A captivating paranormal romance from NYT & USA Today best-selling author Kym Grosso. Experience the mysterious and alluring world of The Immortals of New Orleans.

After a series of girls are ritualistically murdered on the cold streets of Philadelphia, seasoned detective Sydney Willows is forced to work with sexy, alpha vampire, Kade Issacson. As the case develops, so does Sydney's attraction to her new partner--no matter how hard she to tries to fight it.

Kade, determined to solve the case and mete out justice, is captivated by the independent, fiery detective. While he attempts to protect her from a very real murderer, his concern for the beautiful, but very human detective, grows. She could easily end up dead should she tangle with supernatural forces that are beyond her control.

The investigation leads them into the dark and dangerous underbelly of New Orleans, where together, they search for the perpetrators of the Voodoo killings. When Sydney becomes the target of the killer, she ends up fighting for her life and love in the Big Easy. If she makes it out alive, will she give into the intoxicating desire she feels for Kade?

Kade’s Dark Embrace is the first book in The Immortals of New Orleans series. Although many of my readers prefer reading the series in order, each book is written to be read standalone.


Sydney is supposed to be enjoying a night off when she get's the call that she's needed for work. Upon arriving at the recent victim it's unclear if the case is a human killer or paranormal which determines who gets the case. When she encounters the paranormal investigator she can't deny the attraction to him but she's determined to send him on his way. Kade arrived in town with the assumption that a vampire is the one who's causing trouble. It should be a quick trip stake the vampire and return to New Orleans but he never expected to meet Sydney and she changes the rules. 

I love Sydney she's a tough kick ass detective who's not afraid to square off with the vampires those trying to kill her and she's falling for. I also love Kade he's the kind of vampire you want to sweet you off your feet. They have this instant connection that they both clearly can't deny, and it's just steamy. I love the tough vampire and strong detective combo they just complement each other so well. 

I enjoyed Kade's Dark Embrace so much it's a fast paced action packed steamy romance. I really connected with Sydney she's just adorable and I adored reading her love story with Kade. I ended up devouring the book in just a few short hours it was easy getting drawn into the story. The author does a lovely job of blending the hunt for the killer with the romance between the main characters. 

This is my first book by the author and I'm hooked she has done a beautiful job creating a captivating story that I couldn't put down. I loved the way that the book ended with just enough of a teaser that sets up for the next one. The author has done a beautiful job creating engaging characters and an amazing story. Perfect for fans of paranormal romance. I can't wait to read the rest of the series and see some HEA for the character we've met so far.
