This one really didn't do it for me. Sydney just felt like a needy slut who disregarded even the most basic tenets of self-preservation, but still miraculously never seemed to get hurt. The dialogue was unnatural. Here is an example: “Now, now, little whore. You will not get away from me so easily. Consider yourself lucky that I cannot take your body for my own carnal pleasures before giving you to my Mistress. So greedy she is...she wants you all to herself.” Ugh, really? Sydney's dedication to the children at the children's centre came out of nowhere and felt very much like a forced effort to give her character some depth. It is a stunning example of insta-love. For Kade it starts before they even actually meet. Apparently a giant diamond engagement ring says I'll love you for eternity better than a sacred blood bond. Who knew? The foray into the bondage scene just felt like pointless titillation and the sex scenes lacked sizzle.

There was a good mystery involved, but the whole thing wrapped up far too easily...and apparently no one needs a warrant to go kicking in doors in Philadelphia or New Orleans anymore...oh and why did it start in Philly again? There were also a number of editorial mistakes. So yea, not for me.

There were a few really funny lines though. Example: "Yep, no matter how supernatural you were, testicles were always vulnerable. Tried and true, Sydney loved how that worked." Yep, funny. Setting the book in two such historic cities allowed for some good environmental atmosphere and I appreciated that. Plus, all of the alpha males seemed to be loyal, honourable, and looking for their forever mate. That's sexy in and of itself. I think there's probably a lot of potential here, but it didn't feel realised...at least not in my opinion. Of course, that's all any of this is.

What a delightful read.
This is a great book that contains a little bit of everything that a reader could ever want. It has mystery, murder, mayhem, sexy vampires, loyal werewolves, and sex.
I really enjoyed the romantic fantasy. It was a real page turner. I must admit, my family had to do without while I couldn't put the book down! Simply loved it.

I first found this book for free on amazon. After reading it I was glad I found it! The characters are strong personalities, not just the alpha male, the heroine is an alpha female, not something seen often enough in romance, paranormal or otherwise. Ms. Grosso creates a rich, vibrant history and background with her characters, major and minor. And she follows up with the series using the minor characters she introduces in this book. This is a series I am thoroughly enjoying. If you have not read this series yet, I strongly advice you to do so, starting with Kade's Dark Embrace.

Four and a Half Stars

Like a fox spotting a rabbit in the woods, he could not resist the temptation of the hunt.

His cell phone when off again and he knew he must return to the task at hand, he memorized her face and hoped he would see her again.

Kade Issacson is a powerful and oh so sexy vampire, he has come to Philadelphia at the request of the Tristan to help solve a series of ritualistic murder they believe are the result of a vampire. Kade is surprised when he turns up at the murder scene to find the women he had been admiring earlier standing over the latest victim.=

Sydney Willows is a kick ass cop who get the job done, she is fiercely independent and she lets nobody tell her what to do. When Sydney is called to a murder on her night off she is not only angered by the crime before her she is forced to deal with an overbearing so called detective in his high priced suit trying to dictate orders to her relating to the case.

Kade and Sydney are instantly attracted to each other but there are two big problems Sydney takes orders from no one and Kade is not use to anyone disobeying him. Kade and Sydney must find a way to trust each other if they are to stop the vampire responsible for these crimes. Can Sydney learn to let Kade in or will their attraction for each other make Sydney more determined to pull away.

Kade's Dark Embrace is Book 1 in Immortals of New Orleans by Kym Grosso and is a fantastic start to a series if you like Vampire, Shifters and Witches wrapped in an amazing storyline then this series is definitely for you
