Overview

From Joey W. Hill, the bestselling, award-winning author of the Vampire Queen and the Knights of the Boardroom series, comes this scorchingly hot novel of servant and master, vampire and vampire hunter. For fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and J.R.Ward.
Full servant. With his new title, Jacob must attend to Lady Lyssa's every need, venturing into a world of passion darker than he's ever known. As a vampire hunter he wasn't prepared to embrace a world where humans are sexual commodities, but he has adapted. Now he finds the integrity of his soul challenged as he serves his Mistress's needs as fully as he services her desires.

He loves her, though other servants warn against giving her his soul. Everyone knows that Vampires have no regard for humans, so why would a Vampiress bother treating a mere sex toy with respect? But Jacob knows a human servant is far more than that. His Mistress needs a warrior, a friend and a lover. A man who will serve her in all ways, even if he has to betray the priceless treasure of her love.

    Since Jacob Green was chosen by his predecessor Thomas to replace him when the older man knew he was dying, he has become THE VAMPIRE QUEEN'S SERVANT. Jacob tries to be at least Thomas¿ equal but he struggles with the way his employer and her species treat humans as expendable. He wants much more as he has fallen in love with her Jacob is willing to give her his heart and soul to keep her safe.---------------- Lyssa knew from the first time she met Jacob he was different than all the mortals who have served her for almost a millennium as he is an alpha man not a submissive male. He makes her feel so much better than anyone ever has before. She even thinks she may love him, but vampires can live forever with superb health while humans rarely make a century and become frail as the decades pass. Lyssa knows what Jacob wants and offers her, but she fears touching his soul will allow him top touch hers and everyone knows that vampires are soulless.------------------- Vampire romance fans will take immense delight with this heated sequel that makes the supernatural seem natural especially in the boudoir. The story line is driven by the Lady and her servant who represent the social order in which bloodsuckers use humans as consumable supplies (food and otherwise). The lead couple¿s attraction grows with Jacob offering her his soul and Lyssa fearing to accept it. Fans of erotic romantic fantasy will relish THE MARK OF THE VAMPIRE QUEEN and look forward to Joey Hill¿s next entry in what is turning a strong saga.-------------- Harriet Klausner

    HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!

    The second book in this series, The Mark of the Vampire Queen, Lady Lyssa is beginning to really feel the effects the Delilah virus. She is also developing an emotional crutch in Jacob. She has fallen for the human. She is trying to push Jacob away but every time she hurts his feelings, she feels so bad that she ends up going to extremes to comfort him. Only making it harder not to fall for him.
    When Jacob takes down a human like a vampire mate would for her for her annual kill, she finally decides that she can't help but love him. But how much is she willing to sacrifice for him?
    Arriving at the Vampire Council meeting means Jacob is going to have to be on his best behavior and act like a good servant. While being mindful of this he is also still very worried about his Lady. Without investigating too much he is still trying to find out if there has been a breakthrough with the Delilah virus or if there is some other discovery Lord Brian is bringing before the vampire council. But can Jacob hide the fact Lyssa is infected or will he ask too many questions and put not only his life but Lady Lyssa's in danger?
    What is Lady Lyssa willing to sacrifice in order to protect Jacob when things don't go quite to plan? Will she expose herself and let Jacob die or is her love for him too strong to let him just fade?

    I LOVED this book and I am going to give it a 5 out of 5 stars. I love that this isn't just some sleezy romance there is a great love story here, a story of sacrifice and heartbreak. A story of love and life. A story with so many ups and downs that you wonder where the story is going to go next. It is not a genre that will appeal to everyone but I loved it!

    Tried this series again.....STILL DIDN'T LIKE IT!

    OK, I hated the first book, but thought I would try again. The story and the vampires attitudes made more sense, but they still are awful, cruel and degrating.....ALL THE TIME! At least at the end Lisa (The Vampire Queen) shows some redreming qualities and does the right thing (for the human she's supposed to love) but otherwise why would any human freely choose to be with any of these vampires?

    I won't bother reading anymore.........

    This book was a continuation of the emotional journey between Lady Lyssa and Jacob. I liked this book even better than the first one and really enjoyed seeing the relationship between the two blossom.

    SEX. And more sex.  At the end of The Vampire Queen¿s Servant La

    SEX. And more sex.  At the end of The Vampire Queen’s Servant Lady Lyssa had given Jacob the third mark knowing that she was dying and that it would mean his death too.  With mortality staring her in the face Lady Lyssa is feeling things she has never felt before.  She has to attend the council meeting in hopes that she can shore up her legacy and she needs Jacob more than ever in her heart and in her bed. This book is important to the series as you meet several of the vampires featured in future books and events that take place in this book are referred to in future books.

    File this book under 'hot but weird'

    Let me first say that this whole "I'm leaving you for your own good" nonsense is getting old. Aside from that, I really enjoyed this book. That's an understatement - I loved this book. And it's not because the sex is super steamy, which it is. It's not because I have a thing for vampires, which I don't. And it's not because the story was original, though it is. No, I loved this book because it made my face ache. I was smiling, like a total moron, through more than one chapter. On top of that, I was crying my eyes out near the end. It is very rare for a book to elicit such strong emotions from me. A book may make me happy, it may make me sad, but I don't believe I've ever enjoyed a book the way I've enjoyed this one. From what I can gather, the next books in the series are not focused on Jacob and Lyssa, so I have no intention of reading them. I'd rather end the story as it is than continue reading about supporting characters. But I can tell you that, while I won't read them, the other books in this series will most likely be just as good as the 1st and 2nd books.

    Yes...YUM!

    Once again, Joey W. Hill has reinforced my conversion from a former anti-romance novel reader to one who completely enjoys and is nearly addicted to the sub-genre of vampire/supernatural/fantasy erotica.

    Ms. Hill's otherworldly story and lovers Jacob and Lady Lyssa enthrall, scintillate, and elicit a dreamy, sense of excitement, expectation, and longing that are unequaled.

    Whether you are a Dom or a Sub, a bit of both, or just a reader who appreciates well-written erotica with well-developed characters, this book will entrance you to the point that you may wish to hole-up somewhere private to read the entire series. YUM!

    WOW!

    First, I am not really a "romance" fan. They are usually a bit too full of floral flourishes and euphemisms for genitalia and sexual acts as well as cookie cutter romanticized heroes and heroines, for my taste. However, I do enjoy vampire erotica and this one is H-O-T; it fits the bill. I definitely will be ordering the second book in the Vampire Queen series, The Mark of the Vampire Queen.

    OKAY

    This book was okay. I didn't like the characters at all. I don't like how Lyssa treats Jacob or how any vampire treats human. It was gross and disgusting! However, the ending was somewhat touching. I did like it.

    not for me

    I tried reading this book but found the Vampire Queen to be cold, selfish and just plain cruel. I didn't finish the book and returned it to get my money back. I would not recommend this book if you are looking for characters with heart.

    If you liked the first book then you also enjoy this one. If you were disappointed with the first book and offended by its content then look elsewhere for your reading pleasure!

    Good Romance

    Even though this is an erotica book, the connection between the two main characters was really tight. You could feel the pull, the heartache. Sometimes even though I enjoy the erotica it just overwhelms the whole story, so this book actually got better when you got past some of those parts. Like towards the end it got so heartfelt I cried.
