PNR Review: A Tale of Two Vampires: A Dark Ones Novel [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "A Tale of Two Vampires" a book in the Dark Ones series by Katie MacAlister.

Product Description

Time isn’t always on a vampire’s side ....

Iolanthe Tennyson has had a very bad year — due in part to the very bad men in her life. So she’s accepted her cousin’s invitation to spend the summer in Austria to indulge her photography hobby. Rumors of a haunted forest there draw Iolanthe into the dark woods — and into the eighteenth century ....

Nikola Czerny is a cursed man, forced by his half brothers to live forever as a Dark One. But his miserable existence takes an intriguing turn when a strange, babbling woman is thrown in his path. Iolanthe claims to know Nikola’s daughter — three hundred years in the future. She also knows what fate — in the form of his murderous half brothers — has in store for him. If only she knew the consequences of changing the past to save one good, impossibly sexy vampire ...

About the Author

Ever the romantic, Katie MacAlister decided one day to write a story that included all her favorite literary elements — dishy guys, strong women, steamy love scenes, and lots and lots of humor. She’s been blessed to write more than forty books since that first one, and is always madly in love with her latest hero.

My Review:

Iolanthe Tennyson (known as Io) goes to stay with cousin Gretl in Austria for a couple of months after losing her job because of sexual harassment.  She has always enjoyed photography and decides to take some pictures of a haunted forest.  She accidentally goes through a portal which brings her back 300 years back in past.

Nikola Czerny was forced to become a Dark One after his two stepbrothers betrayed him.  He finds Io on the side of the road after she run into one of his horses.

This was a very fast paced and hilarious light paranormal read with two likeable leads.  The banter between Io and Nikola was very humorous and laugh out funny.


Thanks Penguin Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
