If you are not into BDSM, truly into it, it's not for you. I don't suggest that you pick up this book unless you are not squeamish and you enjoy extremely hardcore BDSM and senseless violence. I have to say that this book was difficult to for me to read. Jacob struggle against becoming not much more than an obedient dog capable of performing complex tricks and providing sexual pleasure when Lady Lyssa demands. It also bothered me that rape was considered a spectator sport serving to arouse the watchers and physical torture, such as broken bones and the like, was something utilized as easily as a hanky for no other purpose than proving who held the power.

This series is sooo good! When I first started this book I wanted to give it away, dump it in the local thrift store, or donate it to my local library...I just wanted to get rid of it... I could barley get into it...So much erotica, and I am not a hugh fan of that... But.... OMG, get pass that and you will be thrilled to have read this. What a treat! OMG! You have to wait till the end of this book and the beginning of the next book and you will be so happy! You will fall in love with this series ...At least I did. I cant wait to read it again...this series (Vampire Queen and Vampire Servant) is awesome!

If you are looking for a book full of explicit sex with some graphic violence and a descent plot then you've found a winner! Parts were a little cheesy but not enough to stop me from reading. Awaiting the second book to arrive in the mail.

This book is HOT!!! The Vampire Queen Series is a great past time for reading even though I couldnt peel myself away from it. All the books that are in the series are also read alone books but the series is great too when you get to meet all the characters.

I'm a fan of adult novels. I've read a lot of them through out my adult life and enjoyed them all in the end even if it started of slow but this book is not my favorite. In fact, I don't think I will ever buy another book from this author. The whole story was disgusting. I did not like Lyssa's personality at all and the way she treats Jacob like some sex toy is enough to make me want to throw up. His character for a male was completely weak. They way he keeps running back to her after all the torturing she puts him through just makes me sick. He's completely stupid! I mean, I read some novels where the writer makes the heroine tough and strong minded to the point where it gets irritating but at least she becomes a likable character at some point in the story but this Lyssa character was awful to the end. Just my personal opinion. Please don't be offended if you're a Joey Hill fan but I'll never buy another one of her books. This was my first book from her and my first impression of her style of writing. I don't like it at all.

This is the first book I read by Joey W.Hill and I'm so glad I found it. I'm not one for paranormal books but Joeys style of writing quickly pulled me into the story. The characters came to life and it felt like you were right there with them. I think I'm hooked!

Yuck! I love Vampire/Paranormal Erotica, but these vampires are awful! No redeeming qualities whatsoever. I love tortured heroes/heroines, but in this book the heroine is just cruel.

This is great vampire reading. I loved the book all the way through. It was just sexy enough without going overboard. I am glad this is the first in the series as I would like to read more.

It's Joey Hill, so it's well written. But it's a hard read. I didn't like it and in the end, skimmed and even then, didn't care for it. I found the heroine, Lyssa, too alien, and detached, and Jacob, too uncomfortable with the submissive role. What I loved about Nature of Desire was that it could take me into a very alien world (for me) and make me understand the relationships. Here, I just didn't get Lyssa. She's 1000 years old and enjoys torturing people. Well, good for her, do I have to spend time with her? And Jacob, so longing for a cause that he would give himself up for her? There was some reincarnation/ true love/soul mate/destiny crap going on, but I really didn't care for the central relationship and didn't like Lyssa at all. So this is a rare pass for me. There's something about Hill's supernatural motifs that just don't work for me, which saddens me because her latest books have all had it... Sigh...

I am a Vampire fan so I picked this up. Don't mind erotica or kinky sex, but am not a real fan of Romance - too sweet and fake. This books starts out very romancey, very icky. Still I kept reading, and it got much, much better.I liked the characters, the setting, and the explanation for the vampires and their society. I enjoyed the sometimes snarky give and take between Lyssa and Jacob. I thought the introduction of the fatal vampire disease was a very good twist. The writing was very good, and so was the storytelling. It made me read it at 100 miles per hour.The sex was good if too brief, and Hill flirts with S&M-BDSM- Lite. Would have preferred if she had more courage.Will keep reading this series until it gets too repetitive, because that is the other drawback with Romance. The story becomes the same with only the details changing.

A VAMPIRE MASTER YOU’LL FALL IN LOVE WITH!! Jessica Tyson’s happy life is abruptly ended when she is kidnapped and thrown into the violent world of Vampires. Brutally tortured for 5 years, she has lost all hope. Twice marked as a servant by her cruel Master, she clings to her humanity through the tales she reads in a 300 year old diary. The tragic love story of the Arabic beauty Farida and the man she loves Lord Mason are Jessica’s only escape from the horrors she endures. The sudden opportunity to kill her cruel Master before he can complete the 3rd mark frees Jessica, but heads her toward imminent death. Her only wish before she dies is to visit the secret tomb Lord Mason has made for his beloved Farida. After a long journey with 3 traveling guides, she finds her way into the tomb. She’s prepared to die at Farida’s side only to be thwarted by her traveling companions desire to rob the many riches they find there. The robbers are stopped by none other than Lord Mason himself. At that moment, Jessica realizes the man she has come to know and love through the pages of Farida’s diary is himself a Vampire. Heartbroken, she crumbles under this latest torment and falls unconscious near death. But what Jessica doesn’t realize is that although Lord Mason is a Vampire, he is also everything Farida said about the man she loved. Intrigued by her, and guided by compassion Lord Mason brings Jessica to his home. When he learns the truth behind what caused her Master’s death he marks her as one of his own and sets out to help her regain the life that was stolen from her. Consumed by his own guilt over his role in his beloved Farida’s death, with patience and tenderness Lord Mason teaches Jessica that trust IS possible, and Dominance and submission can be the key to finding your heart’s desire…for them both. Book 4 in the Vampire Queen series. This story is so beautifully written. The characters are richly drawn and their struggle to find Love again is the thread that ties this story together. Erotic and deeply sensual, the attraction between Jessica and Lord Mason is palpable. As we watch Jessica struggle to overcome her memories of the horrific BDSM sexual games her former Master subjected her to, Lord Mason shows her what those same sexual games can be when done for their shared pleasure. We get to see other familiar characters from this series. Lady Lyssa and her servant Jacob (book 1, 2 & 8) along with Lady Daniela and her servant Devlin (book 3) show up to help Mason show Jessica what the right type of Master/Mistress/servant relationship can be when submission is willingly given. Joey W Hill is the BEST when writing erotic BDSM relationships and these beautiful preternatural predators!!

This is a darkly sensual and intensely erotic introduction to the world of Joey W. Hill’s Vampire Queen series now numbering 9. It starts off with an introduction to the last remaining Vampire Queen Lady Elyssa Yamato Amaterasu Wentworth and her new servant former vampire hunter Jacob Green. This is an incredible world with sex, politics, Vampires and Fae. Nobody can get you into the mindset of her characters quite like Joey W. Hill. And because I’ve read this one I now have to go re-read the next installment The Mark of the Vampire Queen

Harsh femdom BDSM with deep, complex emotional characterizations. Powerful romance (surprising under the circumstances unless you're familiar with Joey W. Hill's writing). Tension maintained in spite of slow forward movement in regard to plot. Jacob is a wonderful hero--an alpha male who will submit only to Lyssa. This is part one of a two-part story in the series. So while there is some satisfaction, the story is far from complete. The rest of the story is told in "The Mark of the Vampire Queen."

If you are a fan of paranormal romance and looking for an exciting/addicting/amazing new series than look no further. Joey W. Hill has written a wonderful paranormal book with The Vampire Queen's Servant. There is no way you will be able to put this books down, it is a total must read.
Mistress_RoseMR More than 1 year ago
The Vampire Queen's Servant by Joey .W. Hill is book one in her 'Vampire Queen Series', it's certainly not for the faint of heart or if you are used to something a little more tame and vanilla. This book delves into BDSM and D/s all the way. Jacob is one of those sexy Alpha men that has you drooling, nothing about him says submissive but when he sees Lady Lyssa he wants her, he learns her ways, how to look after her, be her servant. This was a terrific read just like the rest of the Vampire series it will not let you down I just wished I could give it a better rating then a 5 star. Mistress rose
