The Vampire Queen's Servant by Joey W. Hill

The Vampire Queen's Servant (Vampire Queen, #1)
Lady Lyssa, queen of the vampires, the last in the line of pure royalty has been given a gift by her former human servant. Jacob, a former vampire hunter, has made it his goal to be his lady's bonded human servant. The premise of The Vampire Queen's Servant is very simple. Is Jacob worthy enough for Lady Lyssa and will she accept him as hers, bonded to her until her own life ends (that's pretty long considering she's nearly 5 centuries old)? But this is a Joey W. Hill novel and they never are simple. This is a story solely between two people. There is a subplot but serves more as background, a conflict source. But as a whole this is a book about Lyssa and Jacob, its their interaction, submission, domination, their anger, their joy, their love. Its as intense as anything. Although very strong on the BDSM elements and graphic sexual scenes, its the exchange during those moments that makes you aware of the emotions between Lyssa and Jacob. They serve as the catalyst, a way of communicating their deepest darkest fears, their happiest moments, their deepest longing. Readers get into their minds, and are privileged enough to understand them, their decisions, their actions.

Paranormal erotica from an award-winning author who stands out in a genre known for its out-of-the-ordinary love play." (Romance Studio)


Lady Elyssa Yamato Amaterasu Wentworth is a centuries-old vampire who's been given a new servant-Jacob, a total alpha male unaccustomed to submitting to any woman's wishes. What really binds Jacob to her are not her sensual midnight hungers, but something far more provocative. It stirs her blood, renews her life, and awakens her soul like only true love can. The passion between Elyssa and Jacob yields something else unexpected-a shared history that reaches back through the centuries and is fated to challenge their destiny like nothing ever will again.

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.

EXCERPT:

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I…
