FK Recommendation January 2011  
What's Good?  To kick off the new year in the recommendation-of-the-month project, I'm pleased to get to feature Jean G.'s "No Requiem" (1999, PG-13, ~8K words).  This brisk story begins with a traditional Nick/Natalie "happy ending" as an AU sequel to "The Fix," but soon shelves the romance to pitch the characters into an action-driven drama.
      Natalie opened her mouth to scream, only to utter a surprised yelp when she was suddenly pulled violently aside. A feral growl drove all four vampires back, and they hissed their displeasure at this intrusion. LaCroix released the viselike grip that had yanked her free and snarled at her as well. "You take foolish risks, Dr. Lambert."
      There was no denying that...

Thanks again for the recommendation. Another story I missed reading before. I enjoyed reading it.

I'm glad it worked for you! Thanks for telling me. (Jean's writing has been prolific, reliable, and frequently plot-driven; knowing your preference for plots, I think you may enjoy more of her stories.)

I thought I had read all of her stories, but your recommendation showed that I obviously did not. I know I enjoyed her "Darkest Knight" series which is set pre-season 1.
