This series just gets better with every book. In this story, we meet a were and a vampire with memory loss. Before you say that the relationship will never work, here me out. Lizzie again, puts a different spin on the paranormal genre and with the mixture of demons, weres, vampires and now a witch. I truly can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. We are treated with returning characters that enhance the story and move the plot thread along. Great job.
Tawny is your typical Lousiana girl but with one problem. An overbearing father that just happens to be the leader of her pack. He wants her married, her mother wants her happy and Tawny just wants to marry for love, if possible. As an ex-cop, she is trying to fit back into the country way of life but one night on a run, she meets a stranger in need.
I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t get Tawny at first. I liked her, just didn’t get her. How did she not know that he was a vampire when she found him? And then, when she brought him back to the cabin to heal? It didn’t make sense to me at first. In the end though, I understand why. I liked how she stood up to her father and their back history was so typical of a father only wanting his daughter to marry and be happy. Anyone can identify with that. The interactions with her mother were great, too. She finally realized that her mother ruled the house, not her father. Very eye opening moment for her.
David was the more intriguing character between them. You knew he was a vampire but reading about his history and his tie to the demon was great. I loved how Lizzie wove the religious aspects into the story considering the setting. Well done again. David slowly coming out of the amnesia is a slow build but fascinating. Its not rushed and its brilliant. I would have never thought of creating a character like that. Nor have I read a character like that.
My only gripe, and its small, is how quickly the couple comes together. It felt a little rushed to me but in some ways, I understood it. With the war coming, David realizing how he was/is and Tawny finally coming out the closet, so to speak, it needed to be quick. Think Demons, Hell and Satan. Yes, Satan make another return and its a good one, too. All the characters from the other books make an appearance and again, I love seeing them again. Its a very small community of friends and family that Lizzie has created but each of the characters compliments the others. Word of caution, there are children in this book and they are AWESOME!!!! Not many people like children in their books but trust me, Dani and Keira are a very important part of the whole plot thread of the series.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Let’s see we’ve had vampires, weres, demons, a demon hunter, a vampire doctor, Satan, a floating baby and a physic toddler. Again, the series just gets better and better. *I received this book as part of a blog tour for a fair and honest review*

I Also Recommend:
** For mature adults only, has violent and mature sexual situations in it.**
I loved this book, in some ways more than the previous, but only for the reason we just added some more great characters to the cast so far. Has all of them, we still have Dovey , Aaron, Daniel, BJ, Jonas and Arie, and the kids, and more returning characters I love. We briefly meet Tawney at the very end of Dead Hunter, and this book is about her finding a naked man in the field near BJ’s land in the mountains. She is a werewolf, and can sense he is not human, but beyond that has no clue what supernatural he is. He is unconscious and has a bad bullet wound on his head. So she carries him to BJ’s empty house, and nurses him to health. When this man wakes up, he has no memory of who or what he is.
This one I really liked a lot, as I find stories with memory loss quite interesting. It reminded me of the Bourne Identity movie and book. The memory loss part that is. I found it interesting when his thoughts went to blood, then he was appalled at himself, and kept checking his teeth for fangs. It was quite funny.
I liked the relationship that develops with Tawny and David (its what they decide to call him) and I thought it interesting how he gets “healed” will not say what, as it’s a spoiler. I want to keep this as spoiler free as I can.
We have a war of evil vs good here, well, got that in the others, but this is a bigger one brewing. We find our cast from the other books right in the thick of it.
This book, just like the others, is refreshing, has its action and adults only sexual situations. And we have the fun humor.
I really have enjoyed this series so far, as I had said before the True Blood fans will like this series I think, as well as others that like a big mix of supernaturals in the modern world.
I highly recommend it.
5 out of 5 stars for me.
I received this book for my honest review for the book tour.
