Although I've enjoyed this series, this book was slow and the hero is a bit of a cream puff.

Dark Dynasties Series:
Immortal Craving (to be released January 29, 2013)
Shadow Rising started great, keeping me excited about finding time to read whenever possible. Sadly, it slowed to the point that I started reading it only when I was having trouble falling asleep at night. Too much time was spent on characters sitting and talking, or sitting and thinking....sitting and not really doing anything. I kept reading to the end because I have hope that the next book will bring back the action.
I also hope for a more masculine hero. Damien was far too concerned about his hair and attire. When the lead couple travels, his suitcase is huge, dwarfing the size of the heroine's duffel. When they arrive at their destination, a friend of Damien's has to carry in all the bags because Damien is busy pulling his giant rolling suitcase full of designer slacks, pressed jeans, sports coats, and the necessities for making his hair perfect... And whatever you do, don't get any blood on his favorite shirt. Good thing the heroine was around to kill and chase off any bad guys.
