Until she does. And he’s delicious enough to bite.

I had such fun with this book! Dying to Date was fun and flirty with edge of intrigue from start to finish. At times I found myself giggling, others I was biting my nails.

Melissa is a vampire socialite however thankfully I did not find her to be a snob. Maybe a bit grumpy, but who can blame her whe ...more

If you enjoyed the first book this series, Love at Stake, you'll love Dying to Date. Being well over a year between releases, I must admit I went in a little rusty, but as soon as I started reading it all came flooding back and I remembered exactly why I loved the first book; Victoria Davies writes ...more

Melissa and Tarian have an instant connection and fall for each other pretty quickly, but Tarian has a huge secret that could change their relationship in an instant.

We met Melissa in LOVE AT STAKE, she is Lucian's daughter. She is ready to fine her mate and she turns to Fated Match to accomplish th ...more

By Douglas June 25, 2015

This was a fun romp at heart but overall it spent a lot of time in serious situations. Melissa and Tarian are pretty much a mismatch but they have good chemistry but not much else and things start to go to pieces before they have a chance to really get to know each other well.

The story is great, the ...more

By Marie February 02, 2017

Sexy, edgy, a dark paranormal theme, this book was very easy to lose myself in and enjoy. The cover alone is worth drooling over and the synopsis really captured my interest. But it was the story that really won me. I like the characters and I loved the plot. This is easily one of the most interesti ...more

Good. Fucking. Book.
While I also enjoyed the first book, I hadn’t really been too motivated to read this book, as well as the next. However I am glad that I finally got around to it.
It was definitely more intense than the last book. What with the kidnapping, escapes, shady meet ups and whatnot. It ...more

First reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

It’s not easy to find that perfect mate. Doesn’t matter if the one in need is human, vampire, werewolf or even a necromancer… you can’t just pick out a date or mate at the local 7 Eleven ya know? Life, or I should say, undead life would be so much more pleasant if t ...more

By Deanna March 12, 2017

I don't know why I keep going into this series thinking the books are cute. They are not. Instead, they are intense, emotional and heart wrenching. They deal with some pretty heavy duty issues too like prejudice, racial discrimination, equality and freedom. I guess it's because the basis of these st ...more

Melissa Redgrave just cannot find a suitable boyfriend, even with the help of her friend Abbey, who works for Fated Match, the biggest dating agency for supernaturals on the east coast.

I thoroughly enjoyed this paranormal novel! I enjoyed the idea of paranormal beings needing and using a dating agency. After all, if you’re going to live for eternity, finding your fated mate really is a must! One of the leading New York Vampire socialites is Melissa Redgrave and she’s ...more

It has been a while since I have read a paranormal romance and reading DYING TO DATE by Victoria Davies really brought back the love I had for this genre of books.

Melissa Redgrave has the worst luck with men, Tarian Drake is looking for a mate, their each other’s perfect match until their families interfere and the events could put them on opposite sides of a war in this captivating paranormal romance.

*I would like to thank Entangled Publishing, LLC via NetGALLEY for giving me an unreleased copy for an honest and fair review.

Can Melissa forgive Tarian not telling of his Necromancy even after saving her from his grandfather’s evil plan…or is it too much even for mates?

Even though this is the secon ...more

Got an ARC from Net Galley.

I must say I'm digging every Entangled book I've gotten my hands on. This is another great read for summer since I'm sure that a lot of readers might want to read shorter books during the hot days of summer. I don't really think about reading certain books at certain times ...more

A match fated.

If you've read LOVE AT STAKE then you're ready for Melissa's turn at having a match made through the service, Fated Match. If not, I really feel like this is one time when I have to recommend reading it first. You won't need it for the happily ever after to make sense but to really ge ...more

By Evelyn June 29, 2015

I really loved the first book so I was a little worried about this one living up to it, but in the end for me it did. The thing I love about this author is she's actually funny. A lot of authors try to infuse humor into their romance, and a lot of times it comes across cheesy, or like they are tryin ...more

Melissa Redgrave wanted to meet her mate. In fact she wanted it so much she decided to join a dating agency that specialized in the “hidden” paranormal community in the world. So she went to Fated Match – but only after her Father had vetted it and found himself a mate in the process. Love at Stake (Fated Match, #1) by Victoria Davies

About the author

Victoria Davies

Victoria Davies's passion for writing started young. Luckily she had a family who encouraged believing in magic and embracing imagination. From stories quickly scribbled in bright pink diaries, her love of storytelling developed. Since then her characters may have evolved and her plots may have grown decidedly more steamy but she never lost her love of the written word. Writing is not only a way to silence the wonderful voices in her head, but it also allows her to share her passions with her readers.
