Review: Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness #1) by Amanda J. Greene

Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.

Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Prince Vlakhos.

After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.

This was a good debut novel. I really loved Dorian, the hero of the story. His background and how he became a Vampire was believable and really let me see what kind man he was. Victoria on the other hand was over shadowed by our hero, not that she was a bad heroine, just that Dorian’s star was a little brighter. When it came to the romance, Dorian once again took the lead. You could feel his longing and desire for Victoria, but on her end I found it somewhat lacking. The secondary characters were extremely interesting and whited my appetite for this Vampire/Shifter world. There were a few strange sentence structures but not enough to deter from the storyline. I’m really looking forward to more from this author, namely her new book coming Jan 2013 about the crazy Vampire King. I believe this author will prefect her craft and when she does, were in for a real treat.

Flow of book – 3
Believable romance – 3
Overall Plot – 4
