Mitch Baine, federal marshal and bounty hunter, has decided this year he is not going to be a wallflower at the annual Masked Ball at Torque, the hottest gay bar in the Detroit area.  Mitch indulges in a little back room sex with a vampire wearing a white mask, only to discover the next day that the vampire, Jarrod Axlerod, is the lead singer in a popular band named Heartstrings and Mitch’s new kill assignment. 

Mitch is the first book in the Baine Family series.  The composition of the plot is an intriguing blend of distinctive characters, steamy lovemaking in addition to a quantity of fatal action.  Illustrated is the common knowledge that the band members are vampires and a werewolf.  Bounty hunters are a division of the Army and hunt only the lawbreakers among the paranormals.  Mitch’s commanding officer is his father, who tolerates Mitch being gay only as long as Mitch can perform his hunting duties.  A major part of the storyline is the interaction between Mitch and his younger sister.  Brother and sister are good friends, who try to protect each other from danger.  The mystery in the plot comes from Mitch questioning the kill order. Mitch discovers several facts that cast doubt on Jarrod being the killer the army is looking for.  As the story unfolds, Mitch and Jarrod’s budding romance reveals the true murderer, which leads to a deadly battle.  

Since Mitch and Jarrod have their happy ever after, it will be interesting to observe which character will be featured in the next episode. Dakota Rebel has created an exceptionally expressive saga that I enjoyed immensely.
