My Viking Vampire (Book #1)


Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.

Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.

Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.

Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?


Excerpt: 18+

I was awash with sensations. His mouth made love to my breasts. There was no other way to describe it. He licked and sucked and nipped until I could feel my pulse pounding in my sex. It was driving me wild.

When he finally closed his mouth over one of my nipples, I gasped. Each tug sent ribbons of fire coursing through my body straight to my wet, needy core. He switched to the other and used his fingers to roll the wet nipple back and forth, exerting just enough pressure to make me start panting.

My back arched up, thrusting my breasts closer to his luxurious mouth. He nipped and pulled at the other nipple, not giving a second of reprieve. I pushed my head back and fisted handfuls of the satiny comforter, biting back a groan. I couldn’t remember the last time I was this turned on.

Warmth flooded across every inch of my skin. Full-on body blush.

He shifted so that his shaft nudged at my mound while his mouth delved up and down the lines of my throat. “Look at me.” The command rumbled from deep in his chest.

I couldn’t deny him and I opened my eyes again just as he captured my mouth, plunging his tongue deep. He leaned to the side, resting on an elbow and sliding one palm beneath my head. His grip on my skull was firm and he used the leverage to kiss even harder.

His other hand slid down the left side of my body, sending shivers of exhilaration straight to my nerve endings. I rolled my shoulders, wiggling my arms free, and wrapped my hands around his bulging ones, giving myself a little bit of leverage to push back into his all-consuming kiss, wanting to give back as much as he was giving me.

My Review: 4.5/5 Stars

Bailey Ross is on the run from an abusive ex and a djinn. While on the move she meets a vampire and Protector of the town Sanctuary, Erik Thorson. If she doesn’t go with Erik where he can protect her, she might not live to see morning.

This story is told in Bailey’s point of view, though the last chapter is in Erik’s. I wish it would have switched back and forth though. Bailey Is a strong woman surviving what her ex did to her. She didn’t let it slow her down. Though she has her moments where something triggers her back to the past, but she didn’t let it cripple her.

The town of Sanctuary is one filled with paranormals. They have Protectors in place so that they protect the town for anyone who wants to do them harm. As Bailey learns more about Erik and the town she is intrigued. She want’s to stay, but she fears she will bring harm to them.

I liked how the story flowed together and everybody worked together to keep the town and Bailey safe. Once Bailey learned of her destiny I didn’t like how they tried to push it n her though. It sort of felt high handed to me. I know they needed her, but at least give her time to get used to it. Other than that, all the characters were very likeable.

I can’t wait to read about the twin dragon brothers, Miles and Erik. OMG!

She also makes sure to watch as many action and adventure movies as possible. The more exciting the better. Yippee-Ki-Yay… If you don’t know the end of that phrase, then you probably don’t like the same movies.

She enjoys reading romance in all genres, but especially paranormal. Her favorite book is ACHERON by Sherrilyn Kenyon. But really, if it has a ‘Happily Ever After’, she’s on board!

Krystal writes stories full of action, snark, magick, a little bit of humor, and heart-felt emotion. If you are looking for leisurely-paced sweet romance, her books are probably not for you. However, for those looking for a magickal ride, filled with adventure, passion, and just a hint of humor. Welcome home.
