Powerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledged absolute loyalty on their very lives. But when, in a brazen and deadly daylight attack, a gang of human killers kidnaps the one female vampire he’d give his life for, Raphael turns to a human investigator to find his enemies before it’s too late. Cynthia Leighton is smart, tough and sexy, a private investigator and former cop who’s tired of spying on cheating spouses and digging out old bank accounts. When Raphael asks for her help in tracking down the kidnappers, Cyn’s happy to accept. But she soon realizes her greatest danger comes not from the humans, but from Raphael himself. Battling Russian mobsters and treacherous vampires, and betrayed by those they trusted, Cyn and Raphael find themselves fighting for their lives while caught up in a passion of blood and violence that is destined to destroy them both

Running from L.A. and its seductive Vampire Lord, Raphael, Cyn sees the Houston job as a welcome refuge, a place to get away and heal her broken heart. But Texas will be no vacation. For in Jabril Karim, Cyn will confront a true enemy, one who will go to any lengths to satisfy his lusts, enrich his coffers and expand his power. Fighting for the lives of two young sisters, Cyn’s journey will take her through the streets of Houston and back to L.A., where the human police are determined to bring Raphael down for the murder of one of their own.

Buffalo, New York—Thundering waterfalls, great sports teams . . . and a treacherous Vampire Lord who is slowly losing his mind. New York City vampire Rajmund Gregor is the undisputed master of The Big Apple. He bows to no one but his Sire, the Vampire Lord Krystof, who has ruled the Northeast for hundreds of years. But when Krystof summons Rajmund to his headquarters in Buffalo, Raj finds his master slowly descending into madness and his territory crumbling around him. Raj is the only one of Krystof's children strong enough to seize power, but he’ll have to save his master before he can destroy him. Several women have gone missing and the local police are convinced a vampire is behind it. Is Krystof so lost to reality that he’s capturing and murdering human women? Is a rogue vampire moving into Krystof’s territory for the kill? Or is it something far more insidious, something that could threaten the existence of vampires everywhere? Sarah Stratton is living a lie. Her past holds a secret she shares with no one—not even her good friend Cynthia Leighton, the West Coast vampire lord’s mate. It's a secret that could destroy her carefully constructed life as a professor at a Buffalo university. It’s also a secret that could save the lives of the missing women. To save them, however, she must enter Buffalo’s vampire community and put herself into the care of Rajmund Gregor. But can she trust Raj, the dangerously seductive vampire who wants to lay claim to far more than her secrets?

And all of them take the reader behind the scenes with the author’s ultimate alpha Vampire Lords and their beautiful and independent mates. And Never Before Published – Two brand new, full-length short stories. You Belong To Me follows Duncan and his mate Emma as they consolidate power in his new territory, while generating plenty of heat in private. And then it’s time for The Wedding, as readers join Rajmund and Sarah for their big weekend ... and Cyn’s girls-night-out bachelorette party. Unfortunately, some local kidnappers have other plans, and Cyn and Sarah will have to outwit their abductors before Raphael and Raj start hunting, and the entire wedding is ruined!

Hm. This was written in a similar style, but not with the same emphasis on the softer side of a vampire.  If anything, Aden kinda scared me!  He is cold, distant, has a fondness for S&M and the such....his character is well written if that's the impression to be given.

What Aden was good at was being a vamp.

Since Lucas destroyed the previous Lord of the Mid West there is an opening for a Lord to replace him.  Aden is the front runner.  He knows it. His enemies know it.  His children know it.  He just has to do it.  He has a darker power than the other vamps, like Duncan was very empathic....Aden gains power from those who die.

Sidonie is a journalist.  for the last year shes been "hunting" for the exact location and all the other Intel to reveal who and where a slave house is being run by Vamps.  Her friend was killed by the ones who run it.  And its not just Vamps.

She manages to wangle an invitation to a vamp only event to meet Aden - to ask him what hes going to do about the slavery.  He seems far from interested....altho his first thoughts of her was about how her pale skin would look good with a quick whip of his flail....not the way the other Lords thought of their potential hook ups.

Aden begins to clean up the territory....even before he is named Lord.  He faces challengers, minions, and gain trust from Klemens old children...

he needs to go to see Lucas for the test of becoming the Lord....
why does he have such a hatred for the slave trade?
His trust issues are massive....how on earth can Sidonie get him to trust her?
And the biggest question....can Aden actually become the Lord? Will he be accepted? 

Sad this is the last book of the series for now, and am looking forward to the next one to be released....the epilogue left it open and interesting!

I have reviewed the entire series HERE if you wish to learn more about the Vampires In America!

  1. Vampires in America will captivate the true Vamp lovers!! D.B.Reynolds writes Vampires who thrive on their power and abilities and make no apologises for being what they are; Dangerous, magnetic and top of the food chain! If you're looking for squeamish Vamps who revolt at the thought of drinking blood, then these Vamps may not be to your liking. I love this series and can't wait for more!!
