I love Cynthia and Raphael as a couple, especially when the big, bad, alpha vampire has to be saved by his bad-ass human lover. We get more insight into some of our favorite characters in this series, more world building as the European vampires try to make their play against the most powerful vampire in North America, and also see the love and trust between Cyn and Raphael expand even further. DB gives us plenty of steamy scenes between the two, woven expertly amongst the suspense and action. This series has not disappointed me once and I’m excited about the next books, plus the spinoff series about magic.

Our Favorite Quotes

"I love you like this," he said, his lips moving against the skin of her neck. "Your pussy hot and slick, your nipples like ripe cherries waiting to be eaten, your body writhing in my arms, begging to be fucked. Are you begging to be fucked, my Cyn?"

Of all the beings Raphael had known in his long life, she alone understood all that he was, both good and bad, and accepted him, loved him, without reservation.

Raphael held her tightly, his fingers flat against her belly, his cock heating her core as he moved faster, as her pussy clamped down on his shaft, caressing, rippling along his length until finally, with a groan of release, he joined her in tumbling over the edge.

From The Publisher


Kauai, Hawaii—tropical paradise, vibrant jungle, turquoise sea . . . and sensuous nights that hide vampires so powerful they can change the world.

Raphael—powerful, extraordinary, arrogant. He’s been eliminating rivals and gathering allies, determined not just to survive, but to demolish the Europeans who think they can steal what he’s worked for centuries to create. In a final bid to avert a war that seems inevitable, Raphael agrees to meet an enemy he knows of old. She is formidable, wily, and not to be trusted. But in his arrogance, Raphael believes he can foil whatever treachery she has brewing.

Cynthia Leighton—Raphael’s human mate, beautiful, smart, and deadly when threatened. She doesn’t trust anyone, much less a powerful vampire claiming to want peace. So while Raphael prepares to negotiate a treaty, Cyn is preparing for the inevitable double-cross that she knows is coming. Raphael worries about saving thousands of vampire lives. She only cares about one, and she will do anything to keep him alive and in her arms.

When Cyn is proven right, when it all falls apart and Raphael’s enemies draw on ancient magic to trap him, taking him away from Cyn and out of the war, it all falls to her—to find Raphael, to save the thousands of vampires who will die if she doesn’t succeed . . . and to kill every single being, human or vampire, who gets in her way.

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
