Zacke Kensington's chosen profession as a cop allowed him to legally rid the street of evil, and he was good at it.  When a beautiful woman is attacked by carjackers and her life is in danger from the criminals, Zacke arrives on the scene, just in time to save her.  Miranda is a surgeon, and she is captivated by her rescuer.  What she doesn't know is that he is over 200-years-old, a vampire, and is also attracted to her.  This fact is soon known by his maker, Gabriella, who believes that Zacke belongs to her and begins committing vicious attacks in retaliation.  Can Zacke stop her before she targets Miranda who doesn't even know that he is a vampire?

Faith Smith weaves a story that is full of action, romance, and vengeance. The hero is strong and mysterious, and the heroine is beautiful and intelligent.  This book has an interesting story-line, not the usual run-of-the-mill vampire story, and my only criticism would be for the illustration on the cover.  The image of Zacke is quite dated and would not appeal to young adult readers who may not read the book as a result.

Knowing the author, I was excited to finally read this book after it was published. I started the book which at first seemed slow, but knowing you had to set the stage and introduce the characters was fine. After reaching chapter 10 I ended up staying up most of the night to finish the remainder. I really got into the characters and look foward to the next saga to unfold. and bring the tissue, this one will hit a soft spot with the heart. He's the kind of man most women would want, romantic, funny and oh those teeth.
