THE DETERMINED VAMPIRE: Niccolo DiConti has faithfully served as leader of Her Majesty’s army for over a millennium, but he’d rather sunbathe in the Sahara than spend another grueling day under his demented queen’s command. However, no one has ever left her side and lived to tell. So when a powerful goddess prophesies he will meet his salvation—a human woman he must turn into a vampire with her consent—he eagerly rises to the challenge. After all, how hard could it be to seduce a human female into taking the immortal plunge? Harder than he thinks. Because his mate won’t be born for another three centuries, and when he wakes up in the goddess’ tomb, not only is his life a mess, but his destined female isn’t about to settle for a coldhearted vampire. Can he win her over before it’s too late? Not if his enemies have anything to do with it.
AN UNWILLING BRIDE: On the night Helena Strauss meets the fierce, devastatingly handsome vampire who saves her life in the jungles of Mexico, she knows her world will be forever changed. Because an attraction this mind blowing only comes along once in a lifetime—or existence. And when he claims she is his one true mate, destined to be his for all eternity, it’s a fairytale come true. So what if her knight in shining armor is a vampire? Nobody’s perfect. But discovering the powerful, overbearing immortal doesn’t “do love”? Deal breaker. Helena will flee and set out to accomplish the impossible…sever the otherworldly bond between them. And it turns out, Helena is just the leverage Niccolo’s enemies need to break the mighty warrior and wipe out his people.
Review: I couldn’t wait to read this book after I read the first book in the series. I also loved the title of the book.
I loved meeting Helena and even though she knows how to find trouble at every turn, I really like her characteristics. She’s having a bad day. She got bus left and she left her backpack with everything in it on the bus. So she is walking and she comes to this place that just feels different. She takes a look and what does she see? A physically fit man just laying there.
Niccolo Diconti is a vampire. He knew that if the queen found him that he would have things done to him and he would rather do a list of things besides that. So he goes to the Goddess Cimil and boy can she really get you so turned around that you really forget what is going on. Needless to say he is put to sleep for three centuries.
I didn’t know what I would be in for because this is a new author and this is the second in her series. I just want to say that I wasn’t disappointed. I laughed because I just loved the humor between the two. I have to say that Cimil brings a lot of humor to. I just don’t know what this book would be like without all the characters. The author did a great job bringing out everything in her characters. We might not always agree with everything.
I believe that every author should have a chance to write the way they want to. Everyone is not going to like it because you can’t please everyone. I was so happy with the story and loved the way it was written. Sometimes I didn’t know if I was going to laugh or be mad at what they said or just because Niccolo was just being his normal self.
I enjoy reading a story where the characters need help out of a sticky situation and they don’t always know what to do. Those are the ones that I remember the most. I had a great adventure in this book with the sexy vampire. There were times that I was wondering if they would survive or do what they needed to do. I was also sad in some parts.
If you love vampires and goddesses with a since of humor and sometimes goes overboard, and a woman that loves someone no matter what she says then this is the story for you. I can’t wait to read the next one.
