The fourth book in the Brotherhood of Blood does not disappoint. I love how Kathryn Smith has somewhat defied the typical romance formula by giving the protagonists a long history (the hero, Reign, has been estranged from his wife, Olivia, for thirty years, which probably isn't very long in vampire years, but I digress--thirty years is a long time to be nursing a grudge!), so we are spared the usual getting-to-know-you/lust-after-you riff-raff, and dig right into the hot chemistry, and there is plenty of it here. The subplot involving the heroine's kidnapped nephew is loosely bound and somewhat bordering on ridiculous but the sizzling dynamic between Reign and Olivia will surely compensate for any flaws within this book. Hoping that there will be more where this came from!
