As a psychic FBI agent, I always get the bad guy--until I'm assigned a Dracula copycat case that bites back. 
Getting my man this time means entering a mysterious underworld where, not every serial killer is human, not every case can be solved, and not everyone can survive.

Standalone urban fantasy novel. No cliff hanger.


The most innocent things could hold more darkness than I ever wanted to see.

Today's example: Takeout.

What could be so terrible about takeout? Normally, it was awesome. I lived on the stuff. I read the menus like the bible. But this wasn't that kind of takeout.

I stared at the Styrofoam containers on the table. My stomach was already cringing, looking for a place to hide. The containers gleamed virgin white under the fluorescent lights of the FBI conference room, but their contents were not quite so pure.

Each carton had a handwritten label on top. One read, Marion--bright and charming. Another read Stacey--good body. The last, Eileen--agreeable.

The writing was large with strong vertical strokes and half-closed loops. I wondered what a handwriting analyst would make of it.

Was there a particular flourish that indicated someone was a cannibal?

About the author

 NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author Michelle Fox lives in the Midwest with her husband, kids, the occasional exchange student and one very hyper puppy. She loves fantasy and romance, which makes writing paranormal romance and urban fantasy a natural fit. Occasionally, she goes through a maverick phase and writes contemporary romance.

In her spare time, she's been known to shake her bon-bon at Zumba, watch the news like she's a pundit (she's not), make spectacular cheesecakes, hoard vintage costume jewelry, and eat way too much ice cream (Ben and Jerry’s Karamel Sutra for the win!).

A dragon meets spontaneous human combustion...

Adara Brenton thinks she's an average girl: single and dreaming of romance. Also? In need of a job. As it turns out, horking up fireballs at work is the fast track to unemployment.

Yes. Fireballs.

See, in her family, spontaneous human combustion is genetic...like red hair, only, you know, fatal, and now it's her turn to burn.

Endre Felman has lived deep inside a mountain for centuries, adding to his hoard and looking for his mate. Meeting Adara before she goes up in smoke gives him hope, but convincing her dragons are real, that he's the dragon of her heart, and keeping her alive through what's to come proves to be more difficult than he ever imagined.

In the end, they may both burn to ash because no dragon lives forever without love.

~*~ EXCERPT~*~

He leaned close, his mouth by my ear, his breath tickling my neck. "When we're done with the next kiss, you won't even remember your name."

I moved back and arched an eyebrow. "Oh really?"

"It only gets hotter from here."

I swallowed.

"And the kiss after that, you'll be begging me, Adara."

"For what?" I whispered the question.

"For what only I can give you." Endre came close again, and I tried to back away, but found the cave at my back. He crowded me, forcing me into the jagged rock wall. "After this, I don't think we'll be able to stop at just kissing, do you?"

"We can't just fall into bed together. That's crazy."

"No. Not crazy. It's the magic of fate and fire. I'll play by your rules for now, but keeping me at a distance doesn't change anything. I'm yours and you're mine. Our flames will rise as one someday."
