Publisher Description

Beneath the glitter of dazzling nineteenth century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil…


Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long ago taken control of the world. 


In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake. But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous moonlit streets, Victoria’s heart is torn between London’s most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her dark, dangerous duty. 


And when she comes face-to-face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make a choice between duty and love.

Praise for The Gardella Vampire Hunters Series 


"The Rest Falls Away, Gleason's publishing debut...turns vampire stories--and romances--on their ear with a decidedly dark, decidedly unsentimental Regency heroine who stakes the undead with the best of them." -- Detroit Free Press 


"The undead rise to great heights through Gleason's phenomenal storytelling. She creates a chilling world with the perfect atmosphere of fear and sexual tension." -- Romantic Times 


"Gleason keeps upping the ante with each novel, weaving the characters around her readers with each engaging conversation and narrative, every stage set of all the appropriate gothic gloom and melting beauty. -- Book Fetish 


"...Above all, the writing is what recommends this book most. Gleason's writing is sharp and taut, which makes for excellent action sequences, and a plot that travels quickly from the start. The writing strength alone gives me ample reassurance that this potentially plot-heavy series is in the right hands. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment." – Smart Bitches Love Trashy Books

Great book!

I loved the story line and the fact that there are some good, steamy scenes but not one every three pages. I like a good tease! The author had a different take on vampire hunters too which was refreshing. I also loved that Victoria, the main character, wasn't whiney and emotional. There were a few grammatical errors and spell check issues, and being the grammar nazi that I am, it did bug me but overall the book was a great read. I haven't read the next four books in the series, but I am planning on it for sure. I would love to see max and Victoria get together eventually, he was my favorite male character for sure. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a few sex scenes with a story not the other way around.
