Author: Travis Luedke
Series: The Nightlife Series (# 1~4)
Genre: Paranormal/Erotic/Vampires

The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

Vampires, strippers, escorts, nightclubs, pimps & dirty cops – the Nightlife Series is never boring.

Can decadence, corruption and prostitution go hand in hand with self-control? Over-indulgence, illegal activity and vampires lurk in darkness when night falls on the city.

The Nightlife Series explores the sexy, dangerous misadventures of vampires and an interesting assortment of wickedly corrupt men and women of the night. Gangs, pimps, prostitutes, cartel, mafia, drug dealers, addicts, alcoholics, and all those wonderfully colorful people you find rubbing elbows in the back alleys, nightclubs, and strip joints.

These creatures inhabit a world of constant blood, sex, and arousal. The act of feeding is highly erotic, victims often experience multiple orgasms. A vampire’s bite is the most powerful drug imaginable, ecstasy, euphoria, and an ever-present potential for nightlife quietly, unobtrusively, until cornered. Then it gets ugly, people die. addiction. Lethally violent predators, they can cut through flesh like a hot knife through butter.


I thoroughly enjoyed this 4 in 1 set by Travis Luedke.  The unique writing style peaked my interest while I fell for the characters more and more as I devoured New York, Las Vegas, Paris and Bloodslave.  While I loved Michelle and Aaron in these, Hope captured my heart in the final installment.  Her connection and Travis's world blew me away.  Left me wide open and wanting more.

In New York, we start with Aaron and while his life is an average life of a lonely young man in the beginning, he soon finds his world turned upside down after he makes the decision to rescue a damsel in distress.  Michelle swore off ever putting another what she had survived years past when Aaron walks into her life.  On the brink of death, Aaron is saved and Michelle his angel.  

Whether or not Aaron wanted the life of a creature of the dark, the bond he shares with Michelle is overwhelming to say the least.  She has a power over him that he cannot deny or fight.  Her only understanding of being a 'Master' was inhumane torture but when feelings arise between her and Aaron there's little they can deny from each other through their psychic bond.

In Las Vegas, both Michelle and Aaron are on the run, settling down only to lay low.  Their past left in New York as well as their mistakes made.  When Anastasia walks into their lives Aaron claims her as his.  Sharing the life of the night Ana cannot deny herself the life she's known she's always meant to have.  The life of a 'Bloodslave' is exciting, intoxicating and sensual in multiple ways.  With a few hills to hurdle Michelle and Aaron have to climb to mutually agree on a few concerns but in the end, they know what will happen and who will survive.

In Paris, Aaron's loss has him grieving and fighting his demons daily.  Michelle wants nothing more than to rebuild what they lost in hopes of finding the Aaron she once knew.  With the beast lurking within, the traps around every corner, it gets harder and harder to control his reactions but will Michelle be able to reach Aaron before it's too late?

In Bloodslave, we get a glimpse into the other side, a new world Travis has built for us to explore.  His unique writing style and amazing written characters come to life and there's no turning back.  Hope's life laid out on the line, the connection is great.  The story remarkable, the sensual scenes hot and dirty, the life altering situations and circumstances keep the pages turning.  When there's nothing left will there be anything to bring Hope back with the lifeline she has to hold on to?

Her mother named her Esperanza Salvación - Hope for Salvation. But when a girl works as an escort for Colombian cartel in the ghettos of Spanish Harlem, there wasn’t much hope, or salvation.

Hope’s telepathic ability keeps her a step ahead of ruin, but her unusual gift attracts the attention of a psychotic vampire bitch. Trapped in a Manhattan penthouse with the psycho, she thought she was dead meat.

Her survival lies in the hands of Vampire Master Enrique. He seems to respect her, perhaps even care. As a measure of protection, he makes her his personal Bloodslave. Helplessly addicted to his bite, Enrique rules her every moment. As always, Hope must adapt to survive.

Swept into the decadent nightlife of Manhattan's elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience? Is she nothing more than a concubine desperate to satisfy his nightly demands for blood and sex?

And forever in the background is the fear that one day the cartel boss she abandoned will hunt her down to collect on old debts.
