From the opening chapter Holly provides enough suspense and mystery to keep readers enthralled, and she turns up the heat with her sensual sex scenes. The second book of the Fitz Clare Chronicles can be read on its own, but readers will enjoy it even more if they start with Kissing Midnight. Secondary characters and subplots add to the intrigue of this seductive tale.
Edmund Fitz Clare, an elder upyr, wakes in a dungeon, shackled
and helpless in 1933 London. He's been kidnapped by a rival faction of his own kind, immortal shapeshifters who intend to use him as a pawn to control the world. His mortal lover, Estelle, sees him in dreams, but her visions put her and his family in increasing danger as she gets closer to finding him. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jul., 320 pp., $7.99)
