Deadly Encounters of the Supernatural Kind

Beauregard Channing is a vampire.  For the past 400 years he has been working on finding magical items.  Items that if in the wrong hands can cause a lot of destruction and loss of lives.  Beau has lost all interest in having any type of relationship with humans.  That is until his newest assignment.  He has been sent to Bergen County, New Jersey.  He is looking for one Mr. Bradley Hildeband.  Beau is surprised to learn that there is no Mr. Heldeband but there is a Ms. Bradley Hildeband.  Bradley is just your average college student.  When she gets a call from a man wanting to buy her late grandmothers necklace, she turns him down flat.  Then Beau shows up wanting the necklace and he tries to charm it out of her but that doesn't work either.  When Beau tells Bradley what is so special about the necklace and that some very bad people also want it, she does not believe him.   But when the bad guys show up on her doorstep and the necklace is taken, she is forced to believe what Beau has been telling her.   Now she is forced to go the Beau for help.  Beau has to keep Bradley safe when they team up to get the necklace back from the bad guys before innocent lives are lost.

Ms. Hosack gives us a very good twist on vampire romance in that our vampire hero wants to protect humans and not just as a food source. I found Deadly Encounters of the Supernatural Kind to be very entertaining. This is the first story I’ve read by Ms. Hosack and I very much look forward to reading more by this fascinating author. Readers keep your eyes open for more by her.

Book Blurb for Deadly Encounters of the Supernatural Kind

Beauregard Channing has devoted the past four hundred years to tracking down items that, if put in the wrong hands, have the ability to cause destruction and damage to innocent lives. Though sworn to defend mortals, Beau feels removed and detached from humankind. He loses all desire for personal interaction with mortals until his next target, Bradley Hildebrand, turns out to be the one woman he cannot seem to get off his mind.

Against his better judgment, Beau attempts to charm his way into Bradley’s heart while simultaneously trying to coax her into giving him the relic he seeks before the wrong people discover its location. Bradley immediately annihilates Beau’s plan of a peaceful compromise by refusing to believe that a world of vampires and supernatural creatures could exist without her knowledge.

While he is attempting to make Bradley see reason, Beau’s worst fear comes true. A group that intends nothing but devastation to those around them discovers the location of Bradley and her artifact. After an attack that leaves her lucky to be alive, the men take off with the widely sought after historical object. Now it is up to Bradley, Beau, and

Bradley’s slightly unorthodox and eccentric best friend Camden to track down the artifact and save innocent lives from falling victim to its powers. If the three of them don’t end up killing each other, Beau just might be able to persuade Bradley to fall in love with him.
