Raphael, Book #1 of the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series
Author: D.B Reynolds
Malibu, California-home to rock-and-roll gods and movie stars, the beautiful, the rich . . . and vampires.
Powerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledged absolute loyalty on their very lives. But when, in a brazen and deadly daylight attack, a gang of human killers kidnaps the one female vampire he'd give his life for, Raphael turns to a human investigator to find his enemies before it's too late.
Cynthia Leighton is smart, tough and sexy, a private investigator and former cop who's tired of spying on cheating spouses and digging out old bank accounts. When Raphael asks for her help in tracking down the kidnappers, Cyn's happy to accept. But she soon realizes her greatest danger comes not from the humans, but from Raphael himself.
Battling Russian mobsters and treacherous vampires, and betrayed by those they trusted, Cyn and Raphael find themselves fighting for their lives while caught up in a passion of blood and violence that is destined to destroy them both.
I'm a bibliophile. I read, A LOT. And I'm pretty genre specific as well, staying to the Paranormal side of things. With that said, I've pretty much run through the vampire sub-genres out there and was starting to think that I couldn't find one that would 'wow' me anymore. I was wrong!
Vampires in America is what I like to call Urban Fantasy Romance... it has the best of both worlds and then some, and Raphael was an amazing first installment in this superb new series.
If you like your heroes uber alpha and unapologetic about their otherness, your heroines kick-a$$, your action intense, your romance steamy and spontaneous and your mystery intriguing, then you simply MUST check out this book and series!
LITERAL ADDICTION gives Raphael 4 Skulls and would recommend it to everyone! I can't wait to keep reading...
