Warrior vampire Garrick Labar guards the secrets of the Guild. His comrade— vampire and sorcerer Ramon Travere—enforces the uneasy alliance between mortals and immortals. When Larissa Devine moves into town, both Garrick and Ramon are mesmerized and enraptured by her. They crave to claim her as their crimson swan and lover. But a new arrival is fair game and if they don’t claim her first, a band of renegades will.
Larissa finds a blistering-hot ménage with her protectors too intoxicating to resist. The immortals can’t deny their sexual attraction for her and sense her blood pulsing hot and furious whenever they are close. Erotic desires thrust her into a world of danger and seduction. When the renegade vampires attempt to destroy a hundred years of peace, Larissa is caught in the crossfire. Eternal love and carnal nights can be her future if she survives.

Vampires can seem a little old hat nowadays, so putting them into quite a mundane setting as a lingerie shop, is refreshing and poised with playfulness. The characters were likeable and, although paranormal, oddly believable. It’s very well written, and the plot moves at a steady pace.
From a writer’s perspective, the leading lady, Larissa is described as ‘big hipped, small breasted’ and well, kind of normal looking which led me to an internal debate. Part of me, the real part, loved this. We’re bombarded with un-natural images of big boobed, air-brushed beauties who are held up to all as the standard we must adhere to – and inevitably never do. The media is the biggest camp to blame for this – celebrities being their pawns and tools to sell, papers, clicks, products to us ‘normal’ folk looking to grab at a bit of stardust. And to have a normal woman in a book, is lovely. However, there’s another part of me, the fantasy-prone crazy who, having been conditioned to only read about and watch beautiful people, feels uncomfortable about it. There are so few women in the world who are completely happy with their looks that, in their day dreams they appear as a natural reflection. When we read fantastical stories, is the hardest thing to believe that a normal looking woman can be the object of desire? As much as I’ve just written about this, and as high as this soap-box seems to be – I really can’t decide.
The front cover is a little more fantasy than the contents, so to be honest a more usual Ellora’ s Cave front cover would have done it more justice.
Overall, I’d give Night Lords 4 out of 5 stars, vampires are still sexy and this is definitely worth picking up to indulge in a bit of Fang-tasy!
