Immortal Bad Boys opens with Rebecca York's "Night Ecstasy," in which an artist escaping a decaying relationship flees to New Orleans and meets a man who inspires her in every way. But Taylor is surprised to learn of her new lover Jules' odd bedroom habits. Like Taylor, Vickie Anderson, a police officer in Rosemary Laury's "Velvet Night," is looking for a little R & R. When Pete Falcon walks into her life, she wants him, even though being a vampire is only one of his many secrets. Christopher Dante, the vampire hero of Linda Thomas-Sundstrom's "Midnight Court," finds himself consumed by passion for the new consort of Lord Rothchilde. He schemes with and confides in Rothchilde's sister Elizabeth, who might be able to get him close to his obsession. There is, however, something she wants in return. A delectable trio of stories.

Overall it was OK, but I'm glad I didn't buy it new.
The second story, "Velvet Night" by Rosemary Laurey, was passable. Again it would have been alot better read if there was a more in depth plot, with the couple falling in love a little more slowly. It would have been even better if she would have been shot and him turned her. However, I do get that these are short stories, but the writer could have expanded it more.
The third story, "Midnight Court" by Linda Thomas Sundstrom, makes me wonder how this author was ever chosen for this type of book. It was down right awful! The story line is very tough to follow. Yes I did eventually get certain points, but there was no romance, no nothing. At least in the first stories there was romance. The story made no sense.
I would have given the book a four had it not been for the last story ruining the whole thing. Wait until you find this book at a used book store before you spend full price.
"Velvet Night" by Rosemary Laurey. Washington D.C. police officer Vickie Anderson vacations at her Blue Ridge Mountains home where she meets fledgling vampire Pete Falcon. He is so attracted to Vickie that he wants her to be his first human feeding. Vickie isn't aware of his true nature but feels the same. When she finds him caught in a bear trap and sees his fangs, he confesses the truth. He is a DEA agent looking for a meth lab; Vickie assists him although she knows that when he closes the case he will leave on his next assignment. Rosemary Laurey writes a terrific vampire romance starring two characters deserving of their own series.
"Midnight Court" by Linda Thomas Sundstrom. Vampire Lord Dante drinks enough blood to survive. He accepts the invitation of Lady Elizabeth Rothchilde to visit her at her brother's castle. While there, he has sex with and drinks from Lady Elizabeth but his attention is caught by Alan Rothchilde's fiancée. Elizabeth tests Dante's feelings; if he fails he will never leave the castle for Elizabeth is humanity's avenging angel. MIDNIGHT COURT is a spellbinding tale.
These three vampire romances are erotic, enticing and enthralling.
