Good Vampires Go to Heaven

So, while I have ALL the books in this series I’ve had zero opportunity to get started with this series from the beginning, having only read this book and the 6th (Even Vampires Get the Blues) – I didn’t find any great difficulty in reading either title without the background from earlier reads. Believe me – when I go on another news/tv/media blackout – this is the series I am starting from step one. (OK – I have 4 of them – but I read fast and I can do this!)

Sandra Hill has a wonderful way of introducing mayhem, chaos and some truly funny characters into her stories, and Zeb is no different. Neither is Regina – both are always looking for a loophole when they ‘care’ to pay attention to rules, and neither is particularly concerned with what others think. Poor Zeb- tasked with turning bad-seed mortals into Lucipires, he’s more than a little bored. Perhaps that is why he’s playing man on the inside for the Archangel Michael?

But, like all things secret- if more than one person knows it, you are in danger, Zeb’s duplicity is discovered and he is now locked away even further from potential escape. And, Michael, head of all things Vangel has sent down an edict that MUST be obeyed. No man is to try to free poor Zeb.

Enter Regina, the woman for the job, wholly unconcerned with Michael’s rule. She’s not a man – Loophole!  And she and Zeb do have a sort of mutual attraction thing happening, even if that isn’t the norm.

Master escape plans, mayhem, multiple laughs and plenty of heat highlight this escape story, with Zeb and Regina at the center.  Sure there are moments of suspense, plenty of steam and laughs, even when some of the laughs are wholly unintended results of some of the more clueless behaviors from Zeb. The Lucipires re funny, in that there seems to be a disconnect between their intentions and actions: they are demonic after all, and we all know that a demon’s first go to will not be rainbows and skittles.  But, Hill manages to make us enjoy the characters and want them to find happiness, leaving everyone with a smile.

About the Book:

New York Times bestselling author SANDRA HILL continues her sexy deadly angels series with a good demon who might finally get his vangel wings…

WHEN HE WAS BAD . . .

Two-thousand-year-old vampire demon Zeb is supposed to spend eternity turning mortal sinners into bad guy Lucipires like himself. That way, they can grow their numbers and fight the vampire angels known as Vangels. But Zeb is a bad boy in a good way—secretly working as a double agent for none other than St. Michael the Archangel in hopes of one day earning his wings. Problem is, Zeb’s betrayal is discovered.

Hello, demon dungeon.

HE WAS VERY BAD . . .

Until Regina, a foxy, flame-haired Vangel witch on a rescue mission, busts out Zeb, along with three oddball Lucipire witches. Hello, temptation!

BUT TOGETHER THEY WERE VERY GOOD . . . !

Their escape unleashes a war to defeat all Vangels forevermore. In an epic madcap battle between good and evil, a Demon just might earn his wings . . . and spend eternity with the Vangel of his wildest dreams.

tastytours excerpt

 

A blue mist seemed to swirl above, then settle around them like a cloudy cocoon. The rain aroma intensified, and for the first time she smelled her own cinnamon fragrance that Zeb had alluded to. Cinnamon rain, for sure. They ought to make a scented candle with that name.

Zeb’s drinking from her was slow and rhythmic and only tiny sips at a time. But, oh, the bliss! It was both primal and sexual. No wonder vangels who mated sometimes fanged each other while making love.

Regina arched her head back to give Zeb better access, an ageless gesture of female submission. How odd! That she would surrender anything to a man!

Only her breasts pressed against his battered body, the rest of her half on, half off the bed, her legs dangling over the side. Still, she adjusted herself so as not to hurt him, and in the process she twined the fingers of one of her hands with his, and she placed her other hand against his head, to hold him in place.

His hand still cupped her nape, but his other hand was making sweeping caresses over her back, from shoulder to rump and back again. Over and over. Even though she wore one of his old T-shirts and jogging shorts, she felt naked under his touch.

Regina was more aroused than she’d ever been in all her life. Not that she’d been inclined to lust very often. Once every century or so.

She wanted to climb atop his body and rub herself against him. Skin to skin. Breast to chest. Pubic bone to pubic bone. Thigh against thigh.

She couldn’t. Even if she could, she wouldn’t.

She wanted to kiss his lips and draw his tongue into her mouth. She would suck on him with childlike hunger. No, not childlike. Nothing childlike about the hunger she was feeling.

In any case, it was a moot point. It was hard to kiss a fanging man when only one set of fangs was involved. Two sets? Impossible! Wasn’t it? They might even get locked together. Imagine Vikar’s consternation if she arrived back at the castle fang-locked with a demon vampire, wanting him to unlock them. They would be the laughingstock of all vangeldom. Angeldom, too, she supposed.

She could imagine the jokes.

“How do two vampires kiss?”

“Carefully.”

Better she concentrate on something else.

She had to stop Zeb’s drinking from her, for now, or she would be drained. Slowly, carefully, she pushed herself up and away, until his fangs withdrew from her with a small pop. He licked the skin, reflexively, to seal the wound.

“That’s all for now,” she said and rose off the bed. Her shaky knees almost gave out. How was she going to do this again and again until Zeb was healed? She would be a basket case. The most satisfied woman in the universe! Or the most stirred up and antsy for release! Yikes!

Zeb’s eyes opened for a moment, and he said, “Thank you.” Almost immediately, he fell back asleep, or unconscious. His body still threw off heat like an inferno; so the danger was not over. Still, she sensed that he was a little better.

She covered his body with a thin sheet, dabbed at the blood on his lips with a tissue (the fangs having retracted already), and finally replied to his comment, “No. Thank you!”
