Montreal, Quebec . . . A charming city on the St. Lawrence River, historic, sophisticated, but beneath it all lies an extensive underground where treacherous vampires are plotting to seize the country.
Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire—handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill—who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada’s ruling vampire lord, and it’s up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.
Eleanor Morel lost everything—including the love of her life—when she became a vampire. But now, twenty years later, she’s a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn’t know is that the special hunter she’ll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he’s demanding answers.
Lucifer’s love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they’ll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they’re going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow . . .

Lucifer is the 11th book of the Vampires in America. I didn’t know this series, but I think I will do some catching up. The cover of D.B. Reynolds book certainly got my attention. And without reading the first 10 books, this book was perfectly readable. Of course, you miss some of the history of Sophia, the Vampire lord and some basics on how those lords operate. But you catch up pretty quick, and let’s face it: Lucifer is just too hot to care about all those vampire politics.
The story starts with Colin, Sophia’s mate, who is being tortured. Well, you certainly have all the attention there D.B.. Then the story continues with Sophia, Eleanor and lord Aden. Lord Aden proposes that one of his vampires (Lucifer) will help Sophia tracking her mate down. Since there are a lot of traitors, it is difficult for Sophia to accept help. To be sure, she isn’t being deceived, she appoints her most trusted vampire (Eleanor) to go with Lucifer. What she doesn’t know is that Eleanor and Lucifer share a history. An unfinished history…
So when Lucifer and Eleanor meet, tension goes through the roof and sparks are flying. But are those sparks enough to overcome history???
Find out during the journey of Eleanor and Lucifer to track down Colin and his abductors. Who is the traitor among Sophia’s clan? And will Eleanor and Lucifer be in time to save Colin?
This book will keep you on edge. Makes you wonder what will come next and who will be the traitor. And of course the mutual attraction between Lucifer and Eleanor. Will they fold to the attraction, or has too much happened for them to make amends? Thank you ImaJinn Books and Netgalley for this ARC. Four out of five stars for me. And I’ll definitely start on the rest of the series!
