The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs

“Abigail Gibbs will make you fall in love with vampires all over again....but look out: these vampires will bite.”— Meg Cabot, bestselling author of Insatiable and The Princess Diaries

Do you fear me Violet Lee?
Do you know what I could do to you?

A chance encounter on a deserted street plunges Violet into a world beyond her wildest imaginings - a world of elegance and beauty where aristocratic vampires live for decadent pleasures…a place from which there is no escape…

But beneath the splendor lies a darkness, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous heir to the throne, Kaspar Varn.

As Violet and Kaspar surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds, they soon discover that it’s a passion that comes at a price…

The 411 by Maria:

I don't think it is a the sexiest romance I have read this year, honestly it wasn't sexy to me but I am not a teen. The writing was a little juvenile but that is OK, she is writing for a younger crowd.  It was poorly edited and there were some spelling errors, but that is OK too, everyone makes mistakes. I didn't hate it. I didn't love it.  The story starts with a massive killing that Violet witnesses. She is dragged away by the murders and held captive until the story unfolds. These are vampires and her daddy and the government knows all about them.  There has been some comparison to Twilight which is unfair to both books. The only comparison could be that Violet and Bella are teenagers and the boy they love a vampire. That is the only similarity. 

The two main characters do not have the undying love of Bella and Edward. I didn't feel a thing for either of them but, I am not a teenager. 

I love the cover and appreciate the author's ability to tell a story and put all those words on paper. It is no easy feat to do. There are 532 pages after all. A LONG story. 

There were witty moments and book lovers of the genre should give it a try. 19+ is my recommendation for reading it! Younger girls can stay away from it. The bad boy thing is over rated.
