Teenage Tessa and her friends should have been home and safe after being rescued from their vampire kidnappers. Instead, she wakes to find herself alone, Jared and Cody apparently snatched all over again…and she has no clue know who took them. Scared, pissed off and aware she's been a target all along, Tessa discovers she's been locked in a lab by those who want to tap into the latent genetic abilities in her vampire blood.

Caught in a dangerous maze, Cody knows he has to help his fellow captives, but all he wants to do is find Tessa. The connection growing between him and his best friend's sister has undeniably become the center of his universe. But any future they might have together is in jeopardy if they can't stop the Old World vampires from developing a blood farm they intend to fill with humans in stasis who will serve as their permanent feeding supply. The only ones standing against their evil plans to take over the world are Cody and Tessa's clan of peaceful vampires.

Jared is exhilarated to be free at last…but even as the distance between him and the blood farm he miraculously escaped from increases, he can't stop thinking about those still trapped there – the ones who helped him flee. Can he really walk away from what's happening? From the horror it portends? When he discovers something sub rosa that all but paralyzes him, he has no choice but to act on the knowledge…even if it means walking straight back into the hellish prison he narrowly escaped from.

Talon Lore, a former SEAL, has spent the last two years recovering from the damage done when his squad's truck drove over an antitank landmine. Six other team-mates were also badly hurt, the seventh dead, in what their team leader Badger Horley realized later had to be a trap set to take them out. After his best friend is run down, Talon realizes his murder ties in with the original incident that drove him and his squad hell-bent for revenge.

A year ago, Talon walked away from his girlfriend, Clary Witcher when she'd given him an ultimatum he couldn't win. Clary is the sister of his best friend killed in the hit-and-run. Determined to tell Clary in person that her brother's death was no accident and keep her safe from those now targeting her, Talon struggles with the haunting prospect of a reunion.

Clary has never forgotten and never forgiven herself for chasing the man she loved and still loves away with her stupid, take-it-or-leave-it threat. Her brother's death is a tragedy she's barely dealt with when Talon shows up with answers that only beg more questions. He won't leave her side, certain her brother wasn't the only target. But Clary has learned one thing from her time away from him: Love--not trouble--needs to be Talon's reason for staying with her…even if sending him away means jeopardizing her own life.

Sixteen-year-old Tessa comes from a family of ancient vampires with powerful abilities, but unfortunately she doesn't seem to have inherited anything exceptional. Instead, she's awkward and unsophisticated, never fitting in with her peaceful clan. When she makes the decision to join the human world, determined to find a way to belong. Everything goes wrong as an Old World vampire faction begins snatching humans right off the streets for their secret project. To right this horrible wrong, Tessa must tap into her own dormant genetic abilities…or die trying.

Book 4:Vampire in Deceit

Teenage vampire Tessa finds herself waging war against her own kind in order to protect those she loves and save people who can't save themselves…

Beaten down by constant attacks, Tessa is subsisting on little more than reserves that won't help her survive forever. Her only consolation is that she's never alone. Her help comes from those still outside, fighting the battle to save the world, as well as inside herself.

Kidnapped and injured, Cody struggles to find a way to escape and reunite himself with the girl whose connection to his heart, mind and soul grows continuously. Even as he dreams of sharing a life with Tessa, he knows the chances of survival are slim. One way or the other, the crux of his being has become the fact that he can't live without her.

Even at the risk of endangering his own life – yet again, human Jared refuses to leave his father and friends to their fate. This time, he has allies fighting alongside him. But are they who he thinks they are, or will trusting them prove to be the worst mistake he's ever made?

Uniting humans and good and bad factions of vampires, the war rages on in a deathmatch where only the fittest survive.

Book 5:Vampire in Defiance

Moltere's Mountain is on the verse of collapse with teenage vampire Tessa, her friends and family still inside. Tessa vows not to go down without a fight, nor to leave anyone behind. In a race to save everyone, time runs out…

Grounded with an injured wing, Cody wants the girl he loves to flee with him while they still can. But, in order to do that, they would need to abandon friends and family who are missing. Even as he fears the worst, the decision he doesn't want to be the one to make is taken from him.

Human teenager Jared has led an army into the mountain only to realize that the allies he's enlisted to help him against Old World vampires intent on enslaving the human race as a feeding source view the annihilation of allvampires – not just the bad ones – as the only recourse to put an end to the war. Fearing Tessa and Cody and their family and friends will be destroyed by the unstoppable army he's gathered, Jared isn't sure how to keep the land- mine he inadvertently created from blowing up in his face and taking out everyone he cares about in the process.

Book 6: Vampire in Conflict

With the blood farm an Old World faction of vampires had been developing to enslave the human race as a perpetual feeding source destroyed and those behind the evil plot either dead, caught or on the run, life returns to normal for teenage vampire Tessa.

After the war she and her family and friends narrowly intercepted, getting back into the groove of daily life proves to be impossible. She's different, as are all the people around her. Even the world itself feels off to her. If she ever really knew where she fit in, she's lost that sense of belonging after so much has happened to make existence in this place a little darker, a little colder.

Her only source of light is Cody, a vampire who's become more than her boyfriend. Cody is her soul-mate and the connection they share makes life – one lived together – more precious than it's ever been before.

Healing isn't any easier for the human Jared, who'd fought the war beside Tessa and Cody. Everywhere he goes, he seems to trip over dead bodies and people who can't seem to recover. Ian and Jewel are a mess, and David wants to help Jewel more than anything…even if it means undertaking something even he knows will violently shatter this newfound peace that's barely begun to settle.
