Blood and Violets
Marie doesn’t know how she managed to get herself kidnapped by a vampire or how she can possibly be having such uncomfortably lusty feelings for him when he’s holding her a prisoner. Alexander wants a protégé, and this snarky, obnoxious young woman is absolutely perfect. He just has to manage his growing attraction to his feisty prisoner and keep her out of the way long enough to complete a vital business arrangement before proceeding with his plan. Meanwhile, a shadowy group known as Carpe Sanguis is out to not only stop Alexander’s plans but take his very life.
