In the Name of Blood

Book I

Vampires are Relative

Riley Austin believes life is predictable. That is, until she helps her friend, Tony, catch the kidnapper of three little boys. While using her sixth sense to find the missing kids, she and Tony are attacked and Riley is taken by Julian, a vampire, who wishes to use her gift for his own purposes.

When he asks for her assistance, Riley discovers a kindred spirit in Julian. Moreover, she discovers that an insane, power-hungry vampire called Wilhelm is at the center of many disappearances. A bond grows between Julian and Riley and is strengthened when she saves his life. For her own protection, Julian returns her to the safety of the mortal realm.

What Julian does not realize is that Riley was never going to remain safe...

Critical Acclaim from Readers:

"All right, the pitch has vampires in it but they're grown up vampires for grown up people, one of the few on this [Authonomy] site."

"I like the classic feel of a crime novel in a vampire story."

"Seriously hot stuff. These are vampires the way they were meant to be."

"What I did like most about this is your ability to bring something new to the vampire genre."

"This is an exciting story. Fast-paced yet descriptive writing. Great, snappy dialogue."

"I enjoyed you taking me through this classic tale with a great spin on it."

"Excellent opening. Your dialogue flows naturally (I appreciated the Munsters reference ;D)."
