That’s the prophecy that threatened what should have been a lovely weekend retreat for Lavanya Draculesti’s clients.
Count of Love, the world’s first vampire dating service, is her business and her passion. When eight clients are ready to meet—and mate—she plans a weekend retreat at her ancestral home in Romania. Her volatile guests are thrilled with the arrangements. Until the prophecy comes true and a bizarre wolf attacks one of them.
Zev thought he knew—and hated—everything about vampires. However, to gain his families freedom from a vow of servitude to The Prince of Darkness he agrees to protect Lavanya, Vlad’s daughter, while she’s in Romania. The job isn’t an easy one, and Lavanya herself only makes it harder. After a second attempt on her life, Zev realizes that his own demons may be the greatest threat to her survival.
Although The Prince would be happy to kill him for it, Zev can’t resist the powerful attraction he feels for Lavanya. In more than two hundred years, he’s never met a vampire or a woman like her. Disregarding all logic, he hungers for her touch. But between Dracula, the witch, and the demon, he’ll be lucky to survive long enough to claim her.
For Lavanya, Zev awakens intense desires that defy her psychic powers and test her faith. With her new powers emerging and her loved ones in danger, Lavanya finally understands that controlling a beast is not the same as taming it. With her life and her heart in danger, Lavanya must take a leap of faith and choose between two evils to seize the love she craves.
Between Two Evils Review
*I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Lynne Stevie pulled me in with her prologue alone. Between Two Evils starts off talking about demons, prince of darkness, and angry villagers. I really loved how she tied the prologue in with the rest of story. If the prologue doesn’t pull you, then Stevie’s imagery will suck you in. While I was reading this story, it felt like I was watching the movie.
Lavanya is such a fun character, she is beautiful of course, she is half vamp, half human, she is also spunky and caring. Zev is an even more interesting character, he is tall, dark, handsome, part witch and part demon! What’s not to love in this book. Not to mention sassy gargoyles, zombies, and love connections. I love the thought of Lavanya’s dating service for vamps. Such a clever idea.
I love how Stevie mixes her vamp lore with classic lore. For example Renfield is a slave to Dracula in classics, but Stevie makes more like a father figure or confidant to Lavanya . She also mixes in a bit of fairytale lore. If you a fan of paranormal novels, then this a great read for you! I rate this book 5 stars.
