Kiss of Steel, by Bec McMaster

Totally enjoyable vampire romance. Blade is a terrific character: I especially like that he's in a difficult, in-between space neither of the gutter nor of the Echelon, no longer fully human but not yet completely turned. His cockney speech gives him a rough, dangerous edge, and he carries a angry chip on his shoulder, a sense of shame, a bitterness that reminded me of another one of my favorites, Catherine Lloyd's WINDEMERE HALL.
