Houston, Texas--Cowboy boots, baseball and journeys to the stars . . . right?
Wrong. Because Houston is also home to Jabril Karim, one of the eight powerful Vampire Lords who control all of North America. And as Private Investigator Cynthia Leighton will soon discover, not all Vampire Lords are created equal.
Jabril is the face of evil in the new world, a vampire who values no life but his own, who enslaves those he desires, steals whatever he covets, and destroys anyone who stands in his way.
Running from L.A. and its seductive Vampire Lord, Raphael, Cyn sees the Houston job as a welcome refuge, a place to get away and heal her broken heart. But Texas will be no vacation. Cyn will confront a true enemy in Jabril, one who will go to any lengths to satisfy his lusts, enrich his coffers, and expand his power.
Fighting for the lives of two young sisters, Cyn's journey will take her through the streets of Houston and back to L.A., where the human police are determined to bring Raphael down for the murder of one of their own. But the danger doesn't end there.
Jabril has set his sights on Cyn, and he will stop at nothing to have her.
Jabril is the second installment in the Vampires in America series. I have recently become a new fan of this author. This story is a continuation of the first book, “Raphael”, but there is more focus on Cyn than Raphael. From the beginning here, Raphael and Cyn haven’t seen each other in weeks. Cyn goes to Texas on assignment for a vampire “Jabril”, little does she know how cruel he is or how warped his fascination with her would be. I enjoyed seeing more character from Cyn and seeing her capabilities. We see a side of her more in depth than we did in “Raphael”. We see how resourceful she is, and the courage she has against the worst odds. Jabril is a insane and psychotic vampire leader, and this book has a lot of focus on his obsession with Cyn and the two sisters she is trying to save from him. There is quite a level of suspense in this story, and the reunion of Raphael and Cyn is priceless. I enjoyed seeing their relationship progress further especially after the ending of the first one. Jabril is a fascinating and intense tale of sacrifice and love. Definitely can’t wait to read more of this series. Thanks to ImaJinn books and Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read this wonderful vampire romance that swept me away instantly!! A GEM OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE!!
