Henrik Magnusson is the Northern Warrior King, an elite albeit dwindling group of vampires warriors dedicated to protect the human race against the Soul Eaters. The Soul Eaters kill their pray by draining the blood of their victim until their heart stops beating, taking their souls in the process. Henrik has an even more dire situation, his immortal body is dying. Unable to find proffered blood to heal his immortal body, he's resigned to his fate. During a chance meeting at an art gallery, Henrik's fate changes in a way he never expected.

Kaira Sorensen is living her dream. Spending two years sacrificing every penny, her photographs are in an art exhibit she's worked hard to have displayed. Even as Kaira enjoys her new found success, she cannot escape her reality. Kaira has a rare blood cancer called Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. Her illness has reached the chronic stage and she doesn't have much hope. Little does she know that her meeting with a mysterious man will be a game changer.

Laura Kaye writing has a way of grabbing you from the beginning and pulling you in. The chemistry between Henrik and Kaira is unmistakeable. Laura is fantastic at drawing you into these two characters personalities in such a short novella.

Henrik isn't your typical vampire warrior. He is still a physical force to be reckoned with, but his health is waning. When he realizes Kaira is the key to his health, he initially refuses to take her. He's selfless and wants her to live. As Henrik and Kaira come together, he still refuses to force her to be with him. Ultimately the choice is hers, letting her come to her own decision. I love that about Henrik! Laura's vampires have heart.

Laura's heroines are some of my very favorites. Kaira's character captured me immediately. Undeterred by her serious illness, she manages to persevere and make her dreams come true. I love that she isn't some weak, immature girl. Even with her young age, she's resilient and doesn't let obstacles stand in her way of her goals. No shrinking violets here! When Kaira find herself in a dangerous situation with Henrik and his uncontrolled urges, she strides ahead to help when she's clearly at risk. She doesn't let her fears stop her and I love that about her.

The sex factor is definitely 5 out of 5. Laura's always great at the sexual build up. Your really invested in the character's relationship by the time the deed is done.

"His hips flew, driving his cock into her slick channel over and over. She clutched and scratched and fisted at his back, her muscles writhing and alive with arousal. What he wouldn't have given to slow down, explore, savor. But he couldn't. Not when he hadn't felt the intense rush of male satisfaction in so long. Too long.
Just another thing Kaira Sorensen had done for him. The list was long, and he'd only known her for twenty-four hours. Now, he didn't know how he'd go on without her. Heat and energy pooled low in his belly. He drank her down in slow sucks, and her blood tasted familiar and right, like coming home after a long time away."

Mah Lawd! Laura always gets my lady parts revved up. She knows just what to say to get us all hot and bothered, even when a blood lusty vampire wants to suck you dry!

Taken by the Vampire King is one of my favorite paranormal romance reads. I eagerly anticipate each upcoming release and always want more when I'm finished reading. I give it 5 out of 5 stars! Review by Dee McGee - Booze, Bookz, and Bad Boyz

    Good but rushed in the end

    It started really good, was loving it but rushed so much in the end that it left me disappointed. Just a few more pages, one or two more chapters, would have made all the difference. A pity.

    It WAS a good book, but

    It was a really good book till I got to the end. Or I should say the lack of the end. There was only about 3/4 of the story. It left you hanging. Not even a hint of another book. I was not happy and won't be buying anymore of this authors books.
