We aren't your mama's vampires... and we don't sparkle.
Serena isn’t your typical vampire. She drinks holy water for breakfast and her boss runs the Vatican. However, life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. Her relationship is in the crapper, and she’s asking herself the age-old question, “Should I stay or should I go?”
Change is hard, especially for an immortal.
For three centuries, two things have remained constant –Nicholai and her job. Working as an assassin for one of the most influential forces in history has its perks, but lately, business is slow. That changes when Nicholai’s human descendant is murdered, and he’s the prime suspect.
As the body count rises, Serena and Nicholai are forced to work together to find the killer before it’s too late. The problem is…the more they discover, the more they’re convinced the murderer is one of their own. Worse still, proving him guilty could lead to a rebellion.
On the bright side, there’s nothing like a war to put the spark back in a 300-year-old marriage.
You’ll adore this urban fantasy series, because everyone loves a tale of redemption and second chances.
**Previously published as Feast of Reverence.**
Courtesan, assassin, bartender on Bourbon Street –for a vampire, Gia has had some seriously messed up jobs. She thought she’d seen it all, especially when it came to men. However, no amount of on the job training could have prepared her to become the rope in a game of tug-of-war between two powerful vampires…
The thing is, following her heart could end in bloodshed – including hers.
As if she didn’t have enough on her plate, someone or something is killing her friends in the most horrific ways possible.
On the bright side, hunting down monsters, and cleaning up a trail of bodies, is far more important than relationship issues. A woman has to keep her priorities straight, after all.
Unfortunately, the biggest monster of all is one she never saw coming.
You’ll adore this urban fantasy series, because everyone loves a tale of true love conquering all…including death.
**Previously published as Feast of the Epiphany.**
Marin McLeod woke up a week after graduating law school as a vampire.
Cool right? Wrong.
Not when her human friends are off-limits, and the immortals she knows are centuries older, wiser, and terrifying. Not when said immortals are so beautiful, she can’t help but feel like an ugly duckling.
Definitely not when “One of these things is not like the other…one of these things doesn’t belong…” becomes her theme song.
Certainly not when her cheating ex-boyfriend is horrifically killed, turned into a vampire, and is sexier than ever…and is determined to get a second chance.
And absolutely not when her boss’s, boss’s, boss shows up in New Orleans to investigate her new family’s alleged crimes, and insists she work as his assistant. Not when failure means the people, she’s come to love, will be sentenced to death.
You’ll adore this urban fantasy series, because everyone loves a tale of an underdog saving the world…with a little help from her cheating ex.
**Previously published as Feast of Mercy**
They say you never forget your first love…
and for a vampire, never is a heck of a long time.
Joliette spent three centuries imprisoned in a silver-lined coffin with nothing to do but think… about the person who put her there and the man who broke her heart. The thing is, she can’t help but wonder if they were one in the same.
Lysander is duty-bound to execute rogue immortals. His loyalty to the cause has never faltered—until he comes face to face with Joliette, a rebel, and the only woman he’s ever loved.
After an eternity fighting on opposite sides of an ancient war, Lysander and Joliette must learn to trust each other in order to save themselves from a new evil that threatens to destroy everything and everyone they hold dear.
You’ll adore this urban fantasy series, because everyone loves a story of first loves and second chances…even if they are centuries in the making.

Imagine finally meeting your fated mate. Now imagine if he’s in love with your mother.
Yeah, it sucks, but it’s pretty much the story of Bianca’s life.
Since clawing her way out of the grave as a vampire, the elders have whispered of a prophecy. A prophecy of an immortal who will save the world. So what if she checks every box? That doesn’t mean the ancients were talking about her.
Seriously, how can she possibly be this so-called savior when she can’t stop thinking naughty thoughts about a man who drives her nucking futs?
Destined to rule the Aether, Blaise must find the fabled Scion in order to save his people. But he’s made a mistake. A big one. One there’s no coming back from.
With a war raging, a young child missing, and friends dying, Blaise must convince the world’s most infuriating woman of her destiny, or die trying. The problem is, Bianca might be the one to drive a stake through his heart…and he’d probably deserve it. No. He’d definitely deserve it.
You’ll adore this urban fantasy series, because everyone loves a enemy to lovers story…even if it is centuries in the making.

Brutal, cruel, tender and sexy - A story of choices and long-lasting consequences of frivolous decisions and the impact of your choices on those you love. ★★★★★ – Amazon Reader
The story is full of surprises, particularly the end, and is well written, though in a clipped style. I think it would be enjoyed by any urban fantasy fan, especially those who like a little Christian mysticism in their stories. ★★★★★ - Awesome Indies

It is very difficult for an independent author to step into a well-established literary archetype and handle it as marvelously as Kathryn M. Hearst does in Blood Awakening. The first book in the Immortal Reign series showcases the author’s thorough understanding of the common tropes of the vampire genre while confidently setting her foot in the sand as a new voice with new ideas in an otherwise crowded section of the bookshelf. ★★★★★ - Awesome Indies

The old adage that sequels never live up to their predecessors is no longer correct, and this sequel to "Blood Awakening" is amazing and powerful. First, I love the way that Hearst writes. It's her writing style and storytelling that is unique to her, a very big kudos for any writer, and she has what it takes. ★★★★★ – Amy's Bookshelf Reviews
