This is the fifth book in the Vampire Realm Romance Series. I loved it! Winter is a vampire and a member of the Validus bloodline, one of the oldest vampire families. He is the Chosen Son and second in command to Lord Hyperion. I liked this character a lot. He is the ultimate warrior - protective of his bloodline and loyal. When the human he secretly covets is attacked, he is torn between his loyalty to his family and his love for Nika. Nika is a human, who has grown up in a village near to the Validus castle in Russia. I liked this character. She is rather naive about the world around her, but after an attack that changes her world, she finds herself facing a deadly decision. This is another fantastic erotic paranormal romance in the series. The world building has gotten better, and the characters more complex and sexy. The story is an exciting roller coaster ride from start to finish. Having already been introduced to a vampire/werewolf couple in the Prophecy Trilogy in the form of Mia and Demitri, it was intriguing to follow Winter and Nika's journey. The story is told from both Winter's and Nika's point of view. I felt for Winter as he dealt with the devastating consequences of the werewolf attack on Nika. Not only is a relationship between a vampire and werewolf frowned on, it is against the Law and is punishable by death. The raw passion that Winter and Nika feel for each other comes across as scorching! The pages just about combust! There are several twists and turns, and I have come to the conclusion that Lord Hyperion is either a rebel, or he has a soft spot for couples in love. Nevertheless, I am beginning to like the Validus leader a lot! It would be interesting to read his story eventually. The end of the story made me very happy and, although this book can be read as a stand alone, I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Hunter's Moon. Felicity Heaton has written another fantastic paranormal romance. I love her writing style, which is fast paced, exciting and believable. She is number one on my Favourite Authors List. As this is an erotic paranormal romance with explicit scenes, I do not recommend this book to younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love erotic paranormal romances full of action, adventure, sexy vampires and werewolves. - Lynn Worton
I am a huge fan of all of Felicity's books. Winter's Kiss was another epic romance that took a hold of me even after I had finished the book. It amazes me how a being with no beating heart and that is cold to the touch can have such a giant loving "heart" Winter will melt you. This is another installment in the Vampires Realm Series. The entire series is exceptional and will not disappoint you.
Winter's Kiss is part of the Vampire Realm series but can be read as a standalone... Winter is a Vampire who stands guard outside his family's mansion. Nika is the gorgeous girl that Winter watches pass his sentry point every day but never talks to her, regardless of her efforts. One night on her way home Nika is attacked by what she thinks are wolves and Winter comes to her rescue, unfortunately too late as he realises she is becoming a werewolf.... It is at this point that she discovers the whispers and rumors about those who live in the mansion are true!! His head tells him one thing, he can never be with her as it's forbidden but his heart tells him something very different!! Can he be with his love or must he give her up to honour & protect his bloodline/family & their secrets. This is a fantastic book. I love Winter & Nika... He loves her with such passion & strength but has such loyalty to his family!! How will he ever be able to choose?!? This is another fantastic installment from an excellent series by Felicity and for me is a must read!!!
