Meet Merit, a "wonderfully compelling vampire heroine" (USA Today bestselling author Julie Kenner). Chicago is beset by supernatural tensions, and Merit-vampire protector of a safe haven called Cadogan house-is worried that the humans will be reaching for their pitchforks any minute. It doesn't help that yet another vampire rave is broken up by the mayor, and a new inhibition- reducing drug is circulating through the community. It's up to Merit to put her house in order-literally. And if that takes getting a little blood on her hands, so be it.
About the Author
Chloe Neill is the author of the Chicagoland Vampires Novels, including Dark Debt, Blood Games, and Biting Bad, and Dark Elite novels, including Charmfall, Hexbound, and Firespell. She was born and raised in the South but now makes her home in the Midwest--just close enough to Cadogan House and St. Sophia's to keep an eye on things. When not transcribing Merit's and Lily's adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys--her favorite landscape photographer (her husband) and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)
