Bullet by Laurell K. Hamilton

Anita Blake is back in St. Louis and trying to live a normal life-as normal as possible for someone who is a legal vampire executioner and a U. S. Marshal. There are lovers, friends and their children, school programs to attend. In the midst of all the ordinary happiness a vampire from Anita's past reaches out. She was supposed to be dead, killed in an explosion, but the Mother of All Darkness is the first vampire, their dark creator. It's hard to kill a god. This dark goddess has reached out to her here-in St. Louis, home of everyone Anita loves most. The Mother of All Darkness has decided she has to act now or never, to control Anita, and all the vampires in America.

The Mother of All Darkness believes that the triumvirate created by master vampire Jean-Claude with Anita and the werewolf Richard Zeeman has enough power for her to regain a body and to immigrate to the New World. But the body she wants to possess is already taken. Anita is about to learn a whole new meaning to sharing her body, one that has nothing to do with the bedroom. And if the Mother of All Darkness can't succeed in taking over Anita's body for herself, she means to see that no one else has the use of it, ever again. Even Belle Morte, not always a friend to Anita, has sent word: "Run if you can..."

my thoughts~
Maybe I'm starting to be de-sensitized by the sex because I enjoyed this book. Yes, I still think there is over the top sex going on (and I did skip most of it), but this book did something for me that LKH's books haven't done in awhile. It's made me want to read the next book. I mean, like, when is it coming out, I need to get on the library waiting list, that kind of want. Maybe it's because Richard is back and I definitely have a soft spot for Richard when he isn't being a wolf's ass. And he did seem to step up to the plate in Bullet. I've always said that I could accept a Anita, Jean Claude & Richard storyline. Now I would have to include Micah & Nathanial!
