A vampire prince fighting to liberate his people. A stunning photographer intrigued by the supernatural world. Together they must save their vampire kingdom...or die trying.

Sexy vampire Christopher Dal has spent centuries recruiting free-thinkers and dreamers to turn into vampires. When he meets Alice, Christopher knows she would be the perfect addition to his vampire family. But once he turns her, he will become her sire and any romance between them will be impossible...and he's already falling in love with her.

Alice Jones's dearest dream is to become a full-time photographer, leave her boring day job, and explore the world. But when she meets the handsome and mysterious Christopher at her first art show, she discovers that the world is more magical and perilous than she ever imagined. Just when immortality is within Alice's reach, a vampire civil war erupts between Christopher's followers and his power-hungry brother, Rhys. With the fate of vampire kind in Alice's hands, will she choose safety or love?

Medieval thread woven into modern vampire romance

AJ Tipton has created a new vampire world with slightly different rules. These vampires can compel their sirelings making the relationship between creator and creation far more complex. Christopher, a vampire prince, and Alice, a human struggling photographer, experience instant attraction. Christopher recognises fabulous vampiric potential in Alice but is unsure of what to do. He wants to change her because of her potential but on principal, as her sire, he will be giving up any chance of a relationship because he doesn't want complete control of his lover. Throw all of that into a political situation where the current vampire king has suddenly died and one of his sirelings is claiming the thrown rightfully meant for Christophers. Drama! Drama! Drama!

The story has a lot of interesting characters. The coronation of the new king marks the initial incident to define further books in the series. AJ Tipton has provided a good introduction to this world, though this is not the best vampire romance I have ever read/listened to.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

20 min & had to stop listening! Whiny Narrator!

I couldn't get into the story for suffering the sound of a haughty and whiny narrator. UUGH! Not enough variation in tone to distinguish between characters either!

Yeah, no!

Nope, nope, nope! Nope to it all. The narrator and story were horrible and that’s saying a lot coming from me.

Great Vampire Romance

The story is interesting and keeps you hooked all the way to the conclusion. I enjoyed the characters and unique storyline.

The narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life.

This is a sweet paranormal romance with some steamy moments between the vampire prince and Alice. I enjoyed the HEA conclusion and what a great vampire Chris is. His brother in the other hand is horrible!

This is a great start to a new vampire series! I'm glad that it did not end in a cliffhanger. I'm looking forward to reading more books from this series.

Keeps getting better.

I gave this book five stars because it was well written and worth the time to read. The story of romance during time of impending war between the good vampires and the bad was an excellent story and the plot had twists and turns that kept me reading page after page. I could not put this down. The romance between Christopher and Alice was incredibly strong and enduring. Alice had to fight for their love when Christopher thought he had no choice but to walk away from her because of the hortatory. She proved him wrong. An excellent read. I highly recommend this book. It will not disappoint.

Disappointing

The story was promising, but the narrator was considerably lacking. The poor performance ruined the story for me.

good story line

I liked the story line but i hated the narrator. she sounds really whiny when she talks in her female voice. I can ignore it to some extent but I won't continue with the series because of her

redhat queen

I really enjoyed this book. It was full of love and laughter. It was a different kind of story about a vampire’s love. The woman Alice was kind of funny in her actions trying to get Christopher to keep her and to love her even though he had rules not to. The narrator was very good.

Cute

Although the story was short, I felt a lot happened and in a way that didn't make the entire thing feel rushed. I didn't like the narrator's voice for the two characters, but it might be due to the fact that I just recently finished listening to another audible. The story was cute though, and the difficulties that had to overcome was a bit refreshing.

Cute but Cheesy

I could not listen to this narrator. Her accents were awful. The story is cute but UBER predictable and cheesy. It’s a fluff piece, but not bad for a few hours distraction.
