Christian Duvall was determined to be the Lord of the South. All he needed to do was defeat any challengers as Anthony, the present lord, was stepping down. Although, Christian will find that Anthony will be a lot of trouble especially with the woman Christian wanted.
Natalie Vivant Gaudet was a forensic accountant who was working for Anthony but only because he had blackmailed her. She will be working at the office when Christian walks into the office. Natalie will instantly want Christian and she will do what she can to protect him.
Christian is the tenth book to the series Vampires in America by D.B. Reynolds. I really loved this book. I wasn’t sure how I would like Christian since his sire was Mathilda who was very evil. Christian for me was a character I could easily like. He was a warrior and had good intentions with wanting to be the Lord of the South. He was also very strong, much stronger than any other vampire had known. This helped with the fight scenes which were in the book and the challenges, and those fight scenes were intense. Natalie was a smart woman being a forensic account, which I loved. I thought that in the beginning she was a little too much with the desire for Christian but I of course wanted them together. I did like that she was a woman who could handle herself. She was by no means like Cyn but she could handle some of the bad things that had come her way.
Anthony was a very devious lord. I disliked him right away as he tried to cheat and used his vampire powers to do that. I was horrified that he wanted Natalie and would use his mind control to make her want him. Luckily Christian was a strong enough vampire to stop Anthony before Natalie’s fate was sealed.
I am reading Compelled next.
