After a series of girls are ritualistically murdered on the cold streets of Philadelphia, seasoned detective, Sydney Willows, is forced to work with sexy, alpha vampire, Kade Issacson.

Kade, determined to solve the case and mete out justice, is captivated by the independent, fiery detective. As he attempts to protect her from a very real murderer, Kade grows concerned that the beautiful, but very human detective, could easily end up dead should she tangle with supernatural forces that are beyond her control.

Has promise, lacks intensity.
As a huge fan of paranormal stories, especially romance, this one caught my eye. I was highly intrigued by the plot, even though it was not new. However, the author jumped right into the sexual tension and mentioned it on. Every. Single. Page. It was not always appropriate, which the author also seemed to realize but the dialogue was corny and unbelievable, and overall I felt like I was reading the OUTLINE of a book, or a rough draft. This would have been a fantastic read if he characters had, well, stayed in character and interacted with one another in a believable way.
Ridiculous unbelievable story
Yeah. Made it through six chapters barely. I'm sorry but this is a ridiculous story. Syd is 28 and a detective. I don't think so. She bosses around a wolf and vampire alpha? Yeah right. Ridiculous. I'm hoping she's the next victim in the ritual. I did not like any of the characters. The story was too unbelievable for me.
Storyline was good but writing was clunky and distracting. Too much showing and not telling and blocks of unrealistic dialogue.
