“Dangerous, sexy, and gripping!” ~InD’tale Magazine

When a rogue vampire group emerges from the shadows to enslave mortals, research scientist Cerissa Patel is the only one with an inside track to stop them.

The catch – she must go undercover in a vampire-controlled town where an assassin is on the loose and everyone is a suspect, including herself.

Worse, she must ignore her growing attraction to vampire Henry Bautista. He’s rich, dangerous, and as complex as the wines he makes, and he will do anything to stop her from hurting the community he built.

With Henry watching her every move, she must uncover who’s behind the rogue vampires and stop the assassin before Henry discovers what’s hidden beneath her skin…

“Sensual, sophisticated and sinfully addictive!” ~InD’tale Magazine

Research scientist Cerissa Patel has only one desire: to feel her lover’s fangs slip into her neck for the very first time. Once they become blood mates, no one can keep them apart.

But it’s never that easy.

Cerissa’s relationship with vampire Henry Bautista violates a centuries-old law, and the town council wants her banned from their secret community. If they have their way, she’ll be separated from Henry forever.

As if that isn’t enough, Henry is still in danger. The would-be assassin lies in a coma, and Cerissa is no closer to knowing who targeted Henry—or why.

To make matters worse, her own people forbid her from becoming a vampire’s mate. They aren’t sure what Henry’s bite will do to her and want her focused on her original mission: tracking down the vampires behind a ruthless movement to enslave mortals.

Against these odds, Cerissa must find a way to bond with the man who holds her heart, and do so without paying the ultimate price – the loss of her wings forever…

“Tempting, spellbinding and absolutely enchanting!” ~InD’tale Magazine

At last, the leader of the rogue vampires is in jail, and Dr. Cerissa Patel is in the arms of the man she loves and safe to dream about a future together—

—until an assassin strikes again.

Tigisi Anderson, the vampire community’s chief of police, suspects a traitor is feeding confidential information to the conspirators and suggests they use Cerissa’s lover—vampire Henry Bautista—as bait to flush out the assassin.

Cerissa hates the idea. She will stop at nothing to protect the man she loves, but her duty to put an end to the conspirators’ goal to enslave mortals—and Henry’s bravery—pushes her to take the risk.

Not like she could stop him once he’s made up his mind. Henry is determined to do what he must to unmask the traitor.

But the heartbreaking demons from Henry’s past—demons he must confront before he can tie his life to Cerissa’s forever—threaten to distract him from their mission and, in the process, could cost the life of a loved one…

Everyone has a secret fantasy—even a rich and powerful vampire…

Vampire Henry Bautista can’t contain his excitement. The circus is coming to town. As a child in the 1800s, he dreamed of starring in the center ring. As an adult, he remains enamored with the death-defying acts performed under the big top.

But when a close friend on the show is seriously injured in the arena, Henry ignores his own safety and rushes to the rescue.

Cerissa Patel is aghast over the accident—or was it an intentional attack? The last thing she wants is for her fiancé to take over his friend’s dangerous act.

With protestors marching in front of the tent, suspicious injuries occurring on the show, and a possible saboteur lurking among the performers, Cerissa can’t stand the thought of Henry stepping into the limelight. She loves him too much to take any risk with his life.

As the attacks continue to happen, Henry and Cerissa must come to terms over which is more important—his love for her, or his love for the circus…

Even a vampire can’t stop Mother Nature…

Henry and Cerissa’s long overdue engagement party is off to a joyous start. As they sweep across the dance floor, eyes locked on each other and hearts overflowing with love, they believe nothing can stand in the way of their happiness.

But when an employee of Henry’s winery threatens to expose Henry’s vampire nature to the world, and Mother Nature hits them with a wallop that could destroy his business, the couple’s future comes under fire.

Henry is afraid to tell Cerissa about the financial threats he faces—being a man raised in the 1800s means he must solve his problems himself. Still, he could really use her help.

Cerissa knows something is wrong. But as a Lux angel, her relationship experience is limited, and her instinct to fix things only makes matters worse.

As disaster after disaster shakes them, will their relationship survive, or will their love go up in flames?
