The Vampire of Vancouver
Lovers & Liars Book 2

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 on a beautiful partner 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.
This picks up where we left of in Maenad of Manhatten, and I liked this one better than book one. Aphrodite didn’t seem AS shallow and boring as she first did to me in book 1.
In this book it sees Aphrodite travel to Vancover with Loki in search of a missing daughter of a affluent family. Which in turn leads them to Vampires. They soon realize that more is at work than they initially thought, and that then changed the deal Loki had made with the girls father.
This was a great follow up in the series and I am loving the mix of God and Goddess with other supernatural and paranormal being. I look forward to reading more in this series.
