The Spring Equinox brings a slew of nasties to the streets of Nashville. Huntress Josie Hawk is determined to get her arch enemy to sign a treaty, whether the Assembly is behind her or not. But when Keller O’Leary–sexiest vampire alive–returns, will Josie learn to be a team player, or will she stake the heart that has captured hers?
This novella may be only 39 pages but it packs a punch and doesn’t disappoint. We met Josie and Keller in Alabaster Nights and we pick up with their story shorty after that book concludes.
Josie is humorous and stubborn and her struggle to distance herself from the charming Irishman is the highlight of Crimson Beat for me. The interplay between the characters is witty and sarcastic and their sexual chemistry explosive. Keller returns to town to broker an alliance, during the Ostara , “the Spring Equinox, which is a time when light equals dark it tends to wreak havoc on the world. Josie is torn as she suspects Keller is hiding something (along with her bestie Sage) and feeling betrayed, Josie does what she does best; take action to prove herself.
I love Josie’s character because she is witty, gutsy, strong and a bit vulnerable. She must confront and accept her vulnerability and her need to trust someone (i.e. Keller) in the stunning conclusion. Josie and Keller are a well matched couple and we get to see them happy, for now, at the story’s end.Josie Hawk Chronicles
