Prosecution attorney Sara Constantine has just won the case of her career, convicting evil child serial killer Xavier Stemmons and is then offered a promotion working for Division 6. She is stunned to find that her new position is to prosecute vampires, werewolves and other supernatural beings. Her first assignment, to prosecute a vampire charged with murdering a Division 6 judge. Simple enough until she walks into the interrigation room to come face to face with Lucious Dragos, the gorgeous man she met 48 hours earlier whilst out celebrating her success in the Stemmons case, the man who gave her a night she will never forget! Horrified that she a) slept with a vampire and b) he is a murderer, she sets out to do her job but can't quite believe the charming Luke who was so tender with her is cold blooded killer.
When Stemmons escapes and young girls start turning up dead it's obvious Stemmons has had supernatural help and Sara enlists the help of Luke to track him down. She and Luke can't resist each other though, and as they get more involved it becomes apparent that Luke is an assassin for the council, the heads of the supernatural community and the ones who govern Division 6, they did not order the death of the judge though, Luke did that on his own when he finds out the judge raped his young and mentally addled ward Tasha. While Sara falls for Luke she has to try to get past the fact that he kills, and that her job is to put killers away, only this time if she wins her case, the man she loves will be executed.
When Tasha goes missing and evidence sugests she could be one of Stemmons new victims and her time is running out Luke and Sarah must hurry to save her, but all is not as it appears.
This is a great start to a new series and I loved it. It's fast paced, there is plenty of mystery, some great secondary characters who will most likely get their own story, like Serge and Nick and some hot action between Sara and the very, very sexy Luke. Phew! I read it in a day as I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it. Fab.
