THE BADLANDS of SOUTH DAKOTA . . . haunting landscapes, legendary outlaws, and . . . vampires?
LUCAS DONLON, Vampire Lord, is one of the most powerful vampires in North America and beyond. Charming and irreverent to his friends and lovers, he enjoys everything about his life as a vampire. But when a neighboring lord makes the mistake of declaring war, he quickly discovers that Lucas is every bit as lethal as he is charming.
KATHRYN HUNTER doesn't care about powerful vampires or their wars. Her baby brother is missing and she will do anything to find him, even if it means going against both her FBI bosses and the local vampire lord. But Lucas Donlon has other plans for the lovely FBI agent who's landed on his doorstep.
Waging war against their enemies and each other, Lucas and Kathryn will risk everything to keep the most deadly vampire war in hundreds of years from engulfing every vampire, and human, in North America.

Lucas, is a vampire Lord, and a very jovial one at that. But he has his own problems to deal with. Lucas is getting ready to take down the vampire Lord, whose territory is right next to his. Especially after he tries to kill his closest friend, Raphael. Now there is a FBI Agent, asking questions, but a searing heat explodes between them. At first Lucas doesn’t want to accept what is happening between himself and Kathryn. However with the danger rising rapidly, Kathryn is determined to keep herself in the midst of danger, and it will be up to Lucas to save her life, and to show her the true power of the vampire world, and even though she keeps resisting her feelings for him, that no vampire lets his mate go without a fight.
Lucas is the sixth book in the Vampires of America series, and I am almost done with reading the whole series, except for one novella. It makes me sad in a way, reading this series so far has been such a blast of whirlwind fun, danger and desire, and I have loved every single moment. This is definitely a favorite author of mine. I read a novella Betrayed, where we first see Lucas and I liked from the start. He is energetic, a ladies man, and has a more relaxed and humorous personality than the other vampire lords that we have met so far. Although in this story we see a whole lot more to him and he definitely is powerful and lets no one stand in his way. Kathryn was a solid character and I did enjoy quite a bit, although she was always never giving into emotion, and it got quite frustrating many a times. I understand that with being a FBI agent, she has to have a tough exterior, but she was constantly refusing to give in even in private, and there was something about her that rankled against me. However I did like her toughness, and ingenuity and her determination to not let Lucas stand in her way of finding her brother.
I felt like the story was very exciting and thrilling, and was packed full with plenty of drama and action to keep your mind occupied all the way through. There was a balanced consistency that I have enjoyed from this author. There is quite a bit of tension between Lucas and Kathryn that was quite a show to see, and boy did they give a entertaining show!! I enjoyed seeing these two together, and I loved how they are both fighters and doesn’t give in easily. You see how their relationship deepens as the story goes along, and you can’t help but admire these two.
A riveting romance to set you on edge and fill you with excitement, thrills and passion!! A REWARDING STORY TO CHARM YOU!!
