If Angels Burn by Lynn Viehl

Yes, yes, yes, I'm doing a happy dance--I've finally found a vampire series I can sink my teeth into (hehehe--pathetic pun, I know, but I couldn't help myself.)


In the depths of human desire, eternity awaits…

She Restores the Light of Hope.

Dr. Alexandra Keller is Chicago's most brilliant reconstructive surgeon.

He Dwells in Shadow.

Michael Cyprien is New Orleans' most reclusive millionaire -- in desperate need of Dr. Keller's skills.A New Dawn Awaits Them Both…

Beneath the foundation of a mansion in the heart of the Garden District, Alexandra will perform an illegal surgery. Her patient’s disfigurement is beyond medical repair. But his body’s ability to recuperate from his wounds borders on the miraculous.

Alexandra knows Michael Cyprien is no ordinary patient. Intrigued by how his remarkable physiology might benefit medical science, she is even more compelled by his presence -- and the mystery surrounding him and his associates, a cadre of immortals who call themselves the Darkyn…



I have yet to read a vampire series that has held my attention--I can't stand the whinny, "poor, put upon me," controlling vampire heros. I have to admit I haven't read the Anita Blake series. I'm having a hard time finding all of them. I think one of my BIL's has the complete set. I'll have to borrow it.

The plot is very logical, and the vampire hero isn't whinny, he tries to be controlling, but the heroine is equal to him in strength. This is what gives the book a solid backbone.

Normally, I prefer books to tie up all story lines by the end, but this is a great start to a series and I'm l looking forward to the next in the series to see where it will go next.

Have a great night, happy reading.
