Overview

This is the first book in a hot, erotic vampire series.
Explicit -- hot!

In blood they will find destiny and the eternal bond of passion…

About the series:

The Wardens series begins with the three Brooks brothers, Evan (34), Aiden (32) and Taylor (28). They were early settlers of the town of Braunfels, Texas. When the town was haunted by a series of brutal animal attacks, that left a half-dozen townsmen murdered, the Brooks brothers took things into their own hands. Armed and ready for action, they set out into the wilderness, determined to find this animal and kill it. What they found was a female vampire who decided the brothers were scrumptious morsels, worth keeping around for a lifetime. She attacked the brothers and turned them to vampires.

No sooner did she turn them, though, than another vampire appeared and killed her. This vampire declared himself a “Warden” of the Vampire Council. Wardens uphold the rules of the Vampire race and report to the Council. Killing a human is punishable by death and their ‘Maker’ had broken that rule. The brothers were then taken to the Council, where they were taught how to survive without killing, how to mingle with humans as if one of them, and when to move on from a location so that they would not be suspected as vampires. Most importantly, they learned who their enemies were and how to defeat them.

In the end, the brothers were granted a financial dowry that had belonged to their Maker and given the choice of freedom, under Council rule, or an alternative—to become Wardens.

Now, the brothers travel together as Wardens, tracking outlaw vampires, killing them and protecting innocent humans. It is their eternal duty.

HOT VAMPIRE KISS
Book one, Evan’s story
The werewolf population is entrenched in a century long civil war, and now they are plagued by a virus that is turning wolves into killers. The Brooks brothers pursue one such rogue werewolf to Temple, Texas. It is in Temple that Evan encounters a beautiful nurse named Marissa who instantly melts the hundred years of ice running through his veins. When she is brutally attacked by the wolf, he breaks the rules of the Vampire Council and uses his blood to save her. Now, if he doesn’t kill the wolf by the next full moon, Marissa will become a killer wolf, and he will be sentenced to death.

Book 2, Aiden’s story — Hot Vampire Seduction -- out September 12th!
Book 3, Troy’s story — Hot Vampire Touch -- out in December of 2011

    Not Impressed

    Did they forget to edit before releasing?
    Did the Author write ALL the reviews?
    How are the Brothers from the 1500's , but repeatedly comment that they are only 100 years old?
    Could be a good story if the Author spent a little more time and it had more detail.
    Sorry but I have read better free stories :(

    Sizzling vamp tale!

    This was a great short read. I really enjoyed it. There was just enough to pull you in and keep you interested.

    Lots of hot passion. Lisa Renee Jones writes sexy, hunky vampires that you gotta have a taste of. Her characters are easy to fall in love with.

    I really enjoyed the idea of Evan falling for Marissa at first site.

    Evan is a honorable vampire warden, his mission is to find and kill a rogue werewolf. He is a sexy, dominate, lonely vampire. He doesn’t think he needs or wants a woman in his life until one night when that all changed.

    Marissa, a beautiful, witty, confidant but lonely and somewhat emotionally scarred. She has no one, no family. Deciding to become a nurse to help save life’s. One night after a hard day at work, she decides to go across the street to the bar. She doesn’t realize how much that decision is going to change her life.

    This novella doesn’t leave you wanting for anything except for the next book.

    The story line was very good and I’m looking forward to reading the next in this series.

    more from this reviewer

    Buy this book

    I'm a huge of Lisa Renee Jones and her Blaze books and when I was given the opportunity to read and write a review of her new erotic paranormal vampire series, I was in. I will admit that paranormal is not one of the genres that is a must read for me. I felt like since Twilight came out, the pool became a bit shallow for me. Ms. Jones proves again that she is a voice to be heard in the paranormal world.

    The setting for the story is in my backyard. I knew everywhere Lisa was taking me in the story right down to the dump hotel. Sorry, not a spoiler but if you live in Texas, you will understand. This is the first book in a series about a trio of brothers that were turned during a vampire raid and were made wardens of the vampire world. Lisa has built a vampire world that makes sense to this reader and doesn't muck it up with anything fancy that will make you scratch your head and go what did she just say? Evan and Marissa became a part of me from the time they met and have stayed with me long after I closed my Nook. The siblings are much like any other siblings; protective, bossy, loving and most of all loyal to each other. You get a little bit of Troy's backstory in this book but it only enhances Evan and Marissa's story. Marissa doesn't even begin to comprehend what is happening to her except that she wants, I mean needs Evan. Their story starts off hot but ends rather sweetly. I applaud Ms. Jones for the somewhat of a cliffhanger in the end but don't worry, there is a HEA.

    I would highly recommend Hot Vampire Kiss for anyone new to the genre that likes to super spicy hot and wants to really care about the characters that they are reading about. Plus, come on...the setting is Texas. What's not to like about that?

    Great Read

    *Clapping hands*


    Lets give a round of applause to Ms. Lisa Renee Jones on this fabulous book about vampires, werewolves, love, lust, and sacrifice. This is a fast, hot read that kept me hooked the whole way through.


    When Evan takes a job at a local tavern in order to gain information about a werewolf, he never realized that his life is going to change drastically. He notices Marissa right away and instantly knows he is gonna get to know her better. He realizes that unintentionally she has put herself right in a killers path and vows to protect her no matter what. Marissa is instantly attracted to Evan and after a night of drinks allows him to give her a ride home. Little does she know, this night is gonna be a tuning point in her life and she will never be the same again.


    The chemistry between Evan and Marissa is explosive right from the beginning. The sex is hot and often. The passion is intense. Evan is a very protective, alpha male. Marissa is a strong female that I really liked. She didn't break down when she was informed about her situation but she also didn't take it lighly either. She was obviously upset, rightfully so, but she took it in stride. This story really did flow nicely with no real jumpy moments. I kept looking at my percentage meter, thinking to myself, is this going to be solved before the book is done? Well, it is, which shows that Ms Jones keeps you on the edge of your seat right up until the last pages of the book. This book left me wanting more. I cannot wait for the others in the series to be released.
