I started reading Mercy Blade last night and on the 1st page she mentions Rick LaFleur.  For the life of me, I cannot remember who he is!  I don't have the books in the series anymore so I can't go back and find out.  Anyone care to tell me exactly who he is?

It has been a while but isn't he the cop she liked?  At least that is what I think.  She had an issue with a cop and also a vampire, didn't she?  I am looking forward to the next book, just haven't picked it up yet.  Enjoy.

Richard LeFleur was the undercover cop.  The guy with the motorcycle in Skinwalker.

LOL.  I don't know why I can't remember him.  Hmmm....  Didn't he go in with her when she went to kill the rogue vampire in the 1st book?  It's funny I can remember the vampire but not him.

He's in the hospital when she goes before the council.  Don't recall when he was hurt.  At the party?  Didn't he flirt with her at the beginning?

Okay I know who you're talking about in Skinwalker.  It's a little vague but at least its something.   When exactly do we find out Rick is an undercover cop?  I thought is was Blood Cross but I may be wrong.  I don't remember the party either.   Ack!  Why can't I remember this?  angry  It's so frustrating!!

You find out that he is undercover at the end of Skinwalker. He is the guy who at the very beginning of skinwalker, he is watching her while sitting on his bike. While she goes inside, he fiddles with her bike and gets zapped because of the wards.

He also broke into her house a time (or two?), is cousins with Katie's human servant (?), he did some legwork for her with finding property ownership records.

In Blood Cross he is working at the desk at the PD because he got hurt and his cover was blown. He walks her to the "supernatural record room (666?)" and locks her in.

Any of this help ring a bell?

He was hurt at that house...he doesn't even know that it was her that was there. She was in beast form I think.

She ran and left him there.

This is all from memory, so the details may not be exactly right.

He shows up on page one of Skinwalker.  And he uses the term "call for back up" rather than called 911 or an ambulance after he is injured, so Jane guesses.   He saw the saber tooth fight a mountain lion.  The vamp council confirms it by saying they are footing the medical expenses for the cop.  Sort of giving with nasty strings attached.  If Jody denied it, keeping his cover, then the cops would loose the medical expenses.

He is in Blood Cross as a cop.

I remember Rick a little more from Skinwalker than I do Blood Cross.  Don't know why that is but at least it's something.  It's just that from the first page in Mercy Blade Jane refers to him as her boyfriend and I had no clue who he was!  For me he was like a new character who popped up all of a sudden.  This has never happened to me before.  I guess he didn't make a big impression on me.  wink  Thanks for all the help ladies!

He didn't make a big impression on me, either. I haven't read #3, yet. I'm hoping to steal it in a swap.

But, I like the crazy, grief-stricken vampire (Leo?) a lot more. Their interactions seemed a lot more passionate...and the dude with the nice butt. What's his name? Leo's servant?

So do I, lol!  I was rooting more for him in Skinwalker than I did Rick.
