Lacey catches Lethal, but decides she can’t kill him as he doesn’t act like other vampires she has seen.  Lethal is surprised by Lacey and realizes he is attracted to her.

Lacey and Lethal is part of the same world that these two stories, Scarred and Kilt and Mine to Chase, are in.  Lethal is the last of the trio that own and run a bar that allows vampires a safe place.  Chase’s werewolves are the guards for them during the day.

Lacey is attracted to Lethal and decides she is going to use him before she kills him.  I had to laugh at the conversation the two have while she is doing this.  Lethal is just as funny in his own way.  I loved that the two got together, despite the fact she wanted to kill him.  Lacey definitely has her perceptions altered, as she listens to Lethal’s reasons why rogues are a danger to him and other vampires.

Once they figure out they can trust each other, things really heat up between them.  The circumstances speed some things up but I don’t think either was really ready for.  I sort of anticipated some of them though, once things came to a head with Lacey’s former team.

I really disliked her boss, Jeff.  His whole attitude from the beginning was not good, especially the way he treated Lacey once they captured Lethal.  The author did surprise me somewhat at the last scene, though for the most part the ending was also expected.

All the characters from the other stories show up and some are just as entertaining as they were before.  I enjoyed reading the stories, as they are lighthearted for the most part, and will be reading them again together in the future.
