Story Overview:
The serial killer stalking Clayton, Pennsylvania, isn’t all that has Chief of Police Grace Wallace worried. For a year, she’s tried to forget Special Agent Ian McHenry and now he’s the expert the FBI sent to catch the killer. She can’t stay away from him, but something primal is telling her to run to save much more than just her heart.

Despite the strict code of ethics Ian vowed to follow as a vampire hunter, he craves Grace’s blood above all others. If he chooses to stay, Ian risks losing his chance at divine forgiveness.

But if he leaves Grace unprotected from the evil he’s hunted for over a century, he loses more than just his soul…

My Review:

This was a book that I enjoyed reading. While living and working as a detective in Philadelphia, Grace and Ian worked on a serial killer case together. That was a case where the killer was delusional and thought himself to be a vampire. They became involved and had sex, after which Ian left and broke Grace's heart. She thought they were going to last forever. Now, Grace has relocated to her hometown to nurse her broken heart and to take over her deceased father's job as sheriff. She's not happy when the FBI sends Ian to help her with a case which is eerily similar to the one they were working in Philly.

If you read a whole lot in the vampire romance genre, there isn't a whole lot of new to this book (although I really did like the comparison of vampire fangs to snake fangs...very interesting), but I still found it completely engaging and the story definitely sucked me in. I don't know where the series is going from here, but there were some fabulous possibilities introduced here. 
**Brad, Ian's best friend and partner within the FBI, who I am guessing will be next because his story was set up really well. It's going to take him a bit of angst to recover from the events in this book and angst is always good. 
**It also could be fun to see a book featuring Ben, Grace's best friend who's also a cop. I loved how protective he was of her...he'd make a fabulous hero. 

No matter where the series is going I plan to follow....

I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

About the Author:
Cera duBois has a strong belief in never giving up on your dreams… Although Cera was unable to read due to dyslexia and a learning disability until she was in the fourth grade, she always had a story to tell. She wrote her first novel in eleventh grade when she had to keep a journal for her academic English class. 
Since her life was far from exciting growing up as a farm girl in West Central Pennsylvania, she decided to rely on her imagination to give her something to write about. Over the course of the school year, she wrote a tangled romance set in the Deep South during the Civil War. 
Becoming an author was her ultimate dream. Despite holding a BS in secondary social studies education from Penn State University, she currently works full-time as a medical secretary. 
A mother of a teenage son and pre-teen daughter, she lives near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband of nearly 20 years. If she isn’t sitting in a quiet corner with her laptop, warm days will find her in the English garden surrounding her house. Cera loves to read and is interested in history, romance, science fiction and the paranormal. 
She also writes contemporary Westerns under her real name of Sara Walter Ellwood.
