Paranormal/ spy thriller by Christopher Farnsworth, first in series. Vampire Nathanial Cade is bound by a blood oath to serve the President of the United States. Cade is called in to protect the United States from the things that go bump in the night. Superficial, cocky Zack Barrows is assigned, against his will as Cade's handler. This series is similar to a Robert Ludlum, or Lee Child, with a supernatural twist. Very entertaining. I went out and picked up books 2 and 3 before finishing this one. Worth a credit.
A different take on the super romantic vampire that's been becoming popular lately. A good read.
From back cover:
Zach Barrows is a cocky, ambitious White House employee working his way toward becoming the youngest chief of staff in history. But Zach's political rise takes an unexpected turn when he's abruptly transferred out of the White House and partnered with Nathaniel Cade, a secret agent sworn to protect the president. But Cade is no ordinary civil servant.
Bound 140 years ago by a special blood oath, Nathaniel Cade is a vampire. On the orders of the president he defends the nation against enemies far stranger--and more dangerous--than civilians like Zach could ever imagine. And as a new threat looms, Zach has to learn to work with his undead partner, because the president's vampire is the only thing standing between the American dream and total Armageddon.
