A 496-year-old vampire goes to 1950s Hollywood in this spicy paranormal tale. Handsome bloodsucker Christian Durand (familiar from November 2010's Devil at Midnight) is reunited with his long-lost lover, Grace Michaels, by his maker, the evil vampire queen Nim "Naomi" Wei. Naomi is now an ambitious director of B-movies and determined to make her vampire subordinate a star. Grace remembers nothing of her magical erotic encounters with Christian centuries before, and as other figures from his past are mysteriously drawn to the film studio, Christian struggles with his memories as well as his difficulties as a novice actor. The marathon sexual encounters between Grace and Christian are sizzlingly hot, but the story suffers from its dependence on the previous book, and the connections with the events and characters of Christian's past are never fully integrated or resolved.

Grace Gladwell isn’t the first pretty girl to make her way to 1950s Hollywood, but her dreams are to be a star behind the camera, and she knows her vampire script is her big ticket. But unbeknownst to Grace, her leading man is a real vampire. Christian Durand wants nothing to do with her and her script because Grace is the reincarnation of his lost love, the woman who betrayed him 500 years ago. She shows no sign of remembering, except for clues in the tragic script. Can Christian rewrite history and give them a happy ending? The tale reads more like a nostalgic contemporary romance with vampires than a genuine urban fantasy, but fans shouldn’t fear that this dampened any of Holly’s erotic heat. Those who like less blunt talk in their sex scenes, however, may want to stick to her historical romances. Part of her Upyr series, this is the sequel to the first part of Christian’s story, Devil at Midnight (2010). --Nina C. Davis
