I couldn't finish this book. The writing is more like a middle school creative writing assignment than a professional writer.
The dialog was choppy and attempts at humor fell flat.
I bought this book and I am sorely disappointed. I won't be trying any more from this author.

Well-written, great romantic vampire book! An interesting twist on the vampire concept, in that it written slightly in the future (just enough to have a few high-tech electronics available that aren't quite on the market now), and vampires are considered an endangered species to be protected. I enjoyed this book immensely; it's my first in reading the popular Amanda Ashley.

If you're looking for something different in a vampire tale - look elsewhere; story is formulaic; okay for a beach read, but that's about it.

I had alot of trouble finishing this book. The writing at times was almost child like and Regan (the female lead) who was supposed to be this great vampire hunter seemed more like a whiney little brat through most of the book. Regan was extremly bias and prejudice through out the entire book, and not open to the possiblity that there could be honorable beings amongst other races eventhough very early on in the book she recognizes that she loves the vampire, Santiago. Her sudden ephiany only heralded the end of the book. As much as I applaud the author trying to make Santiago (the male lead) highly noble, I found I wanted him to fight more for Regan and as times he seemed more of a "handringer" than a true alpha male. The almost anticlimatic ending only drove home the point that this book left alot to be desired. The fact that the cover proclaims that Christine Feehan (one of my favorite authors) found this book sexy and spin tingling makes me wonder if I read the same draft she did.

From Publishers Weekly
Ashley falls short in her attempt to transcend old-fashioned vampire romance in her jumbled new near-future romp. On the trail of a murderer whose victims include mortals and the undead, ex-vampire huntress Regan Delaney is forced to team up, against her better judgment, with the vampires' Master of the City, Joaquin Santiago. As the case develops and the leads grow closer, Joaquin's werewolf nemesis takes advantage by kidnapping Regan to make her his werewolf mate. After Joaquin's daring rescue, the author introduces a dose of Indian mysticism when the two venture into the wilderness to locate a shaman who can cure Reganonly to see Regan kidnapped again, this time by a tribe still living as if in the 19th century. Despite some genuinely warm and clever moments between the partners, the book lacks heat and would have benefited greatly from a more modern sensibility. As it is, the odd juxtaposition of Ashley's old-school romantic voice and damsel-in-distress plotting with paranormal and futuristic elements makes for a frustrating misfit. (Feb.)
