Delilah Street, paranormal investigator, has been hired by four different clients to discover the identity of the male half of an two embracing skeletons found in the park.  She’s already discovered that the female half is the daughter of the werewolf mob and barely survived when that mob decided to hunt her.

With the help of her lover, Ric Montoya, Delilah escaped, but this does little to prepare her for her the Egyptian evil lying in underground Las Vegas, waiting for the right moment to strike.

Once again Carole Nelson Douglas has done a great job making me interested in old movies, vintage clothes and the possibilities that come with a wonderful imagination.

Her cast of zombies, vampires, demons, werecreatures, humans, and the unknown are interesting and exciting. They are beautifully detailed and given lively dialogues, but most importantly all play a great role.A character in itself is Delilah’s familiar, the lock of hair Snow gave her in book one. It is constantly morphing into something new, fashionable and at times protective.

The book is all about a mystery, but it plays up the paranormal romance brewing between Delilah and Ric and the potential sexual pull between Snow and Delilah.

Brimstone Kiss has its share of mind blowing foreplay and surprises. Some of the story-lines  from book one, Dancing with Werewolves, are answered, while others are explored and left to linger for the next installment in the Delilah Street: Paranormal Investigator.

One of my favorite parts of the story is the way Ms. Douglas humanizes Delilah by making her menstruate and get cramps. Yeah, I know it’s kinda gross, but how many books take the time to bring up the inconvenience of Mother Nature in detail, along with the embarrassment of having an attractive man smell you because of it. (No, I’m not talking about the funky smell that sometimes accompanies bloody pads.)

The story ends like a great action packed movie. It’s bloody, emotional and has a cliff-hanger ending guaranteed to bring you back.
