As seems to be the case lately, this post hits me when I’m still in the middle of a book, so this is (again) literally what I’m reading 🙂 I’m about halfway through and am really enjoying both the hero and heroine and the story world Eden has created.
I purchased this book this summer at RWA’s literacy signing and forgot to look to see if it was the first in a series. Normally, I’m usually lost with paranormals if I don’t start with Book 1, but not with this one (this is Book 2) I had no inkling it wasn’t the first one until I started drafting this post.
The heroine Dee is a vampire slayer with some childhood baggage that’s made her tough and a little smart-assy. But I like that this doesn’t make her one of those smart-ass, kick-ass heroines who eschews any and all help because, you know, she’s-tough-and-she’s-got-this-y’all. Thankfully, she knows her limits and has the lady balls to admit it.
Now the hero, Simon, mmmm. Sexy and mysterious. You definitely know there’s more going on with who he is early on, and I was up waay past my bedtime last night (Thanks, Cynthia) as it was right when all this was getting revealed, and I had to know y’all! Their chemistry is sizzling, too.
Cynthia Eden returns to the realm of the Other, where the supernatural bounty hunters of Night Watch work hard and play harder. . .Sandra “Dee” Daniels is a vampire’s worst nightmare. Sure, she couldn’t get up to five-six in the highest heels money can buy–not that she ever wears heels. But the monsters in her past and the stake in her boot are enough to keep most bloodsuckers interested in staying undead out of Baton Rouge.
But there are changes afoot on her turf. Rumors of a Born Master in town–a vampire so powerful he can make the streets run with blood. And a new face in Dee’s dive bars and alleyways–Simon Chase, a strong, sexy shadow with a haunted past of his own. Simon knows a lot about the dark side of Dee’s work. He knows even more about how to make her body spark with desire. But the hot lust shimmering between them is only the beginning. Because Simon also knows a secret that will change Dee’s life–if she can live long enough to uncover it.
