great job of explaining the Mexican holiday, as well as tells a fantastic story
with action paced adventures, sexy vampires, great food and fabulously erotic
love scenes, it is well worth the read.

Ellora's Cave. It tells the story of a vampire hunter and a vampire who find
love while they hunt for rouge vampires.
Melanie (Minx) Rodriguez and Connor Bell are familiar characters in the
previous books in the series and while it wouldn't hurt to read the rest of the
books to get to know the supporting cast, it isn't necessary if you are just looking
for a good read with the holiday theme.

This is the
fourth book in the Chase Brothers' series and I was sorry to see the boys go.
This was my favorite book of all. Matt and Tate are a great couple together.
Tate is a strong compassionate woman who really needs a knight in shinning
armor and that is just the man she brings out in Matt. The love scenes are not
only passionate, but real. You can feel everything that Tate is going through
and feel for her. If there ever was a hero it was Matt, even if you take away
the fact that he's a fireman. This guy shows that he's more than just a pretty

little different from the previous books to the series as it doesn't have a
suspense driven plot. The book deals with the relationship between the two lead
characters and the growing feelings between the them. Liv needs a man she can't
walk all over and Marc fits the bill to a "T". This is love story

perfectly honest I didn't like this book all that well. It wasn't the story
itself, but Shane Chase that did me in. Personally I thought that Cassie was
too good for him. He wasn't a likable character to me in the first book, and I
didn't like him much in the second. That being said, I like series books, so
this book was a necessary read to go on with the rest of the books. It wasn't
bad in the fact that the secondary characters were all great. I love Shane's
mother, with her big hair and all. She makes up for some of the loss with

He was sensitive, sweet, in love with Maggie from the start and even stepped
