Vampires exist. And a whole bunch of them live in London.
Wallflower Cat only went to the stupid Halloween party because her roommate dragged her along. Big mistake.
Even worse: nearly falling into bed with Alexander, the mysterious host of the event, before fleeing his mansion faster than a bat out of hell.
Something about him and the other partygoers made her suspicious.
Still, Alexander left his mark on her. The kind that lasts an eternity.
This first book in Lorelei Moone's Vampire of London series flirts with death, but just a little. Sink your fangs into Alexander's Blood Bride and discover a secret underworld nobody knows about.
Alexander's Blood Bride (Vampires of London #1) by Lorelei Moone
Cat and Shelly were given an exceptional invitation to an exclusive Halloween Party, In Kensington Palace Gardens, London's most expensive street. Which meant they had to go shopping for a costume for Cat. No matter how hard Shelly has tried over the years, she hasn't been able to convert Cat the homebody into the life of the party like herself. But as a celebration to getting her new job Cat decides to go anyway. They are shocked at the house they pull up to the mansion.
Alexander Broderick's Halloween party's have evolved over the last century. They now include humans and are known for the *sex, blood, and rock 'n' roll(*directly book quote). Not only does Alexander see and smell, but feels when Catherine(Cat) walks into the house, but the air seems to change with her entrance. He notices other vampires notice her too. *He has to get to her before anyone else does, he has to have her, discover all there was to learn about her, intellectually, physically, even spiritually. *Her touch seemed to burn through his tuxedo right into his skin, almost painfully.(*direct book quotes) After showing her around the mansion they gravitate to the master suite. Everything is fine, until she removes his mask and looks into his eyes, then she flees the mansion. Shortly afterwards Alexander clears the house telling everyone in attendance the party is over, including the other vampires in attendance, which is totally unlike him. What is it with this girl that causes this reaction to him? He finds out later that night when one of the Council visits him, telling him they need to find her because she is an extremely rare human Blood Bride. Alexander knows he wants her, but has to find her to protect her from Julius their maker and the oldest and highest ranking vampire that currently walks the earth.
Cat continues to dream of Alexander, in her dreams it's revealed he's a vampire. It doesn't scare her anymore, but she knows she's blown her chance with him after running out the way she did on Halloween. But she feels someone watching her, and knows instinctively that Alexander will protect her. Alexander on the other hand has no idea how or where to find her, but knows he needs to get to her before anyone else in the council does. Will they meet up when he has no idea how or where to find her within the city? You'll have to read ALEXANDER'S BLOOD BRIDE to find out. I enjoyed reading this story and cannot wait for Lorelei Moone's next story in this series MICHAEL'S SOUL MATE (Vampires of London #2), that's due to be released November 2016. I received an ARC copy via IndieSage in exchange for a blog tour review. *It’s the ultimate forbidden romance; the love between a mortal and a vampire. What is it that makes flirting with death so utterly tempting? Read on and find out. This story is intended for adult audiences only. (*directly from book)
This was a good read, but should have been longer.
