My Review: Vampires. Love 'em or hate 'em they are a large part of popular culture, and have been for a while now. Through in famous artists from history, a reformed art forger, and a missing piece of artwork, and you have yourself an interesting story... Even if you aren't an art lover.

Laila is doing her best to escape, and perhaps atone, for her past as a forger of precious artwork. With an unsurpassed ability to recreate the work of the masters, she could have continued on with the occupation and amassed a fortune, but a life was lost in one of her ventures, and Laila could not forgive her role in the woman's death.

Now her father has been missing, and Laila assumes he is long dead. Then enters John, a mysterious man that Laila finds irresistible, and he claims to have seen her father alive recently. Uncertain of John, but determined to find her father, Laila and John end up in Europe tracking a painting that Laila herself is not certain truly exists.

Into the mix, Laila soon learns that vampires, the Illuminati, and other "mythical" things are, in fact, real, simply carefully hidden from the masses. The painting they seek, a lost Botticelli contains a secret that every vampire and member of the Illuminati would kill to obtain. Not to mention the lengths that art collectors would resort to in order to obtain the masterpiece that was believed to be lost to history.

While I may not exactly have an appreciation of art that Slatton clearly has, I do have an appreciation for a great story, and this one certainly belongs among the masterpieces. This novel does have a bit of a slow start, but it is well worth sticking with it. Filled with action, and enough heat to singe without burning, The Botticelli Affair offers an amazing ride for any reader.

I definitely recommend reading this book!!
