CreateSpace, 288 pages. $12

Vanessa wonders if there is more to life than small-town Maine. While she considers herself normal, she soon learns she is much, much more. After a long day of work, Vanessa finds herself driving the back roads toward home at an ease she shouldn’t allow. Accidentally hitting a fleeing, but extremely handsome young man, her whole life is turned around, as stated in a press release. 

Gabriel uses Vanessa’s guilt against her to allow him to open her up to a dark and mysterious world. Vanessa soon learns that the shadows in the dark are no longer of her imagination; vampires and other unknown demons lurk around every corner.

She slowly finds herself enthralled by Gabe’s smart-aleck ways and cannot get him off of her mind, even if he is Praesul.

Though love is blooming, vampires are still plotting their revenge…
