And we are now on the the next book. It's called In The Blood by Savannah Russe. It's book four of her Darkwing Chronicles series and is fantastic. Here's what the back cover has to say:
If you passed Daphne Urban on the streets of New York, you'd see a sleek young brunette dressed to kill. You'd never know she was a vampire. But the government knows.
Their ultimatum: Spy for the United States, or be terminated. And after all these centuries, Daphne is not ready to call it quits.
One is on the run. Another is dead. Now Team Darkwing is down to its original three: Daphne, Benny, and Cormac. Their latest assignment: Rescue the kidnapped daughters of New York's elite. The terrorist captors demand diamonds - and access to a military secret vital to American safety.
To round out the team, the threesome goes on the prowl for new blood in the dark, secret vampire underworld, where pleasure is the sole pursuit and no idulgence is denied. It is a realm of wild passions that Daphne, hoping for true love with her sexy human boyfriend, has shunned. But temptation is leading her into a risque liason he may never forgive. If she wants to save the abducted girls, she can't get distracted because time is running out...
Savannah's Darkwing series just keeps getting better with each new book. These are reluctant heroes. They are forced to work for the government or face being executed. So the only force standing between us and total destruction are a team of vampires who have been pressed into service under threat of termination.
Daphne is an awesome character. She's extremely strong and yet has so many problems pressing down on her from so many different directions. And her mother, who is also a vampire, makes me glad my own mother is the way she is. Talk about the mother from hell. In The Blood was an awesome book and I am sure you'll enjoy it.
