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 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.

Cynthia is a private eye, former cop, who finds herself employed by a vampire, to find someone who´s been kidnapped. Raphael is a Vampire Lord, powerful and not used to anyone, least of all a human, not taking cover when he bristles. She´s a kick ass heroine and i loved seeing her take charge and not just roll over when a Vampire came around. The only thing that kept me from giving this a 5 is the "to be continued" - it´s not a cliffie but TG i´ve already got the next book in the series, =)show more

In this brand new world where Vampires are known to mankind and a force to be reckoned with, Raphael is the ultimate leader. Vampire Lords rule their territories with an iron fist and demand loyalty and acquiesce from their people, Vampire and human alike. However, as with all cultures, the Vampire race and its leaders are constantly faced with danger, power plays, and deception in a world where strength reigns supreme, and greed can result in stupidity. I have read many Vampire Series, but after reading Raphael, have become a staunch D.B.Reynolds fan and know this series will continue to be brilliant. The Vampires in America are dark, violent and powerful, yet totally devoted to those they love. I strongly recommend this series to even one that loves Vamps, and no one, has failed to love it!! Here’s a little snippet to whet your appetite: “Raphael came through the door like a child's nightmare, his eyes glowing an almost solid silver with wrath, his gleaming fangs fully extended, blood painting his mouth a brilliant red, dripping from his chin to shine wetly against the tattered remains of his black shirt. His huge chest was heaving with the fury of his breath, and his hands curled into claws as his gaze found her and he growled a warning. 'Release her, human.' 'Who are you? the man rasped, fear taking away his breath, coarsening his voice. 'Release her.' The man tightened his grip, 'Come closer and she dies.' Rachael's mouth widened in a terrifying smile, 'You think to bargain with me?” Can you see why I love him?show more
