The Dark Vampire (Last True Vampire Series #3) by Kate Baxter


Jenner is a newly turned vampire who stalks the night like a wild beast of prey, hunting and feeding his appetites with a string of willing women…and always wanting more. Nothing can satisfy the aching hunger that burns inside him—until he crosses paths with a beautiful, innocent vampire who sets his soul on fire.

Bria has never been able to escape the confines of her uncle’s home. But when the smolderingly sexy Jenner saves her—and promises to be her bodyguard—Bria is brought to a dark world of dangerous, insatiable desire. But once they feed upon each other, they expose themselves to an evil that they never saw coming…and now there’s no turning back. Will they divide and conquer—or stay together and lose it all to lust?

Terrific read. Please disregard the two previous nonsense reviews. Don't you just hate it when you try to refer to the 'stars' to make a decision about a book only to find out they were left by people who are just messing around..

4.5 Stars! I'm a sucker for a good vampire story and the best part is, this not only have vampires but also witches, shifters and a even fae. Jenner, the Hero, has my favorite characteristics. He's strong, fierce, cold and possessive. Bria, while having been shelter most of her life, has an innocence to her but she is also very strong and fierce. She was a great counterpart to Jenner. While I hated that the first half of the book Jenner kept Bria at arms length, once he let his guard down was also when the story really picked up. I have not read the first two books in the series, however, I loved all the characters and will definately go back and read them. ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Jenner is newly turned. His thirst is insatiable. He figures it’s only a matter of time before he’s put down. His next assignment is to guard a head Dhampire’s niece. After a three day blood and sex binge, she shows up at his king’s home, ready to begin his assignment. What he finds is someone he can’t hope to ever resist. This was a really good story. With the way it started, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it, or at least not like Jenner. I decided to stick with it and I’m glad I did. The more the author dug into the story, the more I felt for Jenner and Bria. They were both victims of circumstance and you really just want them to be happy in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the next one from this author. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

I will admit in the last few years I've been off my vampires. I just haven't been feeling them. I've stuck with a few old favorites but other then that, I haven't read anyone new in a very long time. That is until I found Kate Baxter. I was sent a review copy of her The Last True Vampire and just feel in love with this series. I found it well written with likable characters and ton of humor. We all know how much I love humor in my books. I need it! For me each book has gotten better and better. I'm really invested in this world. I want to know what happens next the second I finish the book I'm reading. You couldn't ask for a better story then that! You get to know Jenner slightly in the prior book. It's enough to want to know more. I was really intrigued by him. He had a huge chip on his shoulder and I wanted to know why? Oh boy did I learn out why! When I started The Dark Vampire I found myself right away falling for Jenner. Yes, he has a past, but I wasn't sure if I believed it totally. Sometimes we blow up things and make them bigger then they are. When I learn what happened his Jenner's past I was like...well! But I didn't think that one act defined him. There is so much more to him and you learn that in this book. Now Bria is a different story. I wanted to like like her but she acted like what I hate so much in heroines. She has a attribute of...I can take care of myself and I don't need anyone's help! More then once she mentions being able to take care of herself. I got tired of hearing it. As the book moves she does grow up some but never enough for me. I didn't hate her as a character, just felt she was immature. I even got why. That's why I gave her such a long rope. As a whole I enjoyed The Dark Vampire very much and even with a few issues found it to be such a good story. Now I have to sit here and wait for the next book to be out...I wish I knew when!!!!

Jenner has always been a loner. His lack of control made him and his family an outcast. He got a second chance when he was turned. Now he owes his loyalty to Mikhail. Now things change and his life gets more out of control when he is tethered to Bria Fairchild. She is his, but can he control himself? Dark Vampire is a story that pulled me in. Jenner is a fierce vampire who is fighting to be better. Bria is pure and innocent. He wants to protect her. She wants to be his equal not his prisoner. She has spent her life sheltered and locked away. Why won't he understand. As these two struggle to find common ground, Bria is the target for a dark witch's vengeance. The action and suspense are non-stop. The characters are well written and the setting is perfect. The glamour of Los Angeles is a nice contrast to the dark world of the Vampires. I enjoyed catching up with previous characters and seeing how they've fared. Kate Baxter has done an excellent job with multiple story lines. The plot is strong and filled with unexpected twists and turns. The ending leaves some unanswered questions so I'm anxious for the next book to see what happens. I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

What’s not to love about a dark, handsome, broody vampire? Whew he was something! This is the first time I have read this author and this is book three in the Last True Vampire series. You could read this as a standalone, as I was able to read it with very little question as to what was going on. I think I would have liked to have read the other two books prior, but it is not necessary, as each book deals with one particular couple. There is a good supporting cast of characters and good character development. There are good witches, dark magic performed by bad witches, shifters, faes, and forces trying to get rid of the paranormal beings. If you are a fan of J.R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood, which I am, then you will enjoy this book and I am sure the series. Bria was brought up being extremely sheltered for her own safety, but she craved the outside world and would sneak out to escape the confines of her coven, not knowing the dangers lurking. There is an uprising to eradicate the dhampir covens and Bria is near death and is brought to the Vampire King to be saved. Bria is turned from a dhampir to a vampire. This is where it really gets interesting!! Eric Jenner (goes by Jenner) is passionate in all things and the ultimate consumer of sex, blood, and danger. He does not trust himself because of unfortunate circumstances as a young dhampir dealing with bloodlust. He is made out to be out of control and he lives that role to the fullest. He is an enforcer for the King and upon his entrance to the Kings home, he is hit with bloodlust and the possessive “mine” feeling in his guts. He is immediately tethered to Bria as she is to him. They have a bond that is immediate and absolute. Jenner wants to consume Bria sexually and take blood from her vein, but he doesn’t trust himself with her, for he fears he will destroy her. Bria and Jenner have power struggles and growing pains as a couple. Their chemistry is off the charts! At times I was so angry at Jenner for not trusting his mate, but I could see it from his viewpoint as she was the love of his life and he needed to protect her at all costs. There are family dynamics involved, there is a bit of betrayal and lots of intrigue and secrets. Jenner grows to find his mate is just as much his equal and is stronger than he ever could have imagined. If you love a good love story, broody vampires and strong heroines then this is the book for you. ARC kindly provided by Netgalley for an honest review.

received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. 'The Dark Vampire ' by Kate Baxter is book three in the "Last True Vampire" series. I have not read the other books yet so for me this was a standalone book. This book is about Jenner a Vampire and Bria. Jenner has issue from his past that make him what he is today...which seems to use women for sex and blood. Never getting enough of both it would seem. Bria is a sheltered girl whose farther was a Vampire but her mother was human. They were both killed and her Uncle has been keeping her sheltered as much as he can from the world. There is a witch that is after Bria and her Uncle has been protecting her by hiding Bria. Bria has been slipping out from her Uncles place and on one of these trips she is attracted. Her Uncle takes her to some Vampires that he has just hired to help protect his niece. The Uncle ask them to turn her so she won't 'die'. Once Bria is turned she stays with the Vampires group for a few days before meeting Jenner. Once she and Jenner meet they find that they are 'mates'. Jenner can't fight this but is upset that Bria is such a nice girl and that he is afraid of hurting or killing her. So Jenner Tires to keep his distance..but it is impossible.

Centuries ago, the vampire race was almost destroyed. Now, salvation rests upon one - the last true vampire. For centuries, Jenner has been plagued by the shadows of his past. Now, a newly-turned vampire, he stalks the night like a wild predator, unable to satisfy his insatiable desires. Until a beautiful vampire sets his soul on fire... Bria is pure innocence, hidden her whole life from a merciless enemy determined to hunt her down. When things become perilous, safety comes in the form of a fearsome bodyguard - Jenner. One fateful night, Bria is saved by her vampire protector and a blazing connection is sparked. But surrendering to the powerful call of passion means breaking free from the shackles of their pasts. And with the war against the slayers more savage than ever, they must fight to survive. For the vampire race depends on it. Review: I really am bad about researching about books before I read them. This is book three in the series and though I was not too confused, I sure wish I would have found this series sooner! Now I need to go back and read the others. I love supernatural stories and this story sure fulfilled that love. It is a story about vampires, but I like that the author mixes in other supernatural beings. I was drawn in on page 1. Jenner is although, mysterious, broody and of course alpha male. He is also insecure and worried that he might hurt others then fate gives him a mate and things get really interesting. Bria, for her protection has been hidden away all of her life and then she is almost killed, made into a vampire and gets a mate. She is sheltered and innocent, but by no means a doormat and gives as good as she gets. Jenner and Bria with their opposites attract, were quite enjoyable to read. They both had their hands full and at times it made the story exciting, dramatic and sexy. I particularly liked the idea the author had about the tethering of the souls for mating vampires, I thought it was unique and gave the story an interesting twist on other vampire stories. I thought she did an excellent job creating a new vampire world/story. Now I have to find the time to go and read the other books in the series. 4Stars *Received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

5 - "A mated male is... Temperamental." Stars! I absolutely love this series, Kate Baxter brings another couple together through each book, whilst still running the bigger story concurrently. I must admit the space between books means it takes me a few chapters to refresh myself on the whole Sortiari situation, but it never takes long for me to get right back into the story. The Dark Vampire is Eric Jenner’s story, we have seen glimpses of him through the previous books although the author hasn’t given a huge amount about what makes this guy tick away, you are given the impression he is a vampire with only a few specific requirements. Bria Fairchild, has pretty much spent her life locked away behind the closed doors of her uncles compound, he believes it is for her protection, but little does he know that she spends her evenings sneaking around town in her own special way… Jenner is your typical gruff, growly alpha Vampire, so when Bria’s uncle brings her to Mikhail’s mansion with life ending injuries one evening, the last thing he expects is for their souls to tether to each other after she has been turned, as she is in essence the opposite of everything he is, and he believes himself completely unworthy of a woman so beguiling and pure. Her presence was the calming warmth to his cold cruelty. Her touch a gentle balm to his abrasive violence. Except she isn’t as innocent as he initially assumed, and what ensues is a battle of wills, hormones and pretty much everything in-between for them. "You blood is like a drug… Just a sip and I’m wired." Bria wants him, but he is not sure he can hold onto his control well enough to be the gentle and caring lover he thinks she needs. "I know you want me… Why don’t you do something about it." I absolutely devoured this book, the push and pull between this pair that plays out around the bigger story going on made it totally unputdownable. Both vulnerable in their own ways, Jenner believes he is doing the best for his mate when he tries to keep her away from the action and out of his bed, when in essence he is doing the same to her, as her uncle has done for the previous ten years. "Today is the first day of my existence." Reading her fighting her way through and out of that over-protective shell that both men try to keep around her was really enjoyable. The Last True Vampire series has got plenty of life left in it yet, lots of questions still remain unanswered in the main theme of the story, and with a plethora of secondary characters including Chelle, Siobhan and Lucas that I want to see find their own Happy endings… Well as happy as they can be when you have half the Supernatural world wanting to kill, capture or drink your blood! I cannot wait for more from this series and hopefully soon! This is a turning point. ARC generously provided via Netgalley, and it was my pleasure to provide the above honest review.
