Morgan’s Review:

This is number 3 in the Mark Julian Vampire P.I Series. I
suggest you read the first two books in order to have a better understanding of
the Characters.  
This installment starts out with Mark, nervous, faced with
the task of planning his and Vin’s wedding alone. Little does he know, Vin’s
Mother has decided to lend a helping hand as well, and is bringing along her
best friend Teresa Castillo to help. These two little ladies are a trip when
they get together. They are not to be crossed.  As Maria and Teresa are off having a little
meeting with the archbishop, Mark receives a visit from a very unexpected guest
that adds a little more chaos to Marks life.  The Angel Raphael needs Mark’s help in finding
the sword that once belonged to the Archangel Michael. The sword was once
responsible for trapping away great evil. Now, there are two Dark Angels back
and they are on the Hunt for the Sword. Mark must got to any lengths possible
to make sure he reaches it first. The search is on. As Mark  follows his list of leads, Vin has a not so
pleasant encounter with the two evil Dark Angels.
In this story, we get to learn more about Mark’s past and
also get to see the events behind his turning.
This book is definitely not all romance and roses.  We have action, violence, danger, and lots of suspense.
Be ready for a story that will bust out all types of different emotions. It
doesn’t end on a very happy note, but it will definitely make you long for the
next book in the series. 
Final determination is four pieces of eye candy.

R-Rated Excerpt
Together Once More
Despite Mark’s eagerness to dive right into the
investigation, he realized he needed to be patient until the next day when the
names Raphael promised would be provided to him. He left his office for home
thinking that at the very least he could discuss the general outlines of job he
was undertaking with his lover. He had long
realized that, as a NYC detective, Vinnie’s perspective on
cases was a valuable resource.
Unfortunately Vinnie was not home when he arrived. Hoping to
secure any possible information about the sword’s whereabouts Mark pulled out a
Bible that Vinnie’s mom had given to her son.
Though there were passages mentioning the Archangel Michael,
nothing in any of them indicated what had been the fate of his sword. He was soon
frustrated. With no other ideas on what to do next, he decided he would try to
get some much needed sleep until Vinnie’s return.
Despite his best efforts however, all he could think about
his current lack of a clear plan to successfully complete the job. He was still
tossing and turning in their bed at three in the morning when an exhausted
Vinnie got back to their apartment. The PI heard his lover making the same type
of racket he always did when he was late getting home at night, while
endearingly trying not to be noisy. Somehow the brawny New York City detective
was simply incapable of being quiet. Mark sighed, just happy to know his
soon-to-be spouse had arrived back safely.
While he listened to Vinnie showering he wondered about the
case the latter was currently assigned too. 
Normally they shared the details of their respective cases, but this one
had become the exception to that rule. For some reason, Vinnie was under strict
orders not to divulge any of the facts about it to anyone. Although he had
tried to pry something from Vinnie, the latter had insisted he had given his
word of honor to keep silent. Once Mark heard that he stopped all further
inquiries on the matter. Vinnie took great pride in keeping his promises and he
did not want to be the cause of the detective not keeping such a commitment.
Vinnie’s belief in keeping one’s personal integrity was another quality that
bound them even closer.
He heard the shower go off and then a few minutes later,
Vinnie’s quiet footsteps moving toward their bed.  Bad day, hon?” Mark quizzed.
“Always a bad day,” Vinnie muttered. “About to get better.”
In a few seconds Mark felt the powerful presence of his
lover’s  well-muscled, taller frame
spooning close to his own back. Mark wanted to inform Vinnie right away about
the day’s events.
Vinnie’s actions however, clearly indicated he had something
other  than a nice chat in his mind. As
he felt the heat of his lover’s torso pressed against him, Mark decided to
simply enjoy the moment.
They had the rest of the night to discuss the location of a
“God, I miss you every second of every waking moment.”
Vinnie  kissed Mark’s ear before
beginning a sensual nibbling. His bristly five o’clock shadow erotically
scraped along the surface of the side of Mark’s neck. The vampire felt his
heart beat faster as familiar sensations of pure arousal flared.
“Oh, you do, huh,” Mark whispered as he pushed himself  backward into Vinnie’s powerful embrace. He
sensually wiggled his rump against Vinnie’s aroused manhood until, as he hoped,
he felt his partner moan with delight.
“Oh, babe,” Vinnie grunted as he pulled Mark tighter towards
The detective kissed the now tender skin of Mark’s neck. His
warm breath brushed against the vampire’s hair. “More,” Mark mumbled as he used
his hips to wiggle his rump faster across Vinnie’s growing erection.
“Fuck,” Vinnie gasped as he humped against Mark’s backside.
Soon both men were fully erect.
“Definitely.” Mark sighed.
“Oh babe, I’m so beat I don’t think I have the energy.”
Vinnie chuckled, even as the erection that was pressing on Mark’s rear seemed
to indicate otherwise.
Mark shifted around so that he could face Vinnie. His own
respectable arousal now pressed against his lover’s. “Really? Too tired?” He teased
as he leaned his head forward towards Vinnie’s so they could kiss. Vinnie’s
slowly traced the outline Mark’s lips with the tip of his tongue while Mark let
his right hand descend between their bodies to fondle Vinnie’s nipples. This
action brought gasps from his partner as they stiffened under Mark’s grip.
“Well, maybe not that tired.” Vinnie groaned as he reached
downward to firmly take their joint hardness into a grip of his own.
He slowly pumped them both as they continued kissing. By now
their bodies were sweating. “Mark, I love you man.” Vinnie hissed in the height
of ecstasy, as he rested his head on Mark’s shoulder.
“Same, babe.” Mark let himself float on the erotic
stimulations being created by Vinnie’s expert mutual masturbation. Soon Vinnie
was nipping on Mark’s ear, knowing this drove the latter to an even higher
state of arousal. Mark responded by increasing his own manual stimulation of
Vinnie’s nipples. With the patient skill of longtime sexual partners, each had
by now an instinctive knowledge of precisely what turned on the other. The room
filled with their panting. Mark knew that both were edging closer towards a

“Aw yes.” Vinnie groaned………………..
