Blurb:

How hard can it be?

That was the question rolling around Larissa Mason’s mind just before she asked Hollis Hudson to be her fake boyfriend.

It was only supposed to be for five minutes, after all.

Granted, that was also before she felt his hand on the small of her back as he charmed the heck out of her family.

She hadn’t heard his laugh yet either.

And it was definitely before she saw the football god shirtless. Otherwise, she would’ve had an idea of just how hard some things could be.

It turns out that pretending to be in love with a crazily handsome, somewhat enigmatic, and absolutely unforgettable tight end (that has an amazing tight end) is easy.

Reminding herself that just because opposites attract doesn’t mean they’re forever is much harder.

What they have isn’t love—it’s a relationship pact. Right?

MAN IN LOVE (Man in Charge Duet #2) by Laurelin Paige

Blurb


Scott Sebastian is a liar.

Fitting, since I’m a liar too.

Yet there’s no place for me in his glittering world of half-truths.

With all our secrets in the open, I should stop trying. What I’ve learned should send me running far away. I can’t keep pining for a man in love if I’m not the woman he’s in love with.

But it’s not that easy to escape the Sebastians. I already knew they owned this city.

Now I’ll find out if they also own their son.

MY REVIEW

Sinfully delicious! The Man in Charge duet kept me hooked throughout.

“I’d only seen the trailer for Scott Sebastian, but I was already sure I’d love the whole film.”

➵ Heroine : Terese Turani. Assistant to the owner of Conscience Connect, who would love nothing more than to be able to partner worthy charities with companies who are willing to sponsor them. She was a passionate and loyal friend who loved life. It was impossible not to love her.

➵ Hero : Scott Sebastian. Billionaire. VP of image at Sebastian Industrial Corporation. Sexy, domineering player. He’s never known love, didn’t think he would be capable of it or want it, but now that he’s found it he’ll have to make a huge sacrifice to hold on to it.

➵ Plot/Pace : Man In Love continues where Man in Charge left off. Tessa has just found out the true price of being a Sebastian. Months before meeting her, Scott had made an agreement with his father which now makes his and Tessa’s relationship seem impossible. How much are they willing to sacrifice for love? Can they find a way to be together?

Boyfriend. What kind of word is that? Manfriend seems more appropriate […] Whatever you call me, I just want to be yours.”

➵ Sexiness : This duet is filled under contemporary romance, but I’d add an Erotic subgenre to it because wow does it have some sizzling hot romance scenes.

“Like heavy magnets with no choice but to slam together at every possible point. It made me feel dizzy and twisted inside. Made me feel twisted with her, not just literally as our arms and legs got tangled, but on another level. Spiritual or emotional.”

➵ Feels : Loved Scott’s character growth. It made me smile and swoon.

➵ Facts: Man in Love is book 2 of the Man in Charge duet by author Laurelin Paige. Told from both points of view with a happy ending. Tropes: contemporary romance | erotic romance | billionaire romance.

* I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author via Candi Kane. The excerpts are from that copy. I am voluntarily reviewing this title. *

Then an opportunity comes along for us to snag the business deal of a lifetime.

The catch?

We need to pretend we’re married to pull off this high-stakes deal.

So the clever, charming man with secrets a mile deep becomes my temporary husband, as we travel around Europe. Soon, we fall into bed, tangled together like newlyweds who can’t keep their hands off each other.

But when I learn the dark secrets he’s been keeping, I doubt we can go back.

Because they change everything.

Make Me Yours by Melanie Harlow Release Blitz

Make Me Yours, an all-new laugh out loud rom com from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!

He’s my brother’s best friend.

The hot single dad next door.

And one accidental sext later, my massive crush on him is no longer a secret.

It’s my own damn fault. I’m thirty years old, for heaven’s sake. I’m a kindergarten teacher and a (reasonably) responsible adult. I should know better than to get tipsy and draft a fake text listing all the dirty things I wish Officer Cole Mitchell would do to me.

I wasn’t supposed to hit send.

He wasn’t supposed to see it.

And he definitely wasn’t supposed to text back telling me to go on . . .

Because after that, things escalate quickly.

Cole is everything I’ve ever wanted. He’s sexy and protective. A devoted father to his little girl. A dedicated cop the whole town adores. The kind of guy you can trust to keep his hands to himself, even when you’re desperately hoping he won’t.

I’m not the girl he thought he’d end up with, but after all this time, I might finally get the chance to say the words I’ve always dreamed of . . . make me yours.

My review

Make Me Yours is book #2 of the Bellamy Creek series by Melaine Harlow a USA Today Bestselling author who writes witty, fun, sexy and heartfelt romance novels.

Officer Cole Mitchell lost his wife after giving birth to his beautiful daughter nine years ago. He’s a caring father and a good cop and isn’t looking for a relationship, yet his sexy protectiveness and irresistible charm have been Cheyenne’s Achilles’ heel since she was twelve years old. No other man has ever compared.

When he was younger, Cole swore to his best friend he’d stay away from his little sister. But Cheyenne Dempsey is all grown up now and not only does she adore his daughter, the sweet, vivacious kindergarten teacher is all sorts of tempting. Surely there was a statute of limitations? Especially after she sends him a sexy text that holds all sorts of interesting possibilities.

Cole and Cheyenne are wonderful together, with great chemistry and a relationship with history that grows into a beautiful romance.

About Melanie

USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like Schitt’s Creek, Homeland, and Fleabag. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.

Melanie is the author of the CLOVERLEIGH FARMS series, the ONE & ONLY series, AFTER WE FALL series, the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.

MY REVIEW

Helena Hunting delivers an emotional love story that feels reminiscent of her Clipped Wings series. Little Lies brings out soul-searing angst with heart melting swoon. It’s definitely one of my 2020 favorites!

➵ Heroine : after a traumatic experience at age six, Lavender Waters (Alex and Violet Waters’ youngest daughter, PUCKED and FOREVER PUCKED couple origin) her older brother’s best friend becomes her safe harbor, the person who understands her anxiety and helps calm her. Their friendship grows but then is forcefully broken, when he moves away with his family during their teens, though the bond that had been there from the beginning never truly disappeared.

➵ Hero : Kodiak Bowman (Rook and Lainey Bowman’s son, A LIE FOR A LIE couple origin) is brilliant both academically and in the hockey rink, but has had his own set of anxiety issues from a young age. After many years of not seeing the object of his obsession, and knowing he needed to protect her from him, he lies and pushes her away. Now that she’s in college and living just a couple of houses away, he needs to confront the warring emotions between wanting her and wanting to keep her safe. I felt so much for them both, but especially for Kody because he seems to carry the weight of the world on his very young shoulders.

“I want to save her from her demons, and me from mine. But they always catch up. No matter how hard we try to outrunthem.”

➵ Plot/Pace : The pace was perfect. The harrowing prologue with Lavender at age 6 set the stage and the story moves forward between present time and back to key moments in both Lavender and Kody’s past. They’ve both grown up, but they need to face the Little Lies that hung between them. I loved both their character development, especially Lavender who I grew into her own in a wonderful way.

“I revere Lavender because she’s all the things I’m not. She’s sensitive and aware, kind and sweet, and she’s soft and compassionate. But she’s also a warrior.” ~Kodiak age 13

➵ Sexiness : Oh boy, my e-reader just about burst into flames with all their pent up lust and love.

➵ Feels : The emotions felt raw, the torment, the passion, the adoration and friendship. Everything felt multiplied. There was so much angst, followed but an incredible deep seated love and swoon. I loved every second of it.

➵ Other noteworthy comments : Pucked fans will be THRILLED to have cameos of their favorite couples, but ECSTATIC with the grown up Pucked kids! I loved Lavender’s brothers, BJ, Lacey and Lovey and hope to read ALL of their stories.

➵ Facts: Little Lies is a standalone new adult romance by author H. Hunting. Written if first person and told from both points of view with a happy ending. Other tropes: friends to lovers | enemies to lovers | college romance | sports romance.

About Helena Hunting

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of PUCKED, Helena Hunting lives on the outskirts of Toronto with her incredibly tolerant family and two moderately intolerant cats. She writes contemporary romance ranging from new adult angst to romantic sports comedy.

Book Blogger Responsibilities

What did I get myself into? I’ll write the details about the book that prompted me to post this at the end but first I’d like to comment about blogger responsibilities.

I’d like to think I practice what I preach to my kids:

I am responsible for my own actions and decisions


As a book reviewer I solemnly swear that no author has ever forced me to read and review their book. I choose the books I sign up to receive an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) of and therefore review. Knowing how important book reviews are to authors, especially indie authors and what an honor it is to get a free advance copy of their work, I feel it is my responsibility as a blogger to adhere by the following cannon:

  • Likes and dislikes.

Find out what genre and sub-genre the book is about. If I LOVE a particular author but know that their next release belongs to a genre I might dislike or know I’m not a fan of, it pains me but I skip that particular book. How do I find out about a book’s genre? If the book is up for pre-order, the eRetailer will most likely list its main categories along with the book’s summary. If this is not enough, an email to the promo company or even the author can help. I’ve reached out directly to authors who have very kindly and patiently responded my questions and assuaged my worries.

  • Time. It’s precious and not renewable.

Make sure I have enough time to read and review a book. Of course sometimes life gets in the way and even the best laid out plans can go wrong. But if I know it takes me an average of 2 days to read a book and 1 day to let it simmer and review, I should plan on only reading 2-3 books per week or 10 books per month. And in this vein, I use my Google Calendar to schedule when my reviews are due. Also, if possible I try to find out when a particular ARC will be sent. That way I can organize my time and enjoy a book without the stress of having a time constraint looming over me.

  • Be kind and considerate.

If you stalk my Goodreads account, you’ll notice I have a pretty high rating average (4.40 stars). This is mainly because I try to follow rule #1. So I pick writers and books I’m pretty certain I’ll like and even love. But once in a while BAM! I have trouble finishing a story and consequently have to give an average (3 stars) or below rating. Reviews should always be honest, yes. They should take into account the genre your reading (don’t expect lots of steam in a cozy mystery or few sexy times in an erotic romance). But I feel they should be written with respect, kindness and consideration, and include constructive criticism that will help the author improve their writing. I also always wait a few days after the book’s release to post my reviews when they’re 3 or less stars.

  • Timing is everything.

And speaking of when to post a review. If you’ve followed rules 1 & 2, there should be no reason to not POST ON RELEASE DAY. Authors, especially indie authors rely on reviews to help with their sales. And honestly, most of my absolute FAVORITE authors are indie so supporting them to me is a MUST.

  • To spoil or not to spoil?

I can personally deal with spoilers, no problem. BUT I know a lot of people who HATE them. So out of respect for my fellow readers, I don’t include spoilers in my reviews. I once got a really polite email from a PA asking me to omit the name of the heroine because it was a spoiler! Oops, my bad!! If a reader needs to know about a particular plot point or safety regarding triggers, I’m happy to comment via PM. I’m sure other bloggers would do the same.

Sooo, what am I currently reading? I just finished reading Mafia Casanova by M. Robinson and Rachel Van Dyken. It’s my first mafia romance and because I’ve read over two dozen of RVD’s books and loved them all I did not hesitate to sign up for this one. Did you catch that? I did NOT HESITATE, hence I skipped rule #1!!

But because Rachel didn’t know call me up and make me read this book (although I wish she would because she’s an awesome writer and I would totally go fan girl on her and be honored to be in her always ARC list) I kept an open mind, read a couple of reviews that were already posted and prepared to read a bad boy falling in love.

I’ll let the story sit for a bit and write a review in a bit, but to summarize. I felt for him. For her. For their situation. I loved that they could find love. I was hooked. I was consumed by their story and was left wanting more at the end. Which is my definition of a job well done.

Thanks for your time all!

Xoxo

Excerpt:

“And what’s it going to take for you to have a clear mind?”

He inhales deeply, then licks his lips. “Maybe it’s going to take going through the distraction, rather than ignoring it.”

Ohhhh.

Keep talking. I am listening.

“And how would you like to do that?” I let him lay it out. He’s the one with the bigger risks, the one with the job worries.

He gives a casual, sexy shrug. “Maybe we need to deal with it.”

In the bedroom. Please say in the bedroom.

“How?”

“Get it out of our systems.”

And there it is. The recipe for my favorite kind of activity.

“Get it out of our systems . . . tonight?” I ask, waiting on a tightrope for the answer.

“One time only. Then I can think.”

My chest heats, and my lips form the only answer in my universe. “Far be it from me to stand in the way of your logic.”

 

 

 

 

Blurb:

A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?

Yeah, it never ends well.

Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.

Especially since we’re opposites.

But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense.

Until one night in a limo when we combust.

One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.

Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I’ll lose everything.

But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

No matter the cost.

For Calliope James it didn’t only leave a mark, it tore out her heart and left it bleeding on the ground.

He was her best friend.

Her first kiss.

Her everything.

Until one day, he wasn’t.

Zachary Messiah will never forget the girl with eyes the color of whiskey. But he’s not that boy anymore.

Cold.

Cruel.

He’s devoid of emotion.

Their paths were never supposed to cross again. But love doesn’t always play by the rules.

Now he’s the King of Steinbeck University and she’s the new girl on campus … and the pasts they have fought so hard to bury are about to collide.

Only this time, they might not survive the fallout.

 

 

 

 

About the Author:

Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

Blurb:

“Did you have relations with my brother . . .”

Good question.

I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother.

My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.

But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.

Coerced into participating in the teacher’s badminton league.

And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time.

Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.

Prologue:

**GREER**

“Before we get started, I’ve been told I need to ask you a question.” Stella sits cross-legged in front of me, a nervous look on her face, water in hand.

“Oh?” I ask, trying to act casual as I bring my glass of red wine to my lips. I have a scary inkling what this might be about.

She glances over at Coraline and winces. “Uh, I feel weird asking.”

Oh God . . . I was right.

Shifting, I say, “You know, we don’t have to—”

“Then why bring it up if you’re not going to propose your query?” Keiko asks impatiently while pushing her green-rimmed glasses up on her nose. “You know the frequency of these meetings is dependent upon staying within the comprehensive itinerary I composed during my lunchbreak.”

“Cool your bloomers, Keeks,” Coraline says while taking a large sip from her wine glass. “I want to know what’s making Stella so fidgety.”

The four founding members of the Ladies in Heat Book Club—aka my mismatched collection of friends—each bring diverse and unique character traits to our group.

Keiko “Keeks” Seymour—resident AP chemistry teacher at Forest Heights High School. Her social etiquette is lacking, her intelligence is off the charts, and she’d rather play with beakers than penises. She wasn’t thrilled about the book club name and made a noble attempt to explain why her suggestion, the Austen Empowerment Collaborative, was far more credible. Majority ruled, she lost.

Stella Garcia—Spanish teacher at Forest Heights and my co-coach. Currently single, makes the best tamales I’ve ever had, and is one stamp away from getting a free donut at Frankie Donuts. Can be shy at times, but when it comes to her family and friends, she doesn’t take shit from anyone. Loyal to the core, one of the reasons I adore her.

Coraline “Cora” Turner—recent divorcée and living with her brother, Arlo. Jobless at the moment and couldn’t care less about it since both she and Arlo have enough inheritance to last them a lifetime. Often annoyed by her older brother or annoying him, doesn’t partake in Twitter—says it’s a filthy pool of opinions, and is the first to offer up a bottle of wine.

Then there’s me . . .

Greer Gibson—twenty-four-year-old fresh to the teaching scene as Forest Heights’s new English teacher and women’s volleyball coach. I love running, have a penchant for a man in a cardigan, and can get a little noisy in the classroom while teaching. I currently share a classroom wall with Arlo Turner, Forest Heights most prestigious English teacher, and might have lost my underwear—

“Out with it, Stella,” Cora says, snapping at her.

“Please, so we can proceed,” Keeks says, straightening her notepad on her lap.

Stella looks me in the eyes and says, “Brock wants to know if there’s anything going on between you and Turner. Apparently, Turner won’t say a thing, but Brock thinks there’s some strong sexual tension building.”

Cora whips her head to me, her eyes wide. “Are you getting it on with my brother?”

Finger pointed in the air, Keeks leans in and says, “The proper term amongst company would be coitus.”

Rolling her eyes, Cora asks, “Did you have coitus with my brother?”

“You could also say intercourse if that amuses your jargon more,” Keeks adds. “Or copulating would be sufficient. But if you are inclined toward romantic terminology, since we are in the presence of the book club, you could say lovemaking or performing intimate acts. Although, given the circumstances of when coitus took place—in the work environment—I would deduce that your actions were performed carnally rather than with the interest of developing a devoted accord.”

“Good God, Keeks,” Cora says, irritated. “Who cares what it’s called? We just want to know if it happened.” Cora looks me in the eyes. “Did it?”

Did it . . .

Good question.

I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance when I was hired at Forest Heights, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met.

My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun, bring the volleyball team to a state championship, and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.

But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.

Infiltrate the teachers’ athletic league.

And had passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education, decorum, and student-teacher friendships.

Not to mention I’ve lost my panties to him in my dreams more than I care to admit.

Why did this all happen?

Simple.

The man dresses in a cardigan, that’s how.

Arlo Turner. The bane of my existence, annoyance to my sanity, and the only man who’s ever made me want to spread my legs in a classroom.

He’s torn down my metaphorical walls, strapped on a cottony cardigan—pushed up the sleeves—and has driven me to the brink of insanity, so now whenever I hear the mention of his name, my legs automatically spread, and my heartrate picks up.

Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason my star athlete is struggling to keep her grades up.

He’s the reason I tend to avoid the teacher breakroom.

And he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.

MY REVIEW

This witty Austen-esque romp by Meghan Quinn had me bewitched. Utterly bewitched.

➵ Heroine : Greer Gibson wants to make a difference through her students and is excited about her first job as both an English teacher and a volleyball coach at the most prestigious public school in the country. She never imagined she’d have to deal with a man whose stuck-up attitude makes her hate him while his elusive charm and alpha tendencies provoke unbridled lust.

➵ Hero : Arlo Turner, a.k.a. Mr. Turns Me On, the cardigan wearing arrogant and wealthy English teacher, is cut from the same prejudice cloth as Mr. Darcy. When Greer Gibson is hired as the new English teacher despite his protests, he finds her enticing and irksome at the same time. He’s complex and I loved how his character developed and grew.

➵ Plot/Pace : The animosity between Greer and Arlo starts with their very different teaching methods and is stoked when Greer decides to prank him with the help of her new teacher friends, including Arlo’s alleged best friends Gunner and Romeo. The love-hate between them was incredibly hooking and entertaining, I didn’t want to put this book down for a second.

➵ Sexiness : Eventually the passionate arguments between Arlo and Greer turn the spark into a raging inferno. They were both under each other’s spell, but it was Arlo’s domineering attitude that was burning a hole in my eReader. But can Greer get past Arlo’s walls in order to get everything she wants and deserves?

➵ Feels : Oh boy, this book me laugh, and smile and swoon. I highlighted so many parts I wish I could share, from Greer’s friends Keiko, Stella and Coraline each with their own interesting personalities, to Arlo’s friends Gunner and Romeo who again are so charming that I hope everyone gets their own book, to the incredible relationship development between Greer and Arlo. I LOVED every single minute of this story.

➵ Facts: Date Me Like You Mean It is a standalone romantic comedy by author Meghan Quinn. Written if first person and told from both points of view with a happy ending. Other tropes: enemies to lovers, teacher romance, .

Blurb:

A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?

Yeah, it never ends well.

Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.

Especially since we’re opposites.

But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense.

Until one night in a limo when we combust.

One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.

Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I’ll lose everything.

But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

No matter the cost.

Date Me Like You Mean It by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next standalone romcom, Date Me Like You Mean It, is out now! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: Date Me Like You Mean It

Author: R.S. Grey

Genre: Rom-Com

About Dare Me Like You Mean It:

I’m good at hiding my feelings.

Having to pretend I’m not in love with my best friend?

Pfft. That’s child’s play.

Here’s how I do it: I avert my eyes when he walks out of his room, shirtless in all his toned glory. I squash the butterflies that fill my stomach every time he slowly unfurls a dimpled smile. And, most importantly, I keep an arsenal of “personal massagers” in my bedside drawer. Wink.

Not to brag, but Aiden Smith isn’t hard to resist if you’ve been doing it for as long as I have. In fact, we might have continued as best friends forever if not for the fact that I needed him to play the part of my fake boyfriend.

Date me like you mean it, I told him. Nudge nudge. C’mon, just go along with a little lie, help a girl out, and then we can all return to life as we know it.

Except he veered from the plan.

He crossed the line.

Flirting with me when no one else was around? Pinning me down and kissing me like that? Okay, how exactly is taking off my bra part of the ruse, Aiden?!

I’d ask him about it if I could, but well…things got ugly and we’re not best friends anymore.

In fact, we’re the exact opposite.

Now, I have to play nice even though I want to crush his heart in the palm of my hand.

Pretending not to love Aiden was the easy part.

Pretending not to hate him?

Well…I might need a little more practice.

(Yes, yes. Still a standalone. Yippy! You don’t have to go back and read all four books. But don’t ya kinda wanna?)

NEVER HIRE A HANDSOME VAMPIRE!

MIRIAM MURPHY loves being a librarian. It’s all she’s ever wanted—to eat, breathe, and sleep books. But when she hired Michael, a handsome college student, she had no idea he was a four-hundred-year-old vampire and that inviting him into her life would result in her becoming one too. But not before he knocked her up and broke her heart.

Now Miriam is a single mother, all alone in a new world with a new vampire body. And someone’s trying to kill her. Who? Why? She has no real enemies.

If only Michael would help. After all, he’s the vampire king now. And this is one mystery she can’t solve on her own.

NEVER FALL FOR A LIBRARIAN!

MICHAEL VANDERHORST knows he’s changed. He can no longer love or laugh or enjoy hot peppers like he used to. But being an unfeeling, ruthless vampire is what it takes to rule the deadliest bloodsuckers on the planet. It’s the only way to keep humankind safe.

Problem is, his enemies know the librarian and his daughter are special to him. They are his to protect, even if he’s incapable of feeling love.

But when danger comes knocking at Miriam’s library door, he must choose between solving the biggest mystery of his existence and the woman he swore to protect.

What’s a vampire king to do?
