Running in the Dark by Inger Iversen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
He is known only as Trace—because he leaves no trace of his victims behind.
A deadly Russian slayer, Trace’s life has always revolved around death. Death, and preventing humankind from learning about the legendary creatures of the night. But now his position as a Watcher has become a prison, and dealing death for the Vampire Nation isn’t as prestigious as he once believed it to be.
College dropout Bessina Darrow has witnessed things she isn’t permitted to see, a simple case of wrong place at the wrong time putting her life in danger. When Bessina becomes his new mark, Trace is prepared to eliminate her—until he discovers a way out for them both.
Protecting Bessina means defying the leaders of the Nation, an act that has them both running for their lives. The more Trace fights to disappear from danger, the more he unravels the secrets crafting his world—secrets he must unveil in order to finally save a life, instead of destroy it. Okay , I can do that.

I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Even if it weren't for the gorgeous cover (in which you have an amazing model) I would still read the book. Although at first I thought that it had to do only with werewolves, there is a plethora of paranormal creatures in this story. Trace and Bessina try to survive together in a world full of enemies with lots of hidden secrets and sizzling romance.
I liked both of them, but mostly I liked how the heroine was a dark skinned woman. We don't see many of them in both of YA and NA and for that the books wins points.
If you like a paranormal novel for the NA audience then this is for you. :)
