REVIEW: Vampire Mistress by Joey W. Hill

Vampire Mistress 
by Joey W. Hill
Vampire Queen #5
Erotic/BDSM Paranormal Romance
Paperback, 389 pages
Published May 4th 2010 by Berkley Heat
RATING: ★★★★

Joey W. Hill returns to the dark and seductive landscape of her Vampire Queen novels as a desperate woman named Anwyn finds herself trapped between the desires of two men, each with his own mission of the night: vampire hunter Gideon Green and vampire Daegan Rei. But when Anwyn is attacked by a rogue bloodsucker, Gideon and Daegan must become allies in order to save the woman they both love.


I love the Vampire Queen series and I'm OCD when it comes to reading a series in order but you could start with Vampire Mistress and you would be ok. There are a few mentions of previous characters in the other books but nothing that will have you lost.

IMO this book has the most emotional tug of war going on between the characters in the series so far. You've got three strong willed characters that is looking for something that's missing in their lives.

Gideon is a loner and hates vampires so he has devoted his life to being the best vampire hunter.

Anwyn is the beautiful owner and operator of Atlantis, a BDSM club.

Deagan is a dark, mysterious and sexy vampire.

Gideon finds himself being drawn to Atlantis and after he doesn't find what he is looking for during 1st and 2nd visit; he gets a visit from the beautiful owner. He knows that she is want he has been needing. But when he finds out that she is in some kind of relationship with vampire and he pulls away from her.

The vampire in question is the mysterious Daegan. He and Anwyn have been in a relationship for 5 years. Deagan is the only person that Anwyn will submit to but she can't allow herself to totally submit to Deagan and become his servant. So the two's relationship is on an edge of either failing or becoming what they both need. That's where Gideon comes in. He could be the missing piece to the puzzle they need to make all three happy.

The threesome goes through hell together and are trying to make their way back. All three needs to learn how to submit to one another. But with three dominant characters it won't be easy.

They do not get their HEA in Vampire Mistress, their story continues in Vampire Trinity. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how they overcome their personal hang ups and learn to be a part of the harsh vampire world and it rules.

Vampire Mistress is not for the fate at heart. It has violence and emotional rollercoaster mixed with strong BDSM elements. But if you are looking for a sexy and intense read pick it up today.

I recommend starting at the beginning of the series just so you learn the rules of the vampire/servant roles and get a little background on some of the other characters. But like I said if you wanted to start with this one you won't be lost.

  1. I love this book. I love Vampire Trinity (the next one) even more! I think the Gideon trinity might be my favorite characters from the whole series. Something about the alpha menage (bc they are all extremely stubborn and strong) is just plain sexy. With the BDSM elements, it's irresistable and unapologetic! Like you said, these books are not for the faint of heart! But anyone brave enough to read them, with an interest in BDSM and/or D/s, will absolutely fall in love. Can't wait to see your interview in two days!
