Another brilliantly written book by C.D. Hussey! New Orleans is once again the perfect setting for the dark yet sexy vampire society! The well timed and not too obvious romance between Slade and Kate alone, captured my attention and I had a difficult time putting this one down! To my surprise, this story also included a clever mystery which enhanced and allowed the two main character's romance to feel more organic. Absolutely loved this gem and seriously cannot wait for Ms. Hussey's next book!

This is the second in Hussey's 'paranormal but not supernatural' Human Vampires series. This sequel doesn't disappoint. The story and characters pull you in from the first paragraph. Those who read the first book, La Luxure, will recognize most of the characters here. If you didn't, don't be concerned, it is a totally stand alone story set in the same bar and locale. Slade is the gorgeous and seriously built thirty-something bartender. He is tired of the singles scene and wants to find what Armand and Julia (bar owners and friends) have found - love and acceptance. Running the bar in Armand's absence, he doesn't have a chance to go out and find someone, he figures someone will just have to come to him there in the bar. When she does, he's blown away not only by her looks but by her feisty hellcat nature. Kate is a young twenty-something lady a bit into the Goth scene who decides she wants to learn more about the Vampire subculture she's heard about. When she finds she is attracted to Slade, who she thinks is a playa, she is shocked at herself but she can't seem to stay away from him. Lohr, a favorite artist of Kate's, is a painter and photographer enjoying moderate success and has declared himself the king of vampires. She is stunned when he comes onto her and is later creeped out by his attentions even though he seems to be her type - the opposite of Slade. Turns out she has reason to be wary of him. The author says, "I look at La Luxure like you're viewing New Orleans and the [vampire subculture] through a tourist's eyes. And with de Sang, you already live there." While you certainly can read this book without having read the first one, I suggest reading the first one for the mystery and intrigue and stay awhile to read this second and get to know the characters and the subculture a little better. The sexy scenes in this one are so hot, I think I saw steam coming out of my computer while I was reading it. There are a couple scenes in the bar, one on a motorcycle and when they get to the bed, oh my... I fell in love with Slade in this story. And of course Armand from the first book is pretty awesome too. Hussey is able to draw you into the story and doesn't let you go until the end. I was lucky to be on the editing team for this story and before you think that gave me undue bias for this story, check out my review of the first book which I read and reviewed.
