In a world where vampires are real, blood is a financial asset and sex mixed with blood commands the highest price.
Danson is in desperate need of cash for her ailing mother and when she
has the opportunity to join the shadow world of blood courtesans, she
jumps before she looks. Soon she's sharing a bed with the handsome
Kristos Anastos, but then bullets start to fly and she finds herself
running for her life.
Kristos assumes the attack stems from his
enemies hoping to destroy him, but it quickly becomes clear that Myra is
the real target. Worse, she's falling in love with Kristos, but is the
sexy vampire friend or foe?
Blood is money and Myra's may be
worth the most of all. A past she never knew existed has come to claim
her and she'll be lucky if she only ends up dead.

of humor. I thought of quoting her but honestly couldn't narrow down
which quotes I liked most and realized I would be practically quoting
the whole book. She definitely had me cracking up. And the sex
My only complaint about this
book was the length; that it was short and I didn't get the whole story.
But, seeing as I already have the second book on my kindle, I can't
complain too much. ;)
The author has amazing talent for being
able to pack so much into a short a book and give it the feel of a
longer story. I didn't feel like things were rushed and that things were
overlooked or sacrificed. I can't wait to read more books by her.
