REVIEW

"Fabulous romantic conflict and conflict in the Vampire community"

It's a great book. It's not a romance per se, in that the hero and heroine are already together and in the middle of a relationship at the beginning of the book. So you don't get any of that meeting-and-getting-to-know-you-and-falling-in-love stuff that makes up the bulk of a romance. What you do get, however, is a fabulous romantic conflict, because the hero and heroine's relationship can't progress any further -- if he turns her into a vampire, they can no longer have a relationship, and he can't be as intimate as she'd like because he fears if he does he might turn her into a vampire -- unless one or both of them radically alter their world views. In the meantime, they have to hunt down a rogue vampire, recover a Hollywood tell-all vampire screenplay, and try to keep a lid on the seething, simmering anger, resentment, and passion of the Los Angeles vampire community.

SUMMARY

No vampire dares hunt without official sanction of the Enforcer - to do so means death. No exceptions, but it's been a long, long time since the last hunt. The natives, as they say, are getting restless. Selim, the Enforcer, is called in to approve a hunt. The prey, of course, are human. Selim job is keeping the clans under control while deciding how many will be hunted, when, where, and by whom.

No one is going to be happy with his decision.

If that isn't enough challenge, Selim has other problems. There are those who resent his authority and would love to see him replaced. One of his clan leaders has a half human child that other clans want dead. Then there's the movie script being written with him as the lead vampire. Not only is this breaking a cardinal rule, it could mean the destruction of their race. Selim must show absolute power and strength at all times or his life could be forfeit. Having a human female who's also psychic as a lover isn't always the bonus you would think. It all works out in the end - sort of. Since this is the first book in a series you can expect some strings left untied.
