The Blurb: Montreal, Quebec . . . A charming city on the St. Lawrence River, historic, sophisticated, but beneath it all lies an extensive underground where treacherous vampires are plotting to seize the country.
Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire—handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill—who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada’s ruling vampire lord, and it’s up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.
Eleanor Morel lost everything—including the love of her life—when she became a vampire. But now, twenty years later, she’s a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn’t know is that the special hunter she’ll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he’s demanding answers.
Lucifer’s love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they’ll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they’re going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow .
My thoughts: A great entry in this series. The vampires from Europe continue to come to North American to attempt a takeover of the continent. Raphael and the Council will not allow this. In this book, Colin Murphy, the human mate of Sophia, the Lord of Canada, is kidnapped and being tortured by a traitor. Aden, a vampire Lord, sends Lucifer, a hunter to help Sophia locate and rescue Colin. Attempting in the rescue is Eleanor, a trusted fighter for Sophia. Lucifer and Elle have a history together with misunderstandings involved but they remain very much in love with each other. They figure out how to work together for the goal of Colin’s rescue and the culminating battle for control of Canada.
These characters are great. I loved Lucifer. You see the future Lord he will be yet we also see the humanity that remains in him. Eleanor took a little bit to warm up to, but in the end I did like her. Especially after she told Lucifer her back story and why she left and why she thought the way she did. In the end, she was a great fighter and help to Lucifer and Sophia. We also get a hint of Raphael’s next move in the war with the Europeans. I love this series!
