Riassunto: A sexy group of hot vampires protect the President of the United States in this humorous paranormal romance!
Vampires exist among us. They can be our neighbor, best friend, our child's teacher ... They alter their aged appearance based upon the amount of blood they consume. They move to a new area, drink a lot of blood, and appear young. Slowly they limit their intake of blood and age, right in front of our unsuspecting eyes. After decades, they fake their death, move, and do it over and over again. Most live quiet lives in an effort to blend in. Some however want power and control. The Colony is an elite group of vampires sworn to protect the President of the United States from these rogue vampires. Sterling, a half-breed vampire, is the weakest link in the chain for his team, and he knows it. He has a unique ability to glean information from inanimate objects, and his life is like CSI meets the West Wing, where key positions are held by vampires. Vampires can alter their age based on the amount of blood they consume, which should allow Sterling to blend into human society. However, his ability has painful side effects that cause him to live a lonely life down in the evidence room at FBI headquarters. He's a lonely bad-boy looking for love in all the wrong places. His current case involves the kidnapping of vampire children by a religious cult who is trying to save them. Sterling snatches the opportunity to do some field work by teaming up with a purebred vampire, Kate, who is the nanny of one of the missing children. Sterling's world is turned upside down by Kate. She is everything Sterling could hope for in a mate and he wonders if she'd ever consider loving a half-breed. Kate is beautiful, intelligent, charming and sophisticated. Kate has led a sheltered life and is considered handicapped by vampire standards. Could she possibly trust Sterling enough to share her dark personal secret with him? Together, can they save the kidnapped children and find true love for themselves?
This novel is for individuals 18+ years of age as it contains sexual content. It is a humorous romance and should not be considered a political thriller. Although there are references to the President, presidential procedures, the White House and Washington DC, the political arena is a backdrop for the romance. With that said, there is action and suspense in the novel that adds a dimension of excitement to the hot romance.
