This world is awesome. Ripper is set is the same world as Ms Blake’s Thieves series with all of those characters playing some sort of role in this new series. I wasn’t sure she could duplicate the interest/addiction/whatever you want to call it until I found myself up late reading and not wanting to stop! Yep, I was hooked. Kelsey is an awesome character who isn’t sure she likes herself and is sure she doesn’t want to be bothered with other people, even her brothers. The rest of the characters are as varied and complex as you’d ever want. Expect to see all of the characters for the previous series and while you don’t need to read it to enjoy this one, I’d read it anyway. Terrific world building, complex plot and intriguing characters make this fantasy a must read. Oh, and how could I forget. The romantic element is extremely well done including all the sex scenes! Hot paranormals make this fantasy material for your fantasies.
Becoming a PI seemed to keep Kelsey busy, or at least somewhat employed which was great until she actually took a paranormal case. It’s not that she wanted to take it but someone had to help the prey shifters. Soon, Kelsey finds herself attracted to two men, learning that she isn’t who she thought she was and in a case that may change her life forever. Choices will have to be made. Will she make the right ones, or will she be forced to make choices she doesn’t want? Secrets will be revealed as Kelsey discovers what happens when a doe shifter plays with vampires.
A New Heroine Rises...
Kelsey Atwood is a private detective with a problem. She came from a family of hunters, growing up on the wrong side of the supernatural world. Tracking down bail jumpers and deadbeat dads may not make her a lot of friends, but it’s a lot safer than the life she turned her back on. She was hoping to escape from the nightmares of her past, but her latest case has brought them right back to her door.
A young woman has gone missing, and she didn’t go willingly. When Kelsey discovers that the girl is actually a shifter, she knows she should drop the case and walk away. But this shifter was a sweet kid, and she’s in serious trouble. More females are missing and the evidence points to a legendary killer. Bodies are piling up, and her case is becoming center stage for a conflict that could shatter the fragile peace between wolves and vampires.
As the hunt intensifies, she finds herself trapped between two men—Gray, a magnetic half-demon lawman, and the ancient vampire Marcus Vorenus. Both men call to her, but when a shocking secret about Kelsey’s family is revealed, it could ruin them all. To stop the killer, she will have to embrace the truth about who—and what—she truly is.
