Bite the Dust (Blood and moonlight #1) by Cynthia Eden
Synopsis: Vampires. Werewolves. Beasts that hunt in the night…When New Orleans Detective Jane Hart investigates her first official homicide case, she never expects to have her world ripped apart. But the murder she’s investigating is part of a deadly war between vampires and werewolves…and now Jane is caught in that eternal battle. A battle that can’t end well.
Werewolf Aidan Locke has been running New Orleans for years. It’s his job to keep the vamps out of the city. But when a Master Vampire comes to town, determined to unleash hell, Aidan knows it’s time to fight with all the fury of his pack. Beast versus vamp, until the last breath. Then he meets Jane…
One look, one taste, and Aidan knows that Jane is far more than she seems. Far more than she even knows herself to be. She’s important in the paranormal war, not a pawn to be used, but a queen to be won. And if he can’t keep her at his side, if he can’t stop the darkness from descending on the town…then Jane Hart will become not just a fierce cop, not some guardian, but something deadlier. Darker. Aidan will fight heaven and hell to change her fate. To change their fate because he is more than just a predator.
Review: Aiden was an awesome alpha male lead from the moment he steps onto the page. He has a commanding presence and his response to haven’t Jane fallen under his compulsion spell was priceless- “im-fucking-possible”. Their story, the setting of New Orleans, Jane’s strength, and Aiden’s presence on the page made for an entertaining and fun story. I love their character dynamic and chemistry with each other. The shower scene where she whispers, “I want you, Aiden,” and him barging into the bathroom was intense. I look forward to book two in their adventure and love story and look forward to finding out what secrets they have yet to reveal to each other.
