Once Bitten, Twice Shy
Before she joined Reaper in hunting Gregor's gang of rogue bloodsuckers, privileged princess Topaz was gunning for just one vamp: Jack Heart. The gorgeous con man had charmed his way into her bed, her heart and her bank account, taking her for half a million dollars and vanishing without a word.
Now she and Jack – maddeningly attractive as ever – are supposedly on the same side. As Reaper's ragtag outfit scatters, Topaz sets out to solve a mystery that's plagued her all her lives, mortal and immortal: what really happened to her movie-star mother, who died when Topaz was just a baby? With four men claiming to be her father, why has she always been alone? And what stake does Jack have in discovering the truth about her past? Topaz is sure he's up to something – but her suspicions are at war with her desires...
New York Times and USA Today bestselling, RITA® Award winning Author Maggie Shayne published 62 novels and 22 novellas for five major publishers over the course of 22 years. She also spent a year writing for American daytime TV dramas Guiding Light and As the World Turns, and was offered the position of co-head writer of the former; an offer she tearfully turned down. It was scary, turning down an offer that big. But in March 2014, she did something even scarier. She left her job with the world’s largest publisher, and went “indie.” And it has gone so well that by July 2015 she had incorporated her new business, Thunderfoot Publishing Inc. She’s never enjoyed her career more.
