Review: When Blood Calls by J K Beck

When Blood Calls is the first book in the Shadow Keepers series by J K Beck and a Paranormal Romance from Bantam Books.

Book Blurb:

Attorney Sara Constantine is thrilled with her promotion - until she finds out that she must now prosecute vampires and werewolves. The first defendant she'll be trying to put away? Lucius Dragos, the sexy stranger with whom she recently shared an explosive night of ecstasy.

When Lucius kisses a beautiful woman sitting next to him at the bar, he's hoping only to avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he's planning to kill. But what starts as a simple kiss ignites into an all-consuming passion. Charged with murder, Luke knows that Sara is determined to see him locked away - unless he can convince her that he's not a monster. And that might mean making the ultimate sacrifice.

Sara Constantine has worked hard to make a name for herself as a prosecuting attorney.  Driven by the need to right the wrong that allowed her fathers killer to walk away on a technicality, Sara has made it a personal mission to put away as many bad guys as she can.

Lucius Dragos could not count on justice being served - not when the perpetrator was supposed to be one of the good guys.  So he took the law into his own hands, meting out his own brand of justice - vampire justice.

But it is forbidden for a supernatural to do harm to a human - and now Lucius must go to trial for his actions.  And it is up to Sara to prove him guilty - or find him innocent.

When Blood Calls was a pretty good read.  Though it is a  paranormal romance - it has the feel of a thriller/mystery. 

I give When Blood Calls 3 out of 5 stars and I am looking forward to the next installment in this series - When Pleasure Rules, coming in October.
