FBI agent Diana Reyes’ latest case places her undercover at a hot New York club, the Lair, hoping to attract the attention of a serial killer and stop him before another woman becomes his victim. What she doesn’t expect are the attentions of the club’s owner, Ryder Latimer, or to find his southern charm so appealing. Ryder also feels drawn to Diana, but the phrase “not her type” never held more meaning: he is a vampire and has no place in her world. But as pressure mounts in the investigation, heat rises between Diana and Ryder, until neither can resist their forbidden passion. Pineiro crafts strong sexual tension and a fascinating portrait of both Diana’s and Ryder’s internal struggle with their respective dark natures. Die-hard paranormal fans may miss the lack of a larger supernatural world, but readers who like just a touch of the unusual will find this romantic suspense a satisfying read. (from Amazon.com)

“She’d once been a victim of cruelty to men. Now she was a vampire.
As lives went, both of hers had sucked. At least when it came to the opposite sex. So New York City vampire Samantha Turner vowed to spend her immortal life protecting the helpless and shielding herself from the violence of men’s passions. Then she met NYPD detective Peter Daly.
His lust for life, for justice – for her – was a temptation she couldn’t deny. It was enough to lure her out of the darkness and into his embrace, for a little while, enough to make her trust him when an old evil reemerged. But would it be enough when she at last revealed her true nature?” (Summary from series website)

“Darkness Calls to humans as well as vampires. . .
When FBI Agent Diana Reyes fell in love with Ryder Latimer, she knew that there were things she would give up. For the passion her vampire lover brought into her life, it seemed a fair trade.

Ryder understands her fears . . . and has fears of his own: losing her, of the void that would fill him without her. But when a case draws Diana into a purely human darkness, Ryder must make a decision: Can he let her go? Or will he step between her and death, no matter if she hates him afterward” (Summary from series website)

“Sara’s mom is terminally ill and wanting to try all avenues to make her better, Sara takes her to Ricardo, whom she believes to be a santero.

This creates tension between them since Sara has always doubted his assertions as to what he is and what he can do.
Add to this mix a different creature — a chupacabra — or goat sucker. The chupacabra is similar to a vampire, sucking the blood of animals in order to survive. I’ve given the chupacabra mythology a twist, though, which soon has the creature going after Ricardo.” (Summary from series website)
