There is no dearth of vampire romance stories out there, but this one has a display of tactical stratagem and weaponry that separates it from its threadbare equivalents. In book 6 in the Vampires In America series, the fanged hero, Lucas, delivers bloodshed and retribution to maintain his lordship, at the same time wielding the force of his irresistible charm to woo FBI Agent, Kathryn. While Lucas' amiability made him easy to love, it was Kathryn's skill with high-powered rifles and her inner I-am-woman zeal that kept me turning pages. DB never disappoints in her inventions of strong female leads. Same could be said about her skill at writing sexy scenes. Amidst the gun fights and fisticuffs (or fangicuffs as it were), there was a romantic softening, a reluctant love story. One that kept me pining for this couple till the very end.
