In pursuit of her story, Jessie gets by Michael's security and stumbles onto the truth: Brandt is actually the latest in a family of generations of vigilante vampire hunters. Now that she knows, he can't just let her go, so Michael takes Jessie back to his Bruce Wayne-style headquarters/mansion and opens himself up to her.
They soon fall for each other -- the fair Eastern European and the dark Native American -- and this causes Michael pain because he doesn't want to lose Jessie the way he lost Charlotte years ago. He's lost one love to these creatures before. Will he lose another? He will if vampire overlord Jefferson Rendell has anything to say about it. Some people just never learn....
Author Livia Reasoner (also a writer of popular mysteries under the name Livia J. Washburn) offers readers all they expect and more in her Harlequin debut for the Silhouette Nocturne paranormal romance line. Traditional romance and vampire tropes get a good workout (as do Michael and Jessie in a steamy locker-room shower scene), but mostly The Vampire Affair is just a ripping yarn.
It's full of action and suspense, teeming with emotional conflict and sexual tension, and peopled with engaging characters in surprisingly plausible situations that make it easy to suspend the necessary amount of disbelief. Reasoner exhibits considerable talent in the equal effectiveness of both romance and battle scenes -- with an exciting scene of bloodlust well balanced with a steamy scene of the other kind.
It's a bit on the long side, and the ending will surprise no one, but the Native American connection offers an original twist. The Vampire Affair is more than worth your time. It's pure pulp, with few surprises but lots of entertainment. Its combination of romance, suspense, action, horror, and adventure are just the kind of escapist reading this reader seeks.
Instead Jessie demands Michael and his family of hunters train her in vampire combat. When a vampire enemy of his bites Jessie, Michael desperately tries to save her life; having lost one woman to this ancient scourge. However, taking a bite out of Jessie is not enough to destroy her as her Native American heritage enables her to stand by the man she loves hunting down the bloodsucking predators.
Although a modern day paranormal romance highlighted by what businessman playboy and hunter Michael carries an attaché case (filled with legal pad, gun, knife, wooden stake and holy water, etc), the super The Vampire Affair feels in some ways like a throwback novel. Livia Reasoner leaves no doubt about the good and evil conflict that places Michael in a difficult situation as the rule is one bite and you're dead. Sub-genre fans will fully appreciate this terrific taut thriller as the hero knows his duty but cannot for the first time in his career carry it out as Jessie has metaphysically taken a bite into his heart.
