Love is a high-stakes game.
A century and a half ago, Ante Novak died on a Croatian battlefield—and rose three days later as a vampire. Now he haunts Las Vegas, stealing blood and money from drunken gamblers and staying on the fringe of the powerful vampire organization known as the Shadows. His existence feels empty and meaningless until he meets beautiful Peter Gehrardi, who can influence others with his thoughts.
An attraction flares instantly, bringing a semblance of life to Ante’s dead heart. But the Shadows want Peter too, and they’re willing to kill to get him. As Ante and Peter flee, they learn more about themselves and each other, and they discover that the world is a stranger place than either of them imagined. With enemies at their heels and old mistakes coming back to exact a price, how can Ante and Peter find sanctuary?

4.5 Stars

Ante is a vampire living in Vegas. He roams the strip looking for drunk men that he can take a little blood and money from so he can survive. Out one night on the prowl, he comes across an attractive guy who seems to have a knack for charming people out of their winnings.

Ante and Peter are attracted to one another, but after drinking from Peter, Ante is curious as to what kind of species Peter is. When the Shadows, the vampires who run Vegas, call Ante to a meeting and request he find the elf running around Vegas, Ante realizes the elf they are looking for is Peter. Ante refuses to turn him over because he wants to protect Peter, although he’s not sure why. As they run from the shadows the feelings they have for one another deepen.

I absolutely adored Ante and Peter and they fit together perfectly. This was just a really fun and easy story to read. It had humor, romance and some action, too. It was well-written and paced well and Peter and Ante were both likable and had great chemistry.

This was a pretty light, considering the subject matter, and easy to read story that I really enjoyed. The writing was great and I found I couldn’t put the book down! Very enjoyable and very recommendable!
