Shadow of the Vampire by Meagan Hatfield
Even vampires should never sleep with the enemy.
Vampire princess Alexia Feodorovna has been undead for 125 years, so it's been a while since any man has made her pulse race. Until Declan Black. One look at his bronzed body and a fire like no other consumes her. Then she discovers that he's a dragon lord come to take revenge on the vamps who killed his parents. And claim a crystal said to imbue its owner with incredible powers.
Alexia is ordered to torture and kill the dragon lord. Yet with each reckless encounter, she finds herself consumed by his fiery passion. A passion Declan battles, as well. Will he be able to resist the fire of lust she kindles within him and keep revenge in his heart? Or will he risk everything to quench the burning desire and claim the vampire as his own?
Declan Black becomes the next Dragon King after his parents are murdered by the Vampire Queen Catija. The Vampire Queen also stole the Crystal of Draco which prophecy states he who holds this controls all or destroys one. Declan heads to the vampires lair to retrieve the crystal only to be caught and tortured. He meets the vampire princess Alexia and it is instant lust/love and they are unable to keep their hands off each other. Alexia and Declan find out that Lotharus (evil villain that is terrorizing Queen and Princess) is creating an army of soldiers out of the blood of the ancients and wants to rule the vampires. Of course they defeat Lotharus and find out the Declan's parents are still alive and on Dragon Island. Alexia starts changing because she drank from Declan and she becomes dragon.
INCREDIBLE!! Absolutely great read!! I can't wait for the next book! The characters are great, the story line is great and the sex scenes to die for! If you love Laurell K. Hamilton or J.R. Ward you will definitely love this author!!
