Ten years ago, a fight against the twin hunters Aleksis and Izabella Romanov brought two vampires of the Venia bloodline, Sophis and Vivek, close to death and changed their lives forever. The events of that night turned Sophis and Vivek against each other, shattering their close friendship and driving them apart.
Now, on the eve of a centenary Creator Day masquerade, they discover a small army of vampire hunters are gathering in Saint Petersburg, led by their nemeses Aleksis and Izabella. The two captains must face their past and their feelings if they are going to overcome their differences and work together. Their chance for vengeance, the safety of the seven pure vampire bloodlines, and their future is hanging in the balance.
Can Sophis and Vivek realise their true feelings for each other before it’s too late to save the bloodlines from not only the vampire hunters but a deadly threat from within their own bloodline?
Action packed and filled with sexiness!
As Vampires of the Venia bloodline, Captains Sophis and Vivek were virtually inseparable, until their enemy’s thirst for power left Sophis on the verge of death and her friendship with Vivek severed. When they learn their enemies are plotting an attack against all of the pure vampire bloodlines, Sophis and Vivek must come together to protect their race. The two are adamant about working together and when old wounds and feelings resurface, Sophis and Vivek realize this might be their toughest assignment yet…
This book tells the story of captains Sophis and Vivek, two strong and stubborn lead characters with a love-hate relationship that keep you intrigued from the very first page. Both characters are fighters, which makes their love story that much intense. She’s young and headstrong and he’s overprotective and distant. Their arguments are just as heated as their passion and they make one great Alpha couple. I love the ongoing sexual tension between Sophis and Vivek, it slowly builds throughout the story for a scorching romance.
Masquerade brings all the vampire bloodlines together under one roof, introduces us to some despicable villains and incorporates some familiar faces from the previous books in series. It’s full of emotion and twists and turns that keep the story unpredictable. Sophis and Vivek will keep you reading till the wee hours of the morning with their witty banter and steamy rendezvous!
Felicity Heaton always delivers a gripping story with captivating characters (including the evil villains) and MASQUERADE is no exception. She’s a master at creating an intriguing, dark vampire world and developing strong characters that steal your heart. When it comes to writing, the woman can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned! That being said, MASQUERADE is a stellar edition to the Vampires Realm series.
*This book can easily be read as a stand-alone but you’ll want to read them all when you’re done!
