Goddess With A Blade by Lauren Dane
A recent string of murders has her at odds with Las Vegas's new Scion, the arrogant and powerful Clive Stewart. The killings have the mark of Vampire all over them, and Rowan warns Clive to keep his people in line - or she'll mete out her own brand of justice.
Though her dealings with Clive are adversarial to say the least, Rowan is intensely aware of her attraction to him. But she can't let it distract her from her duty-to find and battle the killer before more women die.
I'll admit it took me a while to get into this story. Nothing exciting happened for a while but then when it did, it came thick and fast. I'm glad I kept reading.
Rowan is an interesting character and her inner turmoil makes great reading. She's a vampire hunter that was raised by the top vampire, and then she becomes attracted to Clive so it's just all up in the air.
The story was okay but I did get sort of bored, the build up to the final fight took ages and the fight itself was over very quickly. It was still interesting and I will probably read any further installments.
