Summary from publisher:

Josh Brenner is a good looking guy with an extraordinary talent he thinks is a curse - He's telepathic and he can't find the mute button, so he lives in solitude only coming out at night. But Josh isn't the only supernatural out and about this cold March night, because when Josh returns from his midnight run to the store to avoid people, he runs smack into a hungry agitated vampire looking for something and Josh is in his way.

Horrified by what he's seen and barely escaping with his life, he confides in a woman he barely knows, but has an instant connection with. When another vampire shows up looking for the first, Josh and his friend Lanie find themselves running for their lives and head to Oljone, California where a friend of Lanie's from College has helped her with a supernatural problem in the past.

But when they get to California with the vampire hot on their trail, they find Darby, Lanie's college pal, has moved to Massachusetts in search of her vampire boyfriend Devon. Luckily Darby's sister Rowan and Devon's vampire brother, Blake, step in and help Josh and Lanie as best they can.

The four work together along with Dean (a werewolf) and his girlfriend Sally (a witch) to figure out this crazy mystery. What does this determined vampire want and why? And is he willing to kill for it? As this mystery unfolds, so do other darker mysteries. Will they figure things out in time before some is killed? You'll just have to read it to see!

My Review:  

I have been reading so many historical romances lately. I thought it was time to overload on the paranormal. It is October after all. I thought this one was perfect.

Lanie and Josh were such a great couple. They were the type of couple that you know from the moment you meet them that they just “fit.” They had such a connection both literally and figuratively. Josh was such a loner and Lanie was his solace and that was really evident in their relationship. They do spend much of the book apart, which is a bit disappointing, but it was more than made up for with the action and adventure.

I really did like this book quite a bit even though I normally dislike jumping in at Book 4. It was full of romance, action and adventure. I didn’t even mind that Lanie and Josh spent so much of the book apart. Normally that would be one of my peeves. But I was kept distracted by the other elements of the plot. I loved  T. Lynne Tolles’ writing style. It flowed very well and really helped me get into the story.

I am definitely looking forward to Book 5, Deadman’s Blood. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us because this one ended in one whopper of a cliffhanger.
