"caught in the middle of a vampire and werewolf war"

Kathy McKenna is a 23 year old who decides that with the vampire and werewolf war going on she needs to move to the small, mid-western town of Oak Hollow, a supposedly neutral territory, to get away from it all. She decides to settle down in the quaint town and open up a bookstore and live the quiet life. Only problem is she ends up walking smack dab in the middle of it all.

Raphael Cordova is a vampire, but not just any vampire. The offspring of a vampire father and mortal mother, he's doesn't have the drawbacks of "turned" vampires. Rafe is also the godson to the most ancient living vamp and is the appointed leader of the North American Vampires. On the night that Rafe enters the town's new bookstore, he knows that he has found his soul mate. Convinced that no good could possibly come from their union, he vows to keep away form the lovely Kathy. Unfortunately that is easier said than done.

To make matters worse, Hunters have come to Oak Hollow and soon Kathy, Rafe, and some of their friends find themselves unwilling guinea pigs in the Hunter's efforts to cure the world of vampires and werewolves.

As Rafe and Kathy continue in their relationship to know one another better, Rafe soon finds himself helplessly in love with Kathy. Kathy, on the other hand, has a hard time reconciling her love for Rafe with the fact that he's a vampire. This is the only part of the story that I wasn't wild about. I wanted to like Kathy, but at times I found her whiny and na´ve. Even when the story ends, I don't ever get the feeling that Kathy ever really accepts Rafe's vampirism. All in all, this wasn't a bad book at all -- it had a solid storyline, but I personally just couldn't get into the heroine.

Kathy McKenna was sure that the little Midwestern town of Oak Hollow would be isolated enough for safety, but the moment the black-clad stranger walked into her bookstore, she knew she was wrong. Raphael Cordova exudes smouldering power, and his sensual touch draws Kathy into a world of limitless pleasure and unimaginable dangers.Oak Hollow was supposed to be neutral territory for supernatural beings. Instead it has become home to an evil force determined to destroy them - and kill any mortal that gets in the way. As leader of the North American vampires, Raphael has always put duty first, but then, no woman has ever enthralled him the way Kathy does. And as the enemy's terrifying plan is revealed, Raphael's desire could be a fatal distraction for all his kind, and for the woman he has sworn to love forever...
