#BookReview – “Covet” by Felicity Heaton


Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah, a mortal female belonging to a powerful patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore.

He will risk everything to claim Lilah.

Lilah has fought her desire for Javier, but each glance he steals, his eyes promising pleasure and so much more, ignites a fire inside her that will no longer be denied.

She will risk everything to win his heart and her freedom.

When their resistance burns away in the heat of a wild moment, what will await them–the eternity they desire or death?


In book one in the Vampire Erotic Theatre series, Lilah is a human working as a servant in a vampire-only London theater. Even though a cruel aristocratic vampire owns her, she’s fallen in love with her boss.

Javier, along with three other vampires, owns the theater. He’s been secretly in love with Lilah since he met her, but since another vampire owns the delectable human, he’s kept his distance. After a month apart visiting his family, he returns to the theater and finds himself alone with her. His lust finally burns out of control, and they make love. Knowing he’s broken the law and will soon face death, he spends his remaining hours with her, slowly coming to the realization that the bond between Lilah and her master may not be as strong as it should be.

Javier and Lilah were dark, sensual, and entertaining. They’ve both been fighting their desire for one another, but once they finally gave in to lust and passion, the love they’ve been denying overpowers them. I loved seeing them come together. The sex scenes were scorching!

I haven’t read many books in Ms. Heaton’s various vampire series, but I think some of them are interconnected. That seems to be the case with this one, due to Javier’s family and his sister’s recent marriage to a human.

Javier’s friends and business partners—Callum, Antoine, and Snow—are great secondary characters, and I’m interested to know more about Snow in particularly.

I didn’t notice any typos, but I had to reread a few passages due to odd word choices. Anyway, I like Ms. Heaton’s writing style, and I would love to read more books in this series.
