Tasting Camilla

Camilla has been caught at night in a bar by vampires. Instead of feeding on her, they take her down to their basement and push her into a room with a man lying on a bed. The man is so handsome Camilla wishes he was not a monster because he turns her on. Vladislas is so bored with his immortal life that he has stopped eating and just lies there, but with Camilla he gets up and talks to her. Her employer and friend Brandt, a vampire bounty hunter, told Camilla she has a special element in her blood that attracts vampires. Because of cuts on her body the other vampires opened, Vladislas can smell the element and is attracted to it. He tells her the element is vampire blood. Something must have happened to her that she is blocking out. Vladislas tells her if she is not converted to a vampire she will go mad from vampire blood, so he asks her and she convertes.

This is just part of the story, Brandt's story is told next. Brandt and Elisa, the vampires who order her to be put her into the room have made an agreement. Brandt side of the deal has Camilla protected and Elisa gets her master starting a new life and that will be the end of it. However, there is sexual chemistry between the two that might make them more than enemies.

The author has woven a short story that is only thirty-five pages long but it makes you wish it was so much longer. The craving to see how the characters' lives turn out is a major pull to seeking the next book. The characters are flesh out and seem to think for themselves. I hope this is just the start of a long term series.
