Shadow Keepers #1
by: J.K. Beck
$7.99 mass market paperback
Bantam Publishing
Paranormal Romance
Released: August 2010

An attorney with a bright future ahead of her, Sara is thrilled with her latest promotion...until she learns her new job is persecuting vampires and other things that go bump in the night. Her first case? A vampire accused of killing numerous people. The problem? Sara just spent an unforgettable night of passion with him, not knowing what or who he was.

Charged with murder in a high-profile case, Lucius doesn't think his luck can get any worse—until he finds out the gorgeous woman he'd spent a night of mind-blowing sex with will be the one to prosecute him.

Now Lucius must try and convince Sara he's not the monster everyone says he is, while trying to figure out who's behind all the recent vampire-related killings. Because every death is making him look more and more guilty, and the ones responsible are determined to see him die...for good this time.

Carla says:

This book is an awesome combination of MIB and Law & Order. I was sucked in from the first page, and left guessing until the last. J.K. Beck has done an amazing job with her world-building, because I can totally see a secret world under our own that enforces the law and metes out punishment on the supernatural community, and the subtle political aspect woven in makes it all the more realistic. The romance was hot and steamy, and the characters were down to earth and believable. I can't wait for the other two in this series to come out.

Annette Says:

I am so glad Carla selected this book I would have missed out on a great book.  From the very beginning you will be hooked and unable to stop reading.  I enjoyed the chemistry between Sara and Lucius regardless of how things look Sara cannot bring herself to believe that he is guilty of the charges and finds herself fighting to prove him innocent regardless of the fact that she is the prosecutor.  I honestly can say I am one person who can't is impatiently waiting for the next two in the series.
