***Semi-finalist--The Kindle Book Review, Best Indie Books of 2012The first book in the best-selling Elemental Mysteries series by Elizabeth Hunter.***"Elemental Mysteries has turned into one of the best paranormal series I've read this year. It's sharp, elegant, clever, evenly paced without dragging its feet, and at the same time emotionally intense."--Nocturnal Book Reviews~~~   No secret stays hidden forever.   A phone call from an old friend sets mysterious book researcher Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery that has eluded him for centuries.  Little does he suspect a young librarian holds the key to an ancient secret, nor could he expect the danger Beatrice De Novo would attract.     Now both will follow a twisted maze leading from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a passion that could destroy them both.~~~A Hidden Fire (Elemental Mysteries Book One)This Same Earth (Elemental Mysteries Book Two)The Force of Wind (Elemental Mysteries Book Three)A Fall of Water (Elemental Mysteries Book Four)~~~Now available...Building From Ashes (Elemental World Book One)Waterlocked (An Elemental World Novella)And coming SUMMER 2013Blood and Sand (Elemental World Book Two) ~~~From A Hidden Fire..."Tell the truth, Giovanni Vecchio." A mischievous look came to her eye. "You have a butler, a cool car, and I've only ever seen you at night..."He froze, tension suddenly evident in the set of his shoulders. Beatrice leaned closer and whispered, "You're Batman, aren't you?"His mouth dropped open in surprise before the grin overtook his face. She smiled back at him, chuckling until he joined in. Soon, they were both laughing."You looked so serious for a second! What did you think I was going tosay? A spy? Vampire? Hired killer?"He shook his head in amusement. "You're confounding. No, I was just surprised you guessed. I am, in fact, Batman. I would appreciate your discretion."She nodded with a smirk, and took another sip of the coffee he'd brought her. It had just a touch of cream, exactly the way she liked it. "Sure you are. I'm a skeptic until I see the rubber suit. You're not fooling me."He looked at her, smiling mischievously. "You really want to see me in a rubber suit?"

3.5 A Hidden Fire by Elizabeth Hunter
This was a good read far surpassed my expectations. I like how Hunter created her vampires. Not entirely unique but very well thought out and their history is nicely added to the story bit by bit. I really like how she kept it sexy but not smutty. The two main characters are good together, I do wish...

Dr. Giovanni Vecchio is a vampire and a rare book dealer. Beatrice De Novo or as she prefers "B," is an information sciences major with plans to be a librarian. Through individuals in their past, their present is mingled. As is usually the case, Gio is an older vampire, wise in the way of the world....

4.0 Review: A Hidden Fire (Elemental Series #1) by Elizabeth Hunter
Anyone with the name Dr. Giovanni Vecchio will start to peak my interest. How could a name like that not be interesting? Well, A Hidden Fire doesn't disappoint. Add to the hot name a personality that men should kill for, and he's wicked smart? I love books, they make even the most impossible dreams ...

4.5 Great book, what a ride!
I so liked this! Interesting and realistic characters and behaviour - banter and humor, action and suspense and so on. Two little things that weren't great: The take on vampires was far away from original, actually more like sticking to most tropes as close as possible. Also the whole "book hunt...

2.0 A Hidden Fire
This book took me a while to get through. First off - it's boring! I don't think anything actually happened until the end of the book. I felt like the whole book they were sitting in the library studying and talking. The back and forth banter between B and Giovanni reminded me of how high schoolers ...
