Synopsis from Goodreads

How far would you go to save your sister?

Life as a college senior is stressful enough. Between mid-terms, stupid boys, and a rare blood condition, Eliza Landry is just trying to figure out what normal is—whatever that means—when she discovers that vampires aren’t just a thing of legend.

In a matter of moments, her life changes forever when she and her older sister Kate suffer a vampire attack which leaves Eliza with two puncture wounds on her neck and an allergy to sunlight. But she’s still human, or at least she thinks she is. It doesn’t really matter—her main concern is that her sister is missing.

Sorrow turns to obsession, leading Eliza to piece together the puzzle of that terrifying night. Even stumbling upon a millennia-old vampire assassin named Luke Conrad who either wants to kill her or kiss her (she can't decide) cannot deter her.

When bodies start piling up and one of them is supposedly Kate, Eliza and Luke set out to discover who is behind the attacks. Soon, Eliza is drawn into the dark and dangerous world of the undead, with no guarantee she’ll make it out alive, and no doubt that she won’t like what she finds.

It’s not something I’m often willing to discuss (and most definitely not in mixed company), but I fall head over heels, every single time, for an alpha male. As a strong, independent, free-thinking feminist, it can be difficult to admit that I’m most attracted to a man who has the ability to railroad me at every turn. But I am. And I don’t care how far back in time I’m setting women.

Falling in love with the alpha male is easy. He’s strong, not just physically but emotionally. A true alpha male shares his feelings because he’s secure in who he is and doesn’t need to pretend to be invincible. He’s comfortable telling the woman he loves that he wants her and that he needs her. And he’s also confident enough that he isn’t going to roll over just because she tells him to. He will, however, protect her at all costs because by keeping her safe, he’s keeping himself safe. An alpha male knows what he has to offer his woman and he knows what she can offer him. He isn’t afraid of commitment and when he decides to be with one woman, he will be. He’s not perfect, he’s usually bossy and can keep a level head even when his woman has flown into hysterics (which can really annoy those of us prone to flying into hysterics.)

No matter how much I love the alpha male, I don’t always write him into a book. Characters come to me as they are and I can’t just ask them to be someone they’re not. But they are my favorite kind of male lead to read about because even when he’s insufferable he’s well-meaning and he always tries to take care of his woman.


About J. C. Emery

As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor’s degree in English. As it is for most writers, finding balance is a challenge.

JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. She was born to a pair of crazy amazing parents whom she often draws inspiration from and who have supported her no matter how flighty her ambitions may be. She is blessed with a sister, eleven years her junior, who she also calls her friend. With the support and encouragement of her parents behind her, JC set out to figure out what she wanted to do when she grew up. Most days, the jury is still out; but the thing that stuck with her no matter what she pursued was her love of the written word.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries; but she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.
