Overview

The world might not have been ready for vampires when NOPD Detective Travis Boudreaux had the bad taste to sit up at his own funeral, but two years later, the new cause célèbre is civil rights for preternatural beings and most humans are on the bandwagon. Except whoever is killing vampires and wannabes.

Detective Sam Garrett hates all things preternatural. Having your undead partner try to make you his first meal will do that to a guy. One final screw-up gets Sam banished to the Paranormal Criminal Investigations Unit—the Odd Squad—under the oversight of Detective Danny Burkette.

Now it’s up to Burkette to work with Garrett by day and Boudreaux by night as they follow a trail of clues that leads from the historic cemeteries of New Orleans to the bayous of southern Louisiana. Under the all-too-interested gaze of a Master vampire and the local werewolf pack Alpha, they discover some lessons in life—and death—take longer to learn…and not all second chances are created equal.

Warning: In this series the vampires don’t sparkle, werewolves kill, and the men sometimes have sex. With each other.

Meet the Author

L.E. Harner
Laura likes it hot, which helps explain why she ended up Arizona after living in such diverse places as Japan, New Orleans, Maine, and Florida. Once she enjoyed hobbies such as gardening and travel. Now the characters in her head compel her to tell their stories to her readers, so she writes. She shares her home with her husband and youngest son, a dog and a cat. Laura also writes under the name L.E. Harner.

T.A.Webb
T.A. Webb is the writing name for the Big Old Bear That Could (credit to Thomas the Train!). During the day, I'm the Director of Finance for a non-profit agency in Atlanta providing assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS. At home, I'm proudly partnered to fellow writer Talon PS, and the proud daddy to four rescue dogs. I live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, and in my spare time am a pretty darn good country cook.

I stumbled on male erotic fiction and romance about two years ago when a search on my Kindle for “gay cowboys” brought up a plethora of fun. The rest, as they say, is history.

In November 2011, I started “A Bear on Books”, a blog dedicated to reviews of books from the M/M genre that touched me in some way. My goal is to highlight the wonderful writers and stories in the genre in a positive and supportive manner. For more information on my blog, please visit www.tom-webb.blogspot.com.

After making friends with some of the crazy fun people in the genre, I was bullied into trying my hand at writing by renowned authors Amy Lane and Mary Calmes. They pushed me to submit the result, and my novel "Second Chances" will be published in November 2012 by Dreamspinner Press.

    Yup, just like I thought...excellent addition to the series. May

    Yup, just like I thought...excellent addition to the series. Maybe a few too many points of view, but that's okay. For a vamp/wereanimal story, it didn't focus on the "un-normals" being gay and whining about their predicaments. Great mystery, delicioous heat, and strong characters. What more could you ask for? Um...when's the next installment?

    Deep Blues Goodbye

    I received this ebook as a prize from a contest and offered to give an honest review of this story.
    It is a continuation of the enovella Altered States, wherein New Orleans detective Travis Boudreaux is turned into a vampire and the whole world learns that vampires and werewolves are real. It is two years later, and laws have been established as well as a law enforcement department called the “Odd Squad” to protect humans as well as preternatural beings.

    Danny Burkette is a detective in the Odd Squad and is asking Travis for assistance in solving a series of grisly murders involving cemeteries, garden stakes, and vampires turned to ash in the daylight.

    This is a dark urban fantasy with a romance edge to it. It kept me interested and engaged with the characters, and there were plenty of characters. Some characters were introduced in Altered States and others were new in this story. I would have liked more background into the intervening 2 years that New Orleans was learning to live with the preternaturals, but the story was more about the individual characters than it was about vampires and werewolves in general. There were enough emotional feelings and steamy sex to satisfy my romantic notions, but it was more suspense than romance. The cliffhanger ending gave me chills! I quite enjoyed reading this and look forward to the next story in the series. There are plenty of characters to continue this series for quite a while, fortunately :) .
