River has spent her whole life locked up and hidden away. She’s lonely and desperate to make friends and have a family of her own. What’s so wrong with wanting to fall in love and become a mom? But life has its own plans for her when she gets caught between her father and a man so dark and deadly she can’t look away. Could the feelings she’s having be more than just fear? Could they possibly be desire, too?
Bishop Thorin is worried about the threat to his territory in the city. There’s something sinister coming closer to tear apart all that he’s built. He’s got the weight of the world resting on his shoulders, but when a young redhead steps in his way, all that he thought was lost is right in front of him. Can he take away her prison and make her dreams come true?
Warning: It’s the first time we’ve written vampires, so go easy on us. Enjoy this brand new series that features a coven of five and read about how all of them find love.
"Bitten by the King" Reviews
"Bitten by the King" is the fourth book in the Virgin Blood series, and just like the others it is a quick, sexy read. I have really enjoyed Alexa Riley's world of vampires....I know this is the first time they have written about vampires; and I really hope it won't be their last! I enjoyed the unique vampire world they created, and loved the mates that each vampire found to fulfill their lives.
I am always pleasantly surprised by how easily these two authors are able to make an interesting enough story in such a short book. These stories I save for when I am in the mood for a fast and low angst read. I am glad that I have their stories on my book shelf, and I look forward to more from Alexa Riley!

I was really looking forward to this book. And maybe that was the problem, my expectations were just too high.
Ultimately this book turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. It’s over so quickly, there’s little to no drama and yet again no epilogue. It’s the same as the others just less.
We’re also introduced to a new character. Which is good right?
No. Not in this case because the story is only available on a podcast!
Although highly anticipated, I thought that the last book of the series was unfortunately anticlimactic. There was no epilogue and not much interaction between the two main characters, i.e. Bishop and Loren. The ending felt more like HFN and not HEA, while a new character appeared almost in the end and saved the day. I suppose Grim Reaper will also get his book and his mate.
As an overall experience, this series was a pleasant surprise. Alexa Riley can definitely write smutty PNR and I would love to read more interesting stories in the future that include other paranormal beings. Could I place a request for a future series about Fairies?
I'm a bit sad, that's the end of the series. But I'm glad that Bishop finally got his HEA. I was mostly curious about his story. Bishop was mysterious leader and he was close to his death, if he didn't find his mate soon. So, yeah, I wanted to know more about him.
So, this final book almost answers all questions for me. I say almost, because there was at least one I'm still feel clueless about. It may be me focusing too much on details once again, or maybe this may be one of the time when villain have no real reason for things they do.
In all this was great book. Actually, whole series. And I hope Alexa will have more vampires in near future for us.
