Title: Loved by a Killer
Author: C.F. Rabbiosi
Raina loved performing on the London stage, but one night found herself dancing for only HIM. She froze, her cerulean eyes drawn to the balcony, where the warm glow of gaslights flickered upon his shadowy form. If only she had known that this monster— wrapped in beautiful skin— would rip her away from everything in the world she loved, perhaps she wouldn’t have lingered so long.
Lord Marcus Loxley loved being a bloodthirsty predator, but one night his gallivanting brought him to his knees in front of her. If only he’d known what would happen when she danced, that she would remind him of someone who had been everything in the world he loved, perhaps he would’ve turned away.
Determined to possess her in every scintillating meaning of the word, he drags her deeper and deeper into his depraved world, willing her to become his crimson-spattered queen. But she fights him, as well as the darkness within that threatens to consume her very existence. And oh, how her caged demoness begs to be released. But desire is a dangerous thing, and a part of her still wants her captor.
Roughly, deeply, quivering, consuming.
Until she begins falling for someone else.
Meanwhile, prostitutes are being butchered in the misty, cobblestone streets of London’s East end, and she begins to wonder: Is her dark lover, the one she is bound to, The Ripper?
With the haunting beauty of the gas lit times of Victorian England and historically accurate Jack the Ripper crime scenes, Loved By A Killer is a beautifully written, gripping paranormal romance.
Warning: Sexual content and graphic violence.

Dark, twisted, and suspenseful, Loved by a Killer combines vampires with Jack the Ripper. This story tells the story of Raina, a London dancer, who gets caught up into the world of Marcus, a vampire who believes Raina has a lingering essence of his long lost wife. At first, Raina is enthralled by the belief that she has his attention but when she begins to lose everything, she realizes just how much trouble she’s gotten herself into.
I loved just how the story was written. It switches point of view from third person to first person and usually, that kind of thing would distract me from the story but Rabbiosi did it perfectly! It helps to not only further character development but builds suspense and makes this book impossible to set down.
