The Purloined Pint

(Purloined pint #1)

Eddie Vangh has kept a secret for seventy years--he’s a vampire. Converted as an American soldier in Germany in 1945, Eddie does not feed on human prey, he gets his blood from his own plasma firm. He thinks he is the only vampire in Seattle, but all that’s about to change.

A Crime That Cannot Be Reported

Spartak Newmark, a wealthy aerospace company owner, calls Eddie and tells him that he wants him to investigate a theft. When Eddie meets Spartak, he soon discovers why this crime has not been reported to the authorities: blood and blood products were stolen. Spartak is also a vampire, and what has been taken from him is invaluable encapsulated blood from very old vampires.

Eddie’s Biggest Client Could Be His Last

As it turns out, there are a number of vampires in Seattle, some far more dangerous than others. Finally, Eddie isn’t alone, he’s fallen in love and no longer feels completely isolated, but getting the stolen blood back could cost him everything, and failing to do so will prove fatal.

Paulie Zahn Vampire Huntress

(purloined pint #2)

The last thing Sargent Paulie Zahn expects when she wakes up in a strange hospital is to be told that a Rogue Vampire bit her.

Worse, she must cope with the inexplicable changes her body's going through: she's stronger, faster, and she feels and senses things she never believed to be possible. Her mentor, Eddie Vangh, has been a Vampire since World War II. He wants to teach her how to live by the code of his clan, which includes not directly feeding off human beings.

Caught in between two worlds, not fully human and not completely vampire, Paulie must navigate the inner-workings and conflicts among the different Vampire groups--including figuring out the plan the Council of Elders has in store for her. But the Rogue Vampires aren't done with her yet, and she must use all her wit and skill to help take them down.

Paulie Zahn may not have fangs, but her bite is as deadly as they come.
