There is never a dull moment in Theo Bourne’s life.  Still recovering from injuries received in the last conflict with sinister paranormals, Theo is also caught between coyote shifter Carlos and wolf shifter Lloyd. Both men love Theo but go into attack mode when they see each other. Theo wants Carlos and Lloyd but he is aware the three of them can’t have a workable relationship. Then there is the new drama of a deranged vampire, intent on burning masses of people. Theo is the only one who can stop the carnage from spreading. 

Evelyn Shepherd's Event Horizon is the second book in the Theo Bourne series. The story has a tense plot that kept my eyes glued to the pages. The characters are fantastic. Theo is a powerful phantom with a compassionate nevertheless intolerant attitude, especially when dealing with Carlos and Lloyd’s displays of jealousy. Theo and Carlos are lovers who live and work together. Theo and Lloyd want to be lovers, yet Theo shows great restraint in keeping that dream from becoming a reality. The drama is provided by a powerful female vampire who can seduce people with her singing into a catatonic state. Even Theo is not completely immune to her siren song.  

The overall storyline of Event Horizon is an excellent well-paced action saga blended with humor, sensual intimacy as well as snarky “take no prisoners” hero behavior. My only disappointment is that Theo, Carlos and Lloyd did not establish a loving ménage relationship.
