Sum It Up!  My Lord Vampire is perfect for adult romance readers.


In the first of a mesmerizing trilogy, Alexandra Ivy, author of the Guardians of Eternity series, introduces the Immortal Rogues—three vampires duty-bound to protect their own kind even as they fall prey to mortal desires. . .

Centuries have passed since Gideon Ravel dwelled among humans. Now he must infiltrate the cream of London society to earn the trust of one woman. Simone, Lady Gilbert, possesses an amulet of unimaginable power, and no concept of the threat that surrounds her. The ton's gossip prepared him for her beauty and wit. But he is blindsided by her barely disguised sensuality and his growing need to possess her. . .

None of the idle aristocrats who vie for Simone's attentions know about her past. To them, she is the sophisticated, worldly widow known as the "Wicked Temptress." The truth would ruin her, and she has never been tempted to reveal it until now. Yet beneath Gideon's bold, black-eyed stare is a hunger that demands satisfaction and complete surrender. . .and a secret far more dangerous than her own. . . (Goodreads)
Ivy's books never fail to deliver and this book, the first in a series, is up to par. Simone is an unusual woman. She tends to speak her mind and doesn't care overly much what others think of her in a time when women were expected to act a certain way. When Gideon discovers that she owns something of great value that could endanger her, he must somehow gain her trust to get to that something (her amulet). The plot centers around the mystery of the amulet and the antics Gideon goes through to receive Simone's trust.
Simone's character is easy to connect to and likable. She will come off as intelligent, witty, and funny. Her character seems to compliment Gideon's perfectly. Gideon is wilder, charismatic, and exceedingly handsome, but he must rely on more than his looks to capture Simone's heart. The two don't experience that "instalove" that is so prevalent in romance novels; instead, they have a gradual friendship working up to romance. The book itself is not graphic at all, their romance is actually pretty sweet. This book will likely be a quick read, the reader will have a hard time putting the book down during some of the scenes. My Lord Vampire is perfect for adult romance readers.
