THE DETERMINED VAMPIRE: Niccolo DiConti has faithfully served as leader of Her Majesty’s army for over a millennium, but he’d rather sunbathe in the Sahara than spend another grueling day under his demented queen’s command. However, no one has ever left her side and lived to tell. So when a powerful goddess prophesies he will meet his salvation—a human woman he must turn into a vampire with her consent—he eagerly rises to the challenge. After all, how hard could it be to seduce a human female into taking the immortal plunge? Harder than he thinks. Because his mate won’t be born for another three centuries, and when he wakes up in the goddess’ tomb, not only is his life a mess, but his destined female isn’t about to settle for a coldhearted vampire. Can he win her over before it’s too late? Not if his enemies have anything to do with it.

AN UNWILLING BRIDE: On the night Helena Strauss meets the fierce, devastatingly handsome vampire who saves her life in the jungles of Mexico, she knows her world will be forever changed. Because an attraction this mind blowing only comes along once in a lifetime—or existence. And when he claims she is his one true mate, destined to be his for all eternity, it’s a fairytale come true. So what if her knight in shining armor is a vampire? Nobody’s perfect. But discovering the powerful, overbearing immortal doesn’t “do love”? Deal breaker. Helena will flee and set out to accomplish the impossible…sever the otherworldly bond between them. And it turns out, Helena is just the leverage Niccolo’s enemies need to break the mighty warrior and wipe out his people.

My Thoughts

The worst feeling in the world is when you are expecting so much from a book and then it disappoints you. This is what happened when I read Accidentally Married to a ? Vampire.

I like the human-vampire F/M troupe. However, this one was just all over the place. The world building in this book is unique. I like how there is the concept of fated ones and a the vampire waits for a long time for his lover to awaken him. However, all the twists and turns were way too cheesy and annoying. There was not any flow.

Secondly, the characters were just meh. There wasn’t anything extraordinary about them. Niccolo is your alpha kind of guy. However, I felt he was mean, overbearing, and just extremely annoying. I wanted to smack this guy more than like him in this book. He is so rude to Helena. He is just demanding. Ugh! And his “love” for her is mere obsession. Blech!  Helen was a doormat heroine. I felt that she had no redeeming qualities. She felt insta-love for this guy. She lets him treat her like a china piece. I just couldn’t stand her attitude. There were times I wanted to DNF this book.

The romance is not even romance. There is no steaminess nor substance. The fated reason why they were supposed to be together was more like a reason why the characters loved each other. And the love triangle and stalking, I wanted to slap everyone.

This book brings out the ranter in me. I just felt that it was a waste of time reading this book. It may appeal to some if they like the Christian Grey appeal. However, it did not do it for me.
