This was a very interesting new brand of vampire for me. Set in present day, yet it had an almost historical feel with the various levels within the vampire social hierarchy. There are also many rules that must be followed in their world. I truly feel that rules are supposed to be broken. Javier and Lilah feel the same way I do about rules.
The very human Lilah belongs to an aristocratic lord vampire. She hates him and the way he has taken her from one hell and made her into a servant in another. She is thankful that she remains far from him and close to the elite vampire Javier. She works at the Vampirerotique Theatre that Javier is part owner of. She has watched him and lusted after him for two years.
Javier has also watched and lusted after Lilah. He knows that to succumb to his desire will cause her immense pain. He will also be in violation of a very sacred law that is punishable by a painful death that he may not defend himself from. He knows that he should not covet one that belongs to another, but when it comes to Lilah he can’t seem to help it.
The forbidden, the woman who belongs to another, the potential passion and two years of watching from afar has drove Javier into Lilah’s ….. well. I think the fact that they knew there would be punishment for their actions and yet they still wanted one another without care of the consequences made this novella so incredibly sexy. They never once had the thought of “if” we get caught, it was “when.”
There sex scenes are highly erotic. There is a spicy blend of voyeurism, mild bondage, mild dominance and some very intense sex scenes. The performances of the theatre are an added bonus to the flames that Javier and Lilah are throwing.
