retro read


[Siren Everlasting Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Futuristic Paranormal Romance, M/M, vampires, HEA]

Count Vladimir Dracul never suspected that the human he found hiding in his stables will change his life and the way he sees the world. But once he finds Bela, Vlad can’t give him up. Fighting prejudices against humans, a vampire Count wanting his blood donor back, and a threat from an old enemy seem like small battles compared to the one he has to fight to win Bela’s heart. Bela was terrified of the vampire that found him and decided to keep him. His experience with vampires has never been good so he has no reason to trust Vlad, even if he wanted to. But when his former owner comes looking for him, Bela has to find the courage to save the one man that has come to mean more to him than his freedom. With the help of a few crazy friends, a werewolf mob boss, and two insane brothers, Vlad and Bela just might have a chance at happiness…if the Ministry of Paranormal Affairs doesn’t get to them first. ** A Siren Erotic Romance


This is a RETRO READ from 2014.

This is a tongue-in-cheek play on names romance. We have Vlad Dracul, Bela his lover, Igorian his assistant, Thyr a panther shifter, an enemy named Helpsing, two big bodyguards named Frank and Ken Stein… you get the idea! ☺

It is a super sweet case of insta-love for Vlad who brings in the helpless Bela who only knows his own name as Boy. Bela/Boy was held captive by another evil vampire as a pet and when Bela escaped he found Vlad to be a warm set of welcoming arms.

Now what I love about this story is Bela. Bela doesn’t apparently speak the language so Bela refers to Bela as Bela and has a stilted vocabulary and understanding of the world. (Some of this doesn’t make any sense given Bela’s time in captivity but it makes for a really hysterical set of dialog between Bela and everyone else.)

It’s very sweet and super funny and has some hot smexy times!

So if you’re looking for something ridiculously light and a fun read – give this one a go!

4.5 of 5 stars
