Julia Taylor works as a recruitment consultant for Paranormal Personnel in London. Her normal day at the office consists of seeing clients, searching for new vacancies, updating CVs and visiting employers.
It seems as though she has an ordinary life but in reality Julia is half elf and she works for a recruitment agency for paranormals.
She is normally calm, confident and is not afraid to stand up for herself, but when the meeting with La Caz Corporation doesn’t go as well as she hoped, she wants to bury herself under the ground and die.
Nathaniel La Caz is a player and he wants to seduce Julia. The incredible sexual chemistry that builds up between them complicates her life to the point where she can’t control her magic. La Caz not only wants her but he also has a craving for her blood. Then her ex-boyfriend Jasper comes back on the scene and nearly exposes the whole paranormal world to humans when trying to protect her.
It doesn't end well when vampires and elves mix. The problems start escalating when Julia witnesses the kidnapping of her cousin Claudia on the busy street. From then on things only go from bad to worst. More elves and fairies begin to vanish in London without trace and the police suspect vampires. Julia is determined to find Claudia even if it means she will get herself into more trouble.
*Adult Paranormal Romance novel - contains adult situations, graphic sexuality, violence, suited for ages 18 and up
This is unique paranormal story. Think of Harry Potter's world but all adult and grown up. Magical creatures working side by side with humans and all... with a twist. Vampires are a normal occurrence and now have the option to take a new medicine that helps them control their thirst.
Elves and vampires do not go well together. The scent of an elf is so intoxicating to a vampire, that self control is almost impossible. Our main character Julia is half elf and half human, but her essence still attracts one of the most attractive, single, and notable womanizers of all - Nathaniel La Caz. He is half vampire and half human and has never had a girlfriend. Women to him are only good for a one night stand. Meeting Julia immediately starts the attraction both ways and these two you know will not be able to keep their hands away from each other.
I was very impressed with the twists and turns in the plot line. We have not only this forbidden love affair, but we also have the mystery kidnappings, the cast of magical characters that intersect with our two lovers to be, and the suspense of will Julia be able to survive all the dangers that surround her.
Although I normally do not read paranormal novels, I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of this story. I am dying to know what happens next!
