England's "vampire craze" causes much vexation for the Lord Vampire of London, Ian Ashton. To save his reputation, Ian enlists aspiring authoress Angelica Winthrop without realizing she has hidden plans of her own.
Angelica Winthrop's life goal is to ruin her reputation, avoid marriage, and become a gothic authoress like her idol, Mary Shelley. To find inspiration for her new story, she breaks into the home of Ian Ashton, Duke of Burnrath, not knowing she will be coming up against the Lord Vampire of London. Romance sparks and reputations are at stake. But who knows the real difference between fact and fiction?
Buy at Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble

Crystal L's Thoughts:

My favorite thing about this book was the heroine, Angelica Winthrop. She was a devious little nut who is a creative soul that would love nothing more than to hide behind  a desk and write her gothic stories until the end of time. Very amusing girl. Her parents are trying to find her a 'suitable' match for marriage and you very much get the impression that she would rather jump off a cliff than be some broodmare for a titled husband. You have to love characters that have spunk and dedication.

Ian Ashton, our hero, was a little bland for my tastes. I can't quite put my finger on what's holding me back from this character, but for some odd reason I was just unable to connect. To be honest, I'm not sure why. He is the Lord Vampire of London, and also a very wealthy titled Duke. At the moment he's a very irritable vampire because of some ridiculous story that was written and published under Lord Byron's name about vampires. All of London is making comparisons between him, and the main character of this book. It's not exactly conducive with trying to live a low key lifestyle to hide what he is. He's also not in the market for a wife, but after Angelica stumbles on to the fact that he is a vampire, he decides his best course of action is to marry her so that she doesn't blab to the populace as to what he is. The story was good, it flowed, and had interesting secondary characters  Very enjoyable and I recommend it to those who like to read historical paranormal stories. 3.5 Wine Glass toast for Ms. Ann's Bite Me Your Grace.

RATING: 3.5 Wine Glasses
