Key To Conflict

This is the first book in the Gillian Key, ParaDoc series by Talia Gryphon.

Book Blurb:

Meet Gillian Key-a paramortal psychologist who can treat the mental
distress of nonhumans. And she's a Marine Special Forces operative who
can get physical with them when the situation calls for it.

Gillian's
two worlds collide when she travels to the Carpathian Mountains in
Romania to counsel a dangerously attractive local master vampire-and
becomes embroiled in a brewing turf war with the legendary Dracula.

This was an awesome read. I don't think I've ever read anything like it before (and that's saying a lot).

The combination of psychologist and kick ass Marine is something to behold - Gillian Key is a character to watch. She struggles with the different parts of her persona - how should she react to a situation - with the empathy of the psychologist , or the iron will of the Marine?

For my romance loving buddies - there is not too much of that in this book. But don't despair - there is intensity and sexual tension as well as fulfillment. Gillian comes across as one who has not had much romance in life and indeed - has no time or place for it.

I can't wait to read the rest of this series. :)

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
