Overview

The national bestselling 'master of erotic prose'(Booklist) delivers the third and final novel in her acclaimed erotic vampire trilogy.

For 150 years, Ethan Templeton has happily followed Don Rafael Perez, vampire patron of Texas. But now Ethan has fallen in love with Stephanie Darling-known as Steve-a Texas Ranger and mere mortal. Unfortunately, a future with Steve is impossible. Because if Ethan turns her into a vampire, the price is execution by Don Rafael-the only one allowed to create vampires in Texas.

But working together to stop a serial killer makes Ethan reconsider the price of forever, especially with Steve's life suddenly in danger. He can't help but think it's worth the gamble-especially if it means he'll save the life of the woman he loves. But will Steve agree-or will she refuse her one chance at eternal life, lust, and love?

I didnt care for this book. It has too much back and forth. I also think the relationships in the book need more depth.

Satisfying Conlusion The conclusion of the Vampires of Texas trilogy is told from the perspectives of vampire Ethan Templeton and Texas Ranger Stephanie ‘Steve’ Darling. Ethan and Steve have been lovers off and on for 15 years. When the war between Celeste and Don Rafael heats up Steve starts putting pieces together and realizes many of the deaths of young women across Texas have been caused by a vampire. Is her lover the serial killer? Or are there more vampires out there? She has a duty to uphold the law, but if it’s her lover will she be able to bring him in? There’s only one way to find out the truth. She has to confront Ethan. Will she survive? I loved this conclusion to the series. This book was almost entirely in the present day. Only the beginning back tracked a bit into the early 1900s. Told mostly from Ethan’s and Steve’s perspective we get a different view of events as they happened in the other books. Many people complained it was confusing or irritating because the story had already been told, but I like seeing a story from another character’s (or characters’) pov. I was able to get a greater grasp on what was happening, so it was a fuller and richer experience for me. I’m a bit sad the story (the trilogy) has ended.

I was really looking forward to this latest installment and was very disappointed. Not enough about Steve and Ethan and too much of what already happened in Rafael and Grania's book.

Texas Ranger Stephanie ¿Steve¿ Reynolds is assigned as lead investigator into the serial killing of women throughout the state. Each victim has the same teeth marks on their necks. A bite Steve recognizes, though she is not a forensic dentist, as belonging to her lover Ethan Templeton or more likely she considers one of his kind.-------------- A vampire charged to keep Texas safe, Ethan knows a rogue has invaded the state. He must bring the killer to justice while also keeping his beloved human Steve safe as he thinks she is a probable target of the homicidal vampire. To keep her from harm, Ethan believes he must convert her into an undead, but he knows that doing this most likely means his demise.-------------- The third ¿Bond¿ Texas vampire thriller (see BLOND OF BLOOD and BOND OF FIRE) is an enjoyable paranormal romantic police procedural. The story line is fast-paced perhaps too fast as events flash by rather rapidly. However, in spite of an acceleration that makes the DC Flash look like the Turtle, fans of the undead world of Diane Whiteside will appreciate Ethan¿s dilemma re the mortal woman he loves.------------- Harriet Klausner
