Vayl is the CIA's top assassin. A master of black ops, he has never failed. He's also a 291-year-old vampire. Assigned to protect Vayl, if such a formidable creature can be said to require protection, is Jasmine Parks - 'Jaz' to her friends. But Jaz has got problems - and not just the run-of-the-mill ones you'd expect from someone whose job consists of putting her life on the line for an undead assassin. She hasn't had sex in god knows how long, so Vayl's almost overpowering vampire charisma is making it increasingly difficult for her to keep their relationship ...professional. Her personal life is a long line of missed birthdays and Christmases, and lies and excuses to her family. And then there's that other thing: the blackouts. See, there's times that Jaz can't account for and things that happen in those times that Vayl - not to mention the CIA - may not appreciate. And if they find out, Jasmine knows it won't just be her contract that's terminated ...

This is book 1 in the Jaz Park series & what a start to the series! Jaz Parks is the leading character and she is awesome, she has a great sense of humour and she kicks ass! She also has a great relationship with Vayl her boss the vampire and there is definitely a spark between the pair, which I cannot wait to read more about.They are both CIA assassins so expect a lot of action! a must read for Anita Blake fans! I loved it fast paced action packed and great complex characters!! Next in the series is : Another One Bites the Dust.
