Description from amazon.com:
From award-winning author D. B. Reynolds, nine stories of seduction and intrigue set in her Vampires in America universe. Note: this is a collection of short stories, not a complete novel. For the first time in print … The Vampire Vignettes From New Year’s Eve on the beaches of Malibu, to love in a penthouse over Manhattan, and a challenge fought on a snowy night in Montreal, Reynolds takes us behind the scenes with seven steamy Vignettes featuring her ultimate alpha Vampire Lords and their beautiful and independent mates. And Never Before Published – Two brand new, full-length short stories. You Belong To Me follows Duncan and his mate Emma as they consolidate power in his new territory, while generating plenty of heat in the bedroom. And then it’s time for The Wedding, as readers join Rajmund and Sarah for their big weekend … and Cyn’s girls-night-out bachelorette party. Unfortunately, some local kidnappers have other plans, and Cyn and Sarah will have to outwit their abductors before Raphael and Raj start hunting, and the entire wedding is ruined!
This is a delightful collection of nine, very sexy short stories featuring the vampires and their lovers from DB Reynolds’ wonderful Vampires In America Series. This is my all time favorite series in the Paranormal/ Urban Fantasy Romance genre.
The short stories, vignettes, were first published on Ms. Reynolds’ website except for the last two in this volume. It was her way to appease fans who were clamoring for more about these hunky vampires while waiting for her next book. That said, you might think that these are just erotic tales if you haven’t read the series of novels. For those of us who have read and reread the series, these stories help to flesh out the personalities of the romantic couples while giving us another glimpse into their lives. With the two new stories we are treated, once again, to can’t-put-it-down writing by this accomplished author.
Reynolds’ Vampire Lords are Alpha males to the max, but become putty in the hands of their mates. Their mates are no simpering shrinking violets but are strong self assured women who have found the love of their lives. There is always lots of action and adventure in the series. The vignettes have some action but are more centered on the personal interaction of vampire and mate.
This volume is a welcome addition to the series as we look forward to the next in the series LUCAS later this year.
