Brant is a vampire in love with a shifter. Rabb's soul soothes him, but the call of his blood is stronger. In order to protect Rabb from the Council's wrath, Brant walked away from their relationship and the Vampire Council's rule five years ago. Ever since then he and has denied himself blood of any kind since. The hunger is excruciating but he considers Rabb's life to be worth the cost. Integrating himself into the human world, Brant is now the Mayor of Bright City and does his best to keep his town shifter free.
Rabb has never been one to follow rules, especially those he deems unnecessary. No shifter he knows would allow a vampire to feed on his blood without consent. As angry as the situation makes him feel, Rabb respects Brant's decision to walk away and has left him alone. Instead, he focuses on his duties as pack Alpha and works tirelessly to bring his pack out of the wilderness and into the modern era.
When murdered shifters being to turn up in Bright City, Brant and Rabb must unite both vampires and shifters, working together to find a killer that threatens them all. The close contact, after so many years apart, reignites the passion and love for each other that never died. Threats loom on all fronts and suspicion fills their ranks. Facing death has a tendency to cut through doubt and reveal that which is truly important, but the fact remains that their love is forbidden.
A well written, fast paced, and darkly entertaining tale, Bright City Lights is a delightful addition to the M/M romance genera. When steamy Alpha males, strong supporting characters, vampires, shifters and magic abound, who could ask for more?

Bright City Lights
Series: City of Lights 1
Author: Declan Sands
Page Count: 112 pages
Published by: Electronic Prose Publishing
Sometimes it's harder to be together than it is to be apart.
Rabb is an alpha shifter, a werewolf, who likes to defy both the odds and authority. He prefers the city lights over the open spaces most shifters enjoy.
Brant is a politician with a secret that's becoming harder and harder to contain. As mayor of Bright City, he's determined to keep the city free of shifters to protect his secret.
The two men share a fair amount of distrust, along with a smoldering history that threatens to drag them under again. But when shifters begin to die in Bright City, Rabb and Brant need to find a way to work together again. Especially when one of them inadvertently steps right into the murderer's deadly path.
HEAT RATING: 2 FLAMES
Rabb is an alpha wolf shifter who doesn't take orders well. He loves the bar he owns in the middle of Bright City and prefers the city to the open spaces most shifters like.
Brant, the mayor of Bright City, has some terrible secrets, like the fact that he used to be lovers with Rabb. Now, however, he wants all shifters out of his city. Too bad Rabb has no intentions of going anywhere, not even when Brant personally tells him it's time to go.
When someone starts killing shifters, the two will have to put aside their differences and work together to find the culprit. Along the way, Brant will have to fight his returning feelings for Rabb, along with his own inner demons. Leary of having his heart broken again, Rabb tries to resist Brant's pull, but the heart wants what it wants.
Can these two forget their past mistakes to find love again?
With two very strong personalities at work in this book, you would think the answer would be no. Thankfully, these two have such an animalistic attraction, there is no fighting the inevitable. The murder mystery was an added bonus to this story, a very well-written whodunnit? The wonderful story telling and heat between Brant and Rabb made this a book I just couldn't put down.
This is my first book I have read by Declan Sands, but I look forward to reading many more in the future. If they are anything like Bright City Lights, I know they will be stories to remember.

I'm always interested in a new vampire/shifter story. Add in a few murders and the hunt is on.
This is an easy read with not alot of mystery involved in solving the murders. Although the end leaves you with some questions in regards to who all is involved. I was looking forward to an interigation that I believe I'll have to read the next book in the series for.
Vampire characteristics in this story were different than any other vamp book I've read without any explanations.
(Out in the daylight, shifter blood causing bad effects) Rabb is an alpha shifter who's pack mates are being murdered.
Brant is the vampire mayor with a past with the alpha. They come together to solve the murders. Of course there are dislikes and distrust between the species. The two main characters do come together in the end with the promise of figuring out how they will deal with the blood issue.
I don't like to say too much in a review of what happens. But I will say I liked the writing style of this author and I enjoyed the story. There were many different paranormals in this story with really great personalities. I think this will be a fun series to read and I'm looking forward to it.
