Ohhh look what I found! A book by Amanda Ashley called “A Darker Dream”, that doesn’t appear to be part of a deeply involved series. It seems to be a historical romance with vampires…best of both worlds!
It goes something like this: Rhianna is sold by her father (due to extreme poverty) to a dark stranger (Rayven – a vampire). He ends up treating her like a queen (but he has that wonderful vampire angst that won’t dare to allow himself to love)… oooooh sounds like an easy one night stand of fun (reading that is ;))
