What are vampires? According to Drake's fun, fanciful read, they're just another group of emotionally challenged creatures in need of a good 12-step program. In the third volume of her vampire series, Drake (Seize the Dawn) introduces Ragnor Wulfson, a 1,000-year-old vampire, formerly a Viking, who is now an antiques dealer and a vampire enforcer. When Ragnor learns that his former lover Nari, the Contessa della Trieste and a naughty vampire, is throwing a masquerade ball during Venice's Carnevale festival, he travels to the city to find out what fiendish diversions she's planned. At the party, Nari and her minions feast upon the guests, but only Jordan Riley, a well-known book critic from the States, witnesses the carnage. Despite Nari's assurances that the macabre scene was part of the evening's dramatics, Jordan is convinced that what she saw was real, but the only person who believes her is Ragnor, a mysterious hulk of a man who believes she's in danger. While the two hunt down the ancient evil that appears to be stalking Jordan, they explore their mutual passion for each other. Drake's descriptions of Venice are lush, and her colorful cast of characters will engage. Those who can overlook the novel's far-fetched plot and sensational finish will be heartily entertained by this outrageous comic book romp. (Sept.)Forecast: Print advertising in USA Today and Fangoria will entice fans of TV's favorite Vampire Slayer to check out the newest installment in Drake's series.

Please suggest that her ebooks be updated.
I kept thinking I wanted a little more detail, a little more explanation throughout the story. Not just about the characters but about exactly HOW the vampires became vampires and took different shapes. Graham did keep me interested with the gradual tale of Ragnor and Nari. The switch back to the past off and on throughout the book did the trick to keep me paying attention.
I almost gave the book 3 stars because it didn't answer so many questions for me. Still, I'm on Amazon right now to see if I can find the book right before or after this one - so I'm evidently interested enough to read more (grin). AND if I'm seeking out another, surely it deserves 4 stars.
Just a note: It's not a 'cerebral' experience at all, but it is great for 'brain candy' which is why many of us read fiction to begin with, right?
True or a macabre farce ... the Contessa's masquerade turns into a bloody killing spree with guests turning into beasts
Jordan Riley would be another victim if she wasn't taken away by her tall and sexy dance partner in a wolf costume. No one believes her when she tries to report the murders. All consider her "the naive American tourist" and think her crazy.
Ragnor saves Jordan from the bloody feast but can he save her from herself and becoming one of the contessa's blood puppets. All he can do is follow her and protect her....
There was romance plus action and you can loose yourself in the story.
I would recommend to people who like romance and suspense leaning toward the supernatural.
