Moscow Nights (Erin Kingsly, #3) by R.W. Buxton
ABOUT THE BOOK
Erin is desperate to save Gerry from shadowy forces that would do anything to prevent him from fulfilling the prophecy. But when she arrives, he’s with another woman and the worst thing is it’s Tina, his former partner at the FBI.
Can she convince him the threat is real, and not just to him, but Mary his young daughter.
Halfway around the world, ominous figures hiding in the night plan the unthinkable and Gerry is the only one that can stop them. The threat is genuine but will he believe her? Will he believe in the prophecy?
Erin must face her own past, a past she thought was over. It opens old wounds that send her careening on a path of destruction. Can she overcome them in time to save Gerry or will she lose everything because of a deep-rooted hurt that can’t be healed?
This is the third book in the Erin Kingsly series and though it can be read as a standalone, I recommend you read the other two books, Capital Thirst and Beverly Hills Torture to get a full perspective of how Erin and Gerry tick.
It’s no secret I’m not a fan of Erin and Gerry because of their selfish and arrogant personalities, but I am a glutton for punishment when it comes to their story. Gerry is Erin’s chosen one. The man she loves for all time. However, Gerry doesn’t accept Erin for who she is…a vampire, even though he has a destructive urge to constantly protect her. So Gerry the jerk (believe me this is mild compared to what I really think of him) leaves Erin after the vampire battles to end all battles in book 2 and shacks up with his ex-FBI partner, Tina. Yet another character I do not like.
Book 3 explains the prophecy that Erin alludes to in the previous book which has put Gerry and his daughter, Mary, in great danger. Erin rushes them off to her childhood palace in Moscow and they track down a vampire who plans to destroy all humankind and just for good measure Erin’s old nemesis shows up. Sorry, I’m not giving the name up. By the way, I like the lovely descriptions of Moscow and its attractions.
I actually feel sorry for Erin in this one due to Gerry’s hot and cold feelings toward her. Just sh@t or get off the pot, Gerry. He’s so arrogant and never listens to Erin about the dangers that await him. He just charges in with guns blazing thinking he’s invincible. Well, he is a little, but that’s beside the point. The foes are banished in the end and there are some apologies and forgiveness, so those who are rooting for this couple can have some relief.
If you like action and adventure with egocentric vampires and stubborn humans, give this book a try.
Thank you to Mr. Buxton for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

How am I a threat? I didn’t even know about any of this.” Gerry turned his palms upward in his lap.
“First, he knows of you and found you, the reason we had to flee, but he has set himself up as the one to fulfill the prophecy. It’s simple, there can’t be anyone to threaten his position.”
“So, what, we’re going to just meet with him and tell him I’m not who he thinks I am?”
“It’s more complicated than that.” Erin looked over her shoulder at Mary, already asleep despite her claim, curled up in the large tan leather seat. She looked back at Gerry. “You already have a huge base of supporters, and he can’t have that. He wants complete control.”
“But there’s even more. He wants to bring us out of the shadows of night and enslave humanity. He’s perverted the prophecy. His idea of saving our race is to destroy humanity, which would ultimately destroy us. The true savior will save us from destruction, his destruction.”
Gerry blew through his teeth, making a small whistling noise. “So what you’re saying is we have to find this guy and destroy him before he kills me?”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I love a good paranormal read, something about the un-dead haunts the fringes of my mind. Mix in romance, love, loss, and you have a great story.
I voraciously read everything, fiction, and non-fiction but always find myself turning back to the darker stories. I’ve always wanted to write and the dream became a reality with Capital Thirst and the remainder of the Erin Kingsly novels.
I spend most of my days designing and building websites, but my free time is devoted to my wife, family, and cats. Yes, three grown children and three cats. Things can be hectic.
For fun, you might find me driving winding roads with the top down or out photographing nature.
