In Blood Song, Celia Graves was bitten by a vampire, but help came before she could be turned. She now resides between her vampire urges and her humanity. Many want her locked away before she can do any harm and they're willing to force the issue. Celia is doing everything she can to prove that she’s in control of her new vampire urges and should be allowed the freedom to live and continue her business. But, and isn’t there always a but, some are willing to give their lives to have her killed or imprisoned. From official release/information:
From back of book: Bodyguard Celia Graves plies her trade in a world where vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown, street-corner psychics have real powers, and cops use memory enhancement spells.
A recent vampire attack made her an Abomination--and she was still adjusting to this new "lifestyle" when she discovered that the vampire attack awakened a hidden part of her heritage. It seems Celia is part Siren, able to enthrall men...and enrage women...without half trying.
She's been summoned to the Sirens' island for what might be a battle to the death--assuming she's not killed before she can make the trip.
Celia Graves has more than one enemy. Some of them want her blood. Some of them want her soul. All of them want her dead.
