~ Synopsis ~
 The Vampire of Vancouver (Lovers and Liars, #2)
Aphrodite, goddess of love and lust, is not impressed. After giving up her penthouse suite in trendy Manhattan to go monster hunting around the world, she finds herself in a sad hotel room in Vancouver with a decidedly distracted Loki. She hadn't expected this job to be so serious, and her Norse partner isn't exactly bowing to her whims these days. What was the point in coming with him if they weren’t beneath the sheets all hours of the day? It seems like such a waste of sexual compatibility. Humph.
Meanwhile, Loki, Norse trickster, is equally unimpressed. He hadn't thought taking a beautiful partner along would make his work so difficult. Her unfocused energy grates on his nerves, and his lust for her is only surpassed by his desire for more godly power. He will complete this job, whether she likes it or not, and he’ll walk away one step closer to regaining his old abilities. Now, if only he can get his partner to focus on the task at hand, not seduction. Ridiculous woman.
Aphrodite and Loki, an unlikely team if there ever was one, find themselves in the City of Vancouver hunting vampires. The job is pretty straightforward: rescue the damsel, kill the monster. Unfortunately, even the easiest of jobs hardly ever go according to plan.

Review



The Vampire of Vancouver picks up right after The Maenad of Manhattan.  Right away we see that Loki and Aphrodite are still developing their working and personal relationship.  It is a strong sequel that quickly engages the readers with twisting plot and realistic characters.  Despite being gods, Loki and Aphrodite share many of the foibles of mortals and continue to struggle, grow and develop.  Instead of just reading a story, you start to root for them to grow back into their former glory, but with a bit more respect for humanity and each other.  I eagerly look forward to next book!
