+ + +
In 19th Century London, vampires live alongside the uppercrust members of Society...

Even after centuries of lust, hedonism, and women, Voss, the Viscount Dewhurst, rarely finds himself bored. As a member of the Dracule, he is a rogue of the first order, a man who loves nothing more than a warm woman, excellent vintage, and even a puzzling challenge to keep his mind active.

But when one of his seemingly harmless manipulations sets him on the path to seduce the beautiful Miss Angelica Woodmore, things become a little less simple...a lot more passionate...and definitely more complicated.

And when the most evil vampire of the Dracule puts Angelica in his sights, Voss will have to risk everything to save her...and possibly his own soul.

Once again, Colleen Gleason has written a story that drew me in from the first chapter and kept me reading to the last page. It has the romance, suspense, and action all taking place in the 19th century. I didn’t want to put it down once I started reading it as the story just draws you in. Colleen’s descriptions of the characters, clothing, time period are just enough that it sets the story up; unlike some authors that give you too much detail. The main character, Voss has been a vampire for a long time and is quite the character. You could say he is handsome, charming but arrogant and has a way with the women. When Voss meets Angelica, he falls for her but doesn’t want to admit it. You can feel the sparks between Voss and Angelica; however he tries to protect her from himself. Her faith in him actually helps him to become a better person. I am so looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Mystery, action, romance. Everything I could have ever wanted in a vampire story and more I found in Dark Rogue. I kept biting my nails and pulling my hair almost until the end because it wasn’t until then that ALL questions are answered. And then the hero, well, if you want to call him that, is almost an anti-hero. But it's that attitude of his and his own self-acceptance what makes him so attractive; his unapologetic behavior is what makes him such a great rogue. In general, the beauty of this book is the transformation, not only of one character but of the many that one single revelation causes and how their lives become affected by it. It’s very hard indeed, at least for me, to find that author that knows how to weave a good paranormal world inside the very pompous Victorian era and I’m happy to I have found that author in Colleen Gleason. 4.5 stars.

I received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, as part of an on-line Read A-Long. I really enjoy Vampire Fiction, and as such, recognize there are about as many different mythos out there as books themselves, and I find something enjoyable about each one. This one was unique to me. This was my first Colleen Gleason book to read, and Dark Rogue, or The Vampire Voss, however you remember the title, is wonderful fun. First, the books are set in the Regency Period of London (with excursions to neighboring environs). And second, these Vampires, or Draculia, as they are called, were created by Lucifer to be his Earthly Army. And if you are not bad enough to satisfy Lucifer, he can cause you pain! Again, unique! As I said, I read it as an on-line group doing a Read A-Long, so only read a few chapters a week, WHICH WAS THE HARDEST PART! I so did not want to put the book down each week, yet I didn't want to risk spoilers in the discussion. Bottom line, this is a new (at least to me) take on the standard Vampire mythos, unique, with the added history element, and I absolutely encourage you to read it! I will be treating myself to the next 2 books in the series soon.

Regency vampires are so sexy! Voss, Lord Dewhurst, has enjoyed all the benefits of immortality as a vampire for 148 years. He's taken his pleasure from wine, women, and whatever nefarious dealings might have come along. He has especially enjoyed trading in secrets and finding out the weaknesses of the other members of the Dracule. At first, he just wants to seduce Angelica Woodmore to get the information she can provide, but when she doesn't immediately fall under his thrall, Voss finds Angelica to be just the sort of puzzle he craves. When her life is in danger, he finds it necessary to fight against other members of the Dracule, which doesn't please Lucifer at all. Voss has to decide if he can go against his nature to protect Angelica, and she must decide if she can trust her heart to a vampire. There is a lot of action, and the romantic buildup is great. I enjoyed the setup for this world of vampires among the nobility of Europe. This book really complements the second book in the series, The Vampire Dimitri, which takes place at the same time.

The decadence of the Regency period shines through in this book. The descriptions of the places and people are very good,  they take you there. The clothing sounds sumptuous. Things that our heroine thought were just fantasy or old wives tales to scare young children, are more true than she ever believed. One other thing exists that she was sure was not meant for her, love.  Our hero is a rake of the first order, never caring about anyone or anything except what he could gain from them. Men with  money he didn't need, Draculia with secrets he could use, women for all the things a rakish man would like from a woman, not to leave out the blood that keeps him alive. But he has a “Devil of a time” when he meets Angelica Woodmoore. He is drawn to her from the start even though he won't admit it to himself. Angelica’s sister Maia, betrothed and comfortable in her loves consistency, has confidence. Her brother has gone missing and  the man he has instilled their safety to is a dark, non communicative man. There is a mystery here, but can they unravel it before  The darkest Draculia kidnap Angelica and her sister Maia? This is regency romance at it's best with the wonderful addition of a touch of paranormal. If you liked this book, Please check out the rest of the series in The Draculia Vampire Trilogy. And also The Gardella Vampire Chronicles. You will not be sorry you did!

I love stories set in regency times, and I love vampire stories, and Colleen melds the two genres together perfectly. It's hard to write about this book without giving spoilers, but suffice to say that there are two clans of Vampires, the good and the evil. Voss is one of the 'good' vampires, and he falls for a human female who is under the protection of his brother. The story revolves around keeping her and her sisters safe, and also about Voss and his constant battle with the control that satan has over him because of a large marking on his shoulder and back which gives him extreme pain when he tries to battle his evil side. His struggle is very moving, and what happens to him towards the end of the story is truly unique! I look forward to reading the next book in the series where we hear about Voss's brother Dimitri's story.
