Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time… the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs - and time is running out.

Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina - stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge - and the only woman who could help him.

In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory… but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

This is the first book in Royal House of Shadows. The Quartet features new books from some of the biggest names in paranormal fantasy romance: Gena Showalter, Jill Monroe, Jessica Andersen, and Nalini Singh. Listen to a new book in the series every month, from now through November.

Couldn't get through the first chapter

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I keep forgetting I can't stand the Romance genre's formulaic stupidity. My fault. I read a review, or blurb and mistakenly think it sounds interesting. And it might have been if it wasn't for the god-awful writing.

Has Lord of the Vampires turned you off from other books in this genre?


Did Genvieve Bevier do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I have no idea if it got any better. They were so flat and stereotypical from the very start; just sounded like very other one-dimensional Romance character. I do remember the hero was chained up and "oiled" all the time and the (non-vampire) heroine got sexually aroused by the blood stains on something. That sort of stood out.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lord of the Vampires?

I can't answer that because I couldn't get past the first scene.

Any additional comments?

This, if nothing else, should serve to remind me how much I dislike this genre. And I love vampires and good vampire books. I like erotica. I've *written* erotica and vampire stories. I just cannot stand Harlequin books.
