Reviews Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness, #2)

  • Miranda
    The second book in the Rulers of Darkness series captivated me more than the first. I really liked Dimitri and Kerstyn. Although everything between them happened amazingly fast, their struggles were great. Plenty of action, lots of drama, and a few tortured souls.

    I loved the first book of this series. It was set in the Regency period and the vampire King Dorian was sooooo alpha and sexy. This new installment did not wow me but I like this series and will read book 3 when it comes out. Weaknesses...The hero is vampire Dimitri Arsov. He is the last remaining pure vampire and has come back from the dead. No, he was never dead but just taking a 400 year nap because that's when his mate would be at humping age...

    This one I'm going to have to give only 2 and half stars. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there was just not enough there between Dimitri & Kerestyn. Everything about their meeting, to their "relationship" to their union was just too easy. Way too fast. Too simple. And not believable or even emotionally charged in my opinion.Now I loved Gannon (would not mind knowing more about him) I'm very intrigued with Gabriel and the obvious opening f...
    My rating: 4.5 out of 5 starsWith a growl, Dimitri placed his feet flat on the bed and thrust his hips up, impaling her hard and deep. "Suck," he hissed.***Please note, this book was gifted to me by the author***Chapter 27. Once you've read this book, you will know exactly what I mean. No really, trust me on this one...First and foremost, I would like to thank Ms. Greene for giving me to the opportunity to read and review this second installment ...
  • Jonel
    I loved how Greene layered the emotional component of the story on top of the paranormal and romantic ones. This is a complex tale that will engage you in many ways. At the same time it’s still fast paced and fun. The author’s exquisitely vivid descriptions bring this story to life in a big way. It is positively sinful! Greene also continues to develop her unique concept of the vampire world without shattering our preconceived notion. It all ...
  • Nadene (Totally Addicted to Reading)
    Caressed by Night by Amanda J. Greene is the second book in the Rulers of Darkness series. Each book can be read on their own as they feature a different couple. However, for background information and introduction to the other rulers of darkness you would need to read the books in order. I enjoyed the first book, Caressed by Moonlight so I hoped this installment would yield the same or even more enjoyment. Ms. Greene did not disappoint.The setti...

    Posted At: Riverina Romantics My Rating: 4 out of 5 *Heat Rating: 4 out of 5 ♡You’re dead. Everyone believes you’re dead. So they won’t be too surprised when you come back to life, right?Dimitri is the last living pureblood vampire, believed to be dead at the hands of a corrupt and tyrannical clan leader. But he’s not. He’s been plotting his return for centuries, having a score to settle with the fool who crossed him. There is nothing...
  • WildAboutBones
    "Sin, danger and sex all in one" is how Kerstyn describes Dimitri. This second in the Rulers of Darkness series is even better than the first. Vampires and witches take center stage in Greene's world (but shifters, currently off screen, are coming out of the background in future books). There is a lot of simmering chemistry between the characters as well as romance.While the first book had a historical setting, this one fast forwards to present ...
  • Jennifer
    I truly enjoyed the first book in the Rulers of Darkness series, Caressed by Moonlight. So I jumped at the chance to be apart of Ms. Greene's blog tour for the second book. Caressed by Night has a different feel to it since it is set in modern times in Las Vegas verses Caressed by Moonlight's 1800s, London setting. But it has all the same hotness. And you get to see a little of Dorian and Victoria from Caressed by Moonlight which I really liked g...
  • Sally
    Amanda J. Greene's Caressed by Night is the second book in her Rulers of Darkness series, following her scintilating debut, Caressed by Moonlight. Whether you're a lover of paranormal romances, or simply a romantic at heart, Amanda knows how to caress just the right emotions in the read, drawing you deeper and deeper into her story, and entangling you with some rather unique twists so that you not only can't let go . . . you won't want to.While I...
  • Kelly
    I was suitably impressed with book 1 in this series and the way it slipped paranormal beasties into a historical romance setting. This book propels us into the present and manages to keep the tension that I enjoyed in the first book alive and humming. It helps that Dimitri is a warrior of the old world who has managed to integrate himself nicely into the present. It also helps that we get to see how characters from book 1 have weathered the years...

  • Sonja
    I'm obviously the minority here because I did not love this book. In fact, I was pretty bored with most of it and just wanted to get to the big fight at the end. My favorite parts were the ones where Dimitri and Kerstyn were NOT together. I just did not like their relationship at all. It was ridiculously unbelievable and mostly because of the speed at which it all happened. Hell, they couldn't even be in the same freakin' room together for two se...
  • Tasnima1329
    I really liked this book at the start. Then the story like just became boring. I lost interest in this book right around the time Krysten finds out Dimitri's secret. Cos then there was nothing really to hide. I mean after the vampire secret came out you'd think a really old vampire would get that there is litterally nothing else to hide from his mate.Truth be told Dimitri was a REALLY good make lead. His character was loyal and honorable, so much...
  • Marishka
    I was sad this book wasn't set in historical times like the first in the series, it kinda threw me since I though I was starting an historical PNR series. But even though it was set in modern times I still really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next.
  • V.A. Dold
    With Amanda being a fresh face in the published book world, I as a seasoned reader hoped her first amazing book Caressed by Moonlight was not an anomaly. I am truly excited to say Amanda does not disappoint! Her new addition to the Rulers of Darkness series Caressed by Night is as captivating as the first book.Amanda has such talent when it comes to her character development. Her characters have histories and have experienced joy, pain, struggle ...

  • VampireNovelFan
    Starts off strong, but it loses steam One benefit for most vampires is that they usually live pretty darn long. Amanda Greene’s Caressed by Moonlight, Book 1 of the Rulers of Darkness series, was a delightful period novel focusing on vampire Dorian Vlakhos and his human love, Victoria Kingston. Fast-forward a good couple of centuries and though those two are alive and well, Dmitri Arsov and Kerstyn Ingmar are the central characters in this nove...

    I have wanted to read this book for months as it has glowing reviews on Goodreads. While it was a full length book, it didn’t take overly long to read. We meet Kerstyn Ingmar as she leaves a club and is rescued by a dark, sexy man. While she is attracted, he bundles her into a cab and sends her home. When arriving home she has an argument with her roommate and is kicked out. No where else to turn too, another friends suggests she stay with some...

    Caressed by Night by Amanda Greene is the second novel in the Rulers of Darkness Series and I have to say it’s another fabulous book. It’s a little different from the first novel, because while Caressed by Moonlight was set the 1800’s, this novel was set in the modern day; but it definitely had the same vibe.The main characters Dimitri Arsov and Kerstyn Ingmar are an amazing couple. Dimitri is one of the first vampires ever made and was tho...

    Caressed by Night is the second book in Amanda J. Greene’s Rulers of Darkness series. Like the first book in the series, Caressed by Moonlight, Caressed by Night is filled with unforgettable characters that jump off the page and grab hold of your heart. When I first started reading Caressed by Night, I was surprised to see that it took place in present day since the first book in the series was set in the 1800’s. Amanda Greene has really show...

    Whenever I throughly enjoy a first novel in a series – I’m worried the author won’t be able to keep it up for the next book.That’s not a worry I needed to have with regards to Carressed by Night. Amanda J. Greene has more than delivered with this second installment of the Rulers of Darkness.This book is different from most vampire novels in terms of timing. I’ve always wondered why vampires who often live up to thousands of years always...

    All review can be found also on my blog at http://vampireswerewolvesfairiesohmy....My Rating: 4.5This story takes place in the present, 150+ years after the first book. Dimitri, one of the original vampire kings, faked his own death over 400 years ago. He did this to help the other vampire kings find their true mates. When Dimitri was turned vampire, he was also cursed by a Shaw witch, a peaceful witch tribe until they are threatened. With the cu...
