On Sundays, I take part in the weekly meme, In my Mailbox. It is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren and let you share what books you have received or bought that week.
This week, I was granted access to the galley of The Vampire Voss (release date 01 April 2011). I love vampire stories and I love historical romances, so this is going to be a treat! This is the first in the Regency Draculia series. Thank you NetGalley.
This is what Goodreads said:
Regency London - a dizzying whirl of balls and young ladies pursued by charming men. But the Woodmore sisters are hunted by a more sinister breed: Lucifer's own. Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member of the Dracule - a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls - the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral...until Angelica. Angelica Woodmore possesses the Sight, an ability invaluable to both sides of a looming war among the Dracule. Her very scent envelops Voss in a scarlet fog of hunger - for her body and blood. But he is utterly unprepared for the new desire that overcomes him - to protect her.
And then I thought, why not request the second in the series as well. So I was also given The Vampire Dimitri (Book of the Regency Draculia)
Dimitri, the Earl of Corvindale, should be delighted that the headstrong Maia Woodmore is getting married. His mortal ward and houseguest has annoyed – and bewitched – the Dracule nobleman too long, and denying his animal cravings grows more excruciating by the day.
Miss Woodmore's family has a rather...complicated history with the immortals and she herself possesses a keen sensibility far beyond mere women's intuition. Marriage will give her safety, respectability, and everything else a proper young lady could wish for. Everything, that is, except for passion.
In the looming battle between Dracule factions, all pretenses will shatter as Maia and Dimitir come together in an unholy union of danger, desperation, and fiercest desire.
I got the most wonderful gift in the mail this week – this book . . . yay!!
Across the Universe by Beth Ravis. I am so excited to read it! I won a giveaway on Danielle’s blog, Romance Book Junkies but the book was out of stock everywhere. So Danielle suggested that I list a few books I am wishing for and she would surprise me with one of them. I LOVE your choice, Danielle – thank you so much!! Can’t wait to get reading!
