"one of the best female leads I have read this year"

Carinian Derrickson is a scientist trying to find a cure for illness and a way for the cells to genetically fight off disease. She has a terror of dying young like the rest of her family and is determined to prevent this, no matter the cost or ethics she breaks. Carinian knows she is getting close if she can just prevent any one in her biotech company from finding out what she's doing. Then Bix walks into her life, does she trust him and give him her heart or run with the fear that has controlled her life?

Jon Bixler is one of the main seekers for the Vampire Council of Ethics, and he's investigating the biotech company and one of the scientists that works there. His plan was to use Carinian to get closer without giving the investigation away. He doesn't count on the attraction or the need to protect the doctor, so does he tell who he really is or continue to hide it from her and risk the best thing to happen to him in his long life?

I loved this book. The heroine is strong, determined and extremely intelligent. She is more than a match for the hero, in fact at times you wonder if he's strong enough for her. I have read other books by TJ Michaels, but none as good as Carinian's Seeker. This book is a keeper that no vampire fan will regret buying. I cannot say enough about how strong and smart Carinian is, she is one of the best female leads I have read this year. I can't wait until the next book in the series comes out; at least I hope there will be another.

She’s his target…and his mate. Aw, hell!

Beautiful genius, Carinian Derrickson, wants to live long enough to date a man from the future generations of spacemen, complete with ray guns and starships. She’s not crazy, she’s just afraid of dying young of some dreaded disease, like all the rest of her family. Her research into gene therapy has shown her the way to extend her life is by emulating traits only before seen in fiction. Vampire fiction. Only the beings that shouldn’t exist are very real indeed.

Unknown to her, there’s a bad boy vampire in the lab next door with a goal quite the opposite of hers. If he has his way, he’ll bring the Vampire Council of Ethics (V.C.O.E.) to its knees.

Jon Bixler is a Seeker for the Council—an assassin and undercover operative in a world of humans. Bix must get close enough to this rogue to find out exactly how he plans to dismantle the Council. And Carinian is just the ticket. But when he meets her, all his vampire common sense flies out the window as his libido leaps off the charts. What’s he going to do now that the woman is in danger and secretly trying to do the impossible?

Bix and Carin can’t deny the combustion of love and lust between them. They accept their mating. But can they stay alive long enough to enjoy it?
