Publisher's Summary

On the night of the blood moon, the Vampire Lord must die.

Floriane's position as the forge maiden of Hunter's Hamlet is one of reverence, for it is her skill that arms and protects the vampire hunters. She knows her place and is a faithful servant to the Master Hunter and her community...until the night of the blood moon. Until her brother is dying at the hands of the Vampire Lord Ruvan. 

Wanting to defend her home at all costs, Floriane fights the vampire lord, ready to give her life if it means taking his. But Ruvan doesn't want to take her life...he wants her.

Kidnapped and brought to the vampire castle, Floriane is now blood sworn to the vampire lord. She is bound in mind and body to her worst enemy. But Ruvan isn’t the fiend she thought he was. She learns the truth of the vampires: They are not mindless monsters, but a proud people, twisted and tortured by an ancient curse.

Ruvan believes that Floriane might be the key to ending his people's suffering. All Floriane wants is to defend her home. Loyalties are tested and the line between truth and lie is blurred.

When her dagger is at his chest, will she be able to take the heart of the man who has claimed hers?

A darkly reimagined Snow White meets inspiration from Beauty and the Beast in an epic fantasy world of hunters, vampires, and curses that run deeper than blood. This stand-alone is complete with a "happily ever after" ending. It's perfect for fantasy romance fans looking for just the right amount of steam and their next slow-burn and swoon-worthy, enemies-to-lovers story.

While it is set in the Married to Magic universe, listeners can start with this book.

An interesting twist to vampires!

Elizabeth Evans is one of my favorite narrators and I purchased these books solely because of her but also enjoy having a story I can conclude in one book. While I think there is a lot more that could be explored in these stories that they can almost seem anticlimactic I still have enjoyed them & would recommend the Married to Magic universe to others!

Very enjoyable

I found this book to be intriguing, well written, and fun to listen too. While I love romance book I often get bored halfway and leave it. This one kept my attention and kept me engaged. Well worth it!

Ok I loved

Probably one of my favorite female inner monologues. Strong willed, self aware and so much growth.

Loved it

I love all the Married to Magic books, however this one may just be my favorite. Loved the back and forth between Ruvan and Floriane.

Good story but did not like the narration

I enjoyed this story but I have to be honest I did not love the narrator for this story. I felt like she did not do a good job of differentiating between the characters and she did not have the voice to carry off this main character. I took the advice of someone who has dealt with this before and they told me to speed up the narration because sometimes it helps if nothing else you get done sooner and that is actually what I did and it did help. I liked the premise, the plot, the mystery, the romance was OK it wasn’t like the first two books but I did like that this book had more intrigue than the other two. I enjoyed learning about the lost, the fallen, and the cursed. I like how strong Floriane is and how she had a take charge way about her and I did like all the side characters. I love the end where there might be a love match but do we get to see it through to fruition or not only Elise knows lol but I thought it was cute and of course I did like that there was a happy ending.

Great addition to an already phenomenal collection

As always, Elise Kova has knocked it out of the park. Dual with a Vampire lord was a phenomenal addition to the Married to Magic collection.

As with the other books, Kova has taken well known fantasy tropes and turned them into something fresh and new. Her take on Vampiric magic is a breath of fresh air that I greatly appreciate.

While DWAVL isn’t my favorite of the MTM collection, it’s still a stand out story that is well worth your time and stands far above many of the romance fantasy books out there to date.

I can’t wait for the next installment!
