The second of two prequel stories to Jocelynn Drake’s Angel’s Ink.
Gage’s ex-girlfriend is back in town and needs help escaping a master vampire. While not the easiest of tasks, he certainly didn’t count of getting help from a mysterious woman with a few secrets of her own.
Gage’s tattoo business is growing and he is looking to add another artist to his shop. When the mysterious woman walks in looking for a job, he never expected it to lead to a showdown with a master vampire.
Trixie is new in town and she has her own secrets. She needs Gage’s help to save their mutual friend Jo from a master vampire. She uses her need for a job to get her foot in the door. Once there she has to convince Gage that he is the only one that can help save Jo.
Gage tries to stay below the radar as much as possible and going after a master vampire is sure to draw attention to him. He knows he can’t turn his back on Jo, even though he didn’t even know she was back in town. All he has to do is figure how to get her out, when she says she’s fine.
This is the second short novella in the Asylum Tales series and can be read as a stand-alone before Angel’s Ink. It is action packed and full of interesting characters, including favorites Gage and Bronx. I loved the addition Jo and Trixie to the mix.
Trixie was an interesting addition to the mix; she’s smart, strong and loyal to her friends. She is willing to do whatever it takes to save Jo from the master vampire. She is also mysterious and has some secrets of her own so she fits right in with Gage and Bronx.
Jo is Gage’s ex and she’s back in town. She is living with a master vampire that doesn’t treat her good but she’s ok with that. She has her reasons why she doesn’t want anyone to interfere on her behalf.
