Gabrial Ferrar is a House Marshal, an enforcer of the laws of his people. But when his investigation into missing young girls lead him to a dark alley his path crosses with an incredible crossbreed whose blood promises him a lifetime of pleasure he’s willing to sacrifice everything to gain. Yet her past may be the key to stopping a deranged killer from taking the life of another little girl – but only if he can gain her trust before time runs out.

Kel Sheridan works for a private agency called Incog, a vigilante organization that deals with the dark underbelly of the Arcane. While investigating a local blood ring she finds herself uncontrollably drawn to a stranger and in the time it takes to press her lips to his, he’s made her his blood mate. Kel is furious, especially when she discovers he is a son of the House that turned her out on the streets as a child for not being of pure blood. When another little girl disappears she finds herself needing the strength of the unwanted blood bond between them to face the truth of her past to catch their killer.

Kel Sheridan is a half breed, and proud of it. During her latest investigation, she crosses paths with an enforcer from one of the Sanguen houses, the House of Farrar. In fact, Gabrial Farrar is House Marshal, and next in line to lead.

When his case and Kel’s intersect, he kisses her, and makes her his bloodmate. Can Kel break the blood bond she and Gabrial now share? When it becomes clear that her case and Gabe’s are on and the same, can she find a way to work with him? Can Kel and Gabe bring the guilty party to justice and survive long enough to complete their bond?

This is so much more than your ordinary vampire romance. Ms. Vyne has created a society where bloodlines matter, but where love and passion will find a way past prejudice and bigotry.

Kel has many prejudices against the Sanguen race, even though she is half Sanguen herself. She is strong and loyal, but her past haunts her. That makes her pretty much like any young woman who just wants to belong somewhere. Gabe wants Kel for his mate forever, but has to try and see her side. These two are strong and stubborn, but they slowly work toward middle ground, learning what works and what doesn’t in their relationship.

I loved the way the mystery unfolded, and the surprise of who was the evil vampire in the mix. This is a well written and taut thriller, as well as a really steamy romance. When Gabe and Kel are together, the temperature rises quickly.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes their vampires wickedly hot, their heroines sassy and smart, and their romance hot beyond compare.
