About the Author
A wine country native, I moved to San Francisco for college just shy of a decade ago to pursue a lifelong interest in film. As I settled into the vibrant city, it quickly became apparent that, while I thought making and editing films was great fun, I lacked cinematic genius. For that reason, my career path quickly changed direction. My next goal was a strange childhood interest, conjured at the dining room table while filling out a form. For some reason, my young self wanted to be an Accountant. Thinking on it now, I wonder how I had any friends. Regardless, it was the direction I finally took.
While I could wrangle numbers with the best of ’em, and even though I wore the crown as the most outspoken, belligerent accountant in the world, my mind got as stuffy as my daily routine. It was here that I dusted off my creative hat and began writing.

About the Author
Vampires, Mafia & Mayhem: The Nightlife San Antonio is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.
All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.
EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can’t explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.
She needed to hide. With no memory of even her name, she didn’t know from who. She only knew she wasn’t safe.
Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her. It isn’t long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both…
STEPHANIE’s Review of The Nightlife San Antonio: ★★★★★
Travis Luedke has managed to break every literary boundary I have set up in my life. Pushing me to read things that would have never interested me. Over a year and a half ago, I picked up my first Travis Luedke novel and it never ceases to amaze me that his books can take something I have no desire to read and turn them into must reads time and time again. I have spent more time with The Nightlife Series than any other series in my collection and this book is the perfect example of why.
Adrian is just trying to get through the motions of being a normal guy. He is an EMT, he is good at it because he doesn’t have the emotional attachment to the people he is saving. But there is something about this one that just screws with his head a little. She is beautiful… and full of holes. There is no way she could possibly survive this. But if she were to live, there are about twenty different ways Adrian would like to work that body. Whatever, she is barely alive. He just needs to get her to a hospital and get on with his day.
She wakes up in a hospital bed; she doesn’t know who she is. She has no idea what happened to her or why. There are things she knows and she has no idea why or what they mean. But she knows one thing, if they keep pumping all of this liquid into her she is never going to survive. She needs liquid, but not the clear kind they serve through tubes in the hospital. She knows she needs to eat. There is only one thing that can quench her thirst and at the first opportunity, she is going to.
Escaping from the hospital and the guards was the easy part… but now what? That’s when she sees him in the parking lot. And let it begin. Adrian wants to do the right thing. But Adrian is dark and twisted all by himself. With an extreme profile left behind from his days in the military, Adrian knows that he is not normal and forming emotional attachments is not his thing. But here she is… she needs his help. So he does what any guy would do… wait, what? Ok, so I don’t know anyone that would take her home and offer her assistance without knowing more than her name. But as it turns out he doesn’t know that either because, she doesn’t know her own name.
But it’s not just her name Adrian doesn’t know. He has no idea what is about to happen in his world. Everything is going to shift and spin out of control. Completely.
Adrian is good at the detachment, but there is something about her that he cannot separate himself from. And for her, she knows she needs him as much as he needs her. Then there’s the sex… oh the sex… Her bite, the hot sex, whew… Together these two seem to be invincible.
When pieces of her past finally become clear to the both of them, things only get more intense. Bring in the drugs, the Mexican mafia and all the power encapsulated in those two things and you just have no idea how things are going to pan out. Power, control, sex, greed, guns, violence and crime…what could possible go wrong?
I can’t relate to a single thing about these characters and for most books this would be a huge issue for me. But with The Nightlife San Antonio, all of my expectations are laid out on the table and then pushed off the edge one by one. This book is thrilling, dangerous and hot. What it is not is a book that would fall into a standardized category.
Travis Luedke takes so many genres and melds them all together into an exciting thrill ride that you can’t escape from. Just when you think things are going to calm down and finally head in one direction, the platform is swept out from under you and you find yourself free-falling into an unknown world where vampires, mafia and sex collide. What you are left with is an amazing read that cannot be put down.
This book is just another example of a novel taking the road less traveled and coming in strong at the finish. This is not a simple story line and it is not a simple romance. The Nightlife San Antonio is dark and dangerous and holy crap, what is going to happen next? It is powerful and gripping and I am pretty sure the sex couldn’t be more intense. I don’t think I will ever tire of reading books by Travis Luedke. He is on my short list of go-to authors. When he hits publish, I devour.
This is a standalone novel and does not have to be read with the other books in the Nightlife Series. But the entire set of Nightlife books is amazing… These books will pull you from everything you thought you liked in a book and set you right down in the middle of everything you didn’t know you liked, but you love!
