RAJMUND GREGOR is a vampire . . . and the undisputed Master of New York City. He bows to no one but his Sire, Krystof, who is the Vampire Lord for the entire Northeastern U.S. Based in Buffalo, NY, Krystof is an old vampire—-too old, it would seem, because he’s slowly losing his mind. Summoned back to Buffalo by his Sire, Rajmund finds his master out of touch and rapidly w ...more

I. Love. This. Series...

And honestly, this is a great book. A fantastic addition to the series, and a more in depth look at this incredible world and its hierarchy. If the romance between Raj and Sarah had been more on than off, I'd have given this story 5 stars, without hesitation.

This wasn't a bad book, I just liked the first two books better because I like the leads more. The leads in this one each annoyed me. The heroine kept secrets too long and acted TSTL sometimes, while the hero pushed the heroine away for too long. The story itself was decent.

There was one thing I didn’t like about RAJMUND – the cover. Out came my trusty, imaginary pencil and presto….. Chris “Thor” Helmsworth. Aahh…much better.

Raphael and Cyn make a brief appearance in the beginning to meet with Rajmund (Raj) in NYC to take care of “business”. While they are there, Cyn wants to meet up with an old friend, Sarah, who is currently living in Buffalo. It’s during this NYC get-together when Sarah and Raj first meet and the sparks st

I would have given the book five stars if it wasn't for the fact that I found the heroine a little on the annoying side. One she kept referring to herself as being shorter than everyone and the author kept stressing her shortness but at 5'4" she is actually average height. The heroine came across as someone with self esteem issue which kind of threw me since Cyn, from Raphael was such a strong, together character. I mean I didn't want the characters to be the same but I wish the heroine had a li ...more

I didn't enjoy this book that much. I found Sarah stupid really, hiding who she was, being TSTL(too stupid to live) by going up against a vampire, blood-house and doing things when she was told it wasn't safe. I mean she acted like a child and had this attitude I'll do what I want to do. The hero was okay. Overall the story didn't work that well for me. Average.

⊱ Irena ⊰
First, I don't consider it a spoiler to warn that this book has a cliffhanger. The main story is complete, so it's not the most annoying kind, but it still leaves you hanging.

In Jabril Cyn teased her friend Sarah because she was leaving California to work as a professor in Buffalo, NY. Rajmund starts with Sarah's nightmare of a kidnapped girl. When Cyn forces her to come with her and Raphael to New York, she meets Rajmund, a powerful lieutenant of the Northeastern Vampire Lord Krystof. When she

While everybody liked this book the most, I found it lacking.

I'm sorry but I didn't like any of the main characters. I stilled loved the plot, the way the story was written and everything else, but Rajmund and Sarah constantly pissed me off.
Sarah was this weak heroine, a school teacher who wasn't strong enough to do anything by herself. What's worst is that she tried, several times to show everybody else she wasn't like that and she just made EVERYTHING worse, EVERY TIME. I didn't like her at al

Rajmund is the epitome of what a hero should be. He has such confidence in himself that there is no need for cockiness so often found in the typical alpha male hero in the majority of paranormal romance. He simply knows his abilities and cares for his people. When the book opens, he is not the master of his territory. But he and Raphael both know a showdown is looming, and they both know Rajmund will be the one to come out on top.

He meets Sarah when the two master vamps meet up. Cyn and Sarah a

God, I just love this series! D.B. Reynolds is just on point with her writing. I could read her stuff all day and all night and not get sick of her stories.

I think the best part about this author is that she doesn't shy away from showing how vampires can be brutal. They don't release their enemies, they freakin' rip their heads off! These aren't squishy, fluffy vampires and I'm growing to love that more and more.

The only reason this isn't a solid 4 stars or higher is because Sarah

I listened to this audio today after reading the story two years ago. Although I thought the narrator could have done a bit better with Rajmund's voice, the story was awesome as it was reading it. I definitely recommend this entire series to anyone looking for a paranormal romance of the vampire variety.

To be absolutely fair to D.B. Reynolds, I am going to say upfront that I am not a fan of paranormal romance. In terms of the Vampires in America Series, we have reviewed, Raphael and Jabril. In Rajmond, the protagonist changes from Cynthia to her friend Sarah. I wish I could tell you that this improved the already disastrous series.

Sarah is haunted by her past. As a young girl, when she began dreaming about women being abused and trying to help the police, her parents thought that she was crazy,

Love, love, loved it! This is my favorite so far of the series. I love the wit in the writing. Obviously well thought out. The writing is full and flowing, the plot is fast paced, always forward moving. Loved the characters. The characters were so real and believable I feel they could actually exist. I love the males in this series. They are the perfect alpha characters finding the one person who reaches their heart.

Liked it well enough, and would have rated higher than 3 stars but Raj just pissed me off too many times. At times, he treated Sarah rather poorly with what he'd say or push her away "for her own good" without proper groveling esp considering all she'd had been through. I hate that bullshit from heros in stories..And esp at the end- WTFever is all I gotta say...That being said I like this series alot and glad to see more of Cyn and my man Raphael(now that's a hero) in the next one.

It started out strong but toward the end they both annoyed me. Sarah pulled a TSTL move and Raj with all the waffling. I want Raphael and Cyn back.

The 3rd book in the Vampires in America series was quite different than the previous 2. Of course it would be as it focused on different characters this time around. While Rajmund was alright, it was really Sarah that made this book feel so different than book 1 and 2. Cyn had been strong, a force of her own and though she was not a vampire she held herself as an equal... a peer. Sarah's story is quite different and for me, that made all the difference. I found her annoying, insecure, weak wille ...more

**4 1/2 stars**

I read books one and two back to back and although i enjoyed them, there was something that was missing for me, i liked Cyn and Raphael together but there just wasn't enough of them together!! There was more time spent on the police drama (and quite frankly, too much emphasis on what a tough bad-ass PI Cyn was) than on the romance/relationship between them. It was enough that i was seriously considering not continuing with this series.

I'm SO thankful that my OCD on giving up on a

I liked the first book (Raphael) and I like this one even better. Rajmund was a ‘warmer’ person than Raphael but certainly not a teddy bear. Just as alpha but less powerful than Raphael, he is still a power to be reckoned with.

The setup was interesting with converging plot lines for both the hero and the heroine. Sarah is a human friend of Cyn’s (Raphael’s mate from books one and two) who has left sunny California for a teaching position in a Buffalo, New York university. And if teaching freshma

2.5 Stars.

The cons - like all the others this story ends with an epilogue that is really a lame-ass cliff hanger set up for the next book, ending with the groan worthy cheese of "to be continued." I heartily recommend skipping the epilogues unless you want to immediately begin reading the next book. All these books end this way.

There were several irritating tropes used in this book, irritating to me anyway. First, while the heroine is not too stupid to live, she does spend a considerable amount

I am pretty flexible in my heroines in the books that I read, I can handle a lot of types (within reason) however Sarah irked me - moan, lie, cry was Sarah's way. It was also bizarre that she has a supposedly good friend in Cyn, who would be more than supportive, and yet never confided her "secret" to her, please! After Cyn Sarah pales into the ether, however I may be biased as Cyn is one of my top 10 fictional favourite women. Having said that Rajmund could be a tad annoying too in his denial o ...more

(RabidReads.com)Recently I came across this book and realized I needed to get back into this series, because the first two were excellent. I am so glad I did, because I could barely lay this one down, it was so good.

The story this time around is not about Raphael and Cyn, but about Cyn’s friend Sarah that has moved to Buffalo to teach at a college there. She’s got secrets and is pretty much hiding out. When Cyn and Raphael visit New York City to see her, they introduce her To Rajmund at one of t

This was the very enjoyable story of Rajmund and Sarah. Rajmund is second-in-command to crazy Krystoff and is Master of Manhattan. It seems that these vamps go a bit nutty after being alive for too long. Understandable I suppose.

We met Sarah briefly at the end of book 2; she is a friend of Cynthia who leaves California for an assistant professor position in Buffalo, NY. She is a woman hunted by her dreams. She’s able to see and feel the pain of those in danger. I would have liked this to be expl

In this story the Northeast vampires take center stage. Cyn and Rafael are only in the book briefly. But the reader gets so wrapped up in these new vampires, she doesn't miss Cyn ad Rafael too much…..because Rajmund is delicious and totally lovable….powerful…..sexy. You get the idea.

The rogue vampire investigation and Sarah's involvement in it kept the plot moving along and the impressive showdown between Raj and Krystof is gratifying. New vampires are introduced, most no
