**And just an FYI: if you see a book listed on my blog that is part of a series, just go ahead and assume that I've read all the books, or am working on reading ALL the books within that series. I may not always list them on here but trust me - they were read.

Meet Riley Jenson. Half Werewolf, half Vampire but ALL trouble. Riley comes from a wolf pack that her and her twin brother were kicked out of as soon as they reached adulthood. Being a half breed normally meant death within the pack - but since their mom was the daughter of the one in charge they were spared. Lucky them. Both Keri and her brother Rhoan work for a government agency called the Directorate. Rhoan is a Guardian. He hunts the bad un-humans and either tries to bring them in for punishment - or kills them. Riley however isn't a killer. She pushes the paperwork and helps the Guardians get information. Riley and her brother pretend to be married and lovers (though they are NOT). They have the same last name (everyone in the pack has the same last name) and it's easier than explaining that they both are half wolf and half vampire let alone TWINS. That just doesn't happen. Her brother got the more vampire will she got the more wolf.

When her brother turns up missing a week from the full moon Riley gets nervous. She can feel his pain and feel him when he is near her because they are twins and have that connection. She is determined to get her brother out of whatever trouble he is in. Along the way she meets a handsome vampire who shows up naked at their apartment door claiming to have amnesia but does remember that Rhoan was a friend and would help him. Riley doesn't tend to trust to anyone who shows up naked at her door (because it does happen often).

The characters in this book are wonderful. This story somewhere between love/sex story, government superheros and a woman with power she didn't know she had. All in all - a great read.
