Lifelong Texan, love reading from many genres thanks to early childhood readalongs with my Dad, love cooking for my family, working in my yard, playing with my cats and since being diagnosed in late 2012 with RRMS finding ways to keep body and mind active is even more important.
The Gatekeeper - Heather Graham Book SynopsisElven detective Saxon Kirby is under pressure to find out who left a gnawed body at a Las Vegas tourist attraction. He already knows what is responsible: a werewolf. The Keeper of the Vegas werewolves is supposed to control his charges, just as Keepers have kept vampires, shifters and other paranormal races in check for over a century. But the local Keeper is weak and there is nothing to stop the murderous wolf--except Saxon.Saxon's investigation leads him to Calleigh McGowan, a half-werewolf, half-Elven dancer who entrances him with her sensual moves and promise of carnal pleasure. She's a sexy distraction Saxon doesn't need--even if Calleigh has her own reasons for hunting down the rogue werewolf. But in order to catch the killer, they'll have to put their lives--and hearts--on the line.Look for more stories in The Keepers: L.A. series coming soon from Harlequin Nocturne, starting with Keeper of the Night by New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham.My ThoughtsPower corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, especially in Sin City. Wealth equals power and Las Vegas is the playground for not only humans who abuse their positions but Werewolves and Vampires too. Following up on a murder investigation, Detective Saxon Kirby becomes quickly involved in something that even he may not have the strength and skill to survive. Depending on his Elven heritage to make a difference, his fellow officers to back him up and a beautiful half werewolf/half Elven woman as an ally Saxon gambles in a town where a roll of the wrong dice can easily find one a shallow grave in the desert. In this story it might even mean one could end up as the next meal for a murderous werewolf. Short intro into the newest installment in "The Keeper" series that gives a bit of insight into how an overseer to enforce rules and regulations came about for the keepers of the supernatural communities this story basically introduces Saxon Kirby and his future role.
