Purchase Link: Amazon

Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to not only protect his own kind, but humans as well. Crimson Rush is the new drug on the streets and it’s their duty to find who is behind the selling of vampire blood and stop it.

As a social worker, Nicole Callahan fights for the right of every child placed in her care. There’s a war now as vampires have stepped out into the spotlight taking their place in society and the children are at the heart of it all.

Damon and his fellow warriors have been ordered by the Vampire Council to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face in their new world. Even as sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.


Perfect ~ Keeper

Damon is an exciting, edge of your seat joy ride you do not want to end. The characters are real, sexy, fun and kick butt. Teresa Gabelman had me smiling, giggling, hot and bothered and even a little sad. Teresa Gabelman is now one of my favorite authors that I will auto buy anything she writes.

Teresa Gabelman has open up a whole new world for Paranormal Romance fans. I have read tons of Vampire books and this is by the far the most realistic Vampire book I have read. In Damon vampires are not a myth, they live in a human world. I love the concept that there are kid vampires too. The kid vampires are also able to get adopted right along with human kids by families.

Damon his your sexy Alpha Male hero who is a bad ass warrior. He is a sexy lover who growls and rips panties off during sex. Damon is protective and sweet. OMG... He can kick some serious butt when anyone messes with his loved ones.

Nicole is a strong minded heroine that at no cost will protect anybody she cares for, especially the kids in the system. She never new her parents and spent 18 years in the system. After she left she told her self she would never be afraid again. She takes her job seriously because when she was in a foster home the dad tried to rape her, she vowed she would do anything to help kids in the system, vampire and human. I loved her character. The love and devotion she has for all the kids in the system is amazing. She will do what ever it takes to protect the kids, even put herself in harms way.
Nicole and Damon have sizzling chemistry right from the first time they meet. The first time they meet you can feel his protectiveness of her. Nicole never backs down from him or anybody. He likes her boldness from their first meeting. It was so nice to see Damon this huge warrior who is use to fighting and killing bad guys, actually enjoying playtime with Nicole during one of their training sessions. This scene is fun and playful. I loved how eventually she would get her way with Damon, especially when it came to the kids in the system.

There is cussing jar at work with f-word written on it. It is kept on Mitch, her bosses desk since he usually the one putting the most money it. Love it as it just adds to the story. Nicole had no problem telling him and others when they cuss and need to put money in the jar. It is so funny she even had Damon watching what he says.

Loved all the secondary characters, Duncan, Jared and Mitch. All sexy Alpha Male Heroes that have a good roll in the story.  It is fun to see all these yummy warriors together. Never a dull moment with them. They argue and laugh. Jared was my favorite. I enjoyed watching his friendship grow with Nicole and there was just enough of his personality that you want to know more about him.

Damon is perfect and a keeper for me. It is one of those books that I will read over and over again. I highly recommend Damon and look forward to Jared’s Story. I hope there will be just enough of Damon and Nicole in book 2 as I can not get enough of them. Paranormal fans, Teresa Gabelman and Damon is not to be missed.

Sinfully Good

  3. Great review hon. I love it when authors do something different with Vampire mythology. I like the idea of making it so realistic. PNR is a favorite and this will definitely be on my must read list. Damon sounds like a book boyfriend from Heaven. And I can't wait to meet the other Alpha males as well. They sound equally as sexy. Thank you so much for the review hon :)

    1. Thank you sweetie. Teresa Gabelman is an amazing story teller and she had brought a new world to the Paranormal with yummy vampires. You are lucky becuase if you fall in love with this series as much as I have you will not even have to wait for Jared's (The Protectors #2) like I did. They only get better in book 2.
