Note: While this review will be spoiler free, it does make reference to previous books. If you haven’t started this series yet, check out VBC’s review of book 1, Raphael.

A brutal murder and assault in the Pacific Northwest brings Raphael, Vampire Lord of the West to Washington. Someone has attacked his vampires and that is unforgivable. With his mate Cynthia by his side, he must find and punish those responsible.

A panicked summons from her Sire, Lucien, has Sophia rushing home from Rio to Vancouver, Canada. When she arrives, it is only to find a mystery. Lucien is missing, his link to his vampire children present but weak, and a damning letter. Acting on the contents of the letter, Sophia requests safe passage to Washington to find Lucien before his actions destroy them all.

When the vampire world touches his town, Colin Murphy, former Navy Seal, suddenly finds himself tied up in a world where he was suddenly not the biggest, baddest guy in the room. And then Sophia breezes back into his life. The one that got away.

The deadly circumstances bring Sophia and Colin into Raphael’s sphere–and that is every bit as dangerous as the killers they are hunting. They must find a way to work with one another if they want to survive.

I will get this out of the way first: Sophia is by far the weakest link for me in the Vampires in America series. It is well written, advances the overall series, and there is plenty of Cyn and Raphael. I loved Colin and the relationship he builds with Cyn. In what is probably a betrayal of my gender, I just did not warm up to Sophia. At all. I am mad at myself for feeling that way. If I am honest, Cyn and Raphael are really the stars of this book. Sophia and Colin are for sure present, but I think Sophia as a character suffers for the amount of page time that we spend with the original couple.

Having said that, this is yet again another important link in the series. Sophia is a good book. It is a sexy, sexy book. The twists and turns are exciting, the action is crazy, Cyn and Raphael are still the best.

This is still fairly early in this series so there is still a lot of setup, but as with previous books this one just makes you more excited for the next. There is just something special about this series and I really cannot recommend it enough.

Sexual content: graphic sex
