This is the age where vampires are of out their "coffins". They are not legal citizens, but somewhat accepted into society.
Sophie D'Angelo runs her fathers three generation private investigation company, Palmetto Private Investigation. Caleb her ex-fiance is her partner in crime, and lives in the attic. Caleb was once a history teacher, and was engaged to Sophie, until the night of his bachelor party. Caleb was attacked by a vampire, Irana, who turns her victims and then runs, leaving them to fend for themselves. Caleb was never accepted into the vampire society, thus why he lives in Sophie's attic.
Sophie and Caleb are soon hired to find missing, Lisa Welch. While trying to put pieces together dead bodies start showing up on Sophie's door step. Someone is leaving them there as a "gift", like a cat with a mouse. Sophie's head is spinning with all the arrows that pointing to this one and that. Sophie soon stumbles unto a prostitution ring. One that is connected to the vampire world.
Rayne Blackwood is the head of the vampire food chain, chancellor to the council. He is not letting anyone bring his vampires down. Not only is he helping Sophie but seems to be alittle sweet on her. What they discover together is shocking. What some do to save the life of a love one can be deadly.
I fell in love with Sophie! She is the oldest of four daughters, each having a unique personality. One dating a werewolf, one in college and one being a psychic who is opening her own store! She runs her the family business and helps her mom pay for the youngest college tuition. This by far was one of my favorite vampire series ! After being almost killed by Caleb's vampire girlfriend, Mercy, Sophie keeps her head up and keeps fighting ! I look forward to reading more in this series ;)
