Blood Heat is a Ebook Blood Heat (Blood Lines, Book 4) by Maria Lima Paranormal Romance -Oct. 26th, 2010 4 ½ stars Maria Lima’s Blood Lines series is 1 that readers who love urban fantasy and a strong heroine (particularly fans of books like Laurell K. Hamilton’s early Anita Blake books) will enjoy. This is the author’s 4th book in the series and her heroine, Keira has just returned to her small town in Texas after extensive training in Canada . Keira learned she was the Kelly Heir. Her extended family has special magical talents but every so often one of them is born with all the talents. When Keira turned of age she was bombarded with all the talents and now is the Heir. Keira just wants to set up shop in Texas and relax but as the Heir she is responsible for all the supernaturals in the territory. She also has as a lover named Adam who happens to be a powerful vampire to assist her. But Keira likes to work hands on. And when the local werewolf alpha asks to meet her and she is asked to help in a series of mysterious shootings and the disappearance of a new werewolf couple Keira finds more than she expects. And unfortunately, the deaths keep mounting… This was a great read. I loved how the author drove into the wer society and I really got to know and care for many of them. The wer politics and how they are trying to mesh with the human in the area was interesting as was their clash with the strong religious group that doesn’t like outsiders. There were so many suspects! This story was well written and although Keira has a relationship with Adam it is really secondary to solving the disappearance of the werewolves in the area.This book reads like an exciting mystery story with a super cool detective who has some really neat paranormal abilities. The only dark spot for me was the strange relationship between Keira and her on and off again best friend, Bea. Bea is human but her character is whiny and weak compared to the other characters and sometimes I felt she was just thrown into the mix to make the story more complex. But since I didn’t care for her, I found her a distraction. They mystery is solved satisfactorily but Keira’s life as the Kelly Heir has some huge headaches. So, the ending is a cliffhanger and this made me very impatient for the author’s next installment. Fast paced, exciting, and imaginative. This is a series urban fantasy lovers will find a haven in.

Bestseller Books Blood Heat Full review posted at http://urbanfantasyinvestigations.blo...The book starts as Keira has completed a 3 month training stint with Gigi on being the Kelly Heir and is now back in Rio Seco. The whole Court is getting ready for the big reception where all the of the people Keira and Adam will rule over come in and meet them and also where Keira will Blood Bond with her Brothers/protectors. If the stress of that isn't bad enough they are visited by a local werewolf pack that has been having members disappear and they jump right into that investigation. I didn't feel that Blood Heat had as much action as the previous books in the Blood Lines series. I still thought the book was written very well and we learn a little bit more about Adam and Keira's past. The ending will get you excited to read the next book as we will finally be getting into stuff about Keira's Mothers side of the family tree!! The next book is guaranteed to have a TON of drama.
