Once again Hill writes a sexually hot fantasy with a wonderful plot and fascinating characters. This addition to her Ancient Blood series has many familiar faces and gives stories to characters mentioned previously. The action is nonstop, and the finale is gratifying.

On Jan. 3, the conditions will be right for spirits trapped in the Underbelly to take mortal form again. One of those spirits is the most evil vampire who ever existed. Cody Dilorenzo, Sy Wooden and Luke Keane are called upon to stop this from happening.

To do so, they must protect three mortal women while keeping them ignorant of the existence of vampires. Working undercover as a chauffeur, martial arts student and stripper, each is matched with the woman he should be the least attracted to. However, even the best-laid plans can go awry. (, dl $6.49)
