"Sexy vampire suspense"

Rosa is a talented singer in a vampire bar. Usually leaving the bar patrons feeling happy and wanting to party more. Lately she can't get it together, on stage or off. Her best friend is attacked, shot and turned into a vampire. She can't get the images of that night out of her head, including the Watcher Warrior, Vane, holding her and keeping her from falling apart.

Vane is one of the Vampire Watchers, defenders of civilian vampire and innocent humans alike. Vane always has a woman or fight going on, but since meeting Rosa, he can't get her out of his mind.

Vane thinks Rosa is the most beautiful vampire he has ever seen, and that she deserves a man who can treat her like a queen and give her the house with a picket fence. Rosa thinks her life is so unstable and she is too inadequate to be with Vane.

During a mandatory week off to clear her head, her life is turned completely upside down. She is being stalked unawares, and her jealously toward Vane's past exploits lead her straight into the arms of the stalker. She is abducted, drugged, and placed center stage for the final scene in his attempt to take over the city, kill the Watchers, and introduce a drug tailored to Vampires.

I like the way the book switches back and forth between Rosa and Vane's point of view. You get to see what is going on in their heads and hearts. It also showcases Rosa and Vane's struggle to accept what the other person needs and not what they think the other person wants.

I am waiting on the next installments of the Watchers: Midnight Revelations (Watchers Book 3) and Midnight Savior (Watchers Book 4) for the other Watchers' Cell-mates stories.

Sometimes a rose is more than a rose.

The countdown is on for Louisville, Kentucky’s fireworks show and the Watchers are in place. Rogue vampires, being the ultimate party crashers they are, are expected to join the revelry.

Rosa Bella, standing-room-only singer at the Black Panther Lounge, has her own chaos to manage. As a vampire who manages to blend in with society, she doesn’t need any more complications. But a gorgeous one has just turned her life upside down—Vane, a Watcher assigned to hunt down and eliminate Rogues prowling the downtown streets.

Vane, dubbed “Latin Lover” by his fellow Watchers, fills his nights with his favorite letter of the alphabet, “F”—females and food. But nothing fills his empty heart like Rosa’s soft, sexy body. Still, a Watcher’s life has no room for attachments, even one who can defend herself with a pair of red stilettos.

Then two unexpected players join the game, and Rosa is thrust into the middle as the prize. They never expected their relationship to be a bed of roses, but as the festival-ending horse race looms, the only way to survive to the finish line is to face the dangers—together.

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel

Warning: Contains sex, drugs, rock and roll, and a sexy vampire with a big appetite.
