When Blood Calls

A Shadow Keepers, #1

As a prosecutor, Sara Constantine has seen the worst of people and when she gets a chance to work with an elite group of Homeland Security officials to send monsters to prison, she's immediately takes it up. Sara soon finds out that by monsters, they really do mean monsters. She'd be prosecuting vampires and werewolves and any other thing that comes out to play at night and that have hurt others. Sara thinks she's ready to start until she meets her first case - Lucius (Luke) Dragos. They kind of know each other, as in, they had a sinfully hot one-night stand. And even more upsetting, he's a vampire.

Sara can't reconcile that gentle and demanding lover that she was with that night with the man sitting in front of her in an interrogation room accused of ripping a judge's throat out. Literally. But she doesn't have a choice but to do her best to convict him, even if doing so might send the one man that can make her feel like she's never felt before straight to the guillotine. Literally.

When Blood Calls starts off Beck's new paranormal romantic suspense series and a fabulous start, it is! Sara and Luke have an incredible chemistry together and it's obvious from the get-go. They're both really strong characters and that along with a great bunch of secondary ones that add more depth to the story make for a really entertaining read. I really enjoyed how this story has a bit of everything: romance, paranormal and suspense and it all makes a miasma full of awesome! When Blood Calls is dark, edgy and wickedly hot! With great characters and a plot that will keep you guessing until the end, this book is a great read! I highly recommend it.

Sara Constantine is one of the country’s most tenacious prosecuting attorneys—and she’s just secured a well-earned promotion. At first she’s thrilled. Then she finds out her new job involves prosecuting vampires and werewolves. And nothing prepares Sara for the shock she receives when she meets the first defendant she’ll be trying to put away: Lucius Dragos, the sexy stranger with whom she recently shared an explosive night of ecstasy.

When Lucius Dragos kisses the beautiful woman sitting next to him at the bar, he’s only hoping to blend into the crowd and avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he’s following…and planning to kill. But what starts as a simple kiss to secure his cover ignites into a fierce hunger that leads to an all-consuming passion. Charged with murder, Luke knows Sara will do whatever it takes to see him locked away—unless he can convince her that he’s not the monster she thinks he is. And that might mean making the greatest sacrifice a vampire can make.
