I liked “Dark Harvest” by Lynda Hilburn and I’m not sure I can really explain why. It’s not because I couldn’t figure out the bit of mystery in this second book about Kismet, a shrink who gets pulled into the reality and power struggles of the vampire world. I knew who the bad guys were pretty quickly and saw most of what was coming. What kept me reading was the way Kismet tried to deal with the horror and mess her life has become and what she learns about herself in the process.
There’s quite a bit of scorching hot vamp sex for Kismet in this book and she’s entranced by a seriously bad baddie nicknamed the Slayer by other vampires. If you’re up against a vampire other vampires fear, it’s a good idea to be terrified! Her main vamp Devereux is still in the picture and still pushing Kismet to call herself his mate…and he’s still smoking hot. But this time, his protections aren’t working as well as either he, or Kismet, would like.
There’s also witches and weres and humans and minions in this series; and really, what more do you need for a few stimulating hours of reading pleasure?
