My Blood Runs Blue 
Officer Kristin Greene has always felt that something was missing from her life. Although her job with the Fawn Hollow Township Police Department keeps her busy, she still feels like there is something else out there for her.
She soon finds herself investigating a homicide where a young woman has had her throat ripped out. When she has to give the death notification to the family, her investigative nature comes out fast and strong when the parents seem too accepting of their daughter's death and make comments that just don't fit.
When the family requests the assistance of the VMF Securities, Kristin is confused that they would think a security company could assist with the murder investigation. When Julian and Alexander arrive she quickly finds herself being pulled into a love triangle that has been going on longer then she has been alive. Why do they look at her as if they know her? And why do they keep talking about Calista?
Join Kristin as she fights to learn the truth about the recent murder, the seductive and blood drinking men that have entered into her life and the real truth about herself.


Wow. What a fantastic start for a new series and new author. This novel is written in first person. While reading the same scene from each person's point of view can be a bit tiresome, it also adds a level of understanding for each character you would not have gotten otherwise. Julian and Alex's friendship ended years ago when they both loved the same woman, Calista. After her death, they both dealt with loss and guilt. Thirty five years later, Kristin is the reincarnation of Calista. Now the love triangle starts all over again. Through their memories, you feel how much both men truly loved her. Julian's memories of Calista's death are heart breaking. Now Kristin is faced with trying to sort through her feelings and everything she has learned to choose between the two. Have you ever wondered if you could go back and experience a major event in your life again, if you would make the same decisions? The answer to that question is what Julian and Alex both want and fear.

In the meantime, they still have to try to keep Kristin safe from the vampire intent on ridding the world of all female vampires/half breeds. I will openly admit I did not see the ending coming. I was surprised and I'm still processing how I feel. That is a sign of a good book! I can not wait to read the next one.
