The bounty on his head is worth more money than I’ll ever make, and […]

The owner isn’t really a vampire, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. And suddenly I’m neck deep in a world I’ve never really believed in, no matter what my crazy Great Aunt Mabel used to say. Seriously, I have more than enough drama in my life already, without adding an irresistibly mesmerizing nightclub owner to the mix. My boss—a man with a penchant for trouble […]

Second, my new assignment has pitted me against […]
