Psychologist Kris Marlowe doesn't believe in vampires, until a silver-tongued rogue rises out of a coffin at dusk, introduces himself as Sir John Falstaff, and hypnotizes her into letting him taste her blood.

Kris's best friend Vi, who writes vampire romances, jumps at the chance to interview a real vampire. Fellow psychologist and paranormal cult expert Bram von Helsing also would love to meet an actual vampire. Kris remains skeptical, thinking she's just encountered one of San Francisco's many sanity-challenged individuals.

Then in an attack of spine-tingling horror a horde of murderous monsters descend on the San Francisco neighborhood. Faced with creatures that kill with a single glance, Kris and everyone she cares about must fight for their lives. But how?

In this dark fantasy with urban paranormal attitude, the only chance of survival for Kris and her friends is to seek help from the biggest bad boy in tavern-haunting history, who once drank ale and now drinks only blood—Sir John Falstaff, undead and misbehaving in San Francisco.

Kat Chanter isn't your ordinary girl. And she isn't your ordinary vampire, either. The ruthless Directorate would go to any lengths to have her power – including murder. And when that leads to a war between races, Kat's fate becomes the ultimate prize ...

Kat is done with being on the run, or so she hopes. A new pathology job in Paris is her big chance to start afresh, far from the Tabérin Directorate who want her dead. Sure, adjusting to life as a half-vampire, half-human hybrid in transition poses its own challenges, but it's nothing Kat can't handle...until the past starts to catch up with her.



When she's approached by one Tabérin male from her past, she can explain it away. But add in another territorial Tabérin with a newfound conscience and it's starting to get crowded on Kat's Montmartre window ledge. Past experience tells Kat to be cautious, especially in her vulnerable state. But how can she tell friend from foe?

Perfect for fans of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, this intriguing urban fantasy follows the story of Kat Chanter, who discovers that the world she knows is controlled by ancient creatures who feed on blood. And she might just be one of them ...

Lately things have been getting weird for pathology technician Kat Chanter. She's been craving raw meat, and having dreams so realistic they're scary. When she accepts a job offer from the prestigious Hema Castus Research Institute, she hopes she'll have the chance to discover what's wrong with her, but instead, her move to New York thrusts her headlong into a treacherous hidden world, where the wrong move could be fatal . . .



Tarot, witchcraft and astrology all take on a frightening resonance in Dark Child's richly imagined alternative reality where vampiric beings live among us, hidden by magic. Dark romance tangles with paranormal fantasy and page-turning suspense in this enthralling tale of 'dark child' Kat Chanter, half human and half vampire, who has woken an ancient prophecy and must face a formidable destiny.

In her dreams, she craved fresh blood. Warm human blood. And her incisors were long, sharp – able to bite through a fragile layer of skin with ease. What sort of monster does that make me?

Kat discovers that her presence in Paris isn't such a secret anymore. But if she has to battle the Directorate again, it seems she'll have much more support this time. Some of it from the most unlikely sources.

Meanwhile, teenage loner Ben discovers that he has much more in common with Yara Fortes, the girl of his dreams, than he ever hoped. But in a cruel twist of fate, the shared secret that links them together could also get them killed.
