Anna Strong is still struggling to maintain her humanity in spite of the fact that she's now a vampire. She's had to make a lot of accommodations in order to blend in but, so far, things are working out. That is until her partner's ex-or-not-so-ex-girlfriend, Gloria, hires Anna to protect her from a blackmailer. Her family inherits a French vineyard and wants her to move to France with them. And a Alpha-female werewolf has shown up claiming to be the wife of Avery, the master vampire who Anna killed inheriting all his property -- Anna's willing to sign it all over to the wife but…the wife would rather fight -- most likely to the death. From official release/information:
From publicity material: Anna Strong was first mentored by Avery, a very wealthy vampire with a talent for betrayal. Now that he's dead (really dead), Anna learns that she's entitled to his vast fortune. Suddenly, a female werewolf comes forward claiming to be Avery's estranged wife, and she's demanding the inheritance. Anna has no problem handing over the fortune except somehow the beneficiary turns out to be Anna's human family. Now, Anna must protect her loved ones from a vengeful werewolf and determine who is setting them up before the ruthless werewolf's patience runs out.
