Review of Seduced by Blood by Laurie London

Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two vampire coalitions:
Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors… Hot-blooded and hard-edged, Tristan Santiago has an uncanny ability to see beneath the surface—a skill that serves him well as the Guardians' region commander. But when a deadly plot against his fellow vampires is uncovered, he must turn to the one woman he can't read: the beautiful yet mysterious Roxanne Reynolds, whose sensual presence soothes his tormented memories. Roxy had put love before duty once before, with devastating results. But to root out a dangerous traitor in their midst, she must put her faith in Santiago, the one man skilled enough to break through her defenses. Posing as lovers, Santiago and Roxy work side by side—and discover a powerful craving that threatens to consume them both….

Seduced by Blood by Laurie London is the first book I have read by her and it certainly will not be the last. Although this book is a part of a series, it can also be read as a stand alone novel. I loved the character Roxanne because of the calming effect she had on Santiago, they balanced each other out nicely. The pace of Seduced by Blood was just how I like books to be - not too fast but not slow either. All of the characters from Laurie London's Sweetblood series had a role in this book which was helpful to me and it helped me get to know each character - some more than others. Laurie London has earned herself another fan.
