ARC Reviews


Night's Caress (The Ancients #1) by Mary Hughes. Paranormal Romantic Suspense, Release & ARC Review.

When artist Brie Lark left her vampire ex and her straitjacket of a hometown to breathe free in New York City, she promised herself two things: she’d never go back to Meiers Corner, and no more vampires. The last thing she expected—or wanted—was to be sent back home on an assignment. But her boss at the FBI needs her undercover on a murder case, working with a black-haired, black-eyed giant god of a man who’s her idea of perfection, except for one thing—he’s a vampire.

FBI Special Agent Seb Rikare is an ancient vampire hardened by loss. He’s cut all emotions to protect himself and leads a deliberately steady, almost sterile life. The brash young woman forced to pose as his lover irritates him, with her jangling bracelets and colorful hair. But as much as she irritates him, he finds himself drawn to her lively spirit and he’s tempted to make fantasy a reality.


FBI special agent Seb Rikare  is an ancient vampire and investigating a string of murders that look like vampire kills.  This is bad because he has to hide the cause from the humans and stop war from breaking out between the vampire clans. 
Brie Lark is an artist who works for the FBI as a civilian.  She is asked to take Seb to her home town.  A place she couldn't wait to get away from. 
This story is almost non stop action.  Some of the fights are really gory as you would expect from vampires.  Our brave heroine will need all her strength just to survive.  Our hero will need to face an old nemesis.  Will he be strong enough to survive the battle.?. 
An absolutely fabulous book.  I can't wait for the next in the series. 



Who am I? A lover of stories that crackle with action and emotion. A mother, a flutist, a binge-TV-watcher of NCIS, Sherlock, and Agents of SHIELD. 

I write steamy, wickedly funny romance including the Pull of the Moon series of witch/shifter love and the Biting Love series where sexy, gritty vampires meet small town mayhem. My martial arts background means the action is real. 

Most of all, I'm a believer in grand passion, a forever kind of love.

I'd love to hear from you!
