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.
Cynthia (Cyn) Leighton, a former LAPD cop turned private investigator, gets an unexpected case as she’s used to getting cases from cheating spouses. Her half sister, Holly, is temporary staying with Cyn.
Cyn rescued Lonnie awhile back from becoming BBQ and asks him for a favor. Lonnie is forced to take Lord Raphael to Cyn's office. Cyn is not happy with Lonnie, but takes the case anyway.
Raphael is fascinated by Cyn and really doesn't understand why he feels this way for a woman, much less a human. The more time Cyn spends with Raphael, the more she feels attracted to him. Can Cyn stay away from temptation that Raphael represents? Will Raphael let Cyn under his skin? Who is really behind Alexandra's kidnapping? Your answers await you in Raphael.
I love vampire stories! This series starts out with a bang! Raphael is every inch the Alpha Male he appears to be on the cover which doesn't really do my imagination justice. What can I say about Cyn? She totally rocks as person! Cyn holds her own with Raphael despite the powerful lust he incites in her. I love what the author has done so far with this series and can't wait to see what direction it goes in next.
