Review and Tour: The Silver Cross by Debra L Martin and David W Small

The Silver Cross was a really fun surprise for me. Yes, it is paranormal romance, but with a twist. The heroine, Lacey, is a tough detective working for a Fringe division of the local police, who investigates unusual, usually unexplainable (to the public anyways) and bizarre crimes.  She worked hard to get there, after her sister was attacked by a vampire, she made it her mission to go after vampires and make the streets a safer place.

She also has a dark side of one-night-stands that sometimes turn out horribly (so thank goodness for a partner who is determined to watch her back even off-hours)... until she meets Damon, the mysterious bar owner who wears a beautiful silver cross.  Then it seems to be love-at-first-sight in a challenging kind of way, with plenty of hurdles, including finding out that her would-be perfect fling just MIGHT be a vampire... but how can that be when he is out in the daylight?

I loved everything about this story - the build up was great, the characters are perfect (yes, even the bad guys are written really well).  I became so engrossed in the story, it was hard to see it end, and I can't wait for the next book!

I did think the end was a bit abrupt and left me dangling with questions of what happens next, but I guess that is probably the point of book one in a three book series.

Loved this book and can't wait for book 2!

About the Book:
There are two things Boston detective Lacey Gardner knows about killing vampires. Slicing off a head or a hit directly to the heart are the only surefire ways to kill one. Silver is their Achilles heel. A vampire never wears silver. When she meets bartender extraordinaire, Damon Harte, her heart does a quickstep for the dark hunky guy. She’s learned the hard way that having a love interest in her line of work can be heart-wrenching. She’s kept to herself for years, but something about Damon captivates her and draws her to him. When she learns Damon’s devastating secret, she knows what she has to do: kill the man who has stolen her heart.
