It’s never a good idea to date your prey…
Xandra had a thing about vampires—like not dating one. Ever. But now that she’s on the hunt for the mastermind behind a newly formed vampire army, she’s sucking it up and dating every vamp in her little black book. Her prime suspect: Dante. Cop, vampire—and drop-dead gorgeous.
As the police force’s vampire liaison officer, Dante is no stranger to crime. Feral vampires are attacking in droves, and he’s hell-bent on finding out who’s responsible before the backlash robs them all of their hard-won rights. His number one suspect: Xandra. Hunter, smartass—and sexy as sin.
No one is more surprised than Xandra when Dante shows up as her date. Her cover is not all that’s blown during their mutual interrogation. Sparks of attraction fly—right before an attack leaves her gravely injured. With no choice but to inoculate her with his blood, Dante has more questions than ever before. Like who wants her silenced.
As they race to uncover a long-buried secret, Xandra realizes she can trust no one. Not even Dante. Especially since his blood is giving her unpredictable side effects.
Special Agent Xandra Wheeler has just been reassigned. Now instead of hunting vampires…she must date them! Attempting to infiltrate the local vampire society, which has suddenly spawned new feral hives, Xandra enters her profile at the Mortals Seeking Vamps section of V-date. Only instead of identifying the new possible kingpin in the vampire underworld, Xandra meets Dante, the gorgeous vampire liaison of the police department. But Dante is hiding something, a secret that not only could threaten her job, but her heart.
Ms. Bedwell-Grime’s writing is both seamless and well edited. Her word choice is witty, spicy and ironic. The sexy dialogue and story is reminiscent of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series. The fast paced story draws the reader in from the beginning and delivers a most satisfying ending.
This is my first story by Ms. Bedwell-Grime, and I know it will not be my last. She is a talented author who seamlessly delivers an ass-kicking story with heart-felt characters and spicy sexual interludes. Don’t miss out on this WONDERFUL read!! Thanks Ms. Bedwell-Grime!
