Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a great read that I just had to finish in one sitting, sleeping be damned." - C. Underwood (Amazon)

"I daresay some of the actual NY Times best-selling romance novels couldn't hold a candle to La Luxure."- Lenore (Goodreads)

"Paranormal romance and vampire romance genre fans should put this on their wish list." - bittenbyparanormalromance.com

From the Author

As a paranormal romance reader and lover, I wrote the Human Vampire series for readers like me who, from time to time, crave something a little different from high fantasy, but still want a little paranormal in their books. Take a break from the supernatural and get to know some real vampires.

This is the first in Hussey's Human Vampire series. The setting is New Orleans for a brutal murder, a Goth-like bar and vampire sub-culture in this steamy romance. Hussey's characters are so genuine and authentic it is almost like watching a live performance.

Julia, the female lead, is a witty 29 year old civil engineer and "token vagina" in the male dominated field attending a conference in New Orleans. She likes "her romance novels to be a little edgier, with leather clad, tattooed vampires that had drug problems, or were once sex slaves. The occasional werewolf was nice, or angst-y warlock, especially a tormented, sorcerer werewolf. She'd put away the historical novels years ago in favor of darker, rawer, urban fantasies." (Hmm, sounds like someone you know? {smile}.) Julia thinks she is a "boring, nerdy engineer" and Armand is a "super sexy vampire".

Armand, the male lead, is owner of La Luxure ("Lust" for those who don't know French), a Gothy vampire sub-culture bar, and one of the leaders in the Sang Community in New Orleans. He is inexplicably drawn to Julia the minute she comes in his bar. After he talks with her for a while, he actually finds himself falling for her.

This is a great story with a twist many won't see coming and a hot, hot, hot dream sequence, a shower scene which is well... steamy {grin} and the scene on the couch -- ooh, la la!

Paranormal romance and vampire romance genre fans should put this on their wish list.

Warning Spoiler Alert!!!
This does have a HEA ending. While this is a paranormal romance, it is not supernatural. Confused? That's ok, read it and you'll see what I mean.

I thought this was a vampire novel; I should have looked more closely before I bought it. It's about "human vampires" who are really just blood fetishists who like the vampire "life style". I like my vampires to be "real". You'd do better reading The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R. Ward; they're authentic vampire novels with wonderfully drawn characters, and are absolutely terrific. Amazon sells the entire series.

Wow... The book was awesome. I loved Armand from the beginning..When i first started reading it i was like ok... where is this book going to go, what direction is it going to take.. I felt for Julia.. And Claire seemed like an awesome sister and friend.. the more i read it the more i fell for the New Orleans scene.. I could picture the back drop of the story as if i was there with Julia.. When the story took the turn near the end i was blown away.. I was definitely thinking along the lines with Julia.. I don't want to give the ending away but wow that was so unexpected.. i am glad they were together at the end. I would recommend this book to my friends to read..

I love paranormal romance stories. This one didn't disappoint and even had an added surprise. I got drawn in until the blood letting. Thats when the bulb came on as to the secret about this vampire and opened my mind to the concept of this human subculture. Still, this is a well written story, the characters were endearing enough that I read it a second time. Well done. I am definitely reading the next one.

So I love reading spoilers in reviews because thats just how I roll. I like knowing what is going to happen, but back when I purchased this book I either didn't bother to read any or there weren't any. I'm so glad because Holy crap was I surprised. I thought I knew what was what and then the rug was pulled out from under me! So good! I got the whole darn series.

If you like vampire stories, or even if you don't, I think you will enjoy this book. It is a full-length book, with no need to buy another book to find out how it ends. There are, however, additional books in the series, which is fine with me because this author spins a great tale. The descriptions are not overly lengthy, which with some authors I find to be a problem. But the characters are well fleshed out, so that you know enough about them to care about them. I also enjoyed the fact that while the heroine had one pivotal moment of doubt and royally screws things up, she is very likable up to that point, not the constantly arguing and pouting heroine of many romance novels. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

What a boring stupid waste of time and money. How could Eve have died from blood loss if those fake vampires only took a tiny sip from each victim? She would have to be bitten thousands of times. What was up with that fortune teller? Why would he be upset about her turning evil when everything was just made up role playing?

This book was a super-sexy, paranormal-type book with a twist. It's a 'new' take on the vampire genre. I haven't read a lot of adult vampire books because I'm not really much of a romance reader. But this one was sexy, and it was refreshing to read a romance novel in which the male love interest is not a selfish, self-absorbed, condescending prick. The male lead in this book is actually fairly nice and decent, and even concerned with the environment. Aw[...]
The book is well written and without errors. I would recommend to readers of paranormal romance, vampire books, and romance novels in general. Sexy, but not skanky. A classy romance novel.
