Montreal, Quebec… A charming city on the St. Lawrence River, historic, sophisticated, but beneath it all lies an extensive underground where treacherous vampires are plotting to seize the country.
Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire—handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill—who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada’s ruling vampire lord, and it’s up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.
Eleanor Morel lost everything—including the love of her life—when she became a vampire. But now, twenty years later, she’s a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn’t know is that the special hunter she’ll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he’s demanding answers.
Lucifer’s love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they’ll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they’re going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow…
I won’t lie: this isn’t (to me) an outstanding vampire-romance book. I’ve read quite a few and I’ve loved, like, really love-loved mad love, only a handfull of them (i.e. J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood). Yet it is a good one: well-written, well-plotted. Always a big plus, it’s part of a series, which means that if your tastes weren’t met by one in particular, chances are, if you keep at it, you’ll love another one.
Definitely worth a try.
