Book Review - My Viking Vampire by Krystal Shannan

My Viking Vampire 
(Sanctuary, Texas #1)
by Krystal Shannan
Published 2014
298 Pages

I am so excited about this new series! Krystal Shannan has a way with paranormal romance, as demonstrated in her other series, including the shape-shifting world of The Vegas Mates. My Viking Vampire does not disappoint! It offers up an enticing new cast of supernatural creatures, including vampires, pixies, djinn, and more! 

The enchanting world imagined by the author is brought to life with colorful descriptives, and plenty of steamy romance! And as we've come to expect from the author, clever quips are interwoven throughout the dialogue, resulting in a fun and captivating tale that will keep you hooked till the end. This is definitely one of my new favorites!

Bailey Ross lives in a futuristic Earth, where supernatural creatures -- referred to as 'Others' -- are known and feared, and where governments have responded to the threat by locking down borders to control the flow of Others and humans alike. Black markets thrive, and woman are treated as a commodity. Books are banned, and what little information is known about the Others is carefully guarded by the government control agents.

Now on the run from her abusive ex-boyfriend, Bailey finds herself in a bus terminal in Dallas with no money, no place to run... and two supernatural creatures stalking her. One is a loathsome djinn, with the power to teleport; while the other is a vampire... a powerful, fearsome, and surprisingly handsome vampire. But as Bailey knows all too well, looks can be deceiving.

Erick Thorson, a centuries-old vampire, is drawn to Bailey. She reminds him of someone from his past. So, when he spies his sworn enemy, Darius -- a djinn, with whom he's been battling for centuries -- stalking Bailey, he takes matters into his own hands. He knows there are risks in taking her to the secretive town of Sanctuary, Texas, but he needs to get her away from Darius. And so, with the offer of a bus ticket, and a vow to keep her safe from the djinn, Bailey accepts Erick's offer to leave Dallas for Sanctuary. And soon they are on their way.

Bailey considers the very real possibility that Erick might have a hidden agenda. Alas, he has just saved her life, and her options are limited. So, pushing past her fears, she makes the trip, and is pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome she receives in Sanctuary. The town seems to have the potential to earn its name. But while she is drawn to her handsome rescuer and the allure of safety provided by the town, dangers are lurking. And soon she discovers there are secrets behind the castle walls... walls that are made to keep some out, and others in.

A very sexy tale, full of romance! This is a world that, once you enter, you won't want to leave. It wraps up nicely, but leaves plenty of room for more! This is a must read for fans of paranormal romance, who also enjoy a little kink. 
I'm looking forward to the next installment, and seeing where the author will take us. The only downside will be having to wait until it's released!
