Review by Cholla

The Council Of Vampyre refuses to believe one of their kind would willingly turn humans into monsters. Three men share the task of saving humanity.

Half sympath, full vampyre and certified assassin for the Alliance of Human Protection Services, Rayan Slade is called to train the new blood — including the only woman he has ever loved.

When Nick Cain rescues vampyre Valentina Ash it’s hard to focus on the fact he is human, and the enemy. But the hunger that envelops them both may lead to ultimate destruction. Jakob Grey must apprehend a dangerously beautiful vampyre killer — and his lover from a life long past. Her arousal teases his senses as their clash of swords turns into a battle of desire, but the hunt for ancient blood threatens to break the bond between the hunter and vampyre.

Book 1: URBAN FANTASY:
Over a century ago, Hanako — a descendant of the Hunters — fell in love with a vampyre. Over a century ago, Hanako — too weak to kill the one she loved — poisoned her lover’s blood. Over a century ago, Hanako — tricked into mixing vampyre and Hunter blood — had lost her burn, her strength, her courage. She lives today, fighting for duty she had sworn to uphold, killing vampyres who prey on human blood; her sword and burning poison as her only allies.

Amidst a fragile peace among the vampyres and humans, Jakob Grey must apprehend a vampyre killer. The woman he must stop is dangerously beautiful — and his lover from a life long past. The cherry blossom scent of her arousal teases his senses as their clash of swords turns into a battle of desire. But as forgotten love blooms once again, a hunt for ancient blood threatens to break the bond between the Hunter and vampyre.

The age old battle between hunter and hunted comes alive in this first story in the Urban Series by Fiona Jayde. What happens when a vampyre loves a hunter? How does a hunter reconcile her feelings for a vampyre? This erotic urban fantasy keeps you on the edge of your seat with constant action and steamy love scenes. Hanako wars with her heart and her past, trying to defeat an evil that has haunted her. I love the unique way she hunts her vampyres – by poisoning them with her tainted blood. Jakob Grey – torn between keeping the peace and following his heart, is a truly conflicted vampyre. Should he kill the one he loves because it’s his duty or take her away and make love to her?

Book 2: URBAN LEGEND:

The Council Of Vampyre refuses to believe one of their kind would willingly turn humans into monsters. They will not update the vaccine that can prevent this turning, nor will they allow humans to access the raw components so they can modify the chemical bonds themselves.

Nick Cain has pushed his body to superhuman strength ever since he was attacked and nearly drained by an amorous female vampire. When he is tasked to physically hack into a lab in San Francisco, he doesn’t expect to rescue the lushly built Vampyre keeper of the vaccine, nor does he except his sharp attraction to her while they race across the state.

Vampyre Valentina Ash has not been raised to trust a human. The man who rescues her floods her senses – and with her yearly need rising, it’s hard to focus that he is still human, that he cannot be trusted, that he’s the enemy. And as he saves her from death and blood dust, the hunger that envelopes them both may lead them to the ultimate destruction.

Hunter and Hunted working together? Impossible! Not so for Ash and Valentina. Neither trusts the other, but are forced to co-operate in order to discover how and why someone is turning humans into vampiric monsters. Not counting on their strong attraction to one another, they attempt to deny the truth by covering it with harsh words and physical action. But once Ash puts his life on the line to save Valentina, will she learn to finally trust him? What will it take for him to acknowledge the obvious and cut her some slack? Another fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat novel from Fiona Jayde, Urban Legend is a great way to get your heart pounding. From the first action scene to the last steamy moment of sex, you will be devouring every word.

Book 3: URBAN MYTH:

As peace between humans and vampyre crumbles, Taina Bates trains to become one of the Hunters. Her strength increases with each day, the scrapes and bruises like badges of courage. The drive to fight rages inside her.

Rayan Slade — half sympath, full vampyre and certified assassin for the Alliance of Human Protection Services, is called to train the new blood — SEALs, Green Berets and one lone female. Except the female is the only woman he has ever loved, the one he’d left years ago when the cravings became unbearable, when he feared draining her in his need for the energy that fed him.

As Tania strives to prove herself to her ex, Rayan, he strives to protect her now more than ever. She is hell bent on showing him what he’s lost and that she’s past needing his protection. His only desire is to get her back and make her understand his leaving wasn’t his choice. This very powerful and emotionally charged story draws you in and holds you as you watch the battle of wills, and desire, play out. Intense encounters between Tania and Rayan take you to the peak and the superb action scenes hold you on the edge. Everything about Urban Myth held me captive from beginning to end, my favorite of the three!
