I ended up getting this book from a goodreads giveaway, and loved it!!!! I've read so many paranormal novels regarding vampires and was no way disappointed by this book. I love the story especially Quinn reconnecting with his daughter. I don't like to give too much away about the book you can read the back the book for the description and decide whether you want to read it or not but I definitely suggest reading this book the author did an amazing job!!

I liked the first book, Song of the Vampire and when I heard there was a sequel, I had to check it out. And I have to admit, I had mixed feelings about it. There were some parts that I enjoyed, while other parts I didn’t like so much.

In the first book, I didn't care for Giselle too much, but by the end I began to warm towards her. However, in the sequel my original feeling for her returned. At times, Giselle comes across as annoying with her insecurities, especially when she fusses about Quinn’s past relationships and complains about how he’s nothing like her husband, Myles.

One major source of contention for the couple is the return of Quinn's ex, Pam. I loved Pam from the beginning and I loved reading about her past with Quinn, although Quinn wasn’t the best boyfriend to her, I liked how they made amends and I was rooting for them to get back together. The one thing that bothered me about Pam is how she was written out; I would’ve loved to have seen her stick around.

Aside from Pam, the couple also has to deal with Amber, Quinn's long lost daughter that he never knew. Amber is another character that I fell in love with because she has a sweet and bubbly personality. I loved reading about her backstory and how Quinn and the others were quick to welcome her into the family. However, I would’ve liked to have seen a little tension between her and Nadia.

As for Nadia and Tristan, they weren’t featured as much as I would’ve liked, but they do have their own story. The couple reveals secrets about their past that will surprise you and you’ll see new characters pop up, who are connected to the couple.




Masquerade


Randi Brooks is back in town, and she only has eyes for one hot ageless vampire, Quinn Forrester. Quinn has his hands full as the owner of all three vampire bars in New Orleans and hires the attractive young mortal as his personal assistant. As Quinn and Randi grow closer, the successful entrepreneur also must deal with his unique blended household: a vampire daughter, a mortal daughter who sees dead people, a spiritually connected vampire ex-girlfriend who is her mentor, and a deceased ex-wife that just won’t stay dead. Is his mansion big enough?

Awesome book. If you love vamps then read this. Amazing plot choices and reads well as a standalone, but treat yourself and read all three.
