The Gardella Vampire Chronicles

The Gardella Vampire Chronicles is a series of romantic, historical fantasy novels by Colleen Gleason about a family of vampire hunters who have lived throughout the ages, hunting the undead.

The first four novels in the series chronicle the story of Victoria Gardella Grantworth, a young woman living in Regency-era England (1820s) as she struggles to maintain a normal life among London’s haute ton Society and her nightly duties of hunting and killing vampires.(Wikipedia)

I've got to say it, these books are great! I love historical romance, and these mix it up with some mystery and vampire action. Victoria Gardella is twenty when the novel starts and first learns that she is destined to become a vampire hunter due to her lineage, she can accept to become a huntress and never have a normal life again, or choose no and will forget she was ever asked. Point is, she does. She her job is tough, very tough considering the training and life threatening situations. This series has orginality. The characters were great and not predictable. They aren't like every other vampire series, which that in itself makes it awesome. The stroy line is great and unpredictable as well. Most stories you know where the main characters will go and where they will end up, but not with this series. Definitely a series worth reading.
