Bitten Book 1


As a vampire-hating psychic, Char should’ve seen it coming, but she didn’t. Too focused on creating a cure for vampirism after watching her father turned into a bloodsucking menace, she looks at little else, until it’s too late. Not her lab being attacked and destroyed, her life’s work being stolen along with her lab assistant, nor the attractive and dangerous vampire, Julian, who swoops in to save the day, give her a job and the chance to set things right.

But when her lost serum turns up on the streets used as a murder weapon against vamps, she’s forced to hide the truth about her involvement in its development from her new boss in order to join the investigation. As they work together, she’s inexplicably drawn to the very type of creature she should be terrified of. Suddenly, the idea of being bitten becomes a turn on if it’s Julian’s fangs at her pulse.

Forced to admit everything she thought she knew about the bloodsuckers was wrong, Char is left with a decision: Should she create an antidote to save the vampires being murdered—and possibly the one she’s falling for? Or should she finish what she started and try to cure the rest?

The wrong choice could mean a sacrifice she’s not willing to make.


Bitten Book 1


“Whatever this is brings out every primal instinct I have. You should go before I can’t stop myself from devouring you.” He caught my earlobe in his teeth at the end of his sentence, and I gave my weight entirely to the wall.

“Devouring sounds good,” I admitted, wondering if it was the champagne that was spiked and why it hadn’t had such an effect on me. Not that I could control myself around him anyway.

Skimming his lips across my flesh to my mouth, Julian didn’t have to coax me to open to him. His velvet tongue stroked mine in a languid dance that made me thrust my hips shamelessly forward to grind against him. Despite his obvious desire, he pulled out of the kiss and held my face.

“I don’t mean that kind of devour.”
