Review: Caressed By Moonlight
Orphaned and left penniless after she ends up having to sell everything she owns to cover her father’s debts, Victoria Kingston finds herself traveling to London with her little sister in tow. She ends up on her aunt’s doorstep, detested by the very woman because of the fact that she resembles the woman whom, by her standards, bewitched her brother and caused him to leave everything he’d ever known behind.
Her aunt makes it clear that she’s not welcome, but she’s more than willing to take her sister off of her hands. She gives the girl an ultimatum, citing that she’ll need to marry in order to see her sibling. She further rubs this fact in by telling Victoria that she must get this done by the end of the month or she will forfeit her right to be her sister’s guardian.
With no other course of action, she confides in her best friend and together they concoct a plan that might offer Victoria the success she needs to gain an end to her own means. Yet there’s one thing she hadn’t counted upon, Prince Dorian Vlahkos. Dark, tall, and handsome, he stirs her blood in ways that no one else ever has. Her attraction grows by the day, yet she does her best to resist his charms.
Thrown into the streets because of a stolen kiss with the man himself, she’s catapulted into a world she’s never really known. Dorian can’t deny that he cares for the lovely minx, although he doesn’t quite understand why. Refusing to leave her on the streets, he agrees to marry her, allowing her to retain her sister’s guardianship; something that she’s truly grateful for.
Although, she doesn’t exactly know what he is, at first, she soon comes to accept him as he is. Her heart refuses to believe that he’s anything but a good man, even if he is a vampire. Bound by love, they strive to make the best of the cards that life has dealt them while trying to protect those they love.
I enjoyed every moment of this story. The heat and the love that played out between both characters were truly endearing. Amanda painted such a vivid picture of their world that it wasn’t hard to get so engrossed and attached to it and the characters within it. I’m truly looking forward to more of Amanda’s work.
Synopsis: Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.
Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.
After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.
