Sanguinary, by Margo Bond Collins
A Night Shift Novel
Detective Cami Davis and her sexy, cowboy-turned-vampire informant are all that’s standing between humanity and monsters who would rule the world—and all that’s standing between them having a torrid love affair is the fact that he’s an enemy of humanity.
THROUGH DARKEST TEMPTATION
When Dallas police detective Cami Davis joined the city’s vampire unit, she planned to use the job as a stepping-stone to a better position in the department. She didn’t know then what she knows now: A silent war rages between humans and their supposedly pacified predators, and the vampires are winning. With the clock running out on her kind, Cami will do whatever she must to defeat the “Sanguinary.”
Enter Reese Fulton, a disaffected ex-cop and a vampire. She can’t exactly trust him, but with his cowboy boots and good-ole-boy drawl he’s the perfect beard for Cami’s fledgling undercover operation. Yet playing Reese’s Claimed—a vampire’s personal bloodgiver—isn’t as straightforward as she was led to believe. His bite is as enthralling as his dimpled smile, and soon Cami is wondering which will pose more of a challenge: subduing the enemies of humanity…or her own desire.
As Garrett and I headed down the street toward the Blood House, my partner pushed his shirtsleeves up until the vampire bite marks on his inner elbows showed clearly, like ammo loaded into a bandolier, marching up his arm and tracing along the blue vein that showed underneath. There were more of them since the last time I’d looked.
I wasn’t sure how fucked up Garrett really was—or rather, whether or not it mattered that Garrett stayed seriously fucked up, both physically and mentally—but knowing he wasn’t a hundred percent made me even more wary than I might have been otherwise.
“You good?” he asked, glancing at me out of the corner of his eye. I wanted to make him stop and go over the plan one more time—but really, it was fairly straightforward.
“Good enough,” I said. “We get in, I pretend to hook up with some cowboy vampire, we get out.”
