On the run from a master vampire, young vampire Layla Black flees London to reinvent herself as the singer of an Eighties cover band in Boston. Devon St. Clair is the bounty hunter hired to track her down. As a shapeshifter with extraordinary skills, his reputation is known throughout the supernatural world. Capturing Layla should be an easy gig that will net a nice profit.

The situation doesn’t go as Devon plans. He wants Layla in his bed, but shapeshifters and vampires don’t mix. They should hate each other, but instead they’re keeping the sheets steamy. When circumstances force them on the run together, their preconceived notions are challenged. If they can evade those hunting them and convince his fellow shapeshifters to help her even though she’s a vampire, they just might have a chance to explore where all that hot, sweaty sex can take them.


Review:  The cover of the book looked hot and I had to read to see if the story would be just as hot. You have a vampire named Layla who is on the run run from a bad vampire named Stefano. He lied about Layla and she knew she had to get away. She reinvents herself in a band named Bloodlust Diamond and names herself Angelica. She is on the run and doesn’t know about the bounty hunter that has been sent to get her.

Devon is a shifter and he believes the assignment that he is on will be easy as pie. He will get her, turn her in and take the money. He never counted on the way she makes him feel. He feels more alive and he knows he has to have her. I couldn’t imagine being in his shoes. Maybe he will make the right choice and maybe he won’t. It is now time for you to get this book and see what happens.

The band adds the the drama and suspense of this book. There is just so much going on that you have to read the whole book to see what kind of adventure the author takes you on. This book is very addictive and worth the time to read it after you get past the slowness at first. I have read books by this author and I loved them. I also did what I hate to do; I started on the fourth book instead of reading the series from the start. I didn’t feel that I was missing anything and I can’t wait to see what the author will write next.
