My Review:

Would you give up your humanity for your long-lost beloved? Notorious jewel thief Sophia Daniels is on a mission to retrieve a diamond rumored to be guarded by a vampire known only as The Black Knight. Once on the property, she meets a handsome yet brooding man. With one touch, her mind is flooded with memories from a past life, a life with the man she’s just met, named Cassius. He pleads for one night with him and she agrees. Passion reignites her soul and she remembers everything. The choice she must make will change her life and his as well. Will she choose to become a vampire like him or walk away from an all-consuming love?

Black Lotus is a scintillating vampire romance from one of my favorite authors. In Black Lotus, two tropes emerge, vying for supremacy: vampire romance and reincarnation romance. My paranormal romance heart is all aflutter with expectation and this book didn’t disappoint. From the beginning, I connected with Sophia. She’s such a strong, independent, sassy heroine. Her reactions to vampires being real rings true and much of what she says is probably what I would say if asked the same questions. The link between Sophia and Cassius is visceral, raw passion. The emotion described in both POVs will take your breath away. The restraint Cassius has is impressive. The plot itself moves at a terrific pace with luscious romantic scenes to melt your heart and heat your skin. This is book one in a brand new multi-author series. I can’t wait to read them all. If you’re a paranormal romance reader with a love affair with vampires, you’ll want to read Black Lotus. If steamy vampire romances are your reading jam, pick up Black Lotus. Highly recommend!

My Rating: 5+ stars

Author Biography:

Kristal Dawn Harris is a multiple award-winning, RONE nominated, American romance author. She has been married for 30 years and has two children. Kristal finished a degree from Miami University in Accounting Technology, but quickly realized she preferred words over numbers. She is an avid reader and, in particular, loves darker paranormal romance. Her hobbies include coin collecting, physical fitness, stained-glass art (beginner), poetry, and song writing. Kristal writes paranormal, erotic, fantasy, as well as contemporary romance in different lengths. FROM THE AUTHOR My novels allow me to develop in-depth worlds and I've enjoyed writing each one. If you like a longer book then The Rings books, The Burn, or Three Propositions might be what you're looking for. My novellas always center on the romance between the hero and heroine. Most are designed to have a prior connection, so there is some basis for their relationship with a couple twists tossed in. It might surprise you to know, novellas and novelettes are my favorite to write. Not because of the length, but the focus on the couple. I like it hot, so expect The Red Heart series is actually historical erotic...light erotic. The Dragon's Gift, Blood Bond, and Seduction by Blood are paranormal erotic. Fair warning romance readers...ha!
