Mailbox Monday

Good morning everyone. :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Did you watch True Blood last night? Oh my! I am without words....

Here is a book I received last week.

Book Blurb:

Bodyguard Celia Graves plies her trade in a world where vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown and movie stars openly practice witchcraft, where street corner psychics have real powers and cops use memory enhancement spells on witnesses. An ordinary human, Celia relies on street smarts and charmed weapons to protect the rich and famous from mortal and supernatural threats.

She's landed a plum job protecting the prince of a small but politically vital nation while he tours Los Angeles's least savory hot spots. But what should be a routine assignment goes badly wrong: Celia is attacked by a master vampire and knows she is about to die.

To her shock, Celia wakes on a cold metal table in a university lab. Celia Graves has become an Abomination, neither fully mortal nor fully vampire. Her "master" is hunting her, to destroy her or finish what his bite began. She's accused of murder, and the cops aren't sure whether she should be locked up or staked. And then there's the demon she glimpsed during the vampire attack...

Struggling to cope with her new powers and trying not to terrify everyone she meets with a flash of fang. Celia reaches out for help from her once (and future?) lover, a powerful mage; his warrior-priest brother; a handsome werewolf who keeps his lupine nature concealed from the world; an elderly clairvoyant; and one trustworthy cop.

Celia Graves has three days to save the world, her sanity, and her soul.

I wonder what a near vampire eats ... or if she has the same weaknesses as a vampire :-)

Kah Woei,

I was wondering the same thing. :) I may have to move this one up in the line. :)


I love the cover too. I hope the book is as good as the blurb. :)


I think the sequel is due out in September and then the third in March. I'm hoping they're keepers. :)

Thanks for stopping by ladies.
