Goodreads Blurb:
Murder is serious business among vampires. If you kill, so do they. They are the Penitent – a military order among vampire society charged with one task only. Execute the condemned.

Vesper Hyde is a model Penitent. Solitary. Skilled. Deadly. Only once has she ever lost a target, even though it almost cost her life. Now the one that got away is back with a vengeance, and this time he's determined to finish the job. She needs to overcome the whispers of doubt and let her instinct and training take over to redeem her failure. But on this second time around, she doesn't expect a sidekick. A very sexy, stubborn, human sidekick.

Homicide Detective Decker Price has seen it all, including the murder of his wife at the hands of a twisted serial killer. When another murder pitches him headfirst into a world of vampires, witches, and sorcery, he is given a chance to mend shattered parts of his soul. But Vesper's world is as dark and alluring as the Penitent herself and he will come face to face with echoes of his past in order to help her keep a vicious enemy at bay.

If they are to succeed, they will need to push aside both their failings and work together to ensure the balance of their worlds remains unchanged. Redemption comes at a cost – is their love worth the price?

This was one exciting read! Redemption in Blood contained a very beautiful kick butt heroine, a hottie Mchotness of a man that is also a detective, add on a new concept to the world of the paranormal and we have a book that any paranormal reader can fully enjoy :)

Vesper is one not to be messed with Penitent. I mean, this woman is a lean mean killing machine! Packed full of weapons, driving around in one of the coolest cars out there (an Aston-Martin), fighting skills that one would not question and just an all around great character, she’s the bringer of death to all that have it coming to them. All that’s only within the vampire race, but she is one that has been trained to execute the condemned, the bringer of justice to all that are assigned to her. Beside her job, she has an ultimate goal, revenge, but she finds constant disruptions when the opportunities finally present themselves. Now it’s one human male that managed to get under her skin, in her mind and in her heart.

Decker is a local homicide detective that is great at his job and one handsome fella! When a recent murder brings forth more memories of his murdered wife he is determined to solve it. Never expecting to find love or anything like it again, he’s shocked when he runs into a beautiful woman on his crime scene and feels an instant attraction. When he’s introduced to her world and finds out about all that is paranormal, he takes it in stride. But he could never be with one of them, or any woman for that matter, he’s still very much in love with his dead wife.

This read had me turning its pages non stop the entire time with its non stop action, romance, humor, sensuality and amazing characters! Every female character that was a main part of the story was kick butt and I LOVED the fact that they all had backbone, looks, comebacks and moves that put some of the males to shame (*snicker*). I have to mention I do have an ultimate favorite male character that was not the hero, but was a hero and that’s Cain. This dude was so fun, funny, and confident and had a real smart mouth that I really appreciated. He added a great touch to the story along with all of the other characters. I look forward to reading more from Tara S. Wood in the near future.
