Love and Brimstone

Brimstone Vampires 1

Anastazia “Taz” Proctor is a high-powered attorney with infallible instincts and intuition. She’s never been wrong before. Matthias Hawthorne has an offer for Taz. He’d like her to work for him as a staff attorney, but that’s not all there is to it.  Matthias’ cousin Rafael Collins will also be involved and all three are vampires. They are not your typical vampires though. They are a little different. Rafe and Matts have known most of their lives what they are, and are extremely old. Taz is just now finding out.
Now I like the new concept Ms. Richardson brings to the vampire myths and legends. What I didn’t care for was Taz. She’s self centered, narcissistic and just plain a spoiled brat who won’t grow up and listen to those around her who actually know more. She wants answers to her questions then throws baby fits when she doesn’t like the answers. And she doesn’t learn that she’s being nothing but a bitch till a serious tragedy strikes.
While I could understand Matts trying to be patient and loving to help Taz transition into her new life, he needs just a little more of a spine. More than once, Matts lets Taz to get away with acting like a two year old when he should have taken her over his knee and whipped her ass, figuratively anyway. Maybe then she would have dealt with the changes in her life like a grown up instead of a baby.

Still, all in all a decent read though.

Book Blurb for Love and Brimstone

The soul always comes home...

Ice queen Anastazia "Taz" Proctor is an aloof attorney, a "fixer." Hunky Matthias Hawthorne wants her for more than just an employee...much more. Will she believe him when he reveals their shared secret--that they're vampires, but that it's not the way Hollywood portrays them? Maybe not, but with someone out to kill her, she might not have a choice. She also can't ignore what her body tells her about her handsome boss.

An escape with Matthias to the safe refuge of Yellowstone National Park leads Taz to discoveries about her lineage and what she can do with her newly awakened powers. Even more disturbing is her unexplainable attraction to Matthias's handsome cousin, Rafael.

Time grows short as a traitor in their midst makes another attempt on Taz's life. Will she and Matthias survive when they're caught in a vicious showdown between Love and Brimstone?
