Synopsis from Goodreads:
Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.
After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.
I was quite intrigued with the cast of characters that Greene introduces us to in this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the main characters. They were both fun and serious. Watching them get to know one another made the entire tale feel quite intimate. The supporting cast was quite loveable as well. They rounded out the story nicely, while also providing information pertinent to the forward flow of the story.
This was a wildly scandalous and vividly imaginative novel that kept me coming back for more. I can’t wait to see what comes next from this promising author.
