CODY (4.5) by Kimberly Raye: Raye's Texas Vampires series continues with Cody, who was turned after the Civil War. He and his brothers arrived home to find their home burning and their family dead. Now Cody sees the face of the man responsible in a newspaper. It's the man who runs Skull Creek Choppers. Determined to kill him, Cody is derailed by Miranda, who's looking for some sexual excitement before she marries. When he's with her, everything changes for Cody -- who usually feeds off the sexual release of the women he's with, but doesn't experience it himself. Highly sensual, well-developed and sympathetic characters, plus vampire cowboys, make this a first-rate read.
