When New Orleans Detective Jane Hart gets the call to the investigation of her first official homicide case she’s unprepared for what she finds. A gruesome murder has happened and a strange man is talking to her as if she’ll forget everything. Next thing Jane knows it’s morning and she’s receiving a call to investigate another case but it’s the same victim but only she seems to remember the first call.
Werewolf Aidan Locke is the alpha in charge of New Orleans. It’s Aidan’s job to protect the city and keep the vampires out but when a Master Vampire comes to town it’s the beginning of a war. And now Aidan finds himself attracted to this detective that has something different about her but so is the vampires and Aidan vows to protect Jane at all costs.
Bite the Dust is a good solid read that some are sure to love. Well written and with likable characters I did enjoy the read for the most part but some part of me was just wanting a bit more or something a bit different to happen. With so many books, movies and television shows out there with vampires and werewolves I kind of felt that there was just nothing new added to make this one stand out more to me.
Jane is the tough, independent heroine that insists she doesn’t need the man protecting her and Aiden the hot and sexy alpha that insists he protects her. The two of course have an instant attraction coming to find with something different about Jane that her smell attracts the alpha wolf with a bit of back and forth between the two then becoming a steamy relationship.
The story includes the war between werewolves and vampires, vampire being evil blood obsessed monsters while the wolves protectors. The story keeps the suspense going between the species and a bit of betrayal involved in the plot. Everything you’d expect from this type of read.
Overall, 3.5 stars, well written werewolf/vampire paranormal read which I did like but just wanted a bit more to really love.
