Vampire Elizabeth was looking for a distraction when she took a job on the isolated estate of scientist Dr. Owen Bennett. Expecting him to be an eccentric old man, the Doctor, turns out to be a lot younger than expected and sparks fly. As Liz struggles with her past and a possible future with Owen, she realizes that things around the Bennett compound aren’t quite adding up.

Suspecting that Dr. Bennett might be a vampire, she begins to search for evidence. However, the more she learns, the more questions she has. To add to the mystery, the doctor’s wife has seemingly vanished, he’s tight-lipped about who they work for, and his research is kept under lock and key.

When the pieces finally come together, Elizabeth is faced with a secret that could have serious repercussions for all Moroi vampires. Could she be on the wrong side?

Now that she’s found the second life she's been searching for, can Elizabeth find her way through this web of secrets and lies or will they be the downfall of it all?

EXCERPT 3

I could barely function normally, not having fed in so long.
I was keeping my distance in the classroom and sucking down water and Coke Zero like there was no tomorrow, when Becca got a papercut on her finger.
My head jerked up as if by force at the smell of blood.
“Ahhheeeeee!” A loud, high-pitched cry came from Becca, along with fat tears streaming down her pink cheeks.
I braced myself behind my desk and took in gulping breaths of air, forcing myself to not breathe through my nose.
However, all of my attempts to keep away were for nothing, when Becca charged toward me, droplets of crimson liquid welling on her fingertip.
There was no hesitation, I popped the little digit into my mouth.
As soon as I did it, regret flooded me. Well, regret and the beautiful honey taste of her blood.
When I came to my senses, Becca was standing before me, eyes round and glossy. She was mesmerized. I had enthralled her.
At least I didn't bite her or anything as stupid as that.
Stunned at what I'd done, I pulled her hand from my mouth, and the cut healed before our eyes.
My little angel looked at me wide-eyed, saying nothing. Her blood sang to me, and I hid my fangs behind a closed-lip smile.
Turning the small girl around, I compelled her, "Nothing happened. You thought you cut yourself, but you didn't. You're okay." My voice was soft. I smoothed down a few stray hairs on her head. "You don't want to come near me today. You don't know why but you are interested in whatever Flor and Elaine are doing, not me. Today, you're bored with me."
I breathed in a shaky breath and had to force myself to let her go, my hands clenched, fingernails leaving half-moon impressions in my palms.
Jack stood with his back to us, humming to himself.

My mouth watering, I swallowed and looked at the ceiling where the fan rotated slowly.
