A Shade of Vampire (A Shade of Vampire, Book 1)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.
Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

We don’t know who owns her.” Still, his eyes were on me, his free hand running the length of my arm. Husky showed no indication of stopping his taste tests of the blood coming out of the scrapes on my body. I stood there, trying to
was horrified to find myself blurting out my name in response. “Sofia Claremont.” As soon as I revealed my name, his eyes lit up with a kind of sinister approval. Then he reached for my face and traced his thumb over my jaw line. “Hello, Sofia Claremont. You’re one stupid girl for taking a walk alone at this time of night. You never know what kind of evil a pretty little thing like you could happen to come by.” I found myself wondering exactly what kind of evil he was. But I was suddenly
The moment our eyes met, he looked away, almost as if he were embarrassed about something. It was actually… cute – a word I never thought I’d use to describe Derek Novak. As we walked back to the Pavilion, he remained silent, deep in thought, never even looking my way. “You said that you wanted to teach me how to defend myself…” I eventually said, breaking the silence, detesting the wall that seemed to be building up between us. “Yes,” he nodded. He then paused as if to catch himself. “But if
leering at us, “is The Vale.” The dirt path we were trekking along eventually led to a cobblestone street that was teeming with life. It was clearly some sort of hub for trade, based on the large crowds of people milling about the place – as if it were the most normal thing in the world to go to market at this unholy hour of the night. I had almost forgotten my fear for a moment as my eyes widened with fascination. Parts of The Vale looked like a town that had popped right out of the medieval
