Keri Arthur- Embraced by Darkness (book 5)

Part vamp, part werewolf, Riley Jenson plays by her own rules, whether it’s her stormy love life or her job as a guardian. But when her family’s alpha male demands that she solve the mystery of a vanished girl, Riley can feel a trap closing in around her. Because the job comes with a catch: if Riley fails, her own mother will die.
Now the stakes are raised, the hunt is on...and when more women vanish, Riley is caught between a lover who demands that she give up her work, a serial killer who knows no boundaries, and a club where humans and supernaturals mix—at their own peril. Thrust into a realm of seduction and violence unlike any she could have imagined, Riley has to battle to save everything she holds dear. But the ultimate hunt has only just begun....
There is more focus on plot and character and less emphasis in this book. The book starts with Riley on vacation on an island to recover from all the events of the last year. She is contacted there by a member of her former pack who demands that she looks into the disappearance of a pack member, Adrienne, and threatens to hurt her mother if she doesn't. Shortly afterwards the Directorate ask her to look into the strange murder of a woman who appears to have been torn limb from limb by her fiancé. Riley works on both investigations at the same time, also finding herself under attack from an unknown, dealing with old memories from her pack and trying to make sense of her relationship with Kellen who wants to 'go solo'. Riley is unsure if she can "go solo" and obviously still has feelings for Quinn (who doesn't appear in this book after what happened in the last book). I was very upset at how this book ended, but since I've read the entire series, I'm understand why it had to end this way.
