    1. It's a rare thing for me to find a book that truly surprises me. I read a lot of books from the same genre and they tend to follow patterns. And though I enjoy many of them thoroughly and may find a minor surprise here or there, I'm rarely as wrong about a book as I was about this one.I had lukewarm feelings for The Vampire Voss, but I forged on and found I really liked The Vampire Dimitri. The two books were similar in tone and seemed to set up a pattern I just expected the third installment to [...]


    2. Ok, I'm not sure if I did a good thing by finishing this book or I should have put it in my DNF shelf and completely forget about it. What started as a slow, disappointing book, only managed to turn in a frustrating one and it's a pity because this was a series I loved:(Vampire Narcise, the heroine, is the sister of Cesar Moldavi, the vilain of the trilogy. In the previous books we saw her as a couple with the vampir hunter Chas Woodmore but surprisingly in the second book, we learned that there [...]


    3. Coleen Gleason’s Vampire Narcise is one of the rare romance novels that left me emotionally and physically exhausted. Ms. Gleason is bold in her plot development and angst. The primary characters – Narcise Moldavi, Giordan Cale, and Chas Woodmore are set on a collision course filled with peril and tragedy. This is the 3rd book in the Regency Draculia series. It could be read as a standalone but I would not recommend it. The story fills elements of the plot and timeline from the previous book [...]


    4. I was blown away by the third installment of the Regency Draculia series by Colleen Gleason. The Vampire Narcise was an emotional roller coaster through hell for both the characters and reader alike.Even though this is the third novel in a series I think it could be read as a stand-alone. With the first two novels; The Vampire Voss, I was so-so with. The Vampire Dimitri was better but the way the story was set up there for book three, and the pattern that those novels followed, I thought The Vam [...]


    5. This is a Quickie Review.

She seemed spoiled, arrogant, and quite frankly, unintrig [...]


    6. This, the third in Gleason's Regency Draculia series, has "vampirs" both "turned" by Lucifer and "made" by other vampirs who are thus much weaker than the "turned" vampirs. And this is not all that is different with Gleason's vampires - each has an individual weakness will paralyze them with fear, making them helpless. A very nice variation to the vampire lore - as are Gleason's other inventive differences.This paranormal romance, featuring as the central female character Narcise, is filled with [...]


    7. I'm calling this a strong 3.269435Maybe I should have waited longer between Dimitri and Narcise. Because Dimitri, oh Dimitri. It was by far the strongest book. Maybe I would have preferred this more form Giordans POV. I have no idea. I liked Narcise. I understood her. I think the transitions were too jarring for me, the jumpy timeline was intrusive. it seemed every break was one week later. two weeks later, ten years later, etc. It just seemed choppy and was really a bit annoying to me. I really [...]


    8. Terzo volume della serie Regency Draculia. Basato stavolta su di una donna,Narcise Moldavi,conosciuta in precedenza. Lei è la sorella di Cesar Moldavi,un altro Draculiano feroce e privo di scrupoli. Una sorta di vero e proprio mostro. Lei è una giovane donna, bellissima e spregiudicata. Sembra nata per affascinare tutti e proprio per questa sua capacità è sempre stata un'arma letale nelle mani del fratello. Finché si innamora di Giordan Cale. Ma questi,dopo averle giurato amore eterno, la t [...]


    9. «Ho fatto tutto per te, Narcise. Posso affrontare qualsiasi cosa sapendo che dall'altra parte ci sei tu.»Nei volumi precedenti il personaggio di Narcise aveva brillato per la sua antipatia (pur facendomi anche pena, perché è chiaro che nelle mani del malvagio fratello vive una vita di abusi e violenza, nel suo libro ancora più descritta), perciò dire che non ero entusiasta all'idea di leggere la sua storia sarebbe un'eufemismo XD Visto che però è l'ultimo della trilogia mi son fatta cora [...]


    10. I think this series has been getting progressively better with each of the books. And that's saying something because I've enjoyed all of them in different ways. However, this one was the most emotionally charged of the bunch and the things that our main characters had to go through to end up where they did were equal parts hard to read about and completely captivating.Giordan and Narcise's relationship was fraught with difficulties from the first. I loved how Giordan saw what he wanted and foun [...]


    11. The Vampire Narcise was such a disappointment and it was real struggle to finish it. I liked Giordan in the other previous books in the Draculia series, but he just seemed off in his own book.Narcise was just bad through and through. What an unlikeable heroine. I get that she suffered over a century at the hands of her brother, but she was to dumb when she needed to be smart, and too proud and she should be more humble.Besides that, the story kept jumping in time, it was hard to keep up or to co [...]


    12. A blogger friend, Jennifer, from “Abundance of Books” book blog, did a review of the Vampire Voss a few months ago, and after reading her review and chatting with her about the book, I was intrigued. I liked the idea of it being a Regency Romance (until I fell in love with UF/PNR, Regency was my favorite Genre), and a Vampire story. Just the mash-up of those two genre’s made my heart go pitty-pat. Gleason had written a series set in Regency London that was about Vampire Hunters and now had [...]


    13. Review provided by Black Lagoon Reviews:The Vampire Narcise is the third installment in the Regency Draculia series by Colleen Gleason, a series that has had some very notable up and downs for me. While this left me hesitant to actually read this novel, I felt that after coming so far with the characters and the author I needed to see how this final chapter ended. Thankfully, I was glad that I did as this novel steps away slightly from the lives of the familiar Voss and Dimitri from the previous [...]


    14. I feel like I should stand up and give this series a standing ovation! Reading the last book in the Regency Draculia leaves me feeling slightly conflicted. On the one hand the book was so good and I thoroughly enjoyed every second, and on the other hand I feel so bereft now that the series is finished. SUMMARYAnother pre-release review so all you are unforuntately getting is the summary: Regency England stands defiant against Napoleon. But battles among men mean little to those who live forever [...]


    15. Wasn't a lover of this one. Maybe just don't like the Vampire ones. Took me awhile to get through it but I always finish a book when I start one.


    16. My review is cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed: joyfullyreviewed/new-rSince the moment she became Dracule, Narcise Moldavi has been imprisoned, used, and traded by her brother, Cezar. For years, she simply existed, forced to fight for the right to remain unmolested. Then Narcise met Giordan Cale, a Dracule unlike any other she met before. Yet, just as Narcise felt herself coming to life once more, Giordan betrayed her in the worst manner possible.Ten years later, freedom is in Narcise’s gras [...]


    17. This review will be a first for me because I usually go out of my way to avoid spoilers, and in this case I absolutely cannot help myself, but it's all in a good way. I certainly won't reveal the main plot twists or ruin the book for anyone but I wanted to give fair warning that I might discuss areas that I usually avoid. If you want to avoid these details in any way then I will now provide a quick and to the point review: The Vampire Narcise is by far the best of the Regency Draculia and I'm in [...]


    18. Narcise has been captive since her brother tricked her into turning Dracule. She's been subjected to horrors and constantly has to win sword battles for the right to sleep free of the men who force themselves on her. She's kept her heart in an impenetrable fortress, but all that changes when Giordan Cale wins her over. He vows to save her from her fate, but complications ensue causing a heart breaking betrayal that leaves Narcise in shambles. When Chas Woodmore falls into her lap, she knows she [...]


    19. Originally reviewed on Romancing the Darkside:romancingthedarkside/2011/Colleen Gleason saved the best for last in this series! Being the only female Dracule in the series, Narcise's character had me intrigued from the moment she was mentioned so I knew her story was going to be exciting and emotional and as usual, Colleen Gleason delivers!Turned vampire because of her brother Cezar's obsession with her, Narcise has since lived as a prisoner and as "entertainment" to his vile friends. She must f [...]


    20. Lucifer offered some men or woman a curse/gift in a dream, what they didn’t realizing is what they were signing up for until they woke up the next morning with a mark on their back, the need for blood and a personal Asthenia “an Achilles heel or vulnerability”.From the moment Narcise has been tricked into turning Draculia, she has been under her brother’s Cezar control and held captive to serve her brother’s needs. In order to be free from the men around her brother who force themselve [...]


    21. This book was so different in tone and narrative from Voss and Dimitri, it kind of threw me for a bit. But I soon got into the flow and time line of the story.Probably my only complaint is the book stays exclusively in Narcis POV, which is correct, the book is titled with her name. I prefer the hero POV I admit, and was dying to know more of Giordan Cale's thoughts. Or of Chas, the vampire hunter.Talk about your tragic hero, my gut clenched for Cale. It is hard to review without giving away too [...]


    22. Full disclosure, just right off, I loved this book! By the end, I loved it almost as much as I'd loved The Vampire Dimitri almost. It's well written, better than the other two, I'd say, and the story is well developed. Considering, that their story is partly told, from other points of view, before the book even begins because it's a trilogy, it could not have been better. I would say, however, that even if you've not read the first two books, you could read this one (or any of them, really) as s [...]


    23. The Vampire Narcise by Colleen Gleason was a hard book for me to finish because I have had to put it down many times and take a break from the story. This novel is darker than the first two books in this series. The villain, Cezar Moldavi, is the epitome of evil in this novel. He truly made me emotionally upset when it came to his injurious plans he uses to manipulate those around him for his own stygian purposes. He has the true mind of a miscreant. Add Ceazar’s distorted physique and persona [...]


    24. I received this E-ARC courtesy of NetGalley for reviewColleen Gleason's The Vampire Narcise was probably my favorite out of the Regency Draculia series. Narcise being the only female vamp that we've come to know through the other books had quite an interesting story and the overall story arc that was weaving through the first two is resolved by its end. Which was surprising, yet gratifying.Narcise is under her evil brother's thumb and has been for some time. He uses and abuses her in the most cr [...]


    25. This is the third book in Gleason’s Regency Vampire series, but it differs dramatically from the first two. This one is much darker, more violent and emotionally wrenching than the first two. For someone like me, lover of dark UF, this was a good thing . This book can be read as a stand alone.I love the unique world Gleason has created. The Dracule are descendants of Vlad Tepes, who made a deal with Lucifer for immorality. This deal allowed Lucifer to visit any descendant of Vlad’s in their [...]


    26. Die Drakule Frau Narcise wurde zur Kämpferin ausgebildet und versklavt von ihrem Bruder Cezar, dem mächtigsten und gefährlichsten aller Drakule Vampire, um ihm und seinen Kumpanen als Unterhaltung zu dienen. Wie für einen Gladiator der Tod, gilt für sie bei einer Niederlage im Zweikampf, dass ihr Gegner ihren Körper für eine Nacht besitzen darf. Es ist kein Wunder, dass Narcise nicht imstande ist, einem Mann zu vertrauen nicht einmal Giordan Cale, dem gut aussehenden Vampir, der gelobt h [...]


    27. Narcise non è una Draculiana come le altre, lei è il giocattolo di suo fratello stupro e violenza sono il suo pane quotidiano, intorno al suo cuore ha costruito una spessa corazza perché nulla la possa più ferire, fino a quando l’incontro con Giordan Cale non fa crollare le sue ultime speranze di sopravvivenza.Non ci sono storia, la Gleason ci voleva dare erotismo e lo fa a piene mani: ogni singola scena è intrisa di passione ed emozioni. Come se non bastasse poi la trama è intessuta con [...]


    28. First paragraph: Romania 1673The Estate of the Voivodina of MoldaviaHe couldn’t take his eyes off her.She was so beautiful, with her sparkling amethyst-sapphire eyes and swirl of dark hair. Her skin, so pure and perfect, alabaster and rose. Her neck, graceful and slender; her curves, so lush and feminine.With these opening lines, the obsession of Cezar Moldovia with his sister Narcise is revealed. I can't believe I waited all of this time to finally pick up this book and finish off the series [...]


    29. Not impressed. I was very disappointed in it. I was expecting this amazing book with twist and turns like the other two, but this one fell very short. Here is the synopsis:Skilled in the seduction of men, both mortal and immortal, Narcise Moldavi is the greatest weapon in her twisted brother’s war among the Dracule. Until she falls for Giordan Cale.Her first searing encounter with Giordan seals their fierce connection for their eternal lives. But Giordan’s vow to help Narcise escape her brot [...]


    30. Received from NetGalleyOverall Rating: 3.50Story Rating: 3.25Character Rating: 3.75Note: I enjoyed this series from Colleen Gleason. It was a nice mix of Historical and Paranormal Romance. The important thing to note if you pick up the series: the timelines overlap so you get some stories from different POV's in different books. I think it actually worked well but unless you know you might feel a little lost.What I Loved: The Vampire Narcise wrapped up the Regency Draculia trilogy very well by a [...]
