Wanton with a Vampire by Cassandra Lawson

Genre: Paranormal Romance
For more than two-hundred years, Aleksandr Draksel has avoided commitment of any kind. His life of travel and meaningless affairs was all he needed. That is until he met Trish Williams, a woman he is inexplicably drawn to. She is also the one woman he cannot have. When Trish’s life takes a deadly turn, and she becomes the target of a killer, Alek finds himself in the strange position of protector. He is determined to do whatever it takes to keep her safe and resist the urge to seduce her.

From the moment she met Alek, Trish has been irritated, flustered, and aroused. Despite her attraction, a future with him was impossible because he could never have more than a short fling with a normal human. Unlike her friends, Trish has no psychic abilities- or so she thought. One broken shoe changes everything. Now, she is determined to live life to the fullest. She is also determined to seduce Aleksandr Draksel.




Trish looked up and touched the side of his cheek. “Will you sleep with me, Alek?”

Sucking in a sharp breath, Alek was instantly hard. “That would be a really bad idea.”

“Why?” she asked.

“Why?” he sputtered. “I don’t know where to begin with the reasons why this is a bad idea.”

“Listen, Alek, I haven’t had much experience,” Trish admitted. “That time with you was the only time I’ve ever climaxed with a partner.”

Alek opened his mouth, but all that came out was a strange gurgling sound.

The woman actually laughed at him. “You look ridiculous. Is this all it would have taken to get you to back off a month ago? Are you one of those guys who only want a woman who’s a challenge?”

“I prefer women who aren’t a challenge,” he admitted. “You’re an exception. That has nothing to do with the reason I think this is a bad idea. I’m not going to take advantage of you when you’re recovering from a serious injury. You’ve had some terrible shocks in the last couple of days.”

“Believe it or not, I’m just asking you to sleep,” she said. “I’m freaked out and emotional. I watched my father die today, and I don’t want to be alone.”

Alek was more than a little embarrassed about his assumption. “Of course. I don’t know what I was thinking.”

“You were thinking you’re an attractive man who has women throw themselves at him all the time. Bet not a lot of women invite you to their bed for reasons other than sex.”

“True, but I should have known you weren’t planning to seduce me.”

“I wouldn’t even know where to start,” she admitted. “Seduction isn’t something I have a lot of experience with.”

“You were doing fine when you told me I’m the only man you’d ever climaxed with,” he confessed. “That got me thinking about all sorts of other ways I want to make you climax.”

The shy smile she gave him made him even harder, something she must have noticed while sitting on his lap. “Good, because I do plan to seduce you, just not tonight.”

- My Review -

Great addition to series, was fun getting to know Trish and who knew Romans brother Alek was so hot! 

If your a fan of vampire romance books and havent started ths series yet, you really should. This is book 5 of the series and each book features another couple so you can read them as standalone, but if you read in order you do get to enjoy the side characthers a lot more. Onto this book...

Trish's friends have all developed strange abilities and gone an shacked up with vampires! She's a quiet one though and has found a friend in Nathaniel, along with Nath and a few other men in the family, all single men have been told to keep away from Trish!

Alek is Romans brother (if you havent read his book you really should, I cant beleive how I fell for that 'old man'!). Alek is known as a man whore, he sleeps about and doesnt commit.

Alek has been warned off from Trish, but he finds that even more of a challenge....there's something about her he cant resist. He flirts and messes with Trish one night and that leads to something happening that will change everything......

Alek and Trish make a great couple, yes Alek is bossy like most of the men in the family, its strange how they mellow when the right woman comes along, Alek is no different. Alek brings out the best in Trish too, she really comes to life.

Alek has a nephew Drew, his a little messed up to put it lightly, he has a part in this book and I absolutely loved him, he might want to kill people all the time but he says exactly what he thinks and its great.

Its a smooth story, yes there is some angst and danger but not as much as some of the other books. There most certainly is some sexy scenes, they say the quiet ones are the worst lol

I enjoyed this story and cant wait for the next book in series.
