Stop spoilibg the book for people i did read the comments and then i did not even have to read the book. Stop writing so much about the story and make your reviews shorter so people have the chance to read the book instead of looking in the reviews to "read" the book ok? Be fair to the people.

Fog And Fascination Alba Spencer thought her past in Romania and the dark magic that haunted it was behind her forever. She is one of the first female barristers now, safe in London. But London has its dark side, too. A man called the Ripper stalks the midnight streets. There are rumors that her hated stepmother has found her again, suggestions that the nightmares of her childhood are returning. And with them appears the cursed Gypsy boy she once loved, grown into a man more seductive and more terrifying than she ever could have dreamed… Dimitri Grigorescu has become a surgeon, a gentleman—and a vampire. The lusts that drive his body are scarcely under control, and even he does not truly know what he is capable of. To fight evil and confusion, Alba must rely only on her wits—and a desire that overwhelms her doubts… Review: I love retelling/re-imaginings of fairy tales and this one is a different take on Snow White (sorry no dwarfs) but we do get vampires instead, plus Jack the Ripper. I did manage to catch that this was a second book in a series and actually read the first book before this. For those who have read more of my reviews I tend to read books out of order all the time and not on purpose. Now, these are definitely stand alone books with the recurrence of the cursed Egyptian amulet and bracelet that ties these stories together. I enjoyed the story, it was entertaining. Some parts were a little cheesy but on the whole it was a good story. And the Author had me, I did not guess who Jack the Ripper would turn out to be until the very end. 3.5 Stars

I was able to get a copy of Snow White and the Vampire through Netgalley, and since I really enjoyed the first one Beauty and the Wolf, I was hoping I would get the same fun out of this upcoming release. Snow White and the Vampire is the second in the series, and is to be released mid December. Snow White and the Vampire, is a different setting than the first book. This story is about a young woman, who has come a long way from when she first fell in love in Romania. She is in London now, away from her step mother that desires her end, and she is the first female barrister, which is a huge accomplishment, and she is very good at her job and loves it. Then a man she once knew, a man she gave everything to, arrives at a birthday party, when she is about to be engaged to a sweet young man, who has no idea of her past. Dimitri, has also come along way, although in a different way than his secret love. Dimitri is a vampire, and a doctor after years of training. Dimitri was once a lowly boy, with no chance of winning Alba's heart due to his station. Now he is a gentleman, a surgeon, and devoted to Alba and has been searching for her for years. Now that he has found her he refuses to let go, despite the fact that he is a vampire, but Alba's stepmother is trying to kill her, and he must protect her, at all costs. This story was intense, and breathless, and full of suspense and passion. Snow White and the Vampire puts together two people that are so right for each other. They have a past, and even though some dark and dangerous events occurred, their love for each other is stronger than ever,despite the years they have been separated. In this story we see a involvement of a curse, a plot full of intrigue and danger, and a passionate love. The characters were delicious and captivates the reader. I couldn't help but fall in love with these two characters. Even though the story took a bit longer to get into, once I was fully immersed into the plot, I was succumbed to the magic of this authors storytelling. This story is a retelling of the Snow White fairy tale, with a few twists to the story that turns it into a sensual and potent read!! I recommend Snow White and the Vampire to anyone that loves a roller coaster of a ride packed full with adventure, magic, passion, and intensity. A story to remember!! LOVED EVERY THRILLING MOMENT!!

A superb paranormal romance with a Victorian England back drop! There is something about the foggy London streets and the mystery of Jack the Ripper that always grabs my attention. This book has that - and more. The heroine, Alba Spencer, is running from a dark past. The hero wants to find her to revive the love they had. But unfortunately he's become a vampire. This book is based on the Snow White fairy tale, but I liked how it also offered a dark mystery that complicates Dimitri and Alba's relationship. And the seven sisters replacing the seven dwarves were adorable! If you can guess the ending of this one, more power to you. A great read!

I never got into romance novels of any kind, but I read Beauty and the wolf, and so I had to check out this one too. Myles recycles the cursed amulet plot, and it will be the center of the next book as well... although I will be reading that one too.... I have to say that while my first impression of the recycled plot line/cursed amulet felt a little cheesy, I changed my mind once I got into the book. You have to realize, these are fairytales we've heard since we were children, so of course there are many similarities. However, Myles adds her own twist, so it can deviate and be its own. Just like the amulet, it's doomed to play out the same unless you do something about it. We find out how the amulet has traveled over time, and how its curse will be used. The characters then try to fight it and keep it from harming another. I have to say I liked the book and the characters, and I have to make a comment on the oh-so-steamy romance themes: oh my. You heard me. Oh my. However - this book did not have as many as the first, and they aren't sleazy scenes or anything like that. Over all, I recommend the book. You don't have to read the first one beforehand, but it will offer background on the amulet and just how dangerous it is. Before I ramble anymore - get the book; it's a fun, quick read, and though they tend to end a little fast, they're enjoyable.

'I received a free ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review' Alba faked her own death and left Romania because her Stepmother was out to kill her. So now she is living with a friend of her mothers and her daughters. She is trying to become the first female Barister. She has a wonderful Beau... But then she see's him. Dimitri. She doesn't recognize him as someone from her past at first as he is also going by a different name. When she does realize who he is she faints. Dimitri has always been in love with Alba. When he got turned into a Vampire he knew the Curse placed on him, Alba and Simona was coming true. He had to find Alba to keep her safe. As Alba has to deal with not only one curse but two and both of them are because of him. He knows that he should stay away from her because of what he is, but he can't. Not only has Dimitri found Alba but her Stepmother has also. There is a killer in the city that is targeting women. Unknown to all, the killers main fixation is Alba. Will Dimitri be able to save Alba from her Stepmother and the killer? I'm giving this book 3.5 Hearts. I thought that it was a good book. It didn't draw me in the way I would have liked it to. It was an interesting twist on the story of Snow White and I would recommend reading. 'Read and Reviewed by LSK Sweetheart Reviews'

Alba has started a new life in London. She left Romania years ago trying to escape her stepmother who wants her dead and to forget her lost childhood love. She has changed her name and thought everything was going good. In London however a man called the Ripper is killing people. Alba has to face her fears when she comes face to face with Dimitri. Dimitri is the gypsy she loved as a child and she thought dead. Now her step mother has found her as well. There is a curse and Alba seems to be at the center of it. She has to figure out who to trust and who not to and how to stop the curse. Her only chance may be Dimitri who is now a surgeon and a vampire. I really enjoy fairy tale retelling and paranormal books. I thought this sounded like a great mixture of the two. It was a good read. The plot is a good one. You have gypsies, an evil step mother, vampires, the Ripper and more. Alba is very confused at what is going on but she figures things out. While she might have given up she doesn't. Dimitri is scared of what he is and doesn't know what all he will do. He loves Alba and that has never stopped but at times he is afraid to be alone with her. They can't deny their love but are afraid of what may happen. There is a lot you learn as you read and it unravels as you turn the pages. This book is a good read but I didn't connect with it. I liked it as I read but not the I have to see what will happen next. If you like fairytale retelling you may enjoy this one

This was a cute book. It was a nice, new spin on an old theme. Young love is the first start to the story. Alba loves Dimitri who loves her back but then there is Simona who isn't happy being a third wheel. Alba also has a wicked step-mother who wants her dead. Ileana brings in an Egyptian curse and everyone has a reunion in London after 11years. Simona is still jealous. Alba and Dimitri still love each other. Ileana still wants to kill Alba and Dimitri is now a Vampire. If that's not enough here comes Jack the Ripper. As I don't give out spoilers you will have to read this story and find out the ending on your own. This is a good short type story to help you forget your problems!

This book was pretty different. I think it was fabulous. I finished it faster than I thought I would, so I don’t know if that is because it wasn’t that long, or I just got that caught up in the story that I didn’t notice. I started it in the morning & I was finished before dinner. I didn’t get anything done around my house, but that’s ok, I like to read more than I like to clean! There are obviously aspects of this book that go along with the Snow White fairy tale, as the title suggests. Instead of the 7 dwarves, Alba lives in a house full of redhead girls that are friends of her family. Her mother died when she was a baby, & her stepmother, is the stereotypical “evil stepmother” & Hell-bent on being the most beautiful woman around. She had the whole magic mirror thing going on as well. She is determined to kill Alba (whose name means Snow White in Romanian, her parents thought they were being clever) just as she killed Alba’s father. There are parallels with the story of Dracula as well, but with twists. Instead of the lead female being interested in medicine, she wants to be a lawyer. Her fiancée is also a lawyer instead of a journalist, as in Dracula. There is a very rich man that shows up in town (Dmitri) and sweeps the female lead, Alba, off her feet. Even as she resists, she has a hard time convincing herself that she should stay with Teddy, her fiancé. Dmitri is a doctor. There is also the whole vampire turning into bats & mist thing that doesn’t happen as often in modern vampire stories. There are some pretty steamy romantic scenes as well. I did laugh a few times because some of the phrases that Miles used to describe the girly bits were pretty corny & funny in my opinion. “damp petals” & “the bead hidden in her petals” are not phrases I have ever heard. There really are only so many ways you can describe sexual organs before it gets repetitive or corny. So she did what she had to do but it still made me crack up. She used the term “petal” to describe vagina 4 times, & used it once to describe Alba’s “petal soft cheek”, which once again cracked me up because at that point I automatically saw “vagina soft cheek” instead. If you are going to refer to a sex organ or act in a new way, please make sure you don’t use it in the same book referring to someone’s face. The cover is a little bit cheesy to me, but it doesn’t affect what’s on the inside of the book, so I can happily let that go. After I laugh at it for a bit bc it’s just that funny to me. He looks so serious, but he’s wearing a cape! With pants! And NO shirt! Sorry. I just had to get that out of my system. It’s definitely not the worst cover I’ve ever seen. Or even the worst I’ve seen this week. I would gladly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal romance with historical elements. There is plenty of conflict and angst to go along with the romance so it doesn’t sit there as just a romance book that happens to have a vampire in it. You should read it and see for yourself. When you are done, be sure to stop by and say hi and tell me what you thought of it! And remember, anytime you leave a review for an author on Goodreads or Amazon, & angel gets its wings! Oh wait, wrong movie. Um, ok, maybe no angel wings, but you can make an authors day letting them know you enjoyed their book.
