The Pacific Northwest . . . home to lush forests and constant rain, to lumberjacks and computer geeks, especially those of the vampire kind.
Sophia, beautiful and deadly, has spent the last hundred years dancing her way through the balmy nights and hot-blooded men of South America. But when her Sire sends an urgent summons, Sophia rushes home to Vancouver only to find he has disappeared, leaving nothing behind but three dead vampires and a letter with Sophia’s name on it.
Colin Murphy, a former Navy SEAL, came to the Northwest seeking a quiet place to heal the scars earned in more than a decade at war. But when someone starts killing local vampires and torturing their mates, Colin takes on the mantle of a warrior once again as he sets out to find the killers and do whatever it takes to stop them, even if that means hunting with vampires.
Following her Sire’s trail of death to a small town in northern Washington, Sophia unexpectedly discovers the heat of a South American night in Colin’s arms. But all too soon Sophia and Colin find themselves in a race to uncover the killers before the next dead vampire is Sophia herself.
Sophia travels to Vampire Lord Lucien's Canadian Territory, not knowing if he’s there or not. But she’s not there on a social visit. It seems that during the day, three vampires under his protection are killed and the blame falls squarely on his shoulders.
Lord Raphael awakes angry and grieving that two of his own children were murdered in their sleep. Three day’s later, another vampire's mate is brutally attacked, also during the daylight hours. Sophia, along with everyone else, race against time to find the responsible party.
To solve the mystery of these attacks, Raphael must choose to believe in Sophia's story and in a letter written by Lucien's own hand.
But the crimes have also attracted the local human law enforcement, and it’s someone from Sophia’s past. Colin Murphy, a man who is more of a private security than a cop, meets Sophia again after thinking she was dead for ten years. Colin helps the local vampires in their search for the attackers while he wrestles for his feelings for Sophia. Will they solve the mystery in time? Your answers await you in Sophia.
Sophia is yet another good story in the Vampires in America Series. We see a lot of Cyn and Raphael, but we also learn more about Duncan, Sophia, and Colin, too. I loved what the author did in this book. She showed us what it truly means to be mated to a vampire: the good, the bad, and the ugly. The story was fast paced but left no detail untouched, either. I really enjoy page/chapter turning books and Sophia is right up there with all my other faves! If you haven’t already, please pick up this wonderful series. As for me, anything written by D.B. Reynolds is on my must read list.
