"Tasty morsel of a novel!"

Vampire Alexandre Saint-Juste, head of the Council of Elders, has defeated his enemies Cass and Mikhail, two rebels who wanted to lead the preternatural world. His two deadly foes vanish without a trace, carrying a valuable book that Alexandre wants back. He doesn't have time to do anything more than capture the two vampires and regain the book but thoughts of Sunni keep intruding on his mind.

Sunni is a young vampire who has loved Alexandre ever since he saved her life decades ago. She sees beneath the stuffy, reserved and often cold man to the caring person underneath. She is determined to prove to him that she can help him. Cass returns wanting to co-rule the council with him once again. When the time arrives to make the announcement, Sunni puts herself between Alexandre and a lethal injection.

There is an entire invisible underground of modern day preternatural creatures and J. C. Wilder does a brilliant job of making the reader believe such a world exists. The romance between the two protagonists is believable and emotionally moving but the high point of SINS OF THE FLESH is the action sub-plot where good and evil vie for supremacy leading to a very tasty morsel of a novel.
