Favorite Quote: “You gonna put on your big girl panties and fight with the boys, now?“
“Who says I wear panties?”
The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires—those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted—are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets.
But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill—even for a pro like Jane. Now, her simple job has turned into a fight to stay alive…and to protect the desperately ill child left in her care. (Goodreads)
Blood Trade picks up not long after Death’s Rival ended. Jane Yellowrock, skinwalker and vampire enforcer, is still incredibly angry that her employer and Master Vampire Leo Pellissier forced a bond on her beast with the help of his primo, Bruiser Add in her argument with Rick and her guilt over killing her best friend’s sister; Jane is suffering from severe depression. She decides that getting out of town for awhile would be good for her and when she’s offered a job by the Master Vampire of Natchez, she grabs her boys and jumps on it. His city is being overrun by plague carrying vampires who have gone rogue. When she arrives in Mississippi, she is contacted by an old “friend” who needs her help. Misha was raised in the same group home as Jane and is now carrying for a mutual disabled friend of theirs and her daughter, who is deathly ill. Misha wants Jane to help her with writing her vampire book, but she goes missing and leaves both her charges with Jane. As Jane struggles with the rogue vampires who are like nothing she has seen before and trying to find Misha, she discovers a link between the two which if not brought into check, could spell the end for everyone-human and supernatural alike.
