ReVamp's hottest Vampire Rehabilitation Specialist has been burning moonlight looking for a cure to what's ailing the blood supply in Crimson Bay, California. The mysterious infection is causing vampires to hit the streets and act like...well...a bit like Dracula when he's cranked out on venti mocha vamppuccinos. Neither her arranged marriage on the blood-smudged horizon, nor the threat of shutting down her clinic can tear DYLAN'S eyes off the prize--proving once and for all vampires aren't blood-lusting primal creatures. The last thing she expects while prepping a newborn for coven induction is to be spun for a wet and wild loop by the muscle bound vampire she finds beaten to a pulp and sprawled out on her bed. 

Little does she know, the shape-shifting goon squads dead set on oppressing vampiric rights have a dark trick up their flickering sleeves. They’ve sent a sheep to sleep amongst the wolves… 

Shape-shifter by birth, assassin by rank, and vampire by damned unfortunate circumstance, SLADE just wants to penetrate the coven of leeches, complete his risky assignment, and high-tail it out of there. Despite himself and shape-shifting law, he’s fired up; ready to take Dylan six ways from Sunday….with a Blood-Blasted cherry on top. When Slade’s next target is unveiled to be Dylan he must make a choice: complete his task and assassinate the love of his life, putting an end to the vampire uprising or die a traitorous death at the hands of his shape-shifting brothers and kick-start all-out war.

Intervamption is a good start to a new paranormal romance series. I really like how the author brought the paranormal aspects into the romance. The romance between the hero and heroine was very believable and hot. There’s a different take on shifters and vampires this author brings to the paranormal table. Then there’s the mating is not only hot it’s dangerous, yep, a little different twist there too. 

At first I didn’t think I would like this story because Dylan has three men pining over her. One is her best friend, the other is her true mate even though they are enemies and then there’s the one that is placed before by the Leader, but all the fuss over Dylan did last too long at least they had work to do to keep them occupied. Well, except for the best friend he might have had some real issues going for a bit *shaking head* poor guy.

Shade I loved, reason I am getting tired of the same paranormal hero going ape on their mate all the freaking time grrr. Shade didn’t fall into this, he is cool laid back even though he keeps an eye on Dylan he is not all up in her space when she needs to take care of issues. Dylan is very responsible with the work she does and she has a heart that will help anyone, even a stray enemy named Shade. 

I enjoyed the world the author has set up it’s complex but easy to understand. There is a prophecy that all factors has to stop. Dylan and Shade didn’t even know they are the biggest part of the prophecy, so this comes a s bit of shock. You’ll have to read to see what roles they play and you might find some Indiana Jones action.
