A satisfying erotic, vampire romance!
Arden is a young woman, homeless in the dangerous streets of 19th century London. One night while walking, she’s accosted by man and is rescued by a handsome stranger who has some less than conventional rescuing methods! After assuring she is safe, the handsome stranger introduces himself as Brandon Ridley and offers Arden a maid’s position in his home.
As a centuries old vampire, Brandon has a longing for a life companion and is bewitched by Arden from their first encounter. He plans on seducing her through her dreams until she succumbs to his charming ways and gives herself to him freely. Arden is satisfied with her fantasies in dreams of Brandon, but the more attention he shows her, the more enamored she becomes with him in her waking life. Brandon is pleased his plan of seduction has won Arden over, but in order to share his gift of eternal life with her, he must face his jealous sire and seduce him into approving this union or surrender to a lonely existence once again.
Arden and Brandon are two souls from different worlds, longing for the same thing, companionship. Their story is a mix of sweet but highly erotic. Brandon’s game of seduction is a wonder to behold, he is one sensual vampire. Arden might seem pure and innocent at first glance, but there’s a vixen waiting to get out and Brandon is just the man for the job! The twist and addition of a potential villain makes the story a little more interesting and keeps you on the edge. Vampire Dreams is a short novella that wastes no time in delivering a romance with vampires, seduction and enough eroticism to have you fantasizing for the rest of the day!
