Description

Ambushed. Blindfolded. Kidnapped by vampires. Edie Spence must race against time to save herself and her baby from the nightmare that flows through her veins

As a nurse in the hospital's secret Y4 ward, Edie has seen her share of daytimers. Once-ordinary humans who've tasted vampire blood, daytimers are doomed to serve their nighttime masters. Forever. And now Edie has to face something even more horrifying: she's become one too

BLOODSHIFTED
Abducted by the vampire Raven, Edie is taken to the catacombs beneath the Catacombs, an ironically-named L.A. night club that supplies fresh blood and other favors for its vampire Masters. Edie has no intention of swapping her nurse's uniform for a cocktail dress not when her newborn infant needs her. But if she and Asher her shapeshifter fiance can't figure out a way to bleed Raven's power, they may never get out of this plasma-soaked pleasure palace undead or alive.

"Alexander takes her noir urban fantasy to a new level a lively, addictive story that leaves you wanting more." "RT Book Reviews "on" Shapeshifted"

"""Cassie Alexander's first book about Nurse Edie Spence is dark and energetic. You'll really enjoy it; I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series." Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Sackhouse series.

Praise For Bloodshifted

Praise for the Edie Spence series

"Dark and clever full moon insanity that will get into your blood, crawl under your skin and haunt your dreams." Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dark Hunter series"Cassie Alexander’s first book about Nurse Edie Spence is dark and energetic. You’ll really enjoy it; I’m looking forward to reading the others in the series."Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author of the Southern Vampire Mysteries "I was swept away in the force with which it built and the raging rush to the finish. I'm more attached to Edie than ever. This is urban fantasy of the highest order." —Angieville"An innovative read that offers a whole new look at paranormal creatures and the humans who happen to live in their world. Readers are sure to enjoy this book, and will be eager to see what awaits Edie next." —RT Book Reviews"I enjoyed every bit of this book. Edie Spence series is for sure one of the best UF books around." —Under the Covers"Immense fun with incredible world building. Alexander adds wonderful new facets to old myths and legends and a completely new spin on everything." —Fangs for the Fantasy"Steamy and entertaining…Edie’s growing personality—and the cliffhanger ending—will keep fans hooked." —Publishers Weekly"Full of action, fantastic characters and situations that will make you want to kick some bad guys where it counts." —Urban Fantasy Investigations"The story is richly detailed, the plot is complex and Edie Spence is absolutely delightful. A winning blend that’s not to be missed." —Rabid Reads"Moonshifted is even better than the first. There was more action, more snarkiness, and even more sexiness. I can’t wait to read more from Alexander and more about Edie Spence." – Book Sake"The best debut  I’ve read all year. Nightshifted is simply amazing!"Kat Richardson, bestselling author of the Greywalker series "Edie Spence has a distinctive, appealing and no-nonsense style that you won’t quickly forget. Add to that a paranormal population that needs medical care for some very odd reasons, and you have a winner of a debut novel."Kate Elliott, author of the Cold Magic series "Fresh, exciting, dark, and sexy, Nightshifted is excellent urban fantasy that grabs you by the throat and pulls you along for a wild ride. Cassie Alexander is an author to watch!" Diana Rowland, author of Mark of The Demon"A fast, sexy return to the utterly unique world of Edie Spence. Moonshifted takes the world Cassie Alexander presented in Nightshifted and adds a whole new level of danger and intrigue.  Absolutely recommended."Seanan McGuire, award-winning author of Ashes of Honor"Alexander’s first novel launches a new series that should appeal to fans of medical thrillers as well as urban fantasy." —Library Journal "Nightshifted is like a dark and twisted version of Grey’s Anatomy with vampires, zombies, and werewolves taking up residence in County Hospital’s Y4 wing…The story moves at a similar pace to a hospital setting where there are small lulls in action and with sudden, even frantic bursts of action. That sort of pacing made Nightshifted an exciting read as I was constantly on edge, waiting to see what was going to happen next." —All Things Urban Fantasy

"I loved this book. What a breath of fresh air! A very strong start to what promises to be a wonderful new series!" —My Bookish Ways

"Nightshifted brought me back to E.R. with the added fun of paranormal creatures… because it is a fresh voice and premise among the crowded shelves of Urban Fantasy, I eagerly anticipate what’s in store next for Edie and her colleagues." —Clear Eyes Full Shelves"Alexander has created a wonderful world of paranormal that we don’t usually get to see. Edie Spence is so wonderfully human in a world of ghost CD players, vampires, zombies, weres, shifters and crappy pay checks. Read this book and you will be swooning (I promise), yelling and laughing all at the same time. A must read indeed!" —Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy"Edie is a fun character with heart and charisma, making it easy to fall for her and want to see her succeed in all of her adventures, whether they be dealing with paranormal patients, evil vampires, or potential lovers. If you like your urban fantasy to have a dose of romance, then Nightshifted is for you. Highly recommended." —The Debut Review"Edie is stone cold awesome. She’s scrappy, fiercely independent, and by the time the conclusion came around I wanted to share a fist bump of solidarity with her." —The Book Smugglers
