Fantastic! A terrific start to a new series. Vampires have come forward and claimed their space in our world. Along with them, a new problem: human addiction to vampire blood, AKA Crimson Rush. Children are being turned into vampires to supply the new drug of choice, leaving social workers to try to clean up the mess of broken homes and child abuse. Nicole, having been a foster child herself, is passionate about saving these kids and finding safe homes for them. Damon and his league of Vampire Warriors have been brought in to teach Nicole and her coworkers how to defend themselves since their jobs are getting more and more dangerous. Nicole is doing too good a job at saving these kids and interrupting the blood trade, so a hit is taken out on her life. Damon and his friends now must find out who wants her dead.
Nicole may be a tiny woman, but she is full of passion and fire. She is always thinking of others and lets nothing stand in the way of protecting "her" kids. Damon is instantly drawn to her with a need to protect her. He knows she is his mate, but he refuses to claim her. I really enjoyed watching the other vampires try to force Damon to admit his feeling for Nicole by flirting with her. I had quite a few laughs at his expense.
I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this book and eagerly await the next in the series.
