The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance
Various

The Darkest Kiss by Keri ArthurThe Darkest Kiss sees us returned to the world of Guardian Riley Jensen, a supernatural enforcer taking on all those otherworldly baddies that the mortal authorities fear, and to the thrilling writing style of author Keri Arthur. This is a series I honestly enjoy and one that has gotten better with each volume.

In this latest outing, our dear Riley is still struggling with the physiological changes wrought upon her from the experimental serum a former lover had been injecting with her. She is, of all things, learning to fly, but her flying lessons take a back seat when a new mystery lands in her lap. She goes after it with determination and focus while her love life remains in cold storage … that is until an old flame appears on her radar again.

Ah, yes, Quinn, that dark and delicious ancient vampire is back, dear readers, making Riley’s head spin and her hormones do a happy dance. They really are good together, as bed partners and otherwise, and I’m hoping we’ll see even more of them in the future. I really am pulling for a happy ending for them.

Overall, The Darkest Kiss is a solid, well-written book. There’s plenty of mystery and action, but the between-the-sheets time is less than the previous books, though that really doesn’t hurt anything because this series has truly developed into full-on urban fantasy with a strong element of eroticism and some engaging paranormal sleuthing.

Have you read The Darkest Kiss? If so, please feel free to leave a post and share your opinion.
