Summary

Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to not only protect his own kind, but humans as well. Crimson Rush is the new drug on the streets, and it's their duty to find who is behind the selling of vampire blood and stop it.
A social worker, Nicole Callahan, fights for the right of every child placed in her care. There's a war now, as vampires have stepped out into the spotlight taking their place in society, and the children are at the heart of it all.
Damon and his fellow warriors have been ordered by the Vampire Council to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face in their new world. Even as sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.

Fantastically Gripping Story.

I have already read and reviewed the Kindle version of this book (gave it 5stars) and am a big fan of Teresa Gabelman's writing style and The Protectors series but as a new Audible member I want to say how impressed I was with the reading from Jeffrey Kafer; his timing and performance plunged me into this story feet first.

First is always best...

First in the series and although it is quite short compared to the others it is also very good. It's one of the best because it's what got me addicted to the series. Narrator is brilliant. I love Nicole, her spunk has me laughing out loud.

Refreshing & Hard Edged

A refreshing & hard edged Vampire series. It reminds me of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. Although it isn't quite as hard (so far) as BDB. Sadly, there are only 2 books in the series of 7 books in audio format (at the present time). Hopefully, that will change in the future. They are listed in Audible so hopefully they are being recorded now.

The Protector series is about VC Warriors; an elite group of vampires who protect innocents, whether human or those of their own race. There are half-breed vampires that have been kidnapped & scientifically engineered. Some of the half-breeds are traitors to their race while others have been taken in by the warriors. This series is fast paced, detailed & exciting. It has a different spin on the Vampire stories of the past.

Each book features one of the Vampire Council Warriors, his interaction with the warriors & a romance. There is enough steamy romance to satisfy, yet not porn because there is a plot rather than one sexual encounter after another. The latter is frustrating.

The narrator, Jeffrey Kafer, does an excellent job. He brings each of the characters to life. Well chosen narrator.

WANTED: MY OWN PERSONAL PROTECTOR

The vampires have come out of the coffin and a new drug hits the streets, called “Crimson Rush”. This new drug is the blood of vampires and it’s gives the user an unbelievable high. Because of the drug, vampires have been changing children into vampires in order to create a constant supply of the drug. This draws in social worker, Nicole Callahan and her coworkers to protect this vulnerable children. She is an extremely dedicated to protecting children, both human and vampire, and will stop at nothing to make sure there are not harmed. Because her job and her co workers have become increasingly dangerous, her boss brings in vampires from the vampire council to instruct them on proper defense against all attacks, let’s bring in warrior Damon Demasters, HELLO MISTER VAMPIRE!

Damon is an alpha vampire and a warrior, a dynamic duo of a personality. He realizes Nicole is his mate from the moment he sees her but denies that idea because of a tragedy in his past (I’m not telling, read the book). He loves the fact that Nicole puts everyone‘s safety above her own, which he considers a rarity both in human and vampires, but also hates that very same idea because she is always getting into trouble. Nicole is a no nonsense, let me do it, out to save the world type of heroine. She always puts others ahead of herself and loves her job. Nicole wants Damon but refuses to make herself available to him only to be hurt again.

The story is well developed and interesting. I would have like a little more background information about the vampires and the vampire council before they decided to make their presence known to the world. But I like the protectors and their sense of humor.

The narrator’s voice is very deep but not always exciting. He can sometimes be monotone when he is talking. But if you can get pass that, it's not that bad.

Yes buy the book; it’s a good vampire book, with some action, decent romance scenes and funny interaction between characters. In my book, that’s a good read.
