Mark Jensen is Jonathan Vargaís personal assistant.  Mark organizes Jonathanís schedule, meets with the gallery owner who sells Jonathanís art work, and gets Jonathan the feline blood he needs to survive. Jonathan has the Human Hemovore Virus. Being V-negative when your boss is V-positive makes things very tricky for Mark. Whatís worse is not being able to touch the man youíre in love with.  Jonathan being V-positive becomes the least of their problems when an old enemy starts hunting them, demanding what belongs to him.  

Things are humming along quite normally for Mark and Jonathan. Mark is trying to locate more feline donors for Jonathan, Jonathan is painting his black canvases that only V-positives can see, and Mark is still hiding his ever-growing attraction to Jonathan. Then all hell breaks loose. Dead bodies suddenly start turning up and Mark and Jonathan are on the run. Price creates another fascinating world with Hemovore, where the unusual becomes the norm, and the norm becomes odd. A good portion of the world has become V-positive in Hemovore, and most of those who arenít, wish they were, or wish they knew one. Priceís twist on the vampire is fascinating and fresh. Mark is attracted to Jonathan but afraid of him at the same time. Itís not a great relationship builder.  Bloodbonding is an act as intimate as sex.  Mark and Jonathanís romance is angst-filled and inevitable. I wasnít ready for Hemovore to end when it did. Hopefully there will be more to come. Jordan Castillo Price is the Quentin Tarantin of urban fantasy. I canít wait to see what she comes up with next!
