Book Description

Washington, D.C. … capital of an empire. Powerful. Exhilarating. Corrupt. And in the shadows … vampires far older than the nation itself.

A power unto himself, Duncan has served at Raphael’s side for a hundred and fifty years. But long laid plans have finally borne fruit, and the time has come for Duncan to leave Raphael and tackle the greatest challenge of his life. He will face treacherous vampires and murderous humans. He will rock the halls of human power if necessary. But Washington, D.C. will be his.

Emma Duquet cares nothing for vampire politics. She just wants to find her missing roommate and best friend, Lacey. But Lacey’s been playing with vampires of a particularly dangerous kind, and Emma will have to deal with the new vampire in town if she’s going to find her friend.

Battling powerful enemies who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets, Duncan and Emma will dig beneath the corruption and depravity that is Washington, D.C. and uncover the most heinous conspiracy of all…

5.0 out of 5 stars DUNCAN, DELIGHTFULLY ENCHANTING November 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For those that have read the whole series, start the book with tissues handy. The first few exchanged words between Cyn and Duncan will bring tears to your eyes. When I first started the book, I hated the fact that Duncan was leaving Raphael. I secretly wished all the vampires could work together so each new book would build on the other characters and make us love them even more.

When Duncan lands in Washington, he immediately challenges the Vampire lord for his territory. What he did not know was the depths of Victor's corruption and evil doings. It becomes evident that the more Duncan looks into Victor's background, the more he becomes enraged. How could nobody realize what Victor did this whole time, how did he get away with it all? Now that Duncan is in charge, he has vowed that those involved will pay for their crimes.

Emma happens to be the best friend of Lacey, one of Victor's playthings that he toyed with. When she realizes what happened to her, she wants revenge ... and who wouldn't. But, does she want help from another vampire? Afterall, vampires were the ones that hurt Lacey. However, when Emma lays eyes on Duncan, she can't help but be attracted to his looks and southern charm. The journey takes you from the need for revenge and leads one to love and happiness.

You will definitely want to add this book to your library. If you haven't read any of D.B. Reynolds books, start. Vampires in America is a great series, one that is very addicting. This can be read as a stand-alone novel, but I suggest starting with the 1st in the series, Raphael. All her books are enjoyable and well worth buying ---- 5 STARS!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Duncan's foley December 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although writing this review may be a disservice to D.B. Reynolds, I believe that she would rather receive her fan's input than just a regular star rating. The Vampires in America series is really great, and I was looking forward to reading Duncan's story, but I was disappointed with the dialog and relationship between Emma and Duncan. To me, Emma was shallow and self-absorbed, and this chemistry between her and Duncan was more like a one-night stand rather than a strong building relationship. How Duncan could possibly be enraptured with Emma is beyond me. I understand that Emma's character was suppose to be head strong, independent and determined, but I couldn't get past my dislike of her personality, nor could I build up any emotion toward the chemistry between our dear Duncan and Emma. Yes, Duncan should have had a better relationship, a better storyline; perhaps DB could "off" Emma in a tragic accident and rewrite Duncan finding of true love again. *Sorry*

3.0 out of 5 stars Was somewhat entertaining. March 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It took me a long time to read this book. I had expected to breeze through it because I've been waiting for Duncan's book for a long time. But what let me down was the character of Emma. I just found her to be so cliche. Another reviewer mentioned that they wished Duncan had a better love interest and I agree. Other than her being a southern gal, I didn't really see why she was so different from any other female I'm sure he's met over his nearly 200 years.

Emma was stubborn to the point of stupidity and contrary for the sake of being contrary. At work, she was humble, but with Duncan, all of a sudden she didn't like being told what to do, even if it was in her best interest. I found her very annoying. Duncan is used to people making smart decisions and he respects them, like Raphael. I don't see why he fell in love so quickly with someone like Emma.

I don't know, maybe I'm just getting burned out of PNR, but this book just fell kind of flat to me. The most interesting parts are the ones when Duncan was around his own vampires. That kept me entertained. And the other reviewer who said the ending was uneventful, it's true. The sex scenes were longer than the showdown. And that might be great for some ppl. But I love substance. I love for the action to last longer than two or three paragraphs.

Another thing, and I've noticed this in just about all of DB. Reynolds books. It reminded me a lot of D.N. Simmons, especially Rajmund where the female character is psychic and sees visions in her dreams. It's not a big deal, it's probably why I've enjoyed reading the VIA series. Just something I noticed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ditto! Poor Duncan December 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this series & was really looking forward to Duncan's story. I finished it in a day last week but waited before writing my review to see if i think about this book or wanting to re-read part of it again. That didn't happen. I agree with one reviewer stating Duncan deserves a much better story especially because I like his character so much from past books. Emma's character is forgettable & I couldn't make a connection with the attraction between the two..sorry, the fact she's a southern girl just didn't cut it for me. And talking to herself was extremely annoying. Overall I do enjoy the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmm....yummy! November 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having anticipated reading Duncan's story for several months, I eagarly plopped down in my recliner and began a new adventure. Before I knew it my imagination took over and I was Emma and Duncan was all mine.

Oh yeah Duncan is everything I hoped he would be, a true Southern gentleman with an alpa male vampiric nature. The combination proves he's powerful enough to destroy a corrupt Vampire lord, yet isn't afraid to be gentle and kind to women --especially the one he boldly claims as his own.

Just don't don't accuse him of acting like a girl. He'll prove you wrong and you'll be very happy he did. You'll have to read the book to figure that one out. :-)

Thank you, D.B. Reynolds for another enjoyable saga in the Vampires of America series. Please write more about Duncan and Emma...soon.
