The border town of Crystal Springs has fallen prey to vampires. For those who are unable to leave, they live in fear each day that they'll become the next victim. Archer has been sent by the Bloodhound Guild to help when he crosses paths with a woman who, like himself, has a past she'd like to forget. Grace has worked hard to make people in town think she's a proper lady and schoolteacher but Archer can see past the fake surface. Putting aside her fear the best she can, Grace joins Archer in the search to find out why the vampires have yet to destroy the town and everyone in it.
Grace and Archer were great together because they were able to see the good in each other. Archer is brave for what he does as a Bloodhound, men who are turned into weapons to fight vampires, and Grace is caring in the work she does for those vulnerable still in town. Of course, they each only see the bad they've done but when they're together, they help each other heal and that's what I liked most about them. The intense sex I've come to expect from the series was there are very hot but I think the real connection between them was outside of the bedroom.
It becomes obvious to Archer after arriving in Crystal Springs that the vampires are not just there to feed. They are there because they are looking for something and the race to find out what is on. I found this story to be really interesting and I liked that it wasn't as simple as the vampires wanting to attack just for the sake of killing. That would have been boring and that's something this book is not.
Archer's Lady fits perfectly into a series that has thoroughly entertained me with each release. Archer and Grace really complement each other and I hope this isn't the last we see of them. For the supporting cast, I thought Grace's friend Diana was an instantly fascinating character with a secret that sets her apart from any other woman in the world. I can't wait to see how that affects things in the next book. There was a lot to like in this book and like all the other Moira Rogers' books I've read, I recommend it. This book contains paranormal romance, Wild West and some steampunk elements.
