Publisher's Summary

In a world of perpetual night, vampires rule and humans have no chance of escape.

On the surface, my life must appear one of lavish design. As a courtesan for the vampire royals, extravagant gowns are tailor-made to hug my curves, ensuring I look my best as an ornament decorating a luxurious palace. 

What is the cost of all this splendor? My blood, my body . . . and my soul. 

After being arrested for war crimes, I volunteered to become a consort to the three kings to allow my family time to escape. But when the malicious leader of the human rebellion demands I betray my new lovers, even I'm surprised to discover my loyalties have shifted. 

My body now craves the touch of my vampiric kings, awakening a burning passion within me to protect them from an uprising that could bring them to their knees. Can I find a way to protect all those I love, or will I pay with my life for daring to care for both sides? 

Contains mature themes.

A great fast burn reverse harem!

I loved both of the narrators but even more I loved the story. If your looking for hot vampires, steamy romance and a great ride, than this book is for you.

Cliff Hanger smh

Perhaps I just overlooked the info somewhere else but this is the first of an apparent series and the ending is infuriating. Retrospectively, I wouldn’t have read it without confirming that the series was complete.

Pretty good, But.....

If you dont like a lot of Moderate to Heavy Sexual themes and innuendos and acts then this book isnt for you. Overall i found the story actually intriguing, There are several other authors who have taken the "Humanity has been over run and is now nothing but property" angle in their stories but every one has its own unique flair, this is a very Fast burn story that drew me in.

The male Narrator however, i felt they could have done better with, or he could have changed the inflection and mood of his spoken lines or even the speed of his speech. Even for me he came across just too heavy, and slow, every word had an almost slow paced cadence to it that kinda drove me nuts with that deep, hard pushed "I have to breath between every word" drive to it, instead of just speaking in a civilized tone. The Female Narrator was nearly a polar opposite, i loved her voice, her take on the difference voices she portrayed and more then once found myself skipping the male narrator's chapter just to get back to her point of view.

Cant wait for the next book!

Loved it!!

I thought this book was a great dystopian vampire romance! Please read the summary and details as this book may not be for everyone. This is a steamy reverse harem so, if you are in to that, this is a great book to jump in to. Looking forward to continuing the story!

A note on the narrators, while they were both great, the male narrator was a bit distracting because he was slower than the female which made switching between the two a bit distracting. Not bad though and it was mainly the female narrator throughout the book.

Well...

I have been struggling with this book. I only have an hour left in it and I just don't want to listen. It was slow going. It just didn't meet my standards.

Naughty, Naughty Little pleasure of mine

Great storyline w/ very "sensual" writing. I read the whole book in one sitting, because it was that good. I forgot how fun these books can be.

Should be titled diaries of a vampire whore.

This girl is screwing a new person in every scene. Every single scene of the book has a sexual nature. I couldn’t even take the story seriously. I only made it a few chapters in before returning.

Horrible story

The author must have a sick mind to write a story like this. I am sorry I even listened to a little bit of it.

Great Listen

I was a little worried that this book would be really repetitive but I was pleasantly surprised to listen to this book. The narration was awesome and the story overall kept me on my toes, wondering what would happen next. This book does end on a cliffhanger, so if you are someone who can't deal with that type of ending, make sure you have access to the next book ready. I won't be able to do this because currently, the audiobook version of book 2 isn't available but I wish I could listen to the next one so that I can get some questions answered. If you read the blurb and were a little unsure, read or listen to a sample and see if it captures your curiosity. I would definitely recommend this if you think you will like it. Enjoy!
