Gillian Key is a psychologist who treats paramortals: vampires, ghosts, were or shapeshifters… She's also a retired US Marine Corp Capt specializing in extractions, surveillance, and assassination. She's actually a combination psychologist/military specialist and while she's in the Carpathian mountains to treat a vampire, Count Aleksei Rachlav, and ghost, Dante Montefiore, she's checking on rumors of a vampire rebellion or take over. Already we know we're in for something a bit different and you won't be disappointed. From official release/information:
From back of book: Meet Gillian Key, a paramortal psychologist who can treat the mental distress of nonhumans--and a Marine Special Forces operative who can get physical with them when the situation calls for it.
Gillian's two worlds collide when she travel to the Carpathian Mountains in Romania to counsel a dangerously attractive local master vampire--and becomes embroiled in a brewing turf war with the legendary Dracula.
