Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle–high school, peer pressure and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He’s smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa’s dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theatre and kidnap her date.


Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one.


Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is as well as what? 


Vampire in Distress

The youngest of his ancient line. Eighteen-year-old Cody descends from flyer vampires wants Tessa back at his side where she belongs – even as he struggles with conflicting emotions about his best friend's kid sister...


A human determined to protect his people. Seventeen year-old Jared thought his life was over then he finds out that his rescuers are vampires...how can he trust them? And then he finds out the truth about Tessa...and that she's been taken, too...


Three brave souls struggle as war breaks out around them...a war that shows them no mercy.


Vampire in Design


Left behind. Scared. And getting really pissed off.


Tessa and her friends were supposed to be on their way home. On their way to safety. Instead she wakes up alone, with her friends kidnapped. Targeted and hunted, Tessa goes on the attack, desperate to find her friends and family. But her attackers want her throwback genes and will do anything to have her locked down in their lab.


Caught in a dangerous maze, Cody is torn between helping his fellow captives and finding Tessa. He’s young to have the connection that’s growing between him and his best friend’s sister. But any future they might have is in jeopardy if they can’t stop the blood farm from taking over the humans…and his people.


Jared is free at last, but he can’t stop thinking about what he went through at the blood farm and those who helped him. Then he finds out something personal that so horrifying, he has to act…even if it means walking back into the place he swore to never return.


These three need to be strong…the war is far from over…and they are right in the middle of it.

A new cozy mystery series from USA Todaybest-selling author Dale Mayer. Follow gardener and amateur sleuth Doreen Montgomery—and her amusing and mostly lovable cat, dog, and parrot—as they catch murderers and solve crimes in lovely Kelowna, British Columbia.


Riches to rags. ... Chaos to more chaos. ... Fire destroys evidence. ... Or at least most of it!


Flush with success from solving a decade-old kidnapping case, Doreen can’t wait to find out what’s next in her one-woman crusade to clean up Kelowna’s cold crimes. But, before she can unearth another old case to sink her teeth into, she must tie up some loose ends from the last one.


Steve Albright, fixer for the local biker gang, has made it clear that he blames Doreen for sending his

friend Penny Jordan to prison. Steve even suggests that Doreen might have set up Penny Jordan. While Doreen wouldn’t do that, she’s afraid that other people might believe Steve. He’s a popular figure in town and has a lot of friends, many of whom Doreen doesn’t want to get any closer to than she must.


At least Steve doesn’t have his gun anymore, having dropped that in Doreen’s neighbor’s gardenia bed while she chased him from her yard. Which makes Doreen think that maybe it’s safe to dig into Steve’s past. Until she uncovers a connection to three arson cases from years ago and is warned off by Corporal Mack Moreau.


But Doreen’s never listened to Mack before, and it has all worked out thus far, so it’s not like she has to listen to him now. Right?

Ice wanted only one thing in her life, and that was Levi—and maybe someone who was a blend of both of them. When he asked her to marry him, she was thrilled, but now she’s struggling to pin down a wedding date for fear he’d been caught up in the moment and didn’t really want to go through with it. When the compound is attacked, and they are forced to go on the offense, she realizes what’s truly important.


Levi is infuriated that Ice refuses to set a wedding date. He’s always loved her, and there will never be anyone else for him. This fact is reinforced as they come under attack by a military group trying to overthrow a government that he aided.

As the bullets fly and the body count mounts, who says you can’t have your cake and your icing too!

This is a collection of 3 books in the Family Blood Ties series. These books are:


Vampire in Deceit


Hurt and hurting, Tessa wages war against her own as she tries to protect those she loves and save those that can’t save themselves.


Exhausted by the constant attacks, afraid for her friends and family, Tessa is driven to the ends of her reserves as she strives to beat back the never ending wave of war. Thankfully she’s never alone…inside or out.


Kidnapped and injured, Cody struggles to escape and find the girl whose connection to his heart, mind and soul is growing by the moment. The chances of them all surviving this chaos are slim…but he just knows he can’t live without her.


Jared is determined to help his father and friends. He can’t leave them alone to their fate, even when his own life becomes endangered…again. Only this time, he has allies on his side…or does he?


The war unites humans and vamps as the war ratchets higher to a survival of the fittest…but the people most deeply involved can’t take any more. And then they find out the worst… 


Vampire in Defiance


This was it. For Tessa. For Cody. For Jared. Her family. Her Friends.


Moltere’s Mountain is collapsing. With Tessa, her friends and family still inside. Tessa won’t go out without a fight…and she won’t leave the others behind. But as she races to save everyone, time runs out.


Grounded with an injured wing, Cody wants Tessa to leave while they still can. But most of their friends and family are missing. He wants to do the right thing and save them all…but it’s too late…


Jared had led the army into the mountain. Only to find they were looking to annihilate all vamps, not just the bad ones. He can’t leave his friends vulnerable to yet another attack. But the mine is a death trap. And he could be the one that ends up dead.


The pressure is on – to save friends, family, each other – only the enemy is just as determined that no one survives. 


Vampire in Conflict


The blood farm is gone. Those behind it have either died, been caught, or are on the run. Time to return to the real world.


Only normal life isn’t quite what Tessa expected. Good thing, because there is no ‘normal’ anymore. She’s different. Her family is different. Her friends are different. The world around her is different. Trying to find her place is not easy. She wants nothing more than to be a normal teenager and join Cody and his friends on a Friday night out.


Cody wants the trouble to be over so he can get back to living the life he used to with one major addition – Tessa.


Only Ian and Jewel aren’t healing well, Rhia is acting out of character, and Jared keeps tripping over dead bodies. Then there’s David, who’ll do anything to help Jewel… even something he knows he shouldn’t do.


Something is wrong, and once again it’s up to Tessa to figure out what is happening under the surface of this ‘normal’ life.
