Andreas Constant is a vampire and a field
agent for Department 57. He has been sent in to another CIA
department to locate who is leaking information. Andreas’
cover is that of the office wolf that is more worried about
hitting on all the women then putting in a full day at work.
Andreas is very unhappy with this assignment – that is until
he meets Roz Templeton. She is unlike the type of woman that
normally attracts Andreas and his main suspect.
Roz Templeton is a vampire with a large
and powerful family. She has worked for the CIA for a few
years and when her family contacts her about two members that
were murdered, Roz uses her job to locate who was behind the
murders. Roz can find nothing to like about Andreas, whom she
sees as a sleaze and a distraction. When her boss partners
Roz with Andreas to help locate a leak in another department,
she is less than thrilled.
Andreas and Roz do not begin their
partnership smoothly; however, it does not take long for Roz
to discover that she has not met the real Andreas yet. Once
Roz and Andreas meet on equal ground they discover an
attraction that is so intense and overwhelming that it takes
them both by surprise. They are helpless to do anything more
than give in to the emotional needs and sexual fever that
happens when they are close together. Trying to deal with
their needs has to take a sideline as they, along with their
team, try to locate the leak and shut it down. When
misunderstandings happen between them, danger surrounds Roz
and puts her life at stake and Andreas has only one chance to
find and save her.
Rubies of Fire is the
perfect book for romantic suspense and paranormal lovers.
Rubies of Fire has several types of paranormal
characters, and a plot that is erotic, suspenseful, and fast
paced from beginning to end. Andreas is an unusual vampire in
that he has no family unless you count his friends and
co-workers. He is all about his job until Roz. Roz has
always put her vampire family first and her job second until
she learns that sometimes personal needs trump those of the
family. Roz and Andreas go through several layers of deep
emotion and betrayal until they finally realize that they have
to be together forever. I was engrossed in the plot quickly
because of the fast paced action. Although Rubies of
Fire centers on Roz and Andreas, all the characters
and their interactions are compelling. I believe that
Rubies of Fire is a must-read and must-keep in your
library. I have not read the first two books in this series,
however I plan on correcting this immediately and can’t wait
for the next Department 57 story.
