You'd think that the frozen wilds of Alaska would be the last place you'd find a red-hot, redheaded vampire named Vivian, but that's where C.J. Ellison has set this intriguing series of Vampire novels,
Vivian is over 500 years old, but she's still sexy enough to make the guests who come to the Alaskan hideaway extremely hot and bothered. Along with her human mate, Rafe, she's created the V V Inn, a perfect vampire retreat where wealthy vamps and werewolves can play and satisfy their most exotic cravings in romantic luxury. But when the body of the human companions of one of her guests turns up dead and drained, Vivian becomes what she still is deep inside, a very dangerous enemy. Along with staff, guests, and her considerable talents they search for the culprit, a psychopathic vampire with a grudge.
Ms, Ellison draws her vivid characters with a deft hand, showing us layers of emotion as the plot and the murder mystery unravel. The moments of drama and erotic intensity are entwined with a sharp edge of humor that keeps the plot moving and balanced. Vivian, a mystery in herself is revealed to us along the way, much more than the sexy, outgoing persona she assumes for her guests. She is a complex and fascinating character, and a woman who knows what she wants and will go through heaven or hell to get it.
This book is definitely an adult only novel, steamy and sensual, most often within the committed bond between Vivian and her mate. The other characters are clearly portrayed, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Each adds to the story as a whole and the hot looking males in the vicinity are enough to satisfy any lady reader of paranormal amour.
