I enjoy carnal pleasures like any mortal man, but six hundred years of existence have taught me loss. Best to stay away from people and save myself the heartache. Then I arrive at the notorious London brothel Maison Rouge, and my life, such as it is, will never be the same again.

Ivy Dearing, daughter of the infamous Madam, has requested my assistance. Two of her friends have been murdered, and she is determined to find their killer. I know better than to agree to help, yet Ivy is impossible to resist. No stranger to vampires, she has awakened desires within me that are as potent as my thirst for blood—desires that can only be satisfied by Ivy herself. But when there is another murder, it is all I can do to protect the woman I love from an evil more powerful than the undead . . .

    " I am seriously enjoying this historical paranormal romance series by Ms. Smith. Vamps are my favorite paranormal heroes, and the ones in this series are some great alpha males. Saint and Ivy are a great couple, fiery and passionate. The leads are by no means perfect, making them both more human. The story arc that began in the first book is continued here, and still continues to be interesting. Lots of fun. "

    " it is quite refreshing to read a book wherein the heroine doesnt believe in love and that the hero strongly believes in it. i like how the characters struggled to understand their feelings. ms kathryn is a great writer "

    " This book was about Saint this time. He goes to a safe house that is owned by Reign which also happens to be a Brothel. He rescued Maddie a long time ago and Reign set Maddie and her daughter Ivy up with this house. He has known Ivy all her life and watched her grow up. Now she is a woman and one that definately catches his eye. Unknown to Saint, when Ivy was 17 she had a huge crush on him. All these years later Ivy finds she still is enamored with Saint. They go through a lot of back and forth bickering and teasing between them during the story. Also included is the Order of the Silver Palm. They are committing murders and they happen to be either prostitutes of the Brothel or patrons who have been there. All in all the story was pretty good. I like this series so far. The writing is pretty good and the plot is also good. on a side note I did find it odd that Ivy was as sexually active and bold as she was considering the time period this was set in. That just seemed to me to be a bit out of place for a woman, despite the fact that she lives in a Brothel with her mother. At times she almost seems prudish - then next she is almost jumping Saint's bones. She doesn't service customers, she just lives there with her mother. I don't know why but that part kind of bothered me about the story. Her boldness and insistence concerning sex. I gave it 4 stars because the characters and plot were pretty good anyway. "

    " Wasn't as good as I expected. It was far too typical and standard for me. I've read better and I don't personally recommend it. It was lacking. 2.5/5 stars. "

    " OMG, It was sooo boring, that I had trouble to finish it. Wasn't a Chick-lit Romance-Fantasy like the two before. It was a bad written mystery novel with (typical unrealistic) sex scences. "

    " Very good book. Definitely a change from the last 2 books. This was more of a vampire romance murder mystery. Interesting how Kathryn Smith changes it up from book to book. "
