Friday Frights ~ PNR reviews ~ Not Quite Dead (A NightHunter Novel) by Stephanie Rowe

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 4.5 Stars

This book is totally different from the normal vampire stories that I have read. It is showing a different slant altogether.

It has Eric Hunter, a man who is more, graceful but lethal with sexual innuendo topping everything else. He is out to find his twin brother Tristan who has been missing for a couple of years and has finally found a concrete lead. This is where Jordyn Leahy comes in. In the past Tristan has helped Jordyn and so Eric has called on her to see if she could help him as he was in her old neck of the woods, because of the help that Tristan had done for her she couldn't find it in herself to refuse Eric’s call for help.

Eric had been attracted to Jordyn when he first met her when she was with Tristan and meeting her again now he has found that attraction has not gone away. Treating her with his normal sexual banter it can get quite funny between these two with Jordyn not wanting anything to do with Eric. As far as Jordyn is concerned she is only there to help him find Tristan but Eric being Eric just can’t help himself.

The story is not only about them and does have its scary side and you see exactly what these two have to face in the Louisiana Bayou with evil vampires popping up, betrayals when you least expect them and surprises galore but there is the undercurrent of love as well.

The attraction between Eric and Jordyn does start to build and when he does get to kiss Jordyn even he was surprised how much it affected him

“With a low rumble, he angled his head and deepened the kiss. What had been hot and desperate a moment ago, took on an entirely new level of intensity. He couldn't touch enough of her, his hands roaming her lower back, her hips, and the curve of her butt. Her arms were wrapped so tightly around his neck it was as if she would never let him go. The heat burning between them was electric, pouring off them in batches of steam that made the humid, sweaty night even more intoxicating.”

And as for Jordyn she was not totally un moved by Eric getting to know him more and seeing another side of this deep but fiercely loyal man.

“God, yes, she wanted this man. This arrogant, beautiful, tormented man with secrets so terrible she'd seen them in his eyes.”

She found herself being drawn more and more to this enigmatic but sometimes endearing man.

I haven't been able to say too much about this really great story as I do not want to spoil it for others but I have to say this is a must read for you all to enjoy. Ms Rowe an unusual but really great book.
