When artist Brie Lark left her vampire ex and her straitjacket of a hometown to breathe free in New York City, she promised herself two things: she’d never go back to Meiers Corner, and no more vampires. The last thing she expected—or wanted—was to be sent back home on an assignment. But her boss at the FBI needs her undercover on a murder case, working with a black-haired, black-eyed giant god of a man who’s her idea of perfection, except for one thing—he’s a vampire.

FBI Special Agent Seb Rikare is an ancient vampire hardened by loss. He’s cut all emotions to protect himself and leads a deliberately steady, almost sterile life. The brash young woman forced to pose as his lover irritates him, with her jangling bracelets and colorful hair. But as much as she irritates him, he finds himself drawn to her lively spirit and he’s tempted to make fantasy a reality.


Night's Caress is the first book in The Ancients series by author Mary Hughes. I found this to be a super sweet read. I adored this one.
Seb is an ancient vampire.  Hardened by losing someone close to him. He has the power of suggestion.
He is tracking a serial killer who also happens to be a vampire. He prefers not to tamper with people’s minds unless he absolutely has too.
Brie has moved to NY to escape the memory of her vampire ex.  When she has to go undercover as Seb’s lover to help catch a killer she has to fight her feelings for the sexy man as well.
I found Brie to be competitive and smart.  She is a great asset to Seb.
This story is fast paced, has some really well written memorable characters. I would love to see more from this series in the future.  I love a good cop story and this one has a paranormal twist that kept me reading it.
