Winning the demon war was the easy part. Rebuilding the Empire is a nightmare.

Two years after the war, wealthy commoner Tia Samos comes to a backwater barony hunting for a suitable highborn husband. She finds an impoverished province stalked by a monster straight out of legend. Still, the baron is decent enough, so she decides to linger a bit – then matters go from ‘bad’ to ‘terrifying.’

Fortunately, she has her knightly protector Sir Peter Cortez, and her oafish carriage driver Kyle for protection. But even they might not be a match for the evil stalking the countryside…

After Dark – The Vampire Next Door Book Two

In Night Home: The Vampire Next Door Volume I, the fact that vampires truly exist was almost accidentally made public when a story presented as fiction seemed all too real to an amateur vampire hunter, who at the end, was made to remain silent about the secrets he discovered. But it doesn’t end there: the tale circulates as far as the west coast, where a small community of vampires have been quietly hiding; and to them, also, this story is too close to reality to be just a fantasy. But while they take the time to decide whether to attempt contact with their own kind so far away, they have their own local problems to deal with. A savage and barbaric serial killer, suspected of being a vampire, lurks in their own city, stalking the innocent at night. Will the vampires be able to stop the killer before they are blamed for his acts of extreme horror? And that’s not all. A beautiful yet tragic and suicidal young woman wanders like a lost angel from out of the darkness and into their midst, hoping a vampire will make her end swift and easy.
