Half wolf, half vampire and with abilities that are still manifesting, Riley Jenson’s work as a Guardian is never boring. Her latest cases involve dead humans and dead vampires. And if that’s not enough trouble, it’s also coming up on the full moon when her wolf demands sex…and lots of it. Good thing she has her hunky vampire, Quinn, to meet her demands. Of course, nothing is so attractive to her wolf than another wolf, and wouldn’t you know it, this case has her running into the same wolf over and over again…and he’s emitting some serious pheromones himself.
Keri Arthur’s Riley Jenson series is set in Australia and is more urban fantasy than romance; although there’s plenty of hot sweaty sex. Riley’s story comes out in bits and pieces through the novels in this series. “Deadly Desire” is book seven and Riley faces a decision she’s been putting off for quite a while. Wolves have only one mate. Vampires don’t necessarily mate but Quinn is old-fashioned enough to resist sharing her. But what happens to someone who isn’t only wolf? Can she really have two mates?
I like that Riley’s character and life has become more complex and interesting throughout the series. She’s kind of a supernatural detective and her work requires her to take on the worst of the supernatural predators. But Riley didn’t start out hard, and she’s still got a lot of soft parts even when she’s kicking a$$.
If urban fantasies with very strong sexual and romantic interests are your cup of tea, then I recommend you get an urn and start on this series. I’m hooked.
