Dark Wine at Midnight (A Hill Vampire Novel) (Volume 1)

Dr. Cerissa Patel’s a scientist, not a secret agent. But when the Lux order her to spy on the vampires she’s trying to help, she has no choice, not with the fate of humanity on the line. Her cover story seems easy enough: become a vampire’s envoy, and sign-up investors from among the secret vampire communities to finance her biotech research lab. At least, it looks easy until an assassination attempt leaves the Hill vampires suspicious of her arrival. They don’t want her—or her research lab—in their small town. Worse, she must ignore her growing attraction to Henry Bautista, a vampire winemaker with eyes the color of dark bourbon and just as intoxicating—who’s hiding his own deep secrets. He’s rich, dangerous, and as complex as the wines he makes, and he will do anything to stop her from hurting his town. With him watching her every move, she must uncover who’s behind the vampire movement to enslave mortals—before Henry discovers what’s hidden beneath her skin
