One new addiction for you!
You need to read about Cyn and Raphael!
Raphael (Vampires in America) by 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 had this one on my to-read list for a while. It had for my opinion a little to much 5 stars here on Amazon. SO it almost sounded to good to be true. But it is actually an amazing book. I have read it in on evening… and ordered right away the second book. Love to find a amazing series that already contains a few books. Now I can just read on without having to wait for a year 🙂
Raphael (Vampires in America) by D. B. Reynolds is faste paced with amazing world building and even better characters. Fun with much romance and hot highlights. Little bit of a cliff hanger at the end but that just keeps it fun and triggers me to desperately continue with book 2. Well done… Delving now in book 2.
Jabril (Vampires in America #2) by D.B. Reynolds
Houston, Texas-Cowboy boots, baseball and journeys to the stars . . . right? Wrong. Because Houston is also home to Jabril Karim, one of the eight powerful Vampire Lords who control all of North America. And as Private Investigator Cynthia Leighton will soon discover, not all Vampire Lords are created equal. For Jabril is the face of evil in the new world, a vampire who values no life but his own, who enslaves those he desires, steals whatever he covets and destroys anyone who stands in his way. Running from L.A. and its seductive Vampire Lord, Raphael, Cyn sees the Houston job as a welcome refuge, a place to get away and heal her broken heart.
But Texas will be no vacation. For in Jabril Karim, Cyn will confront a true enemy, one who will go to any lengths to satisfy his lusts, enrich his coffers and expand his power. Fighting for the lives of two young sisters, Cyn’s journey will take her through the streets of Houston and back to L.A., where the human police are determined to bring Raphael down for the murder of one of their own.
But the danger doesn’t end there. For Jabril has set his sights on Cyn, and he will stop at nothing to have her.
Love, the ache in your heart when you meet the one. It can take you to soaring heights; and it can leave you bleeding in the wreckage. Loyalty, the thing which binds a Vampire Lord to his children for eternity … unless it rots from within, birthing hatred. Betrayal, it comes in many forms and from many sources … love … loyalty … betrayal.
War has come to the North American vampires, and Vampire Lords are reaching across territorial lines to strengthen allies and weaken enemies. The most powerful Lord of them all, Raphael, could change the course of the war and determine who raises the final banner of victory.
But at what price? And will his mate, Cyn, be the one to pay it?

Hunted, the fate of the foolish when they think to become the hunter.
The Lord of the Midwest is dead, and the powerful vampires of North America are gathering to choose his successor. The Vampire Council will be there to oversee the competition and to keep the violence to a bloody minimum, including Raphael, who will do whatever it takes to ensure the victor is a vampire he can trust. But someone is determined to stop Raphael and his mate, Cyn, from ever reaching Chicago, a hunter who may soon become… the hunted.
