After a very unproductive week due to being laid low with a lovely Sinus Infection, I am glad to be back in the reviewing seat and starting off my catch-up with a review of Lore & Lust by Karla Nikole. This was one I discovered via Jake (is reading) and between the beautiful cover and his review, I was curious and decided to give it a go and wound up enjoying it immensely.
The slow burn vampire romance you didn’t know you needed…
Haruka Hirano is alive, but not quite living. Surviving but not thriving. As an elite purebred vampire in the twenty-first century, he is broken. Content in his subpar existence.
He is done with life. But life is not finished with him.
When he receives a formal request to oversee an antiquated vampire ritual at Hertsmonceux Castle, Haruka grudgingly leaves his home to meet another purebred. The vampire is not what he expects. Truly, he is unlike any vampire Haruka has ever encountered: cautious, innocent and with the warmth and gravitational pull of the sun.
Lore and Lust is an exploration of cultures, contemporary society and romance. It puts a whimsical spin on traditional vampire lore, while also creating a vivid new world where love is love. No questions asked.
Mature sexual content.
