Review - For Love or Vengeance

FBI Special Agent Helene Alexander is a goddess.  An actual frickin’ goddess. And her mission is clear, see that justice is served at all times or her days as a goddess are numbered. Helene’s new FBI partner defines good-looking, but Miguel Sanchez, wants nothing to do with her ends-justify-the-means attitude. He knows through experience the type of guilt her actions can bring and Miguel wants nothing to do with Helene’s careless ways. Even if she’s so damned hot she makes him burn with the need. When the serial killer they’re tracking strikes again, Helene and Miguel are drawn into a case that will challenge their most fundamental beliefs about justice and vengeance. But it’s the passion between them that forces a goddess to choose: eternal life with all her powers...or death—to save the man she loves.

My Review:

What a great story.  Helene is an actual goddess living on earth.  She is the goddess of vengeance and  is currently a tough as nails FBI agent who will do anything to get justice for the cases she is assigned.  Actually she has too, because based on a deal she made with Zeus if she does not see that justice is served her time on earth as a goddess will be over.

When Helene moves to New York she is given a new partner - Miguel.  Miguel has also recently transferred to New York and has his own share of past history he is trying to overcome.  Miguel is a more by the book type of agent and doesnt care for Helene's methods.  

When they are paired up to track down a serial killer that no one has been able to get a successful lead on sparks begin to fly.  Not only in their working relationship, but personal one as well.  Can they learn to work together and catch the killer?  And whose sense of justice and vengeance is right?  Can Helene fulfill her bargain with Zeus and merit out justice no matter what, are just some of the questions that get answered by the time you are finished.

This story has it all, action, suspense, romance and a great character match-up.  Both characters are strong, with interesting backgrounds and attributes.  We also get to meet many interesting side characters that I hope to see again in their own story.  If you love romantic suspense, like a little mythology thrown in with a vampire or two than this story is for you.  Don't miss out!
