Rhyannon Byrd--Rush of Darkness (Primal Instinct series)

Raine Spenser is on the brink. Held prisoner because of her abilities, Raine—a powerful psychic as well as vampire desperately needed a savior. But the last one she expected was the green-eyed soldier who’d once hunted her kind. Since her rescue, she’s tried to forget Seth McConnell, unable to cope with the strange, simmering attraction that draws her to the compelling human. But their goals—find the Kraven who held Raine captive and destroy him—are the same. The ever-growing web of danger surrounding them draws these two unlikely allies closer together, and anger slowly turns into an explosive passion they’re finding harder and harder to deny....

*** (3.5 stars)
I really like this series, its just different enough to be really interesting. Each couple are from different species, with different issues, baggage, and paths to take. With Seth and Raine, Seth helped rescue her when she was being held captive by Westmore and became instantly fascinated with her. Unable to let her go, Seth follows her when she leaves the compound to avenge the death of her sister. Both Seth and Raine have some very damaged past to overcome, he was a collective soldier who killed vampires and she IS a vampire. Lots of scars and guilt. They are both strong characters, but at times seemed a little wimpy and whinny. Almost like they were channeling their 16 year old virgin selves. But at least with them they weren't stopping to have sex in the most inappropriate places. (Byrd tends to do that sometimes). The war with the Casus has taken some interesting turns and the end was not as climactic as I had hoped, but it seems that the war is not over yet. We have new things escaping from hell......
