​Genre: Paranormal  Erotica Thriller

​After being unemployed for a year, William finally receives a call to come into Elite Surrogates and Adoption (ESA) for an interview. The sterile white interior does nothing for his confidence as he’s led to Sadie Jone’s (HR manager’s) office where she proceeds to question him about his job experience and reproductive knowledge. 

It all goes well until William realizes that he’s going to have to “perform” for the job. Fifty dollars an hour would help him catch up on his mortgage and get his wife to stop nagging him about the bills, but using his own semen to propagate the reproductive cycle is more than a little weird.

Genre: Paranormal, Vampire, Erotica

William Wilson is torn as a new clinic director (Kane Devonshire) takes over ESA and continues to sell babies as vampire food. While William doesn’t believe the vampire is worse than Blackwell, his Bonded just might be. The violent redhead has been known to attack every human she encounters. She’s unpredictable, dangerous and might just have to be put down along with Kane.

The only question is how. Kane immediately forced William, Sadie, Bill and Dr. Jones to drink his blood, and with a Sunday night meeting looming, William is certain everyone at ESA will have to drink vampire blood or risk being murdered. With everyone at ESA under the control of Kane, they either need to find a new untainted employee, or they must convince another vampire to kill Kane.
