Seriously sensual! The sexual tension leaps off the page. DePaul has made a name for herself with paranormal fans who aren’t shy when it comes to titillating dialogue and interaction.

Special Agent Felicia Locke is drawn to Knox Devereau like no other. They’re connected in a way that seems unfathomable. Yet Knox, a half-breed vampire, has a destiny that lies in marrying a vampire and saving his clan. Felicia wants Knox, but being his mistress isn’t enough. Knox is determined to find a cure for the anti-vamp vaccine slowly killing his people. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to let Felicia get away. He’s determined to make her his lover. Working together to reclaim the stolen antidote gives him the advantage, as he knows Felicia cannot resist their attraction. But Felicia wants fidelity, too. Their dangerous mission may be the one thing that forces them to choose: love or sex? (BERKLEY SENSATION, May, 384 pp., $7.99)
