After meeting his maker on the battlefields of the First World War, Cameron Blair has spent almost a century coming to terms with his new vampire identity. Along with a taste for human blood and lapdogs, he has acquired the linguistic skills of his victims and learned to survive in the shady underbellies of Europe's great cities. The end of Language in the Blood sees Cameron facing a dilemma when blame for one of his kills gets laid at his best friend George's feet. Cameron discovers a deeply buried vestige of humanity and surrenders to the French authorities - a decision he soon regrets as it becomes clear they don't have quite the same heroic role for a vampire agent in mind that his own vivid imagination does. Locked up, his needs denied, misunderstood and plagued by an unhealthy obsession with his friend's daughter, the bored vampire edges close to insanity. Before long, Cameron starts plotting his escape.
As a massive outbreak of supernatural Visitors baffles Scotland Yard and causes protests throughout London, Lockwood & Co. continue to demonstrate their effectiveness in exterminating spirits. Anthony Lockwood is dashing, George insightful, and Lucy dynamic, while the skull in the jar utters sardonic advice from the sidelines. There is a new spirit of openness in the team now that Lockwood has shared some of his childhood secrets, and Lucy is feeling more and more as if her true home is at Portland Row. It comes as a great shock, then, when Lockwood and George introduce her to an annoyingly perky and hyper-efficient new assistant, Holly Munro. Meanwhile, there are reports of many new hauntings, including a house where bloody footprints are appearing, and a department store full of strange sounds and shadowy figures. But ghosts seem to be the least of Lockwood & Co.'s concerns when assassins attack during a carnival in the center of the city. Can the team get past their personal issues to save the day on all fronts, or will bad feelings attract yet more trouble?

Now, with five million reasons to write off men for good, she returns to Charleston, broke and groveling at her mother’s feet. Living again in the opulent mansion on South Battery, Abby is thrown another curve ball. Her mother passes away, leaving Abby with an enormous home but no money to support it.

Donovan has a few secrets of his own that he doesn’t want to share. Revealing their secrets to each other is the only way they can move forward as a couple, but a wrench is suddenly thrown into their plans when Luke Baker arrives in Charleston, ready to make amends with Ellie and take her home.

He also lives thirteen hundred miles away in St. Thomas—smack in the middle of hurricane alley. A girl can’t catch a break—or can she? A chance meeting with hunky Dan DeLong, a sexy, tan veterinarian with Caribbean-blue eyes, might be exactly what the doctor ordered. Even better, he’s local, the perfect age, and has never been married. Is the third time the charm? Have the trifecta gods handed her the man of her dreams—and does she even want one? She wonders if she can actually find the perfect man and her own paradise right here, in the city she loves most—Charleston.
