The Vampire Dimitri Review

The Vampire Dimitri

Regency London loves a Society wedding –
Even if there are vampires on the guest list.
Dimitri, the Earl of Corvindale, should be delighted that the headstrong Maia Woodmore is getting married. His mortal ward and houseguest has annoyed – and bewitched – the Dracule nobleman too long, and denying his animal cravings grows more excruciating by the day.
Miss Woodmore's family has a rather...complicated history with the immortals and she herself possesses a keen sensibility far beyond mere women's intuition. Marriage will give her safety, respectability, and everything else a proper young lady could wish for. Everything, that is, except for passion.
In the looming battle between Dracule factions, all pretenses will shatter as Maia and Dimitir come together in an unholy union of danger, desperation, and fiercest desire.

What I Liked
Maia Woodmore The elder sister, she is use to taking care of the family after their parents death. She also tries to be very prim and proper in the eyes of both the public and her family. But in all actually she keeping her very potential sexy nature in check, but she is having a very hard time being around the aloft Dimitri, the Earl of Corvindale. She is very witty, feisty, doesn't like to be told what to do and loves to verbally spare especially with the Earl.
Dimitri, the Earl of Corvindale He is the classic brooding, dark male character but unlike Voss in book one he is pretty much celibate. He doesn't want to be a vampire and he is trying to find anyway to break free of his deal with the devil so he is denying his need for pleasure and human blood. Maia is very tempting and he is having a very hard time controlling his urges and the 100+ years of good behavior (very entertaining interactions with the 2 characters throughout the book)
Love Affair
She is engaged to be married, but hasn't seen her fiance for 18 months and the Earl is bringing out her inner lioness. I love their I push you push antics throughout the story. They are both stubborn mules, both not willing to budge till the other makes their move first. Love it!

Not Quit Sure
I'm still not sure how I feel about the set up of this series, it is the 1st I have ever read like it. So book 1 takes place from day 1 to (lets say) 2 months. The main POV is Angelica and Voss with an occasional Maia and Dimitri. Book 2 starts on day 1 and goes to (lets say) month 4. The main POV is Dimitri and Maia with an a little of Narcise (book 3). Book 2 goes back through book 1 from the opposite POV of the character so you re-read some of the same scenes but from the others POV. Sorry it is a little confusing to explain, I guess you could also describe it like Twilight is from Bella's POV and Midnight Sun is from Edward's POV, you get the same story but from the others perspective. It is intriguing because you get more information in the second book because the POV from the 1st book may not have known what was going on. I like it, but it is also new and very different from anything I have ever read. I'm not sure where book 3 is going to start, I guess I will just have to see. 
If you read book 1 you have to read book 2.
