Title : Can I Keep You
Author: Candy Nicks
Can I Keep YouDate Published: 1st October 2006

Description: When Kane picks up a runaway on the streets of Victorian England his only thought is to have a few days of amusement and a decent meal. He is a vampire, after all – it's what he does. But Laura has to be the most unconvincing whore he's ever met. She soon finds out that there are ways other than brute force and strength to bring a vampire to his knees. As they fall in love, she becomes the catalyst for his astonishing journey of redemption, bringing back all-too-painful memories of Harry, the gentle man he once was. It's not an easy road. Along the way they encounter forces of evil that have other plans for Laura and Kane. And the question neither of them really wants to answer hovers in the background. Does he turn her into a vampire like himself and risk losing her? Or will a human lifetime together be enough?

Review: This book is set in 1890 and is based on the life of a vampire named Kane. We started off in a tavern/bar with Kane looking for his next victim but he gets distracted  when a prostitute walks in, he can tell its his first time doing this job because he can see her nerves getting the better of her. She leaves the building with a sailor and Kane follows but when he catches up he finds that the girl has changed her mind but the sailor wont take no for an answer, this is when Kane steps in and snaps the sailors neck.Now he is left with the dilemma on what to do with the girl.
He decides to take her home with him, to make her his meal and plaything for the night.

Laura running from her past that she can no longer live with, looking for a way to make her own way in the world, goes home with Kane. But she sits in his carriage with the feeling she has made the wrong choice.Knowing there is something not right about the man sitting next to her but not able to figure out what.But  all is confirmed when he pulls her to him and sinks his teeth into her and tastes the blood that runs through her veins. Kane is struggles with his demon and lets her go.
Kane and Laura  come to a deal and Kane takes her to her bed and learns her all he knows about the world of seduction and sex.

Kane's past then comes a calling and poor Laura gets taken away. She gets attacked and sexually abused by the Vampires who sired Kane. and she is made to watch as Kane gets his head smashed in.
Kane gets the chance to win his girl back by fighting for her, this fight is full of action and is extremely bloody but Kane wins and gets to walk away with his girl.

Kane comes across as so sad and disturbed,so desperate for someone to love and something he cant have. Laura down on her luck but not willing to give up fighting.Kane and Laura grow closer and closer as the book goes on. I loved this book. Kane made my heart melt. The sex in this book was so hot you will need to have a fan next to you to cool you down as you read. This book all so had action that will keep you at the edge of your seat and bits so heart warming it will make you swoon for Kane. This story flows so easy that you will not be able to put it down.
