This review is written by Crystal. Thank you so much!

Book Blurb:  A woman of science. A man of magic. Hunted for their HeartsBlood. 
Dr. SalistaCalon knew that she worked in a bad part of San Francisco, but nothing could prepare her for the horror that awaited her at the hospital. 
After her best friend is slaughtered, Salista’s only clue is a mysterious man dressed in leather. A man who claims to know not only the secret behind her best friend’s death, but the key to controlling a force that could rend both their worlds... 
Blood Magic. 
Drawn into a world beyond her comprehension and control, Salista must choose between science and magic. Her mind and her heart. 
A love taken to its dangerous conclusion

Crystal's Thoughts: This book is not your normal paranormal romance.  Think, Greys Anatomy with paranormal mixed in.  There are a lot of medical references in this book and those not acquainted with medical jargon, may have to do a bit of referencing to get what the main character is talking about most of the time.  I liked the heroine in the book because of her courage, but also her ability to seem just as human as the rest of us.  There is a lot of fast paced action involved and the ending isn't quite what you will expect.  It was quite refreshing, though, and I can't wait to read the next book in the installment.       

Thank you for letting me read and review this book.   It was something I enjoyed because of the medical aspect of it.  Hope this helps!

I really loved it too, I thought with all the science and stuff I wouldn't but she wrote it so well it didn't bother me.
