Strong is Sexy Heroine of the Week: Bluebell Kildare

Book: The Light Who Shines
Author: Lilo Abernathy
Heroine: Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue)

Bluebell Kildare lives in a society where prejudice and hate runs rampant between three different breeds of humans (Norms, Gifted, and Vampires). Orphaned by the death of her parents at the hands of Dark Vampires, rejected by her grandparents because of her magical heritage, Blue is accustomed to going it alone. After all, she survived bullying, hate, fear, and ostracism in the orphanage, yet still managed to maintain her moral compass.

As an Inspector in the Homicide Unit of the Paranormal Investigation Bureau, Blue fights for interbreed peace every day. She believes in this job with all her lonely soul. She both chases down those who perpetrate hate crimes against the supernatural breeds and stops those who use their powers to hurt innocents. Blue fights for what is right regardless of who is in the wrong!

Sometimes a deceptively soft nature can cover a spine of steel, and make no mistake, Blue has such a spine. She faces down a hate mob to apprehend a perpetrator who left an innocent bleeding and fighting for his life. She enters the fray with full knowledge of the danger to herself, and even when the hostile mob turns against her, she refuses to allow the deed to go unpunished. Later, she willingly sacrifices everything, even at the price of unbearable pain and on the point of death, to keep a dangerous power out of the clutches of a madman, for fear of the destruction it would cause in his hands. Blue has courage in spades!

This heroine also has a secret. She harbors a love for frilly lingerie, and she has plenty of it. Nevertheless, she covers it up with her standard work uniform and keeps it hidden by her discerning tastes. While she dearly wants to be loved, she is only willing to share this part of herself with the right person. Does the right person come along? Perhaps he has been here all the while. Regardless of what the different factions of humans believe about her, Blue knows her own self-worth and this makes her strong and sexy!


Jack’s eyes flick to Varg and then back to my face. He says in a grim tone, “You may not have been hurt, but another minute or two and you could have been dead.”

I lift up my chin and respond steadily, “All in the line of duty, Jack. I did what was right, and if you know me at all you should never expect less.”

I holster my gun and walk, head held high, back to my car with Varg trailing behind me and Jack watching my back.

The Light Who Shines When Paranormal Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime it's obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run. Using her innate sixth sense, she uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby. She soon discovers it acts as a key to an ancient Grimiore that was instrumental in the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the boundaries between Earth and the Plan of Fire.

Blue and her clever wolf Varg follow a trail that starts at the Cock and Bull Tap and leads all through the town of Crimson Hollow. Between being sidelined by a stalker who sticks to the shadows, and chasing a suspect who vanishes in thin air, the case is getting complicated. If that isn't enough, Dark Vampire activity hits a record high and hate crimes are increasing. However, it's her growing feelings for Jack Tanner, her magnetic Daylight Vampire boss, that just might undo her.

While Blue searches for clues to nail the perpetrator, it seems someone else is conducting a search of their own. Who will find whom first?

Danger lurks in every corner and Blue needs all her focus in this increasingly dangerous game or she risks ending up the next victim.
