Alexa O'Brien has never been like other people. A hunter of supernatural rogues, she is a werewolf with unusual but extraordinary power.

It threatens not only her remaining humanity, but her relationship with fellow werewolf, Shaz Richardson, as well.
When Alexa's womanizing former lover and the Alpha of her pack is framed for murder, he draws public attention that could earn him a death sentence if she won't step in to help him. Alexa would love to watch karma at work but as the body count rises, long buried secrets are exposed. She's forced to face the painful truth that not everyone is who she thinks they are.

    Wow. I read this book twice, because I devoured it in one sittin

    Wow. I read this book twice, because I devoured it in one sitting the first time, and I wanted to slow down and enjoy the second time around. Don't buy this expecting a nice sparklie vampire love story. Do buy it if you like grown up vampires with real vampire desires and no predictable behavior. Theres blood and death, and thats balanced out by the growing love between the main characters. So glad there are more in this series available, but I might have to take a brake to save my heart from overload.

    Although it took me a little while to get into this book, I really liked it. I think my problem with the beginning was that quite a few characters were introduced almost too quickly to keep up with who its who. It gave the book the feel of being a sequel. After a little research, it does appear that there are two books before this one even though this is #1 in the series.
    This book reminds me of the Anita Blake series. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.

    First the writer would have you think the main character defends the
    weak and innocent, yet she watches and (gets off on) a vampire draining
    a woman. She also gets off on having sex with men she doesn't like,
    trust or respect. This book was a waste of time.

    Very nice

    What a great new twist on vampires/werewolves. I have read the 2 prequels and the first if Alexa's series and have enjoyed them i look forward to the other books of the series. I hope that there will be a balance struck with Alexa and her werewolf and vampire lovers. It reminds me somewhat Laurrell K Hamilton's Anita Blake's situation with her several lovers. A balance is there between them, they accept each other and it makes them all stronger becausr of their bonds. I would like to see this happen with this series. This series grabs you from the first pages and carries you into its world easily. You can understand the characters because they are presented so well by the author. You become invested in the story and rapidly turn pages as you race to see what happens next. There is great potential in this world Ms. Lee has ceeated

    Good read and fast paced (maybe too fast)

    I really enjoyed this book as a summer escape read. It didn't require a lot of concentration to follow what was going on and every time I put it down, I was reaching for it again wanting to know what was happening next. For a Book 1, there's not a lot of background to set up characters and it jumps from one thing to the next quickly. You don't really form a bond with anyone, even the main character Alexa. However, I've already recommended this to several people.

    Oh, please bite me!

    This series is awesome! So glad I found it and to boot this one is free on Nook! Not that it is the same, but to me, puts me in mind of LKH Anita Blake series. At least some of it. There is a love triangle, death,werewolves, vamps...sex...has it all! Must read!

    Omg!!!

    This book had me rapped up from the first page! The way they have the right amount of death and love really brought the story to life. I love the main characters with their different personalities and their many different needs. A must ready book if your tired of the lovey-dovey sparklie vampire crap!!!
