Publisher's Summary

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 getting 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.

Action Packed

this book is the first book i have ready by DB Reynolds. I had seen this before and have intended to try it but just have not gotten around to it. I got a chance to get this book free from the narrator in exchange for an honest review. Wow, I did not know what i was missing. This is exactly the type of paranormal romance/urban fantasy i love. Raphael, the vampire lord of the west hires P I Cyn(ex cop) to find his sister. Raphael is intimidating and everyone is afraid of him. Cyn, however, stands up to him and goes against him when he tries to tell her what to do. There is lots of action, some hot romance. No this does not end with happily ever after but the story is continued and i have faith that Raphael and Cyn will finally get together. I can't wait to read more of this series. I think i have found me a new author. The narrator is great. She really brought the characters for me.

Just when you think you've heard the last of a good vampire book BANG this series hits Audible's vast Library and you dare to hope that it's going to be good. Well I can happily tell you it's not only good..…. it's positively great.

The dark, handsome, sexy and very Alpha Lord of the West Coast Vampires Raphael needs the help of a P.I. and Cynthia (aka Cyn) is more than capable at what she does but isn't prepared for the raw power that oozes out of Raphael he rules, he orders and all obeys him but although Cyn is frightened she is also fearless. Their attraction slowly simmers in the background then all of a sudden it erupts and the sex is frenzied, powerful and memorable and the sexual tension becomes intense. The romance runs alongside the other main plot of kidnapping, spies, murder, Russian vamps, a take-over bid, intrigue and some tense nail-biting times as the well described plot of who, when and why plays out with characters that are loveable, likeable, interesting and some that are just plain evil.

Worth a credit? It was exciting, fast-paced, addictive, action-packed, fresh and I couldn't stop listening (being desperate to get to the HEA part) BUT shock and horror, no it's not a cliffhanger, it's a 'to be continued' listen which was equally a 'rip you hair out and scream' moment and very frustrating. However, very credit-worthy and an auto download for book 2 and I only hope that the wait is going to be a short one….. because I want it like yesterday!!!!.
