Jenn Lyons lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, three cats and a nearly infinite number of opinions on anything from feminism to the correct way to make a martini. She writes science-fiction, fantasy and urban fantasy. Her debut novel is Blood Chimera, and she is writing the follow-up, Blood Sin.
Kidnap and Ransom negotiation used to be straightforward. The bad guys kidnapped someone, and K&R expert Jackson Pastor would negotiate their release, preferably without involving police, FBI, or bloodthirsty monsters.
Especially without involving the bloodthirsty monsters.
But when Jackson Pastor arrives in Los Angeles to help a new client recover his kidnapped wife, he fails on all counts and finds himself dropped in the middle of a 500-year-old war between rival European and Mexican vampire clans, a conflict that threatens to escalate into a full-on public gang war.
Jackson only wants to rescue an innocent woman before she’s murdered, but when over half a billion dollars is on the line, no one’s motives are pure. Jackson may have to do the last thing he should — turn to a secret division of FBI monster hunters and their very dangerous wizard leader — if he wants to survive.
There’s only one problem:
Jackson’s one of the monsters himself.
