Lost in Time by Melissa De La Cruz

This is the 8th book in the Blue Bloods series.  I have not read any of these but I wasn't too lost.  The author did a great job of explaining what was happening if the reader had not read the previous novels. Mimi goes to Hell to save the man she loves Kingsley. Schuyler and Jack are trying to find Catherine of Sienna and the gate to Paradise. Allegra finds Ben again. Something wrong is going on. Covens are being slaughtered. Can the couples figure out who did what and why to save everyone?

Now I need to go back and read the first one!  This is a different kind of vampire book.

Summary from the author's site:
The stakes have never been higher for the young Blue Bloods of Manhattan. After their brief yet beautiful bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force depart for Egypt, desperate to find the elusive Gate of Promise before Jack must face his twin, Mimi, for a blood trial. A blood trial that only one of them can survive. But everything Schuyler thought she knew about the gate turns out to be a lie, and they soon find themselves ensnared in a deadly battle against the demon-born. Schuyler and Jack take up arms, only to realize that there is a much graver threat simmering in the Kingdom of the Dead.
Meanwhile, determined to save the only vampire she still loves, Mimi has followed Kingsley Martin into Hell. With the help of her new human Conduit, Oliver Hazard-Perry, Mimi makes a bargain with the Queen of the Dead that she may soon regret. When the time comes to choose between love and revenge, both Mimi and Oliver will learn the true meaning of sacrifice.
Confronted by danger, betrayal, and loss at every turn, the Blue Bloods must find the will to fight—and love—another day.
