About The Book
When Valentine’s sire is forced to take a mate by his Clan leader, Valentine is reduced to stoking the castle’s furnaces as nothing more than a cindered servant to the new matriarch. With his sire Libertine incarcerated and Valentine forced to wear a cursed collar, there seems no way to escape Belladonna’s hold on them.
When a stranger appears, Valentine is surprised by how quickly he trusts the other vampire. He accepts the request to go to the castle of his Clan Lord, the ancient and powerful Hades, to uncover who is working to overthrow him. His reward is freedom for both him and his sire.
No one is meant to know who he really is, and Valentine pretends he’s one of Hades’ favorites while in the castle, adopting the name Cinder and playing his Seductive nature to its full.
But his world is shaken to its core when Valentine finds himself falling for the enigmatic Cole. As a Seductive, Valentine never imagined he’d want an Alpha Predator as a mate. Worse yet, it may be that Cole could be the very one he’s been sent to uncover.
When the battle for dominance begins, where will Valentine’s loyalty lie?
This book is a take off of Cinderella but with vampires, M/M sex, an evil stepmother, two evil stepsisters and instead of Cinderella we have Cinderfeller.
Valentine is a vampire and his sire and the man he calls father is Libetine. Valentine and his sire live a comfortable life until the day that Libetine is forced to take a mate. Libertine has no say in the matter because his clan leader Mandrake has given him no choice. He is to mate the clan leader’s sister Belladonna but both Valentine and Libertine are sure there is a reason behind this mating and it is not good.
As soon as Belladonna comes to the home Libertine is locked up in a tower, a prisoner in his own home and Valentine is nothing more than a slave living in the furnace room wearing a collar that makes leaving impossible. Things change when another vampire appears in the furnace room seeking Valentine’s help, his name is Seth and he needs him to go to Lord Hades’ mansion and see what he can find out. A big ball is in the works and Seth is sure that Hades’ life is in danger.
While spying and going by the name Lord Cinderfeller, Valentine meets and gets involved with another vampire named Cole. Cole is a Predator vampire whereas Valentine is a Seductive one and when Cole shows an interest in Valentine he is unwilling to refuse his attention.
The book is filled with explicit sex, betrayal, secrets, lies and romance and if you love a Cinderella story and love paranormal romance then this is definitely the book for you.
