She’s seen the past…
OWEA Agent Beatrice Davis is haunted by the death visions that help her solve crimes. When Detective Claude Desmairis, her vampire ex-lover, asks for her assistance on a case, she’d rather help him than take the mandated leave to stave off her burn-out.
The truth won’t stay buried…
Pressed to solve a series of crimes before the perpetrator blows the vampire world apart, Claude turns to a woman he thought he’d been able to leave behind. But he was wrong, and his feelings for her will only bring trouble in an investigation this dangerous.
As their passions reignite, they see a possible future together. Until her visions show her the face of the murderer—a man Claude can never betray.
Proceed With Caution:
This book contains violence, blood, death, and mentions of torture.
This is the fourth and final novella in the series, but it does stand alone. Mostly. Events from Lycan Unleashed are mentioned, but you don’t need to have read it to understand this plot. However, if you do read the books out of order, this one will spoil that one a bit.
Vampire Games would have been my favorite if it was longer. As it is, it is sadly my least favorite of the bunch. It’s still not bad, but there are so much goodness happening that didn’t get fully explored! For one, vampires are my favorite paranormal entity, so it was already winning on that front. I wish we had gotten to learn more about them beyond they drink blood and give off an aura of fear. But the sex scenes between Claude and Beatrice were great, because I love a good bite!
The mystery of Vampire Games was more complicated than the previous three books. This definitely needed more page time to fully wow me. There were too many moving parts to cram in less than 200 pages on top of the second chance romance. Beatrice is a psychometrist, which means she gets visions of death from touching a victim’s possessions. She’s been haunted by the face of a vampire for her entire like when her brother disappeared. Now, that same face appeared on a new case. However, Claude is adamant that her vision doesn’t mean what she thinks it means. Then there’s a lot of twists and turns, and back and forth, but at that point we already knew who dun it.
I just wish Vampire Games had been longer so I could really get invested. There’s a lot of good and interesting stuff going on, but only superficially. It’s all glossed over and rushed.
