A brutal murderer…

Gives new meaning to the expression “Thrilling Nightlife.”
Burke Langton is on the run. Wrongfully accused of murder, he’s just one step ahead of the Excoluni — the law enforcement arm of the United Magical Nations — trying to track down the real killer. When the murderer strikes again, this time at Club Carpe Nocturne, Burke learns the owner, Sylvie Durand, is not only his Origo — his mate — and she may be the murderer’s next victim.

Miko Dvorak, a high-ranking officer of the Excoluni, is assigned to bring Burke to justice. But that’s no easy task, for the two share an Origo. Should he be caught protecting Burke from the Excoluni, his career will be over. Sylvie’s determined to convince him to take that risk.

Together the three must conquer a madman who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, clear Burke’s name, and shatter the chains that bind them to their own private demons before they can achieve the blood-bond they must have to survive.

This collection contains the previously released novellas:
Carpe Nocturne 1: Dressed To Kill,
Carpe Nocturne 2: Kiss Me; Kill Me,
Carpe Nocturne 3: If Looks Could Kill.

The premise of this story is great! The heroine, Sylvie Durand is the owner of the nightclub, Carpe Nocturne, and finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery with two alpha male vampires who are claiming her as their Origo, their mate.

The first man has been wrongly accused of murder and is trying to save himself by tracking down the real killer, the second man is an officer of the Excouluni, and is assigned to bring the first man in. He also finds himself the bonded mate of Sylvie Durand.

The book contains very vivid sexual situations guaranteed to set your hormones to dancing. There is plenty of conflict–while Sylvie loves and accepts both men, her mates are sworn adversaries. There is also the problem that if the three complete their final bond, then they are bound in life, and death. So if one is prosecuted for the murder he did not commit, they will all die.

This book is a fun and exciting story and is defiantly a recommended read for those who enjoy both Vampires and Ménage in along with a very good suspense story.
