For five long years, Viktor, The Heartless King of Prajna, has ignored the cicatrice on his palm. The birthmark, which awakens only when a vampire’s fated mate is soon to cross his path, is a complication he does not need. A chance encounter with his true mate unexpectedly rocks him to the core. Unwilling to deny the pull of her soul to his, he bonds with the female, believing he can handle the one major obstacle standing in his way of happiness.
When Eden’s betrothal to the Wolf King of the North falls through, she rejoices. For the first time in her life, she believes her fate is her own. She later finds out how very wrong she was, and runs headfirst into the arms of a vampire. Soon, nefarious forces work against the pair. While Viktor tries to protect his mate, Eden learns the consequences of falling for a king who has no heart.
***The Vampire King's Mate is the second book in the Fate of Imperium Series. Each book is the story of a different king and his fated mate. While the three books do not have to be read in order, it is highly recommended.
Great addition to the series
Holy moly Batman, that was even better than the first book. Eden and Viktor are the perfect compliments to each other’s personalities. The strife in this story weren’t as on going as they were in book one but all the more dangerous with all these betrayals cutting so deep. I absolutely love Viktor and his contrary personality, he’s the Heartless King but he’s so much more than the image he put off. The ending is sweet and brought tears to my eyes, I very much look forward to reading Evelyn’s story.

The story went on and on. It was not as good as the first book. The chemistry was just not there.
