    4.5 starsWhewwwwwwww weeeeeee This book was h h h hottttt Claim is Lady D and Dev s story which is set about 60 years from when we first met them in book 2 Daniella is of a gentle type of vampire in regards to what we ve seen throughout this series Dev is a bushman, who has loved and lost what was most dear to him The two meet and instant fireworks erupt Dev is hotness on a stick The way he saved Dani from her attackers just blew me away His way of protecting Dani and ensuring her safety till the end was fabulous and his anger towards Dani marking him made the story even intense This book had a lot of troubling issues, which made the story not predictable in any way The introduction of the hounds children vamps was chilling and extremely creepy, but such a great storyline Dani s immediate attachment to Dev s haunting past and nightmares was beautiful I loved how she wanted Dev to release all of his anger frustration hate on her because she could simply take it for him She was truly a force to be reckoned with when it came time to reclaim her station and when making Dev submit to her sexually This read like a true prequel since we see Lyssa and how much of a mentor and mother figure she is to Dani We definitely see her softer side while Dani struggles with her crush on Dev It is quite obvious that Hill has a thing for red haired men And now I do too Next up I gotta date with a copper haired vamp named Lord Mason yippeeeeee

    I went into this one not expecting to like it as much as the first two But in some ways I really found it interesting.I love the way you rake my skinI feel the hate you place insideI need to get your voice out of my headCause I m that guy you ll never findI think you know all of the rulesThere s no expressions on your faceI m hope that some day you will let me goRelease me from my dirty cage Control, Puddle of MuddFor Danny and Devlin, the attraction was there right from the beginning But there was no destiny driving them together If they were going to make it work, they had to do it on their own.This is the first time we see what happens when a Vampire pushes her Servant too far Not very pretty Fortunately, things works out in the end.

    Joey W Hill is a wonderful story teller I enjoyed the Australian Outback setting the Aussie Vernacular, even some of the historical moments she touched on made me remember Aussie history Considering she is not Australian I thought she did a wonderful portrayal I like the way Joey writes a love story, she seems to touch on the mental level not just the physical of the two main characters I can t say I m really big on red headed characters but she does describe Dev as being extremely manly and handsome with an added bonus Wink Lady Danny is different to the main stream Vampires and thinks a little on a humanistic level which is not the norm in this series I couldn t put this book down as there was a lot going on This book had me laugh in parts with the Aussie Vernacular and their was one section in the book that made my eyes tear up.

    GraveTells original review recap A drifter haunted by a brutal past, Devlin is a bushman who lives a lonely life on the edge in the Australian Outback At the tender young age of 200 years old, Lady Daniela, a rare born vampire who is heiress to her own province in Oz, is sought after by scheming male vampires trying to increase their own standing who are willing to kill or viciously torture her to achieve their goals Danny has never had a fully marked human servant and Dev willingly submits to no one, but their unlikely emergency partnership could take them on an emotional journey neither is prepared for.Title A Vampire s ClaimSeries The Vampire Queen series book 3Author Joey W HillProminent Characters Lady Daniela, DevlinRecommended reader age 18 Sexual content level heavy and explicit vulgar language typical of erotica, includes group scenes and alternate sexual partnerings This review is spoiler free Read on with confidence Thoughts This book is number three in the series, but it could actually be read before the first two novels The Vampire Queen s Servant and The Mark of the Vampire Queen It s set in the 1950s, a good 5 decades before Lyssa and Jacob s books, and tells the story of Dev and Lady D, both of whom we met in the second book, The Mark of the Vampire Queen.Dev s backstory is violent and haunting, and his journey through the emotional minefield of becoming a fully marked and willing human servant to Danny is uneasy at best This book delves into the psychology of war and loss, and doesn t pull any punches when it comes to the uncomfortably adventurous potential of the sex scenes At his lady s insistence, Dev uses their tenuous connection as his emotional outlet, while she fights her own battle against dealing with her feelings for Dev and his proper place in her life.I thoroughly enjoyed the second book and the second half of the first , but I had a tough time getting into this one due to its intense gravity This is no flighty love story It is raw and intense, gratifying and punishing, violent and seductive While Dev is pushed past some of his natural straight male sexual boundaries, I feel that some readers will be right there with him, part enthralled and part horrified at the dark places Danny takes him.I really enjoyed getting to see Thomas and his interaction with Lyssa, as well as Alistair and Nina, the parents of born vampire Brian from the first two books Personally, I m not into survival stories or rugged treks across dangerous wild territories, so the setting in this novel was a little off putting for me While I loved Dev s personality and the way he competently handles so many diverse situations, I just did not like reading about the Australian Outback and the woes of never ending mosquitoes and other nasty creepy crawlies The sex scenes are hot, so no complaint there although it s going to be pretty hard to surpass the awesomeness that is the Council gathering in The Mark of the Vampire Queen , but they are explicit and vulgarly worded, so readers who are new to erotica will have a shock or two in store until they get used to the cadence of the writing.Memorable quotes So complex, the relationship between vampire and servant We re not pets We re human servants to vampires, and it s a relationship like nothing you ve ever had in your life Tell yourself you love her or don t love her It doesn t matter If you are meant to be her full servant, you are bound together in a a way that would tear out your heart and half the things in your gut if you decided to walk away from it If you like A Vampire s Claim of The Vampire Queen seriesIf you enjoyed A Vampire s Claim and the rest of the Vampire Queen series for its hard hitting emotional impact, you may also like the Black Dagger Brotherhood series starting with Dark Lover by J.R Ward and the Psy Changeling series starting with Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh Although the Psy Changeling series features shapeshifters and psychics rather than vampires, the relationships between the characters are intense and the bonds extremely strong Both of these series will make you laugh, cry, and just about everything in between Highly recommended reads.If you liked A Vampire s Claim for its heavy sexual content and explicivity, check out the Meredith Gentry series starting with A Kiss of Shadows and the Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton The Anita Blake series starts with Guilty Pleasures , but the erotica aspect doesn t become the dominant component of the stories until Narcissus in Chains book 10 You can t really safely start halfway through the series, but there are a few wikis and fansites out there that will give you an overview if you choose to skip the horror focused first half.Final thoughts Overall excellent character development and plotlines, and seriously intense relationships both between the characters and growth within themselves If not for my city girl aversion to all things unsophisticated, I would probably have scored this one much higher As it is, I enjoyed it but have no plans to read it again from start to finish maybe just some snippets here and there grin Rating 4.25 fangs Bite it Related links The Vampire Queen series website The Black Dagger Brotherhood series website The Psy Changeling series website The Merry Gentry Anita Blake series websites

    Reviewed on Reading Lark fell in love with Lady Lyssa and Jacob in the first two books of this series, and I have to admit that I was quite sad when I discovered that the third book was not about them When I realized it was about Lady Daniela and Devlin, I was somewhat mollified I had enjoyed their part in the second book of the series Their story is something of a prequel to the series, taking place a good number of years before the setting of the first two books to show us how Dev became Lady D s full servant We are taken to the Aussie Outback, where Lady D is going home to settle a few scores and reclaim her home She is a born vampire, royalty in her world, but that does not mean that life has been easy for her She has never taken given a third mark, having no desire to have a full marked servant until she meets Devlin Dev is hiding out as a bushman He lost his family in a brutal attack and when we meet him in 1953, he has secluded himself in the outback, only coming into civilization briefly every few months He comes across as being a rogue living in the wilderness, but he s actually an educated man escaping the pain of his past.This story grabbed me from the very beginning I loved the Aussie setting and the dialect It was a great change of pace The chemistry between Lady Danny and Dev was perfect Even knowing what she was, he found himself drawn to her Again, we have the dominant, alpha male in a submissive role He surrenders to her in order to protect and care for her, and that battle of the wills is always entertaining and hot Like Jacob, his introduction to the role of a vampire s servant was shocking In some ways, Dev had it harder because his choice was taken from him There were many aspects of the story that were emotionally hard to read, the main one being our introduction to the pack of wild vampire children used to hunt Dev down for sport But there were also many tender, sweet moments between Dev and Lady D This world that Joey Hill has created for her vampires is completely enthralling to me I can t seem to get enough of it It s dark and seductive, violent and tender Those contradictions make for a fast paced read full of surprise turns I am hoping that over the course of the next few books in the series, I will get to watch Lady Danny grow into the vampire mistress we saw in The Mark of the Vampire Queen There is no doubt in my mind that wherever the next books in the series take me, I will be coming back for

    I didn t really like this book It s the only one of the series I ve read I read it 1st b c the author said on his website it can be read as a stand alone so far and won t be reading any of the others I love to read and am a very fast reader However, this book did not hold my interest in the least I only finished it b c if I don t finish a book regardless of how dreadful the book may be it drives to crazy not to finish it as I wonder if wouldn ve gotten better further into the book I think the biggest problem I had with the book was the whole human servant slave thing To read how Dev was commanded by his vampire lover, Danny A.K.A Lady D to perform sexually with other servants for the entertainment of vampires, regardless of whether or not Dev wished itI just didn t like it The whole thing of submitting totally and completely to perform and it being not b c you want to have sex with that person, but b c your vampire master commanded it and you desire to serve your master s every command and desireyeah, that didn t really go over well with me IDK, maybe if you re into that kind of thing you might like this book, I for one don t and didn t The whole sex scene with Dev in shackles at the mercy of Alistair and Danny as they took their pleasure of him bothered me bad enough I put the book down and didn t pick it up again for nearly 2 days I had hoped it would get better once I picked the book back up and got past that scene, but although that particular incident wasn t repeated the same, the book didn t get better for me I won t be recommending it to anyone.

    I am taking my time reading this series Yes that is how much I am liking it I m so glad a friend recommended it This starts out in an Australian setting which is awesome Dev is a bushman in the Australian outback He is suffering from the loss of his wife and son Who in return got revenge on their killers by killing them Dev meets Danny a natural born vamp She is on her way back home to reclaim it from a jerk who was married to her mother Danny gets ambushed by the region master and Dev rescues her Lots of stuff happens NO spoilers I also have to say Alyssa the queen vamp makes an appearance in this book What I love that about this series is even though they can be a standalone The author puts previous characters into the books What I didn t like about the book was, the treating of the vampire children It was so cruel Plus the fact that when the vamp dies their servant dies also Over all this book has been my favorite so far I can not wait to see what happens next The author has done a wonderful job in creating this make believe world in a real world setting.

    I m having a love hate feeling about this story I was interested in reading it when I found out it s about Lady Daniela and Devlin They were an intriguing couple whom I first read about in the second book in this series The Mark of the Vampire Queen.This one has BDSM, the characters were way different from Lyssa and Jacob The sex was rougher and though the author wrote a good love story on this one, the story dragged The setting Outback Australia and other cities didn t captivate me Maybe it s Lyssa s unpredictability that made me want to read , because Danny is a bit soft for vampires.There were a lot of Aussie slangs in here but I understood them fine with the help of the internet There were scenes I couldn t stand reading but I still did, because it was written well Devlin has a tragic past and it s fate that brought them together in that secluded bar in the Outback I liked him a lot, his soul is scarred and he matched well with Danny.I don t know what else to write, I guess I m still dazed by the extremes.

    I wanted him and I wanted her What a great sexy hot erotic book Dev an Aussie outback falls for a blonde vamp by the name of Danny, it was so hot from page one in the bar scene I had to take deep breaths What a great romantic story Danny is amazing she really knows how to stand up for herself and she also likes submissive women a trait I liked in her Dev had a great loss and I m glad he was able to love again even though Danny was rough on him by binding him and making him take another man it was crazy Damn those dinner scenes in this series are something, the way each vamp plays a role my head is spinning by the end of it I cried in this book because Danny envisioned herself making a home for Dev and his lost wife and child it was so sad and touching Lyssa the queen makes a great appearance in this book making everyone do what she wants and adding herself to it Dev has a funny witty way about him that I love including an enormous penis which is played up so much in this book it s practically 3d Well I will end it on that note and say this book was huge
