Charity hasn’t had it easy. Growing up in a bad part of Chicago, left by her mother at 16, she’s a survivor. So when she gets a scholarship to a good college out in California, she thinks all her dreams have come true.
Instead she falls head first into a nightmare.
At a posh party she doesn’t belong, she gets the shock of her life: vampires and shifters are real! Magic is real. And she is anything but a mundane poor kid just trying to make it.
Warrior runs in her blood. If only she knew how to use it.
Suddenly, she is trapped between two magical super powers – a cunning elder vampire who wishes to use her for her blood ties and maybe tie her to the bed, and a sexy alpha shifter who will protect her at all costs.
Her life of surviving never could’ve prepared her for this. And if she doesn’t learn to harness the fae magic running through her blood, she’ll be imprisoned forever.
Action, humor, and romance – we’re going back to the DDVN World!
