Review: Love Me to Death by Marissa Clarke
SynopsisMedical research scientist Elena Arcos has always lived her life under the radar, which is not easy to do when you live with the craziest woman in the world. But eccentric Aunt Uza is a picnic compared to the other people who enter her orderly life after she is shot in a convenience store robbery.
Elena finds herself rocketed from comfortable predictability to supernatural insanity courtesy of her own private angel of death who happens to have the sexiest accent on earth and a body to match. Her death angel is convinced she’s some kind of freaky half vampire thing and that her deceased dad was the real deal: a blood sucking monster.
Yeah, right. She’ll play along, but then she doesn’t have much choice seeing how as the guy claims to be some immortal law enforcer and has taken her prisoner.

Nikolai Itzov had expected to fight the urge to torture the progeny of his father’s murderer, but he’d never anticipated battling the urge to kiss her her.
As a Slayer, an elite law enforcer descended from Azrael himself, his charge from the Underveil General is clear: Kill her or die. He has been told she is one of them--an Undead. Nothing but a parasite to be destroyed. But he has been told wrong.
Nikolai and Elena find themselves in a life and death battle to stop a plot designed to lift the Underveil and enslave humans.
With her analytical mind and his centuries of training and experience, they might be able to foil the plot with their lives and maybe their hearts intact. But in order to succeed, he must help her become the very thing he hates the most: an Undead.
I must say this book has the best begining ever. I loved it so much that I had to keep reading. It was pretty good book and didn't disappoint me at all. It is a paranormal novel set in a world of supernatural. It was a fun read. Plot was exceptional and I liked all the characters especially time folder's, I hope there will be a book about him as well and soon. :)

His task is to kill Elena. But then he find out that she is human and there doesn't seem to be any evil in her. Therefore, he couldn't kill her. Now they are both n the run from the king who wants to kill them both. He is evil and wants to rule the world.
