Maud Demille is a daughter of Innkeepers—a special group who provide ‘lodging’ to other-planetary visitors—so she knows that a simple life isn't in the cards. But even Maud could never have anticipated what Fate would throw at her.
Once a wife to a powerful vampire knight, Maud and her young daughter, Helen, were exiled with him for his treachery to the desolate, savage planet of Karhari. Karhari killed her husband, and Maud—completely abandoned by his family—has spent over a year avenging his debts. Rescued by her sister Dina, she's sworn off all things vampire.
Except... In helping Dina save the world, she met Arland, the Marshal of House Krahr, one of the most powerful vampire houses. One thing led to another and he asked for her hand in marriage. She declined. Arland is not used to hearing the word ‘no;’ and try as she might, Maud can't just walk away from Arland. It doesn't help that being human is a lot harder for Maud than being a vampire.
To sort it all out, she accepts his invitation to visit his home planet. House Krahr is extremely influential and Maud knows that a woman—a human, with a very questionable past—who's turned down a proposal from its most beloved son won't get a warm reception. Maybe she’s not sure about marrying Arland, but House Krahr isn’t going to decide for her. Maud Demille has never run from a fight, and House Krahr will soon discover that there's a lot more to Maud than they’re expecting.


  • It’s fantastic. Full stop.

    Olen ollut Ilona Andrewsin fani jo pitkÀÀn. Kirjoitustaidoltaan ja tarinoiltaan maailman huippua oleva pariskunta tietÀÀ mitÀ heidÀn lukijakuntansa haluaa - ja usein yllÀttÀÀ vielÀ positiivisesti. Innkeeper-sarjan alussa tutustuimme Dinaaan, ja edelliset kolme kirjaa kertoivat hÀnestÀ. Nyt pÀÀsemme siirtymÀÀn hÀnestÀ eteenpÀin Dinan kiinnostavaan ja rohkeaan sisareen Maudiin ja edellisissÀ kirjoissa esiintyneeseen Arlandiin. TÀmÀ on kai romanttista scifiÀ, mutta hyvin pehmeÀÀ sellaista. Suosittelen lÀmpimÀsti, ja sen jÀlkeen kannattaa ostaa kaikki muutkin Ilona Andrewsin teokset.

    Great story in the Innkeeper series. This story is about Dina’s sister Maud. We follow her struggle to make up her mind on marrying Arland and fitting in being human on a planet of vampires. New species are introduced the Tachi and old characters come back Nuan Cee. There are banquets, sparring with future in-laws and snarky conversations to be had. Great fun! While this book could be read as a stand-alone it is better to have read the other Innkeeper books first.
