Houston, Texas—Cowboy boots, baseball and
journeys to the stars . . . right?
Wrong. Because Houston is also home
to Jabril Karim, one of the eight powerful Vampire Lords who control all of
North America. And as Private Investigator Cynthia Leighton will soon discover,
not all Vampire Lords are created equal. For Jabril is the face of evil in the
new world, a vampire who values no life but his own, who enslaves those he
desires, steals whatever he covets and destroys anyone who stands in his way.
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. But the danger doesn’t end there. For Jabril has set his sights on Cyn, and
he will stop at nothing to have her.
So......I absolutely love this series! It is fast paced and full of action. Never boring, and really hard to put down and go to bed. I ask myself what took me so long to start this series, it didn't initially catch my attention until I read all the great reviews. Now I am reading them all back to back as fast as I can, thankfully they are all available by kindle. Cyn is a very independent woman with her own business and her own life. But she seems to have a knack for getting into some serious trouble every time she takes a case involving a vampire. She heads to Houston on a case for another vampire lord to put space and time between her and her broken heart. It's just a matter of time before both Cyn and Raphael admit they can't live without each other, right? The sensual aspect to this series is just enough to keep your heart engaged without overwhelming the story unnecessarily. But the passion is always there with Cyn and Raphael. I can't wait to see what happens next.
And let me say that I don't think it should have been titled Jabril, he is a monster, and didn't deserve the title. It should have been titled Mirabelle, because she was the reason for the story. Also, who is Sara? She appears in the epilogue as if she is of some importance to the story and Cyn. But I don't recall reading her name anywhere in the story line in either book. Oh well, not an earth shattering detail, just puzzling.
