THE IVORY BLAQUE SERIES
In The God Killers, the First Book of The God Killers Legacy, former professional art thief Ivory Blaque is hired to procure a pair of antique pistols and gets much more than she bargained for when several attempts are made on her life. Her client turns out to be a shadowy government agent who reveals that she is descended from a race of immortals and that the pistols are linked to her unique heritage and the special psychic gifts she possesses.
He uses the memory of her father to guilt her into working for him. Ivory eventually gives in to his request, and in return, he presents her with her father’s journal, which was written in an unbreakable code. Bishop believes that she is the only one capable of breaking the code and unlocking the plans of the vampire hierarchy.
But when the city’s top vampire is a sexy incubus with an attraction for her and she’s assigned a hot new Lycan enforcer to protect her, she finds herself caught between two sets of rock-hard abs. To regain her autonomy, clear her name, unlock the secrets of her past, and protect the lives of those closest to her, Ivory must play along with the forces trying to manipulate her. Ivory’s life is rapidly spiraling out of control and headed for an explosive conclusion which she just might not survive.
