I loved this vampire book.

When we're first introduced to Gunner the vamp, his in a predicament and there seems no way out. Luckily he has a friend who believes in him

Lee and Imogens characters are quite light to begin with and draw you into their happy friendship.

Imogen is human, who's best mate happens to be a shifter, and his an alpha at that, not your normal alpha type but his fab. Lee thinks of Imogen as his extra sister, they're both about to have their lives take a turn, for the better b

Imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Gunner a vampire and regulator with The Directive, is granted 30 days to find the true killer and prove his innocent or suffer the consequences. With time running out the last thing he needs is a distraction in the form of his Bloodmate. But when the Thirst hits him the only thing Gunner can think about is the sweet smell and taste of his fated mate, Imogen.
In a world of blood, fangs and shifters Imogen is a gentle soul who is simply enjoying life and ho

Gunner is an awesome read, I loved the storyline.
I like that Gunners not a day walker giving him a vulnerability but in no way does he come across as weak.
The subjufuge, the danger within and the intensity in and out the bedroom flows throughout the book, as does Gunners tenderness towards Imogen and the bond between the characters regardless of species. Acceptance for who or what you are is embraced and there was even a reference to the ‘Hunger’ from another series (if you haven’t read A Wolfs

This is my first book by the author and it won't be my last. I am loving this series so far. The vampire thirst stories are great. This book had me hooked from the start.

I love how you not only get Gunner and Imogen's story but you get some of Lee and Piper's aswell.

This is a fantabulous ebook and you actually get more than one story. The main story of Gunnar, a Vampire who is a Regulator for the Directive, who is falsely accused of murder and sentenced to 500 yrs. in jail. Due to the efforts of his friend and lawyer, Blaine, (who knew he was innocent) he was released on probation for 1 month to find out who really did it. Gunnar is suddenly hit with a bad case of the Thirst. He finds his Bloodmate, Imogen, who is a human, and she is kidnapped which puts Gu ...more

Gunner was once one of the finest operatives the Directive had. But when he came to close to uncovering the traitors embedded within the Directive itself, he was framed for murder. Now isolated from the other prisoners, ostracised by former friends and allies, he only has himself and his best friend to rely on.

Blaine manages to strike a deal with Jana to get Gunner released to track down the traitors and topple the proposed coup of the Directive hierarchy before it can get off the ground. But a

Excellent Story

I have falling in love with these Thirst stories and Elaine Barris has not disappointed once again. Not only do you get one love connection you get two. Of course when you start getting into the story you feel like Lee's story seems to overtake Gunner's story, but it all comes together in the end.

I love how all the characters seem to be connected to each other and the storyline continues and they even catch a bad guy in the process. I have to admit I was surprised to see who the b

Vampire Gunner has been framed and is currently in prison and sentenced to a 500 year stay. In a miracle he is given bail for 1 month to be able to prove his innocence - however those plans go out of the window when he is stuck by the legendary Thirst. Human Imogen is gentle and yet has an underlying strength of character. She seems to be the perfect companion to Gunner's world of guns and blood. Upon meeting her connection to Gunner seems immediate and promises a great future for them both. How ...more

This series just gets better and better.

What do you do when you get sentenced to 500 years for a crime he didn’t commit? How do you prove your innocence when no one will listen?
Thank goodness for Gunner’s attorney, Blaine, for believing he wasn’t guilt of these horrible crimes and did everything in his power to get him set free.
Imogen loved her little mobile dog grooming business and wouldn’t give it up for anything. She was just squeeze in by, but with the help of her friend Lee, She has her

Talk about suspense and thrills! Gunner is accused for a crime he didn't commit and to top it off they abduct his bloodmate. Time is of the essence and it is running out for Gunner as he and his team of recruits try to hold off an insurrection. The story is engaging and draws you in having you wanting to get your hands on the bad guys and cheer on Gunner and Imogene. I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Poor Gunner! Set up, framed and totally not given the chance to prove it wasn't him.

Suddenly someone higher up notices that things are not all as they seem in District 7. Gunner is given a chance to prove it wasn't him and that he was framed...but he is only given a month to do it!

Friends jump to help him, although when Lee is struck by the Thirst it definitely makes for entertaining reading! I love how Lee and Piper's stoey runs along so nicely with Gunner's.

So when Gunner is hit with a cravin

OMG I loved this book and this is the story of Gunner and Immogen and also Lee and Piper.

I love vampire stories and this one is up there with the best of them, sorry but I’m not giving any spoilers because this book is just too good to give bits and pieces of the story.

Gunner A Vampire's Thirst is a fast-paced, super-natural, erotic suspense by Elaine Barris. It has a well developed plot and characters that jump off the page. It's really two books in one! This book is also an emotional thrill ride that is superbly written. The twist and turns well have you guessing til the very end!

"Because you're mine, he replied. "Your heart recognizes its, mate. Imogen. Like you said, we were intended to be made one." The thirst rose and slammed him with vengeance.

How do I love this...let me count the ways..

Oh these Vampire's thirst stories are so good! Ms. Barris has done it again with this Vampire and his Thirst. Gunner worked for the Directive and still was sentenced to 500 year's for a crime he didn't commit! Thank goodness he's got great friends and friends of friends! While trying to clear his name he's hit by the Thirst! The extra story of Lee the Alpha was a extra bonus! Definitely a great read!

Okay, first off... WOW... this one packs a wallop starting right up front with the prologue. The Directive has been compromised. There’s corruption in the upper echelon. Someone’s planning a coup, and he’s gained followers by promising a new regime where vampires will not only walk among the humans, but they will be their rulers!
Gunner is a vampire and a regulator with The Directive. His best friend Blaine is a wolf shifter and a lawyer. Together they’re going to gather proof and bring it to Ja

Lots of intrigue with shifters and vampires. This one had meet rooting for Gunner from the start. He’s one gorgeous and dangerous vampire. I love that the story brings in several characters and we actually get to see the Thirst/Hunger on more than one male. Some fighting, detective work and hot scenes. A definite read for any paranormal romance reader.

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of the book.

I absolutely loved Gunner and Imogen. Imogen is so sweet and just wants someone to love her. Like all us girls do. Gunner just has some terrible luck. I highly recommend this book.

You get a story and a half with this one! Not only do you get Gunner and Imogen, but also Lee and Piper. Love the inclusion of the Wolf's Hunger in this Vampire's Thirst tale. The characters were compelling and their stories and histories interwoven to make the plot even better. Gunner was investigating a possible traitor in the Directive and in the process gets sent to jail as part of a bigger conspiracy.
