Gideon Green is a vampire hunter. His only family has become the servant of the vampire Queen. Now Gideon is all messed up and doesn’t know what he believes about vampires. He used to kill them, now some he calls friend. He longs for peace; he had that once with his brother’s wife. Her Domination brought him peace just for a little while.
This need for peace and Domination leads him to Club Atlantis. There he meets the sexy Dominatrix Anwyn, the club's owner. She brings him peace for a little while. But when a vampire attack threatens her life, it is Gideon who must bring her peace. But this peace comes at a price. He must get over his fear of vampires and join forces with not one but two to save the woman he is coming to love more than his own life.
Can Gideon put aside years of pain and misery in order to save Anwyn? Vampire Mistress by Joey W. Hill is a journey into the dark world of BDSM and vampires. This book is not for the faint of heart. There is blood play and a rape scene that will make the more squeamish reader balk a little. I found these scenes to be really heartfelt and powerful additions to this gripping tale.
Gideon is a lost soul. He has seen and committed so much he cannot see past the pain and the death anymore. Anwyn is a fiercely independent soul. She is a human in a vampire’s world. She will not cross certain lines, and she has a heart that might be able to bring a vampire hunter back from the darkness.
We also meet one of the more intriguing vampires, Daegan Rei. He is a legend in the vampire world. And the love of Anwyn’s life. How can such strong personalities come together to form a triad like no other? Well if you want answers, this novel will not give them to you. The ending is heartbreaking. I truly hope Daegan stays and finds peace. I am really excited to see the next vampire novel from Ms. Hill and how Daegan comes together with Anwyn and Gideon. He needs peace too, he deserves it, especially for all he has done. Though part of a series, Vampire Mistress can be read alone and enjoyed completely. When you want a novel that is complex, gritty and completely unforgettable you want Vampire Mistress.
