A hidden society of vampires—and the humans they love—are at the heart of this opening novel in a biting, all-original series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga.

Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire, soaking up nourishment from the sun—and, only when necessary, drawing sweet sustenance from humans who are pure in body and spirit. As the right-hand man to his queen, Rafe is a key player at a historic peace summit in New York City, which will unite the vampire nations against a common threat: the sycophants, who feed on humanity and kill indiscriminately. But Rafe’s fascination with a beautiful blond police detective may put everything at risk.

Detective Renee Holden has never worked a homicide quite like this. The victim has twin puncture wounds on his neck, and the only eyewitness swears she saw a vampire. Now’s definitely not the time to get distracted by a seductive stranger. But the suave, darkly austere, exotically handsome Rafe DaSilva is a hard man to deny, and as Renee falls under his spell, she also falls prey to his enemies. Desperate to protect her, Rafe lifts the veil on a shadow realm she can only visit—a world of intoxicating power, terrifying dangers, and forbidden pleasures.

Thirst by Jacquelyn Frank (The Energy Vampires, #1)
Thirst (The Energy Vampires #1)Apparently Detective Renee Holden is about to find out there is more truth to vampires than fantasy tales. Mysterious murders will lead her to the attention of Rafe, an honest to goodness vampire. Yes, he and his fellow vamps suck people dry. No, those shouldn't people die, it is their energy that is taken to sustain these creatures of horror stories. When their attraction rises, Rafe’s need to protect Renee is not shared by his sychophants. Not exposing his world to humanity is just as important, but can he keep Renee from full disclosure? Can he keep her safe when she is near him?

Jacquelyn Frank knows the paranormal she knows the passion they possess. THIRST is book one in a new series with a great idea that fell just short of sucking me in and making me forget this is fantasy. The character development is a little flat and the plot just ran out of energy for me.
