Some vampires have trouble figuring out how they want to spend eternity, but playboy Michael Odell isn’t one of them. He knows exactly what he wants: fine wines and beautiful women fuel his passion and he’s made it his mission to sample as many of either as he can. Fate has other ideas. One night, on his way home, Michael discovers a woman lying face-down in an alley, who is losing the fight to live. There’s only one way of saving her: The Ritual. Little does Michael know that this little act of mercy is going to change his life forever and before long he finds himself falling for the curvy stranger.
Anna doesn’t remember how she ended up discarded at death’s door in a dark alley, only that she woke up there. She doesn’t even know her last name. After coming face-to-face with her gorgeous rescuer, she passes out again and finds herself in a lavish mansion with a new lease on eternal life.
Who - or more importantly, what - is she now? And the people who tried to kill her - why were they after her? Anna is determined to figure it all out for herself. But before her questions are answered, she has to learn that even in this new immortal existence, it’s good to have friends - and perhaps a lover - by your side.

Michael's Soul Mate (Vampires of London #2) by Lorelei Moone
Michael felt uncomfortable all evening, but couldn't figure out why. It wasn't the party or people that had him feeling this way, he just had a growing uneasiness feeling in his chest that he could no longer ignore. So he left the party earlier than he usually did, alone. While walking on his way home, he found a woman in an alley who had been drained, by another vampire and close to death. Who would do something like this, to someone as beautiful as her? *Killing was against the rules. And discarding a drained body out in public where it could so easily be discovered? That was sacrilege.(direct book quote*). Acting on instinct, he bit his own wrist and put it to her mouth and told her to drink. When she finally did, he bit into her wrist, drinking a small taste of her blood. Which completed the cycle, the Ritual was done. He'd created another vampire—tried to, anyway, they'd know for sure the following night. Now things would forever change.
Anna awoke in a strange room feeling like she'd been hit by a bus, wearing an old fashioned type nightgown with no memory of how she got there, and initially no memory of her own name. Even though the room was dark, she could still clearly see her surroundings, including the details of the picture frame across the room. Her sense of smell was heightened as well. Then she heard the muffled voices of two men, they must be in the next room. Before going to investigate the voices Anna ended up biting her lip, when she looked into the mirror she noticed how much longer and razor sharp her canine teeth were. Had these men done something to her teeth before bringing her there? Her mind must be playing tricks on her, right now she needed to figure out where and why she was there!
When Michael noticed Anna was awake he tried and failed miserably to explain what had happened to her. *Something about her threw him off balance. He'd lost not just his game, but his entire sense of self around her. It was infuriating.(*direct book quote). Anna couldn't believe what he was telling her, she's a vampire?!? No way, they don't exist! Anna is finally starting to get it, but not only does Michael have to teach her how to be a vampire but now they have the people that did this to her in the beginning to worry about.
To find out what happens between Michael and Anna you'll have to read MICHAEL'S SOUL MATE. I've enjoyed reading this series, and cannot wait for book 3 LUCILLE'S VALENTINE in February 2017 to be available. All books, including this one, in the Vampires of London series are standalone and can be read out of order. I received an ARC via IndieSage in exchange for an honest blog tour review.
Hilarious and Sexy !
We met Michael back in book 1 of this series. He is one hilarious vampire. Well Fate has something up her sleeve for this playboy. Enter Anna whom he finds one night lying almost dead after being attacked but by what? All Michael knows is he feels a pull towards this female and rescues her or does he? Michael carries so much guilt that it almost costs him this woman two times.
I enjoyed this story. Anna is a firecracker for sure and well Michael is Michael and if not for his good friend Alexander he would likely have lost the one thing that was meant for his.
I was given this book by the author for an honest review. I must say that i thourghly enjoyed the book. It was a really great short read. Michael is a young vampire and seems to me like his soul is lost and he doesn't realize it. Anyhow he is out clubbing one night doing his normal love em and leave em kind of thing and he just feels off. On his way home he finds Anna in an alley close to death. And he is compelled by something deep inside that he has to save her. Anna has to come to the realization that her whole world is not what it was and figure out what her life was before waking up. Michael struggles with his feelings and it takes Anna being in danger to get his head straight. With the help of friends Michael may be able to help Anna and hisself in the process. I only wish that the story would have went on a little more, but all in all it was a good storyline and plot. I am intrigued and will look at more of Lorelei's books. :) Happy Reading.
