Bran Berry has been after Sahara Silver since he first meet her but all she wanted was for him to join her bodyguards. Though Bran can tell she wants more, but business comes first. Then Sahara will be taken and it will be up to Bran and the other bodyguards to find Sahara.
Fast Burn is the fourth book to the series Body Armor by Lori Foster. I enjoyed going back to this series and this was a very good book. Although, there was one line that had me laughing. It was from the movie Taken. The one line that he is saying to his daughter in the second movie, “I am going to be taken”. That had me laughing out loud because it was too familiar.
I liked Bran but there were times when you wanted to punch him. He was a little controlling with the relationship but I could forgive him because he was a good guy. He wanted to do protect Sahara, he just had to admit that she was strong on her own and he does, it just takes some time. Sahara was a strong woman who knew how to kick butt, though she was a little out of her league with kidnappers. Although, she did not make it easier for those kidnappers.
There were some twists within the book that was interesting. I kind of wish there was a little more detail with the outcome but it was still good.
Sophia will enlist the help of her fellow lords to help find her mate, Colin. She had been betrayed by one of her own and needed help. She will entrust the help of Eleanor her trusted bodyguard and Lucifer who was recommended by Aden.
Eleanor and Lucifer will be thrust together to find Sophia’s mate, Colin. The task will be difficult as no one knows who was the vampire that betrayed Sophia. Eleanor and Lucifer will investigate and as they spend time together they will find that the love they shared years ago had not changed.
Lucifer is the eleventh book to the Vampires in America series by D.B. Reynolds. I really loved this book and it was gripping especially with Colin being taken by those he had trusted. I was hoping that Colin would not be killed which would break Sophia’s heart, it was breaking her heart with every photo she had received of Colin’s torture. I appreciated that Sophia’s part was limited and it was more focused on Eleanor and Lucifer who were searching for Colin.
Eleanor and Lucifer were interesting. Their relationship was lustful and quickly turned to love when Eleanor had still been human. Their relationship ended when Eleanor was turned. She had thought that Lucifer would no longer want her. I thought Eleanor could have tried and gone back but in the end it had not matter because they had found each other again. I liked them together, they were each strong in their abilities as vampires, Lucifer’s stronger of course but Eleanor was no slouch.
I think the epilogue was really well written especially the words that Raphael had said to the council, which ended the story.
Raphael and Cyn must face a dangerous situation when someone from Raphael’s past kidnaps him while he is in Hawaii. An enemy from Europe has descended and wants Raphael’s territory.
Deception is the ninth book to the series Vampires in Americas by D. B. Reynolds. I really loved this book. It was intense with Raphael’s kidnapping and how Cyn and the team find a way to save him.
Cyn’s character is once again a bad ass. With every book she is getting more and more blood thirsty. I don’t want her to appear so invincible but I do love the kick ass attitude. She is a woman who would do whatever she needed to protect her mate. I loved that Raphael and Cyn have a connection as that helps them talk to each other in their dreams, which was helpful.
The villain, Mathilda was pretty viscous but really only in the cunning way. She was a woman who liked to get her way and when she didn’t get her way she had a temper tantrum. Mathilda’s way of capturing Raphael was underhanded as she using a lot of vampires and magic. The magic aspect was interesting which it sounds like there will be more with Nick’s character. I had liked Nick in the first book because he was just a guy but I don’t want him causing problems. I just really hope that a love triangle doesn’t happen with Cyn, Raphael and Nick. It is not needed.
Vincent Kuxim was the lieutenant of the Lord of Mexico. Everyone knew that he would be the next Lord of Mexico but Vincent was biding his time. Then he will have a bounty hunter come to his home and ask for his help. Vincent will help because it was a favor to Raphael. On their journey Vincent will quickly discover things that make him want to over throw his sire the Lord of Mexico.
Lana Arnold was hired to find a vampire and she needed the help of Vincent. Together they travel around Mexico to find the vampire but they will come to an obstacle when Vincent is taken. That will lead to them to some disturbing facts about the Lord of Mexico.
Vincent is the eighth book to the series Vampires in America by D.B. Reynolds. I really loved the book. Vincent and Lana actually reminded me of Cyn and Raphael. Although, Vincent was a little more free with the smiles towards Lana as he liked to tease her a lot. Vincent’s character was intriguing. He was carefree and loved women but he had a blood thirsty attitude when he needed to protect those who were being mistreated. Lana misunderstood him but she learns differently. Lana’s character was a bounty hunter which was cool. She was very good at her job. I also liked that she fought the attraction with Vincent. She of course givens in but it does take some time.
The mystery behind the European vampire is still a mystery but it is intriguing and I want to know more. Enrique, Lord of Mexico was basically an ass. He thought he was all powerful, which he was though he underestimated Vincent’s power. The fight scene was well done and I liked the little twist at the end. I thought the scenes with the mistreated vampires had me cheering for Vincent as he protected those who could not.
Cyn and Raphael have faced many dangers together but now there will be one coming to them, a spy. This spy will have one goal in mind which is to take Raphael’s sister to his master.
Unforgiven is a novella, number 7.5 in the series Vampires in America by D. B. Reynolds. I have taken such a hiatus from this series. I wanted the series to grow so I had several to read in a row. So back to the story which I loved. This was a great story to get back into the series because it featured my favorite couple, Cyn and Raphael.
This novella is just a taste of the troubles that are yet to come in the eighth book, which I can’t wait to read. This novella held a lot of substance in a short story. Cyn and Raphael were amazing as usual. I loved how easily the Raphael’s men read the spy and how confident the spy thought himself to be. It was humorous. Then there was Alexandra. She was a character that I never really liked especially after her betrayal in the previous books. She certainly was portrayed well with the spoiled princess routine, though you don’t have to worry about her for long.
The mystery behind the new master who is coming after Raphael is intriguing and I can’t wait to know more.
Lady Iris Jordan had been taken mistakenly. She will be rescued but at the time she had not known that the Duke of Dyemore was trying to rescue her. She will have to stay with him until the Lords of Chaos stop looking for her.
Duke of Dyemore, Raphael, is a cynical man who was trying to help someone in danger, someone that had intrigued him. By saving Iris he set his life and hers in jeopardy.
Duke of Desire is the twelfth book to the series Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt. I liked the book as I always enjoy Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series but I will say this is not my favorite. The series is veering off from the Ghost which I really loved. Although the Lord of Chaos has been intriguing but with this book it is really going into the detail of these men and its a little disturbing.
The character of Iris was a little boring in the previous book but she came alive in this book. I liked that she was a fighter and brave. Raphael’s character is someone who has been damaged a long time ago. Iris will help try and heal him but it will be tough. Raphael will get a revenge of sorts to help stop the group that hurt him.
Now, I have two novellas to read next from the series.
Hugh Fitzroy, the Duke of Kyle was on a mission to stop the Lords of Chaos. He will find help from a boy from St. Giles, Alf. Though Hugh will realize quickly that Alf is more than he appears, specifically that Alf is a girl.
Alf has disguised herself as a boy for as long as she could remember. It was easier to get around St. Giles as a boy. But Alf had another secret, she was also the Ghost of St. Giles. Alf will find herself helping Hugh and that interaction will lead her to have feelings for him.
Duke of Pleasure is the eleventh book to the series Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt. I really loved this book. It has been interesting learning about these vile Lords of Chaos and I loved that the Ghost of St. Giles was a woman.
Hugh’s character to me seemed a little too stuck up in the other books but as I got to know his character I found he was a brave man and committed to his task. Also, that he loved his sons, he just might not be able to show it. Actually Hugh has a problem expressing his feelings no matter what which is evident with how he acts with Alf. Though when push comes to shove Hugh will get it right. Alf’s character was intriguing. She was the one who got the information and she fought to protect those around her. I liked that even when she had to dress up as a lady the real woman was still there and not lost in all the glitz of the ball.
I liked the mystery of the Lords of Chaos. They are the evil guys and they need to be stopped. It looks like they will be here to stay as they will be in the next story. I am wondering who will be the person to stop the group.
I can’t wait to read Duke of Desire which will come out in October of 2017.
