"paranormal romance mixed with suspense and intrigue"

Dept 57 is back and has a problem; someone is leaking information about it to a different branch of the CIA. In order to find out who is leaking the information Cristos, sends in Andreas undercover. While on his mission Andreas Constant must play the part of the office wolf and slacker in order to get close to everyone at the DIB.

From the beginning Andreas is attracted to Roz Templeton and saves her for last. When he finally gets to her, he finds out that she is a vampire too. Roz has also been working undercover in the DIB for her vampire family, to find out who captured, tortured and killed two of her family members last year. Not sure what to do since his duty and his body are saying two different things; Andreas does not let Roz know he is a vampire also.

Things take a turn when the head of the DIB sends Roz to Dept 57 to spy on them, and has Andreas pose as her live- in boyfriend. At first neither of them are too happy with the situation, until they are left alone together. It becomes evident that there is some major chemistry between the two that neither can deny and things become super hot.

Rubies of Fire is the third book in the Dept 57 series, but can be read as a stand alone. Once you read it though, you will want to go back and read them all! (1 - Jewel of the Dragon 2 - A Griffin's Treasure) Lynne Connolly has created a very diverse set of characters that is sure to make anyone who loves paranormal romance mixed with suspense and intrigue, a fan.

The agents of Department 57 protect man from Talent and Talent from man…

When Department 57 suspects someone is leaking information to another CIA department, Cristos sends Andreas Constant in. Vampire and full-time field agent for the CIA, Andreas’s only loyalty is to the job. Until he sets eyes on sexy Roz Templeton. Posing as the office wolf, Andreas is beginning to hate this assignment. He hates it even more when he realizes Roz is another vampire. And his number one suspect.

When Roz discovers who killed two members of her family, the culprit will die. Andreas is a distraction. She can’t understand why she’s drawn to him—he’s a sleaze. When she discovers he’s working on the same case and an orphan vampire without family loyalty, she knows she has to find the culprit before Andreas does. When danger strikes, Roz’s life is on the line and only the trust and the passion they've found in each other can save her.
