Peter is a human who catches the eye of the local master vampire Lucien. Much smex ensues. As their relationship develops, Peter becomes more involved in the coven and local supernatural politics. There is also the odd battle and intrigue abounds with human hunters, werewolves and the vampire ruling body.
Soul Mates has tight world building but with pretty much standard Vamp fair of councils, districts and werewolves in a serving capacity. But it feels fresh and it is cleanly written without too much distracting waffle.
The books are all in 1st person which I quite enjoy and I certainly liked Peter as a character. He is engaging and becoming more hardened as his responsibilities increase and there are things in the 3rd and 4th book you certainly would not have seen him do earlier on. Peter’s also a bit easy and suffers from a well lubed zipper! heh. He reminds me of Anita Blake, minus the bullshit,when it comes to sex and his partners which is all good! The other similarity is the frequency of the lurve. heh. Lane manages to move the story along at a cracking pace and it is incredibly easy to be 100 pages in before you realize it.
