About Alex Owens
Born in the Deep South and raised right over the Mason Dixon line, Alex grew up feeling unsure where she belonged. That is, until she met up with a traveling Freak Show one fine day. Now she celebrates the unusual and appreciates how interesting life can be when you (ahem) open yourself to unique situations.
Residing in coastal Virginia, Alex spends her days wrangling words and children, and on occasion a sassy cat (or three), a bull-headed Labrador, or her old, cantankerous horse. Her husband has figured out that toeing the line is easiest in the long run. He’s a smart man.

and a bonus novella from Caroline Peckham - A Game of Vampires (A Vampire Games Prequel Novella)
Claire's trapped in a dead-end marriage, strapped for cash and getting desperate. Her chance at freedom comes in the form of a music con in Florida. Her mission? Win over a few big clients and collect a fat bonus check. It should have been easy, but Claire didn't count on a bewitched violin, its sultry Italian owner, Bette, or her dark and dangerous companions.
Unfortunately, life isn't all song lyrics and seduction. Tied to darkness by blood and power, Claire must harness her abilities if she has any hope of surviving this business trip from hell.

***This book was previously published as Kill Me (Blood Chord #1) in 2012. After another round of edits, it now includes new content-- though the essential plot has not changed. Readers of the original trilogy can pick back up with the fourth book, Something Bound.***
Claire hasn't been back to Italy since she played a game of supernatural-chicken with a crazy witch and won herself a castle. That whole mess left a bad taste in her mouth and regret dripping from her fangs, but the crumbling relic won't repair itself and the inhabitants of Casa Creepy have been left on their own for far too long.
A request from the head of the European Vampires, for Claire's unique brand of spook-like services, is the nudge she needs to get on a plane to Italy, pronto! She'll kill two problems with one trans-Atlantic flight and get paid to hunt. Maybe dig up a little wicked fun if time allows.
It's was good plan. Too bad it didn't include a stitched-together monster on a rampage, uncloaking a demon that's hotter than hell and packing a secret, or the stranger flashing power around the city and scaring the locals. What they say about the best laid plans is true... they always go to Hell in a hand-basket.
Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris will appreciate this dark romp through the world of fangs and freaks that Alex Owens has crafted.

After the disastrous trip that ended her life, Claire needs to get her magic and blood-lust under control. And let's be honest, she could stand to rein in the regular ol' lust too. Even so, thanks to her Vampire Disability Fund, life is good. Well, as good as it can be for an un-dead, single-mom.
But then two brothers buy the fixer-upper next door. Never mind that one's a sin waiting to happen and the other is a bit of a jerk, neighbors are bad news for a vampire in training. Plus, Claire can't shake the feeling someone's stalking her. Since she hasn't heard from her maker, Bette, or the other members of the Triad since Florida, she's on her own.
Will Claire's innate magic, pearly fangs and biting wit be enough to help her through the incoming storm of trouble? Or will the darkness circling end up being her downfall?

For Claire, life is good. She's single-mommin'-it like a boss, she can finally wield magic without setting things on fire, and she's found a way to feed that doesn't involve venipuncture-- though there's still a fair amount of poking involved.
But the past can be a real witch, and there's no telling when it'll come back to curse you, or how badly it's gonna sting. And sting it does. While helping Clive, the Vamp-POTUS, with the conclave at his D.C compound, Claire's life implodes all over the dang place and she finds herself jetting to Italy, desperate to save everyone she loves. Even that's a long shot, but there's no way she can save 'em all.
The time has come for Claire to nut up, or shut up.
