Series: Sweetblood #4
Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two vampire coalitions: Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors... Hot-blooded and hard-edged, Tristan Santiago has an uncanny ability to see beneath the surface-a power that serves him well as the Guardians' region commander. But when a deadly plot against his fellow vampires is uncovered, he must turn to the one woman he can't read: the beautiful yet mysterious Roxanne Reynolds, whose sensual presence soothes his tormented memories. Roxy had put love before duty once before, with devastating results. But to root out a dangerous traitor in their midst, she must put her faith in Santiago, the one man skilled enough to break through her defenses. Posing as lovers, Santiago and Roxy work side by side-and discover a powerful craving that threatens to consume them both....
Even though I am reading this series out of order, I really enjoyed this book.
The story was easy to follow along and the characters building was great. Laurie London writing is just wonderful and I'm so happy she wrote the books in the Sweet Blood series as stand alones as well.
Working together to find a traitor in their midst, Santiago who is a regional commander fakes a relationship with a teacher Roxanne Reynolds.
Santiago & Roxy's story was a good and fun one. I loved the easy chemistry between them and I also like the fact that there element of doubt on both sides..it made for a really sweet and sexy romance between them.
I enjoyed both Santiago and Roxy. Even they both have issues, more so Santiago than Roxy in my opinion..they were just likable. I also LOVED Roxy's take charge attitude when it came to Santiago, especially because he was this hard, cussing dude and she was this sweet little thing with her incense and relaxation music..it was cute and sexy at the same time.
This is the last of the books in this Series..there are four. But I got a feeling there may be a spin off or something. A fun and faced paced read, this is definitely worth keeping and re-reading.
