Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she's not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can't seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne. Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he's landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem.

Any additional comments?

This book begins the "Realm Enforcers" series and set in "The Dark Protectors" world. It's a continuation that focuses mainly on the male witches. I LOVED the story - a good story is to be expected from Rebecca Zanetti.

Narration: I don't think it was necessary to change to narrator because, consistent with "The Dark Protectors" series, it is told from both the female and male perspective. However, I understand the change might be necessary. My one complaint - the narrator's pronunciation of certain names!!! I'm not certain which pronunciation is correct, but it should be consistent with the "The Dark Protectors."

For example, Karen White (narrator of "The Dark Protector" series) pronounces the King's name as "Dage" (rhymes with sage and as it's written). Brock Thompson pronounces it as "Daga" (rhymes with saga). Karen pronounces Karys as "cares." Brock says "caris." Karen pronounces Veis as "vice." Brock says "vay-is."

Again, the story is GOOD! But the mispronunciation is detracting.
