From Goodreads:

Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit, Chicago's newest vampire. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene-and to spy for the vamps while she's at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan's offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission.

Unfortunately, someone is gunning for Gabriel, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She'll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals-not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries-old master vampire.

Opinion:

This is most mature book in series with Merit coming into her own finally. When a oppurtunity comes her way she doesn’t jump on to it without forethought as she would have previously. The spineless childlike Merit of the last book is not to be found within this book.

The plot is very interesting as it brings both complex situations and three dimensional characters that have been lacking. One such character is Gabriel. Gabriel is the alpha of the shifters and much more passionate than what we see within the vampires. This is a species difference. Shifters passionate, aggressive with the vampires being cold and manipulative. This aspect of the plot works incredibly well within this book.

Oh and of course the fact that there is FINALLY steam between Merit and Ethan.
This book in the series is much better than the previous and I don’t see why you couldn’t basically skip over the second in this series as it is basically a long transitional book without real purpose.

Great plot, much more interesting characters and gets this series back on track.
