I love vampires and all creatures of the night but I want them to have to co-exist in our world where crimes committed by humans is just as horrendous as the damage they can inflict. Red Fire is about a human cop who must work with a vampire – granted he doesn’t believe the stunning Russian is a vampire – in order to solve brutal crimes. What our hero doesn’t understand is his utter attraction for the man and his need to be dominated.


“Heinous as in sexual in nature.”

“I see and for some reason you believe that because I photograph men in somewhat compromising erotic manners or as you would say ‘kinky-in-nature positions’ depicting what the untrained eye would consider to be violent or barbaric, you believe somehow I had something to do with these killings, Detective?” A light snarl curled on his upper lip as a single hiss slid from his mouth.

His words cut a slice through his system, sending another jolt of shivers racing through every blood cell in his body and the chill startled him. Jax tipped his head and eased forward, their noses now only two inches apart. “What I believe, Aleksandr, is that both of them had a direct connection to your studio and perhaps were both models that you’ve worked with recently for your showing. What I believe is that there’s a distinct possibility there are some things that you might know about the killings and are unsure of. What I know is that two men were ruthlessly murdered in their homes by something that could only be described as a savage animal. And while I appreciate your glowering attitude about this in the direct confrontation, I have a job to do.”

They remained staring into each other’s eyes for several minutes until finally Aleks pulled back. A slight grin matched the twinkle in his eyes. “Very foreboding, Jax Steele. I can see that you’re very committed to your job.”


Jax Steele was a haunted man. A Detective by trade, damning visions of a wretched event had taken not only his soul but also the family he loved dearly. Living a shadowed life, he accepted every wretched case given with a vengeance, determined to right the wrongs of his horrible past. When young men began showing up slaughtered like animals, the nightmares began all over again pulling him into his own private hell. All clues led to an elusive erotic artist of Russian decent who enjoyed the dark arts of BDSM and Jax believed he’d found his killer, yet intense hungers buried deep within were awakened and he wanted nothing more than to become Aleks’ student.

Aleksandr Vasiliev carried dark secrets of his own. A monster to some, the vampire had forsaken his past and the family regime in search of a new life away from murdering humans. Unfortunately his previous subjects turned up gutted and he was the only suspect. As Jax and Aleks forged a bond to try and find the murderer, each suspected something that neither could control. As the power of domination and control swirled around their relationship, Jax was forced to face not only his ugly past but also hungers that burned deep in his soul. Betrayed, Aleks was determined to save Jax, his true mate but powerful vampires from his past threatened not only his lover but the entire human race. In a race against time, few would survive.

This one isn’t for the shimmering vampire lovers so…
