My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

Vampire master Michelle, and her slave, Aaron Pilan, leave the heartbreak of Vegas for a new start in Paris. Aaron’s mistakes in Vegas make him question everything he knows about Michelle, and the prospect of a long, lonely future with her.

Struggling with his predatory alter ego, Aaron chafes under Michelle’s rules. His animalistic desires drive him to take a lover without conditions – a bloodslave – but Michelle refuses.

Michelle is not blind to Aaron’s needs. She answers his demands by opening her heart and soul to him. Their minds intertwine and Aaron relives her dark, gritty tale of survival in the ravages of war-torn Paris under the German occupation. Her disturbing revelations are met with shock, pushing Aaron even further from her. For the first time, Michelle begins to reconsider the way she has lived all these decades.

And they are not alone in Paris. An investigator has shadowed them from Vegas, seeking the unique gifts of Michelle’s blood. He hunts the vampires, attacking them at their most vulnerable time. Michelle and Aaron face death and worse – separation.

Aaron and Michelle’s wicked, pulse-pounding tale drags readers breathless through one cataclysmic event after another.

Everyone has a little bit of darkness in them. Hallie’s denied her own inner demons for months, running whenever someone gets too close to illuminating things she’d rather keep hidden. On the run from her past yet again, she fakes some credentials to join an archaeology expedition to the Sumatran jungle that sounds like the perfect way to escape. Out of her depth, she struggles not to let her teammates know she’s not really one of them, but she learns the dragon temple they discover might provide answers to questions she’d been afraid to ask.

The first night inside the temple she awakens to an invisible presence bringing her to heights of pleasure she’s never known before. He then disappears into the darkness without a word. She chases a shadow that might just be a hallucination, but pleasure like that can’t be all in her head.

When she finds her shadow man, she also comes face to face with her own darkness. She is forced to reconcile her past in order to embrace the person who will finally give her a reason to stop running.

Spotlight on The Nightlife: Moscow – An exclusive casting session with author Travis Luedke

There’s been a lot of buzz recently about our favorite steamy reads getting movie deals – It seems Hollywood finally got the hint that turning Best Sellers into Box Office Hits isn’t exclusive to YA Fiction – Scripts for several Romantic series are being passed around to film and television producers.

This got us thinking about our favorite series and which ones deserve their time on the silver screen…

One of the first series to come to mind was The Nightlife Series by Travis Luedke. This series is full of badass Vampires, blood, gore, action, and deliciously hot sex – PERFECT for the big screen, so we cornered Travis and asked him an important question: 

If The Nightlife Moscow was turned into a movie – how would you cast your characters?

So grab a bowl of popcorn and get comfortable as Travis Luedke puts faces to all the characters we’ve come to love (or love to hate). You’re about to find out why we’re completely enamored with this blood-soaked and sinfully sexy series!

The following is Travis Luedke’s response, in his own words.

Dimitri and his twin brother, Alex, always led a charmed life. The inseparable twins were were good looking and smart. They grew up in an idyllic part of the world on the island of Crete.

After that Dimitri struggled to fill the emptiness his brother’s death left behind. He had girlfriends. He had boyfriends.

Then the offer of a lifetime fell at his feet, an expedition the likes of which he’d never imagined and just outrageous enough to spark his interest.

After a two-week trek through the Sumatran jungle, Dimitri’s wildest dreams are trumped by what he finds inside the dragon temple. Twin golden dragons await inside a dark chamber for him to awaken them. Will he be able to satisfy them both? All he knows when faced with the dilemma is that his sanity might just depend on it.

I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets…

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.

Karen Marie Moning – Darkfever

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Series: Fever, #1

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

“My name is MacKayla, Mac for short. I’m a sidhe-seer, one who sees the Fae, a fact I accepted only recently and very reluctantly.

My philosophy is pretty simple – any day nobody’s trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven’t had many good days lately. Not since the walls between Man and Fae came down. But then, there’s not a sidhe-seer alive who’s had a good day since then.”

When MacKayla’s sister was murdered, she left a single clue to her death, a cryptic message on Mac’s cel phone. Journeying to Ireland in search of answers, Mac is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to master a power she had no idea she possessed – a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae.

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysteriou Jericho…while at the same time, the ruthless V’lane – an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women – closes in on her. As the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: to find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book – because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control both worlds in their hands.

Camille’s smart, bookish, and very shy demeanor has left her in the dust where men are concerned. But she loves her job as a linguist specializing in lost, ancient languages. When she gets chosen for an expedition into the far reaches of the Sumatran jungle the likes of which no one has attempted before, she jumps at the opportunity. Along the way, she becomes enamored of the geologist, a beautiful man named Eben, but is too shy to approach him and he seems to keep his distance.

Something inside the dragon temple awakens a deeper part of her and soon she learns of the ritual to awaken a long-forgotten race of creatures the world hasn’t seen in thousands of years. Her research tells her she’s a key. A virgin sacrifice. But it doesn’t tell her what that means. The magic in the temple reveals only that the dragons must awaken for her to earn Eben’s attention.

She sheds her inhibitions in one dark, heated moment to make it happen. What follows is pleasure beyond her wildest and dirtiest dreams.

For Erika and her team of Ivy League-educated archaeologists, trekking through a hot, wet jungle and penetrating the depths of the elusive dragon temple they’ve been hunting is all in a day’s work. Little do they know that once inside, their minds and bodies will become immersed in centuries-old magic, the tantalizing effects of which they are powerless to resist.

In spite of her attempts to prove she still has control, the magic compels Erika to begin a series of rituals to revive the long-sleeping denizens within the temple. Uncertain what to expect, her desire wins out when she sets eyes on the figure she is meant to awaken—a red dragon bound in the form of a beautiful man frozen in jade but definitely ready for her attention.
