4.5 Love This Series Stars

I just finished this book and guess what? Ok, so you won't have to think hard to guess how I felt about it...



Kathryn is an FBI agent and after her brother goes missing she decides to go to South Dakota where he last was and try to find him, alive or dead. What she never expected when she started her investigation was to fall face first in a war between two Vampire Lords, neither did she expect to fall in love with one.

My Kathryn...



All Kathryn ever wanted for herself in

*4.5 stars*

He gazed down at the sniveling vampire dispassionately, then stepped back and started breaking bones, beginning with the little ones, fingers and toes, the delicate bones in the hand. Heintz groaned softly as first, but by the time Lucas had started on the big bones- the tibia and fibula in the calf, the thick femur in the thigh- the vampire was grunting like a rutting pig, the only sounds of pain he was able to make. Bloody tears streamed down his face as he groveled on the ground,

5 Stars!! Bad-ass of the Badlands! I'm lusting for Lucas!

Lucas is such a conceited bastard, but yet I loved every inch of this sweet ,sexy, scrumptious, playful, arrogant, yummy Irish vampire! Kathryn is a strong female heroine, and the perfect counterpart for Lucas! Lots of delicious gore, intense passion, and some amusing moments... the perfect paranormal package. Another terrific installment in this outstanding vampire series! Oh, and a delectable second to hunger after...Nicholas! More pleas

Holy freaking shit!!!
Book 6 was it for me!
Actually Lucas was, to be perfectly honest...




Elusive, dark, dangerous, merciless, sexy killer vamp Lord with a fucking awesome sense of humor...


That got me good!!!


he's a predator with a sensitive side...who protects and cherishes what is his...and he certainly knows a lot about seduction...



just kill me now!
Seduction was the slow, exquisite game of persuading a beautiful woman to come into his arms. To dance with him, to share long and langurous kisses i

I didn’t think it would be possible, but, yes, Lucas Donlon, Vampire Lord of the Plains Territory has unseated Raphael, Vampire Lord of the Western Territory, as the most bad-ass alpha in the Vampires of America Series. His love for Kathryn, the compassion he has for his people along with the need for vengeance against his enemies make for one powerful complete package. And I just love Kathryn! She is so independent and loves her baby brother fiercely – wo

I LOVED Lucas!! Really really loved it/him!

Let's start with a bit of a blurp:
Kathryn Hunter is a special agent with the FBI, taking some time off to search for her missing brother. Her investigation brings her on the doorstep of the Lord of Plains Territory (South Dakota) Lucas Donlon, who is at war with a sadistic neighbor Lord. Instant attraction and danger pretty much follows.

I admit I was a little worried... I'm all for Raphael/Cyn in these series. I don't really care about the others and I

Wow! This series just gets better and better with each book. Lucas would have to be one of the most charismatic vampires in this series. He's hot, charming and very talented, both in and out of bed. I'm sure I saw smoke coming out of my Kindle. The chemistry that he and Kathryn create certainly sizzles.

Plot wise it's well rounded, fuller, in depth and of course action packed. DB Reynolds has won me over again with this. It's a winner!

Another great addition to the VIA series!! Loved Lucas!! The ending surprised me by revealing a traitor within Lucas' circle. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series since I think there will be plenty more of Lucas along with Raphael!!!!

Surprisingly this series is as fresh on the sixth installment as it was at the first in terms of interesting and somewhat thrilling characters; stories with enough variety and plot to make the journey interesting and enough bridging from story to story to ensure relationships but never so much that it becomes the same story over and over. These vampire lords definitely get their own star turns. For this outing the Midwest Vampire Lord Klemens cannot be ignor

I had a mixed reaction to Lucas. As a romance is as nice as the previous one, somewhat even better, because they do nor rush the "L" word at all. There's no marathon to mate.

At the same time I couldn't stop thinking about missing possibilities.
At last we had a woman with the same potential as Cynthia: tough, intelligent, determined. But all of this was wasted in the story. In Cyn's case she saves the day twice. Here all that brain power was.. Well, I'm not even sure it was there.

I really love DB Reynolds Vampires in America Series. It makes me think of the Godfather—only with vampires. It’s a fantastic series and DB Reynolds always does great characters with a very strong hero and heroine. Like Cyn, Kathryn is independent and can hold her own—and even help—the vampires. I was a little annoyed with Kathryn’s inability to admit her feelings for Lucas, but she came around in the end. Lucas on the other hand is a very Alpha, totally swoon worthy hero and I don’t have a sing

I discovered the Vampires in America books earlier this year, and I couldn't read them fast enough! I was really sad when I finished Duncan and realized that it was the last one in the series so far. So, when Lucas FINALLY came out, I was so excited, because I knew it would be another amazing book in this incredible series.

I was totally right! Not only was this book just as good as the previous ones, but I think that Lucas is now my favorite vampire. I don't know what was hotter about him: the w

FBI Special Agent Kathryns brother has disappeared, and she just knows something is wrong. Not a word from him, and thats not like him.
Determined to find him, she takes vacation days to search for him.
When the last trace is a vampire bar, she makes arrangements to question the Vampire Lord Lucas. This meeting sparks more than feelings.
Lucas got a lot on his plate at the moment. His neighboring Vampire Lord Klemens is trying to take over and now FBI is knocking on his door for information. What

There is no dearth of vampire romance stories out there, but this one has a display of tactical stratagem and weaponry that separates it from its threadbare equivalents. In book 6 in the Vampires In America series, the fanged hero, Lucas, delivers bloodshed and retribution to maintain his lordship, at the same time wielding the force of his irresistible charm to woo FBI Agent, Kathryn. While Lucas' amiability made him easy to love, it was Kathryn's skill with high-powered rifles and her inner I- ...more

Awesome!!! Loved this book. My favorite of the series so far. The heroine in this book is completely likeable. Rarely do I care much for a heroine, but Kathryn was so real. She could have been anyone. She was capable of mistakes, wasn't trying to be a man, and had no TSTL moments. I loved how the author handled the mystery of the heroine's missing brother. I can't say more without spoilers, but I really, really, liked the unconventional outcome. I love it when story's surprise you. What the auth ...more

Seriously, I feel like a broken record when it comes to this series. They're so, SO good!! This one was especially fun for me because I'm from the Midwest. There were several places mentioned in this book that were like going home for me or the beau (I'm from WI, moved to MN & have family in IL, and my other half is from SD). :)

I already said just how much I love this series despite the very unfortunate covers here and here.

I was trying to analyse why this mix of urban fantasy and paranormal romance suits me so well and came up with a few points:

- the balance of power between hero and heroine. Apart from the unfortunate 3rd book Rajmund, all the women in this series are badass without being overpowering. The same goes for men. There is a great sense of equality that I don't see very often in UF and PNR where ther

Having read way too any vampire romance novels for my own good, and after reading the glowing reviews readers wrote, I had high expectations reading this and in the end, it was somehow lacklustre and not as engaging as one would think.

Lucas is the everyday alpha male, strong, powerful yadda yadda yadda. Katheryn is the female equivalent - she's a FBI agent and she kicks ass. I don't understand why a strong female has to be someone from law enforcement? The girl can be a lawyer/accountant/teache

All I can say is D.B. Reynolds knows how to write a vampire book. This is the sixth book in the Vampires in America series and I am amazed at how engrossing they are. I have read all of them and they keep getting better and better.

Lord Lucas Donlon is the vampire Lord for the midwest territory. He is not especially thrilled to have to meet with a FBI official and does so just to keep off the grid. He was not expecting the beautiful, tall and elegant Kathryn Hunter to walk in. Kathryn is looking

As a tried and true fan of DB I have been waiting for this book ever since I read Betrayed.
Lucas is another strong vamp who had the hairs on the back of neck tingling.
I did love the characters and relationship chemistry which made for some fun yet erotically stimulating scenes. I just love the way the author is able to evolve a relationship between two strong people and make it work without having one of them cave.

As much as I love the author and this series I did feel a bit let down after rea

What it's about: Katherine is an FBI agent who is looking for her missing brother. Her brother was last seen photographing the Badlands of South Dakota. She appeals to the Master Vampire of the area for help … who just so happens to be Lucas, one of the sexiest and alpha vampires around. He's charming (too charming) and dangerous and has taken an interest in one little FBI agent …

Why you should read it: I've enjoyed most of the Vampires in America books and this one has to be one of my favorites
