Second Bite

If it were up to Olivia, she’d be getting a bikini wax.

But no, she’s surrounded by vampires at the fifteen hundredth re-birthday party of their leader.

Now with access to synthetic and donor blood, vampires boldly live amongst the same humans they used to secretly feed on.

What’s strange is that Olivia seems to be the only one who has a problem with them.

Matters get worse when she has trouble controlling her feelings for Daniel—her kind, handsome and honest colleague who so happens to be a vamp.

The idea of going for long romantic walks on the beach is certainly out the window now.
