Blurb: Raden’s heard all the tales about the vampire known as the Regent. As infamous for his power as for his irresistible good looks, the Regent doesn’t care about Vampire Law—he makes his own law. No one dares defy him. He does what he wants, when he wants, and what he wants now is Raden. Captured and dragged to the older vampire’s underground lair, Raden is about to discover the truth behind the tales… and what the tales don’t tell.
Review: Raden’s been taken captive by the guards of the Regent. As he’s forced to walk underground for hours he imagines what will happen to him when he reaches the Regent’s lair… nothing could prepare him for what he discovers.
This is a hot erotic short that gets you hot under the collar. There really isn’t that much that I can tell you without giving the entire story away, so all I will say is that Raden has a submissive’s want that he has never had fulfilled until one night with a human and another vampire. That night comes back to haunt him and now he fears eternal death or eternal servitude await him.
I enjoyed this story as it gives you a bit of suspense in the build-up to the arrival at the Regent’s lair and a good idea as to why Raden is dreading the end of the journey. The Regent has surrounded himself with secrets and lies but longs for that one person who matches his intensity. I felt that even though this is a short story it has a lot of potential if the author ever decided to make it into a novella or novel. Now yes it’s a short and yes you don’t really get to know the characters but the sex scenes more than make up for it and so does the suspense and build-up.
Now who to recommend this to… hmmm… well there is some BDSM and some fantastically hot erotic sex with vampires and some angst, so really what are you waiting for?
