Format: Kindle Edition
The main difference between this enjoyable M/M vampire novel and most of those I have read before is that here we have a love triangle, a man, a woman and a (male) vampire who falls for the man.

The vampire folklore is fairly traditional and many details are given but it is clear that the main focus of the author's attention lies in the complex relationships among the three main characters.
Even if we understand right from the start that the woman does not stand a chance against the vampire's charms it is also clear that the author loves her: beautiful, clever, patient, spirited and self sacrificing. Ofelia is not evil, she does not simply stand in the way of the lovers: she is alive, she is loved and lovely and even the vampire respects her.
Events bring these three people together and their meeting has lasting consequences, that is all.

The romance among these three is very intense and satisfying. We are given enough details to understand the workings of their minds and feel for them. Characterization is consistent and generally good, even that of the side characters.

That said this novel is also flawed. Ms Peters' writing is often redundant, full of unnecessary details (and there are several short episodes which are not really relevant to the plot unless she is planning a sequel). Pacing is encumbered by many flashbacks clumsily woven into the plot, often at the worst of times.
The man often accuses the vampire of speaking too much and not acting but the same could be said of the author who tells instead of showing and does not remember that in fiction any sentence must push the plot forward, be it at a leisurely pace.

What a wonderful gripping book, M Peters as a new Author is definatly on to a winner.
this is well written, and I became so involved with the chareters, a love triangle at its best. I have read many vampire/love story books, but this one was a refreshing change from the norm.
I most certainly would recomend this to everyone. and look forward to reading more of her novels.
well done Ms Peters, keep writting.

I am so glad My husband Brought this for me,

Heather Parker

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved It, But What Ending...? 1 Aug. 2012
By Shar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So first of all I really did enjoy Undisclosed Desires by M Peters. I quite liked the two main characters and their clashing personalities that were not very predictable. The book exhibited wonderful characterization and excellent imagery that put you in the place of Spain in this time. However, even though the characters were not necessarily predictable, the plot sort of was. I felt as though there could have been a twist at the end that just did not happen.

I also liked the language used, it was befitting for the time, but the inserts of French and Spanish here and there got a little redundant. Speaking of redundant, there were a couple adjectives that were just used over and over and over again! Seriously though, I wonder how many times the words "older vampire, homolupine, and fledgling" were used. Those just come to mind because, while they are decent descriptions, they were EVERYWHERE. I also noticed that there was a lot of emphasizing (italicizing) in places where it was not really necessary.

Lastly, there was quite a chunk that vanished as far as plot. Without spoiling anything, what I mean is Keith's twin brother and that vial nonsense. Because of the fact that it was not resolved, the whole concept could have been easily removed as a whole. Maybe there was closure as far as that was concerned and it was just edited out? I have no idea. There is also another chunk which I am not mentioning but it has to do with the werewolf concept that also vanished.

Even with these flaws, I still felt as though Undisclosed Desires was a compelling love story that had an interesting setting and even more interesting characters.

The POV shifts constantly and confusingly among the characters as there is nothing to make the reader aware of the shift, not even the simple device of beginning a new paragraph.
Some grammar mistakes, some inconsistencies and a clumsy use of French and Spanish loanwords are also awaiting for a good editor to address them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tired of vampires that sparkle? This is for you then. 3 July 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I run a Facebook group and am usually very active, posting many times throughout the day. Not today. I spent the afternoon reading. Standing up despite physical limitations, because the book was sitting near the table and I got up from lunch to get it and then settle in to read and I opened it instead and got sucked in immediately and so I stood up all afternoon reading, devouring the book, unable to do anything else -- including take a potty break or pull my attention away long enough to walk 6 feet to my chair -- until I'd finished it. What book could hold me like that, you ask? This one. If you want steamy man-on-man sex, vampires that don't sparkle, and LUST, buy it. Like now. I'm still fanning myself and thinking about cold showers.

Keith and Javier are fascinating, and the sexual tension quivers like a strung and pulled bow. The others who play a part in their lives -- Keith's servants Amaroq, Marlon, Linette and Margot, Javier's wife Ofelia, and the man who is determined to hunt Keith down, Chrétienne de Sens -- are much more than walk-on characters and each has his or her own quirks, foibles and desires as they help or hinder Keith's pursuit of Javier. Rich, full characterizations, well-described settings, and writing that draws you in and does not fail to deliver on its early promise make this a book well worth reading. And now, I'm off to read it again, savoring each detail once more. Or twice more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lush, Steamy, Enthralling... 14 Aug. 2013
By Pinkerbelle Rex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This scrumptiously delicious, incredibly romantic vampire novel kept me awake for two nights pawing its pages eagerly, devouring its exquisite content much in the way its characters suckled their meal. Beautifully written, its stylish voice was both Gothic and haunting, evoking a feel of a period piece, but with a modern sensitivity that made its poignant storyline a swift read. The words "swept away" come to mind, for that is precisely what the book did to me and such was the tremendous reaction that the two central lovers had for each other.

Three hundred-year-young Keith D'Ameron is out and about one evening, listening to the cacophony of human heartbeats of the city he lives apart from. He is on the hunt, undecided whether it is substance or company he hungers for, when he hears a heartbeat that stands out from the others. An unusually powerful heartbeat, holding a persistent secular charisma that he cannot ignore. Sweet as a siren's song it is to his preternatural ears and he finds he must locate its origin. His search brings him to a beautiful, green-eyed blond man, young, virile, brash, confident and...cheating, he discovers with some amusement, at the game of cards he is playing with his compadres. So begins the fascinating hunt and chase story of the vampire Keith D'Ameron and the man whose heartbeat has stolen his heart, Javier Estas.

This is a tale of great love, sacrifice, blood, pain and tantalizing joy, and it touched me deeply. I have always been enamored of the vampire legend and have read pretty much all of the classic tales: Dracula, The Hunger, the Saint-Germain series, Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, The Space Vampires, Brian Lumley's Necroscope series and my personal favorite, Tananarive Due's two-volume vampire epic, and am happy to say that the caliber of this story is of that quality.

While the tale is of the male-male romance genre, the author makes no attempt to play "lets take a classic and turn all the female parts into males". Rather this is an original story which pays homage to traditional vampire lore by focusing, not on the thirst for blood, but on the hunger for love, the lust for life, and the very real need all creatures bear, for companionship.

I immediately fell in love with the character of Keith D'Ameron, warming to his restrained emotions, wry wit, and his inherent desire to be honest, despite his ability to simply "take "or seduce" until things go his way. I will admit initially Javier took me aback, his overbearing confidence made me want to smack him around a bit, but he quietly crept under my skin, in the best of ways, and soon I was championing both of these passionate men in their quest for a union. The supporting characters were wonderful, bringing to mind the requisite Renfield's, Lucy's and gypsy folk of Dracula, while being nothing at all like them. I loved the highly original gruff were-wolf-man, Amaroq, and welcomed the mentions of Dante, D'Ameron's twin brother whose acquaintance I hope to make in a sequel to this lovely Gothic treasure.

Thank you, M. Peters, for this lush addition to the vampire legend. Please place pen to paper as soon as you are able...I hunger for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Undisclosed Desires: hot, sultry, passionate 18 Jun. 2013
By Beach Bum Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Undisclosed Desires is M. Peters' debut novel, a hybrid vamp/shifter, M/M romance, historical genre mash-up that works, it really does (but then I like genre-bending stuff). Set in the time of the Spanish Inquisition and the Golden Age of Castile, this story is rife with rich historical details, from the layout of the town to the vegetation, the climate, the clothing, the mannerisms, social interaction, the culture, the religion...
If you love historicals, this one will put you in hog heaven from the get-go. But there's way more at work than the temptation of losing oneself in a time and place so very different from our own. Add in the paranormal elements, four characters you will either love or hate, or love-to-hate (and every other combination), and a wickedly torturous dance of passion that will leave you either breathless or groaning in dismay.
Keith is the darkly dangerous, mysterious stranger, a Frenchman who is polite, keeps to himself, and safeguards his secrets with iron will. Javier is young, brash, charming, entitled, arrogant, and brutal (when measured against modern sensibilities). Ophelia is Javier's wife, desperately in love with her husband, so much so she tolerates his abuse, his passive-aggressive nature, his disdain. Amaroq is Keith's companion, confidant and guardian--and a deadly force to be reckoned with.
Undisclosed Desires is an emotional ménage of staggering depth and unimagined consequences. The attraction Keith has for the brash Javier is immediate and all-consuming. Their initial encounter, the clash of swordplay and later the clash of flesh-on-flesh, ignites obsessive passion in Keith and an unholy attraction to things forbidden for Javier. The Spaniard must reconcile the vows he made to Ophelia against his growing need to seek out the strange man who compels his every waking thought.
When Keith reveals his secret to Javier, he withholds a vital piece: what he shares with Amaroq. And that combination of natures makes for some very interesting personality twists in the Frenchman.
The dance of passion unfolds with exquisite slowness, taunting and teasing and luring the reader in the same way it does the protagonists. Much like a sword fight, there's the parry and thrust, the dodge, aggression and defense, attack, counter-attack, drawing first blood.
I bled for Ophelia, despised the arrogant Javier, admired the steadfastness of Amaroq and clutched my ample bosom in agony for Keith and the odd quirk of fate that made him what he was.
Undisclosed Desires is a generous read and you will probably get to the point where you will simply sit down, shut out the modern world and go total immersion (as in up half the night finishing it).
Usually after the string of positives, you'd expect an unequivocal five stars, but... alas, no because there's one little (big actually) thing that keeps this from being a top-tier story: POV head hopping that sometimes stops the story in its tracks early on. The issue smooths out later as one or another character takes center stage (and that's when you decide to hop on board that passion train and ride it to the end).
For POV issues, I must downgrade this to FOUR STARS. But don't let that stop you. Some readers don't give a hoot and can follow along perfectly fine without donning an editor's cap.
Undisclosed Desires is hot, sultry, and passionate (and keep a hanky close by, you'll need it).
