Montreal, Quebec . . . A charming city on the St. Lawrence River, historic, sophisticated, but beneath it all lies an extensive underground where treacherous vampires are plotting to seize the country.
Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire--handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill--who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada's ruling vampire lord, and it's up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.
Eleanor Morel lost everything--including the love of her life--when she became a vampire. But now, twenty years later, she's a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn't know is that the special hunter she'll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he's demanding answers.
Lucifer's love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they'll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they're going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow . . .
5 Vampire-Loving Stars!!
D.B. Reynolds does it again!! She is truly a master storyteller. I wish I had even a quarter of her amazing storytelling talent! Once again she has given us a delicious vampire to fall in love with. In Lucifer we actually get two storylines that are interwoven, but this is definitely Lucifer’s book. However, we all know that something is going on with Lady Sophia and her mate Colin and we finally get answers.
Lucifer, like all DBR’s vampires, is gorgeous, witty, charming and has an abundance of charisma, he’s also very passionate and a bit vulnerable at times, but only when it comes to Eleanor. Lucifer is not a vampire lord nor is he a lieutenant, he is one of Aden’s vampires who’s a hunter, who happens to be powerful enough to one day rule his own territory.
In Lucifer, another powerful European Lord is attempting to take control of one of the North American territories, in this case, Lady Sophia’s Canadian territory. We are treated once again to an exciting tale of deception, brutality, betrayal, love, loyalty, and a fierce battle between a Lady and a Lord.
Lucifer, at the request of Lord Aden is given the task of finding Colin who has been taken by Lady Sophia’s enemy to weaken her. Having a strategic and analytical mind is one of Lucifer’s many talents, which makes him very good at his job. He soon finds out that he’ll be having a partner on his hunt…his long lost love, Eleanor.
Eleanor is Lady Sophia’s most trusted personal bodyguard and friend. Sophia doesn’t know who to trust and doesn’t want Aden working alone in her territory, so she sends Eleanor to watch over him, assist in the hunt, the investigation, and the eventual rescue of Colin. Eleanor, like all DBR’s heroines, is no weeping willow, she is a strong young vampire who happens to be Lucifer’s ex-lover who disappeared several years earlier. He soon learns that Eleanor is no longer the shy and fragile human Lucifer once loved so fiercely and lost.
Lucifer and Eleanor make a great team and as they work together, they come to terms with their past, eventually, they are able to put the past behind them, get reacquainted and…..WOW, the passion they have for each other is scorching hot!
All-in-all another fantastic addition to Vampires in America and a MUST read for fans of the series. I absolutely love this series and can’t wait for more!! Once again, we get one of the author’s signature endings as she dangles that carrot….and as always it promises to be very exciting!
