Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with a need for vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.

Nicolai the Vampire is renowned for his virility, but in a cruel twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” has become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina—stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remains is a primal need for freedom, revenge—and the only woman who can help him.

When the wanton vampire summons Jane Parker, she is helpless to obey. She's drawn to his dark sexuality and into his magical realm. But for this human, all is not a fairy tale. For saving Nicolai could mean losing the only man she's ever craved.

My Thoughts
Although I'm not a huge Gena Showalter fan, I found the writing in this book flowed easily and the story itself was refreshing and full of twists and turns.  
I thought the really ugly princess sisters were a barrel of laughs and quite fun to read.
I initially didn't like Jane at all
For me, she was a hard character to get, and I actually felt she was a little too boring for Nicolai. Luckily she loosened up somewhat towards the middle.

There were only a few sneak peaks into the rest of the characters in this series so you really are left guessing as to how the other books will continue the opening prologue.

Overall, a very enjoyable read and I cant wait to read the stories for Nicolai's siblings. 
4 Stars ;]
