Chosen by Blood
by Virna DePaul
This novel involves FBI Special Agent Felicia Locke who teams up with local vampire leader Knox Devereaux in order to find a cure for the anti-vampire vaccine that is slowly starving the vampire community. Knox has wanted Felicia since the first moment he saw her and Felicia who finds it difficult to deny what she feels for him when she's in continued close contact with him. As they come closer to locating the cure, emotions heat up and the danger increases.
This novel was a joy to read as it took a whole new view on the vampire/human dynamic and makes it into a believable scenario where two people are brought together in an situation that makes their romance almost impossible. Her plot line and character development with both her first and secondary characters was well written and flawlessly put together.
My one complaint is that due to a quark in the vampire psyche a lot of the disagreements between the two main characters were cut short.
I give this novel a 5 out of 5 for storyline/romance and a 5 out of 5 for bedroom steaminess.
