"Riley kicks paranormal butt"

Riley Jenson is part vampire, part werewolf and much more. Working for the Directorate means she can use all her abilities to help people but this new case is very different to anything else she has seen. A series of brutal murders at vampire-human meeting places is never going to be good but the victims are not just being killed, they are beheaded. So Riley is left following the clues and trying to stay out of the way of the strange club owner.

Then another case comes up but Riley is used to multi- tasking when it comes to the job. What she isn't used to is having two lovers after her. Quinn is the cool vampire she is living with while Kye is the werewolf who is up to no good. Trying to juggle both of these men is impossible but at the end of the day she will do what she needs to do to solve the case. Even if it means sleeping with the enemy.

Book seven in the Riley Jenson series sees our favourite vamp/werewolf getting herself into a bit of a love triangle. The series is continuing to build up steam and the background story is keeping me hooked. Bound To Shadows has left me with the need for more and I really hate having to wait for the next book to find out what will happen next.

This newest installment is another great murder mystery mixed with lots of paranormal goodness. The extra sugar coating to this series is that it's based in Australia. Making this something new, different and giving the genre a much appreciated change.

Riley kicks paranormal butt while getting her own kicked right back. She doesn't give up and she doesn't let anyone hurt her and get away with it. Riley is my kind of werewolf/vamp and I am eager to see what else happens to her and how she will come out of it.

If you haven't tried this series already then start at the beginning and enjoy. With seven books already out and the eighth one on the way next year. There is no reason you shouldn't try one of the best paranormal series out there.

Under cover of darkness, nothing is forbidden…

In the darkness, demons come out to play . . .
and someone must bring their sins to light.

Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence.

For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Vampire, Shapeshifter
