Through good luck and healthy cowardice, Misty has survived the earthquakes that have torn the world apart, but has no skills to speak of. Or so she thinks. She does have blood, and someone must feed the vampire who has offered his protection and strength in exchange for sustenance. Feeding Ivan is a priority, and Misty finally serves a purpose.
But when she awakens tied to his bed, an unwilling gift to Ivan from the townspeople, she discovers he has hungers other than blood. Hungers he expects her to satisfy in the most carnal manner. Under his seductive persuasion, Misty discovers she has the power to sustain Ivan in all ways—while experiencing unspeakable pleasure herself.
Misty has offered herself as a sacrifice for the good of the community. She must let vampire Ivan, who is protecting the town after a major natural disaster, feed from her.
Feeding The Vampire draws you in immediately which is great because this tale is just thirty pages long. It’s told in the first person which I found also helped immerse you into Misty's character. We’re told a little about the natural disaster that seems to have gripped the whole country, and what’s going through her mind as she watches Ivan and knowing what she’s committed to.
The story has a very unique feel to it. Descriptions and pacing are both perfect, the writing smooth, the plot fascinating. It has you wondering what will happen next. And I should add that’s it’s also full of heat and tension.
If you think there are no original vampire stories left to read I encourage you to pick up this one because you won’t be disappointed.
