Kacie Renault has come home to Winslow castle in Hocksley, England to pack a few of her things. She plans to move to the states with her boyfriend, Ben. When she arrives she finds that her father is away and there is only Erik to greet her. Erik’s a vampire, and not exactly at the top of Kacie’s list of friends with her pastime as a slayer, but Erik is about to become the only one who can save her.

Accused of slaying Sedrick, the brother of Erik’s friends, Michael and Ty, she’s about to find out what little tolerance vampires have when one of their own is killed. Michael is demanding Kacie’s life for his brother’s and Erik has refused, making it clear that he will protect her at all costs. The pact between Erik and Michael’s lair is now in jeopardy, and without it there will be little protection for the local humans.

A bit of snooping provides a startling discovery for Kacie, and armed with nothing more than the information she’s found she plans to use it to her benefit. The local chupacabras have hidden and gone undisturbed for centuries, but Kacie’s meddling could once again shatter the delicate balance between man and beast.

Lord of the Night is the fourth book in the Night Slayer series of paranormal romances. Kacie has her life all planned out, and wants no part of a vampire regardless of how sexy he is. Erik is about to show the slayer a side to vampires that she’ll never forget. Ms. Popp pens a well-detailed vampire tale and adds some intriguing twists. A fast moving storyline builds the tension that links slayer and vampire, while the sizzling chemistry between them quickly boils over. While part of a series, this book is easily read as a stand-alone.

I need to look into this series. I haven't heard of it. Or if I did, I didn't know it was a series.

I read the first one a few years ago, Out of the Night, but I missed the second and third books. I didn't know it was a series either, because I was surprised that this was the fourth book. :)

Paranormal romance has become a big genre among book review bloggers, I'm seeing. I guess I need to delve a little more into it myself. :)

Hi Kimberly!
Great review! I never read Robin T Popp before. I like that you said it can be read as a stand alone. That's very encouraging and I like when reviews say that. It's so dissapointing when I have to read 10 books to catch up in a series. I like being able to read any book and to not feel like anything is spoiled or not known.

Check my blog out. :) Lots of updates. :)

T.C. - I've always been a horror and paranormal fan, so with all of the choices out there now it's like being a kid in a candy store. *grin*

Rachael - Thank you! I try to remember to put that in when I can, but if there are any that you're curious about just holler. :) I'll pop over and see what you've been up to right now!

This looks interesting. I've never heard of the author.

Hi Crystal...There's a bit of a twist in there that you won't really be sure what the outcome will be. :)
