Review of The Vampire Voss

The Vampire Voss (Regency Draculia #1)
The Vampire Voss

Mira 3/23/11
ISBN 9780778329527
   This is the first book in the Regency Draculia series. In this episode we encounter Voss, Viscount Dewhurst. Voss is one of Lucifer's own who feeds on sensual pleasures and blood. As part of Lucifer, he has been given eternal life; but has also been marked with a talisman on his back that pains unbearably when not doing something that Lucifer wants him to do. Voss is a selfish and self-centered man who stops at nothing to get what he wants.
   Our heroine in this story is Angelica Woodmore who has been blessed with the 'Sight,' depending on whose viewpoint you are looking at. Angelica is not a weak, frail female; but she is not a take charge kind of girl either.
   There is a battle brewing between the Draculia and the Woodmore sisters are bargaining chips so to speak. Voss has taken a fancy to Angelica and her scent and her blood envelops him. Angelica finds Voss attractive and is eager to taste his kisses. What will happen between these two if and when she discovers that Voss is Vampir?
   The story started off very slowly and took some time to get into any action. This made me a little nervous because normally I get grabbed by a vampire story from the very beginning. After the storyline started moving, the pace picked up somewhat; but then part way through the book it slowed down again. This is not your usual vampire story with a lot of action and sexual tension. There was a little romance; but not enough to get the blood heated.
   Sometimes the storyline became a little too wordy and the dialogue coming from Voss'es head was a little too 'hokey.' Changes take place in Voss, as well as, Angelica; but they seem to happen very abruptly. In general, the story was fairly good. If you are looking for a different and unusual vampire story, this one is for you. If you are expecting alot of action and sex with your vampires, you are not going to see it here.
   I  received this free as an eBook from the publisher through Netgalley's book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's regulations.
I give The Vampire Voss 3 out of 5 stars
