elia Graves is a bodyguard in the paranormal world, hired to protect the rich and famous. Even though she is human, she deals with vampires, psychics, even the odd demon.

- not fully vampire, but not human either. As time goes on Celia realizes she has supernatural powers, pale skin and of course fangs. To make matters worse, she is wanted by the police.
ighting for her sanity, Celia learns that her best friend Vicki died at the same time she was bitten. Was this a coincidence? And the vampires who attacked them are coming after her - they either want her dead, or to fully change her. She desperately needs to talk to someone who will understand. The only one who comes to mind is a werewolf, her hot ex-lover. She needs help.

is hard to put down once you start on the adventure.
