2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Vespers (The Hours of the Night #1)

1) This was an incredible story. I've often said to friends, recommend to me an intelligent, well-written, LGBT book. This is one book I will be recommending to others.  Although the setting of New Orleans and Vampires has been done, it set the stage well for an old vampire who often sprinkles his dialogue with French quips. I also enjoyed the dichotomy of good versus (perceived) evil within the main character, Thaddeus Dupont who is not only gay, but also a monk, and a vampire. The snippets of prayers also added to the overall feel for the story. I will most definitely be watching for more out of this series, and these authors.
2) This was an awesome read. The over-religious Vampire was actually cool. His battle for/against his desire for Sara ((Sarasija actually) made the mystery of the story more exciting to see how it would all play out. Just checked Amazon and two more books in this series are available.

Thaddeus Dupont has had over eighty years to forget...

The vampire spends his nights chanting the Liturgy of the Hours and ruthlessly disciplines those unnatural urges he's vowed never again to indulge. He is at the command of the White Monks, who summon him at will to destroy demons. In return, the monks provide for his sustenance and promise the return of his immortal soul.

Sarasija Mishra's most compelling job qualification might be his type O blood...

The 22-year-old college grad just moved across the country to work for some recluse he can't even find on the internet. Sounds sketchy, but the salary is awesome and he can't afford to be picky. On arrival he discovers a few details his contract neglected to mention, like the alligator-infested swamp, the demon attacks, and the nature of his employer's "special diet" . A smart guy would leave, but after one look into Dupont's mesmerizing eyes, Sarasija can't seem to walk away. Too bad his boss expected "Sara" to be a girl.

Falling in love is hard at any age...

The vampire can't fight his hungers forever, especially since Sara's brought him light, laughter and a very masculine heat. After yielding to temptation, Thaddeus must make a choice. Killing demons may save his soul, but keeping the faith will cost him his heart.
