some of Book 2 and they definitely improve in that one (so many new voices to hear them do!).

Overall, great series on audio, will be definitely be listening to the rest while on vacation. I will say they are DEFINITELY not suitable to listen to at work hahaha. My face kept getting red with the steamy scenes (since they do increase in volume in Book 2) and it was too much to try and explain it to my coworkers without giving away what made my face red haha.

good

I think that this story is really interesting and different.. I know that this is basically an erotica, but I love the plot itself and the twists.. I actually liked the characters as well. Shara and Alric are good, but Dare is just so yummy. I love him. ;) oh, and I also totally love Tristan James. his voice is a yes xD

Ehhhh.

I am actually really sad about this one. I’m super big into RH and this was recommended as an RH staple. Maybe not as big as some others... but definitely seemed popular. Man. I struggled. I kind of feel like this might be because of the narrators chosen though. I really really struggled with both narrators, but more so with the male. I guess the male just sounded... too wispy... and older. It was personal preference. I’m sure others love him. I also struggled with the story. I’m big into audio - and I usually need at least the narrators or the story to hold its own. But... the story didn’t hold up. I didn’t find myself unable to stop listening. It was easy for me to turn off and by the end... I just wanted it to be over. :(. I may try the second book in kindle down the road. Or maybe I will pick up Book 2 in Audible at some point too. But for now... it will go on hold.

Love the story

Yes there are some tense moments for our human sensibilities though step back and just enjoy the world this author created. I like this version of the vampire and I would recommend this to all vampire fans.

Original story

I really enjoyed this storyline. It has an original take on vampires, demons, characters, and plot. This is shaping up to be an awesome adventure. Can’t wait to get to the next book in the series. Interesting story, would have preferred a view from Dare as well. I pictured a much more gruff sounding voice for our male MC. It’s always a challenge finding actual voices to compare with the ones in your head 😉

Love it!

I like these characters overall. They seem real. The conflict along the way seems real. Sometimes with Reverse Harem, I feel like there’s not enough natural conflict with all the members. Shara is interesting, humble, loving, and protective. I also feel like she’ll be able to have fun with the individuals in her harem.

Many times in reverse Harem I’ve also seen kidnapping which is something that really annoys me. Also when the guys in the story withhold information that the MC needs is frustrating. Glad that hasn’t happened. That would be especially frustrating since she’s a queen. I like that the guys don’t keep secrets from her and that they’re open. They know that she’s in charge and they follow her. Enjoying so far.

Just how I like my vampire erotica.

The story moves pretty quick once Sharla meets Alric (Ric) & Daire & finds out who she really is. There is an intriguing story line that takes a different view on the vampire hidden under all the sex. This will be interesting to see how it plays out. If you're not into lots of sex scenes or MM scenes then this book is not for you. But if you like 'bloody' vampire erotica or RH then highly recommend.
The only thing I wasn't fussed on was the male narrator. A few times I wasn't sure if he was telling the story from Ric or Daire's prospective.
