Title: Nightlord Lover
Warrior vampire Garrick Labar guards the secrets of the Guild. His comrade--vampire and sorcerer Ramon Travere--enforces the uneasy alliance between mortals and immortals. When Larissa Devine moves into town, both Garrick and Ramon are mesmerized and enraptured by her. They crave to claim her as their crimson swan and lover. But a new arrival is fair game and if they don’t claim her first, a band of renegades will.
Larissa finds a blistering-hot ménage with her protectors too intoxicating to resist. The immortals can’t deny their sexual attraction for her and sense her blood pulsing hot and furious when they’re close. Erotic desires thrust her into a world of danger and seduction. When the renegade vampires attempt to destroy a hundred years of peace, Larissa is caught in the crossfire. Eternal love and carnal nights can be her future if she survives.

“Eternal nights awaken the sensual hunger that drives me into the shadows, searching for the one to ease the agony and fill the need. Lust for sex, lust for blood, lust to satiate the beast. She’s there waiting, unaware of the savage within me. Her sublime beauty brings me to my knees and shatters my soul. Vaporous memories surface from the old days, stirred by her likeness to the one from two centuries ago. That’s our curse and hope, we who are immortal, to meet another doppelganger lover of the one we lost. And there is always another, who appears over time to taunt, to torture or to save. Perhaps this time I will love again…or will it be my final destruction?”
What a wonderful way to start a Vampire story. It kind of says it all. I could almost leave you with just this, but that would probably be a rather unsatisfying review. Especially since the blurb mentions ménage and this paragraph does not. So I will have to dig deep and see if I can find some wonderfully profound words to go with this. (Don’t count on it.)
This story opens with our heroine, Larissa Devine, getting ready for her opening of a lingerie shop – Silk Fantasies – in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Lovely name for a fresh start. It is near the end of the day and Larissa is indulging herself by trying on a lovely French nightgown when her new landlord – Garrick Labar – surprises her with a visit. It is, of course, lust – er – I mean love at first sight. However, as always, there must be conflict. How about the fact he is a vampire?
Wait, no that isn’t entirely where all the conflict is. How about a competition, if you will, with another Vampire, Lazaro and his maker, Kashia. Talk about their own agendas!
Oh the ménage? Ramon Travere is the “handyman” Garrick sends over to help with any repairs that may be needed. He is also a vampire and he suddenly starts showing up in some pretty hot dreams/fantasies that Larissa has. *fanning self*
And I cannot forget to mention one of my favorite characters in this story – Jordan. She is “mortal.” Garrick sends Jordan over to help out in the shop – he will cover the wages. A poor little rich girl looking for a friend. Actually she is so much more than that.
I liked these characters. Building their back stories was interesting. They all have issues of one sort or another. No surprise there. As can be expected, the vampires have more issues, but that may be because they have been around for a couple hundred years. But all are strong and trying to make the best of what they have in the here and now, in spite of what may have been in times past.
The world that this takes place is much like the world we live in except, in smaller communities there is a symbiotic relationship between the mortals and the immortals. Therefore, only the people in these small towns know of the existence of vampires. It’s all negotiated and contracted. The mortals agree to feed the vampires, and the vampires will protect them, and the slayers kind of act as sheriffs. All quite civilized. Did I mention Lazaro and Kashia and their own agenda? Yep. Conflict.
There is some nice bloody action, so I hope you aren’t squeamish. Some wonderfully hot sex. *sigh* And a sweet happy ever after, literally.
This was a nice little read. I hope to see more of this world. I would like to know if Jordan ever gets her hea.
