Angela McCallister has managed to find a fresh take on vampires and breathe new life into the vampire romance genre. I loved this book. Kade is crude, rude and totally hot. He's a bad ass with heart, well sort of. Val has the courage and the spirit needed to bring balance to his world. The passion is searing from the start, even as they both go into deep denial. The plot is complex but so engaging that it's easy to get wrapped up in all the politics, culture and quirks of this fascinating world. This is a different kind of love story and don't look for 'sparkly' vampires because they're not in this book. But there is raw and visceral power here as well as betrayal and sacrifice. Kade has some truly interesting friends and I so hope that the author will be giving them stories too. Highly recommended new author!
Val was working towards making all vampire transformations illegal. She is also working with Vampire Liaison Office to stop a rash of bloody murders. She needs the help of Kade Rollins, the most crude, foul mouthed and violent vampire she's ever met. But there much more going on than either knows and that includes a strong, seductive attraction to each other.
After her ex-husband’s obsession with vampires, Valerie Craig is on a mission to stop transformations. Of all vampires, Kade Rollins is the worst of the worst, but when multiple murders plague Seattle, Val is forced to enlist his aid. Kade’s crude wit and seductive nature attract her like no other, but she can’t ignore his violence toward his human servants, no matter her yearning to forget.
She’s torn when she learns Kade may be behind the murders. Val's worked hard to protect humans from vampires, but the truth surrounding the murders could ignite a bloody battle between their races, one humans are sure to lose. Someone is pulling strings to build a vampire army and spark the war—setting Kade up to kick it off. But if she trusts the vampire prince, she risks her job, her integrity, and her heart if he betrays her as all the men in her life have.
