Product Description

Jess Haines draws readers deep into the mesmerizing world of the Others--werewolves, vampires, and mages who make their home among humans, and are turning Shiarra Waynest's life upside down. . .

Once, New York P.I. Shiarra Waynest's most pressing problem was keeping her agency afloat. Now she's dealing with two dangerous, seductive vampires who have been enemies for centuries. The only thing Max Carlyle and Alec Royce agree on is that they both want Shia--for very different reasons.

Max is determined to destroy Shia for killing his progeny, while Royce's interest is a lot more personal. That's not sitting well with Shia's werewolf boyfriend, Chaz. As the feud between Max and Royce gets ever more deadly, a powerful vampire-hunting faction is urging Shia to join their side. Shia has always believed vamps were the bad guys, but she's discovering unexpected shades of grey that are about to redefine her friends, her loyalties--and even her desires. . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first 15 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book 2 in Jess Haines' 'H & W Investigations' Series

Annoyed with her werewolf boyfriend, Chaz Hallbrook for failing to keep their date and not bothering to let her know, Private Investigator Shiarra Waynest recontacts the enigmatic Master vampire, Alec Royce to ask for his advice and assistance in an investigation. While she's waiting for a pizza delivery - and Alec - Shia opens her front door to find a strange vampire pointing a gun directly at her.

Between werewolves, a manipulative (and seductive) vampire who might want to cause her harm, manipulative and violent vampires who definitely want to cause her harm, and an anti-paranormal being league (know as 'White Hats') who want to recruit her, it's hard for Shia to know where she's safe.

In this outing, there's a lot more about Shia's relationship with Alec, to whom she is (thanks to a bit of legal jiggery-pokery from her business partner) MUTUALLY contractually bound, and comparatively little sign of Chaz... who keeps disappearing on mysterious 'pack business'. An excellent second novel in the series, giving enough resolution to provide a satisfying conclusion, but still leaving plenty of plotlines available for future development.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow on...... 14 Jan 2011
By sharon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is Book 2 following of the H&W Investigations series Hunted By The Others,
I eagerly anticipated the sequel & it cetainly has not let me down, Shia reluctantly gets involved again, when she learns with a gun in her face that a master vampire is coming to town & is gunning for both Royce & Shia over the death of a progeny. The options put forth by Royce are unacceptable and even though she knows it's a bad idea she goes to the last people she ever thought she would turn to for help.
I loved the supporting characters - the creepy talking belt is back & a vampire mute & charismatic elf join the fray. Ihe battle lines have really been drawn & Max is not going to stop with Shia, he wants the whole shabang, & Royce destroyed...
There's no let up from start to finish, & boy have the battlelines been drawn, superb drama, complex emotional reactions & an undiluted storyline that rachets up the drama & intensity til the finale.
You get real insight into Royce & his intentions, something Shia at any cost does not want to acknowledge or pay the price, there are hints thoughout the book of disturbing occurances that are never quite answered, so although not left on a cliff hanger, there's still plenty to chew on till the next release.

It has a deep dark undertone throughout, but still peppered with humour & flawed character's , I haven't enjoyed a series so much since Stacia Kanes 'Unholy' or the lighter but still addictive 'Chicago Vampire Novels' by Chole Neill
Loved it....

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible 24 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are so many problems with this book. I find the lead character incapable of defending herself despite being a hunter. She waits for a vampire to save her, and also is bigoted towards him. It's so frustrating reading her bigoted and racist thoughts about people who are trying to help her. I wonder why in hell the vampire even cares. Then when she finds out she herself might be other, there is just no revelation or thought. I really had high hopes for this series but it is really disappointing, don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good read 22 April 2013

After reading the first book (Hunted By the Others) and really enjoyed that, was pleased to find that this continues in the same quick pace, with the same good, easy-to-read writing. Lots happens in a short space of time in this book. We get to find out more about the characters and as well as a good novel, where the main items are resolved at the end (I hate cliff hangers in a book - you have to wait so long for the next one!!) the writer continues to lay great foundations for an entertaining series. Looking forward to continuing the series!
