Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Whitfield's job description. Protecting her precious cargo from midflight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire.Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Ophelia Lambert, 400-year-old vampire princess and college freshman, suddenly finds herself domesticated by humans and forced to suffer the indignities of dorm rooms, communal bathrooms, and a roommate with sticky fingers.As one of the hundreds of undead venturing into postsecondary education, Ophelia has a lot more to learn that just "undead studies" - she has to learn to get along with her fellow vampire classmates and, worst of all, her human ones.
Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission.
Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state.
She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position.
Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.
But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help. James, living in Nocturne Falls also means a fresh start.
And as soon as her unbearable ex signs the divorce papers, that new beginning will be a reality.
Unfortunately, her ex doesn't seem ready to let her go and the subtle threats he's been making leave her no choice but to confide in her oh-so-handsome neighbor, who just happens to be a deputy with the sheriff's department. He's also a panther shifter, a secret he's sworn to keep.
The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....
Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like.
Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life.
Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else.
