Seduced by the Vampire King by Laura Kaye
Vampire Warrior Kings #2
Paranormal Romance

Kate Bordessa’s parents are members of the Electorate but she wants nothing to do with becoming a Proffered so she flees to Moscow. She knows the injured man is a vampire and when he drinks her blood she finds herself strangely connected to him. Nikolai doesn’t think he deserves happiness or the honor of being King after his brothers are killed so he fights the idea of mating with Kate.

I liked that this one felt more modern than the last one and that we got some action with the Soul Eaters to better understand that part of the story. Even though Kate still ends up with a vampire it feels more real, or at least a product of fate, unlike the Proffered storyline of the first book. The Proffered train to be a virgin woman that the vampires can drink from and sleep with in hopes that they’ll be their mate. This felt a bit too much like brain washing so I liked that Kate appeared to think more for herself. Granted her reaction to Nikolai and visa versa is insta-love but there was a sweetness to it once Nikolai gets over his funk. I just wish there could have been more development into real feelings between Kate and Nikolai because their love for each other was pretty intense almost immediately. Of course, it’s not a very long book so I understand that things have to be rushed but still.

3 out of 5 stars

Book Details

American exchange student Kate Bordessa has fled to Russia to escape her family’s hopes that she’ll become one of the Proffered, human women who feed and mate with elite vampire warriors. But when she stumbles upon a wounded vampire in the streets of Moscow, she’s instinctively driven to protect him–and feels an undeniable spark of desire.

Grieving over the deaths of his brothers, Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev has thrown himself into battling his enemies, focused only on vengeance. Until the attack that brought him to Kate. Their sexual attraction explodes into a night of uncontrolled passion–a night that marks them as mates. Is their connection strong enough to convince them to embrace a destiny neither of them was expecting?
