Présentation de l'éditeur

Valerie Dearborn wants a cotton candy life, but it’s more like a puffer fish: pointy, unusual, and—if not prepared exactly right—deadly.

In London for graduate school, Val knows she's finally free. Her father and ex-almost-boyfriend are back in California and she's out of the Vampire hunting biz for good. Or is she?

She draws the attention of Lucas, a 1600 year old Vampire, and King to his kind. He’s also wicked hot. As golden as Lucifer, and just as tempting, he makes Valerie an offer she can't refuse— help him find out if the Others (Empaths, Fey and Werewolves) still exist or he'll stop protecting those she loves.

Lucas tells her that Empaths were a Vampire’s biggest weakness before going extinct hundreds of years ago. While the Fey or a Werewolf might kill a Vampire, an Empath could enslave them, seducing or harming with emotions at will. The one detail he leaves out? Valerie is an Empath.

And after 1600 years of an emotionless existence, Lucas wants Valerie like a recovering alcoholic wants a wine cooler.

Can she keep those she loves alive, stop Lucas from munching on her, survive a fanged revolution and still find a way to have that boring, normal life she’s always wanted? Probably not, but boy is she gonna try!

This is a full length novel and contains adult content.

The other reviewers are very accurate in suggesting this book is something new and different. It's in a league of its own. It is like disgustingly good. Also, finally!--I'm 20 and I'm sick of reading about teenagers--in this book I get the supernatural themes that I'm addicted to minus the high school antics that I am bored with. I am so pleasantly surprised. Also, both of the romantic interests are real contenders.

Valerie is also a surprisingly solid protagonist. She is relate-able: she had relevant fears and aspirations, she's humorous, she has charming bad habits, and also the good qualities we've come to expect from strong females heroes. I enjoy the settings, though I wish there was a bit less dialogue and a tad bit more description. The role of the Empath is also an ingenious addition to the story.

Overall, I'm really enjoying the Valerie Dearborn series.

When I saw all the positive reviews with this book on the "recommended for you" screen combined with the .99 price tag, I thought, why not? Not only am I not sorry, but I'm completely hooked and thrilled that it's going to be a series. I've read so many paranormal romance and urban fantasy stories I didn't think there could be a new spin on these old urban legends, but here you have it. There isn't a single moment in this book that I wasn't eager to get to the next page to see what happens and our lovely protagonist is an absolute train wreck waiting to happen but you can't help but like her.

Valerie Dearborn is an Empath but no one knows this except for one. Her mother was killed by vampires when she was just a little girl and her devastated father spent the remainder of his life and Valerie's entire upbringing killing vampires thereafter. Along their "hunting" trips, they find a young boy, Jack, who's parents were also killed by vampires and they essentially grow into one big happy family of hunters, or tried at least. The problem is, because of her empathic abilities, Val cannot possibly thrive under the dark conditions the lifestyle demands and is compelled towards a normal existence. While she struggles with loyalty to her family, she knows she has to escape, except she's completely in love with Jack and teeters on giving up her dreams for him. Jack, who also loves Valerie as the only bright spot in his blighted existence, knows he can't offer her what she needs so he drives her away from the life of vampires and straight into the arms of the vampire King, Lucas, who knows exactly what Valerie is and needs her help to bring the world back to a time of balance where vampires existed with werewolves, empaths, and the Fey. Valerie is terrified of Lucas, but for the protection of her father and Jack, she agrees to help Lucas... that and she can't seem to control her very lustful feelings and emotions for him.

Right off the bat, this book throws us into a very complicated triangle between Jack, Lucas, and Valerie, and although that happens all the time, it really worked here, because I really cannot guess how this series will turn out, and I can completely see Val without either of them as she develops. It pulls you into the drama, but leaves the mystery of werewolves, the Fey, and other empaths, who are supposedly extinct, for future development and revelations. This is just the beginning for Valerie and we don't even know what her powers are exactly, so the growth potential from utterly clueless to instrumental in changing the world promises to be exciting. As for why not a five star rating, there's two reasons. One was Valerie's complete ineptitude. I'm looking forward to her being involved in what's happening as opposed to an innocent bystander who can't control herself. That, and I really hate cliffhangers and this one was a doozy. All in all, I'm thoroughly impressed and definitely look forward to future installments.

Since I got panned for liking a LKH book, I'll keep this one short and sweet. Love is Darkness is a fantastic read. Love the character development especially that of Lucas. I really like how the author made characters that make you relate to them. So so love the story line which is just awesome. Add an empath, vampire hunter and king of all vamps together and how could you go wrong? This is now my favorite vampire series. Hopefully this series will get the recognition it deserves. Cheers to Caroline Hanson on a great first book.

There is a edge in the blend of vivid images and flowing style that takes this novel to a higher level. The mixture of empath and vampire with the Fey following close behind is not new but it feels new, and therein lies the charm of this book. Having read reviews that claim editing faults I can say quite definitely that the faults may be there but are lost among the flavours of originality that surfaces throughout the reading of this sassy and too often insightful story. Valerie despite some of her thoughts and behaviours is engaging and naively human, Jack interesting until Lucas comes along and hots Jack into oblivion, at least in my heart. The sexual tension is intense but underneath there is a question of love and whether or not this love will be acknowledged is the mystery that Caroline Hanson has bound us to find out. The next book has been bought and read even as this goes to print. More from you, Miss H would be delightful.

I very much liked this book. I did not enjoy the short story about werewolves same author, so I was very cautious about this book.
I accidentally bought this via Kindle yesterday. Clicked the wrong button. So, after a big sigh, I decided to start reading. I am very happy I did. I finished in one day, and plan on buying the remainder of the series.
*Spoilers from this point on!*
Valerie Dearborn is an empath, and does not know it. Her father Nate, and his young handsome partner Jack are vampire hunters. Valerie's mother (an empath) was drunk to death by a vampire when she was young. Jake's parents were killed by a vicious vampire named Marion. Marion "loves" children and kills their parents to take the children. She ultimately tires of them and drinks them to death. The beginning of the story sets the stage for Valerie's life.
In her late teens, Valerie is forced to go on a vampire hunt with her father and Jack. They leave her at the car, and lo and behold a confrontation occurs whereas King of the Vampires Lucas saves her from a vampire. Lucas knows of Valerie because the vampire who drank her mother returned to see Lucas in Prague, and was high as a kite on empath blood.

enough said...I hope

I plan on buying the remainder of the series via Kindle. I highly recommend you purchase the three book set (nearly a five dollar savings) via Kindle format and read. Can't go wrong with a heroine named Valerie! Thanks to the author for a great read.

You want me to feel more? You want a declaration? Love? I can tell you that I have wanted nothing more than you for hundreds upon hundreds of years, that I will kill anyone for you, anyone you can name. In me you have a shield, could have a lover, a friend and a confidant. &quote;
