Review: The Vampire Voss by Colleen Gleason

The Vampire Voss by Colleen Gleason

Amazon Product Description:
Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member of the Dracule—a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls—the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral…until Angelica.
Angelica Woodmore possesses the Sight, an ability invaluable to both sides of a looming war among the Dracule. Her very scent envelops Voss in a scarlet fog of hunger—for her body and her blood. But he is utterly unprepared for the new desire that overcomes him—to protect her.
Now Voss must battle his very nature to be with Angelica…but this vampire never backs down from a fight.

I got this as an ARC from - 

My thoughts:
I LOVED these Characters!  I can't say enough about the author's ability to create incredible characters.  Voss of course is my favorite - who could read this story and not walk away absolutely in love with Voss.  Angelica is the perfect match!  Her personality is fantastic, her spunky attitude is great.  There are so many characters that seem to play small parts, but as the story progresses they become more.

The setting is ideal! Jane Austen meets Bram Stoker!  I enjoyed the chaperones and social engagements of the time.  The fashions and trends were fun considering how important appearance is to Voss.

I found myself not wanting to put the story down.  I was so into the lives of the characters that I just had to know what was going to happen next.  

This is not your average hot, fast romance story - - - it is a wonderfully thought out, beautifully written story of life, love, the differences between people, the journey to happiness, and the chance to be the person you choose to be.
