The Camellia Series, Book 4:
Camellia goes all the way to California to get away from trouble. Too bad trouble has a way of catching up.
Sunshine and a cottage near the sea. In California, Camellia starts over. New name, new job, no impossible choices. Sure, it is hard not to be suspicious of friendly strangers, but Camellia is mellowing. Until a vampire tries to steal her car. Camellia kills him and the goons sent to pay her back for the murder.
When the head vampire shows up seeking restitution, he gives her an ultimatum: join him or go to war and die. Camellia isn’t sure which option is the worst.
