Book 1 – The Case of The Cupid Curse

Sam Enderson is a human detective who inherits a building from where his Uncle used to run a detective agency. He finds himself working for paranormal creatures despite his resolve to stick with humans only. To supplement his income as a new PI Sam rents out rooms in the large house.

Bob is a vampire and turns up on Sam’s doorstep to rent a room. Sparks fly and Sam is attracted to the vampire despite himself.

Sam is cursed by a witch, and has two cases landing on his desk. Werewolves, annoying ghosts and a grumpy gargoyle are enough to drive Sam mad. But somehow in amongst all of this he has to find a missing fae and a missing shifter child.

Book 2 – The Case of the Wicked Wolf

Naiads, humans, sirens and a challenge for Alpha make up the intricate story in the race to rescue the missing children.

Sam and Bob have more than just the case of one lost child to handle. Not only is Shelby Hartman missing, but other paranormal children have disappeared. The race to rescue the children is hampered by naiads, humans, sirens and a challenge for Alpha.

Hartman Hunter is desperate to find his daughter. He turns to the demon Danjal Naamah for help. The problem is that Danjal is the only person Hartman has ever loved—the man he let go for the sake of the pack…

My View:

Sam Enderson has left his mundane life, and his cheating ex, behind.  He’s embarking on an exciting new career and a new life thanks to a windfall. He’s just inherited his uncle’s detective agency and armed with his brand-new PI license (obtained through a correspondence course) Sam is ready to take on the bad guys. The first problem is it turns out his uncle was possibly one of the bad guys. Not good news. The second is that in a world where paranormals exist in plain sight and in great variety, well, Sam is not that keen on paranormals. That’s definitely a problem because his inheritance comes with a ghost, and a very small grumpy gargoyle, and Sam has taken on case involving missing werewolf. Oh, and he’s just rented an apartment to a sexy vampire called Bob. Yes, that’s right, a sexy vampire called Bob.

There are sirens and witches and werewolves and trolls and fae triads and demons, and possibly Sam is not quite as ‘human’ as he keeps proclaiming. I really enjoyed the cast of characters, but the highlight was Sam and Bob’s developing relationship.

I loved Bob, and Sam is a good guy. Yes, he has his problems dealing with paranormals, but he will put aside his misgivings to save a child.  And well, Bob is pretty hard to resist too.

This is volume one, and is divided into two ‘cases’,  with Sam and Bob pretty much centre stage for the first, and a new couple being introduced in the second case.

Okay, paranormals, a detective agency, it may have been done before, but this is fun, entertaining reading and I’m definitely looking forward to the second volume in the series, and more of Sam and Bob.

I should add this appears to be a reprint, so just double-check you haven’t read this before.
