Montreal, Quebec . . . A charming city on the St. Lawrence River, historic, sophisticated, but beneath it all lies an extensive underground where treacherous vampires are plotting to seize the country.
Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire—handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill—who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada’s ruling vampire lord, and it’s up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.
Eleanor Morel lost everything—including the love of her life—when she became a vampire. But now, twenty years later, she’s a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn’t know is that the special hunter she’ll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he’s demanding answers.
Lucifer’s love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they’ll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they’re going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow . . .
In the territory of Canada, Sophia is the ruler but the worst has happened, her human mate Colin has been kidnapped and tortured and kept alive through vampire blond. So she calls in some help, so she can focus on keeping order and find the traitors. Lucifer, may be younger than most vampires but under the aid of Aden and Bastien has been building on his power and strengths. He has come to help since his expertise is seeing those “clues” and his partner is Sophia’s most trusted friend and bodyguard Eleanor. Lucifer and Eleanor are thrown a curveball, because they were once lovers but Eleanor and Lucifer were torn apart by an enemy and now they will have to work together to find Colin as fast as possible. Eleanor was forcefully turned into a vampire by Lucifer’s enemy, and she was too confused and ashamed to go to him. She has spent the years since learning to fight and being capable and strong. They are on the clock to find Colin, and the traitors behind the kidnapping and betrayal of Sophia and Canada is no small territory to cover. Being around each other, Lucifer and Eleanor will also have to face the past if they want to have a future together….
Plot and Story Line
Lucifer was another fantastic addition to this series and I LOVED it!! It definitely has some fun old characters we get to get back in touch with like Aden, Bastien, Sophia and Colin and even some snippets of Raphael and Cyn. Those who have fallen in love with this series will have a blast with these characters. Now it starts off with a not so happy start. One of my favorite couples….are in the fight of their lives. Colin and Sophia. Now Sophia is the vampire lord over Canada which she just recently took over and not everyone in her territory are happy about it. She is being sent tapes of Colin’s torture and even though she knows he is alive she has no idea where he is being held and is forced to ask for help. Because she has no idea who she can trust. And there is quite a bit of tension between Lucifer and Eleanor. Now we do get a few flashbacks to see their relationship before and see what drove them apart. Now Lucifer is one solid hero….he was so understanding and patient. In fact, there was nothing wrong I could see with him at all. He was so steady and reliable but dangerous when there is an enemy and boy is he powerful. But what I really liked the best about him is he didn’t use that power for power alone. He used it to help others or defeat a evil. All that mattered to him was Eleanor, and I loved seeing how devoted he was to her despite the past. Eleanor has learned some painful lessons, and even though she made some decisions that were the best….they were understandable. I felt compassion for both of these characters and the horrible circumstances that a enemy put them in. Which is why I loved seeing this love story get a second chance for a happy ending. And who doesn’t love a good mystery? Because Reynolds really outdid herself in this one.
He cupped her face with his free hand, and kissed her. Soft and gentle, and full of love. A romantic kiss that spoke of devotion and promises that lasted forever. “I love you, Eleanor. Forever and ever, bella. Forever and Ever.”
Quite a thrill to see the adventure, suspense and a good mystery in the midst of a paranormal romance you can cheer for!! Another Winning romance for D.B. Reynolds!!! And it looks like the series is just beginning for a war and some battles in Europe BRING IT ON!!!
LOVE this cover so much!!! Love the feel of danger and power in this one. The male model fits just right for Lucifer as he is described in the book.
Lucifer is a vampire romance that is packed with action, danger and a solid mystery that will keep the reader guessing!! SIMPLY EXHILARATING!
