A Vampire Narcise: An Unwilling Seducer of Mortal and Immortal Men

Skilled in the seduction of men, both mortal and immortal, Narcise Moldavi is the greatest weapon in her twisted brother's war among the Dracule. Until she falls for Giordan Cale.
Her first searing encounter with Giordan seals their fierce connection for their eternal lives. But Giordan's vow to help Narcise escape her brother's rule is followed by a betrayal more agonizing than sunlight.
Wounded but determined, Narcise ensnares vampire hunter Chas Woodmore in her quest for revenge and to reclaim her life. He wants her, worships her, will kill for her. And the Dracule never forget a wrong— nor do they forgive. 

The Vampire Narcise is the last so far in the Dracule Series by Colleen Gleason. This one was the hardest for me to read. The characters are so dynamic and relatable that Narcise was one that I was scared to connect with. Having been introduced to her character in The Vampire Dimitri and The Vampire Voss I expected her to be cold, caluclating and not at all a victim. When in acutality she is the most amazing character out of the series. 

Two men love her and will do anything for her. Chas Woodmore, the vampire hunter, and Giordan Cale another Dracule. Chas, loathes that he loves a vampire, and Cale he just loves her. Foolishly, wholeheartedly and arrogantly loves her. Through misunderstanding and the maniplations of her immortal affliction, her brother, Narcise falls into Chas' waiting arms and freedom after she lives through Cale's very unbelievable betrayal.   

After Voss and Dimitri's transformations I expected something along those lines for Narcise. I was pleasantly surprised that it was far from the expected. Colleen Gleason is a visionary that respects the romanticism with vampires but also cuts her own notch in this paranormal world of "balls, beaux, dance cards and fangs." 

Disclaimer: This is a sensual romance like the other two in the series however this one got a little intense in areas at times and I had to skip over those parts. But that's just me. It may not be a problem for you and therefore that's why I won't say which parts they are.
