Vampire Metta Blautsauger is known as the family airhead and she works hard to keep up the façade. It's the perfect cover as she goes from dispensing her own brand of justice as a vigilante to an agent for Orcus, the Nosferatu shadow agency.
Captured, tortured, and left for dead, she is forced to leave both the agency and Lucas O'Cuinn, the mentor she's grown to love.
For the last century she's struggled with regret and boredom. Then her life is given new meaning when four mortal ministers ask her help in stopping a human trafficking ring. If Orcus discovers her unsanctioned involvement, they will brand her as a rogue. The penalty is death. It's only a matter of time before Lucas arrives—stake in hand.
Lucas O'Cuinn has waited ninety-eight years for Metta's return and he's run out of patience. It's time she remembers she belongs to him.

Author R.E. Mullins creates a world filled with vampires in The Blautsaugers of Amber Heights series. As the third book in the series, A VAMPIRE TO BE RECKONED WITH focuses on Metta Blautsauger.
The author took an unusual approach with the storyline, making Metta a savior of the less fortunate rather than following the stereotypical vampires as the root of all evil. It was refreshing to see a paranormal story with this kind of storyline development.
As the story unfolds, Metta has been reactivated into service, but it falls on her former mentor, Luke Quinn, to deliver the news. Since they parted on less-than-friendly terms, the stage is set for sparks to fly.
Add some intrigue and drama as good battles evil. When you add an exceptionally strong female vampire to the mix, then you can easily tell where the title came from.
In order to fully understand the political structure within the story, it might be best to start with the first book in the series. This one works as a standalone, but it would have been more enjoyable with a firm grasp on the back story.
