“Regina in the Sun” is the opening book of another very interesting erotic paranormal series by R.G. Alexander. With all the werewolves, vampires, demons, etc flooding the shelves today, I was pleased that Alexander’s brand of paranormal critters had enough differences to make them stand out from the rest. I’ve already ordered book two and will be curious to see where the plot goes.
Regina is an Unborn vampire, the offspring of a natural vampire and a human, which makes her the lowest caste of vampire. Yet when her clan of outcast Unborns is threatened by a Shadow Wolf, she heads for the Trueblood vamp who befriended her mother and pleads sanctuary. Surely the news of the reappearance of the Truebloods ancient enemy, a Shadow Wolf, will grant her an audience?
Zander is a Trueblood, and not just any Trueblood either. He’s from their purest and most powerful line. That’s why he’s their Mediator, keeping peace amongst all the Trueblood clans. From the moment he first sees Regina, she draws him to her and he quickly figures out that she’s his bloodbound mate and that’s something held in awe and honor by all vampires. Yet it seems one of the Truebloods is working WITH their ancient enemy and now Zander will have to fight tradition and an unknown traitor to keep Regina alive and convince HER to stay with him.
Very hot, very well plotted and executed. There’s enough differences in R.G. Alexander’s new series to keep it fresh in my mind. The book ends with closure and yet there’s also teasers regarding characters for (I hope) the next book. I never know whether to be excited or groan when I find yet another new series to read (like I don’t have enough already), but now I MUST read the next to find out for sure if I’m hooked.
