"Once upon a time...the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs...and time is running out...." Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate "The Dark Seducer" had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina--stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge--and the only woman who could help him. In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai's memory...but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

I have been getting into Gena Showalters books after coming across the Atlantis series (read the vampires bride , The Nymph King and have Jewel of atlantis and dragon king to read)
and i have to say she is a AWESOME writer .. Gena knows how to draw the reader in and keep them Hooked and every page is DEF a page turner ...
i have ordered this book on book depository (as in new zealand hard to get alot of her books) and cant wait for it to arrive and im picking it will be as amazing as her atlantis series if not BETTER!!!
def recommend this author to anyone that likes their paranormal romance and romance with a lil spice (and sexy scenes)

281 pages of addicting action! Be it action or 'action', if you catch my drift. Yes, I'm saying this book has some serious sexual tension and which makes for hot scenes later on, not for prudes trust me. So, let's get into the story!
Nicolai has been held captive in the castle of Queen of Hearts, used as a slave by the queen's daughters, he has no memory but a sense of vengeance like no other, he has to kill someone but who? What little he knows is he's a vampire and someone is blocking him from using magic to free himself. But as he finds himself able to tap into little magic he summons help.
In the normal world Jane is recovering from a car accident, just having learned to walk again her life is constructed of mourning the loss of her family and keeping up the sad routine of her life when a book waits on the footsteps of her cabin as she comes home one day, unable to stop reading it she dreams of the man in the book, Nicolai. Falling asleep in her bed, she wakes up in a castle being called a princess.
Luckily Jane isn't a dumb girl, when she used to work, before the accident, she studies fringe science, quantum physics, so teleportation and dimensional travel aren't foreign concepts - but that said experiencing it is different! Having a cool analytical head on her shoulders saves her from panic and a hissy fit, and soon she discovers that the book she read before falling asleep is now her reality, and coming face-to-face with Nicolai awakes desires she never knew existed before this. And having Nicolai practically hunt and stalk her makes her knees wobble. But then again there is the trouble of a different dimension and the fact that Nicolai is chained and held captive with no memory of who he is. What can Jane do?
Oh I loved this book! I'm fully addicted and must immediately get my paws on the following 3 books!
Nicolai is wonderful, just the kind of hero you want, an insanely powerful vampire bound from his magic, tall, strong and deeply obsessed with having his heroine no matter what. That type of lust and graving is just Delicious to read! Jane is damaged and doesn't think too highly of herself until Nicolai shows her just how much there is still to appreciate even if you have a scarred body and your just too thin after your hospital stay.
You want these two to make it through their trouble and be together forever... you root for them from the first chapter on.
There were parts that had me giggling, little embarrassed but somehow it worked - Nicolai when his scary temper flares turns to a beast, not civilized at all, and the way he speak become very clipped - almost as if he doesn't realize what comes out of his mouth and his thoughts are just blurted out. It's almost like his emotions become too much to handle and he looses his ability to be eloguent. Heh! It's actually fun to read! (see the quote above and below)
He snarled a sound of pure menace, his scary animal nature racing back to the forefront. "Mine." He stopped just in front of them, daring them to act.
This was so good I want to go and read it again even though I just finished it! ;)

OMG! LOVED THIS BOOK!! Gena Showalter is one of my favorite authors, and once again, she has proven herself to me! She has created a magical universe that is set back in time, and holds the magical creatures that we see as fiction. It was full of twists, turns, magic, and erotic love scenes. The two main characters, Jane and Nicolai, collide in a frenzy of passion despite the danger that they very quickly find themselves in. I love Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series, and I have a feeling that I will love this brand new series just as much! I rarely give a book this high of praise, but this is a story that deserves every bit!
