Bloodshifted-Cassie Alexander

Lovers Dr. Asher the shapeshifter and Nurse Edie Spence left County Hospital’s secret Y4 ward for paranormal patients on the Maraschino cruise ship bound for Hawaii.  However, a maniac released an infectious disease that killed most humans on board.  Pregnant Edie survived by drinking vampire blood that turned her into a daytimer.  The price Edie pays is that Raven the vampire whose blood saved her and her unborn owns her (see Deadshifted).

Forced to separate from beloved Asher, Edie, like her lover, struggles to find a cure that will liberate her from the vampire’s control or endure eight months protecting her son in hell.  Instead her Master Vampire Raven abducts the nurse and takes her underneath the Catacombs night club known for serving fresh blood cocktails.

The final Edie Spence paranormal (see Moonshifted, Nightshifted and Shapeshifted) is an exciting thriller that starts at hyperspeed and never slows down.  For the most part, the bloody exhilarating focus is on the beleaguered heroine’s efforts for her and her son to endure as she envisions the afterward as a family with her son and Asher (mindful of Dr. Viktor E. Frankl’s incredible memoir Man's Search for Meaning).
