    Fail.

    I know I shouldn't be too harsh considering this is a monthly romance, but I am having a difficult time finding its redeeming qualities. I found this novel repetative and lacking sufficient descriptions. Also, for a romance, I had zero success connecting to the characters and thier plight - perhaps due to the abrupt beginning. "Nocturn" is an exciting monthly issue, but "Death Calls" just didn't cut it.

    The most fabulous paranormal romance I have ever read is "Full Moon Rising" by Keri Arthur. Check it out - its amazing!

    Outstanding!

    FBI Agent Diana Reyes and her partner, David, were investigating a money-laundering operation when they stumbled upon a CIA case. There had been an experimental prototype for a hand-held smart bomb delivery system stolen from a military base, along with the warheads for same. The Cuban Democratic Army 'CDA' purchased the stolen weapon. (The CDA is a domestic paramilitary group.) Rupert, with the CIA, must work with Diana and her team in tracking down the stolen items before they are used. It is obvious from the beginning that Rupert does not like the fact that Diana is the Special Agent in Charge instead of himself, but he must deal with his own ego about it. .............. At the same time, Diana is dealing with her unusual personal life. Diana's boyfriend is Ryder Latimer, a vampire. When she fell in love with him a couple of years ago, she knew that there were things she would give up, such as never having children. Now that she is seeing her friends pregnant, Diana is not so sure that it is a fair trade after all. Even her brother and his wife is due to have their first child any day now. Diana needs some time and space away from Ryder to think. .............. Ryder is not happy with Diana putting some distance between them, but his honor forces him to give her the time and space she requests. Seeing her with an old college boyfriend hurts, but this is for Diana to decide. Ryder is soon busy dealing with Stacia who has arrived in the area. She is one of the elders, over two thousand years old. With her strong powers, she can manipulate anyone's mind to do her bidding, even other vampires, and she has set her sights on Ryder. ............... Ryder still manages to keep an eye on Diana and her safety. As much as possible anyway. Diana has forced Ryder to promise that should something happen to her, he would let her die and not turn her into a vampire. But even as Ryder makes the vow, he wonders if he would be able to keep it. ......................... ***** Out-freaking-standing! Nocturne is a brand new line of paranormal romances by Silhouette. It looks like author Caridad Piñeiro will help be a big help in making it a smashing success. I found myself hooked from the very first page. Do yourself a favor and make sure you have plenty of reading time before you open the cover. I did not stop reading until the entire story was completed. I riveting masterpiece. *****

    A fascinating, innovative, and passionate vampire romances

    After a two years relationship with the vampire Ryder, Diane has second thoughts because if she stays with him she will never have children. She also knows how lonely she was before she met him, but she also does not want him to see her grow old. She rejects the notion of becoming a vampire and spending eternity with her beloved. She asks him to leave, which he reluctantly does now she must forget him and move on.---------- While working on an FBI case investigating the ties between the Cuban Democratic Party and a drug cartel, Diane reunites with her first love Alex, who is undercover inside the CDP. Alex informs Diane that the CDP possess a weapon that they plan to use to either destroy the U.N. or the Cuban Mission. He also makes it clear he wants her she knows that with him she can lead a normal life, but he does not bring out the passion that Ryder does.----------------- Caridad Pinero writes fascinating, innovative, and passionate vampire romances as few authors can. Ryder and Diane are star-crossed lovers fearing their respective dark side while rejoicing in the light of their humanity. Yet her doubts that include his vampirism, her humanity, and Alex make a relationship with Ryder improbable as she knows who is better for her and who brings out the inner fire in her. The investigation adds to an understanding of a heroine who knows time is against her in more ways than just preventing a tragedy. This is a superb supernatural romantic suspense thriller with the need of a sequel starring a two millennium old vampiress who has hardly a scratch of humanity left in her.------------------- Harriet Klausner
