At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

Book Blurb (from Goodreads)

Beneath evil and destruction lies truth . . .and eternal passion

As a soldier, Cole Granger fights to restore peace to a world divided by war and evil. His extraordinary talents are enlisted to prevent the president's horrific premonition from becoming reality. Nothing—and no one—will stop him from fulfilling his duty. Especially the mysterious young woman who claims to be his comrade's sister. Enemy or ally, he can't yet determine. But one thing he knows for certain is that he must keep her close. Very close.

Megan Fox's quest to uncover a family secret leads her to the center of vampire riots in West Virginia. To find the answers she needs—and clear herself of suspicion—she must join forces with Cole. They work undercover to bring justice, but they can't disguise the potent attraction and need that draw them together. Yet trust doesn't come easily for Cole...and when Megan unearths the grim, dark truth, can she trust him to believe her?

Two of my favorite genres combined into one book! Historical fiction and the paranormal meet in this great read! Megan Fox, a half-breed vampire, is tasked with going to Washington D.C. by General Robert E. Lee to try to stop the spread of the "disease" as they call it. There she unites with her brother, Cody, who is also a half-breed and meets Cole Granger, a Texan sheriff. Cody and Cole have teamed up with others who are also fighting the outbreak of vampirism. President Abraham Lincoln sends Cole and Megan to Harpers Ferry where he has seen a vision of a little drummer boy that must be put down and the final battle will ensue. Along the way they figure that someone close to the camp must be a traitor because the vampires seem to be attacking out of revenge not out of hunger.

Megan and Cole's attraction to each other is obvious. But the problem is trust. Cole isn't sure if he can trust her because she is part vampire and Megan isn't sure she can trust herself with Cole. It was easy to fall in love with these two characters and cheer for them. This book was just a great fantastic read!

Some great teasers from the book:

"I can ride anyway you want me to," she assured him. Cole stared at her, a brow slightly hiked, a small smile curling into his features. She flushed. "Any horse out there!" she said quickly, turning away from him. (Megan Fox speaking to Cole Granger)

"You must understand-I believe that this great nation is one under God. I believe that, God willing, I will win the election and that, in time, there will be peace." (President Abraham Lincoln speaking to Megan Fox)

"The world is an amazing place, full of hopes, dreams, ideals, indignation, wants and desires. And then people don't agree on what is right and what isn't, and suddenly, you're at war." (Cole Granger speaking to Megan Fox)

Kind of sounds like a Historical Western Paranormal to me, love Heather Grahams books though and waiting to get my own copy to read soon!
