Although they've been labeled as a group of misfits, Minneapolis' 77th police precinct has plenty of talent. The problem is, it's paranormal talent and no one's supposed to know about it.
Nick keeps his officers busy chasing after all the creepy crawly things that tend to go "bump" in the night, thus insuring the twin cities are safe and totally unaware that other realms even exist. Nick is the Door Keeper and his job as the precinct’s captain is to maintain order in what would otherwise be chaos.
When said chaos rears its ugly head in the form of a ferocious and brutal vampire, the last thing Nick needs is to deal with a new partner, even if that new partner is as sexy as Arrain.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I LOVED this story. It's an amazing new world set primarily in one of my favorite locations; Minnesota, which is my home state! The paranormal concepts are fresh, Hurri's writing style is captivating and the worlds she creates are full of diverse, though sometimes terrifying, beings.
The instantaneous attraction between Nick and Arrain is a combination of destiny and chemistry. Nick's back-story is quite dramatic, and I am always thrilled to see characters who have a chance at a achieving relationships the never even dared to dream might be possible. And Arrain? How hot is he??? I'm a sucker for May to December romances and this is one that lights up the pages.
I loved this novella length story and am eager to see more from this series in the future!
Hurri Cosmo lives in Minnesota where she holds tight to the idea that there, where it’s cold a good part of the year, she won’t age as fast. Yep, she avoids the truth as much as she avoids mirrors. But one of the reasons she loves writing is reality doesn’t always offer up a “happily ever after” and being able to take control of that is a powerful lure. Being a happy ending junkie, writing just makes them easier to find. Oh, she doesn’t mind “real life” and she does try to at least keep it in mind when she writes her stories, but she truly loves creating a wonderful couple, knowing they will fall in love and have their HEA. Every - single - time. And, of course, that is exactly the reason she loves reading this genre, too. Give her a glass of red wine, some dark chocolate, and her computer, whether she is reading or writing, and she will entertain herself for hours. The fact she actually gets paid to do it is Snickers bars on the frosting on the cake.
