book blurb

Not all vampire hunters dress in head-to-toe leather and sit on rooftops overlooking a gritty vampire-ridden city. Meet Delia Roberts. At twenty-six, she’s a mid-level hunter with the Harriswood League, and, despite her best efforts, isn’t scaling the hunter hierarchy anytime soon.

Months earlier, desperate to prove herself, Delia snuck into an exclusive vampire masquerade, only to wind up with a bite on her neck courtesy of clan leader and gorgeous vampire Claude Grimm. Fearful of the League’s punishment for succumbing to a bloodsucker’s charms, Delia does what she can to hide the bite and pretends the night never happened.

These days, however, Claude is determined to win her over, insisting the spark they felt that fateful night is worth pursuing. As Delia tries to ignore her steadily growing feelings for the enemy and fend off a mounting quarter-life crisis, vampire clan tensions worsen around the quiet city of Harriswood, bringing with them a danger unlike any the League has ever seen.

One that might change the course of history for good.





I've been waiting for this book at reading the short story The Fool. What I really liked about this story was that Delia was so relatable. She was at a crossroads in her life and wasn't sure what path she should take. Who hasn't doubted themselves and their career choices? She didn't have everything figured out and she was a hot mess at times. Then you enter in Claude who is a no nonsense bad ass Vampire King. I loved how he didn't take Delia being hot and cold. He told her how he felt and what he expected if they would be together. I love a man, well, Vampire who can take control. The storyline with the league and vampires took me some time to get into because it felt a little slow. Once it picked up I couldn't put the kindle down. Delia doesn't know who to trust and has been put in a horrible position. We have some unexpected events that happened in the book and I didn't see those coming at all. I'm glad the author went a different route to make the plot interesting. I can't wait for the conclusion in The Queen.

Blurb: Finding my best friend and getting the hell out of California is top priority. Especially as the relationship with my rockstar stepbrother becomes more complicated with each passing day...

I’m on the tour bus partying!

The text from my best friend, Ivy, is one of her last. When weeks stretch with no further contact, I travel to L.A. to track down the band known as Rageon and find Ivy.

My ex-stepbrother, Gage, a musician who’s just come off tour invites me to crash at his place.

The last time I saw Gage in person, we were teens. He's everywhere on social media, so I’m prepared for the tattoo-covered rocker who answers my knock. What I’m not expecting to find is the sweet, s…
