Synopsis - Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with a need for vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.   Nicolai the Vampire is renowned for his virility, but in a cruel twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” has become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina—stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remains is a primal need for freedom, revenge—and the only woman who can help him.   When the wanton vampire summons Jane Parker, she is helpless to obey. She's drawn to his dark sexuality and into his magical realm. But for this human, all is not a fairy tale. For saving Nicolai could mean losing the only man she's ever craved.

My thoughts: When I read this the characters seemed like they were missing something. I liked their personalities but they're a little to common. You could almost predict what was going to happen. It never truly shocked me. I'll read the next three books and see how it ends.
Jane Parker was the character I liked more. Figuring her out took a little more time, and some of it shocked me. (sarcasm)
If the book had more feeling and depth behind it I truly think I could have enjoyed  the story.
