Detective Jonah Pierce is the Head of Arcanum, the government’s paranormal division in law enforcement. When a new rash of vampiric murders begins, Jonah is called in to investigate. Following a lead from a witness who supplied a name and location of a potential suspect, Jonah is stunned upon meeting the alluring vampire dwelling in the old warehouse. Jonah knew he should refuse to give in to desire. Nevertheless, he found the temptation of the vampire too powerful to resist.

Arcanum: Vervain is a mesmerizing romance with an unexpected storyline. Jonah has mourned the loss of his younger brother Riley for ten years. Jonah feels guilty because he was not able to protect his brother, who was also a cop with the agency, from the vampires who killed him. Long before the death of Riley, vampires killed Jonah and Riley’s parents. Jonah and Riley had a very special bond, broken only with Riley’s death. After meeting the vampire that he cannot resist, Jonah faces several new dilemmas. The first dilemma is his feelings for the vampire; the second dilemma is the almost deadly betrayal of a friend. The well written plot is enticing. The characters are marvelously believable. The love scenes are breathtaking.

The amazing Mychael Black is a master at creating superbly unique vampires that tug at your heartstrings. I thoroughly enjoyed Arcanum: Vervain and hopefully, there will be a follow-up story.

Warning: This story contains situations that some readers may find objectionable: Incest.
