Review: Kade's Dark Embrace by Kym Grosso

Synopsis:  After a series of girls are ritualistically murdered on the cold streets of Philadelphia, seasoned detective, Sydney Willows, is forced to work with sexy, alpha vampire, Kade Issacson. While working the case, Sydney finds herself inexplicably drawn to Kade, fighting the passion she feels towards him. Kade, determined to solve the case and mete out justice, is captivated by the independent, fiery detective. As he attempts to protect her from a very real murderer, Kade grows concerned that the beautiful, but very human detective, could easily end up dead should she tangle with supernatural forces that are beyond her control.

The investigation leads them into a dark and dangerous world, deep in the heart of New Orleans, where together, they search for the perpetrators of the Voodoo killings. Sydney soon becomes the target of the killer and ends up fighting for her life and love in the Big Easy. Will she eventually give into the intoxicating desire she feels for Kade if she makes it out alive?

Review:  Kade's Dark Embrace is the first book that I've read by Kym Grosso, and it was just the right mix of crime thriller, and paranormal romance.  Our heroine, Sydney, a kick-ass detective is forced to join up with vampire king Kade.  Sydney isn't happy with the situation at first, but as they work to solve a series of heinous crimes, they start to develop a rather steamy relationship. 

Kym Grosso's writing is fast-paced, and fun to read.  I love strong female characters and we definately get that with Sydney.  Fans of Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assasin series are sure to love this book. 

For my young adult readers, this is definately not a young adult book : ) Be warned.

About the author:
Kade's Dark Embrace is my debut paranormal romance novel. I have also written and published several articles about autism. I developed a late interest in writing after my son was diagnosed with autism and started advocating on his behalf. Three years ago, I started my own website, and now blog and write articles for I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, two children and our dog, Ace. My hobbies include autism advocacy, reading, tennis, zumba and traveling. New Orleans is one of our favorite places to visit with its rich culture and unique cuisine. But we also love traveling just about anywhere that has a beach or snow covered mountains. I love reading mysteries, romances and about all things vampires, werewolves and other supernaturals. I hope readers enjoy Kade's Dark Embrace. I have already started writing the next book in the series, about Luca, due out Fall 2012.
