WOW I can't believe its is already February, and it is groundhog day. Today we are going to review
BITE THE DUST (Blood and Moonlight ) by Cynthia Eden
Vampires. Werewolves. Beasts that hunt in the night...When New Orleans Detective Jane Hart investigates her first official homicide case, she never expects to have her world ripped apart. But the murder she’s investigating is part of a deadly war between vampires and werewolves…and now Jane is caught in that eternal battle. A battle that can’t end well.
Werewolf Aidan Locke has been running New Orleans for years. It’s his job to keep the vamps out of the city. But when a Master Vampire comes to town, determined to unleash hell, Aidan knows it’s time to fight with all the fury of his pack. Beast versus vamp, until the last breath. Then he meets Jane…
One look, one taste, and Aidan knows that Jane is far more than she seems. Far more than she even knows herself to be. She’s important in the paranormal war, not a pawn to be used, but a queen to be won. And if he can’t keep her at his side, if he can’t stop the darkness from descending on the town…then Jane Hart will become not just a fierce cop, not some guardian, but something deadlier. Darker. Aidan will fight heaven and hell to change her fate. To change their fate because he is more than just a predator.
And Jane is more than prey. Far more.
This is the first book I have read by this author . I was pleasantly surprised, the story is based in New Orleans and it is be protected by the Werewolves and the vampires trying to get into town and the police detective stuck in the middle.
This was a fast read for me and I finished it in an evening . The characters in this book were complex. Aiden the hot alpha werewolf is the law in town . He is gruff, sexy and the law for supernatural in the city . He is one tough cookie but as we see him in the book he knows that he needs to protect Jane and keep her as his mate . He will do anything to keep her safe and his . Jane is a tough girl but sometimes you just kind of want to slap her upside the head . She just gets annoying in a few places , she was reckless and not taking advice from anyone. They are basically a mess by themselves but together they are a great couple. There is an unidentified bad guy that we don't really find out about , but he wants Jane badly . The lines of good guys and bad guys are blurred you don't really know who you can trust through out the book
The author takes the setting of New Orleans in a fresh new way . So many paranormal books are based in New Orleans I was worried that it was going to be the same as all the rest. But the author introduced new quirky characters and gave a great twist to the story line. There is murder , mystery and mayhem in this story , lets not forget there is also time for romance and sexy times. There is a cliff hanger and the couple will be back in book two . But if you want a great fast read check it out
