Beyond the Poison Chalice by Helena Maeve


Coveting the enemy is simply to die for.

Claudia Salizar has given blood, sweat and tears to the tenuous armistice between the factions that inhabit St. Louis. She rules the north side with an iron fist, striving to keep the peace between vampires, werewolves and humans no matter the cost. Stumbling across two mysterious intruders who may jeopardize everything she’s worked for is no small inconvenience.

The pair need safe passage out of the vampire quarter and they’re willing to negotiate. Claudia is immediately drawn to Silver, a human with an unusually delectable scent whose tantalizing touch brings her to the height of ecstasy. His taciturn companion is harder to crack, but Claudia has met her fair share of werewolves and giving herself to Lucan awakens desires she has too long suppressed.

Justice is soon the furthest thing from Claudia’s mind, but colluding with outsiders can have unforeseen ramifications. It’s not long before running Silver and Lucan out of town seems like the only sensible option. Time for Claudia to decide what she values more—her hard-won reputation or the two men in her bed?

Publisher's Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Wild After Dark anthology by Totally Bound Publishing.

I've read a few of Helena Maeve's other stories so I picked this one up without really reading the synopsis and was happy to find it was not just a vampire book, but shifter.... oh and the little surprise that Silver is.

I liked this story and the fact that Claudia is one heck of a tough woman. I do wish the story had been expanded upon so we got more of what was going on with Silver and Lucan, not to mention the world they all live in although that was explained clear enough for me to not feel too needy.

The naughty scenes were excellent as I've come to expect from Helena Maeve, but the flow and the storyline was quite unique and fun to read.

I'll be looking forward to more for sure!



Helena Maeve has always been globe trotter with a fondness for adventure, but only recently has she started putting to paper the many stories she's collected in her excursions. When she isn't writing erotic romance novels, she can usually be found in an airport or on a plane, furiously penning in her trusty little notebook.
