Thrilling and Seductive! Fast paced and loaded with action!

I have read all the books in the Dark Series and Christine Feehan has a way of writing that will captivate you. You will be on the edge of your seat! Tons of action and scorching hot romance! The book has a crime/mobster vibe but yet still the mesmerizing Carpathians we all love. While reading I felt like I was in the book with them and I can honestly say Maksim Volkov is one of my favorite Carpathians of all! He had this dominate, sexy bad boy thing going and I just fell hard for him! Blaze was awesome! A complete badass! The love and devotion she has for her family and all that has been taken from her is heart breaking. She is not one to be pushed around. Her heart is set on revenge and she has her very own Carpathian Lifemate to help her take down their enemies! Let me tell you she gets even! The Carpathian world is about to become even more deadly. As the Vampires are banding together and have infiltrated the human world, things are gonna get messy! I was so wrapped up in this book it felt like a full length novel! Dark Crime was almost 60% of the book!

I loved getting a glimpse into Maggie Shayne’s world and will be checking out her other books for sure. Madison and Shep are awesome! Madison is a vampire and has been hiding what was forced upon her for decades even though the world knows that they exist. She became a cop to help protect the innocent. When she meets Shep another detective, you can feel their chemistry leap off the pages. They are on the hunt for a vampire killer and they’ve set themselves up to become his target. To survive they will need all the help they can get. I really enjoyed this story. The only thing I can say I wish was different is their was so much chemistry build up but not any real delivery. I wanted a passionate love seen but their was only an almost one.
Even without it, it was still a great read.
I would definitely read more from this author!

This was my first Lori Herter book and I will definitely be checking into more of her work! I loved Annie and Rafael. Annie is an archaeologist and is digging on the land of a man who wants her to marry him. Brent Logan is not her epic love but he is kind. He is a safe choice. She feels she could have a comfortable life with him. As she is on her dig she discovers there is something to the legends that she has heard, as she stumbles upon a handsome vampire.
Rafael has spent centuries alone. Relationships with humans never end well, but he is drawn to Annie like no one ever before.
Annie has fallen helplessly in love but will she change her way of life to be with him. She fears by loving him she will lose herself. Annie has a choice to make. Will she miss out on a chance of once in a lifetime kind of love.
