Publisher's Summary

Angelique is forced to wed a monster in exchange for a noble title. The Duke of Annecy is cold and cruelly sadistic, making the young duchess's life a living hell. On a fateful summer night in the lavish palace of Versailles, she meets an exotic courtier whose glittering dark eyes promise more than mere temporary relief from a loveless marriage. Angelique is offered the gift of immortality by the ancient vampire prince, and she accepts it with open arms. From Louis XVI's France and Victoria's England to modern London, The Duchess De Nuit is brimming with lush eroticism, action, and vivid historical details.

Wonderful Vampire Story

This book was from the heroine's point of view. it is a telling of the duchess de unit Angelina. There is a history of her childhood and being forced into an arranged marriage to a cruel and sadistic man which leads to her being saved by her vampire sire. She finally finds true love with the most unlikely and forbidden man. Their lives dramatically change at this point. I really enjoyed this book, the characters and writing of a new to me author.

long road to revenge and peace?

Both masters of Angie were selfish and with double standards. They took her best and gave her crumbs and were overly controlling. I liked that she managed to find her own kind if happy, but evil was still watching and lurking. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

WOW!!!

I absolutely loved this book! Going through Angelique's life from a rich merchants daughter during the victorian era in France, to a vampire in present day London, I totally fell in love with her character. Great narration as well, I'm really looking forward to part 2 and future titles from this author! 😀

Loved the narration of Mary Jane Conlon

We have a strong heroine also suspense, passion. What a vampire story. Not the normal , beautiful girl gets seduced by a vampire, with lots of sex.

A tale of Lust and Blood

It certainly was a tale of lust and blood and the story of Angelique, the beautiful heroine, how she became a vampire and her loves. I started this book and got engrossed until the end, wanting to see how the plot unfolded, and so glad there is a second book which I cannot wait to get my teeth into!! Narrated beautifully too! x
