Henrik Magnusson is supposed to be immortal, but a mysterious ailment leaves the vampire king near death, and not even the blood of the Proffered, human virgins trained to serve the elite, can sustain him. Then he rescues a beautiful young woman from his enemies, and is filled with blood lust and desire he hasn't felt for centuries.
Photographer Kaira Sorenson's life takes a nightmare turn when she's attacked by blood-thirsty creatures—and saved by a vampire. She should be afraid of Henrik, but she can't deny her intense attraction to this regal, enigmatic being—nor the fact that her blood may be his only salvation. Now she must decide if she's willing to be his forever…
Taken by the Vampire King (Vampire Warrior Kings #3) by Laura Kaye
My Rating 3 out of 5
Good quick read, about 72 pages, although I did listen to it on audible. I like to listen to books when the main male character has an accent, especially Scottish or British. Henrik is neither, he is Norwegian, so not as sexy but anyway... I did like the story and I like Henrik and Kaira together. I guess I didn't love it because as soon as I got into it, the book was over. I listened book two, Seduced by the Vampire King, back in November and I rated it a 4. It could been simply because he had a Russian accent. I don't know.
All three books are standalone and good when you want just a bite of vampire. (teehee)
