REVIEW
Every now and then I fancy a short read, and I think it’s a great way of trying out authors new to you without committing to reading a full-length book.
The cover is quite striking, the golden looking face of a woman with blood on one side of it. The book is described as a novelette, which I do agree it is a shorter novella/novelette.

The main character is Marigold Jordan who is what I would describe as a servant to a rather prominent Master Vampire called Rhett. As the blurb says, and Marigold has full intentions of it happening. Marigold has found a strong, powerful master, she already serves him well, running his errands during the daytime whilst he sleeps and then being at his side to arrange his every whim and order as quickly and efficiently as possible. Marigold does all this in the hope that one day she will die. That Rhett will bite her and turn her into a vampire herself! To Marigold being a vampire is the ultimate gift, to her vampires are strong, and can have anything they want.
It will soon be the one night that Masters actually grant their servants, the honour of being bitten, killed and turned into a vampire, but things don’t go according to her original plan. Getting in the midst of two vampire lovers having a tiff, delivering a gift, then being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

My immediate thoughts upon finishing this novelette were simply that it had been a
good novella, that I would be interested in more books with Mari in them, or set in this universe.
Summing up. . . it’s a short enough book to be read whilst sat with a cuppa, so perfect for a bus, car, train journey. I would be interested in reading more books set in this type of world, and I will be taking a look at other books by this author too.
