Charlotte is from [...]

Jane and her fiancé, Walter, are finally getting married. There is one problem, though: Walter has no idea that Jane is a vampire [...]

Attracted to Fire by DiAnn Mills

This was a great book.  Ash, the agent in charge is painted as a man who thinks women should not be with the secret service, however Meghan has a plan to change his mind. It was written with a great twist, and that is the best element of all. I would recommend this book to [...]
