The Big Bad Wolf Series Book 1: The Heat by Heather Killough Walden
The Vampire King description:
It was immediate for Roman. In three thousand years, he’d never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed.
Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.
Unbeknownst to her, Roman D’Angelo is exactly what he appears to be – a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the king of vampires.
Unfortunately, while Roman is both ancient and invulnerable, Evie is flesh and blood. Just as Roman decides that he and Evie have a date with destiny, for reasons of their own, an ancient god and a homicidal vampire take an equally strong interest in her. To make things more complicated, there’s something very special about Evie. Something not quite human.
Can Roman fight off the incredible forces that would have Evie as their own long enough to win her heart, or will destiny betray him, and destroy everything he has ever dreamed of?
“Lalura had told him about her vision. Thirteen kings on a chess board – and thirteen queens….”
this was a pretty awesome book… even better really than the Big Bad Wolf series… though I will say if you haven’t read that series this book will make no sense… I was struggling to remember the people and events they were talking about… but really this series has promise of being much better than the Wolf series because it was only about the werewolves… while the Kings is about the 13 Kings of basically all the 13 non human sectors of the world… it’s really turning from just a paranormal romance into a more fantasy adventure type story… honestly the romance angle was a main part of this book but wasn’t the sole event as there were several more things going on… but when it finally did reach it it was a little unrealistic… it was like Killough-Walden was running out of time and had to stick the scene in but it just seemed like an odd time to be making happy slappy with each other considering the situation leading up to this…
but other than that the story was pretty great and I really liked Roman, his confusion of suddenly being so attracted to a human woman was rather sweet… and Evie I think handled it all well and wasn’t like some stories where the women are all like hey you want to suck my blood go for it… YEAH!!! instead she seemed more realistic, even considering she had been dreaming of such a thing happening to her her whole life she wanted to know what was happening and had genuine concern for her own safety which made sense to me… the only thing that really bothered me about this book was Killough-Walden would completely repeat scenes from the views of different characters… and it didn’t really add anything to the book and was a little confusing at times…
Altogether excited about this series and can’t wait for the next book… 😀
