The Slayer

By Theresa Meyers

Copyright April 2012

Publisher: Zebra (Paranormal Romance)

Brothers Winchester, Remington, and Colt know the legends—they were trained from childhood to destroy demon predators, wielding the latest steam-powered gadgetry. It’s a devil of a job. But sometimes your fate chooses you… 
Chasing Trouble

Winn Jackson isn’t interested in hunting nightmares across the Wild West—even if it’s the family business. Unlike his rakehell brothers, Winn believes in rules. As sheriff of Bodie, California, he only shoots actual law breakers. That’s what he’s doing when he rescues the Contessa Drossenburg, Alexandra Porter, a lady with all the elegance of the Old World—grace, beauty and class. And then he sees her fangs.

Alexandra isn’t just some bloodsucking damsel in distress, though. She’s on a mission to save her people—and she’s dead certain that Winn’s family legacy is the only way. Luckily, aside from grace and class, she also has a stubborn streak a mile wide. So like it or not, Winn is going to come back with her to the mountains of Transylvania, and while he’s at it, change his opinions about vampires, demon-hunting, and who exactly deserves shooting. And if she has her way, he’s going to do his darnedest to save the world…

It’s just a normal day in the life of Sheriff Winn Jackson.  He’s stopping an attempted stage robbery. Hoss Dalton has his head and rifle sticking into the window of the weekly stage and Winn is trying to talk him into backing down and tossing him the rifle, otherwise his head would be blown ‘clear off his shoulders’. At the same time Dalton’s henchmen have cocked their weapons with the intent of shooting Winn and possibly killing everyone while taking whatever money and goods are on the coach.

While Hoss and Winn are “discussing” the matter, the steps of the stagecoach drop down and a woman elegantly exits the coach saying “Is there a problem gentleman”?  We are now introduced to the next player in our story.  The Contessa Drossenburg, and here’s where the story goes totally south. The Contessa Transforms from a lovely lady into a fearsome vampire in front of the two men.  She then proceeds to wipe out the Dalton boys in the blink of an eye. The Contessa asks Winn if he knows Sheriff Jackson, and he admits that he is the Sheriff.

The Contessa wants Winn to help find their lost copy of the 2nd part of the book, and he initially says NO. Things move on and he finally agrees.  We are taken on a tour of Europe and meet all sorts of characters who want Winn to fail, or die.  Winn and the Contessa reach an accord and work together very well.  You’ll just have to read the book to find out the rest of the story. All I’ll tell you is that it is one surprise after another.  With a fantastic ending.

FTC Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher, who only requested a fair and impartial review.
