"a perfect blend of mystery, suspense, paranormal and romance!"
We are back in the European Otherworld city of Nouveau
Monde with Olena Petrovich, vampiress and CSI agent; who is
excited about her first time being lead investigator. The
case starts out weird; with a bank robbery but no money was
taken, and only some of the safety deposit boxes were
Unfortunately for Olena her excitement does not last long,
within minutes of being on the case Interpol agent Cale
Braxton shows up and tries to take over. Wondering why
a "human" agency would be interested in a simple bank
robbery and how Cale arrived on the scene so fast, Olena
calls Gabriel, her boss. He orders her to assist Cale on
the case and to keep him safe.
Cale has to overcome his own prejudice of vampires as he
and Olena follow leads that take them into the night life,
and some of the seedier side of Nouveau Monde. As the
tension builds, they not only have to fight off the bad
guys but their growing attraction for each other.
Vivi Anna still has it, a perfect blend of mystery,
suspense, paranormal and romance! In this fifth installment
of the Valorian Chronicles series, she shows why she is
still on my must read list! I really like how with each new
book we are able to see more sides to the characters. Ms.
Anna is able to portray characters in such a way that they
seem to come alive for me. It is not often that you can say
the fifth book in a series is better than the previous, but
this is the case with The Vampire's Kiss.
Note: this book can be read as a stand alone but I am
sure that once you read one it will be just like potato
chips, so here are the previous books in order.
1. Blood Secrets (Caine Valorian and Eve Grant's story)
2. Dark Lies (Jace Jericho and Tala Channing's story)
3. Veiled Truth (Lyra Magice and Theron LeNoir's story)
4. Vampire's Quest (Kellen Falcon and Sophie St. Clair)
