Celia Graves is a human in a dangerous profession. She’s a bodyguard. This is a world of vampires and magic among other myths come to life. When she’s offered a job guarding a rich son of a country’s ruler, she takes it. However, once she arrives she finds that all the parameters of the job have been changed and it is too late to back out once someone makes a grab for the client. She’d always know that someday she might end up losing her life protecting a client but this time she doesn’t die – she becomes an abomination neither fully vampire but no longer human either. From official release/information:
Product Description: Bodyguard Celia Graves has definitely accepted her share of weird assignments, both human and supernatural. But her newest job takes the cake. Guarding a Prince from terrorists and religious fundamentalists is hard enough, but it seems like the entire supernatural world is after this guy too. When she is betrayed by those she is employed to help, and everything goes horribly wrong, Celia wakes to find herself transformed.
