It started out like any other stakeout. They were on the trail of a serial killer that just happened to be a vampire. "Bat-boy" was supposed to show up on the beach where Darcy Henry and her team would take him out. Watching him with his lover, Darcy is not prepared for the surge of lust that overwhelmes her. After all, the only good vamp, is a dusted vamp.

Quentin smells Darcy’s arousal and is caught from the first. After being deprived of his night’s pleasure, she owes him. Besides, he hasn’t lived as long as he has only to be dusted. On the trail of his murderous child, Nicky Powell, Quentin is willing to work with the local police to capture him and administer the justice he deserves. What he doesn’t expect is to find his mate- a human. Darcy’s partner, Joe is determined to keep them apart, because he has been waiting a long time for Darcy to finally recognize his love for her. Quentin doesn’t share, now all he needs to do is make sure that Joe knows it.

Darcy is confused. What’s a girl supposed to do? How do you choose between two of the sexiest men you ever met, when one is your partner and best friend and the other is a vampire? Forced to make a decision on whether Joe lives or dies, Darcy knows that things will never be the same, and she can only hope that one day he will forgive her.

With the help of some friends of Quentin’s, Dylan and Emmy O’Hara from My Immortal Knight: All Hallows Heartbreak, Darcy, Quentin and the team take down Nicky and forge friendships and alliances that will hopefully keep the city safe. I fell in love with Quentin from the first book. He is funny, irreverent, arrogant and sexy. Darcy is smart, strong, intelligent and fighting her attraction for two very different men. She definitely has her work cut out for her. Her partner Joe, is a sexy Cuban who has loved her forever but waited too long to tell her. While Darcy and Quentin get their happily ever after, Joe is off to find his, and I can’t wait to read it.
