Book 1 in the Vampire Nightlife Series

There are two things Boston detective Lacey Gardner knows about killing vampires. Slicing off a head or a hit directly to the heart are the only surefire ways to kill one. Silver is their Achilles heel. A vampire never wears silver.

When she meets bartender extraordinaire, Damon Harte, her heart does a quickstep for the dark hunky guy. She's learned the hard way that having a love interest in her line of work can be heart-wrenching. She's kept to herself for years, but something about Damon captivates her and draws her to him. When she learns Damon's devastating secret, she knows what she has to do: kill the man who has stolen her heart.

I loved the action right from the beginning of the book. It definitely got me hooked, and then I met the heroine, Lacey & absolutely loved her. It's nice to see a main character who is a strong assertive female. This book has action, adventure, romance and rich, well developed characters. I will be waiting for the sequel, cause I know it's coming!

I love to read--almost anything--but if a book starts out slow and doesn't hold me, I'm probably not going to make it through the first couple of chapters. The Silver Cross was not one of those books. From the moment I clicked it on my Nook, I couldn't put it down. Lacey is punishing herself for her sister's death by screwing LOTS of men. And she hates vampires. In fact she's part of the secret team who hunts them. Then she meets Damon. Lots of suspense and unexpected twists in this great read! A great book for any vampire lover! I can't wait for the next book in the series.

"The Silver Cross" is a fast paced paranormal, romance, suspense novel. The authors pen their characters strong in a well developed plot. A great read for any vampire lover. *4 Stars* This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

Lacey Gardner is a Fringe detective, and while her personal life might be a mess, she's good at the job. Lacey has but one mission--rid Boston of all vampires. Maybe then, that'll help her come to terms with what they did to her sister. But there's one thing Lacey hadn't counted on. Damon Harte. The guy is simply scrumptious. He's exactly the kind of hero romance readers love! And then there's Nic. Nic is just the worst kind of evil. I love to hate him. In my opinion, the war between Damon and Nic truly makes this book a fascinating read. If you love a good paranormal romantic suspense, I highly recommend this one!
