A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne’s Directorate of Other Races, an organisation created to police the supernatural races – and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, aka assassin, Riley is merely an office worker – until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn’t be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all-consuming…

Luckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she’s going to find her brother…



~This book has received some pretty mixed reviews in the past, mainly due to the overuse of sex within the book. However if you can see past that this can be a joyful, funny read~

Riley Jenson is a rare creature called a dhampire, half werewolf and half vampire and has the traits of both to prove it. She works as a Guardian Liaison for the Directorate of Other Races in Melbourne, as well as her brother, Rhoan, who acts as a Guardian.

When Rhoan goes missing whilst on a mission and a naked vampire called Quinn turns up at her door things are only just starting to go strange. With the full moon approaching her desire for sex has increased drastically due to her ‘wolf’ nature and her 2 regular lovers are acting suspicious. To top it all off people may be realising her true nature as a hybrid and they want her. Bad.

When she is thrust into all the action she never wanted, she has no choice but to fight back, but to what end? Shooting, conspiracies, obsession and assassins plus a whole load of action make for a hard to put down read. The ending leads up to the next book, making this a series you could happily continue reading. I’m looking forward to learning more about some of the characters in the next book and would definitely recommend this.



“If I had a talent I could claim, it would be as a finder of trouble. Which is undoubtedly what I’d find by sticking my nose where it had no right to be. But would I let a thought of trouble stop me? Not a snowflake’s chance in hell.”
