Vampire master Michelle, and her slave, Aaron Pilan, flee to Paris, leaving behind the slaughter in Las Vegas. Aaron made the costly mistake of taking a bloodslave, and then married her. The tragedy of his wife’s death has driven a rift between them and Michelle is desperate to heal the breach.
Struggling with his predatory alter ego, Aaron is fractious, rebelling against his master. He desires another bloodslave, and that Michelle cannot allow. She opens her heart and soul to Aaron and he relives, through her memories, her dark, gritty tale of survival in the savagery of WWII Paris under the German occupation. Michelle’s staggering revelations are deeply disturbing. The confrontation of master versus slave comes full circle as the couple faces death and separation.
And they are not alone in Paris. An investigator has followed them from Vegas seeking the unique gifts of Michelle’s blood. He’s watching and waiting for the opportunity to make his move against them.
Find out what happens in the third novel of the Nightlife Series.
It grabbed me from the first page. However, makes The Nightlife: Paris so engaging is the reveal of Michelle’s back story. Luedke changes Point of View to first person. We see the world through Michelle’s eyes as she meets the monster who turns her into a vampire. Her past mixes brutality and hope, violation and eroticism. We see Michelle’s humanity and monstrosity. We pity her, cheer for her, and scream at her for bad decisions.
Hyperbole drives me mental. I hate reading reviews like “Best book ever written” and “Just as Good as Tolkien.” I don’t believe them. However, I realized halfway through The Nightlife: Paris that this was indeed one of the best written vampire books I’ve ever read. I have no problem putting it side by side with Interview with a Vampire and I Am Legend. It truly is that good.
When I finished reading The Nightlife: Paris I LITERALLY screamed. I was having so much fun with the book I couldn’t believe it was over. The new book is scheduled for release in September. That’s too far away for my liking.
Buy this book and read it. Buy it now.
I love reading this series, I can’t wait for the next one to come out.
This segment of Michelle and Aaron’s tale is dark and graphic, but with mesmerizing descriptions and a morbidly compelling storyline, I felt this was the best of The Nightlife Series by far.
I was provided an advance copy of this book without charge for an honest review. My opinions are my own and have not been influenced by any payment, agreement or other compensation.

And with the clever use of a lengthy flashback to the romantic era of a war-torn Paris to explain the vampire’s heritage this reader was left in no doubt this book surpassed all expectations with it’s fluent dips into sexual fantasies to please all tastes not demure. The story never drops in pace as we are dragged breathless through one catastrophe after another as the vampires are hunted by an unseen foe until they are separated by circumstances beyond their control, then we really feel how much these creatures can love and yearn what once was. This is a FIVE STAR GOREFEST EROTICA MASTERPIECE.
