Lord of The Vampires
by Gena Showalter
Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina—stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge—and the only woman who could help him.
In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory…but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.
Where to Buy
Nicolai: Hero in Lord of the Vampires
Nicolai is the Crown Prince of Elden. His people call him “The Dark Seducer,” for he has a temper so fearsome everyone trembles at the mere mention of it. And yet, he has always been gentle with his women—though none have ever been able to tame his wanton ways. In fact, everything has always been easy for him. Winning fights, bedding wenches, and even stealing other people’s magic. Once upon a time, he had never known a single hardship, and so he was a wee bit spoiled. Until the Blood Sorcerer came along, and he was stripped of his crown, his abilities, and even his memories. He also loses his freedom, forced to serve a cruel mistress as her sex slave.
I adored writing Nicolai’s journey. From emotionally distanced—except for that temper!—to a man capable of feeling soul-deep love for one special female. His female. (I feel sorry for all the creatures in the book that disagree!) His sense of possession is so great, he would defy time and space just to be with her. And he does! So, yeah, I’ll just admit it. I had the best time watching this naughty womanizer brought to his knees.
Inspiration for Lord of the Vampires
I’ve always been fascinated by the story of Alice in Wonderland. A young girl wakes up in a whole new world, with no idea who (or what) to trust, fantastical magic around every corner, and her curious nature getting her into all kinds of trouble. I used to put myself in Alice’s place, wondering what I would do, where I would go. And of course, anytime I insert myself into a scene, I also insert a very sexy guy.
But I digress. This time, when I sat down to retell Alice, it wasn’t myself that I saw but Jane Parker, a studious scientist with a haunted past. One morning she wakes and finds herself trapped in mythical realm with Berserkers, shifters, and evil sorcerers. But the most dangerous creature of all? The vampire prince who has an insatiable hunger for her blood. Yeah, this wonderland has fangs—and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
