Mexico . . . haunting deserts, hot nights, and vampires, who’ve been
there for hundreds of years, watching from the shadows, playing their
games, manipulating humans, and surviving at any cost.
Kuxim, powerful and charismatic, was made vampire by an ambitious leader
looking for soldiers to pave his way to the rule of all Mexico. But
more than a century later, Vincent’s Sire is looking over his shoulder
as Vincent closes in for the kill, ready to claim the title Lord of
Mexico for himself.
Lana Arnold is a bounty hunter, smart,
beautiful, and determined to chart her own future. So when the most
powerful vampire lord in all of North America enlists her help in
tracking down a very old and elusive bloodsucker, Lana sees nothing but
opportunity. There’s only one catch. The client wants her to take
Vincent—a vampire she neither knows nor trusts—along on her hunt. Then
again, maybe it’s herself she doesn’t trust, because Vincent Kuxim is
sex walking in a pair of tight black jeans.
Thrown together by
circumstance, Vincent and Lana soon find themselves battling an evil
they didn’t know existed in a fight that makes Vincent all the more
determined to destroy his Sire, seize Mexico for himself . . . and keep
Lana by his side forever.
*Sigh* where to start….Vincent. Vincent is very charismatic, he’s a charmer, a masterful flirt, very seductive, and definitely a ladies man. He’s also very powerful, respected, and loyal to those who are close to him. He’s a Lieutenant to Lord of Mexico Enrique, yet stays as far away from him as possible, and has very little to do with him as he knows Enrique is loathsome and vile. And, soon he learns just how vile Enrique is…
Lana is a bounty hunter who has crossed paths with Cyn. So, when Raphael has a message to send to a very old vampire in Mexico who has not been seen or heard from for quite sometime, Lana takes the job but there’s a catch…she must work with Vincent. Vincent is not sure why Raphael insists that he accompany Lana on this quest, but when powerful and respected Lord Raphael suggests something from someone, that request is not to be ignored.
I love her strong female leads (PI, FBI Agent, and now a bounty hunter), all of her heroines are kick-ass, but also feminine when they need to be, and her vampires are just freaking magnificent!!! I won’t go into detail about Vincent and Lana’s love scenes, but will say this…SMOKIN’ HOT!!! (and I’d like to take a shower with Vincent…that’s all I’m saying!).
If you’ve not read this series, I highly recommend it….start it now!! It’s sooooo good!!! Looking forward to the next book in the series Deception.
