How did this book get such good reviews?
The story takes place in 1990's New Orleans but flashes back to the 1800's. Shannon Drake did tons of research about serial killers, Jack the Ripper, and vampire lore which she recounts to us in pages upon pages of rather boring dissemination. Yes it all eventually ties together but it just isn't that interesting to read. Moreover, it doesn't further to story or the relationship between hero and heroine, neither of whom are ever really developed as characters.

The romance just didn't grab me. I liked the characters but the were in love too quickly, they didn't spend much time getting to know each other.

There was a lot of sex in the book but the scenes were brief and not explicit at all.

In summary we have a vampire romance with little romance, nothing steamy, and too much exposition on serial killers.

To me, not a great start to a series.
