In the Service of the King!

Kael, Warrior King of the Vampires, loathes the Night of the Proffering. He needs the blood of either his mate or a human virgin to maintain his strength, but hasn't enjoyed the ritual since he lost his mate centuries ago. Kael doesn't want a new companion, yet his resolve is tested when he lays eyes on his new offering, Shayla McKinnon. He is drawn to Shayla's beauty and poise...and the submission she offers. She is eager to give him anything he wishes, including her innocence, to please him. Will Kael give in to their overwhelming desire--even if it means risking Shayla's life?

Thanks for reading,

Oh my! The reviews are pouring in!

5 STARS from Sizzling Hot Book Reviews! "Shayla and Kael share an amazing amount of passion for each other. Their chemistry is off the charts....ITSOTK was just plain fantastic...The raw emotions developed in these characters creates a very worthwhile story. Normally I find novellas to be lacking in something, but In the Service of the King left me fulfilled as a reader....In the Service of the King should be read by anyone ready for a quick blossoming romance full of heat and fire!"

5 STARS from Book Monster Reviews! "I LOVED this story.  Once I started it, I could not stop reading it until I was finished.  Even though it was a short story, I felt that it was not rushed.  I loved the chemistry between Kael and Shayla.  I also loved Liam, Kael's right hand warrior and the only person close to Kael.  I hope that he will get a story of his own.  My only complaint is that I wish this was not a short story because I would have loved to read a full length novel of Kael and Shayla!"

4 STARS from Book Savvy Babe! "What I really loved about this novella was the vampire culture....In the Service of the King is a quick read, but the story is well written, and the stage is set for future stories set within this world.  I would love to read more about this world in the future.  Paranormal Romance fans, I do recommend reading this novella."

4.5 STARS & a Silver Award from GraveTells! "Whether you’re already a fan of Laura Kaye’s passionate, heart-wrenching style or a new reader looking for your next fix, you absolutely must read In the Service of the King! Laura is fairly new to the PNR scene and has already garnered several awards, both for her books and on her merit as an author, so come see what all the fuss is about and move this smokin’ hot novella right to the top of your TBR list!"

4 STARS from Cocktails & Books! "This was another interesting twist on a vampire story....amazingly written by Laura Kaye (as if she wouldn't) with wonderful characters that I've come to look for in her books."

3.5 STARS from Books and Things! "I thought this was a very interesting set up for a paranormal erotica. I really enjoyed Kael who is brooding but caring hottie....You really get a "feel" *snicker* for the handsome and tortured brute. *sigh*....If you are looking for a fun short vampire erotica, try this one. I think you'll enjoy it!"

Aweee, Laura, I shared this with my coworker at lunch yesterday, and this morning, she tells me, "OMG Ashley, I'm 67% through it, and I couldn't wait till my husband got home last night, he was very happy afterward!" so awesome to introduce people to your work, as that friend has read all you've written.
