I went into this book not sure how I'd feel about it, thinking it might have too much romance for my liking, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story takes place during the French revolution, and tells the story of Simone, secretly a vampire outlaw known as LaFlamme, and Michael Corday, an English spy sent to France to track down and eliminate the man funding the Revolution and threatening to bring it to other countries. Simone and Michael's relationship begins as one of convenience, for they are each to help the other in their mission. But soon, Simone feels compelled to reveal her true nature to Michael, and his own feelings of despair about his life begin to dissipate. This book held my interest right up until the very end! :)

Pretty entertaining. Not one of the best vampire books I've read, but enjoyable nonetheless.

After slaughtering the revolutionaries who murdered her family, vampire Simone de la Fer has vowed never to let bloodlust rule her again. As 'La Flamme,' she rescues aristocrats from death.

Michael Thibaut, aka British agent Corday, arrives in Normandy to hunt down England's enemy and meets Simone. He is intrigued and determined to unmask the stranger who disappears into the night.

Part vampire novel, part adventure, but all romance, Night Fires immediately captures your attention. Though the pace might flag a bit, you'll be enthralled by these memorable characters, their dangerous missions and the overwhelming passion that leaps from the pages. Harbaugh masterfully blends the paranormal and the romantic, luring readers into her story and leaving them thirsting for more. SENSUAL (Dec., 350 pp.)

Good plot although there's a lot of repeat. The author seems compelled to repeat a scene from both the hero and the heroines viewpoint.

All told I enjoyed the story, started/finished in hours, and laughed/cried right along with the characters.

Found out only recently that there is a second to this book. Good enough read , I love Vampire romance novels and this one was a little boring to me.

In a time of revolution and turmoil, Simone and Michael find love and trust in each other despite the difficulties of a human/vampire relationship. The detail in this novel is amazing and will keep you guessing up to the very last page.
