This is the second spin-off of the Night Huntress series.

Kira Graceling is a private investigator who believes in doing the right thing. When she hears someone being attacked by a group of thugs, she doesn't just keep walking, though she should have because she suddenly finds herself in the world of vampires and monsters.

Mencheres is an ancient Master vampire who's grown weary of the world, until Kira--a fearless, beautiful human--risks her life to save him. To keep her in his world would be dangerous, but he can't stop thinking about her. In the meantime, another powerful vampire who has been planning vengeance against Mencheres for the past several thousand years is readying to strike his final blow, and Kira will be caught in the middle.

I love Jeaniene Frost's books, and this was no exception. I loved the characters. Kira is an amazing, strong heroine with all too human vulnerabilities: a sister who's dying from a terrible disease, a deadbeat brother, and a backstory with an ex-husband/dirty cop. Despite all she's had to face and continues to when she discovers vampires are real, Kira remains centered and brave.

Mencheres is also much more grounded and calm than Bones. Cat and Bones are good with their violent spats, but it was a nice change of pace to have a sweeter romance develop with these two characters. But don't worry, Frost's hallmark of gritty violence and sex are still a big part of this book.
