Wicked Reads Reviews – Knights Vampire by Kryssie Fortune

Betrayed by the Knight Defenders and murdered by his cousin, crusader knight Blaxton de Ferrers rose as a vampire. For nine centuries, he’s preyed on the people he once swore to protect. Gradually, as his emotions leach out of him, he forgets how to feel. Then he meets Harriet.

Harriet Mortlake’s a strong sassy woman who battles her weight and her temper. Her job is to seek out the ancient secrets of the castle that was Blaxton’s childhood home. Instead, she finds the love of her life.

When danger threatens Harriet, Blaxton steps in. Harriet and Blaxton are a match made in heaven. Except... he’s a vampire and to fully claim her, he’ll have to kill her.

Mary Jo☆☆☆
Harriet Mortlake is the new archivist at Whitborough Castle. This is her dream job, and now she’s having to defend herself to one Blaxton de Ferrers. She’s instantly attracted to him and with the way he’s flirting with her, she would almost say it’s mutual. Except for the fact that she’s almost six feet tall and 10 pounds overweight. Little does she know, but the guy she’s into is really a vampire. Blaxton was tricked out of his soul centuries ago and hates the fact that he is soulless and feels nothing for anyone or anything.

The attraction between the characters is obvious but the entire story covers a two day period. Day 1: they meet, clash, flirt, go out and have mind boggling sex. Day 2: she goes to work, gets kidnapped by Blaxton’s creepy vampire cousin, finds out that there is such thing as vampires, stands up to creepy cousin, is rescued by Blaxton and they have a long talk about what it means to be vampire.

I wish the story would have been spread out so that the characters could have gotten to know one another rather than the “insta-love insta-mate.” Even taking into consideration that it is a novella, it moved too far, too fast to feel believable. Harriet’s not freaked out by the fact that a) Blaxton’s creepy cousin kidnapped her; b) that Blaxton is a vampire too; c) that she’s Blaxton’s mate; and finally d) that if he feeds from her during an orgasm she will become vampire as well. Unfortunately the implausibility of the storyline – yes, even for a paranormal romance – made this just an okay read for me.

If you love sexy vampires, possessive werewolves, muscular Fae, and ancient Gods, then Kryssie’s your girl. Her Otherworld ­– a place of magic, not machines – stems from local legends and myths. Scattered Siblings is a series of stand-alone books, set in the Otherworld.

She’s a Yorkshire lass, and she’s lucky to live within driving distance of Whitby – ­the home all things paranormal and strange. A chunk of Curse of the Fae King and her upcoming release To Mate A Werewolf is set there. It's also where Bram Stoker penned Dracula. She loves mythology and visiting ancient sites, although she hasn’t any Yorkshire werewolves ­ yet.

Her pet hates are unhappy endings, and cliff hanger endings. ~ Loose Id bio
