In the latest New York Times bestselling Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series, Anita's life is more complicated than ever, as she is caught between her obligations to the living and the undead. A vampire serial killer who preys on strippers is on the loose. Called in to consult on the case, Anita fears her judgment may be clouded by a conflict of interest. For she is, after all, the consort of Jean-Claude, the ever-intoxicating Master Vampire of the City. Surrounded by suspicion, overwhelmed by her attempts to control the primal lusts that continue to wrack her, Anita does something unprecedented: she calls for help.
Book #18 was Incubus Dreams, the 12th book in Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series.
I thought I was done with Ms. Hamilton for a while, then I realized that I got this for Christmas. I had to track it down, it wasn’t where it was supposed to be! Same complaint still applies. Somewhere along the way she started to sacrifice plot for a lot of sex. I miss the plot! Please, tone down the sex and give us some story!
