Mixed Blessing (Mixed Blessing Mystery, Book 1) (Kindred, Book 6.5)
Georgia Deverall had no idea that creatures traversed the night, but now she has been pulled, kicking and screaming, into that night time world. Trusting no one and struggling to come to terms with all the new talents that have appeared, Georgia fights the Dark Shadow inside, all the while fighting her attraction for the one man who could have warned her, but didn't.

'His whole body jerked against mine, his arms tightened and a low growl mixed with a decidedly sexy moan came from the back of his throat. I could tell he was having an instant response to my biting him, I could feel exactly where his mind had taken the moment to. I gasped at his reaction, thinking this was having way more of an affect on him than me. And then the taste of his blood hit my tongue.'
Working as a bartender at the most popular club in town, dating a handsome, sexy and ever so slightly mysterious Englishman, Georgia thought her life was finally going somewhere. Then one night a rogue vampire caught her unawares, introducing her to a night time life she never knew existed. Almost killing her, whilst trying to turn her, she is saved by the most unexpected source. Her boyfriend's mistress, with a little help from a goddess. What transpires has never been accomplished before and now Georgia not only has to come to terms with her new persona and night time cravings, she must also accept how dangerous her world has become.
Trusting no one and finding it hard to forgive the one man who could have warned her, but didn't, Georgia fights to retain her humanity. All the while fighting her attraction for the one who let her down. New talents, a Dark Shadow within who threatens to take over, and a Master of the City who wants her to join his line. But there are more dangers than the vampires whose ranks she has just entered. Powerful and seductive fairies, who would just as easily steal your happiness, courage, your ability to love and hope, as well as your heart, exist and one shows an interest in Georgia.
And then there's the innocents, the Norms. Part of what makes Georgia other is filled with so much Light. Fighting to save those who cannot save themselves, trying to prove her best friend's cousin is innocent of murder and still feed the Dark Shadow inside, is harder than she ever thought possible. But with some hard and fast rules, an iron will and determination, plus abilities that make her a commodity to any who traverse the night time world, Georgia must find a way to remain true to herself and not give in to the seduction of the Dark.
But the Dark is so appealing and her vampire-within so strong. Can Georgia resist temptation, in all its glorious guises and still be true to her Light-filled side? As she'd say, this really sucks!
