Image of Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, Book 1)

A strong heroine with unusual talents kicks off the entertaining new Jane Yellowrock series. It's a blend of genres, mixing alternate reality, fantasy and romance against the backdrop of New Orleans. The first-person narration puts you in the middle of the conflict, and well-written action scenes get your blood pumping.

They say she was raised by wolves, but Jane Yellowrock has no memory of her first 12 years. She thinks she's Cherokee, and she knows she's a skinwalker, probably the last of her kind. Jane can take the shape of almost any animal -- and she hunts vampires.

Katherine Fonteneau, an old and powerful vamp and the madam of Katie's Ladies, hires Jane to track and dispatch a rogue vampire. Jane tries to focus on the mission, but a hot Cajun biker catches her eye. Now she's put herself in real danger -- and all her preconceptions about vampires will be challenged.
