Rating: 4 stars out of 5
In New Orleans, the killer still stalks, and confusion and passion heat up the reunion of human and vampire lovers.
In this sequel to Night Train to Naples, confusion, danger and passion heat up the reunion of Italian diamond courier Dante Rocco and his once business rival, then lover–the vampire Alexandros Nicolaides. Alex has never wavered in what Dante means to him, but Dante arrives in New Orleans suddenly unsure of his feelings and the impulsive promise he’d made to leave Italy and move to America. In the historic richness of the French Quarter, Dante must decide how he really feels about Alex even as the powerful ruler of the Louisiana vampires complicates their lives, and Giacomo, an unstable vampire, arrives with their murders on his mind.
This was a wonderful continuance of this series. Dante is now doubting his feelings and pledge to move to America to be with Alex after their time apart and all the confusion and people trying to undo their relationship is not helping. Alex takes things into his own hands to show Dante how important it is for them to be together.
Dante continues to be thrown in the deep end of the immortal world while interviewing for a new job with the courier that Alex works for. He begins to see that he can belong just as Alex begins to fear for his safety more than ever. Alex struggles with his desire to keep Dante close while also keeping him safe from anyone who means harm.
We once again get to see the story from both characters’ points of view and can see what each character is struggling with. Dante fights with himself over his feelings for Alex, but after Alex forces him to feel unbidden their relationship just blossoms. This was a nice ending to these characters’ story, I can’t wait to read the next book to see what is in store for Malcolm.
Cover art is very nice and follows the pattern for the series.
