Crystal Anderson is unique, a huntress who is unable to kill vampires without getting emotionally involved. So when a vampire targets her to be his mate–she’s got to change her tune, or become the creature she’s supposed to kill. Hunter Robert Parker is in Texas to take down the vampire that murdered his sister. When he runs into Crystal, his priorities become something much more grave.
Army officer Crystal Anderson can’t help the draw she has to vampires, although she’s supposed to be drawn to them to kill those who are renegades since she’s a born huntress. But something about her is different. Ostracized from her family, she lives precariously on her own. That is until a local vampire targets her. Then she meets a fellow Army officer Robert Parker–who she believes is one of them–a vampire or blood host, or something. Suddenly, nothing is the same.Army officer Robert Parker is on assignment at Fort Hood, Texas, trying to track down the vampire who murdered his sister after hours. When he spies Crystal coming out of a vampire house, he assumes she’s a human host, and that she can lead him to his murderer. Except he’s drawn to her like a hunter would be to a huntress, until he learns she’s not quite right. She’s fighting alone without a family of hunters’ support, and he’s bound to do something about it before she gets herself killed…or worse.

Dark huntress and rare telepath, Tezra Campbell treads a thin line between being a skilled criminal investigator for the Hunter Council and a renegade. She has an obsessive compulsion to find the vampire who murdered her parents, resulting in severe trauma to her younger sister who’d witnessed the crime a decade earlier.
Prince of the American vampire clans, Daemon, sees Tezra as a danger to herself and to his people if the serial killer vampire terminates her next. He’s also concerned his own brother might be accused of the crime, takes her into custody, and intends to find the killer himself.
Only things don’t work out the way either planned, yet both aim to win the deadly game.

Deadly Liaison has some very interesting twists throughout the story. I loved the way the author wove the relationship between Tezra and Daemon into it. There were some get-the-ice cubes love scenes between the two, but the mystery and the twists about all the killings and the investigation kept my interest throughout. I recommend this book to anyone that likes a good mystery suspense story. This is one I will read again.
~~~~~~”I thoroughly enjoyed the way Deadly Liaisons pulled me in immediately. The action in this book is awesome. I found the writing tight, the plot thick, and the characters strong. When the vampire flew to the rooftop, I could almost hear the sound as he darts in the air, the swishing sound practically sweeping over the pages. Terry Spear writes a gripping story that holds this reader spellbound. The display of emotions that trigger in Tezra, after ten years of losing her parents, really shines, and this reader wanted to share in her loss. I was pulled in with the fighting scenes along with Tezra and Daemon. The excitement and intensity that springs forth in the battles with the vampires is remarkably crafted.”Cherokee
