Description by Publisher:
A Highland warrior battles to reclaim his birthright in the first of a new series filled with seduction, revenge, and soul-stirring passion…
They call him the Beast—a hardened mercenary whose heart seems as cold as his icy blue gaze. They do not know his true name: Niall Braewick, son of the Laird of Kincaid. It has been years since he escaped into the forest the night his father was murdered. Now he has returned, ablaze with a vengeful hunger. He will gain the MacClaren chief’s trust, gather his clan, and take back his lands. And take the MacClaren’s daughter as well…
Though he pulled her from the river, saving her life, Elspeth has been warned to keep her distance from her father’s hired warrior. He is a barbarian—a shame, as he is far more compelling than the lechers and fools competing for her dowry. Little does she know that, like the castle itself, she is a prize Niall intends to claim…but will he extract blood for blood and possess what is his, or will his enemy’s beautiful, innocent daughter tempt him to forsake his dream of conquest?
This is a new author to me on the scene although previously published as Lily Dalton, the RITA Nominated author of Regency romances. I was pleasantly surprised by this debut novel in this new genre for her.
Our Hero Niall is a mercenary by trade but is the son of the former laird of clan Kincaid. His identity is a secret to all but those who know him best. Elspeth, our Heroine is the daughter of the man Niall holds responsible for his families deaths.
This is the debut novel of this author and book #1 of the series. I can hardly wait for book #2 in this series.
I gave this one a 4.5 star rating.
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy. Despite his decadence and his intimidating intelligence, she could see that he needed help. Her help. Because suddenly the only thing that made sense to her was…The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie.

Beneath the glitter of dazzling nineteenth century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil…
Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long ago taken control of the world.
In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake. But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous moonlit streets, Victoria’s heart is torn between London’s most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her dark, dangerous duty.
And when she comes face-to-face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make a choice between duty and love.

Praise for The Gardella Vampire Hunters Series
“The Rest Falls Away, Gleason’s publishing debut…turns vampire stories–and romances–on their ear with a decidedly dark, decidedly unsentimental Regency heroine who stakes the undead with the best of them.” — Detroit Free Press
“The undead rise to great heights through Gleason’s phenomenal storytelling. She creates a chilling world with the perfect atmosphere of fear and sexual tension.” — Romantic Times
“Gleason keeps upping the ante with each novel, weaving the characters around her readers with each engaging conversation and narrative, every stage set of all the appropriate gothic gloom and melting beauty. — Book Fetish
“…Above all, the writing is what recommends this book most. Gleason’s writing is sharp and taut, which makes for excellent action sequences, and a plot that travels quickly from the start. The writing strength alone gives me ample reassurance that this potentially plot-heavy series is in the right hands. I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment.” – Smart Bitches Love Trashy Books

Digital List Price $0.99
FREE For a Limited Time at:
Margaret Seymour is bored by the stifling constraints of society dictating her behavior as a debutante in search of a husband. Her prospects are promising by the standards of London society, yet, not one of them causes her heart to flutter, or her head to fill with scintillating, forbidden fantasies. Those feelings are reserved for Camden Rycroft, Duke of Avonleah—a man who isn’t even aware of her existence.
While attending a scandalous Vauxhall Gardens masquerade, Margaret finds herself in the duke’s arms. His promise of a night of pleasure is tempting, but is it worth it when Avonleah is a known rake notorious for his short attention span and avoidance of marriage?
Camden Rycroft is intrigued by the masked vixen he encounters in the Gardens. After one night with her leaves him hungry for more, his desire for her turns into a fiery obsession. Despite the scandal that could ensue from their affair, he finds himself unable to extract himself from a situation destined to end in pain. When faced with losing Margaret to a potential husband, will he rise to the occasion, or risk living without her?
Interview with the Author
Q: So, what makes the Scandalous Ballroom Encounters series special?
A: There’s nothing Regency romance readers love more than a good scandal! As a lover of both romance and erotica set in the Regency era, I really wanted to put everything I love about the genres into one series: rakish dukes, innocent debutantes, daring spinsters, seductive widows, and the glittering backdrop of London. Each book features a different couple (or threesome), and can be read alone, however, the characters often cross over into the other books and make appearances.
Q: Why should readers give these books a try?
A: These books are decadent, sexy, and emotional. The characters are relatable and engaging, and their scandalous behavior will having you turning the pages to find out what they might do next!
Q: How many books will be in the complete series?
A: I am not certain. At the moment, I have 4 books planned. But who knows? There’s no shortage of scandal to be found among the members of le bon ton .
About The Author:
Victoria Vale has written over two dozen Romance and Young Adult novels under various pseudonyms. As a lover of erotic romance, she enjoys nothing more than a sexy hero paired with a sassy heroine, flavored with a dash of spice and lots of heat. A wife and mother of three, she enjoys reading (of course), cooking, sewing … and other activities that aren’t appropriate for inclusion in a biography.
