Riley Jenson works for the directorate, a company that helps police supernatural beings and keep humanity safe. Riley is part vampire and part werewolf, dealing with a soul mate for her wolf half that she despises all while she is in love with a vampire. A new series of murders have begun occurring that she needs to investigate. Women are dying with no sign of trauma and very vampires are being beheaded. She needs to determine if the two types of murders are related and find a way to stop the murders. As her wolf soul mate, Kye Murphy, returns to her life she needs to determine if she can fight the irresistible attraction to her mate, even though she distrusts him. As new information comes to light she realizes that this investigation could kill her, not just because of the dangers with the murders but due to the fact that a werewolf cannot survive without its mate.
As Riley further investigates the murders she learns more of her vampire Quinn, her wolf soul mate Kye and others around her. As Riley needs to deal with horrible tragedy will she survive or will this be the last of Riley?
This is the eighth book in the series and each book gets better as we are drawn more into Riley`s life. As we watch her struggle with her two sides of her soul we can`t help but be drawn further into her world. Ms. Arthur has, yet again, written a fantastic book that is a pleasure to read. I am definitely looking forward to more from Ms. Arthur.
Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence.
For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .
