"He Had Saved Her Life...but could she love him?"
Detective Victoria "Tori" Tyler knew she was in trouble the
minute she found the key on the dead girl's body. The
Scene was owned by a powerful vampire that no one wished to
get on the wrong side of. "Vampiro involvement was one
thing, but The Scene was out of her league. She'd have to
call in some help. She shivered at the thought. Those
walking leeches couldn't be trusted, not one of them, but
going into that club without a dominatore was just plain
asking for it. She was the only unbound human in the city
with knowledge of them. She didn't plan to become one of
their mindless goons anytime soon."
That meant she had to ask Michael for help. Michael who had
killed her fiance Robert (although Robert was trying to
kill Tori at the time) and had saved her life somehow. She
had a dandy scar to show for that. But, somewhere deep
inside, there was a bit of gladness that she had the excuse
to see him again. It had been several years but she had
never forgotten him. Her job depends on finding the
killer but she knows her boss isn't going to like what they
find - she can sense it.
Michael's nightclub was safer than The Scene; even if it
did have Jonas as the entertainment. Jonas, who could sing
any emotion into you he wanted. Jonas was a walking orgasm
waiting to happen but he wasn't in charge - that was
Michael's job. Michael who cared more for Tori than he (or
she) could imagine.
This book was an easy read and a good one. I sort of felt
at the beginning that I was reading part two, not part one,
due to inferences made by the author to past events but it
didn't detract too much and it was a wild ride through
Tori's days looking for a murderer. I will be looking
forward to reading the rest of the series because I know
I'm going to have to read them when they come out!
