Caressed by Night - Amanda J. Greene I received a copy of this book fort the blog tour, and I have to say I’m glad I got to read it. I liked Mss Greene’s new take on how vampires are created –The Ancient Vampires(Purebloods) that is.

Dmitri Arsov is a the last Pureblood with unfathomable powers. Many years ago Ven, his would be successor arranged to have him killed by Red Order witch. Thankfully for Dmitri’s ability to see the future, he played along, and let Ven think he was dead. Centuries later Dmitri decides it is time to claim his rightful place as the King, as well as claim his mate.
I love a good vampire story, and this one is good. Kerstin is a strong character, and stands her own ground. Oh yeah, she does faint once, but who wouldn’t be overwhelmed after finding out so much about things hidden from mortal’s world, as well as event’s that would really change everything? As she said, Ignorance is bliss.

Mmh, I wonder who Ms. Greene will write about next. Hopefully Gabriel? Among the minor characters, he is my fave. He is just soo tortured.
I’ll be sure to pick the first book in the series ‘Caressed by Moonlight’ and read Dorian’s story. He does seem like an interesting character.
Recommended for fans of vampire stories which have a healthy dose of steaminess.
