Okay, I’m hooked – book crack strikes again!
As the synopsis tells us – Tambra Ellis’s world is about to be turned upside down when she is attacked by a wolfman, not believing that it was real, she resigns herself to the fact that she will probably die from the incident, even if a mysterious stranger has just done away with her attacker as she fades to black. It is only when she awakens days later that she meets her mysterious stranger – Marcus Valerian – and he’s about to rock her world i

Kicking Ass Exciting!

I totally loved it, fast paced, sizzling hot, and visually creative. The author’s smooth writing had me hooked as she made the scenes come alive on the page. With a kick ass and feisty female police officer named Tambra, a sexy vampire enforcer named Marcus, and a new world of species called the Dark Breed, the story totally sucked me into a new addiction of wanting more of this series.

I loved the interaction between all the characters and the sexual attraction between Tambr

3.5 stars. Starts off well with a lot of action and an intriguing plot. It has a nice mix of action, suspense, twists, and steamy romance. The story and the characters are interesting, but the pacing and story development lags a bit towards the end. Should be an interesting series with action and different types of paranormal characters.

Blurb: Tambra Ellis has just had her world turned upside down. Surviving a bite from a Lycan, attracted to one hot vampire and now she has to look forward to turning into something from some bad werewolf movie.

Marcus Valerian has enough on his plate without the added complication of Tambra Ellis. Fiery and independent? Sure. Beautiful with a body made for sin? Oh Yeah. She's also a human cop. Tambra is everything he needs to stay away from.

This was a quick read for me as the author immediately set the stage with skin-tingling, hair-raising eeriness. I genuinely like Tambra. She is a Sassy, self-reliant heroine who does not come across as too brash or sarcastic. I was drawn to her loyalty and dedication to duty. I would have liked to have felt a bit more of the unique flavor of Las Vegas as it is the backdrop for this adventure. Still, there were a few unexpected twists as the story unfolded which added to its allure. This is the f ...more
Secretly Reading
This is a good first book in a new paranormal series. I liked the world building as it was imaginative and compelling. The secondary characters are outstanding and will make me read their stories. However, the couple quickly jumps to the I-love-you stage without much emotional bonding. I only noted this in passing while speeding through this otherwise excellent book.
