Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his.
Lilah has fought her desire for Javier since arriving at his theatre as a servant but each glance he has stolen, his eyes promising pleasure that will satisfy her longing for him, has chipped away at her defenses and she can no longer deny her need and her forbidden feelings for the powerful vampire male.
When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilah’s master keep them apart forever?
Covet is Felicity Heaton’s 1st book in her new Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance Series.
We are introduced to a world where there are different classes of vampires: the Aristocrats or pure bloods, and the Elite who have blood that are mixed with humans. This is a world where vampires can bind a human to them as their servants and it is forbidden for another vampire to even touch another vampire’s human.
This is the first of Felicity’s books that I’ve read and oh, my, I really enjoyed this book, and it was very *fans self* steamy, and I’m just going to mention a small detail of a grey silk tie ;) To me, Covet wasn’t what I feel to be the typical PNR book that I usually read where as in the main characters are some major ass-kickers, but Javier and Lilah are simply 2 characters who fall in love with each other regardless of the law forbidding them from being together. Now, there is definitely some ass-kicking in the book when Lilah’s master discovers what has transpired between her and Javier.
With this book being a novella we miss the initial build up of the feelings that Javier and Lilah begin to feel for each other, but we meet them at a point when they’ve been struggling with holding back their feelings for 2 years and until one night they stop fighting and succumb to their desires and I was sucked into their story. I thought the story flowed well and I totally fell in love with the characters. I will definitely be keeping an eye open for further books in the series and look forward to getting to know the other characters better.
