Internal Affairs be damned, Detective Amanda Werner's ditching protocol to hunt the vigilante whose bullet landed her on the bench. But this is no vendetta. Evidence suggests he's the zealot offing corrupt public officials--the same zealot who's promised to set the city ablaze by week's end--and she'll risk her career and her life to save her hometown. Too bad she can't find anything stronger than Kevlar to guard her heart against her primary suspect: a masked man with a telepathic German shepherd, unstable supernatural hearing, and lips that invite a whole different brand of investigation.
All businessman Ryan McLelas, a.k.a. Klepto, wants is redemption. But even if Amanda could forgive his itchy trigger finger, Ryan still has to convince her that his alter ego's no serial killer. No small task, with syndicate-paid police officers turning up among the dead. He'd better keep his own syndicate ties close to his chest and Amanda even closer, because if Klepto is unmasked while he's hunting the real killer, their passionate affair could mark Amanda as the next dirty cop on the hit list.

Do you enjoy watching Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, and/or Cage? Does the idea of a hunky vigilante with some sort of superpower feed your imagination and your thighs rub together in anticipation? If so, then VIGILANTE MINE by Cera Daniels might be just the story you're looking for.
By day, Ryan McLela is the head of a financial firm along with his two brothers, each with their own unique superpower and spirit animal, who by night, don a mask and assume the role of Klepto. There's a zealot out there killing people as a means to cleanse them and set them free. And a telepathic German Shepherd. Okay, the dog sold me on the story.
Borderline dystopian world serves as the backdrop for this story and it has so many twists and turns, you'll be tapping the pages fast. Ms. Daniels builds the suspense well and I found that I couldn't put the story down. Weave in a romance and we have the makings for a well-spent afternoon.
Likes: So many aspects to this story pull together seamlessly. The brothers and their superpowers, the legend behind them, their spirit animals (I giggled at the image of a bat wearing a scarf), the magnetic attraction between the couple, the concept of the vigilante, and the idea that "to protect and serve" can have more than one connotation. It was all so good.
This is a suspenseful (standalone) story where you will find yourself emotionally invested in the characters' survival, leaving you sighing with relief at the end. Or is it just the beginning?
