Description:

In a world of darkness where royal vampires are in charge, I spend my days working as a knight in the city formerly known as London. Instead of a lance and a horse, I rely on my trusty axe, Babe, and ride the occasional dragon. Every day new threats emerge that require a dash of magic and a dollop of attitude.

Good thing I have both.

Naturally danger comes with the territory. What no one knows is just how dangerous it is for me. If our vampire overlords discover what I am, they’ll execute me on the spot—no questions asked—which is why I avoid them at all costs.

Until now.

If only this one didn’t have a lethal reputation, a princely pedigree, and a quest that leads to more questions than answers. The heat between us doesn’t help matters.

Unfortunately I can’t refuse a royal command, so I’m stuck until the job is complete.

And even if the job doesn’t kill me, the truth just might.

Review:

This looked interesting, so I downloaded it from the KU Library.

This starts with London going into the underbelly of what was once her namesake, hunting down a man who stole something from her client. Upon retrieving the item, she heads back to her Knights' headquarters to tell them she's completed it when she's told a friend from another guild has another job for them. Only when she turns up she finds her client is a vampire - a species London does her best to avoid so they don't kill her on the spot - she tries her best to turn him down but he's dogged and keeps turning up wherever she is until she gives in.

I did like this one. I was more interested in the brewing attraction between London and Prince Callan, though, than the mystery she'd been asked to solve. There was just such a pull between them at times that you could tell something was happening there, something was beginning to build between them.

I did like some of the stuff that London and her Knights of Boudica got up to and the banter between them. I even grew to like Callan's brother.

I will definitely be reading more of this series very soon!
