The Nightlife San Antonio is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.

EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can't explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.

She needed to hide. With no memory of even her name, she didn't know from who. She only knew she wasn't safe.

Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her. It isn't long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both…

THE NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO is a non-stop thrill ride through the shadowy borderworld of mafia politics and vampires – and sex.

The Bargain (Steamy)

He wanted to throw her on the bed and bury his cock between her toned thighs. He wanted to see her eyes roll back in her head as he burned off all the insane need she inspired. His dick was so hard that it was slipping out the front of his boxer shorts all on its own, a heat-seeking missile intent on its new target.
But he didn’t want her like this, under these conditions. “You think I’m so hard up for sex that you can sell yourself to me for a place to crash?”
She stepped closer to him, holding his gaze with her freakish unblinking stare. “Don’t you want what I have to offer?” A slight smile quirked her lips, exposing those weird teeth.
His cock jerked free to stand at full attention, listening to her every word. His cock knew she would be warm, ready, probably a tight squeeze, and wanted to take full advantage of her offer.
He took in all of her. Dark tight nipples on small, perky breasts – barely a handful. Slim, tight belly, but just enough curve of hip and thigh to let you know she was indeed a woman. A fitness instructor’s physique. The damn bandages were ruining the whole effect.
She stepped in closer, within reach, and he could not control himself any more. His fingertips traced the milky white curve of her right breast, brushing lightly across her nipple, and up to the tape and bandage.
He grinned. She grinned back with too many teeth. He ripped the bandage off in one smooth pull.
“Pinche cabron!” She flinched, bearing her too long canine teeth in a small growl.
He noted her smooth, native Spanish, and thought to ask her about it later. For the immediate moment, Adrian saw what he expected to see, but it was still very hard to believe. Beneath the flecks of dried, old blood was a fully healed wound, not even a scar. He rubbed his fingers over the flesh, in awe. A bullet had torn a jagged crimson hole in that porcelain flesh three nights ago. Smooth, ivory skin filled his vision, now.
“Goddamn, you’re a fucking vampire.”
She eyed him suspiciously, her hands in the air, as if she would cover herself. Then that fiery spark came into her eyes, and she dropped her hands and lifted her chin in challenge.
He ripped off each of her bandages, none too gently. She gave no more than a slight hiss of noise in protest. Each of her wounds proved the same. Clean away the little crusty specks, and the woman was in top condition.
Adrian knelt, his face inches from her naked pussy, and jerked off the last bandage from her left thigh. It was difficult to keep his attention on her wound, when his cock kept telling him to check out the other parts, but he confirmed that her thigh was the same, fully healed like the rest of her.
He stood and towered over her. Her dark eyes tilted up to search his face for an answer. None of this made any sense whatsoever. He didn’t care. He wanted this crazy woman. Now. He couldn’t even wait for her to shower with antibiotic soap first.
“So this is the deal? I help you hide out from the law, and in exchange, I get …”
Without blinking, without pause, she spoke over the top of him. “Me. All of me. Whatever you want of me.”
Girl drove a hard bargain. But not as hard as his cock.
A sly smile curved his lips and he looked down the smooth, pale curves of her body. “Are you sure you’re up to it? I can be … demanding.”
She licked her lips and reached for his cock, protruding from the front of his boxer shorts. She enveloped him in a solid grip. “I can handle you.”

So, this is my first time reading Travis Luedke's work, and now I'm asking myself why in the hell have I not read anything by him before this? This is a refreshing and greatly entertaining erotic vampire novel. There's blood, sex, racist neighbors, sex, crooked cops, sex, the Mexican mafia, sex, vampires and no surprise, sex!

After spending two tours in the Middle East, Army vet-turned-EMT Adrian is doing his best to prove to himself that he's not the sociopath the military psychiatrist thinks he is, and what better way than to be someone who saves lives instead of taking them? But Adrian gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself helping the young woman he and his partner retrieved from a gang-style shooting--just three days after she had to be resuscitated in the ambulance. He knows it's a bad idea to help her, but he just can't seem to stop himself. And that decision dramatically alters the course of his life.

What I really liked about this definitely unconventional romance is that it's more gritty and raw; there's plenty of violence, that while not extremely graphic, the way the words flow it's still easy enough to get a mental image of the carnage as it happens (there's scene with La Reina and a throat that has pretty much put me off of consuming any kind of meat for a while). But for me, the best part were the sex scenes, simply because they're written like how a sex scene should be told: raw and uncut, without the sappy, crappy poetic words that I'm pretty sure no one ever really says when they're doing the horizontal tango.

Now that I know the error of my ways in regards to Travis Luedke's stories, I will take appropriate actions to remedy the situation and read his books!

Book provided in exchange for honest review.


  1. This is one of my favorite reviews yet.

    This is the quote that does it for me:

    "But for me, the best part were the sex scenes, simply because they're written like how a sex scene should be told: raw and uncut, without the sappy, crappy poetic words that I'm pretty sure no one ever really says when they're doing the horizontal tango."

    Thanks for a wonderful blog post and review. Much appreciated.
