While tracking down a killer, clues lead homicide detective, Viviane Taylor to suspect, Julian DeMatteo. From the get-go, DeMatteo unsettles and irritates her. He is a force she has never encountered, someone who excites her even though he is forbidden. Her instincts warn that he’s hiding something and she is determined to uncover those secrets.

As king of the vampires, Julian DeMatteo protects the immortal clans. So, when the beautiful, bullheaded cop embroils herself within his world, he must choose between the woman who reminds him of the humanity he has lost or his loyalty to his people.

As confusing emotions awaken inside her, Viviane can either accept her fate as the one chosen to save the immortal race or lose her soul to darkness. With Julian’s help, she fights an evil that would rip her apart in order to forge a new future with the homicide suspect who has stolen her heart.

 Divergent Bloodline by T.J. Shaw 

Divergent BloodlineA killer is on the loose and homicide detective Viviane Taylor has her eyes on the mysterious and powerful Julian DeMatteo as the prime suspect. A seasoned and dogged criminalist, Viviane’s life revolves around her job, as her friends and family list is pretty much non-existent. Little did she know, Julian would light a flame within her that could either get her burned or be her salvation?

Julian is king of the vampires, a cold and lonely job. Hardened by years of necessary brutality, he has lost what was left of his humanity until Viviane walked in, all brave and determined and just special. Will Julian have to choose between this amazing human and his people? If so, what are the consequences they will have to pay? Will Viviane uncover the true killer or become a target for rival vampire clans as the Achilles’ heel that Julian should never show? Has a long forgotten prophecy brought them together? Is there more to Viviane than meets the eye?

Forbidden love, intense danger hiding in the shadows highlight T.J. Shaw’s dark fantasy, Divergent Bloodline as the worlds of the humans collide with the vampire world. Like your heroine with grit? Meet Viviane. Like a little old-fashioned mannerisms in your dark hero? Meet Julian, unlike most heroes, but just as lethal. Can two beings, one immortal and one with a finite lifespan find the freedom to love, for a blip of time?

T.J. Shaw has all the darkness required to feel the grit and the tension while still managing to pull off an intense romance that almost ignites the pages. Strong characters, some with questionable loyalty to their king round out a fresh and bold approach in a popular genre. Trust me, no vamps will sparkle, they are the real deal and quite beastly at times, when their blood calls on their inner monsters.

I received this copy from T.J. Shaw in exchange for my honest review.
