Publisher Description: My name is Anna Strong. I’m a woman caught between two worlds—my past as a bounty hunter, my present as a vampire. I do my best to hold on to what makes me human—my family, my job, my lover. But the pull of the undead is a siren song that’s becoming impossible to resist . . .

Review: There are a couple of covers that pretty much replicate a theme….Jaguar, Hot Chick with floating hair and a gun. Publishers Keepin’ er real…..

This was not too bad. I liked Ms. Strong’s character but the other characters were thinly built. Her ripply muscled boyfriend Max was a real downer as were her parents. Her shape shifting new lover was a vast improvement only because he was, well, a frickin panther. (Note to author, Panthers can swim.)
The story line, while thin, had good moments of interest when the seedier side of being a vamp was revealed. When Strong has to travel to the underbelly of Mexico to feed was a great reveal yet ends rather abruptly.
Strip most of the internal dialogue and needless descriptive elements and this work is an easy 4 stars.
