Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member of the Dracule—a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls—the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral…until Angelica.
Angelica Woodmore possesses the Sight, an ability invaluable to both sides of a looming war among the Dracule. Her very scent envelops Voss in a scarlet fog of hunger—for her body and her blood. But he is utterly unprepared for the new desire that overcomes him—to protect her.
Now Voss must battle his very nature to be with Angelica…but this vampire never backs down from a fight.
Viscount Dewhurst otherwise known as Voss usually strays from the spotlight. Voss is also part of an exclusive member of the Dracule. Members of Dracule are gentlemen that have been branded with a mark to show that they have given up their souls and became…yep, you guessed it…vampires.
Angelica and her two sisters are under the care of Lord Corvindale, while their brother Cas is gone. Angelica and her sisters are gifted with the gift of “sight.” Angelica embraces the gift, though at times it can seem useless. For example, Angelica has visions of someone’s fate but she can do nothing to stop it from coming true.
Voss and Lord Corvindale share a mutual hatred for each other. So when Voss meets Angelica and learns she has the gift of sight, he plans to use her. Though, he never expected to have feelings toward her.
I have been a fan of Mrs. Gleason’s, since her Garden Vampire Chronicles series. Her newest trilogy, the Regency Draculia is great. I thought Voss and Angelica were nicely matched. Angelica is independent and not afraid to speak her mind, even if it might get her in trouble. Voss on the other hand is not used to a woman like Angelica and needs someone like her in his life, who can help keep him in check every once in a while. This is why they are so good together. There was not a lot of romance going on in this book. The element I liked the most was the historical aspect. It took me back in time and I felt like I was experiencing everything through Angelica’s eyes. The Vampire Voss is sinful and delicious. I want seconds!
