Chosen by Blood (A Para Ops Novel)
Virna DePaul
Berkley, Mass Market


.     Before the war humans between and Otherborn began, a vaccine was administered that would render human blood worthless to vampires. The war’s ended but without the nutrients that human blood provided, vampires are slowing dying out. Knox, a half-breed vampire, is the leader of one of the strongest clans of vampires. He’s approached by the FBI. One of their scientists may have found an antidote to the vaccine. But the man’s been killed and the formula stolen. They want Knox to lead a newly formed team of paranormals to retrieve it. Felecia is the only full human with no paranormal abilities on the team. She’s also the woman that Knox loves. But to ensure the survival of his species, he has a duty to have children with a full blood vamp.
      Felecia returns his love but will not share him. She refuses to consummate their love so long as he plans to bed another woman. Knox and Felecia put aside their problems to work together in hopes of saving Knox’s people. But there are those who don’t want humans and Otherborn to get along. Someone is trying to destroy the fragile truce.
      This is the beginning of an exciting new series. Although some readers may be offender by the graphic sex and vulgar language that is pervasive throughout, this is a really good book.
