Vlad the Impaler? Don’t make her laugh…
Vlad is un-living proof that even a shy guy with the unfortunate name of Leslie can remake himself. Vampire, cad, player, he embraces it all without a pesky thing called a conscience. Until he receives a “special delivery” on his doorstep. A woman on the brink of death. One look at the sexy blonde, and his inner Leslie—his long-forgotten conscience—moves him to do the right thing and save her life.
One minute Jaelyn is enjoying a night out at a club. The next, she’s under a brutal vampire attack. Adjusting to her new life as one of them is hard enough without the added charm of Vlad’s grumpiness with the whole situation.
Instead of sending Jaelyn on her merry way, Vlad gives in to another totally uncharacteristic urge—to solve the mystery of who assaulted her, and why whoever it was dumped her at his place. There must be a connection, and it surely can’t have anything to do with their budding attraction.
But delving into a dangerous vampire underworld could remake their undead lives once again. Permanently.
Who wants a dead girl littering their stoop? Vlad sure as heck doesn’t. Someone made a late-night snack out of this chick, and it wasn’t him. More disturbing is why the heck they left her on his doorstep? He didn’t want to be a sire, and he certainly couldn’t call the cops—they didn’t deal nicely with creatures like him. Should he just close the door, pretend he didn’t see her and let her die? Or take her inside and upset his pleasantly uncomplicated life. Decisions, decisions.
