The seventh book in the Vampires in America series is an intriguing vampire romance that keeps you on the edge of your seat. One of the most powerful vampires in North America, Aden is waging war on others of his kind in a struggle to become the next Lord of the Midwest, but in the midst of the deadliest fight of his life, Aden is hellbent on destroying slavery and those who profit from it. When the biggest story of her life cost the life of a friend, investigative reporter Sidonie Reid realizes she has to do much more that write about it. When she gains entry to the highest level of vampire society, Sidonie finds herself confronting the raw sexuality that is Aden. And when they join forces they are caught up in a dark passion that neither can resist. This fast paced plot keeps the reader on their toes with lots of suspense, action and romance. The author brings the story to life with well written words that paint vivid images and make the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The strong and bewitching characters are easily related to with clear motivations that grab the readerâ??s attention and keep it to the very end. The chemistry between Aden and Sidonie explodes off the pages and the frequent sex scenes leave the reader smoldering with passion. The emotions and personalities of the characters leap off the pages and the tension both romantic and suspense, build throughout the story ensuring that the reader is totally caught up in the story. The author has created a fantastic world with vampires with some unique elements that I have not seen giving this thrilling story a fresh feel. I Have not read the other books in this series,(I will be remedying that)but I had no trouble following the story. There are hints and clues leading up to a main conflict, but this just adds more intrigue to the more

This series got to my heart after book 2 and I believe that each new character will get my love as the previous ones. However, when I started this book, Aden was so dark, so lethal, that he scared me and I thought I couldn't love him or appreciate his story. This book has also a theme that disturbs me: slavery. Well, he's dark allright and lethal. It wasn't right at the beginning but he got my heart as he got Sidonie's. Aden proved to be a vampire that respects his people and fights for them. He's capable of loving someone and taking care of innocents. The plot behind the slavery going on in Chicago was terrible but also intesting from a reader POV. I loved this story and knowing this new vampire more

Investigative reporter, Sidonie Reid, is on a quest for justice in the name of a friend who was murdered after being enslaved by vampires. Determined to bring down the slave syndicate, she enlists the help of Aden a powerful vampire that is predicted to become the next Lord of the Midwest. Unbeknown to Sidonie, Aden was a slave in his human life and will not tolerate slavery in his soon-to-be territory. I’ve been wanting to read the Vampires in America Series for a long time so when I got the opportunity to review this book, I had to grab it. I usually prefer to read a series in order, but I could follow this book with no problems what so ever. I definitely want to go back and read the rest of the books in order this time. Being from Chicago, I do like that this book takes place there. However, even if it did not I would still love this book. The plot is captivating. The characters are well defined. This was the first book I read by D.B. Reynolds. She is a talented author. I will definitely read more of her work. ARC provided publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest more

How on earth does DBR keep upping her game? Wheaties? Because that's what she's done - again - with ADEN. Where many series can get stale at this point, DB's vamps just gets yummier and, in ADEN, more dangerous and Alpha. The world-building gets more detailed. The romance gets hotter (and I do mean HOT!). And the 5 star reviews keep flowing. Brava, Ms. Reynolds. Another fabulous entry in the Vampires in America series. Thank you!!!show more

Compelling, powerful and passionate; this merely scrapes the surface of who ADEN really is! My expectations of each new story in this series are always high, as I have been a fervent fan since the release of Raphael in 2009. However, the depth of complexity and evolution of the world and characters that D.B.Reynolds has created never ceases to leave me gasping in awe. ADEN is a multifaceted creature, with a violent, dark persona and yet utterly focused and committed to achieving his goal; becoming the next Lord of the Midwest. His personal demons prevent him from allowing any closeness that may result in treachery or deception, and his only affection is for those he calls his own. Sidonie; well she�??�??�??�??�¢??�??�?�¢�¢?�¬�¢?�¢s a breath of fresh air. While Ms Reynolds has provided many strong female leads in the past, none have come close to the strength of presence as Raphael�??�??�??�??�¢??�??�?�¢�¢?�¬�¢?�¢s Cyn. However, Sidonie is a force of nature in her own right; her depth of compassion, fearless loyalty and overall magnetism are captivating. The description of what is yet to come for the Vampires in America ensures that the reader feels like this is just the beginning, as there�??�??�??�??�¢??�??�?�¢�¢?�¬�¢?�¢s so much more to come. While Raphael & Cyn continue to be my favourite couple, there is no denying that ADEN is Ms Reynolds most intense, riveting and sensual book by far!show more
