For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way...

Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.

I’ll begin by saying Patricia Briggs is an author who is a must read and I love everything.  It is so well-written; it easily captures my attention and emotions.  It is urban fantasy at its best.   Dead Heat is in the Mercy Thompson world but is not really a book in that series.  I would read these books in order and not as a standalone.

Dead Heat is a departure from the usual story for Charles and Anna.  This book focuses more on their private lives than Charles’ work.  There is Anna’s upcoming birthday, visiting an old friend of Charles,  and a personal choice the couple is considering.   There is a mystery and action / adventure.

I love the characters. I love the world. I love the writing.  I love the storylines.  I love how it is different from previous works in the series.  There is really nothing not to love.  Go read it. Now.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading.I LOVE books and what they give me.It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way.It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.I'll be doing a feature monthly called Thrifty Thursday,which reviews books (ebooks)that have been available for free.
