This is my first book by Winter Pennington and I loved it. Winter's characters are very sensual in nature and this book skirts around BDSM, and threesomes. Which not everyone will be comfortable with.
The book starts in 1810 and Ephiany is slowly dying from TB when she ventures out into the night, knowing her death will be soon here, she wants to see the moon one last time. She comes arcross some mysterious riders who kidnap her and bring her to there lair.
Where she inds herself surrounded by people who the kidnappers have taken as well.
It is here she first sees Renata, the vampire queen. Ephiany, already dying by the illness, does not fear what happens to her, and Renata becomes intrested in her, so much so she turns her into a vampire and pursuing a relationship with her.
Fast forward two hundread years, we find Ephiany getting ready for the test that will define her as an elder Vampire.
Ephiany is reluctant to take the test, knowing she will have to see Renata, who cast her adside 150 years ago without a reason. Not everyone belives Ephiany should be elevated, and she has spent the last 150 years being as inconpicuous as possible.
Renata asks to see her assoon as she arrives.
In the middle of her trial, there are some who belive Renata doesn't deserve to be queen and plans an attack, using the aid of a much more powerful being.
This is the first book in The Rosso Lussuria Vampire series and I'll defintily read the next one.Summoning Shadows: A Rosso Lussuria Vampire Novel
