Author: Cindy A. Matthews

Cindy grew up watching Star Trek and reading the science fiction classics along with Harlequin romances. Somewhere along the line she figured it was just as fun to write stories as it was to read them. The BloodDark series (co-written with her husband) is her first YA science fiction series. She writes contemporary and fantasy romantic-comedies as Cynthianna. She also writes SF/vampire erotic-romance under the pen name of Celine Chatillon.

It's good to return home--or is it? A year after Olivia Brown's abduction by vampiric aliens, she isn't sure where she belongs anymore. On Earth, she's told to forget her adventures and go to college. But evidence of wrongdoing by the Pure Bloods prompt fellow Resistance fighter Annara to concoct a plan to spy on Clan Alpha. Are the Alphans dealing with billionaire Roland Grundfest, a man willing to supply "vampire brides" for a price to serve their needs for fresh DNA on BloodDark?

To become a spy, Olivia must do more than dye her hair and change her clothing tastes--she must lie to both her parents and her Quadsang boyfriend, Hernando. A little white lie can't hurt, can it? Once again on BloodDark, Olivia realizes she needs friends like Valori, whose psychic powers can incapacitate hired killers. Will Olivia return to Earth ever again?
