Caroline I: Emergency Call

Caroline Malveaux, the eldest daughter of Louisiana’s richest family, has it all: money, power, and a bright future. No family like the Malveauxes rises to power without blood on their hands, though, and Caroline’s own are far from clean.

Caroline II: Riches to Rags

Everyone says Caroline Malveaux is a hero for saving those girls’ lives. She couldn’t feel more worthless. A spiral of reckless partying leads to the worst night of her life… and eternity as a vampire, all without a sire to guide her. If she can’t navigate the terrifying world of the Kindred on her own—and deal with her too-inquisitive family—eternity could be short indeed.

Caroline IV: Killing Secrets

There’s been a death in the family.

Hers could tear apart the city if it got out. Powerful forces will do anything to prevent that. Yet even these secrets pale before a revelation that could propel Caroline to greatness… or destroy her utterly.

Caroline has six months to bring down a network of hunters or die. So decrees the seneschal of the city, Philip Maldonato. As Caroline feverishly works to carve out a power base, Antoine Savoy, the Lord of the French Quarter, bears offers that are increasingly difficult to refuse. It would be so much easier to betray the seneschal and his prince. What have they done for her?

Yet, when a dark figure approaches Caroline claiming to repay an old debt, matters may not be so simple. She’s powerful, terrible, and utterly unknowable. If her gifts can be trusted, Caroline’s most burning question will be answered… and nothing will be the same.
