The Immortal Twin (The Immortal Detective)
One twin’s immortality could lead to the other’s end.
Celeste Torok and her twin brother Nick could not be more different. Celeste is as introverted as Nick is charismatic. There is one thing, though, they have in common: they are mortal. Their immortal adoptive parents made sure of that.
When Nick’s rebellious ways place Celeste in danger, she is forced to seek safety in the Midwest. As if the familial alienation isn’t enough, she’s tormented by her forbidden desire for Tristan, the supreme warrior of her parents’ coalition, the Realm. With her future uncertain and her past shattered, she follows in her biological father’s footsteps and joins law enforcement.
As lead investigator on several bizarre child abduction cases, Celeste soon discovers that bullets and modern weaponry will not stop these criminals, and that a war is brewing between the Realm and renegade vampires. Celeste joins Tristan, her family, and the rest of the Realm to destroy the renegade vampires once and for all.

About the Author
Once the allure of impersonating celebrities began to wane, D. B. Woodling left the stage and turned her attention to writing. Credited with two historical fiction novels—Shannon’s Revenge: Broken Promises, recognized for its literary merit, and Retribution: A Lover’s Tale—she then switched genres and wrote The Detective Mike Malone series.
Needing a home for an ominous opening line, The Immortal Twin, a paranormal novel, soon began to take shape. Three-winged dragons, undead historical mentors, and police investigations abound in The Immortal Detective, the second installment in Celeste’s journey, with plenty of chilling twists and turns.
When she’s not creating harrowing fight scenes, steamy encounters, or complex police investigations, Woodling calms her soul with scenic walks, often in the company of a clowder of cats or a know-it-all golden retriever.
