Bloodstorm (Heart of A Vampire #1)
By: Amber Kallyn
5 out of 5 Stars
When duty forces a shaman to stop a vampire from her revenge, love doesn’t just burn... it bites.
For two hundred years, Niki DeVeraux has been tracking the monster who murdered her family and made her a vampire. She finally catches up to him in a small Arizona town, only to face more than she bargained for. Amid an imperious vampire King, a shaky truce between the local clan and shifter pack, and a too-sexy sheriff who makes her remember she’s still a woman, Niki’s single-minded purpose is threatened for the first time since her turning.
Between his duties as Keeper of the peace for the Magic Council and heir to his tribe’s shamanistic magic, Sheriff Shane Spencer’s job is to protect humanity and stop the friction between the local Arcaine races before it turns into an all out blood war. To make matters worse, there’s an irresistible rouge vampire in town enflaming his senses.
When wolves start turning up dead, the tension between the paranormal races grows and suspicion falls on Niki. Shane knows she’s not to blame, and it has nothing to do with the primal urges she stirs within him. Working together, they must find a way to stop the hostilities from going over the edge. Trouble is, the desires raging between Niki and Shane might prove more dangerous than the surrounding threats.
This was one of my favorite adult vampire story. I love the strong female characters, that no matter who or what don't turn into that weepy "oh save me" characters. Niki is just that. She is strong willed and no matter what is thrown at her she barrels through tough as nails. Even when she meets Shane, who is destined to be more than just friends with her, she still keeps to her true self. With that being said, if you like kick ass females, and magical males, then you will definately enjoy this.
